Prepare to hold your breath

  2. They board trains from both sides in India, they're also very accomplished thieves, slitting luggage open to get at valuables. I lost a Pentax camera on a night train when one of them who'd befriended us at a station removed the carriage light globe so we could all "get to sleep".

    RH, and you fell for that? In a tele play, an Englishman was arrested by police for removing a light bulb, at the behest of an old woman.

    FC, checking tickets inside the train, ignoring what is happening outside.

    Fen, that occurred to me too.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
