Having any car in North Korea is a privilege.

North Korea is really I place whose social and economic order I want to see self-imploding in the most possible sudden way. Not as in some foreign military operation, but just a crumble of that vile dictatorial regime. Something that makes what happened in Albania in 1989 an orderly dismantle of communist tyranny.

But car pooling seems to be well developed in PRK...

With the Easternmost of their three being the one placed most into the future (UTC+14). So if at 10:00 UTC at any given day Kiritimati island (which is in that time zone) still exists, then is sure the world will last for at least another day .

And I've came here only to celebrate my 5,000th post (excluding skybars)!

I give classes in celestial navigation as my hobby. (Sextants, Nautical Almanac, spherical trigonometry, etc). One exercise on how to cope with the date line is to calculate the timezone difference of Hawaii (UTC-10) and Eastern Kiribati (UTC+14). The students are usually rather surprised about the answer: The difference is 24 hours, thus meaning they share the same wall clock time, but Kiribati is one day ahead.

Is there any other language where the next sentence is like in Slovenian? We can say "snow is melting" (sneg se topi/tali), but we can also say sneg kopni (kopno means "land" (opposite of sea/water, not country)), which literally means "snow is becoming land ('landing')". How is it in Serbian and Croatian?

In russian it's Таeт снег - Tajet sneg. Topi in slovenian is probably "warm up" which looks similar to the russian word теплить - teplit meaning "burn" .

We can say "sneg se taja" as well (infinitive is "tajati se"), but you rarely hear that.

same here, with almost the same words.
(the only difference is in the 1b example (tali) - that word is here used for melting the steel for instance, not for the snow)
