    Default Europe

    I just got back from Europe.

    To find the tangled mess that is your overhead power lines.

    It was also my first time to go through a full body scan at the airport. Putting those in cost you $3 billion.

    I forgot to take off my belt.

    The American behind me tut-tutted.

    Why do Americans thinks it's OK to tut-tut?

    I am in full agreement with you on power lines. Unfortunately the cost of burying them would be astronomical and yet, it must eventually be done. Just today we had a 3 hour outage because some nimrod decided to have a contest pitting his Jeep against a power pole. Neither won.

    I like the full body scan. I like to eat a can of beans about an hour before the pat down.

    You might have taken a lap top along and kept up your responsibility to the forum. Many a tut-tut to you from us all.

    They don't mess around at the Zurich airport. I've been going there since the early 80's and they've had guards with automatic weapons all over the place and tanks and other armored vehicles on the tarmac since I can remember. and please make sure you pay your VAT taxes if you qualify.
    tut-tut. The Swiss have been tut-tuting for many years at foriegners
