I Bought a Car Today!

Oh yes, I did! Indeed! It’s my 3rd car already. After BMW and VW, now all my attention will be paid to my new Renault Megane. I am progressing if you look at the years of my cars – 1986, 1991, 1997.. Not bad, I would say, not bad at all. If the tendency continues, I will bye a car of the year 2004 in some 2009, and then a car of the year 2012 in some 2012 or 2013.. 😉

It’s a party this night! 8)

Seven Years Gone

That’s it! Seven years have already passed by since the 28th of November, 2000. What’s so special about that date, you might ask, my dear reader. Well, that was the day I passed the theoretical and practical exam and got my driving licence..

Much has happened since then, the main things I remember would be the following:

  1. I have bought 2 cars, one of which is also sold;
  2. I have driven.. well, I don’t know.. could be around 35000 km or so;
  3. I had collected 9 penalty points for speeding 😀 Only two of them are left at the moment, yet till the 23th of December;
  4. I have paid some ~150 LVL for speeding and illegal parking;
  5. I have bought a radar detector, as well as given it away to the police;
  6. I have triggered no accidents!

Ehz, Auld Lang Syne.. 😉

The Act of Terrorism I Experienced

My car broke down, so I was going home by bus yesterday. While sitting and enjoying the way, I started to think about the last time I was forced to use some kind of public transport – I came out to remember March.. So, thinking some thoughts to myself, I was suddenly turned to be one of the victims of an act of a terrorism.. Some caustic gas was emitted by somebody right into the salon of the bus I was in. Everybody around me started to cough at once, it became hard to breathe, I opened the window, but it was still just one thought for everyone – to get out of the bus as fast as possible. However, all windows were opened soon and the gas was blown away. Some people still got out of the bus at the next stop before reaching their destination. So was my experience with a bus after eight months of car driving..

Toilet Triangles

This was the day I had to do the roadworthiness test for my car. But the article won’t be about the result of all this. Well, I visited a toilet at the test place and then, all of a sudden, a problem came up into my brain. Now I can formulate it not to forget:

Make three triangles using just six line segments!

Well, not too complicated, could be given in some olympiad to some 4th or 5th grade students. However, the answer is not seen at once as well. So `draw` your solutions in comments! 😉
