General speed limits in Germany are set by the federal government. All limits are multiples of 5 km/h. There are two default speed limits: 50 km/h (31 mph) inside built-up areas and 100 km/h (62 mph) outside built-up areas. While parts of the autobahns and many other freeway-style highways have a posted limits up to 130 km/h (81 mph) based on accident experience, congestion and other facts, many rural sections have no general speed limit. The German Highway Code (StraÃYenverkehrs-Ordnung) section on speed begins with the requirement which may be rendered in English:
Any person driving a vehicle may only drive so fast that the car is under control. Speeds must be adapted to the road, traffic, visibility and weather conditions as well as the personal skills and characteristics of the vehicle and load.
This requirement applies to all roads, and is similar to the "reasonable speed" legal obligation levied in other nations.
Speed limits are enforced with a small tolerance. Driving merely 3 km/h (2 mph) or faster above the posted or implied speed limit is considered a punishable infraction in Germany.
I'll take the American approach any day.
What they do is not pay attention. They don't realize the light has changed. They don't realize they are going slow in the fast lane. And they suddenly change lanes -- typically from the extreme left to the extreme right lane -- when their cell phone GPS tells them that they need to turn right now.
Cell phone using drivers are 50% "just" annoying other drivers, and 50% the deadliest thing on the road.
Now that they have all the money AND have devalued the currency by a factor of 100 AND have all the power and control over every aspect of our lives, there is only one way for things to get better for THEM.
And that is to find ways to get rid of most of us.
People randomly pulling us over and stealing from us is designed to provoke a backlash. There will be more of it, and worse. It is time to stop using the "Welcome to the..." phrases. It is all about goodbyes now.
You don't do everything Coca-Cola wants, you don't get to carry Coke.
You are also missing the time element to this comparison. Coca-Cola is a trifle older than Mojang. Did Coca-Cola have 500 products when it was 5 years old?
Both caffeine and alcohol have one or more positive effects at low dose, then undesirable symptoms at "medium" doses, and then fatal effects.
Regarding the 1000mg of caffeine level, this roughly corresponds to the recommended "no more than 6 cups of coffee in a day". I think the only thing I disagree with you on is the use of the word "toxic" to describe someone consuming 1000 mg of caffeine.
Not really, mainly because the two things we are talking about are consumed for their effect. Maybe I am not understanding your question?
