a motorbike can have a windshield too.

That that makes sense.

Americans also call windscreens "windshields"

Just look what they call football.

Some of their cars are fun though. Low quality but fun. I used to have a thing called a Crown Victoria. Comfortable but felt like driving a cathedral.

Don't get me started on fanny packs.

Whatever you do, if you're there and want to smoke, just don't ask somebody if you can bum a fag.

It's normally on a motorbike to shield the rider from wind.

Windshields are for cars. Most motorcycle riders call them Fairings over here.

It really helps when the weather starts getting cold and especially for BUGS during the summer, Its not fun getting smacked between the eyes by a splattering dragonfly. The bugs probably aren't as bad in Europe bc of the lower humidity.

Just look what they call football.

Its much better than a bunch of fairies running around in circles kicking a ball. They should get an Academy Award for the acting job as well. They barely get touched and fall to the ground in agonizing pain. lol We call it Soccer and only little kids play it over here. The best thing about that so called "sport" are the Hooligans!

That game where they wear padding so they don't get hurt and stop and start to fit the adverts in. The World Series that nobody in the world has heard of...

Well, I guess the terms are both correct, just different names in different countries. If Alien learned American English, then he was correct as well. What is it called in Poland, and what does it translate to?

That's because the players are shear muscle and weigh over 300 pounds and three times quicker than a soccer player is.
Plus our football is a contact sport.
You get smacked by them you damn well better have some padding.

The World Series that nobody in the world has heard of...

Tell that to the World Series Little League Association with teams that compete against each other from just about every civilized country in the world for the World Little League Championship title every year.. lol

It is a law in the U.S. that a vehicle driven on a public road must have a windshield.

Windshield/windscreen or in German Windschutzscheibe is in Polish just simple przednia szyba (front glass). Everybody knows that you mean front glass of a car.

Windscreen inserted, replacement car returned back. It was an Opel Mokka E, which fully charged should have a range of 300km. I drove it 90 km since yesterday and the range has dropped by 120 km, i.e. this car is only suitable for the city with a real range of 220-230 km. It is pretty quiet, so quiet that I killed a bird on the way. For the first time it happened to me that a bird flying low in front of my car in the same direction as I was driving did not hear me and I robbed him at 120 km/h. Nice car but it's a pity for the bird.

Am I the only one that hates leather seats?
jon357 71 | 21,171
21 Jun 2022 #462
I like them. Especially in older cars where the leather is better quality.

Black thick leather is good as you transport kids in the car.
pawian 202 | 21,132
22 Jun 2022 #465
Is this thick enough?

Alien 12 | 2,782
23 Jun 2022 #466
Something like that or even thicker. It should endure 9 years of driving kids in the rear seats like in my last car.
pawian 202 | 21,132
23 Jun 2022 #467
What if the kids have knives? Or at least razors? Even the thickest leather won`t last long......

Yeah, I agree. Even though it requires tons of maintenance or leather will crack.

Yes. Old cars do

My friend has been driving mid 1950s-60s Rovers for decades. They have beautiful leather seats but you have to double declutch and they need careful maintainance.

I just finished them awfully uncomfortable. I would pay extra not to have them. Thankfully I buy cheap cars that usually don't have them :)

I have seen a Dacia Duster with a leather interior and Dacia is a cheap car.

The men make up for they male imperfections with the lenght of their car bonnet. putin does this with the help of the lenght of the table.🤭

Hood. With the US army everywhere in the EU, it's time for an update. And it's color, not colour.

Yes I know, Kodak Color, but "kaptur or kapuca" and not "maska silnika" ?

My cars in last 35 years:

You go through cars like Liz Taylor went through husbands to the power of 3. :D

Bonnet is nicer. Hood is too phallic like a prepuce.

And there does seem to be a correlation between type of car and length of virile member.

Oh, understood.

Instead of vacuuming you just it in for a new one. 😂

Yes, I have no time for vaccuming, sometimes it is done by mechanics. I don't like car-wasch either.
