The ****ers at the internet provider delayed our internet connection for another week, which means I won't have internet for another week at home. Luckily the university has a good internet connection (download up to 40 MB/s, yes Megabyte)

[QUOTE=MAG;45563757]The Polish 'ł' is rather on its own amongst slavonic langauges, ignoring colloquial usage elsewhere,[QUOTE]

If I can say? There is a small slavonic ( actually regarding themselves as 2 separate nations: low and high ) nation of Lausatia, living in Germany, nearby Polish an Czech border. They use 'ł' and call themselves Łužiscy or Łužyske depending of dialect. Their language could be simplified as a mix of Polish and Czech as well as being understandable, in its basic form, by both Poles and Czechs.

Ah! I reminded myself about another " nation " who uses that character. They regarding themselves as a offspring of Dutch People. In their language " Luik " would be probably called " Lłik ". If you would like to know bit more read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wymysorys.
It might be particularly, quite interested for people of Netherlands.

Taper:

A second lane that merges immediately as opposed to the regular merging lane of 300 meters (or even more).

Many people are scared of it, especially about the on-ramp ones. They are afraid they can't merge and get squashed between mainline and on-ramp traffic. You just need to look careful if there is on the mainline lanes, and if there isn't, go right.

Another thing that annoys me are people who accelerate to 60 - 70 km/h and then merge with traffic that's doing 120 km/h. Just put the pedal to the metal.

Dutch drivers are not the smartest often.

For instance, the accelerating/merging lane is usually over 300 meters long! This means you have a luxury 12 seconds to accelerate from 80 to 120 km/h. Yet everybody wants to merge within 50 m.

Really, you can merge at 120 km/h easy on nearly every on-ramp in the Netherlands. I have never seen such long acceleration ramps and merging lanes as in the Netherlands. Even trucks can merge at 90 km/h if they use the full length of the merging lane.

Example, entrance A1 Amersfoort-Noord direction Amsterdam:

650 meters to accelerate on the on-ramp. Then another 300 meters to accelerate to merge at 120 km/h. That's almost ONE kilometer to get to freeway speed...

This is the behaviour I noticed when came to the UK. Commonly, drivers there/ here do not speed up on runways. They just keeping up a low range speed with a flickering indicator, looking around and merge with the traffic in a least advantageous moment.

More annoying though, is trying to merge the traffic from hard shoulder after brake down. Some drivers attempt to do that from still.

here also people have illness of merging into driving lane just at the beginning of merging lane. i allways use merging lane till the end (except in large crowd when traffic is slow and i merge as soon as i find place). i hate when some dickhead merges behind me, enters driving lane behind my back and doesn't leave me space to merge.
also, i often see women who just don't accelerate at ramp nor at merging lane, they just drive 60 km/h till the end of merging lane and then lookif they could merge. if they see oncoming car, they just - stop
