Estonia will give 10 million AAUs(CO2) to Mitsubishi Corp. In return, Mitsubishi will provide the state with 507 Mitsubishi Miev electric cars which will mostly be used by social workers. The cars are expected to arrive by the end of the year. In addition, a network of 250 fast-charging stations will be built in Estonia. That project is expected to be finsihed by the end of 2012. Furthermore, there will be subsidies for the first 500 electric cars to be bought by private owners(whatever car brand).


To put things into perspective, the most popular car sold in Estonia in 2010 was Škoda Octavia - 489 cars.

With all due respect but... don't you have something more interesting and/or productive to do?!?

Like studying for your driving license, maybe

Now I have more spare time. I already have taken my term tests.
Here's the Italian map. It's a bit large:

Funny Google maps bug...

1. Go on Google maps
2. Click get directions (by car)
3. Type in Japan (as A) and China (as B)
4. You'll get a nice route that crosses the sea
5. If you look well at the directions given, you'll see Jet Ski across the East China Sea on number 42...

From Wikipedia about Google's so-called easter eggs:
Quote:
In addition, the search engine calculator provides the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything from Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.[195] Furthermore, when searching the word "recursion", the spell-checker's result for the properly spelled word is exactly the same word, creating a recursive link.[196] Likewise, when searching for the word "anagram," meaning a rearrangement of letters from one word to form other valid words, Google's suggestion feature displays "Did you mean: nag a ram?" [197] In Google Maps, searching for directions between places separated by large bodies of water, such as Los Angeles and Tokyo, results in instructions to "kayak across the Pacific Ocean." During FIFA World Cup 2010, search queries like "World Cup", "FIFA", etc. will cause the "Goooo...gle" page indicator at the bottom of every result page to read "Goooo...al!" instead.
So it's not really a bug, it's an inside joke

It took some time . Really, I don't know. I made that map after seeing one with all Spanish provinces relocated, only Navarre remained in its site. But once I spent 3 hours updating my Spanish towns list, which includes all towns with 20000+ people. They are almost 400!

This might sound as a dumb question, but I'm still asking because of couriosity...

Are there any Interstate routes in the US that don't respect the minimal conditions for a motorway (I mean, they don't have 2x2 lanes, grade separated interchanges etc.)? Any half-profile motorways or similar roads?

I-180 in Cheyenne, Wyoming is a simple city boulevard with traffic lights. I-70 in Breezewood, Pennsylvania comes to mind, much like I-78 in Jersey City

Only scrolling two tables. Was the same Wikipedia page, but the table was sorted by population and the other by surface.

traffic in paris at 19.45, saturday



I hate paris public transport. I took a bus, and the driver change his mind in the middle of the itinerary, due to the fact that traffic wasn't going anywhere and we were staying in the front of the same interchange for 30 minutes, and took peripherique to get to the bus final station, ignoring all the other stops, including mine. what a dumbass

didn't see one. maybe due to roadworks. they are building a new tramway along the east inner ring. whatever, in some years paris traffic system will simply crash. they're doing nothing to improve road network, just opening new tramways, which are 100% busy a day after opening.

Have you seen that traffic option is now avalibe in Hungary? But it must be a beta version, because every motorways are always showed as yellow while nothing special is going on. But in Budapest it's quite accurate during the daytime. I used it for a few times and it helped me to avoid the jams. But somehow during the night on some places it isn't refreshed. Now everything should be green but there are a lot of other colours.
