Possibly, Singapore: 90 km/h. Of the larger countries, probably Japan: 100 km/h.

Japan also has a general 60 km/h speed limit on all roads inside and outside urban areas. But nearly all roads of significance have been replaced by at least single carriageway expressways where they usually allow 70 km/h. In addition, Japanese non-expressway, non-urban roads nearly all run through mountainous terrain. Flat areas are often densely build-up.

At least American "professional" athletes don't wear uniforms with sponsors' logos. No danger of thinking Vodafone is playing Emirates....

Imagine following situation:

You have an intersection with following lanes (from left to right)
- left turning lane
- two through lanes
- one through and right turning lane in one.

You are first in the line waiting on the traffic lights wanting to turn right in the last mentioned lane. As the red turns to green you realise you basically wanted to turn left on the intersection. What would you do:

a) go on, turn right and then find a place to turn around to get back to the intersection and carry on in correct direction,

b) turn the indicator left and try to get from the rightmost lane to the leftmost one, holding up the whole traffic behind you.

Yes. Today I've seen the moron who had chosen b. They exist.

Good for you. I am huge fan of ice hockey and really appreciate how is the ice rink of NHL clear.

The exact opposite of our national league. the ice is full of scribbles. sometimes it is even difficult to track the puck

Come to Turin. I see them every day at this intersection:
http://goo.gl/maps/afJCa

(this pic is old, now there are arrows painted on the asphalt). Basically left lane for turning left, two central lanes for going straight, right lane for turnin right. The rightmost lane is always full of people who want to go straight so they merge in front of you very fast, and you always have to brake.

Or Qatar against Azerbaijan:

(For those that are not familiar with European football/soccer: red-white is Atletico Madrid and red-blue is FC Barcelona).

I think those people know exactly what they are doing. They don't want to wait in line with the others, so they use the shorter line. Romania is also full of these "experts"

Of course they do. That's what annoys me most. That, and the fact that no one (police) cares.

Similar indeed, but it seems like yellow is becoming the police-color in more and more European countries...must be some EU "thing"

I'm trying to figure out whether Trieste is actually larger than Rijeka, or not really. They both have ~200,000 inhabitants with suburbs. Let an Italian-Croatian flamewar begin.

You'd be in tennis-spectator mode. Looking left, then right, then left, then right....

Well, city proper are Trieste~200k while Rijeka~120k. It's true that Trieste has few suburbs but I don't think Rijeka ones add up more than 80k.

When I visited them, I felt that Trieste was a bit larger. But Fiume is maybe more important, because it's the 3rd largest city in Croatia, unlike Trieste which isn't even in the Italian top 10.
They're both lovely cities, Rijeka was a big surprise to me! It has a huge potential and it seems that they've decided to begin exploiting it.
