Recalculating.....make U-turn and drive to indicated route

Seeing the pictures of the Space Shuttle Endeavour making her final journey to the science museum in Los Angeles reminded me of this wonderful report from Mumbai around five years ago.

As the BBC put it, the driver has not been seen since. However, in Indian journalese this would be rendered as "The driver is absconding", a far more delightful phrase. (Indian newspapers are filled with delightfully antiquated and eccentric expressions. In their crime reports police are forever "swooping" to "nab" "miscreants", villages are terrorised by "bandits" or "Naxalites". This guy evidently enjoys it too. And drivers are always absconding.

Update: it was removed, but nobody knows where it went. Which is even funnier.

What yοu said made a lot of sense. However, whаt abоut this?
ωhat if you adԁed а little іnformаtіon?
І am not suggesting your content is not solid, but what if you
added а title to possibly get a pеrson's attention? I mean "Recalculating.....make U-turn and drive to indicated route" is a little vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create news hеadlines to get viewerѕ to open the lіnks.

Υou might tгy аdding a video or a relateԁ pіcture
or two to gеt reаders excited аbout ωhat уοu've written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
