Take, for example, a car accident, that happened in, say, the otherwise boring morning of a Monday, 17th August 2009.

Let's assume that a typical Malaysian, let's call him Joe, on his way to KL, and spotted something in a dirty drain-like river.

He stared and stared. What IS that? Is that the roof of a car? Holy ****. I'd better move around for a better view. Oh wait, I must capture this with my camera.

After a while, Joe got tired of looking at the meaningless piece of junk in the river. So he started observing other things. Like how many motorbikers have stopped just to stare at the scrap metal. The stupidity of that.

Like how many drivers have slowed down, wondering what's wrong, causing a massive traffic jam. The absurdity.

Like how many pedestrians stopped, too. In the LRT station.

Along the walkway.

Just about anywhere!

How bizarre!

It was until then that Joe suddenly realised that he was one of the pedestrians. It was then that he decided to blog about this incident, and to use a fake name for himself, and decided that Malaysia is not a good place to be involved in a car accident.

Poor Joe.
