  1. the Olympic Games in Japan

    Our 3x3 men‘s basketball team won against USA in qualification and kept them out of Tokyo. They go for a medal. The normal 5x5 teams are not good. We are good at field hockey (m+f), football (f) and handbal (f) and we defeat Germany in  the water (pool, open water, surfing, sailing) or on frozen water (speed skating, short track), haha. 
  2. the Olympic Games in Japan

    Ah, the tallest player I have seen in NBA was Manute Bol from Sudan. He was 7‘7 in (2.31m). Skinny with 91 kilos and couldn‘t run or score, but he was good at blocking shot attempts. Once he blocked 4 shots in a row: block leader ! Funny was that he played together with the smallest player in the NBA, Muggsy Bogues (5‘3 in, 1.60m). Hilarious sight. 
  3. the Olympic Games in Japan

    I saw the match: Team USA is no team yet, but this will improve soon. It‘s like a wake-up call. No worries.

    She will now finally retire in gymnastics, Oksana Chusovitina (46!!!) said: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/sport/2021/jul/23/uzbek-legend-oksana-chusovitina-olympics-gymnastics-tokyo   Great story. I saw her last appearance. All competitors were applauding. 
  5. the Olympic Games in Japan

    Was just watching the entrance of the countries where the sequence is alphabetical, but according to the Japanese fonetical alphabet. Cuba is somewhere in the back, for example. Anyway, Eswatini was introduced and the German commentator went silent. At the end he said it‘s somewhere in southern Africa. I‘m sure he quickly looked it up during his silence :). Actually, it‘s the former Swaziland.

  7. Odd news

    Talking about crime: the head of traffic police (people who didn‘t make it to the real police) in Stravopol has a golden loo: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-57914270.amp

    Good one. We have Donkervoort. They just produce a few dozen cars per year. Hand-made and very exclusive: https://www.donkervoort.com/en/
  10. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    Was just reading that the whole of Germany has some 45,000 public charging stations by the end of 2020. Tiny Netherlands already has 60,000 plus 150,000 private ones. Definitely, different agendas.

    The integration process goes faster if you’re already trinkfest 🍺.
