pretty sure you are 10 times more likely to die on a train then in a plane so i'm gonna say plane


But crash with Train = probably death, while crash with Plane = Almost certain Instadeath

I'd say Walk! 8-)

I have been checked for drugs by polish airport security, NOT a nice experience. I feel we're going off topic tho -- perhaps we should make separate topic, or just end the discussion...

Is it true that in Europe, most larger trucks are governed to be unable to pass 90 kmh?

80 actually if it pulls a trailer...

Otherwise I think that everything that classes as a truck (Above 3.5 tons iirc) are limited to 90 Km/h as are Buses although they require a yet another clearence on your drivers license...

Oh and this is for sweden not sure if there are exactly the same regulations in the rest of Europe.

The Hennessy version holds the current standing mile record at 257.7 mph and I love its 1960's heritage. Obviously then this is my favorite car. Personally I've always been a fan of Ford and Mercedes. Anybody else?


I love my little Opel Zafira (built in 1992) which is still doing his job :).

My 93 corolla has ~400,000km without ever needing a major overhaul! These things just keep going!

Eh Dad's commute car is a real gem! A 82' Mazda 1.1 323 with choke and everything :) And only roughly 60 000km.

The only problem it ever had was one percussion cap dried dried out and it fell apart when we happen to touch it.
Still ~10$ fix

Wait what? That is almost certainly nonsense at least for the first world. I'm on mobile so I can't look up the statistics but I will.

If I'd live in Vienna itself I wouldn't own a car. Public transportation gets you everywhere in the city faster and cheaper than your car. Many people don't own a car. Especially since the seasonal public transport ticket is 300€ (60€ for students)

Trains "crash" more often than planes, planes are more lethal when they crash.
