Not plunging exactly but further evidences of how dangerous buses are and proof that they should be registered and the users trained and licensed.

Too many mountains. They should move India to Kansas.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

This meets the ideal contribution to this thread. The report contaibns "Bus", "Gorge" & "Plunge" in the headline.

"Nice bus ya got there guv. Be a shame if anythin' was ta 'appen to it. For 50 quid a week I can guarantee nobody cuts the brake lines."

They should have bought the "insurance."
