Amazing. I've read there is an entire town in Sweden, Kiruna, that will be tear down and reconstructed away to expand an iron ore.

Looks like that there will be even more motorway construction and demolition in area.

That's amazing. I like that so many Russians have cameras in their cars, it's better than watching an American movie.

Finally I've found a commemorative €2 coin I had missing! It's the French one from 2011, the 30th anniversary of the "Fête de la Musique" (World Music Festival).

I still don't have it. Only 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 regarding France. I recently got the 2013 Italian one (200th birthday of Giuseppe Verdi) but I had to ask specificately at the "Banca d'Italia". The only Spanish I found is the 2009. Last year I even found 1€ from San Marino (2010).

Some mobsters being arrested on the football field, while playing for one of the teams. All other players, staff, and people on and near the pitch put on the ground with the gun pointed at them...

Maybe there is a version with more English commentary or with subtitles. This one has much French and Romanian subs. Btw, could you understand something?
More on this topic here, unfortunately it was not the only "mineriad".

I associate a diagonal arrow with a lane reduction.

This is how Denmark does it (almost all their interchanges are like the one you posted):

you can find it also in Slovenia. unfortunately, from my experience I saw that not many drivers use advantages of that system (too many of them stuck in the rightmost lane)

Nothing like it bonny lad, nothing like it. For a start they're not shooting or bombing each other.

Communism is anethema to any right thinking person. Well done the people of Romania for rising up and defeating it.

I've considerate those options, but the limitation is that i cannot change the style of "distance/exit" boxes. So the best solution for 3 or 5 lanes is to make the center arrows 45º.

Off course I wasn't criticizing the brave people who fought against the communist oppression. But the popular revolt that removed Ceausescu from the power reminds me the recent revolts in Tunisia, Egypt and Lybia against their dictators (off course also in those cases people are right).

The revolt in the video I posted is 6 months after the revolution, when the people noticed that their revolution was captured by the former communists who also seized the power. Unfortunately it was repressed by the miners and Romania went some 10-20 years backwards.

sounds familiar. Communist and former communists have this great ability to adapt to any situation and take advantage of it in order to maintain power.
