I once had been told to switch off my digital camera during an Easyjet flight between Venice and Catania. However, when the hostes stopped looking at me, I continued to take pics.

I used to have one of those. Someone stole it at school when I forgot to take is off my bike. Whoever did it was incredibly stupid. They took the device, but not the wires, so the thing is practically useless. Over 4 years later those wires are still on my bike

I haven't had one of those since.

A friend here had a cheap 2€ lamp for her bike, but the support got broken, so she had to use duck-tape to make it stay on the bike to get home from our place. Until then she always removed it when leaving the bike on the street. Now with all the duck-type we thought no one would bother, but it seams someone did, the lamp disappeared one night, the bike being parked right at the entrance to the house.

The current term is duct tape, but duck tape is not wrong, because the current term originated from duck tape.

It's very much dependent on a) the airline and b) the local aviation regulator. Our airlines down here allow you to use your mobile devices in flight mode, but they must be switched off (not deactivated, off) for take-off and landing.

One of our low cost carriers (recently liquidated) didn't allow mobile devices at all, regardless of flight mode. They were using a fleet of MD-80 type aircraft, which apparently are a lot more susceptible to electromagnetic interference than more modern aircraft (which everyone else here uses).

Top reasons to say that Google Translate is an evil introduction:

I got a train ticket written in pen in Zagreb, but that's even worse. Adria is too expensive, although they have some actions lately.

Google Translate is like a GPS; useful, but makes many people stop thinking beyond it.
