Good to know for the future.
At least in the Highways&Autobahns world subforum. There's plenty of such discussions in Euroscrapers DLM section.

Every mod decides for his subforum. However some things such racism or insults should be banned everywhere. Politics and religion aren't taboo topics off course if discussed politely, but since is difficult discuss politely when people have different opinions, avoiding starting such discussions may be a wise choice. Sometimes is better use PM instead of flood threads with garbage.

Fair enough, but how are highway church pictures a "contentious issue" here?

No, they were interesting, you should repost on the Italian thread.

How do you want to repost when the post was deleted? Thats what puzzles me. I would understand when some posts would be blocked or moved away, but in this way the posts are just erased. Isnt there a trash bin?

Do you know when the universe is supposed to "die"? In years.

I also think Highway chapels shouldn't had been erased, somehow by inertia together with the offtopic... I find any such places with direct access from motorways very interesting, every different from restaurant/shop or WC building in rest-areas... Not only places for any worship, but also playgrounds, sightseeing, monuments etc. which are somehow included in the highway/motorway

I can somehow imagine 10^76 years (1 and 76 zeros behind it), but that number is just too much.

I think it was Carl Sagan (Cosmos), who once said.

If every second is 500 years, than we have 2 months to come up with something and leave the Earth before it dies. Buisy??

I think he was referring to the death of the Sun, but I think he underestimated it. I think we'd have more than 3 months, in that analogy.

But you said 10^10^76, that is 1 followed by 10^76 zeros.

Ingolstadt today morning. Picture lacks some quality, taken with mobile phone.
Seems it happens pretty often in Spring/Autumn morning because of the Danube.
But enough drivers still drive without any lights.

I had many problems while I lived in Germany with lights. Italians probably tend to turn on too many, but Germans tend to turn on too few.

I turn them on anytime, even in city daylight.
But are the lights obligatory in Germany on highways/motorways?
In Romania for example they are, in the city not.
In Serbia/Macedonia for example they are everywhere and everytime.

In Germany it is only recommended since 2005. In Italy is mandatory

You'd get a few mornings like that in Durban (at least, the far western suburbs where I used to stay) -- and whenever it happened, you'd know you'll be dealing with a really hot and sticky day later. (Temperature in the mid 30s and 90%+ humidity.)

Interesting new feature on google maps. Open google maps (I've already selected a route on Brenner Autobahn) and then click the " 3D> " button from the left (it's right next to "Driving directions to A13").

BTW, does this happen in your country as well? I mean, in Italy any given roadwork has its audience of one or more retired old men "supervising" it
