Reading comments on the youtube page there's some confusion as well. Some say you have to lower it every time you pass, even when the light is green, or you can get fined. This is absurd to me, it would imply that every car approaching the crossing has to stop, raise the gate, pass, stop, lower the gate, and then continue.

Some others say that if your don't lower the gate, a train coming would automatically brake. That's even more absurd, because what if there's nobody at the crossing and the last one passing left it open? The train would not be able to resume its course. And more, if the installed an automatic brake for the train, why wouldn't they have installed an automatic gear to lower and raise the gate? Much cheaper, much safer.

Anyone who knows more?

This is the miscellaneous / skybar topic of Highways & Autobahns. Everything that doesn't fit in one of the existing threads and is not important enough for a new thread can be posted here. Offtopic is not a problem, as long as it is reasonable.

It's shinier than ever. It still blinds your eyes after years of awesomeness of this exquisite work of mankind.

Is the Struma Motorway still about six feet long? Hasn't been mentioned in a while.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Struma_motorway
Currently 33km are open, 55 are U/C and 156 are in planning stage.

And the talk page

A small talk between two computer scientists:

a) Do you have a new notebook?

b) Yes, and totally for free.

a) Wow, how come?

b) It is simple. Tomorrow I was at my classmate and she asked me whether I could help to fix her notebook. It took me almost 4 hours, but finally, it worked out. As I finished, she took off her panties and offered me to take whatever I want. So I took the notebook.

a) Nice, good choice. You would have looked gay if you had taken the panties.

Perhaps because in Dutch tomorrow and this morning there is a same word morgen used for both? I know there are other words that can be used as well, but sometimes it can be troublesome .
