  1. What made you laugh today?

    Flying tankers....   Ah, Good old British weather !!  
  2. Relocating nearby to Munich

    What happens when you retire? Rent will be the same for another 30yrs until you pop your clogs...   Planned well, a property purchase will be paid off by then.   Still need savings to pay for repairs, don't forget!
  3. What made you smile today?

      Don't tell everyone!   Those who can't take a joke get so, so riled when you point it out...   BTW You can also get https://www.the-postillon.com  Most articles are months out of date but in English.

  5. Conspiracy theorists

    Anything can happen today:   Today is COUNTDOWN Day....   4.3.21   Stay at home in bed, under the covers. Don't open the doors. and whatever happens : stay safe !!     This is a public information conspiracy theory.
  6. Speeding ticket, letter without a fine amount?

        sourced from the automobile club in Germany...  ADAC   So according to the ADAC and assuming you received two separate misdemeanors,  they'll  each  be gone in 2.5 yrs.  
  7. To all German shopkeepers: The phrase to use is  "I've never seen one of those / we don't sell that"     NOT   "That doesn't exist"     It is too easy for the customer to pull such a difficult to describe item out of the bag and make you look foolish.   Ask that sailor; he does it all the time 😉
  8. Winsim / Drillisch offer a contract with a1 month cancellation period.   So does O2...but here it needs to be specified explicitly and also paid for. 
  9. Is anybody cutting their own hair?

        Solution :  Change your undies afterwards... Or at least daily. What if there was a bus accident ?
  10. computer printer - which to buy?

    Well,  this piece of string is green and 8cm here is one that is blue and 42cm finally this piece is white, double plaited and 165cm...   So many variables - this may narrow it down for you :  https://www.officedepot.com/cm/buying-guide/printer-buying-guide  
  11. What made you laugh today?

    Came into the same harbour in 2019,  just a few days after this happened...   We didn't scratch anything though, 😉              
  12. What made you smile today?

    Oh, and I scribble the bay and floor number on tickets from Multi Storey car parks (ever since I "lost" the car - again)
  13. What made you smile today?

    I have an App on my dumbfone which not only shows the charge state of the wife's E-auto, it also shows where it's parked.   I suppose most new cars have this if the car has a SIM card for emergencies.   Flummoxed her when  I showed her (We've no secrets)
  14. What made you smile today?

      Well, thanks for the compliment    I did once get into the wrong car and wonder who put a blanket on the seat. The owner was very nice about it once he realised that I'd parked one lane away in the car park.    We'd both approached our identical make/mode/colour cars at the same time and the remotes had unlocked the doors.   It's just that as I came from the side, I didn't see the reg.nr.
  15. What are you watching right now?

    What's this ? Deutsche Telekom have put "Roadkill"  in their Mediathek and  actually enabled the language option. It is available in English!!!   Should have been my flummox of the day.... Saw the first two episodes last night.  Nice and complicated political thriller with lots of plot twists.     I have almost given up on DT. Even if their own program guide says "twin language option" / Zweikanalton, it very seldom is... grrrr
