That is not very sustainable, thus green...

They're football fans. They tend to have an IQ of a potato.

In Italy yes, but it is Austro-Hungarian meal, it is spread all around the former monarchy.

It's prepared the same way in Italy and Slovenia. In Slovenia it's seen as a typical dish from Primorska, I didn't know it's eaten all around the former empire.

It's more like a typical dish in mountain lodges.

Yes, it is very common in mountain lodges and huts, but it's one of the quintessential dishes from the Primorska region, much like bograč is associated with Prekmurje.

A lady crashed my parked car. Whole bumper with front end is destroyed. She ran away from the scene but had left the phone number with the text: "I am sorry for scratching your fender". The number was fortunately real and we finally managed the insurance affairs.

I had a woman crashing into me at low speed once. I was waiting for a traffic light and this woman was slowing down, but at the same time looking down (probably to a cell phone) and hit my car at like 10 km/h. Luckily it was an old Fiat Seicento which didn't weigh much and it didn't even leave any scratches.

However later on I found out the bump likely wrecked both ABS sensors / mechanisms on the rear axle. I had it replaced under warranty, apparently they were like € 500 each plus labor.

Driving without ABS sucks, I drove on a French road in pouring rain and nearly slid off the road when braking and going downhill at the same time. Luckily there wasn't any oncoming traffic at that moment. I got traction again after I stopped applying the brakes and managed to get back in my lane. So ABS can save your live.

i had even more bizzare situation. i was second in a row waiting on a red light. when red turned into green, the woman in front of me mistakely put into reverse instead of the first gear and bumped into me. also very low speed and nothing happened, but I was completely mad how could she do it. orange Opel Corsa this time.

Some years ago my friend and I stopped at a red light in Budapest downtown. It was his car and he drove, I sat in the right side seat. Some seconds later another car bumped into our car from behind.
Low speed, minor crashes.
The guy came and said "Sorry, my brakes are bad" and asked about the expenses of repairing the car. My friend said 150,000 forint (Hungarian currency, 1 € was approx. 230 forint back then), the guy asked nothing, gave us 150,000 forint in cash and asked whether we could drive on. My friend agreed.
Some days later he repaired his car, he paid 135,000 forint for it.

he is good at estimating costs!
Something similar happened to a distant relative in Canada. He was driving his late model expensive car (I would say, perhaps a Buick Regal or Olds Cutlass circa 1973-1974) and someone, presumably drunk crashed into him, damaging the car beyond repair. The other driver just went and bought him a brand new new car, a '75 Grand Prix (basically the same as what he had anyway) in exchange for not reporting the incident to police or insurance.

How do you even manage

In the fall someone rear-ended me while I came to a stop in a traffic jam on a motorway. The motorway is 2x2, but designed for expansion to 2x3, and we were on a viaduct. So to my left was perhaps 5 m wide space of clean pavement, and after that grass. But she slid and hit me anyway instead of just passing to my left in the empty "lane"

I moved onto the shoulder and got out and she was, still not moved since crashing, just crying at the wheel with the smoke of the airbag slowly passing through the windows
Her car (Honda) was destroyed and mine had a crack on bumper, but my estimate for repair was 1750 EUR :o
