  1. Refusing to pay TV license fees (Rundfunkbeitrag)

    I'm not a certified translator and it's midnight, but Uwe is a bailiff and the song goes like this:   "One, two, Uwe's coming for you Three, four, better lock your door Five, six, grab your crucifix Seven, eight, pay or else it's too late Nine, ten, never do this again"
  2. why are school trips so expensive in germany?

    I went on a school trip to Belgium, our neighbours from the South :). Another option was a domestic sailing camp or a trip to Germany, our neighbours from the East.
  3. Odd news

    No, no recorder. Paper and pencil will do for his memoires 👻.
  4. What do we need Car Friday for anyways?

        "It is related to the Feast of the Exaltation of the HolyCross, which focuses on the benefits, graces, and merits of the Cross, rather than Jesus's death."   Yesterday, it was Gründonnerstag :). What's that about? Any Catholics on TT?
  5. Tax Refund shows negative number!

    Try again. Perhaps the figures look better the second time you enter it 🤑.
  6. What do we need Car Friday for anyways?

    Make sure you don't cause any noise since it's a silent holiday 😇.
  7. Stone Brewing in Alt Mariendorf, Berlin

    InBev is Belgian/Brazilian isn't it? They bought Anheuser-Busch. It's a huge conglomerate competing with 100% Dutch Heineken, who also owns loads of German breweries. I stick to Weißbier (Weizen outside Bavaria) myself. In Bavaria you basically order a Helles or a Weißbier. I don't need a menu for that :).
  8. Silly details? It's a classic scene:    
  9. Yes, tomorrow is a silent holy public holiday, so that's why. 
  10. It's a machine gun, not a flamethrower. It fires 2000 bullets per minute. And who is Mike? Call Chuck Norris instead. Charles Bronson is dead, but boy was he angry on the neighbourhood in Death Wish I, II, III, IV,V and VI.  
  11. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Yes, football is not completely dominated by money. Reminds me a bit of Leicester City when they won the Premier League. Ajax is the first team in 14 years outside the big 5 competitions (EN, DE, ES, IT and FR) to reach the semi-finals. The last team was PSV Eindhoven :).
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Unfortunately, Swiss SRF (free TV) is showing Porto-Liverpool, but yesterday I watched young Ajax beating Juve. What a match!  Ajax has a low budget and a 19-year-old captain!!
  13. Notre Dame is on fire

    It's expected that they will reach the €1 billion threshold tonight. Amazing.   BTW- the spire that toppled over was only installed in the 19th century. It's not clear whether it will be rebuild despite the competition.
  14. Private surveillance of community property areas

    Hmm, camera on the balcony? Not needed in Germany:
