The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
It's not only his coding standards that are the worst - his posting standards come quite close.
And I'm surprised. With a DateLine so close, how can he find time to post in the Lounge?

Given it is distance dependent, I'm going to assume that it was offered based solely on geographical distance. One tiny area of the country probably has it even offered. 199k is a lot of houses, but it's really just the size of a single large town/small city.

Once an Engineer walks into a bank in Mumbai & asks for a Rs. 50,000 loan.
The bank asks for Security & the guy hands over the keys & documents of his 7-Series BMW which is parked on the street in front of the bank.
After all necessary checks the bank agrees to grant him the loan.
... The bank's President & all officers enjoy a good "laugh".. For the Engineer , who used a 1 crore BMW as collateral against a Small Loan of Rs. 50000.
The car was parked in the banks garage safely.
2 months later the guy returns & repays Rs. 50,000 & the interest which comes to Rs. 1250.
The loan officer says, Sir v r very happy to do this transaction, but we r a little puzzled, while u were away, we checked u out & found that u r a "MULTIMILLIONARIE", then why did u bother to borrow 50,000??
The Engineer replies, where else in Mumbai can I park my car for 2 months for only 1250 and expect it to be there when I return??
The Engineer smiles & says.. Pleasure doing Business with you all....
