The Anti-Christ is not an atheist. He believes in himself, since he is Satan in disguise. That is our main difference. I don't believe that I am NOT a mere human.

Apart from WAR WAR WAR from 666 there's no war about religions here. Unless some spooky demons have stopped it being visible to yours truly...

Accidently, I found an interesting, possibly credible proof that so called Eastern Europe isn't actually Eastern. A certain British book (1970 edition) uses the term "Central" for describing such nation as Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary. I will post some scans soon. And, you, Road_UK, probably know that source, it's called: "New Junior Encyclopedia"

I do actually. Even though location wise you are probably right, the term Eastern Europe is obviously used in conversation to point out the nation's that were behind the Iron Curtain.
You could obviously argue that these countries were not behind that curtain. It was the West all along

Well, Vienna's location did suck back then. Not to mention West Berlin.

@Road_UK

I would not argue at all. I actually don't care what we are called. I am only surprised that they named that countries "Central" in the peak of tension between two European blocks.

It seems that many people find the term Eastern Europe derogatory.

Moroccan - Algerian border:


NOTICE: The border was closed in 1994, and is still closed today. (That's why the road looks so bad..)

No bull. After WW2, Hungary -among many other countries- was thrown to the Soviet Union, while other countries were lucky to remain neutral (like Austria from 1955 on) or have Western occupying powers (like 3/4 of today's Germany).

"Hungarian" (=puppet) governments during Soviet time basically served to fulfill the USSR's will and interests (and not Hungarian ones), under constant presence of aboout 600'000 Soviet troops in the country of about 10M inhabitants.
There has been a genuine Hungarian government for a short period in 1956. 2000 tanks were sent in by the USSR to crush the outreach for freedom (and to deter any other satellite country from following suit).

Many of the developments and under-achievements in the last 20 years are -unfortunately- more or less directly due to the preceding era of Commie brainwashing (like in other ex-Commie countries). Unfortunately, moving out Soviet troops from the country is not sufficient to move out Socialist and one-party regime ideals, mentality, habits and illusions from people's heads. And with these people in the government and elsewhere, performance is not (and cannot be) that of Western Europe with its decade-long tradition of freedom and market economy.

Without this historical period, present Hungarian secondary network would have the level of say France, Belgium or even close to Austria.

And now Hungary is occupide by EU, you have changed one "occupation" to another and that is the main reasons why secondary roads in Hungary are still bad.

You don't have the power to decide for people what gives them comfort, strength and hope. But thank you for calling my grandma sick and stupid.

Really. Some people would have happily prohibited Martin Luther King from speaking in public on the grounds that he was - gasp - a Christian minister.

But we've gone from off-topic to offensively off-topic. At least offensively to some people.

I just wondering why it is so hard to accept or understand that Hungary still has secondary roads in bad shape? Looks like Hungarians are giving a sh.. about the secondary roads!Sue us!
But if You or others got any problem with that, simply don't use those roads and your issue is solved. But in case you not using those roads,then your complaints are pointless... Unless if you simply wanted to mock on my country..
Btw: Hungary don't have the budget and economical strength as the Germans got/have, when they spent hundreds of billions euros!! in the past twenty years, only to equalize to the western part the infrastructural disadvantages of the former East-German cities,villages and its roads .. Ask the Germans how much money it cost to them, in case you don't believe me!
Also i know that since its founder of the EU, Germany got its part of the EU infrastructural fundings,rightfully.
Hungary also got huge amount of foreign debt, inherited from the communist/socialist regimes(1945-1989), topped later with the failed "catastrophically" privatized goods and properties on the expense of Hungary..
I hope it was clear and now enough of disrespectful off topic comments, because it will be always responded equally!
