  1. Past Hour
  2. What the hell have I done to my knee?

      Trouble is they are usually slow and block the entire radweg, or at least they do here in Munich where the cycle paths are usually too narrow and where the number of cyclist on them has increased massively in the last 5 years or so!
  3. Bewohner des Weihnachtshauses erhalten Drohbrief - WELT   Only 60 000 lights though.  Killjoys.  I remember the UK Christmas lights, when they were not parallel.  One loose or broken  one, and they would all go out.  Fun trying to find it.  Ah, the old traditions.   Video from 2019. 60.000 Lichter: Das Weihnachtshaus von Delmenhorst - Bing video  
  4. All things Tesla

    For those who doubt Elon's abilities, Neuralink has just made a big announcement.  All kinds of links.  Literally.
  5. What the hell have I done to my knee?

    Fortunately I live on the edge of a small quiet town. There are a few older people here using tricycles, I saw one with two front wheels and one back wheel.   Trikes might be good in theory but they are wide and heavy.
  6. Any links?  Interesting!   I would guess that the actual wording is to do with how the law is phrased.
  7. All things Tesla

        Tesla (TSLA) gives $3,750 discount for Model 3/Y in the US this month
  8. Worst jokes ever

    Whar color does rhe face of a Snurf if someone is choking him?
  9. What the hell have I done to my knee?

    I have always cycled (no car except for rentals for over 20 years here).   Had trailer for shopping (we have 3 children).  But I had some bad stuff more recently, had to fall off a few times and I have got nervous.  And you need to be confident or you wobble and fall off.  I did not even get hurt!  Stupid I know.  But every junction I worry.   People pulling out without looking.  I used to cycle in London too, when it was truly frightening, but I was young!   Not sure how to get back into it.  Well done for doing more, not less!   Using your body is the way to go, I know.  
  10. Today
  11. Just read about some people who decorated their house with thousands of lights, they got a threatening letter. I guess someone objects to energy being wasted.   The cops are investigating the letter writer for "versuchte Noetigung". Why not just "Noetigung", I want to know!
  12. The War in Ukraine

    The craziest parts are his claims for regions they never set foot on!
  13. What the hell have I done to my knee?

    Cycling seems to be good for knees, I am cycling more since I retired.   Best to use a low (easy) gear. Best of all perhaps a low single fixed gear, if you do not have to go up and down hill much.

  15. Things to ponder

    I asked my taxi driver this morning if he was Greek because he had an " accent." He smiled and said " Iranian." He then asked me if I was American. I said no but " they have a good football team."😂 All good- natured. It is the ATTITUDE that counts.
  16. What the hell have I done to my knee?

    So knees are much better.  But the other night, getting into bed, I did the same thing again.  But instead of just thinking it would be better in the morning, I got up and walked around. Used the stairs.  Within 5 minutes it was fine.  It still clicks when I walk, but only for the first 500 m or so, then seems to start behaving better.  
  17. Worst jokes ever

    " and they think it's all over..."😂
  18. This worked.  Many thanks!   From the symptoms I had dismissed this as the problem.  I have 2 other rads that do not work because they are stuck shut.  Stupid.   Always try the simple things.  Living room now 19.  Yay.  
  19. What made you smile today?

    The best marriage proposal ever.  Especially as he finishes by saying   It was quite low key. On a small boat; just the couple, and 1 or 2 others (photographer/skipper)   He goes down on one knee, and drops the ring box overboard. Without hesitation he's in the water after it. Comes back up soaking wet, gets back into position, and she can barely squeak yes between gasps of laughter.   I really hope they stay together. In 40 years their grandchildren will be boasting about their epic proposal.
  20. The War in Ukraine

    Crazy man, Putin, is now demanding that the West recognises his illegal Ukrainian annexations as being Russian  
  21. Tabletennis in Munich

    Schelling Salon: Sports4You (scroll down to Tischtennis): Sport Insel:   *********************************************************************************************************   Or you could join a Verein (sports association). For example, "SG Siemens München Ost", which would cost you 100€ + 10€ for table tennis = 110€ per year (this has to be paid every year, unless you leave that association, so it is a revolving contract): You can also get a "test membership" of 5€ per day per person, see in the above PDF: "ein Probetraining kann durch Lösen einer Karte für eine Tagesmitgliedschaft zu 5,00 € erfolgen". You book the table here: Photos of their table tennis room:  
  22. All things Tesla

    1MWh. Remember that most of US  trade routes are in areas with lots of sunshine. It's clear it will be cheaper to produce it and store it than to buy it from grid in most places. If the warehouse rooftop is the limiting factor, they can still general a couple of MWh per day in the winter.  
  23. All things Tesla

      wow that's pretty cool the music and lights kind of had a similar feel to the film "the neon demon" If you like the music, check this out      
  24. Worst jokes ever

    WORLD CUP NEWS. An early bath for the Germans ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... which is Bad.
  25. Tabletennis in Munich

    Does someone know a place where I can book a Indoor Table Tennis on weekend in Muncih? We are couple of friends who would like to play TT on weekends but can't find anything which can be booked on flexible basis.
