Latest post of the previous page:

We need to form some bike legion.....(for those of you that ride)

I'm so tired of getting chased by cars. They don't pay attention, almost hit you, and then because they're annoyed you're in their way (and i am a safe rider), they freakin chase you in their car, coming really close, beeping the horn.
You don't get in trouble with a gun only if you kill someone, the intent and use of a gun as a threat is serious. And its the same with a car, they use it as a weapon.
I'm ready to call the police each time and make them get out of their car and deal with the situation. Its absolutely ridiculous.
(its one thing to be on the phone, or not paying attention) but to try and push bikers off the road,....only in wien...

A friend. I was there when he did it, all he did was plug the wires that came out of the car (and out of the old car radio) into the sockets of the new car radio. Didnt think anything could go wrong there.. it sounds like a logical explanation, but I dont think there were any other options for plugging those wires in the radio.

Oh come to think of it, the radio doesnt turn on when I start the car actually. I have to manually switch it on.
Or no, I read yours again and it seems that that has nothing to do with it. Ugh!
I shall ask the friend again if he is sure he did it all correctly

Although I just complained about my car radio, I am a cyclist at heart. And I totally agree with you. They had a bike protest a few times last year where cyclist rode through vienna blocking all roads to draw attention to their position in traffic. I dont think the situation will ever change though. It's wien, as you say so yourself

I'm just like every modern woman trying to have it all. A loving husband, a family. I only wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade. That's all.

WHY do they do all the noisy drilling and hammering at 7:30 in the morning, and finish with that around 10 am, and then start doing quieter stuff. WHY can't they do it the other way around? Jeez.

Today has several arghs:

I have a big, painful bruise on my arm after the nurse messed up drawing blood this morning. I have the pregnancy diabetes again and have to do a home blood test 4 times a day and I have to go back to the AKH again for more tests in a week.

Joseph Haydn can stick his Opus 53 where the sun doesn't shine.

And isn't Esterhazytorte the most ridiculous, fussy, throw-everything-in-and-hope-it-sticks cake you've ever come across?
