I am sure the invention of air conditioning was not the reason for population growth in California. It was almost certainly the gold rush, business opportunity, and the fact the weather is pleasant in areas with the highest populations.

I'm a native Hungarian and speak both English and German fluently - although but of them with lots of grammar mistakes. I used to speak and write English a little bit wasier and better than German.
But for 1.5 years I have been living in Germany and use German every single day, in thee office where I work, in the shop, etc. And nowadays I see quite often that I use English with German grammar. Or sometimes I realize it's German grammar, but I simply can find the proper English grammar although I know it but even if I try to think hard, I find always the German way.

Almost same story here.

But nothing beats the "weiss ich richtig, dass...?" expression from my Hungarian fellows, which is an exact translation of the hungarian "jól tudom, hogy...?" sentence. I here it so often and it sounds a little funny, however, people seem to understand it

Google announced release of Street View in Serbia for 10th July. Unfortunately, only three largest cities will be available (Belgrade, Novi Sad and Niš) since rest of the country haven't been recorded.

I've already posted this pic to the respective topic, but must post it here as well. This is from some roadworks in Bratislava.



Note the "warning bidirectional traffic" sign (hint: concern on the arrows) Slovak road workers are incredibly stupid.

I 'd rather have a modified Nissan GT-R that makes 1400 (engine) horsepower on premium pump fuel (98-100 octane [RON]).
