  1. Risk Aversion

    I took a risk of coming to Germany. Suppose the beer wouldn't taste so good, what then :)?
  2. Why are you happy today?

    The number of cigarettes smoked by Helmut Schmidt is estimated at 40x365x80=1.168.000 .    He spent some €300.000 on cigarettes according to today's prices. Wow!
  3. Why are you happy today?

    Who was the last king of Bavaria? A. Ludwig III B. Horst Seehofer
  4. Why are you happy today?

    Did they ask how many cigarettes Helmut Schmidt smoked in his life? Tip: it's the equivalent of ca. 7 kilos of tar and he smoked 80 years.
  5. Why are you unhappy today?

    So, in order not to make mistakes, you use -chen a lot:"Heute sah ich ein Mädchen mit nettem Kleidchen, schwarzem Täschchen, rotem Jäckchen und schwarzen Stiefelchen." 👻
  6. Odd news

    OK, we grow tomatoes, paprika, champignons and peppers in greenhouses and export this worldwide, but now bananas as well: https://www.wur.nl/en/newsarticle/Sustainable-bananas-in-greenhouses-first-Dutch-bananas-harvested.htm   Coming soon to a supermarket near you!
  7. Inkasso after me though I've paid phone bill

    Do you still have a bank account number in Germany? You should be able to get your last bank statements via mail. They will not chase you across the ocean for this small amount. They will most probably write it off as doubtful debts. They make provisions for such cases.
  8. Landlord does not confirm the apartment

    It gets better around X-mas.
  9. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Normally, I stay outside and have some Glühwein and today I had a classic Flammkuchen, but now I went inside the market and was flummoxed about the high prices. I forgot the ca. €50 per kilo for Bergkäse. These hippies probably think that they charge whatever they want from rich Munich :).
  10. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Just visited Tollwood, Munich's alternative X-mas market. Buzzwords are organic, fairtrade, handmade and handpainted. Some market staff look like they were at Woodstock, definitely not from Munich. A pair of socks made in Mongolia and made from yak: €15. A very small porcelan dish from Tunesia: €5. A small wooden cheese board, made in Bavaria: €48. Hello?
  11. Traffic accident disputes advice needed

    IMO, the bus driver is at fault. If he stays in his lane, he can't hit you.
  12. What are you cooking today?

    I had something simple: veal schnitzel (on sale at Edeka for €12,90 per kilo) with boiled potatoes and green beans (hericot vert).  For a late snack I made some fresh guacamole which goes well with some taco crisps.
  13. Only in America...

    Just watched Man vs. Food: 2 kg meat on 2,5 kg spaghetti.

  15. Do you see your family less than when you first moved away?

    I need 5 minutes to get to Hauptbahnhof and then I take an ICE to the Netherlands via Düsseldorf. Usually go 3 times per year incl. 2 weeks for X-Mas. My friends come once per year. My parents far less, but my dad can't walk that much, so that's OK.
