Hang in there and get out if you need to. Not that you need me to tell you that.
Nah it's ok, honest mistake most make. I'm actually American Univ. in DC, but know quite a number of folks from New Orleans.

Oh, that AU! Given that I went to college three miles from there and lived about a mile-and-a-half from there sophomore year, that should have occurred to me.

But what was American champions of? ;-)

Wrestling, and not that WWE style. We're showing that it's not just the Iowa schools that can lay it out on the mat.

My sister, her husband and kids narrowly avoided a crash with a car driving in the wrong direction, on SS76 superstrada in Central Italy. Of all the stupid things one can do on the road, this is the stupidest, imho.

My father around 15 - 20 years ago met a tractor driving wrong way on a ramp of the SS14 - SR354 cloverleaf. The old farmer just said "Sorry, I took the wrong road".

But driving wrong way for a certain lenght along a motorway or motorway-like road is even crazier..You must be either drunk or on drugs. No excuse exists.

Some years ago an elderly man drove 120km wrong way on the A1 in Italy.

Kočka in Czech, can be used also for hot girl (to je kočka!), we use this Czech word in Slovak too, and "mačka" for a real cat.
