Yes there was. For us, civilization stopped after Austria.

I may be mistaken here but as far as I know, the amount of sugar in Coca-Cola varies by country.

Also, Carlsberg that is made in Latvia (that's sold in Estonia as well) tastes different that the one sold in Western Europe.

Was this border better than others?

@Rebasepoiss: But is it worse or just "different". This seems to be the point of this discussion here.

Well, my statement still holds, it wasn't a wall or barbed wire. Anyway, don't take my "never" too literally, of course the border was "tough" the first years after WWII. But that was half a century ago.

There was no barbed wire in Germany and Hungary yet at that time, so YU - I border was just as typical cold war border as others. Even more troublesome due to ongoing teritorial dispute.

Actually, Road_UK is right.

Anything south of Austria was never considered orderly by western Europeans.

EDIT: To be honest, it wasn't orderly anyway.

I know what it was like, but Road_UK's reply (to what exactly?) was completely uncalled for and just his usual trolling. I'd prefer, if we kept discussions here civilized and friendly, if it's not too hard.

I understood his comment as sarcastic. He also says things directly without any curves, that could mean for many also not politely.
Personally that does not bother me actually I'm often like him.

Does it also not bother you when he doesn't allow any criticizing of America whatsoever? Quite hypocritical of him, isn't it?

I really don't think he was trying to be unfriendly or uncivilized, just expressing what the perception of Eastern Europe was at the time.

For what it's worth.

How'd we become involved in this?

EDIT: For that matter, there are forums where discussing other participants in this way can get you into trouble....
