If it's unchecked news but from another source (not Twitter) then it's ok.

Especially when false news refer to someone's death.

btw. it is not easy at all. You can perceive trams and trains as one. The same goes for lifts.

Trolleybus and bus are the same thing (to me, also tram). As cable lift and chair lift.

Well, trolleybus is something strange. On one hand it looks like bus, but on the other hand, it can't drive whatever you want. It also does not have to be licence plated, it has junctions, so it is more like tram (but it sounds ridiculous too). And I rather avoid mentioning trolleybuses with secondary diesel engine or full so called duobuses.

In Amsterdam you have this combination of tram (street car) and a subway underground train.
Metro route 51 starts as a metro train in Amsterdam through the tunnel, using the same tracks as regular underground routes, with power coming from below, but then joins the railway tracks of a regurlar street car, and power will be fueled from overhead cables. Platforms are hightened and lowered next to each other on that stretch.

I think you can vote for Romanian elections anywhere, provided that you can find a voting place
Romanian diaspora is huge, so foreign elections must be prepared very well, because they make a big difference on the final result.
