The olympic games are over. :-(

Hungarian athletes won 8 golden medals, really succuesful games for us.

During this 16 days I watched the games day and night, in TV and in Eurovision's online streaming channels. It was great! Now I'm sad that it's over :-(

But, I will have time again. So I'm back :-)

It will hit the 300,000 km mark before the 200,000 mile one . My car has either surpased or not yet reached the 100,000 mark (130,000 km or just over 80,000 miles).

I have few thousand km until 300,000 mark and I have planned another 100,000 to do before buying another car (of course if not something unforeseen happens)

I'm little travelled comparing to yours . I have to ask a relative of mine (The one who managed to drink and drive at same time) about its car kilometrage, I remember it had already 60,000 km after 3 years.

And I have a photo of a bus which had hit the half-million kilometer mark.

My father bought 9 years old truck when it had a little less than a million km. This is actually considered pretty normal.

Americans are so dumb! After thinking Poland has no sea (When actually has), they now think that Gasol brothers are American:

But no, they are from Sant Boi de Llobregat, a town located near Barcelona. I like the town name, it translates to Saint Baudilus.

I'm sure the Spanish think that the "Gasol brothers" are so iconic that not knowing of them is "dumb", but the vast, vast majority of the world simply doesn't know or care to know them. Now, to think that not knowing who they are makes one dumb is, in and of itself, pretty dumb. Metadumb, if you will.

I agree, if you don't know Marc and Pau Gasol, it is not a problem.
But if you know them, and you think they're American, it IS a problem. And the twitters did not ask "Who the f* is that tall bearded guy in red jersey?" but "Why do they play for Spain?".
