    Man caught driving with 'practically zero-visibility' in Dundee

    A man has been charged with dangerous driving after being stopped in Dundee with snow covering almost his entire front and rear windscreens.

    Police said it was "about the most extreme example of lack of preparation" that they had ever seen.

    I was reading earlier today that Swiss police will issue you with a fine if you have snow just on your roof and all windows are clear. Idea being that snow will blow off your roof and onto vehicles behind impeding their vision, or if you brake it may slide onto your windscreen impeding your own vision.


    Ouch. Yet another example of people not driving to the conditions. 6 dead and 65 injured is crazy.

    Our regional authority—which manages our healthcare system—made a very controversial decision, about five years ago, to start charging for coffee at all regional workplaces under their management. Because of public procurement rules, people ended up having to pay for garbage coffee from coffee machines. I just learned that this attempt to eliminate moral coffee hazard cost the region roughly 2.2 million EUR in administrative costs and lost time. Coffee is now free again for all employees. Still garbage, but at least it's cheaper garbage.

    My local team is sinking lately, unfortunately. It appears they forgot that in football, defending is also a thing..

    The following is of a depravity that I don't understand how people can actually do it.

    Last night I was on my last round with Bella, when I noticed that there was a cluster of police car and people on the parking lot of a building alongside my route. That's not very common, but I just continued my route, went home and went to bed. This morning after waking up I remembered and checked the local news to find out that the police had been there to rescue a baby from an underground trash container. I have literally no words for this kind of behavior. The utter lack of humanity. The child is alive and well, but whoever put it there obviously did not care at all whether or not it lived.
    Congratulations America

    Crazy story indeed.

    Just read on the news that the parents are found and arrested, both 17 years old.

    This awful story reminded me of the "baby hatches" where babies can be abandoned safely, so at least they don't die from exposure. Can't find if there are any in Amsterdam though. Glad the baby was found on time in this case.
