It is a sort of sexual party which involves old politicians and young women dancing and having sex from behind.

A great contribution of civilization passed by the late Qaddafi on to Berlusconi.

I remembered a funny thing that happened in Romania few years ago. There was a young girl (~20 years old) that married an old and very rich man. They were at an interview for a Romanian TV station:
Quote:
Reporter: where do you like to have sex? [obviously refering to a place: bedroom, car etc.]
The girl: [innocent face mode on] in the ass

One parallel case.

Llivia is a Spanish village, located in Catalonia but an enclave in French territory.

In the Treaty of Pyrenees (17th century) several villages passed from Spain to France. It was written in Spanish and French and the village of Llivia rejected to be part of France according that they had the status of "Villa", given by one king... and even the translation into French was the same for several words it wasn't in Spanish.

Near four centuries later the situation remains. About the border Puigcerda-Llivia where you have to cross France, there is free pass and a lot of curious situations I wrote in the borders thread.

But... Llivia has its own municipality with the same status that any other from Spain (in one thread we talk about municipalities closed between them that could join themselves and someone said that according to a proposal it couldn't apply to Llivia and to Formentera because those municipalities do not "touch" any other one) and....... they have a long property in the north of his territory but inside France.

This is... inside their municipality there are houses, streets, countries... that can be public or private.
In the north of this village there is a great surface inside France but the "owner" is the municipality of Llivia.

It was made to gave them areas for animals and agriculture, as well as to go there obviously they had to be allowed to cross the border.

Oh, dear. Jeremy Clarkson's put his oversized foot in his oversized mouth again:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-15977813

Surely everyone understands that this sort of thing's his "shtick" (American faux-Yiddish for an "act," a role one plays)....

Any opinions from Brits?

In this story I see two typical problems of our times:

1) News spreading on the media out of any context: the way they tell the PM sounds more like "JC is a dangerous murderer".

2) Unions being so busy to overconsider themselves, and live in a selfreferenced reality, to forget there's a real world out there.


Did they really want to communicate as "big news" that JC said something politically uncorrect? BAM! What a story!

Exactly, it is not like many people were watching. He is a mildly entertaining idiot, like Boris Johnson (a comedian who plays the act of the mayor of London) but some people think his word is gospel.

You can see them in their respective threads. I was thinking about allowing photos, but I think it would be a mess, if some people posted too many photos of the same motorway. Rules can always be changed though. What do others think?

Meanwhile, in... well I don't know where, but they say "kurva" so many times!



You can go straight to 5:00 to see some real action

What do they say in the aftermath?
