Never fall again, as long as you don't mind looking ridiculous

Now something on the lighter side, here's a photo taken on a train in Japan. This clever woman seems to have figured out how to always have something to grab onto to hold her balance, even in a packed train. And as a bonus, her handle is always clean too!


Google translates this Japanese text to: "There was a wonderful person of high level ridiculously on the train."

Wonderful person indeed!

I'm not sure how well doing this would actually work, but it sure works at making me smile...
