De jure is part of Georgia, de facto is a country. It's a grey situation like Transnistria, Kosovo, South Ossetia, Nagorno Karabak, Northern Cyprus, Somaliland, Palestine, Western Sahara, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.

Not for a long time. It seems a bit awkward, but not odd at all. See these things every day.

Matteo Biggi, 30, docker at Genua harbour, killed Matteo Biggi, 30, docker at Genua harbour. Not a suicide, but an incredible case of homonymy.

Trying to find an English source for this (so I can share it with someone); you should be proud (or not...) that your post is number 25 when I google "matteo biggi."

Imagine if someone that knows Matteo Biggi reads this story. Is his friend dead or a killer?

In Google.es is 11th when I search the same (It's at the top of 2nd page!)

Edit: And now I just entered here from Google.

It seems that the late Matteo Biggi was romancing the killer's sister. Matteo Biggi the killer was depressed and his sister dating his homonym triggered the raptus.

SSC is extremely well ranked for many searches. Skybars and off-topic forums are usually non-searchable (and not accessible to unregistered users/visitors), but that is not the case of the Roadside rest area.

Some of these news threads on here are really interesting, and lots of interesting information from interesting people is to be found. Others are total junk, and nobody really has anything to say. I hardly reply on any other sub-forum then this one by the way.

I stay away from the Dutch forums these days, even though I am proud to be partly Dutch. But on some of these forums they go on and on about this new lovely building here and that nice tree over there, in the off-topic forum replies usually don't last longer then a sentence from people trying to be funny, and in all other forums there seems to be a Snowdog hidden in everyone...

I enjoy the French and the American forums the most.

You mean the French and American forums on SSC or French and American forums elsewhere?

I hardly ever get out of roads, except to Infrastructure and Mobility, and that's only because our fearless leader moved the license plate threads there.

You might want to join aaroads.com/forums and see if you can get into an interesting discussion about "why freeways with four lanes in each direction need three passing lanes in each direction." ;-) (I haven't been there in a while myself; they can get ornery, so at some point I just said to myself, "not until after the election," and I haven't been back yet.)

A viral video for something, obviously. CCTVs in real world don't have microphones.

But I also hang mostly in the Bulgarian Subforum on SSC...

What? Never heard of that thread

I check out 2 license plate threads and the Burj Khalifa-thread. And in the Dutch part of SSC (HHF) I mostly check out road-related topics.

Besides that: Highways & Autobahns
