When I was in Greece, I saw a map on wall with Macedonia covered by some papers. I uncovered the papers and found this



Btw. there is a lot of new traffic signs in Greece with direction to Macedonian cities. The white oval beside is blank

Here

and here

I know about the name dispute. I just wonder how does it reflect to common life.

This is the kind of ideas who looks great when you look at it from a positive point of view.... but who actualy is a "usine à gaz" (a french expression to say that it is oversized compared to his task - it should be translated by "labyrinthine system" ), certainly too complicated and expensive for now to have a centralised ID service and certainly too complicated in the point of view of each country who will have their own requirements on it, etc...

Have you ever heard about the German "Entziehung der Fahrerlaubnis" or Austria "Abnahme des Führerscheines und Entzug der Lenkberechtigung"?

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entzie..._Fahrerlaubnis

If you got penalized for misbehavior in road traffic**, e.g. speeding, you can "loose your driver license" temporarily, e.g. for 1 month or 3 months. You must give your document to a police station for that time. If there's just one document, you couldn't leave your country...

**It's even discussed in Germany to revoke one's driver license temporarily for criminal incidents beyond road traffic!

It's not that difficult: they issue a card with a chip, where all you personal data are stored, and so is your driving license status. When your license is revoked, an officer only needs to check your ID with the database...

A few months ago my friend sent me a postcard from northern Italy and I never got it.

I once sent an envelope with few coins (taped within two pieces of cardboard so one wouldn't tell there were coins) and it never arrived to destination.

Is there even need for a chip?
I'm sure police in Germany are checking your information on computer anyway...

The same could go for Lithuanian and Latvian ones

It's the same in France because most of the fines are automatic now in France (with speed radars, red lights radars and so....) and for each infractions you loose a certain amount of points on the 12 points you have on your driver licence...., but if you didn't received the notification/fine by mail, you might be using your car without a valid driver licence and only the cops can tell by checking their computers...

(For example if you are flashed by going into a traffic light, its -4 points even if the traffic light is only at "orange", you will got the fine and loose the points (that's why some people are braking brutaly on orange traffic lights in France, so dangerous... ), and for using a phone in your car (even stopped at a traffic light for example) it's -3 points, etc....)

The result of this stupid repression is that there is an estimated number of people who actualy drive without a valid driving licence in France between 500.000 and 2,5 millions according different estimations (but this number cannot be checked...). Another reason for this high number is that in France in some places you have to wait months and months to pass the test to have your driver licence, and it can cost up to 1400€ (because of the mandatory hours of driving you have to take with a school car instructor), such crazy situation...

Sorry if I went a bit off topic

All I've seen of Singapore is the airport, which had the cleanest toilet I've ever seen.

It's unseasonably hot in the Netherlands. The 30°C mark has never been crossed before so late in the season. The latest date in recorded history when the temperature exceeded 30°C was on 6 September.

Not very cold in the North either. +15 currently at the Arctic Circle.

Following the mock-ups of the World Cup and the March Madness, as well as several matches of the Spanish La Liga (involving ADPI Rivas, UD Ariza and Rosales CF replacing Barça, Atlético and Real Madrid respectively, the first two are actual teams playing at regional level, the other is fictional), I decided to make one of the UEFA Champions League, with teams from all over Europe like Arminia Ausfahrt, Ecce Homo, SC Fail, Scunthorpe United (another existing team) or Asperger (yes, there's a town named Asperg North of Stuttgart and obviously all its inhabitants are asperger but don't necessarily have Asperger's). And this couldn't have started worse, as the match between the last two has been suspended due to rain (to top that, today is Tuesday the 13th, considered an unlucky day in Spain). PEC Zwolle (yet another real team) is also in, and in fact today has been visited, and beaten, by UD Ariza.

There's also a village north of Stuttgart which is called Großaspach. There's a football club, 3rd division: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SG_Son...ro%C3%9Faspach.

I prefer Asbach though
