Why is the guy putting sugar in his washing machine? And why is he brewing coffee with pepper? Questions, questions, questions...

Yugoslavia back in the 80's didn't had enough coffee and sugar so people had to smuggle those items from Italy into Yugoslavia.

For a short period of time during 1939 (when Hungary annexed Carpatho-Ukraine) Poland and Hungary were neighbours:

And soon a line in to Germany as well. And a second tram line to France is planned.

In Geneva and Basel you can pay with Euros in most places, and even buy public transit tickets and pay for parking from vending machines that accept both euros and swiss francs. And most ATMs dispense both francs and euros. Lots of cross border commuting. The Novartis office in Basel has a car park that is in France. Cern in Geneve stradles the border as well.

In Belgium, Tournai and Mouscron can be seen as a suburb of Lille, with
also rail cross-border traffic for people going there to work. I mention it
because those cross-border trains cannot be subsidized, so they remain in
existence only if they pay for themselves, which somehow demonstrates a
certain volume of traffic.
Actually cross border commuter trains can (and are) being subsidised. In the case of the trains from Lille to Tournai and Mouscron these trains are subsidised by the Region Nord-pas de Calais (which is why they have so many stops in France).

Another case of an emerging cross border agglomeration is Copenhagen - Malmø, where since the construction of the Øresund connection cross border commuting is on the rise. The prime example of a failed opportunity to do something similar is the Channel Tunnel. Thanks to British paranoia...

I think that he is not a border guard,he is a soldier,because his uniform doesn't look the same as the uniform which is on the guard 10 or 15 meters away.

The other day while looking at Google Maps, I realised why the several fuel stations on the N4 at Martelange in Belgium are cheaper.

The border with Luxembourg runs parallel to the road for a while, and crosses all the forecourts. Some of the pumps are in Belgium, but presumably the shops are all in Luxembourg.

I think with fuel, it's the location of the tank that matters, not the pump. There were at least two on the Irish border to the best of my knowledge, as well.

Well, Dover, Folkestone and Calais aren't exactly Copenhagen or Strasbourg....

Precisely.
Sure, Brits can get a bit paranoid about the border, but there is no chance of realistic commuting or creating some more unified organism on that border regardless of how cosy Franco-British relationship would get. The distance is simply too great, populations too low.

I hope there will be more cooperation between Ostrava region and places like Jastrzebie, Wodzislaw and Rybnik in Poland. Especially now when the A1 motorway is finally completed and connects to the Czech motorway network.
We have a chance to try to replicate what's happening on the French - Belgian border around Lille.
Populations are large and dense and distances short.
