The forum I moderate uses Bulletin and has such a button (no dislike, indeed)

AutoPareri.com, just to be clear


[Language question: should I say "has such a button", "has such button" or neither are correct?]

It was clear that it would have ended in that way. How you can think to have a such sharp curve (plus a private driveway) on a motorway?

What are you planning to justify by this statement allowing the variable traffic signs?

I've heard one of the most difficult questions for students of International Relations in Bari is Which country borders Italy in the northeast?

A Bulgarian guy recently asked me if I knew which countries border Bulgaria. Being a map geek, I answered correctly and he was really surprised. I guess Italians have a bad fame about geography

I would not say so. I know a couple of Italians and even worked with one. The latter was a manager, actually an administrator back then, he has become a manger some time later. We both worked for an Italian luxury leather furniture company, which took over a British bankrupt firm. Anyway, he was, and with no doubt still is, well educated and have had really good geographical and historical knowledge of the world. I'd rather say, it was more than good.

An English guy, thick as a plank, met a girl on the internet once from Jamaica. He has never been abroad before and assumed that I'd be able to take him there in my van.

Isn't Jamaica on the other side of the English Channel?

There is a Jamaican branch in Peckham, but he was chatting to the real one in the Caribbean.

And what about Americans? They think that Slovakia is part of France or that it is located somewhere in Siberia

USA'ns are really bad in Geography. Not to blame them, but the sole centric of world view of their media and system is tho.

When news agencies make fatal mistakes over and over again you wonder if they even care to take a look on a map....
