And I thought I was suffering yesterday when I got one of my wisdom teeth extracted for the first time. I'm glad you're okay, italystf.

Having a medical check is also a good way to register the fact, so that you have a proof if any pain shows up later.

Sorry to hear that, I'm very rigorous about driving with precision. Driving cannot be a casual everyday activity, it must be done with complete awareness every single time.

Send me the pics too, I'm pretty much into studying road accidents and vehicles behaviour...
Anyway I wouldn't be worried about showing them in public: if you are on the right side, there's nothing one can do against you

That would be Ostrava , they tend to do smaller versions of each city or region. But it still comes out pretty nice....most simulators are not precise...if you wanted full scale that would take up an immense amount space and would take years to recreate...where as a reduced version takes a few months. This France Map Extension is pretty realistic , reduced scale wise. But the Landmarks , roads and city layout , all match with what you can see on google with a few changes.

You have a PM.
I don't like posting them in public because the cars and the place could be recognizable and I don't know why will read this.

I had both my wisdom teeth extracted last year. I've only had the upper wisdom teeth. It didn't really hurt, of course you need anesthesia.

You get local anesthesia, but you still feel it in a way, at least I did. But I didn't get the usual procedure by a surgeon, but my dentist pulled it out. He needed 1.5 hours and I still have half the tooth in my mouth. I came out completely sweated.

The upper wisdom teeth are usually easier to extract than the lower teeth, usually the dentist is able to get the upper wisdom teeth out, but you often need a surgeon for the lower wisdom teeth.

I found the post-extraction bleeding more annoying than the procedure itself. I bled all over my pillow at night.

I'd like to do a table of Motorway Lengths in all of Europe.

I have produced one with placeholder data below, I need real data instead.

What I need is a link to Motorway Lengths for each country on 31 december of every year like shown below. This forum has the very best data in all the world and a lot of the statistics are already in Skyscrapercity forums or on a forum members PC if someone would post the link for me that would be great.

The data required is for FULL Controlled Access Motorways with restrictions on slow vehicles along their length and a normal extra urban speed limit of 110kph + ( but an 80kph tunnel between 2 x 110kph+ sections is also allowed. Hard shoulder/stopping strip as normal save where a bridge or tunnel was too expensive to widen or build.

1+1 with motorway restriction not allowed, it will not be 110kph+

I don't want to do expressways as they are of variable quality and are not access controlled normally, eg a tractor can go on one. If the speed limit on an expressway is 110kph + and it leads directly onto a 110kph+ Motorway ( or off one) it can be counted as Motorway.

Draft Table. Needs filling with data. I'll wikify it soon, honest. Same Links as here.

Code:
European Motorway Table in KM, Completed Motorways.

Ireland looks like this. EG each year has a Motorway Network Total Size and Link to data.

I can insert those into the table above as they come in

Example.

---------------

Ireland. Motorway Totals.

2007 600km
2008 700km
2009 850km
2010 1000km
2011 1000km
2012 1000km
2013 1000km

--------------------

I don't know, but I would call that a bad dentist. 1,5h for a tooth is just too much. I had some extra teeth, they were removed by a surgeon, but it was much quicker.
I have still full package of wisdom though

Well, it just wouldn't go out. And yes, it's a lower tooth.
