Passed it on my Sunday-afternoon shopping. Not open yet but the signage presents it as a rebirth of a famous place in L'Aquila... Do our Italians know anything about the original?
Never been to l'Aquila and never heard of this particular cafè. My guide to the best cafes in Italy doesn't mention it (in l'Aquila there are only Cafè Cavour and Cafè Muftì).

Lol, I am the real bad luck Bryan.
While writing my PhD. thesis, I was listening mp3s in WinAmp over my headphone. It shuffled to song Southside spinners - luvstruck (klubbheads remix). I really don't know their discography and this is not my favourite song, but since I was busy creating some maps, I had not time to skip it. Unfortunately there is a section in the song, where tune fades out and a women says "I want ya, I need ya... give it to me" in a distinct manner. The tune comes back then.

At the time, I was changing my position on my office chair, span a bit and since I'd been accidentally sitting on a headphone cable, the connector fell out. So the "I want ya, I need ya... give it to me" echoed all around my room. Having realized what I've just done, I made another mistake - plugged the connector back. My girlfriend (who thus did not hear the tune fading in) angrily came over asking me if I really watch porn instead of working Fortunately she let me explain it.

i had even more embarassing situation. my sister and I were smsing yesterday about going to a concert where our friend was singing. and made a mistake, so her sms looked like "our friend will sing. later coffee with sex? i will pick you up at 17h40." (sex was mistake (at least i hope so ), it should have been sister, only 1 letter makes change in croatian). my answer: "ok for coffee, but no sex".
of course she didn't realize the mistake in her sms, so she thought that i was making plan to get laid with someone and mistakely sent her that sms

Nice one

It just remind me high school times. Before summer as the semester ends, we used to have a small concert where students performed numbers, skills etc. It was preceded by director's foreword. It was women in her late 50s.

In Slovak, pani = Mrs. and panna = virgin. Both of the pair of presenter students were shy and introduced the director by shouting to audience as "Heartily welcome virgin director".

let's get back from my incest issues to your porn issues

you have reminded me on that song (I went to highschool graduation trip when it was popular in 1998 ) - interesting and on-topic scenes in the video. can somebody decipher where would those motorway scenes be?

We can at least define, where it is not from - not from Asia or North America (there are Klemfixes in one scene, which I never seen them on any pictures of US or Canada motorways. It looks like as motorways from Benelux or Germany.
Also group is from Netherlands so ...

It's called a 'verdrijvingsvlak'. You're not allowed to drive on it. It still exists widely throughout the Netherlands.

you mean like this?
https://maps.google.hr/maps?q=Rotter...izozemska&z=19

i know for those, but this one at the video looks more like splitting the lanes, and on such places in NL you have only the solid lanes with kind of (isosceles) triangle inside, no hatches

It is funny how the centre of Europop moved from Benelux to Romania in recent years.

P.S. those hatches (or road shading) is used only in case of lane merging in Croatia? Because we use it in both cases.

no hatches here in HR. you will find only solid fillings between lines on both merging and splitting lanes.
hatches appear rarely on the motorways, and mostly in cases like in NL - no driving here (not neccessarly splitting/merging situations). they are tough present at all state roads' intersections.

Are you talking about music? I didn't know Europop had a center.

I've heard some good Flemish hip-hop on the VRT, actually.....

My bad, I've thought Eurodance music, especially in '90s, not Europop...
