  1. Barbecue at work -- Foods to bring

    Actually there are some issues with aluminium (not the Alzheimer claims that snopes debunks). Especially when the food is in direct contact with the aluminium and contains an acidic marinade (as someone would do by wrapping a marinated fish for example). Was initailly told by  my brother in law (who is a chemist) but there are plenty of sources for it :   https://sciencing.com/dangers-aluminum-foil-8314412.html   There was an issue  in Germany, 5 years ago, about Bretzels that are usually baked in aluminium trays : https://www.thelocal.de/20141205/bavaria-fears-for-health-over-aluminium-pretzels
  2. Nanaimo Bars

    I have never had Graham crackers, but reading the ingredients and the nanaimo recipe I think plain Leibniz Butterkekse would be a tad sweeter.   I would go for the wholegrain type or the Digestive Originals which should also be available in Germany
  3. Getting an Arbeitszeugnis revised

    i don't know how precise their free tool is, but copy pasting your part, gives a score of 4, and doesn't seem that bad (they obviously didn't give much effort):   https://www.arbeitszeugnisportal.de/arbeitszeugnis-analyse-automat/zeugnisanalyse/
  4. What are you listening to right now?

    Best version ever...      
  5. Dinosaur in need of a new Laptop.

      Also depends a lot on your requirements. Speaking strictly for Android (I am allergic to rotten Apples  ). - Mid Range :  Google Pixel 3a for about 400 euro - For high end OnePlus 7 Pro:  https://www.oneplus.com/de/oneplus-7pro? , best specs possible 
  6. Dinosaur in need of a new Laptop.

      Your requirements are quite minimal, it depends on on your budget. At least 256 SSD and 8GB Ram, i5 Intel should cover you. I would stay away from Acer, have a biased opinion about Asus as I am very satisfied with them  , but HP, Lenovo, Dell etc all have decent laptops with that  requirements.   Check this offer f.ex :  https://www.notebooksbilliger.de/hp+15+da1106ng   also keep an eye here :  https://www.mydealz.de/gruppe/laptop
  7. What made you cry today?

    Thank you all. He was special. Despite his looks, he was a stray we found in Greece with my wife one month before our wedding. He was here before our children, he survived against all odds a urinary infection when he was two, he came to Germany. Seems like a whole life. He made our life better and we only have great memories. Still it hurts a lot. Next pet a tortoise, a lobster or a catfish, anything that can outlive us...

    Well, it sucks...   As his namesake would say :  “Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”--- Gandalf, "The Return of the King"
  9. Game of Thrones (TV series) (Spoilers )

      He wasn't and he is not that thrilled about the final season and the decisions :  https://www.rollingstone.com/tv/tv-features/george-r-r-martin-on-the-stark-sisters-and-ending-game-of-thrones-813890/   neither is the cast:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EA7UQOYskas  
  10. Game of Thrones (TV series) (Spoilers )

      The moment she decides to go in full Beserk mode, was good. Very well expressed by Clarke as well. Also Grey worm's moment when he decides to kill the surrender and innocent out of rage and revenge, showing what war and  revenge can do to a good man, was one of the highlights.   I was pretty sure that Jon will have to kill Dany in the end (after killing Grey worm who will protect her to death), but Arya is also a good bet. I presume that Jon will still have no desire to rule, will go to the North, find Tormund and Ghost and make the spin off "The little house on the icy prairie"...   So my bet of ruling would go to Sansa, unless Tyrion survives, or they divide north and south, as they are in very good terms with another.   But honestly they have totally screwed it and expected much more after 2 years of waiting...If it wasn't final season and this was happening on season 4,5 I probably would have stopped watching.
  11. Game of Thrones (TV series) (Spoilers )

    I love GoT. But the writing so far this season has been horrible...
