  1. Past Hour
  2. About the employment situation in the city

      Sorry @lisa13, @mako1 is right.   The Germans (especially those with traditional German HR Departments) expect that applicants sign their CVs, thereby confirming the accuracy of the contents.

  7. How to react if black sports stars are abused by fans

      Johng, I just hope you remember to understand with your Anglo-Saxon white skin that you've been afforded in your life experiences an immense amount of opportunities and " white privilege"   that many downtrodden, poor,  and educated people of color around the world have not, simply because of the color of their skin.     Your story about your Spanish wife is not about racism, it's about misogyny and xenophobia. Please don't continue to conflate the two terms "racism" and "xenophobia" .    Educate yourself about  "white privilege" and racism as apparently from your three examples  you don't  actually know what "racism" actually is all about. How about you start by realizing you have benefitted directly from the privilege that racism and prejudice afforded you as racism has enable your life experiences to be what it is thus far.   Your "white privilege" has protected you and even convinced you some how that your position of wealth and other privileges you hold are because your skills are superior when in actuality, racist systems have been very carefully constructed, designed, and upheld to control the false narrative that other groups are inferior which further allows you to think you've  had a racist experience and that "crappy behavior is everywhere and not restricted to white anglo-saxon males with or without beer guts".      Your  examples of racism  you say you've experienced  are actually false examples that you've socially constructed as racism because you simply don't know exactly what racism and xenophobia is.   I will extend this further to even say it's  probably because you've never directly experienced  overt or institutionalized racism.    
  8. Sounds just like my experience with men. (That and the thing about buses.) You may need to accept that you will never find a Mr or Ms Perfect Apartment.
  9. Why are you happy today?

    That sounds as good as it gets, Luke. I'm sure your dad will love it there with the nice weather and all.   Enjoy your well-deserved break.
  10. What made you smile today?

    Just watching a shifty looking geezer looking intently through the S section of the dictionary in the library, he's stopped now. I think he's up to something.
  11. German right of way laws

    Wow! I thought that would be a behaviour expected in dangerous Third World cities! Even 40 years ago in Rio, buses there basically ignored a red light as soon as it got dark.
  12. Freelancer with spouse who is a permanent employee

      Yes, of course. The KSK is not health insurance - so health insurance coverage must be in place before and during the application process (processing can take several months). And this exists with your wife via the family co-insurance (as long as the requirements are met).
  13. Any mums near Bremerhaven?

    Hi. I am an English speaking mum living in Bremerhaven. I live in the middle of Bremerhaven.

  15. blood test in Munich?

    Thanks @lisa13!!! Definitively I have to ask to my KK, since I don't have a regular GP here. Actually I never went to the doctor here in Germany.

    Donald Trump is living proof that you can be a grammar nazi, or an actual nazi, but not both.
  18. Worst jokes ever

    At last I have overcome my Dyslexia, as a result I will be cancelling my direct debits to Adopt a Toga and Shave the Children.
  19. Online videos

    Goodwood Revival 2019.  All things vintage. Cars, motorbikes and fashion. Enjoy.    
  20. Understanding Passiv when used with Modal Verbs

    The difference is whether the problem has been solved. It hasn't in statement 1: "This problem should have been solved yesterday," but it has in statement 2: "This problem had to be solved yesterday."
  21. Climate change discussion

      Thanks for that, LR. Duly noted and considered.
  22. Who is moderating Toytown?

      A suggestion for increased self-moderation.  A very good suggestion in my opinion.    
  23. How to use the ignore function

      This has been a public service reannouncement.
