It also irritates me when the company name is incorporated in club's name.

There was a volleyball team called Slávia Bratislava and they've renamed it to Slávia Kúpele Dudince Bratislava.

It sounds same ridiculous like e.g. Calgary Denver Spa Flames Or HC RI Okná Zlín.

Imagine a team called Dallas Aluminum Windows Stars.

In addition, Japanese non-expressway, non-urban roads nearly all run through mountainous terrain. Flat areas are often densely build-up.
The USA used to have 55mph (88kph) on all freeways until some years ago. Norway also had 100kph until they increase it to 110 recently. Iceland has very few roads that could be classificated as motorways, but since that country doesn't have a motorway designation, they have 90kph like other rural roads.

You need a police car behind you to get fined for a violation like that. It's not as easy to inforce as parking or speeding violations.

I know 19" rims looks perfect and fashionable, but I can't say a single bad word to my 15" rims. Well, okay, the car looks like cheap toy from kinder surprise, but it feels much comfortable on road. My dad have 19" rims and sometimes it feel like the car has no tires and we drive on naked discs.

I am aware it fully depends on general road conditions. If the road is smooth 19" rims is the better choice.

I tried to make a photo about that train. It could have been a great shot but then suddenly that cathedral jumped into the sight.

No, rims are always measured in inches :-)

It doesn't include Muggia, but it includes all others. I'm not sure they should be included though, they're high above Trieste. Although Kraljevica and Lovran aren't exactly Rijeka either.
