Today was unbearable at 29 °C and a constant 28 °C in my apartment, no matter how many windows I opened.

Personally, I agree with him in some points (especially in criticism towards mechanism how EU parliament works), but I think, Europe should be renewed, not fallen apart.

Unbearable? This is just right.
Only 14°C here today, tomorrow it will be already 25. Let the summer finally begin.

On the other hand, good news is that they will continue shooting rest of the Serbia in next three-four months. Here are Opel Astras newly registered to Belgrade plates, which will be used in Serbia:

How many Google Cars do exist? Are they registered in every country who has coverage? I read that Google Cars with Dutch plates have been spotted in Milan years ago, so probably there's not relationship between license plates and covered area.
So, why they purchased new cars for Serbia while they could use cars that were previously used in other countries, where they aren't needed anymore since they're already mapped?

I notice that Google is using Opel Astra J.
But in some other countries Google was using Opel Astra H.
Obviously Google loves Opel

Speaking of Streetview cars, a Google Streetview car was spotted today (well, technically yesterday) in the city centre of Utrecht (NL)

You and me have exactly the same opinion. We should form a party

Mind you, Nigel is hilarious when it comes to some of his speeches in parliament. Especially the way he crosses swords with Guy Verhofstad, the former prime-minister of Belgium. (he doesn't like Belgium and keeps on revering it as a non-country)



Farage tells former Belgian prime minister to shut up and listen for a change, and also comments to a Romanian MEP about the Romanian treatment of a minority group I won't mention )

29 degrees "unbearable"? Air conditioning? I guess everything is relative

The thing is that he has many good points. Like when he starts with that the anti-Assad forces are not clearly the "good guys" in the Syrian civil war - and with the rise of ISIS/ISIL he was damn right about that. Now of course he often uses these valid points of arguments to support his wacky ideas and his style can be offensive to some - but you can't ignore how entertaining he is. Heck, he even made my little brother watch political speeches - a thing which didn't happen since 2006. Anyway I still wouldn't vote for him but I think we should consider some of his points.

I was once talking with a lady from Cyprus who was horrified when she learned that temperatures can drop below 20 degrees in September here...
