So, just screw everyone of you

Me? Well, if you feel it's necessary I don't think I can say anything to prevent that, or could I?

edit: I might be a little bit over-happy and enthousiastic now that I finally have some sort of actual internet connection as opposed to the .2MB/s connection :P

Giiiive me!!

At home it's 60MB/s download and 5 MB/s upload. But on vacation it's this:


And every afternoon it's just complete #%#^&

It took about 1hr to do the bottom one because the connection just kept randomly failing...

You should start using carrier pigeons, it's faster.

This has in fact been tested, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_over_Avian_Carriers.

I found cinxxx's article interesting to read. It's clear that if you have stamps on your passport from not very friendly countries you might get a an extra check.

As for myself: clearing US customs at New York JFK airport was piece of cake back in 2009.

It was a lot harder though to enter UK from France with the Eurostar back in 2007. I was asked a million questions there.

... and this is at 10 p.m. when the network is busy. More, now my internet carrier has an option for 1 Gbps internet connection (at a resonable price like 20 € or something like that). But I haven't upgraded yet.

edit: I just checked the internet speed on my phone, from the mobile internet (not wi-fi). I have faster mobile internet than keokiracer has at his PC

2.50 MB download and 1.81 MB upload.

I've heard that American custom\immigration officers use to ask aparently idiot questions to travellers entering the USA, like: "Have you drugs?", "Have you weapons?" and so. The answer is obvious but those officers can read the face expression that varies between innocent (who say a sincere no) and guilty (who say a false no) persons. If one appears suspiocious, they search deeper his luggage.
However there's nothing bad with though border checks, it's their duty to prevent criminals entering their country. Border-crossing bribes asked in some poor countries, instead, are bad.

Some years ago me and three mates travelled to Denmak by a car having a Hungarian registration number (we visited an international handball game). Approx. 100 meters beyond the D-DK border a police officer ordered us to stop. He checked our IDs and had some questions, he asked whether we had drugs. One of my friends found this question funny and started to laugh. It was not a good idea, the officer got angry, we all had to get off, he shouted and examined our bags. He did not find anything and after all let us go.

I'm connected via WiFi, so it may have something with my router located on the opposite corner of my apartment.
