If you would through the fat man directly on it it would be destroed, but if you would throw the fat man to Dupnica the Struma motorway would not get damaged.

It went quite well, but it didn't really count anymore. Still our project will be sent to a national competition for "profielwerkstukken" (profile workpieces), so that was nice.

Why Utah? You'll probably be put in a Mormon family that live in a house without any electricity and luxury. I'd be pissed off

However, it is beautiful. I've been on SLC airport three times so far (2003 and twice in 2008) and the salt plains are beautiful.

This is a pic I took from the plane last August (coming from Spokane). Unfortunately Delta Airlines prefers to have dirty plane windows, so it's not a very good pic:

Haha, this is hilarious. We've had a humpback whale in our small disputed Piran Bay between Slovenia and Croatia for two weeks already (it can't find its way back to open sea and Atlantic Ocean), so that the Slovenian Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning released directions on how to behave in the bay. Thank god it's not summer and people swimming.

I've read that activity has decreased in more sections of skyscrapercity.

Can you think of an explanation for that?

Gee, can it get any worse than saying I posted an hour after I really did? I can't even notice, if anyone posted anything in this one hour to come, as it appears real time by others.

I used to live in New Mexico. Very interesting place- especially for someone like me from the northeastern USA.

Good news: today has absolutely brilliant weather. I'm just waiting for my dad to get back to me on whether or not he needs to use the car today, and if not then I'll definitely be going out to make another driving video, this time in daylight.

Ugh, Australian drivers really piss me off. I went to make a video of the M4 today (which, by the way, went very well; I'll be uploading it sometime very soon), and while driving 120 km/h on the M7, I came up behind someone else going 110. Instead of moving over to the left lane (which was empty at that point), they continued to drive in the overtaking lane. A few kilometres later we reached their exit, and despite the fact that there was no safe gap in traffic in the left lane, they just swerved across the motorway to reach the exit.

AFAIK that's the no.1 irritation of drivers in the Netherlands. You can get fined for left-lane hogging

Isn't this just fantastic? After finally getting hold of a video editing application (Cinelerra) that adds audio to videos properly and uploading the finished first portion of the M4 video I made today to YouTube, I get this message:

How do they figure out what music is there? Do they just look at the video description? I'm trying to upload it again without putting the song in the description.
