so Radi can be your tutor


seems that crisis isn't over yet... they let the gas flow but ukraine blocked pipes again...
among hungary and serbia, we could be facing shortage too...
i'm not sure what happens when all gas goes out of pipes... and does gas in touch with air makes some explosion... what will happen when pressure falls down... uhh...
we are still going to work shorthanded without 80% of workers cause we can't find available space to work... some of us will work night shifts too...

I wish I could still do that, I think I've driven most of the main roads in and around Sydney at one point or another. I used to go driving at night all the time until my car got wrecked in an accident. The reason I would drive at night is that Australian drivers are so terrible, I prefer driving among as few other cars as possible. Also, at night I figure there's probably less chance of getting caught driving 140 km/h on highways with a speed limit of 110, just because I don't see why they would bother policing a road with almost nobody driving on it.

Do all motorways in The Netherlands have that rumble striping on the edge? I hadn't noticed it before.

They often do. It's actually for drainage so that water won't stay on the driving lanes but can flow into the side.

They do that too, but I believe they're mainly designed for drainage.

I also saw some roads with rumble pavement on the edges of the road.

Another sucker who followed his TomTom GPS too closely


It was reported he drove 200 meters across the ice before sunk into the water.
