Drunk and Escalator,500 Miles, Hilarious Videos.

In Interesting and funny, videos on November 15, 2012 at 07:59

There are Drunks and Drunks.

There was an instance of a Drunk walking 500 miles up  in an Escalator.

There is also an excellent compilation of Drunks in YouTube.

Now the latest to the list is a business man who kept on going the wrong way in the Escalator ,Blind Drunk, in Tottenham Court Road,London.

Negotiating the London Underground can be a trying ordeal at the best of times.

A Drunk.

But it all got a bit too much for this ‘drunk’ businessman who was so determined to reach his platform he attempted to walk the wrong way down an escalator.

A fellow commuter captured this footage of the business person, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, trying to ride down to the tube on an escalator moving upwards at Tottenham Court Road.

Despite moving absolutely nowhere, the unnamed man continues to take on the escalator with dogged determination.

And he keeps going even when several other passengers point out he is walking the wrong way.

One good Samaritan makes several attempts to lead him off the escalator but the business person takes no notice and continues on his fruitless journey.

After struggling for more than two minutes as people push past – he is guided off by a helpful commuter who pushes the emergency stop button and points him in the right direction.

The incident was caught on camera last Friday by Sam Napper, 27, who described the man as a ‘drunk Japanese businessman’.

Sam, from London, said: ‘I was making my way home after dinner when we quite literally bumped into this chap on the escalators between the Northern and Central Lines at Tottenham Court Road station.

‘At first I thought he was playing silly buggers with a few of his FX Trader mates but then we saw his dogged stagger and realised he was alone.

‘One by one, concerned commuters tried to steer him in the right direction, to no avail.

‘Eventually, someone pushed the emergency stop button.

‘After pausing for a few seconds, he turned around and walked out, as if nothing ever happened, saying nothing, leaving us stunned.’

Watch this as well.

I have a friend of mine who retired as a Supreme Court Judge, India.

Once in Bangalore ( my friend was not a Judge then) we went to Hotel in Bangalore and finished taking meals.

One among the group picked up Beeda, which is given at the end of the Meals in India, from the Table of another man.

He was also drunk.

A quarrel ensured and it was quite loud and embarrassing.

We pacified the Drunks and sort convinced the Hotel Manager that our friend was not Drunk

My friend who later became a Judge jumped up(he was drunk of course) and addressed the Manager.

‘Don’t underestimate us even though we are Drunk!’

Drunks make the otherwise dull and dreary Life.

Train Alerts in Google Maps

In Gadgets on April 7, 2012 at 12:05

Here in India, to introduce a scrolling message for the Name of the Station in Trains is a Policy Decision ans the Indian Railways do not seem to know that it costs very little.

India is a country with a host of languages needs this service immediately.

There was some talk of having introduced this in some train.

This seems to be a well kept secret.

Refers to:

London Underground Alerts

The new update to Google Maps shows you clearly any disruptions on the Underground that are happening at the time you need them most. To view the new London Underground Alerts simply click on a station in a timetable or in the public transport directions results.

As well as adding real-time London Underground service alerts, Google have also included planned engineering works for the weekends in the journey planner as well.

“When planning a trip for the coming weekend, we will show you the relevant subway alerts as part of the directions results. You can plan a trip for the weekend by changing the departure time in the ‘Get directions’ tab. Should there be planned engineering works for your route, you won’t run into any surprises on the day of travel.”
