Define respectable distance

two male visitors to a straight nightclub should sit a respectable distance apart - define! ha! -- Johntinsley 06:27, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

Far enough to not appear to be an "item". I would suggest about a metre apart. My Lithuanian friend was quite adamant on this. I am gay but he is not, and he said it still didn't make any difference. 62.249.253.222 18:09, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

Tendering large denomination banknotes

I was wondering about the accuracy of this statement: You will draw a lot of attention to yourself if you try to use one of the larger banknotes for a small purchase such as a beer Isn't it a little exaggerated? Jamboo 05:34, 20 March 2008 (EDT)

It is accurate in my experience. In a nightclub (in fact the one where men sit at arm's length from each other) I tried paying for a drink with a 200 lt note and the "hostess" showed it to two of the bouncers before proceeding into the back room to get change. This was in late 2007 when the cost of a beer was between 4 and 6 lt, depending on the venue. 62.249.253.222 18:09, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

Because there are many counterfeit banknotes in Lithuania. Especialy 100 lt.

Best/worst education system

Lithuania has one of the best educational systems in the World - that is simply not true. Lithuania's educational system is one of the worst in Europe. --78.60.47.216 18:15, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
