Here’s a comic that deserves your full attention. It’s the story about Sami (remember Sami?) as it’s supposed to be told by me only if I could draw and write this good. Click on the picture and enjoy.
Theres a nifty urban legend in Banja Luka, Republika Srpska, that the number of women in that city is much bigger than the number of male inhabitants. Apparently almost everyone in Banja Luka believes that there are at least seven women per each male citizen of Banja Luka. Of course,
Rodjen kao ratnik (Eng: Born to be a warrior) is a cult movie from the nineties. One of those “so bad it’s good” movies, to this day it remains a mystery how and why this movie was made. I would do a review, but I can’t do a better one

Austrian store manager puts up unusual sign- besides the regular “Everybody welcome” – “no Slovenians + Croatians” was added by hand. Exactly how stupid is that?
Belgrade bus driver with unprecedented skills – the guy can drive a bus full of people while solving a crossword puzzle at the same time – on his steering wheel. Luckily there was a passenger brave enough to record a video of this miracle man.
