Remember the way things used to be, we can never get that time back,so make the best of the time you have now, Life is short!, Break a few rules! Forgive quickly! Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably ... Good times become good memories bad times become good lessons.

Admit it. You felt sorry for a thread with no Hamas, Israeli, Obama, or American Idol ties.

I don't know the sign but what you are saying is: "Did see the coercion."

And Teutone is saying: "you need to have."

What those have to do with road signage I've no idea.

It's used idiomatically here, 'müssen Sie nötig?' = do you urgently need to? ... the 'to go to the bathroom' is left unsaid, but commonly understood.

There are periodic rest stop areas with public toilets.
