Reminds me of John Allen's Stegasaurous switcher.

There is a long history of elephants in India being kit by trains. As funny as the photo looks, its actually very dangerous for the animals. I believe elephants are barred from roaming around trains in Thailand for this reason. Thai trains have strict speed limits when traveling through elephant country. India, does not do this.

Cows on the other hand are a different story. They tend to free-range and are hit frequently enough that Thai engineers have a cash box in the cab to pay the owners for any that are hit. One of my trains down to Hat Yai was delayed for about 40 minutes due to such an incident.

As a lifelong Lord of the Rings/Hobbit fan, I find your remark hilarious.  :)


Hmm... I think Kiz would
rather have a hobbit
than me...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
