I was also addicted to GTA. I started playing GTA 2 (that 2D verison), and later on GTA 3 Vice City.

Another (past) addict here! GTA3 totally blew my mind. I couldn't drive for a while, because I felt the urge to run over pedestrians...
Now I'm playing GTA4, but it's on hold at the moment... not much time...

It's nonsense because taking a bus across the country is maybe the worst way to go. It's a 5-hour flight between the two, so I would imagine that a bus ride would be 5 days long. Who in their right mind would sit on a cramped bus for 5 days?

When going across the country, there's only two ways to do it. One is to fly, which is quick and pretty cheap when you think about it. The other is do drive, and then detour to all of the places that you want to see in one mega road trip.

How come that you get all these crazy crashes and accidents in the NL?

Funny thing happened to me this evening:

I went with my mother at the local train station because she had to catch a train, I helped her with her bag, and after that the train leaved the station. 10 minutes after that I realised that the home keys were accidentaly at her, so that ment that either in the 2 following nights I would sleep in my car, or I will go after the keys So I had to think to which train station on her route I can drive quickly so I get my keys back. 32 km by car / 35 km by train later... I got my keys back

Luckly I wasn't caught speeding because a police car with a speed trap was set only at my return trip, when I was relaxed and driving within the speed limit

PS: I shouldn't complain anymore that trains in Romania are slow, because today it was a good thing.

At Innsbruck (160 km from Munich) I realize I left my voter registration card in Munich, and without it I could not vote. After a moment of panic, I went back to Munich, got my damn card, and headed immediately back towards Italy.

Result: 970 km instead of 650... but every vote counts!!

Spinoza, you could have asked for a new one!

"Chi avesse smarrito la propria tessera elettorale personale, potrà chiederne un duplicato agli uffici comunali nei cinque giorni antecedenti quello di inizio della votazione (cioè da martedì 7 giugno sino a sabato 11 giugno) dalle ore 9 alle ore 19 nonché nei giorni della votazione (domenica 12 giugno e lunedì 13 giugno) per tutta la durata delle operazioni di voto."
