  1. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    Tesla is now 18٪  cheaper than when MM made the last comment 😄
  2. The War in Ukraine

      Nobody wants their country to be turned to rubble, but some things are worth fighting for. Nazi ideology is not one, so your comparison is worthless.   Nobody is going to argue that Nazi Germany should have kept fighting.
  3. Finding an apartment in Leipzig

    Gohlis and Eutritzsch are both fairly quiet.
  4. Elderly Welfare Recipient Sanctioned for Gift

      It makes sense to an extent but if applied across the board, I think it would drive up wages and prices.   If the bakery worker now has to work 10 hours a week to get 1000 euro, then he or she might do that; reduced supply of labour means cost of labour goes up so the price of bread goes up.   And because everybody has a guaranteed basic income, they can buy more bread or nice cakes anyway ‐ meaning demand goes up, so price also goes up.
  5. Does wildlachs really mean "wild caught"?

      This is the right answer. Salmo salar is the nice sort of Atlantic salmon. The Oncorhyncho-whatever is Pacific salmon and not as nice at all.
  6. Zahlen, bitte!

    I usually go for lunch in restaurants in the city centre in former East Germany and I usually pay between 5.50 e.g. for a chickpea and potato curry and 9 euro e.g. for Bun Bo Nam Bo or a falafel plate.   I'm not sure how you define restaurants though; maybe these are bistros rather than restaurants i.e. usually I order at the counter and they don't have tablecloths.   I have noticed that prices in quite a few places have gone up in the New Year e.g. a nice Thai-style vegetable curry that was 5.50 last year is now 6.50.
  7.   According to the linked info contracts signed from 1st of March will have a 1 month rather than 3 month notice period and they will automatically roll over for 1 month at a time, not one year, if I understand it correctly. Insurance contracts are excluded. I am not a lawyer, and I detest working out and jogging, though I do both intermittently, but not at a gym.
  8. 3G in Restaurants?

      Yes, as they weren't sure whether Murph was a customer or a delivery of spuds 😉   I was also asked for ID this week at 5 guys at Alexanderplatz and the doorman was also walking around and reminding teenagers to put on their masks when they go ... while they were still eating! Obviously a petty bureaucrat who missed his calling as a ticket inspector on the S‐Bahn...
  9. I was on AG a good few years ago so I don't know if it's still the same but they would pay reasonable travel expenses to get one or two job interviews per month. You can do your interview in the morning and then sightseeing/shopping before getting the train back. It's also good experience for learning German, hearing different dialects etc!   I had interviews in Furth, Berlin, Karlsruhe, Frankfurt, Wurzburg and maybe a few more
