Americans get criticized for their limited knowledge of world geography, and rightfully so. The average American, when asked to find the capitol of Europe, will point to France. This is, of course, a gross mistake. The capitol of Europe is Germany, which is located directly west of Czechoslovakia.
With my flight already confirmed, I booked an Amtrak train a few days ahead of my departure. I was dismayed to find out that my train was...a bus. There is one train line to Chicago, and it was under "unexpected" repairs. The bus was from Greyhound, which only made the situation worse. Remember in all dog races there is only one winner; Greyhound is not that dog. I had the option to take the bus to Joilet, a city approximately an hour south of Chicago, and transfer to the train there. But this was more than twice as expensive and required waiting in Joilet for an additional 2 hours.
Why pay someone $500 to punch you in the face, when you can get the same thing by paying $10 to enter a club and call the bouncer's mother a slut??
