Well, it's not that bad on a motorway, but on a two laned road with quite heavy traffic it's a pain in the places where man's back starts to lose a decent name.

I gave my old PC to my younger brother, and in return, he bought me a present. A three-piece poster of Hong Kong. That ought to bring some difference in my New York-laden apartment.

I gotta get it somewhat more straight though. That money is 220 PLN in case you were wondering, I don't feel like carry it in my wallet all day if I don't go to Poland. The license plate is a Texas one. (the California license plate slid behind the drawer)

Here in Ljubljana it's still snowing heavily, for now about 30-35 cm of snow altoghether, about 20 cm just today. Again some real winter conditions.

Is 220 Polish Zloty (that's what it's called, I think) worth a lot or is it a bit like 0.2 euros?

yeah. 1 year ago they cleared 12 zeroes
so today the currency with largest numbers is vietnamese dong, for £5 you would get about 29700 VND. not too big deal actually.

Definetely the worst inflation was in Weimar Republic where people used to burn loads banknotes because you couldn't buy anything for it... Unless, you would take a cart whole of money for some modest grocery shopping

Weimar republic had by far not the biggest inflation. Hungarian inflation was bigger, in final they changed 4×1029 of old currency into new forint. In Yugoslavia they changed into 1 new dinar = 1,3×1027 of old dinars. Also Zimbabwean hyperinflation almost surpasesed Hungarian record (but it didn't), with 7×10^108 % yearly rate in some moment.

In other news: this morning in Ljubljana altogether 44 cm of snow. Some more is forecasted.

I've never heard anyone even try that in Estonia. We all have ice scrapers and snow brushes in our car.

I was amazed today , on my way to cemetery to bury my neighbor. That everyone at all the intersections stopped even on a red light and left us through It just shows that ppl are still warm hearted these days.
