There are bad vacations. Then there's what happened to Chinese tourist "Mr L."
Because after coming to Europe for holiday, the reportedly well-dressed man accidentally wound up spending nearly two weeks in a German refugee camp, where he was given the proverbial three hots and a cot, but no access to anyone who spoke Mandarin. The big problem, according to an official who spoke to NBC News, is that "Germany is unfortunately an extremely bureaucratic country."
Who knew Germans are sticklers for rules? Here's what else happened this week:
- On CorvetteForum, even the most minor detail about Corvette ownership can be a point of contention, including how you close the door. For details, see this dramatic reenactment put together by the site's editors.
- The mechanical and electrical gremlins of Jaguars have long been known to drive many members of JaguarForums crazy. Now thanks to a company in the United Kingdom, they can also drive fans to their graves.
- One of the few cars FordTrucks members care about is the Blue Oval's GT. And the Le Mans-winning racer has some wondering if the company could pull off something even cooler: a high-performance Bronco.
- Regular readers might remember the story of the MBWorld member who bought a salvage title S-Class and tried to rebuild it with nothing but a rubber mallet and a whole lot of heart. Here's the depressing conclusion.
- Generally, if some dude in a pickup truck decides to drive over a bunch of bikers, you'd expect the police to charge him with something. But not in Aurora, Illinois. As you can imagine, the HDForums crowd is pretty pissed.
