Yeah! . The Top Gear guys drove the 2nd one (Stelvio pass) and they decided the road was the best one in Europe, but then they were sent to Romania and there they changed the title to the top road on the list (The Transfagasaran).

My synchronicity is freaking me out. I accidentally (doh) stumpled upon this article about the Battle of the Frigidus in modern Slovenia (never heard of it before) and guess what: it was fought in 394, on September 5th and 6th - today.

Have a nice time

Damn... French Alps Shooting

Quote:
The father of a British family murdered in a shooting in the French Alps has been named as Saad al Hilli, according to reports.

A French police source told AFP news agency that the 50-year-old Iraqi-born father was originally from Baghdad, but lived in Claygate, Surrey.

He was found dead on Wednesday in his bullet-riddled BMW with the engine still running in eastern France, along with his wife and another woman - believed to be one of their parents.

A passing British cyclist on holiday discovered the bodies and alerted the emergency services at around 3.50pm (French time).

Roadgeekery can be relevant to work!

I was proofing an invitation just now and saw directions telling people to get off I-76 at "Exit 38: I-676 East/Central Philadelphia." The slghtly-embarrassing part was explaining why I know that's wrong. (It's not exit 38, and hasn't been since they renumbered them about 12 years ago: it's now exit 344. I didn't actually know the number; had to search StreetView. :-) )

Okay, back to work....

Two weeks ago a rich couple (around 60 y.o.) was murdered in their house in Lignano Sabbiadoro. Both were stabbed at their troath but everything was in order and nothing was stolen (they had around 100k € in cash, a lot of jewelry and even 60 millions of forgotten and now wortless lire). The hypotesys is a vendetta for economical reasons and not an attempt of robbery. Murders are still unknown although their DNA (probably two persons) had already been isolated. :-(

I almost ran over a chihuahua today. Thank god I was driving quite slowly, the crazy dog appeared from nowhere and jumped right in front of my car. Oh yeah, and I got stuck for an hour on A1 by Postojna due to an accident.

I think he more likely ran over the dog than the Mexican state.

Yes, the world's smallest dog. It already crossed the road a few seconds before (so I slowed down, but not exactly to 20 km/h), but it disappeared. And then all of a sudden jumped in front of me from somewhere. Thank god for ABS, otherwise the chihuahua would be toast now. I don't even wanna imagine all that mess.

I have seen some dead cats, ran over by cars. The last one I saw was in one of many roundabouts my hometown has.
