Happy Canada Day


My favorite part was the hockey stick

Seen on the QEW direction Hamilton, around Dorval Dr (km 116)

Although they've become quite hot due to global warming. I laugh at those ex-Yugoslavs who still think that Slovenian summers aren't hot.

Two Italian jet fighters broke the sound barrier over SE Slovenia today. The only time I heard it was in 1991 during the war when a Yugoslav fighter broke it over Ljubljana. It was deafening.

It occurs from time to time in the Netherlands, they have F-16s on standby 24/7 to respond to any calls, often to intercept aircraft which do not respond to air traffic control.

It usually makes the news as breaking the sound barrier in a densely populated country is noticed by large numbers of people.

The sonic boom wasn't heard in Ljubljana (at least I didn't hear it). It says here: ... Po končani nalogi spremljanja sumljivega letala sta se lovca s podzvočno hitrostjo vrnila v matično bazo v Italiji ...
Also in English (but without mentioning where the fighters were from).

Facebook photos

Hi guys, a heads up about Facebook photo linking.

Facebook uses temporary photo URLs which expire within days, weeks or months.

So if you embed a photo with an URL from Facebook, it becomes invisible after a while, in particular those long URLs with a question mark in it. I've noticed many posts lacking photos and the culprit is almost always a Facebook URL.

I don't have Facebook, so it doesn't affect me. Sometimes I have linked photos from Twitter, and AFAIK those have a permanent URL. For example a couple photos where I compared Alfamen (the ugliest town in Aragon) to the back of a fridge are still showing up, and I tweeted those back in March.

Open question, how does the latest fuel price look in your countries guys?
Have it been going up or is it stable?

more or less stable here in southwestern Ontario, Canada
about 0,96 CAD/L (0,67 EUR/L)

It was increasing though for past couple months as temperatures got warmer. In wintertime was common to see 79 cents and was usually low 80's.

I remember back in 2012 winter paying $1.35 :o

Toronto is actually a bit better than normal at about $1/L.

German police arrested a Turkish truck driver near Osnabrück today. The trucker was driving from Izmir to the Netherlands without a break. According to the tachograph, the trucker was driving for 42 hours without a break. He came under suspicion after swerving across the road. It was not the first time he was arrested for exceeding driving hours. He got a fine of € 5,000 and the trucking company got a fine of € 19,000.

The latest Pokémon Go craze prompted a lot of DOTs to warn about not to play it while driving. This is in Arizona.

Summer weather in the Netherlands is total crap so far - loads of rain and low temperatures (today it's 16 C). But I'm glad I'm not in Córdoba, Spain:

Temperature ranges of almost 20°C within the same day are quite unusual in Europe. They occur more often in desert areas.
