  1. I know. I bought my first stock 6 months before the big crash in 1987 as a 16-year-old. 22,6% drop on a single day (biggest loss in Wallstreet history).   Triple ouch. I needed signatures from my parents to buy them. I think it took 2-3 years to break-even.
  2. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Well, there is no video, haha. Finally, he bored some extra holes and put new wiring in it. He called it "tricksen" (work-around). Some of his colleagues faced similar issues at other apartments and one was pretty desperate when he checked all wiring with testing equipment. The building is from 1905.   Other workers were swearing before in my rental apartment with the installation of a new toilet tank and water tap in the kitchen. They always need more time than planned. I let my landlord deal with the organisation of workers and issues. I learned that I would never buy Altbau.   Now, she informed me that she wants to attach a balcony.    Go wrong it will.
  3. Dutch market maker Flow Traders are up 12% the last 10 days.
  4. Coronavirus

    A lot of medicine is produced in China and India, but recently some Health Ministers in Europe stated that another hub should be established in Europe to be less dependant on Asia.
  5. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Today, an electrician and apprentice installed a new intercom system in my Altbau apartment. It took 3 hours instead of the planned 1 hour job. He was swearing a lot. I asked him what in Gods name are all these cables behind the doorbell. He didn't know.  
  6. Doesn't Sweden offer free child care? In Germany it can cost you a lot. 
  7. address registration

    Employers don't cover that. I have some colleagues on a long project assignment in one particular city and then we get a furnished apartment since this is cheaper than hotels. In other projects you typically have a hotel from Monday to Thursday (Fridays home-office and laundry day).
  8. address registration

    Add extra costs for washing, ironing, eating out, etc.
  9. Coronavirus

    According to RAI (Italian state television) number of deaths is now 11 with 322 people infected (3,4% death rate).
  10. Germany the most innovative nation?

    Ah, but then the ONE must have been important, haha.

    The Netherlands invents new type of tulips.....every year. Eat that 🌷.
  12. Job Hunt in Munich

    If you're looking for a job for 2-3 months, then this is still not long. Hang in there.
  13. My tip of the day is to go to Internationale Presse at Hbf (main hall) where they sell both British tabloids and real newspapers. French as well, even Dutch.
  14. Brexit: The fallout

    London gastronomy heavily relies on unskilled foreign workers waiting tables and doing dishes since British workers are not interested in that, so what will happen? Shut it down?
