No, this is not a touristical tour with the old rolling stock (although I saw written on the carriage that the first mantainance was done in 1966!). This is a normal train that runs in the western part of the country and it's like this everytime I go with it.

No, it's a day train (leaves Timisoara at 1:04 pm).

Here is another stupid thing on this subject: 3 years ago there were 2 trains at 5 minutes difference between each other running on the same railway. The total capacity of the carriages was around 450 passengers. Both of the trains were almost full all of the time. Now there is just a single train with a total capacity of around 200 passengers...

So you say that in UK or Portugal you don't sit down during a 1h30m railway trip and that the train is 200% full?

Yeah, especailly in the UK where the railways are used a lot around London, people have commutes into the city from 1h30 out of the city and stand up everyday

Let me correct you:

That's badly run public transport. Anything that's badly run is bullshit. The problem with this Romanian train is that it has sleeper cars. Why would you use these on a 1h30min trip? A 2+2 seating arrangement and a few extra carriages would probably enable everybody to sit down.

Sometimes public transport is ok. but normaly, it sucs. If it's not overloaded, it's slow, it stinks, there are delays, infrastructure is from the last millennium...

There are few exceptions though, I like TGV and some normal-size planes.

Its the same on some lines here , even with 10 departures per hour. Everyone wants to leave on that train and they can't wait for the next one. The New Haven line trains are the worst standing room only for the first 15 stations then you can a seat but by that time at least 1 and 30 mins has passed. The car can be tense with people cranky , but that tends to be mellow if theres a bar or cafe car.

I'm thinking the exact opposite. He knew it would attract attention like this company below.


souce Pussy natural energy.

I would love to be the ad man for this company. So many slogans possibilities.

....Liquid gold, straight from the source.
....A pussy a day will take your blues away.
....The taste that will leave you satisfied.

They have beaten my mark in the clinched highways mapping... If it is foreign, I will try to beat again that mark. I still have to see half of Spain.

Croatian word "pića" (drink) means pussy in Slovak so we usually have great fun when we go to there.

but it is plural (singular is piće), and you will really rarely hear it because i don't know the context where it would be used in plural.
ok, you can more often find it in singular genitive (which is also pića ). but **** is piča
on the other hand, your word for drink (nápoj) in Croatian means slops (the food for pigs )

Whatsoever, piće means pussies in Slovak.

Btw, in Slovenia they say "jed" (food) which means poison in Slovak (food=jedlo, in Croatian it is jelo if i am sure). Slovenian for child is otrok which means slave in Slovak (child=dieťa,decko(slang)).
