Above: Right again, Mr Pumpy!

The hypothesis: South Indian traffic isn't all that bad.
The experiment:
Sit on the road for 3 hours.
Possible outcomes:
1. Get run over. (Hypothesis fails.)
2. Not get run over. (Hypothesis succeeds.)

In the photo we see Mr Pumpy deep into the scientific process. Note how the traffic weaves around him, and indeed! Nobody pays any attention at all!

Mr Pumpy couldn't ride for a couple of days after this due to a bit of residual leg cramping, but all in all, a successful day's scientific investigation!
