    I reported it in the "error messages wanted" thread, with your compliments.

    Thanks~

    What do you mean, you don't know where in Europe to send it to? It clearly says "banana republic", so that means Italy.

    Disclaimer: I absolutely adore Italy, its cuisine, its culture and its language. But it's still a banana republic.

    My driving license doesn't expire, where's the option for that?

    Most EU licences now do. Or rather, the plastic card expires usually with 10 years - and you can't drive when your lovely plastic card is expired...

    I've still got the old paper never expiring type. If you need a replacement (lost/stolen) you get a new plastic one *with* an expiration. Folks of the generation of my parents have a "drive it all" type where they were granted all vehicle types in one go. Mostly because the types where invented after the license was granted.
  • thegoryone (disco) in reply to rob

    Definitely 10 years in the UK. Looking at mine now. I've only got 2 years left before I get a new one.

  • pallarim (disco) in reply to Westie

    A bit older plastic driver licences in Finland expire in 50 years, but the law has changed since that. Now the new licences expire in 2-15 years depending on the license class.

    Next time I need to renew my license is 2054.

  • accalia (disco) in reply to aliceif

    added to the list. will appear in GIT and on the running instance of sockbot today.

  • Westie (disco) in reply to Luhmann

    I'm jealous of you.

  • David_Green (disco)

    In theory in Arizona you can go 49 years without renewing your license (they stay valid until you're 65 and you can get one at 16).

  • Ino_Bertelsen (disco)

    I got a Greenlandic driver licens last year and it expires in 2050.... My first question on the teory question was "Which side of the road do u drive in" Next question "When u turn left or right... which side of the road should u position urself in"

    Was really wondering at the time if it was some kind of trick question :smiley:

    Oh well.. i got 10 km road to drive on and i cant drive faster than 60 km/t on any of em There is more cars than road here

    Who thought *that* was a good idea?

    I haven't had to renew my license in Texas yet, but in Michigan the only requirements for renewing are giving the state money and proving that you can still see straight. There is a written test given every other time, but they will renew the license even if you fail the test. As far as I can tell, the only benefit of having licenses expire is making sure the picture gets updated. And monies for the state.

    Deleted own pointless rant on how "t" can be redefined ... still funny though. km/t ... hiehie

  • tharpa (disco) in reply to antiquarian

    It is the same in Maryland, except there is no written test for renewals. I was not aware that it was different in some other states.

  • accalia (disco) in reply to tharpa

    Maine is: give me money and can you still see the 'E' at the top of that eye chart? what does the first row of the eye chart read? is it 'E'? now about that money you have to give me?

    unless you are over 60 in which case you have to take the actual eye exam and the first renewal after 60 you need to retake the written test (although if you get the right teller they'll waive that)

  • Ino_Bertelsen (disco) in reply to DonaldK

    Was actually expecting to get some kind of reaction on that one :stuck_out_tongue:

    But as you said, just the plastic card. It's usually enough to visit your DMV equivalent with a paper to get another one - even if you passed your exams under Stalin, and now can barely lift a foot.

    At least my country has ID cards separate from driving licenses. Whoever thought that's a good idea...

    That ain't theory, boy. I don't have to get a new driver's license until 2049.

    All I have to do (Ireland) is give them the money and let them take a new photo, because I needed glasses when I got my first one at 17. Don't have to prove I can actually still see with glasses again until I'm 70.

    What's most worrying about that is there's still people who got given a licence without any tests at all during a huge backlog about 30 years ago that are well under 70 and even then it's usually just a medical required.

    I just used that "release to inbox" feature yesterday. Strange that somebody would think that would send it back to quarantined.

    "I'm kind of afraid and yet curious to see what would happen if I attempted to convert 1 AUD into USD," writes John.

    It's simple, John: you will GET 2.8e+300 (or several billion times more or less) for 1 USD. Or what PayPal promises. Did you do this exchange? Or at least notarially certified the screenshot you sent?

    Actually, according to the screen cap, John would owe PayPal that amount in USD. The negative sign is important. I'd advise him to not do the exchange.

    But that means I can exchange my -2.8e+300 dollars for 1 AUD (give or take a few googols in spreads).

    We have photo IDs here in the States. Since they're pretty cheap, I got one as a backup for my driver's license, since I only have so many gray hairs as of yet.

  • Russell_Judge (disco) in reply to Ino_Bertelsen

    Well, then. I guess it would make sense to ask for an expiration date 60 years from now--if U HAUL did business in Greenland, Iceland, or the EU.

  • evandentremont (disco)

    My last name actually crashes UHaul's in store systems.

    d'Entremont.

    I've called their offices a few times to explain what string escaping is. They don't listen.

    Now if they're being a pain, I don't bother warning them.

    you take objection to the fact i said we should switch to polymer bank notes and not my suggestion that all of DC is full of inbred morons?

    .... interesting....

  • chubertdev (disco) in reply to accalia

    "suggestion"?

  • accalia (disco) in reply to chubertdev

    accusation then?

    and to be clear i mean everyone not just one party or the other.

    I'm listening to a podcast talking about that right now. Well, making fun of it. I even understand a few of the things that they're saying.

    It's basically the same bullshit as in Congress except it sounds more intelligent because of the accent.

    Yes, because "UKIP" doesn't sound like a character on My Little Pony.
