0,5 l bottle of some mineral water costs about 50-70 cents in Slovakia, well in a foodshop, in cafe it might be more for even less lol.

Yes, because there is no head of state nor a prime minister, ministers can be re-elected endlessly and as there is not the concept of "majority" and "opposition" parties. Switzerland is the only country in the world with this kind of government (there were others in the past), and even Wikipedia has articles only in Italian and Polish.

here in HR some brands have even 0,25 PET bottles i mean, wtf is that?! when i dring a water and have real thirst, i never drink less than 0,5 l (and i don't find myself a cow of an elephant)! when i don't feel that much thirst, i can resist some more time, i don't need immidiately get my glass of water. that's what i call tax on idiotism! and it costs about 0,4€.
1,5 l bottle costs about 0,7€, half a litre costs cca 0,5€.
i like that aromatized waters when i am thirsty, but they are quite expensive imo, cca 1€ 1,5 l. that's too much for water with E-313.


the most expensive water that i bought was in Barcelona at Diagonal. i was incredibly thirsty, so i bought a bottle of water. it was 0,25 or 0,3, i don't remember well anymore, it costed 2,3€ and it was not cooled in the fridge.

A Russian truck driver ditched a truck full of brand new Mercedes S-classes in Estonia. The cars were on their way to Russia. 3 cars out of 6 got minor body damages. I wonder if the new owner will ever know...

Hey! This is right next to Cişmigiu Park in Bucharest! I've also took a picture of this car last week but it was parked on the other side of the street:

I took that picture last week on Wednesday. It seems that someone actually moved the car accross the street. Did he see through the windshield?

Lol I have never seen something like that over here. I guess it is probably because there are 1000x more birds in Bucharst than in whole Slovakia.

Btw, these autumn mornings annoys me, when I leave home in the morning it is just 5 - 10 C dark and foggy, but when I leave school it is mid 20` and sunny.

In my village there is a small truck abandoned in the same place (an urban street) for about a year. That truck has the advertisement of an Italian (from Alto Adige, 200-300 km from here) food company but the plate is Slovak (pre 2004). Since I don't think an Italian company can own a truck with foreign plate and would't abandon it (it looks quite new) I guess it was stolen, applied a fake plate, used for an illegal purpose and abandoned. What your guys think? D'u know any similar situation?

Quite a central reservation:

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Tebay,...src=6&t=h&z=16

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Tebay,...188.05,,0,6.94

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Tebay,...,327.02,,0,5.3

Maybe not so impressive in some countries, but for the UK, especially in the last link, its pretty wide

At least here it may be explained with the slope, but a bit further north there's another one, where the reason isn't so obvious:

Is it possible that southbound part was built before northbound of course as single carriageway in the beginning? Because that would explain it.

At last Youtube and Google Maps are available in Estonian... which is irrelevant, really, since I'm one of the few Estonians who selects Estonian language at web pages (where possible).

I think they did it mainly for the lulz at that point.

And it kind off adds up with the section with a slope, although the flat bit is the serction with the widest central reservation.

Its 27C in London at the moment
