6 to 12 inches - 15 to 30 cm - (depending who you listen to) forecast here Wednesday night/Thursday. It's "Winter Storm Pax," of all things.

Simple?
Eurocrats can't even decide how much curvature should a banana have.

I think it was about cucumbers Believe it or not, we have a politician who has tried to defend it.

You have to give the EU (even if you're well outside of it) points for entertainment value....

However is still better having the EU making crazy regulations rather than 28 countries each with his own crazy ragulation. Imagine all the problems with some stuff legal in a country but not in another due to a tiny legal difference.
Apart some ridiculous example, many times EU regulations are useful, for example those about food hygiene and labelling and banning the sale of antiquate and non eco friendly products like inefficient electric appliances, non-catalized cars, incandescent light bulbs, non-biodegradable plastic bags,...

You can reportedly fit more cucumbers to transport box when they have regular straight shape than bent one. Very weak justification though

This Italian farmer tried to grow watermelons inside boxes to occupy less space in transport.

No EU law about them, yet

Also because you must consider that disposing all the curvy cucumbers and bananas is a waste and an insult to people starving in the world.

The Japanese are doing this for decades (BBC article from 2001, where they claim it was an idea from 20 years before):

I totally agree. The same went for horse meat scandal. It should have finally ended up in starving world.

Quick question:
Which route is faster/easier/nicer of these two?

1. I'm planning to do this on May 2, then stay over night in Zadar, then on May 3, in Zagreb. Return to Ingolstadt will be via Maribor and Graz

2. What about this one?
I'm planning this around 22-23 May towards Trogir/Split.

http://goo.gl/maps/BQnh4

I was thinking to do both routes somehow...

I'd choose to go via Metlika, less fuel and toll.

I was thinking going on May 2 via Zagreb, to also clinch the Slovenian A2, and next time via Metlika. I don't really care about fuel and toll costs, only not to encounter big congestion and lose time stupidly

Novo mesto - Karlovac will take you about 1h15. if you're not in fond of sparing the fuel and tolls, or driving at rural roads with lovely landscape, then chose the motorway route. 45 km more and 3€ tolls (so cca 8€ more per direction).
motorway route will take you not more than 1h.

6 - 10 inches / 15 - 25 cm of snow is paralyzing North Carolina traffic, the worst is around Raleigh.
