It's a bit like Gibraltar where the airport runway crosses the main road, but at least there are gates there, and warning lights.

Solid attempt at the "Number of times you can say Boom Gate in one video" record there.

Impressive detective work. So the video is a fake but the tracks etc are real.

I love the incredulous question ‘how is this possible?’ and ignoring the obvious one word answer.

Azerbaijan.

Apparently, it is one of the most corrupt industrial countries on earth. Mafia money from Russian etc etc and from the Middle East, especially Iran, all flow through here.

My guess is that the local development went ahead without any thought to zoning or traffic or obtaining permission or informing local authorities. So you get a train track crossing a multi-lane road with minimal signage. Hey, port existed before the motorway and the traffic that comes with it and sans urban design oversight and regulation, you get this dangerous nonsense.

#3 My thought exactly. Just another shithole country. Nothing surprising here.

#4. Nomaddaf. Respectfully, I referred to Azerbaijan as rife with corruption. That is all.

It is unfortunate that you have chosen to use the derogatory term shithole country’ in your reply.

Admin/ Geekster has asked that people adhere to the rules and do not start discussions about politics or religion.

Your unfortunate characterization has just crossed that boundary. It has a very specific and very political connotation in 2018 and therefore I would prefer if you would refrain from making such characterizations. To do so only invites a reply. Just because a country ranks high on a corruption index doesn’t make it or its people necessarily bad or it a ‘shithole’ as you called it.

In the name of Snotr collegiality, I would be grateful if you could please stop making such pejorative and clearly loaded generalizations.

#5 Austin you and I have had a conversation about Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins only a couple of days ago on this site. How can you highlight keeping religion out of Snotr today?

#6 JJ. We had a conversation about authors and intellectuals whose works and positions we appreciated. We did not talk about religion, per se, in any evaluative or critical way. No comparative or absolute positions were expressed as far as I recall. Just a mutual appreciation and respect for the Hitch Slap ;-)
