No, but it is close. I ride on that street when I do my bike workout. And always think over how could someone place a speed bump in front of garage

This is my street

The asphalt bumpers are by far more common in the UK, they have white triangles on them and are everywhere. Sometimes they cover the whole road, and sometimes there are two or three with gaps in between.

If they would have put the speed bump only on the side entering the village, many drivers would have "overtaken" it. At least this is why in Romania they put slowing down road markers on both sides...

We almost never place speed bumps on village entrances, so it surprised me.

I meant this kind of markers http://goo.gl/maps/Wv2lR or http://goo.gl/maps/gxk7X
The video shows the typical stupidity of road maintenance in Romania...

here is cca 5 km long section covered with them, but not densely. happens the same as in your case.
https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Popov...,39.26,,0,8.16

normal speed can be 60-70 there, but those rubber bastards don't allow even suggested 40 km/h, especially when i drove Punto which was too narrow so should have pass over highest part of it.

Don't you have "piškotke?" We do not translate it however. Those are called "cookies" as in English.

But Czechs are experts in translations. I've worked in an Excel sheet and was computing "average" of certain cells. I've had Slovak version of Excel installed so I typed in the obligatory "=Average(...)" and got a result.

Later, I opened the sheet at work and continue computing other cells. It was Czech version. I typed in the obligatory "=Average(...)" and the command resulted in error "unknown command". Tried it several times but it ended up alike. So I opened the dropdown menu, checked the list of commands and almost did not believed my eyes. The correct command was "=PRŮMER(...)" it means "average" literally of course.

Btw. english grammar related question.
Can I use the past perfect in case the obvious fact is not said?
Like
"Peter had been proven to be the great player" - and it is obvious Peter is not an active player already from the context.

not really like that. You could say something like "Peter proved himself a great player" though

"Peter has shot six hattricks" after Peter's death, could i say "Peter had shot six hattricks (before he died)"?

I think that works

but maybe I would write it like "during his career, Peter scored six hattricks" (or similar)

Thank you very much for the suggestions. Off-topic off (assuming it is possible to have an off-topic topic in off-topic thread).
