I was in Bosnia and Montenegro in 1986. Many people here didn't exist yet.

Nor Bosnia and Montenegro (as countries) did.

This thing is so cool, i just found (pretty recent) video of Trieste-Opicina tramway

On the funicular section of the line, the tramcars are pushed uphill and braked downhill by cable tractors, also known as cable dummies or, in Italian, carro scudo. These vehicles are permanently attached to the haulage cable. They are not attached to the tramcars, but the lower end of the tramcar rests against the upper end of the cable tractor. (look at 2:15)

They were republics. What was I supposed to say? "I was in Yugoslavia in 1986"?

Verso,
As a Slovenian living in then Yugoslavia, did you feel any connection to Serbs, Croats etc. more than to people outside Yugoslavia?

I don't know really, I was 8 in 1991. I probably felt closest to Croats, although there were many pupils from all over Yugoslavia in my school. Almost all of them spoke Slovenian, so they didn't appear that different (except for having more fights ). I hardly had any connections with Italians, Austrians or Hungarians, so I didn't feel close to them. I don't remember Austria at all, and I remember Italy as a chaotic place where I could get lost in a second. Boat trip from Portorož to Venice in 1990 was epic though.

Is there by any chance a possibility this could be a Slavic habit? Because in Czech republic or Slovakia we usually refer an individual who always confuse things as Italian. I would not like to offend someone and still don't know where did it originate.

Dude, you can't do and accept such generalisations. Italians are just little bit more noisy, but you are enjoying life which is okay. The same goes for Spaniards or Greeks.

Good time for a subject change.

I'm wondering what people think of this:

I hate generalisations. I'm so shy and quiet you could think I'm a Scandinavian... until you see my hair, my eyes, my height

But sometimes they're useful

I've known tall, dark-haired Scandinavians.

PS to Road_UK: my first thread in the Belgian forum.
I used to be against capital punishment, although I'm slowly reconsidering. This is a masked capital punishment indeed. Someone like him will always continue killing - as shown when he was released the first time - because he is mentally ill, so the rieducational value of prison doesn't apply and I think a death sentence would have been justified.
But for some reasons, it seems this guy took the short route, something only a hypocrite would do. HE is suffering too much and wants to be euthanized? Euthanasia is a serious thing, and it should be used for serious illnesses, not for a bored prison guy.

You posted a picture of yourself once, in a mountain setting, in which you seemed tall.

But if I can think of any short, dark-haired Scandinavians in my (limited) circle of Scandinavian acquaintances, I'll let you know.

My opinion of the euthanizing-prisoners thing is in formation...
