If I haven't marked my birthday on SSC does that mean that I don't have a birthday?

Buon compleanno, bogdymol or, as they say in Germany "alles gute zum Geburtstag" (all good things on your birthday, or something like that)

Sorry, but I'm not on SSC for long. Can someone explain (to me and other newcomers) why Struma motorway in Bulgaria is so famous here (it's often mentioned with sarcasm)? And why there is the 'no Struma' rule on Guess the Highway?

Basically, a few years ago, there was this Bulgarian-German bloke on here that kept saying how amazing the Struma motorway was, that it was the best road ever and such and that it had shiny crash barriers (most famous thing in the H&A section, the lovely shiny crash barriers that looked exactly the same as any other new crash barriers), and he made maps and put them on wikipedia. I remember that at the time it was only 29km or something like that. This must have been 4-5 years ago or so. The forumer (Radi) occasionally comes by, says hello and posts a photo of the barrier-fence thing on his balcony which he plans paint to make it look shiny as some sort of tribute to the Struma motorway.

Summarised version, it went on for a long time

Few Urban legends I can see above... In fact Struma motorway is less than 19 km till today, although more 34 new are under construction lately. And the already opened section even is not a real motorway, because they made it on the trace of the old national road illegally without the permits and proper project documents, with too sharp curves and too steep climbs or descents... So it remained with speed limit 90 km/h.

Bogdymol, are these beautiful and incredible yellow ornaments on the building gas pipes or cables?

So the famous Struma motorway has a speed limit of just 90 km/h? I'm dissapointed. The asphalt is so smooth, the markings are thermoplastic, the crash barriers are so shiny so that you can go with ∞ speed...

There is a rule that says that all gas counters have to be installed outside the building. This is what happened
