Does someone know if these statistics are accurate and updated?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...of_expressways
I see that Italy has 9727km of motorways and expressways. This figure seems likely to me but I don't know how the expressway lenght was calculated.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

What is a motorway and what is not is always debatable, due to differences between countries. Creating a list is one thing, keeping it up to date will prove much harder.

I don't see where the 75 kilometers of motorways on the Marshall Islands would be. Some figures appear to be fairly accurate though. The Italy figure was copied from the Dutch wegenwiki, which also includes superstrade. As usual, which superstrade is motorway-like, and which is not, is always debatable. I don't think you can come to a definite uncontested figure in all cases.

Length of motorways per capita and motorway density are messed up.

Many people still think that what they do on the net is perfectly anonymous, so they lost their inhibitions that they have in real life. Big mistake...

That's true, one should insult people on the internet AND in real life.

On a different note... How's your job coming along? Where are you residing these days?

Still in Brescia, I'll start my job next November 4th. Apparently guys at human resources messed up badly and prepared my contract for September 16th, but my boss and more than half of my team are abroad and won't coming back for the whole October, so it makes no sense for me to begin... I wouldn't know what to do

In the meantime I found an apartment, cozy and nice with a spectacular view on Gran Paradiso. A little far from work but I hope it won't turn out a daily traffic jam.

Best of luck. I hope it will work out for you. I'm expecting to be in Turin a lot again after a few months. Must have a coffee together some time...

Nah, that's one of those misfit, lunatic theorist.

I'm an experimentalist. And there's no way i can grow a beard like that.

Van doing a wrong maneuvre destroys a 15th century statue in Padua centre. The statue was placed in a pedestrian only area and the van had no authorization to enter.

UK, you ever do something like that, I'll chase you everywhere.

That person should turn around, face the building behind them, and get close enough to it that the people inside can read it.

Not that it'd do much good....

i was in Padova for the first time in my life this year and i was deeply dissappointed. i didn't know it was so ugly city. i expected explosion of culture (especially religious), and i found there nothing.
