0 F? Dun wan! My brother is in Luxemburg at he moment and the photos he sends me are very beautiful . . . but full of snow! I've had my fill of the stuff when I was in Chicago . . . add he freezing wind-chill . . . fuggedaboudit

Australian design and invention . . . hence the delicate lines and beautiful overall looks . . . goes well with anything from a bikini to a cocktail dress.

Aussies know kultcha when they see it!

Proof that it is Aussie . . . while they are used for different purposes in New Zealand, hence the low birth rate there.

They can't seem to stay in their own lanes, and I'm not even going to touch on their merging skills (or lack thereof). I would love to see them trying to merge onto BQE in NYC. They would get shot by pissed off drivers for sure.


If you've really 'been around a lot of countries' then you would know what you posted is rubbish . . . A whole continent of Africa awaits your appraisal as do places like Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, India, Pakistan etc etc . . .

The problem with Singapore traffic is that this country measures up to so called Western standards and hardly anybody expect it is different. Purely psychological factor IMHO. Personally I would like to have the driving skills of the drivers in India, not that I want to drive there.

Possibly, but when someone says:

I have to say that Singaporeans are bar none worst drivers


. . . then the 'bar none' would not exclude anywhere.
