I'm OK on both issues. I have Dab+ in my car, wifey doesn't since she's driving a crappy MB A-Classless thingie without. Who would have thunk, no Dab in a 2013 "premium" car? We didn't check when we bought it, took it for granted that there would be.
I'm surprised there's no cassette player in the POS. Then again she doesn't listen to the radio while driving.
As for jail time for killing wolves? They should have tripled the time, but first tarred and feathered those idiots, displayed them on the city plaza for a week and then put them in the slammer. And while at it, neutered them to prevent breeding.

And the wolf killers should be made to listen to FM radio 24x7 during their jail time. :twisted:

Norwegian adds to its Dreamliner fleet with order for 19 787-9s
Largest single 787-9 order by a European airline

Norwegian placed an order for 19 787-9s on Thursday as the Oslo-based carrier took a significant step in expanding its long-haul fleet into the next decade.

The deal, valued at more than $5 billion at current list prices, also includes options for 10 additional 787-9s. It is the largest single order for 787-9s from a European airline.

"This order of 19 new Dreamliners is a major milestone and enables Norwegian to offer a wide range of new routes to consumers worldwide,” said Bjørn Kjos, Norwegian’s CEO. “The order is also essential to further strengthening the company in the global competition."

He said that the airline’s load factors have been above 90 percent in two years of operating low-cost long-haul flights, proving “the demand for affordable flights between Europe and the U.S. and Europe and Asia. Future growth and competitiveness in the long-haul market depends on the fuel-efficient, state-of-the art 787 Dreamliner. Not least, the Dreamliner offers the best passenger experience.”

Norwegian currently operates eight 787-8s and had previously ordered 11 787-9s through lease agreements. With today’s order, the carrier will expand its total 787 fleet to nearly 40 airplanes in the coming years. Norwegian has more than 150 unfilled orders from Boeing, including 100 737 MAXs.

"Norwegian has led the way in utilizing the exceptional performance of the 787 to develop a successful low-cost long-haul operation," said Todd Nelp, Commercial Airplanes vice president of European Sales. “The addition of 787-9s to the Norwegian fleet will enable it to grow its route structure, while providing more range and capacity with outstanding passenger comfort.”

Norwegian serves more than 130 destinations across Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, the U.S. and Southeast Asia, with a fleet that also includes 90 Next-Generation 737-800s. In 2014, the airline carried nearly 24 million passengers.

Well done Kjos, but I'm not a big fan of neither Norwegian nor Screamliners. Nothing wrong with the aircraft per se, but I don't like 3-3-3 seating and I don't fly ANA much these days.
Funny they didn't mention that Norwegian, or a sister company, also ordered some Airbis.

Graduated from the same godforsaken place, still looks the same now. We were too thirsty to waste time on dancing and shit when we graduated.

Has a computer (without internet access)

That is a grave violation of the most basic human rights.

We treat everyone extremely well and fairly equal. That is maybe why we are a fairly happy, fairly prosperous country with a fairly low crime rate.
The opposite doesn't seem to work that well, does it?

I don't think so, and as we may find out in time, probably not the court. He has a right to have his complaints tried, but what he really wants is media time. He got it.

A computer without internet access is like a glass with no water or a plate with no food. Or worst. Torture, I say :mrgreen: .
