Believe me, this is one of the less stupid movies about shark attacks.
Check for example Sharknado, Shark avalanche or Twoheaded shark attack.

No, I just watched trailers. I wouldn't dare to watch complete such stupid as that would be an unforgiving loss of time.

omg, that Sharknado - i saw a trailer somewhere. i thought that was some animal horror movie from 70es
(btw, if the movie itself is not lame enough, Ian Ziering makes it the lamest possible )

I saw a scene from Sharknado on Youtube, somthing like 5 minutes of it. It's one of those movies that's so bad it becomes hilarious

They usually play such crappy movies on Universal Channel.

Next week I'll have to drive from London Gatwick airport to nearby Cambridge. Which route should I take? M25 (London Orbital), or to drive through the city?

The journey will be at around 18-19 in the afternoon/evening, so congestion charge doesn't apply anymore at that time. The only thing I'm concerned is the very bad traffic in London at that hour.

M25-M11 will be quicker than going through central London. Generally the worst of the traffic will be in the opposite direction between the M3 & M1 junctions.

Current traffic (Sunday midday) indicates an average speed of 25 km/h through London from M23 to M11. (1 hour 45 minutes to drive 44 kilometers). I suppose it's not better on a workday just at the end of rush hour.

Gotta love some journalists. TV show about tax evasion: "British protectorates like Cayman Islands and Channel Islands". Protectorates? You probably mean overseas territories and crown dependencies. British protectorates haven't been in existence for decades.
And while they were talking about Germany they showed the shape of Germany coloured with German flag colours. Little problem: it had pre-1990 borders.
I know that most people don't care about these things, but I think journalists should prepare themselves more carefully.

In real life, electronic toll collection was first introduced in Bergen, Norway in 1986, and well into the 21th century many countries still struggle to implement it.

But term "crown dependencies" and their status is so complicated and archaic...and nobody gives a shit.

After a tiring drive from Frankfurt Hahn, on heavy winds and rain, I arrived in Ingolstadt.
Plane landing was also very bumpy, saw lots of worried faces during descent, many were very relived when we got down safely

I don't know, the story about the sick Germaniawings pilot is getting more and more strange to me. First the wrong photography, then the improbable record from black box (lightly breathing), the small debris, girlfriend Maria, now Sabrine, few days ago she was fly attendant, now teacher and finally the stories about him watching gay porn and all the weird freaky stuff.

Sounds like attempts to change the focus of an attention. There is nothing easier than blame the dead man.

That's quite a distant airport for you. Over 400 km away.

I haven't found anything better. Nürnberg and Memmingen began their flights to Malaga only when I wanted to get back, Vueling didn't have anything for the dates I wanted.

I was constrained to the last week of March, so this was the only way.
In the end, the long drive was worth it, Andalucia was wonderful, maybe the best place I have ever visited until now. Highly recommended
