  1.   Future TT post:  "Lawyer sends me a bill after 2 years.  Do I have to pay it?"
  2. the letter's content defines provocation; not register mail.
  3. Purchase precision rotary lathe spindles/shafts in Germany

    I bet there are lathe manufacturers in germany and i bet there are lathes in germany and i bet those lathes have shafts.  i'm too lazy otherwise i'd look up the german words for lathe shaft and do a search.

    Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) bulls are taking a victory lap after the EV automaker landed inclusion on the S&P 500 Index.
  5. Every article points to a 10 year timeframe.  When did you refinance?  
  6. Ikea delivery to home

    I went to and under their delivery section I found clarity:   We temporarily changed our Home Delivery to implement social distancing and moved to contactless delivery. Our Home Delivery drivers will now deliver to your covered porch, garage or doorstep. However, in certain markets, the following products may be delivered to your room of choice: 1) Queen and King Beds; 2) Queen and King Mattresses; 3) Kitchen Appliances; 4) Sofa Frames; and 5) PAX Wardrobes.    the DE page includes:  2.3 Place of delivery: The freight forwarder delivers the goods to the apartment to a desired place of use.   I think the notion of "to your door" applies to the smaller deliveries.  
  7. Ikea delivery to home

    have you tried calling ikea and asking them?  i bet they would know.
  8. I would think refusing the job would be the same as quitting.  you wouldn't be shown the door; you'd be exiting.

      then the price he pays becomes the market price.   Germany's labor market is so archaic, it's a complete contrast to America and China.  If I were an engineer, I'd jump at Tesla or SpaceX as opposed to the excitement of working at VW on their new door handle technology.

    Tesla cars don't have a soul, they have a battery. Wasn't there a concern earlier about where Tesla would get highly qualified staff?   Mercedes plant manager joins competitor Tesla as factory's future uncertain

    I get the feeling this latest discussion will sound so quaint in a few years, months.  "So, you're going to take a computer with you?  How will you plug it in?"
  12. Cholesterol values - question for the Doctors

      TT is always my first go-to for medical advice.  I then look for legal advice.

    did i hear you say "e-ear"?
  14. google is your friend. wasn't that hard to find: Entry Registration from 8 November: From 8 November 2020 all travellers to Germany have to Register online Prior to their entry on the website , if they have stayed in a risk area within the last 10 days prior to their entry to Germany. Also they must be able to present proof of this registration when entering Germany.   New measures to combat COVID-19: According to the decision taken by the Federal and Länder Governments, from 2 November hotels and other accommodation providers may only provide overnight accommodation to people whose travel is essential. It is no longer permitted to provide overnight accommodation for tourism purposes. Visas for tourism purposes will thus only be issued in exceptional cases. The Länder are responsible for implementing this decision. Whether a specific journey is possible thus depends on the rules of the Land to which you wish to travel. More information for potential travellers can be found here (in German only).
