Imagine you're late for work, and you're a sensible, conscientious commuter so you take the train into the city. You hoof it to the train station, sweating in the morning heat; it's deserted, but you hear the train coming so you know you've just made it. You lick your palm, grease back your hair and smile real pretty just in time for the train to blow right past you. For the 10,920th business day in a row (assuming a five-day work week).
You, friend, must be a resident of Begunkodor, India. And if you've been trying to catch the morning train to Ranchi for the last 42 years to no avail, then last Tuesday was your lucky day. The BBC reports that on that day, for the first time since 1967, a train actually stopped at the Begunkodor train station.
