Elephant Attacks Indian Village – India may be Asia’s Florida

Acadia Einstein

Hey! Come back here with my peanuts!

So after reading about the dude who got killed by a meteorite yesterday, inhabitants of the village of Ektiasal must have been running their mouths about how nothing like that would ever happen to them.  People in Indian REALLY need to learn about jinxing themselves because all they got for their trouble was an elephant coming to knock down their town.

They fired tranquiliser shots at the jumbo, the effects of which were yet to begin, the forest personnel said. Meanwhile, it went beserk and turned its wrath on the houses damaging walls and pillars

Seriously, India.  Slow down. I can’t be writing about you every day.  And please nobody say anything like: meh, what’s the worst that could happen.  Because, according to the video below, ELEPHANT ATTACK is not out of the question.  And I have to say that I think I am rooting for the elephant.  It’s like that old video game Rampage except there was no elephant in that game because it would not have been realistic.  Also the buildings in that village were not very tall.  And the road in the game is paved so… yeah no.


needs more elephant!

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on Smashwords.com) and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    I was gonna say, “why don’t they all leave?”, but then I realized that there are like a bajillion people in Indian and where would they go. Australia maybe? Isn’t the whole middle of that country basically empty?

    I am always rooting for the animal, in any scenario. Of course, the people whose homes were destroyed probably are not exactly doing all that well, so I’d prefer we take a few wild elephants and set them down in, say, Grosse Pointe, MI, or Tenafly, NJ or something. I’m surprised almost daily that all wildlife hasn’t ganged up on us and just overrun and crushed everything we’re doing.

Let us know what you think. Being on-topic is NOT required.
