  • "Deadly stick"

    5, 2015 resident of UK, relaxed walking through the national Park of the Brecon Beacons with a selfie-stick. Also relaxed he wanted to photograph myself with the camera mounted on a selfie-stick. But for some reason he did not attach importance to the fact that at this time the weather was bad and very strong storm. As a result, in the raised up selfie stick was hit by lightning, the man died on the spot.

    In fairness, though, it should say that on the same day in the national Park from lightning has killed one person, but without a selfie stick.

That's it, that's a good place to start: who, where, where and in what quantity goes. Otherwise, it's a conversation about anything. The situation can be quite different: the cost of rent sometimes exorbitant and sometimes almost zero, can drive one person, maybe five. Someone once a day traveling from the suburbs for one and a half euros, and someone who actively travels around the County. Sometimes, the cost of airport transfers is that it is cheaper to take the car just to make only two trips of 10-15 km to town and back. Another question is whether to bother with this... Not all life situations to contain in a single formula: "public transport is always cheaper". ...
