  1. Blimey, you read the Guardian, too?
  2. Don´t drive in Greece, Sir Percy! The lethargic way of live changes..they speed up, overtake on bends, park anyway they want on the street (including pavements ), rarely acknowledge courtesy. The perfect place for Alpha males to show off. Highest death rates on the roads in the whole of Europe, I wager. They slow down when at work!
  3. In my experience, when they´re not busy killing each other, Americans are amongst the politest and friendliest people on Earth. And I´ve been around.
  4. Random pointless comments

    Not a good idea, can make it back from the moon!
  5. Cool stuff worth sharing

    I used to have my favourite badge.. " Humpty Dumpty was pushed "  but God knows what happened to it. I wish I´d been more careful!!!
  6. Did you ever wish you had not seen

    I remember being on a bus in Rio, Brazil, and think the bus hit a pedestrian but I don´t know if the pedestrian was killed. The bus didn´t stop. I didn´t react, either, to my eternal shame. I was 22 or so years old. But I can´t forget it.
  7. Did you ever wish you had not seen

    Tip accepted, optimista! Off for a shower! Long , hot day here!
  8. Scum of the Day Absolute dereliction of duty and no scruples.
  9. Relocating to Germany with german citizenship

    I hope it all works out for you, Sportsman!
  10. Random pointless comments

    The clap of thunder I heard at 6.15 yesterday morning was the loudest I can ever remember hearing. I jumped in the air in unrestrained shock.
  11. Random pointless comments

      " I told you I was ill."
  12. Relocating to Germany with german citizenship

    Good for you about the rooms but you still need to register the address, open a bank account and get health insurance. If you don´t apply for public health insurance within 3 months of registering, they have no legal obligation to accept you. 
  13. Odd news

    Man sees picture of his own amputated leg on a cigarette packet!
  14. What made you smile today?

    Despite your pain, Luke, a charming post, babe.  Hey! Your teddy bear! One-eyed like me?  A real teddy bear only has one eye!!!
  15. Relocating to Germany with german citizenship

    Not my area of expertise, but why not go to both places? You need a place to live and a job! But also walk into a public health insurance office eg TK, DAK and present yourself. You have to get health insured!   Please note you should tell them you are currently living off savings.
