Just some days after I got my American road atlas, my dad has been to Switzerland, Germany and Austria and got this German road atlas for me:

Huge mistake: Bielefeld doesn't exist, but appears in this map:
[IMG]http://i45.************/bff61h.jpg[/IMG]



See Bielefeld Conspiracy.

Only 4 people have been killed in traffic accidents in the first 2 months of 2013 in Estonia compared to 17 in 2012. Interestingly, all 4 were pedestrians.

Today the first subway line of Brescia has been inaugurated. A trip from my home to the city centre, 25 minutes long by bus, now can be done in 6. First day was free of charge, so thousands of people used the metro, more than the organizers expected, resulting in glitches and long queues.

The thing is, many rich states have huge police budgets to fun strong highway police force, so you will run into a few funny cops. Until now, I had an amazing experience with american cops, but you also have to be smart with them. You have to use the term such as "dear officer" and so on.

A friend just returned from a trip to Rome and Napoli.
He said traffic in Napol is horrible, honking all the time, scooter drivers using the pedestrian parts and yelling to make room. The tram he took from the train station to the hostel made an accident with a car. It seemed to him, that rules or color signs are optional too

I was in Naples almost 20 years ago. Looks like it hasn't changed much in this respect.

I think this cop was horny, and frustrated, since he's not a prison guard any more.

Holy crap! The top 1% has 40% of the wealth while the bottom 80% has only 7% of the wealth - that is a really shocking difference. I guess GDP really is a useless indicator of the well-being of people.

The minimum wage is far too low in the United States. A person should be able to make a living with one full-time job. The federal minimum wage is only $ 7.50 per hour (or about $ 1,250 per month at 40 hrs a week).
