    I took my first license test semi-drunk and at 16 1/2... Probably explains a lot, there. :)
    I don't know what part of the North you've driven in, Belgar, but there's sure a ton of fucktards on the road up here. I drive about 1000 miles a week for work, and I'm constantly surrounded by them. :|

    Bates - I was driving in DC and Northern GA, but I guess FL is so bad that anywhere outside FL is good ;-)

    Still beats driving in Africa and 12 hours on a bush taxi especially when you see burned out taxi in a ditch. Although, driving a rented moped was fun, and I somehow survived the dirt roads.

    My daughter got her license just last year here in Florida. I don't remember how much it cost. The fee was nominal. The test is a joke. I hate driving down here because there are so many idiots on the road. One lady actually managed to park her car sideways in a ditch 10 feet off of the road. The door was on the ground and her tires were in the air. I have no idea how she managed it. We routinely have people hit power poles which are a good 5 - 10 feet off of the side of the road. I've even seen a few jump a ditch to hit a power pole. We call it "car vs. pole". My money is on pole.

    In the Netherlands 20-30 lessons of 1 hour before you can do the exam. Total cost 1800-2000 euros.

    I like white ale, and Skyforger's new album kicks ass.

    That will be all.

    I think that's because Americans don't get issued with identity cards at age 14- It's the same in the uk, unless you have a passport, applying for your driving license requires you to ask a "person who has good standing in the community" to sign your application...

    Ooooh it's soooo cold, read the tips from our experts on how to dress to sruvive the cold.



    For fucks sake, it's only minus 14 C...

    I never saw the the word only connected with the -14C-value before ^^

    -14 IS fucking cold ^^, well I guess down here in Bavaria we're not used to those temperatures for longer periods of winter ;)

    Yesterday I went out of the house thinking "damn it's cold". It was -2,5C :lol:

    When it starts getting below -20 I can say it's cold, when below -25 it is cold for sure, and THEN you really need to start thinking about what to wear ;)
