EU isn´t generous

The things they do in Bulgaria are jsut rediculous, they should punish the people who do wrong, send stuff which controls everything there to keep corruption away but not stop the money for several months. Projects for which people are waiting years, even decates get even mroe delayed jsut because of EU´s dumb arrogance. If EU behaves like that the best thing would have been to not enter EU, Bulgaria would have made it´s way without it and KEPT the money to build the infrastructure and everything else isntead of wasting it away without getting it returned. the Behaviour of EU is shitty!

Guess the overriding message to this thread would be - feeding trolls is bad for your health. It's a little like smoking cigarettes to cure cancer, rather contraindicated.

You're right. Let's discuss population of lemurs in south-east Peru in this thread.

OK, clarify this for me. Tell us how EU Infrastructure Project works and why is this being delayed? Do you mean that EU is not giving away money due to corruption charges against Bulgaria?

Its as simple as it sounds. Bulgaria is bad in acquiring EU funds(20% of possible funds),and corruption further halts the usage of the already acquired money.(For comparison,we are the best among the newcomers with 82%)

If there is too much corruption then it's not the problem of the EU but of Bulgaria. All the other 26 countries have to fight corruption themselves, most of them are quite successful. So why should the other countries make an exception and pay for a delegation of EU-staff to solve Bulgaria's corruption problem.

And if corruption really exists (in any country) I'm also glad, that they don't pay too much because most of the money would flow in the wallets of some corrupt people.
All countries of the EU fight against corruption, ones more, ones less successful. IMO it is very easy always to critisize instead of investing all the energy complaining requires for fighting corruption.

And the last thing is that Bulgaria itself wanted to join EU, if it would be so bad, you wouldn't have done it I assume.

Why do roads age so fast?

I am always amazed by the looks of very new roads, everything is clean and looks like untouched, shiny crashbarriers, very white markings and so on. But after max 1 year this is gone. Most roads dont´look new after one year but look like heavily used. Are the materials so sensitive to envionment conditions? I think a road should be closed every 3 months for 1 day to get cleaned, I don´t know if that happens but that would be way better since the look of a road is important and that not only to me. It can´t be that a road looks new only 6 months, only the highest standart roads look new 1 year and more. I hope when in some years the ******* dumb companies have finally invented engines that go with clean fuels roads will keep good looking longer.

No, but they should either use smooth materials where dust and paticles can´t keep on or clean them regurarly, roads represent a country and it´s bad if roads are dirty and don´t look like new in a few months.

If you make the roads all shiny and impervious to dirt and grit, you'll end up making them without grip for your tyres aswell. Just think of the beating all roads get year in year out. Aside from cars and heavy trucks you've got the weather. Snow, sand, dirt, grit, ice, you name it. I agree roads should look okay, but I think the driving comfort is number one. Potholes are a mortal sin though, however those don't form in just one year, do they? Another note might be money, countries have millions of miles of asphalt, tarmac, concrete or whatever their roads are made up of. Just consider constantly fixing every single one of them, each year, every year. I'd rather have healthcare thank you - it's just not doable. You'll also need an army of people, not to mention materials and you'll have to close those roads and set up detours aswell.

If you can develop the perfect road surface you'll have made a genius discovery though.

Potholes can pop up rather fast. Sometimes a piece of the pavement just comes loose when a truck runs over it, and the rest of the traffic deepens/widens it out. This is especially a problem when asphalt is layed in too cold or wet conditions. The top layer doesn't stitch too well together to the lower layers and/or foundation that way.
