Ehh..?

I would say 0.2% is close to dead drunk for many people.

I guess he meant 2 g/l, which is more or less 0.2% in volume.

Don't know if you already know it but there is a thread " Wrecks and abandoned cars". It's amazing how many cars lay for years in public spaces.

I've seen photos where they forgot to put the minus sign in one of the coordinates, causing photos made in Palencia to be off the Catalan coast, for example. They have already corrected that. But... Brazilian photos in Serbia? . If they were somewhere in Saudi Arabia...

Just as weird as a Pakistani family driving off the ferry in Calais, in a vehicle with Polish plates on. I couldn't believe it...

Meanwhile in China:

The 15-km-long Yangmingtan Bridge, in the city of Harbin, collapsed killing three.

Not trying to be alarmist here, but since people seem to have some interest in weather, latest forecasts on Tropical Storm Isaac have it heading close to New Orleans. Should be a hurricane by then, but weaker than Katrina. But these things are notoriously difficult to predict; that's hundreds of miles away from where it is now, and two or three days.

24-hour coverage on the Weather Channel here (weather.com) (it's already affecting Florida).

I'm interested in hurricanes and have been watching NBC6 South Florida for the last two days. Those news anchors and meteorologists are really making overtime these days.

Why are the levees and pumps in your country so much better then in ours?

Waarom zijn de dijken en pompen in uw land zo veel beter dan in de onze?

It depends on what you defines as "ours", are you American?

The main difference with the Netherlands and Florida is that the Netherlands is partially below sea level, so it would flood without levees and pumps even in normal circumstances. Florida doesn't flood unless there is a storm surge or 10 inch of rain. While the Netherlands does experience storm surges over 10 feet at times, extreme rain like 10 inches in a day virtually never occurs.

Ah, yes by "ours" I mean American and specifically Louisiana. We all remember Katrina.

Ouch! I'd been guessing AU was Auburn.

Hang in there and get out if you need to. Not that you need me to tell you that.
