  1.   Did you get her/his name?
  2.   Has he said anything? I hope you haven't told him about it. 
  3. You weren't driving. It's the driver's fault. Your landlord is probably looking for a way to keep your deposit or did you already get it back? Have they mentioned taking the money out of your deposit? That would be illegal.   You didn't do anything. Don't worry.   If the police get involved - do tell them that he threatened you.
  4. Parcel Forwarding Scam

  5. Looking for Einbaudecke

    Let me get this straight, you want them to lower your ceiling so they can install the lights and run the wiring in the dead space?   Seems like any decent contractor could do that. Hell, I could do the ceiling but not the electrical. Just frame it out and put up sheetrock. Drill holes in the frame for wiring.
  6. The 2020 US Presidential candidates

    I think he want to have over 20,000 people attend so he looks more popular. Not sure if he can afford to fill all the seats in such a big venue like he does in the smaller city ones.   Even if he gets a smaller venue somewhere else, he will want to pack it so no distancing and, of course, no face masks. He abhors them.
  7. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    Did you know that Tesla is considering....gulp....advertising!?   They have never done so (saving hundreds of millions) and only depend on press and word of mouth.   Some investors now want them to advertise.
  8. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

      That's interesting. I read an article yesterday that said car dealers in the U.S. are running out of cars to sell now that states are opening up due to the shutdown of the factories. 
  9. The 2020 US Presidential candidates

    Not sure who pays for the RNC. Maybe the Republican party. Trump never pays all of the bills he owes after his rallies.
  10. President Donald J. Trump

    We only know about some of the ones who got caught and verbalized their motivation -       see the cases here
  11. Coronavirus

      So that would be like Trump putting all the responsibilities for managing all their coronavirus needs on the governors?   I understand.
  12. Coronavirus

      What about ventilators?   Just asking.
  13. English boating course

      I don't know about motorboat courses but sailing courses are not holidays. There are a couple of Segelschule boats on our pier in Slovenia. They head out early in the morning and train the full day. But, if you consider living in a boat with 5 or 6 strangers, doing your own cooking and cleaning, cleaning the boat, etc. for a week or more a holiday then that is OK. A tester comes on the last day and usually 1 or 2 people fail and don't get their license.   As I said, I'm not sure what it looks like for motorboat license and you can always extend your stay in a hotel and have a real holiday after the course.   Many moons ago when Himself made his sailing license, the skipper didn't allow any alcohol on board. 
  14. The 2020 US Presidential candidates

    The stupid candidate's idea -     here   In summary, pack the venue with over 20,000 people, not masks and no distancing. Can you say Darwin?
  15. President Donald J. Trump

    Fiddling while Rome burns -     the rest
  16. What made you smile today?

    from a friend:    
  17. Police Brutality in the USA

      I have to say I don't know what to believe yet. Looks like a lot of conspiracy crap in that thread. Twitter is not a news source for me.   It's all Obama's fault anyway.
  18. Police Brutality in the USA

    I know you do but please give George a little respect. 
  19.   I wonder if the US Treasury and tax payers would be happy giving 3.33% to a German bank.  
  20. Portable air conditioning units

    Bonus with a ceiling fan over the bed - I put my laundry rack on the bed under the ceiling fan and dry clothes in 30 min. which is a fraction of the cost of running my dryer. Plus, it is out of the way.
  21. Police Brutality in the USA

      He has a name FFS. Stop calling him some black guy. 
  22. Portable air conditioning units

      Ha! I run an oscillating fan that is about 2 ft. away from me on high all night on the boat. It is actually on the bed. It blows the air from head to toe. Wunnerful! I also enjoy the white noise even though it is pretty quiet.   It's a miracle that I never got neckmonia.
  23. President Donald J. Trump

      Except when it's legal to be fully armed in said building.
  24. Portable air conditioning units

    The reviews don't look so great. It seems to me that, if these things work, everybody would have a couple.   How about a ceiling fan over your bed or are you afraid of getting neckmonia?
