Google is making me visit the EU

So, blogger has this obscure notice buried in the design interface, that I came across by accident.

If you're in an EU nation, would you tell me if the blogger cookie usage notice is working? Apparently I'm responsible to make sure their mechanism is working.

Or something. Whatever. 

European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent. 

As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies. 

You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities

Maybe I should send a letter to the Google people demanding the send me to Paris, so I can fulfill my responsibility to make sure their shit is working. 

As long as I'm dreaming about visiting the EU, where are you, and what are good sites to see?
