As if Bulgarians can't read Latin. And even if they don't, they would know how their money looks like anyway.

Wikipedia says that for all laws and regulations, Slovenia adopted the "euro" form, even if for everyday's use it's spelled "evro"... don't know if it's true, though.

yes. to be clear, 'evro' in slovenian is pronounced 'euro' as well. 'v' is often pronouced like 'u'.

Works on SP-099 in Brazil will need 1,000 years to be completed.

The point was that if we know what euro means, you know it too, not the other way around.

Yes, another dumb EU law. We had Slovenian on our money already in 1900, but somehow not in "democratic" EU.

There're other languages, but I only counted those in the Eurozone (SLO, M).

Officially Euro in slovenia is called, yes, you guessed, Euro. Not Evro. Also in Malta, Latvia, Hungary etc ...
And do you really want about 30 languages written on a single banknote? No, it's plain stupid. This is (for a change) a good EU law.

@my machine:
Temperature reading shows about 2 degrees more than in reality.
Otherwise it is a good machine, this year it will see many European countries. And a car of higher middle class should make 300,000 km easily with no major malfunctions, however a proper maintenance and regular inspections are necessary.

@my father million+ km machine: before my father bought current truck it was used for freight hauling across whole Europe. That way a truck can easily make even 200,000 km a year or even more.

Only in EU documents, otherwise it's evro (yes, officially).

Woman admits causing Amsterdam car park fire

Funny if sad news for car owners

Quote:
A fire in a car park in central Amsterdam on Tuesday, which destroyed several vehicles, was probably caused by engine trouble, according to media reports.

A woman who lives in one of the apartments above the Markenhoven garage told a residents' meeting on Wednesday evening she drove in to park her car with smoke coming out of the engine.

The woman said she then parked and took out her mobile phone to contact the ANWB repair service. 'At that moment I saw flames emerging from the right-hand wheel,' she told broadcaster RTV Noord-Holland.

'It's my fault. I took a wrong decision,' she said. 'If I had left it outside, none of this would have happened.'

The broadcaster said other residents applauded the woman as she made her confession. The blaze destroyed five cars, caused smoke and water damage to others and led to over 100 homes being evacuated.
This is how a minor fire can escalate into a disaster if it happens in a tunnel..

Interesting, because also in Latin and in ancient Italian there was not the letter u and v was written instead. The pronunciation depended by the single word. However, in modern school books they use the u also in Latin.

There was always going to be a Cyrillic version on the money. This was never an issue as Cyrillic is one of the three alphabets of the EU. So it's not because it's Bulgarian and we're so special but because it's Cyrillic.
The issue was the spelling. EU was pushing for ЕУРО (euro), which is not that we call it - ЕВРО (evro). In the end it was decided to be ЕВРО.

But this is what happens when you sell your ass to the Latin alphabet

Depends on the word; sometimes it's [v] (like in Slovenija), sometimes [w] (like in evro or avtocesta). AFAIK, there's always been "U" in Latin (f.e. this article in Latin is full of this letter), but "V" was easier to engrave (which is weird, because letters "B, C, D" etc. are also rounded).

As I said, only in official documents and only because Brussels pushed us. Why would they add the 25th article, if "evro" didn't mean anything in Slovenian? Moreover:
Quote:
In normative Slovene language usage ‘evro’ spelling should only be used, except as noted.

Look, regulations are regulations, there are always some compromises. Too much democracy is not a good thing. 30+ languages on a banknote is not practical nor sensible. Don't blame it on Brussels, some things they do, are good.

And about 25th article: read again and you'll understand it. If you won't then read again and as many times until you'll understand (and throw that nationalistic "bad Brussels" crap out of your mind).
