How about that.
Wife cheater, thinking you're a private eye.
Or just driving his boss car without permission.

we have a way of saying here "do no harm, fear no harm" I'm not at all bothered by all the cctv security cams snooping into my privacy. I'd want more.

I experienced such sort of thing when I was doing license plate research some 2 years ago. Some Polish guy demanded I wouldn't note his plate (even though we never had to note the full combination), or else he would "do something". It was 10pm, it was dark and I was alone, so I didn't feel very comfortable...
But that's how people get here nowadays. It's getting rougher and rougher and you're asking yourself where it ends...

Actually, i had such a survey last week in Lelystad. I got a phone call of some women demanding the survey would stop.

They only noted the first 4 characters of the license plate, in order to make a dynamic traffic model. That way you can see how the traffic flows through the city. It has nothing to do with some person driving a route. People really get paranoid these days.

Gas hits a new high in the Netherlands of € 1,661 per liter. That's $ 9.88 per gallon.

Make that € 1,683, a 2,2 cent increase. That's currently $ 9.92 per gallon.

I just tanked for €1,63 and I've already seen €1,71 at motorway gas stations. What will we pay in 2020 if gas prices continue raising this fast?

Luckily it hasn't risen as much in euros as it has in dollars.
Anyways, no point complaining about it, people should have known they would get raped with new taxes on everything when they voted this government in. Who else would think of raising taxes another 3 cents when prices are setting new records every day?


Just bend over and take it like a big boy

^ He isn't very informative, I must say. Reminds me of Radi. The worst thing is he almost put my country on the second page.

Bulgaria would still have its first thread. And what's with that "ï", Timon?

Bulgaria's thread would at least have not had as many Struma pics as it is spoiled with now
In NL we sometimes use the two dots on a vowel to connect two words, instead of a hyphon. Like "Exloo" and "mond" in "Tweede Exlooërmond" (a small village in the north of NL). Dutch is interesting, isn't it?
What about Slovenian? You have all kinds of other characters, which aren't used in dutch, like č, š and ž

^ Yeah, two of them are in my name. Intersection = križišče. We only have these three distinct. But I didn't know you had ï.

I had a nice drive today, about 150km on various roads. The motorway was busy as hell around 12.30 already.
