I wonder why. Myself I am from Germany, been often enough in Czech Republic. Czech food is usually boring - basically the same as in Southern Germany - and the bakeries aren't really anything special. You'll probably find more interesting bread in a small German town than anywhere in Prague.

Because the revenue of Airbus is only the revenue of the fixed wing aircraft manufacture division while the revenue of Boeing is everything: airplanes, helicopters, rockets and satellites. Better try this.

And no, not all top pharma companies are US based. Boehringer Ingelheim and Bayer are German, GlaxoSmithKline is British, Novartis and Roche are Swiss, Sanofi is French. Okay, Merck is nowadays American, but it was in fact started as a German company.

So, before you start flag-waving, better check the facts first.

There are thicker skullcaps and they also cover the ears. Might not fit the current helmet so you would need a second helmet for the winter.

To me, personally, given decent clothing and spiked tires, the worst thing about cycling in winter is having to be slow enough so I don't have to breathe with my mouth, and this takes a lot of fun from cycling.

What does being totalitarian have to do with anything?
In the USSR there was no airport security at all and airplanes could be boarded almost like trains until several hijackings happened in the 1970ies. In fact, il-86 design allowed the passengers to bring their luggage with them.

Some people carve careers, others chisel them.
