Re: The A380 Scarebus Saga Continues - Near Total Disaster

They should use manly diesel engines instead of those girlie hair blowers.

Indeed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnOSRCuZBkY
Those are high reving girlie engines operated by girlie girls.
A real man's engine maxes out at 125 rpm, a bit higher for generators.

Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

If any of you guys read Car Magazine you would have seen a picture, a small one, of the dear Kia Rio proudly waving the Norwegian flag while waiting to cross the flooded highway. June issue, page 50. Magnifying glass advisable. Per How the hell did you know you'd be in the magazine? I love that you...

Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

If there's anyone still out there? Couple of "amusing" episodes from the trip. After Europcar failed to pick us up at the airport we found that they're "airport location" was opposite said airport, and that we had to cross an 8-lane highway, and a two lane feederway via a bridge. Not going to happen...
