  1. What made you laugh today?

    Walking by the penitentiary the other day I see this dwarf in prison garb crawling down the wall.  I stare over at him and he sneers at me back.  Well, I said to myself, that's a little condescending.   
  2. Spouse gift tax

      Is your wife also mentioned in your mother's will as an equal recipient, or only you?   Because if it's only you, then you'd have to pay tax on the amount above €400,000, something like 7 percent I think.  This thread is crying out for a Panda.
  3. Spouse gift tax

      It would seem to me, a lowly layperson unschooled in the ways of taxation and such, that half of that amount is yours tax-free, since the Freibetrag from parent to child is €400,000.  Even if you gift the rest to your wife, you should still be under the €500.000 between spousal units.     Again, I don't know shit from shinola. 
  4. Older IT Workers in Germany

      This is the bargain I'm going to make.  I figure what do we have but time?  Might as well enjoy it while healthy.
  5. Older IT Workers in Germany

      Could you have gone early, say at 63, and not suffered financially for it?   I'm looking forward to going early, definitely do not want to stay until I'm nearly 67, which is what the full Rente requires me to do. 
  6. Where can I find nuts with reasonable price?

      If you know what to look for you will never again have to settle for that processed vegetable oil-infested glop the Americans call peanut butter.   If you have to stir it after first-time opening, you're on the right track.

      Actually, they rule the roost in the protein department.

    A Priest and Rabbi walk by a young boy... The Priest asks the Rabbi, "Should we fuck him?" The Rabbi replies, "Out of what?"
  9. What made you laugh today?

    A priest and a rabbi are seated together on a plane. After a while, the priest turns to the rabbi and asks, "Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?" The rabbi says, "Yes, that is still one of our beliefs." The priest then asks, "Have you ever eaten pork?" To which the rabbi replies, " Yes, on one occasion, I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich." The priest nods in understanding and goes on with his reading. A while later, the rabbi asks the priest, "Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?" The priest replies, "Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith." The rabbi then asks, "Father, have you ever fallen to the temptation of the flesh?" The priest says, "Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke with my faith." The rabbi nods understandingly. He is silent for about five minutes, and then says, "Beats a ham sandwich, doesn't it?"
  10. Curious little cars???

    How come some EVs make a kind of a humming sound, and others don't?  Can the driver turn the volume up or down?  I thought the noisemaker they put into the system was supposed to solve this problem, which has been talked about even before the first modern EVs rolled off the line.
  11. 3G in Restaurants?

  12. 3G in Restaurants?

      Oh for fuck sake, have you no sense of nuance?  Read it again. Masks are okay in some situations, and I wear them without complaint.  Wearing them outside is fine with me too, I think it's unnecessary, but as long as I don't have to, go right ahead.  
  13. BREXIT positives and negatives

    Actually, wasn't it mainly just one very creepy, stalky prat who kept popping up like a bad case of crotch rot just when you thought he'd finally slunk back into his hole for good?
  14. 3G in Restaurants?

      That all a fucking depends on where the government is telling you to wear a mask.  Crowded buses and hospitals and old folks homes, fine.  Outdoors?  That should be optional.  
  15. 3G in Restaurants?

      Could it be that the majority are fed up with restrictions and just want to lead a normal life?   Do take the time to look at these graphs from the WHO   We are way, way lower in the number of deaths since the high points between September, 2020 and May 2021.  They have since then never come close.   Since the last peak in November, 2021 there have been highs and lows, but the peaks are steadily lower.  This doesn't mean that during the winter months it will stay low, but seriously, let's stop treating it as if we had no vaccines and it's still Delta.  Compare the case chart with the death chart.  When death counts were at their peak, case counts were very low.  Now it's the reverse.  It's extremely easy it catch, but with vaccination your chance of death or even a serious stay in hospital are right now far lower.   This isn't China. A no-covid policy just doesn't work anymore.  It's manageable.
