Apparently they have wi-fi on board!

Turns out that Greyhound is in fact owned by First, even in America.
Greyhound is owned by some people in Aberdeen!

Greyhound has changed hands a lot, and went bankrupt twice over last 20 years. They downsized severely, stopped nonsense routes like San Francisco - New York :O

Now they operate more specific routes in US, more direct connections instead of stop-everywhere buses. And they cut the number of locations they serve by more than 2/3. Rather drastic measures.

why is San Francisco - New York a nonsense route ? Must be the ultimate bustrip for tourists going coast to coast exploring the country instead of watching clouds.

If a police chase ended there, would the officers preform a cardiac arrest?

No it happened in villages Častá and Píla near Trnava - http://goo.gl/maps/fFHR. Picture of that square is from Častá but Píla was affected even more because of its location in narrow valley, many houses are damaged.

It has been about 30C for last 3 weeks in this part of Slovakia and now there are some storms all around the country, which it is pretty much normal but they got hail strom there.

GTA-style.

Somebody actually placed a ramp in front of this house and drove into the house at full speed. There were actually people in this room when it happened, but they were not hurt.
