Funiculi, Funicula

Oh, wonderful world of european burocracy! The europian parliament, in its never ending wisdom, decided, that every country, every region there is on the european continent (and not to forget the british isles) should have and really needs a law about funiculars. So they went to write an european guideline and saw that this was good.

Now there are some parts on the european continent, like Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, where stupid indigens never thought they ever would need a funicular. These small minded natives do really think, it is a stupid idea to build a funicular to the huge mountains they have there. The highest risings in MeckPom reach some impressive 160 meters (that's 480 feet for you imperials out there) above sea level. These stupid indigens had to be forced by the european union (by some penalty as high as 800.000 Euro per day!) to see the inlaying goodness of having a funiculaw.

Where would we be without the deep thinking and wise decisions of the european parliament...
