  4. Jokes

    How many mice does it take screw in a light bulb?    Just two but it's a mystery how they got in there in the first place.
  5. Turning left at cross intersection

    I bet there is not court decision dedicated to this situation, so in case of collision it is not really obvious how the guilt will be spread among road participants. However   They are not allowed to start moving when you (or other vehicle) are still at the crossing. Actually they are not even allowed to start moving if there is no free room for them after the crossing (this rule is often violated, though), so that the crossing should not be blocked.    However, this being Berlin and drivers have very loose approach to safety, I advice you to do whatever you think is safe for you.
  6.  @kiplette, sorry I was up late writing and was not so clear, what I meant about the after-school activities was the kid has sports in a Verein about 3 days a week.   There are AGs as you suggest, but how to convince a preteen chess or ballet are more interesting than the path of least resistance (Woozle Goozle, Minecraft, Whatsapp, Super Mario Kart etc.) is the next question.

  9. All-time favorite movies

    Just about to watch another favourite - American Graffiti  
  10. Presents for a German christening

    Sending a card with money is totally okay. Still, for a baptism I find a gift with the child's engraved name, as already suggested, particularly appropriate. It doesn't have to be costly. There are for example (non-silver) children's cutlery sets, e.g. by Zwilling, which you can have engraved.
  11. Should we return to the US?

    I just wanted to add something here, which has been touched upon in a couple of posts, but it merits more consideration especially since the OP said she was experiencing some fear and anxiety about returning to the United States. When you are an expat it is all to easy to idealize your home country, especially if you haven't lived there in a while. When you go back to visit everything is wonderful, all your friends, family, etc. are glad to have you around, etc. Your home country may or may not be better in terms of standard of living, etc. but once you have been an expat for a certain time period - let's say five years or more but that can vary from one person to another, it's entirely possible that you won't ever again feel quite at home in your own country. The country has changed and you've changed. I lived in Europe for seven years when I was in my twenties. I finished school, got married and got a job in Paris. My marriage was not good, the job wasn't either, and I persuaded myself that all my problems would be resolved if I moved back to the States. America started to seem like the promised land to me. I moved back and regretted it immediately. I really felt like a stranger in my own country. This feeling diminished with time, but deep down I missed Europe.  My years in Europe had changed me in many ways and I no longer felt 100% "American." Although I fit in outwardly, had a career, bought a house, etc., I always felt that pull towards Europe, which had been my home during my formative years.  I guess what I am trying to say is that it can be very hard to "go home" although many do so successfully. Be prepared for the possibility that if you go back you may experience reverse culture shock which is very, very disconcerting. Culture shock in a foreign country is expected but it can be an odd feeling to experience it in your native country. There is no right or wrong decision here - everyone has to follow their gut, but just be careful of rose colored nostalgia - it can be deceptive.Best of luck !

  13. Only in America...

      as I recall she has already been 100% outed on that one.  Unless you're suggesting she really IS native american?
  14. How to access BBC iPlayer from Germany

    I use a Hoxx VPN free account, still working for me, didn't even get asked if I have a licence today...   Just Google Hoxx VPN - there are links for Firefox & Chrome add-ons
  15. Question for contact lens wearers...

    I don't know anything about "soft" lenses that are custom made - I thought the options went pretty much from monthlies to gas permeables but indeed, my eyes are "simple" so never looked into all that!   for the gritty feeling, I found a HUGE difference when I switched from an all purpose cleaner to a peroxide based cleaner.  truly a 200% improvement in comfort.  I still have to take them out some days to for a rubby-cleaning with multipurpose stuff, but I am truly comfortable with them now for long stretches after switching to peroxide solution (a la easy-sept or similar).  Using MP solution for overnight cleaning, I often could not last more than a few hours before the scratchy feeling started.   sometimes the material used for the lens is a factor as well.  I do very well with b&l and coopervision lenses, but my goodness, the other brands I;ve tried were pure hell.  Why?  no one knows.  but they were very very irritating to my eyes.   good luck!
  16. Well, I would rather ask: have you read Stephen King books? Books about zombie apocalypse? They are also not compatible with rule of law. Burn them!   The same logic: somehow many people, not only MikeMelga, believe that terrorists read books. LOL!   Does ISIS publish books to brainwash people? No! They publish Youtube videos and short hysterical texts in social media. Basically, the same mechanism as Breitbart, Alex Jones and other conspiracy nutjobs. They only difference between ISIS and Alex Jones is that the latter does not preach violence.   Terrorists do not read books! They do not go to the library.
  17. ah, fair enough.  I'm near Dornbusch. 
  18. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Tap - Rippenprellung is just nasty ... it usually takes 6-8 weeks of bad sleep, delicate coughing and almost no good laughing (the 3+ times I've had it) to go away but it does fade.  I've not found much of anything that makes it better and you may even have some clicking (kind of like costochondritis) as it all heals.  Hope you heal fast.   Flummoxed?  The band that I've bought tickets to see in November has so far changed the venue 3 times - larger (local), even larger (farther away), and now tiny (great venue but annoying to get to) ... I wonder just how long I should wait before asking for new tickets / a refund or at least where the heck I should show up.

  21. How is family expat life in Heidelberg?

    Hey @AlexCLE --  How has your integration in Stuttgart been? Did everything work as well as you had hoped to? You managed to find housing and schooling, which is time consuming and stressful!  How did that work out? How was their first (half) year in school/Kindergarten?
  22. Dancing Salsa & Language Exchange?

    Hello there,   I'm (40 years-old German, living in Hamburg for about 8 years) looking for a Salsa dancing partner - and a language exchange partner as well.   If there is any male native English speaker out there who'd like to go out for a dance and to speak a bit German and English, I'd be happy if you contact me. :-)   Best wishes Katharina

  25. How to pay a parking ticket in Munich

    Could you post a photo of the parking ticket?  If the size of the photo doesn't fit on Toytown, upload it to TinyPic and then post the link to it here.   Why? Because there are 2 different entities giving parking tickets in Munich, the city and the police, and they have different bank account details (into which you have to transfer the fee). If we see the ticket (also its reverse side!), we can tell you into which bank account you have to transfer the money.
