This list examines the first countries to have banned cell phone usage while driving. When using a hand-held cell phone, drivers remove one hand from the steering wheel to answer their phones. They also take their eyes off the road to pick up and/or search for the phone and to dial a number. This all happens while the driver is operating the vehicle and watching the roads.
The ban was enacted in February of 1998. Like Isle of Man, it is another British crown dependency. It has its own legal and financial systems as well.
Policy was enacted in July of 1998. Handheld equipment is still allowed. Anyone caught will be fined 300 krons.
Japan is much stricter than most countries. It will not allow drivers to even utilize hands-free devices to speak while driving. The ban has been in place since July of 1999.
4. Isle of Man
The law was enforced in July of 2000. This island is a British dependency which is located on the Irish Sea. This law comes into place in a country where there is no national speed limit…well except in built areas.
5. Czech Republic:
Policy was enacted in January of 2001. This affects all those who utilize handheld equipment while driving.

I’ve compiled a list of top 10 phrases women repeatedly use on men. Whether it be for breakups or to get men’s attention, women have been continuously caught. Some of the phrases are metaphorical weapons used to be blunt and to the point. Raise your hand if you recognize 1 or 2.
1. We need to talk:
When there is something wrong or a lady is bothered by something, she will use this phrase to initiate a conversation. Usually this phrase could lead to a breakup or an ultimate argument.
2. There is something you should know:
Although people desire to have a relationship based on trust, this is not always the case. When a woman uses this phrase, she usually wants to admit to something. Women who have a conscious will admit their wrong and will tell their boyfriend or husband about it. Usually women use this because they have either cheated on their significant other or have done something in the past that has come back to haunt them.
Men will sometimes encounter stubbornness in women. When women are wrong, they are not always ready to admit it. They will use the phrase “Whatever” to signify that they are not interested in talking about a particular situation and would like to change topics. This phrase is a rude way to deal with an awkward situation. Women who use this term mainly show no respect to their significant other or their feelings.
Whatever could also represent a weapon women use when they are mad. At this point, they are usually done speaking to their male affectionate.
4. Do you know what day is today?
Women usually are the ones that remember the important days in their relationships. Men sometimes need to be reminded of celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions that are important to women. Women thus repeatedly use this phrase to signify that they are expecting a gift from their boyfriend or husband. This phrase usually means that the woman is annoyed and frustrated as well.
5. Five Minutes:
How many men have heard this phrase spoken by women? Women usually speak this term when they are running late and need a few more minutes. When dressing or putting on make-up, 5 minutes usually turns into an hour.
