    How is it when a Muslim gunman kills 4 at a Brussels Jewish museum it is labeled Terrorism; but when a German pilot kills himself, (along with 149 others) it is labeled "Suicide" ??

    I don't care what religion Andreas Lubitz was! When you kill 149 people, it's Terrorism!

    Will this affect anything to do with my TV tax? Or having to pay a mackler for not doing anything? Since we are on the topic of Solar eclipses, can anyone recommend a good Bank in Germany?

    This happens over and over and over at German Car rentals. Tiny scratches ignored at checkout, but they go bat shiite crazy when you return the car. ITS A SCAM!!

    Next time, I am going to take the full insurance and total their car!

    I was told (perhaps wrongly) that filing a tax return is optional. At first this sounds great, not having to file a tax return. But then I bought WISO steuer:Start and plugged in my numbers. I see that I should get about 1300!! Now I want to go back and file for previous years and get that money back as well.

    How far back can I go and file back tax returns?? How many years can I go back?

    INDEED! I use this 'Respect each others diversity' push to MY advantage!

    Show up at the office at 10:30? Screw you, Respect MY diversity!
    Drinking beer at a business lunch? Screw you, Respect MY diversity!
    Knocking off early at the office at 15:30, because too many beers at lunch? Screw you, Respect MY diversity!

    Why is the byline 'Mainz'? Doesn't NBC News know the difference between Mainz and Muenchen?
