9,999,999 absolute idiots

Brian McElwain, a local deputy sheriff, completed the Rickshaw Run, a crazy adventure race across India in motorized, three-wheel rickshaws.

McElwain’s unnamed sidekick blogged as they went. As the pulled into the city of Goalparat he wrote, “It has a population of a measly 10 million. 9,999,999 of which are absolute idiots behind a wheel.”

He elaborated. “What just baffles the mind is no one here is in a hurry to do a damn thing…. UNTIL…. they get behind the wheel of a vehicle…. Absolutely Amazing!!!”
