  1. What made you laugh today?

    I've seen policemen in Paris using Roller-skates, beats the traffic. We also have Police on bikes in our town, they have caught a few unsuspecting cyclists out.
  2. What made you laugh today?

    This is just one of several occasions:   A jewellers was raided by armed guys on Pushbikes, took the Keystone Cops 2 hours to find the bikes, after 18 months I don't think they've found the perps yet.   They chased 2 black guys who had committed a mugging twice around the Market place in the town. The muggers were on foot, the KC in the car and a Police motorcycle, we watched the muggers run up Hauptstrasse and hide in a Hof, the KC couldn't find them. -  Black kids in a small town in the Pfalz, it's not like looking for them In the Southern USA or in Brixton.   We reported a guy vandalising a train we were on, went into the Police station next to the railway station, I stayed outside whilst my wife went in, she told them the guy was outside and they should come. After they'd finished eating their sandwiches and had their coffee they came out by which time I told them the guy was gone. They decided to take a wonder around the station.   The best one I think was the Police motorcyclist riding his motorcycle in the Market place during the World Cup last year, the Marketplace is a pedestrianised area. He then told a cyclist to get off the bike as it's not allowed in the Pedestrian zone. Trouble is, it is allowed after 8PM which it was whereas motor vehicles are banned full stop.

    Our local town Police AKA 'The keystone Cops'   Young lad on a Vespa scooter comes out of a side street without wearing a helmet. Police car coming towards him blasts his horn and swerves the Police car in front of the lad to block his way. The lad mounts the pavement and rides around the car. The policeman than attempts a 3 point turn and half way through it he stalls the car. By the time he's turned round, the Vespa is gone. This is just one of several incidences we've seen where the cops have been outwitted by the locals.

    Reminds me of a piece by Banksy where three native British birds gang upon a migratory bird saying something like  come here to take our seeds have you?
  5. Should I tip the Umzug workers?

    If they're anything like the ones we used from a 'reputable' company I wouldn't. There were a few things damaged because of carelessness. However, we did buy them Pizzas for lunch.
  6. Reminds me of Adolf during the last months of the war, the Brits were planning to assassinate him but then decided to leave him in place because he was doing more damage to the German war effort than if he was removed.
  7. Politics Gen XYZ

    Plus Boris's domestic last night and the fact she was said to say something like "get off me" doesn't bode well for the jolly affable chap. Everyone has domestics but not everyone gets told to get off by their partner and tries to portray a funny affable image.   https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-48721211
  8. Scum of the Day

    More Scum, same areas of Yorkshire as the last lot, we won't know for sure their cultural backgrounds but don't hold your breath.   https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leeds-48705621
  9. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

    Think you've missed the subtle sense of humour.
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    When the Tories won a GE I always felt insecure, going back to '79 that is and that was based on previous incidents such as the 3 day week and the miners strike of the '70's. Thatcher did nothing to make me feel secure, dole queues just grew, communities were destroyed, Union laws not just revised but totally obliterated to ensure that employees had very little protection. Then Labour won in '97 and straight away pumped cash into the NHS, introduced the minimum wage and increased the protection for employees. I felt I could stop worrying and just start making the most of things.  Then we had Dave the Comedian and Gideon and finally this Brexit fiasco. Unfortunately with Corbyn in charge of Labour, I don't feel secure if Labour win, I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place and the only peace of mind I have is that I live here not in the UK. However, my pensions are in the UK so they can still stitch me up and many like me.
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    So Javid is out of the leadership contest leaving Johnson, Gove and Hunt. Tough choice deciding which one is the biggest wanker.
  12. Brexit: The fallout

    Don't forget Boris said once Fuck Manufacturing. He had a meeting with business leaders in the CBI earlier this week and their feeling was he wasn't really believing what he was saying.   https://www.bbc.com/news/business-48680303?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.com/news/business&link_location=live-reporting-correspondent
  13. What made you cry today?

    Isn't always so?, look a t the case a few years ago, successful businessman kills wife, daughter and all the animals because his business was failing and couldn't face up to it.   https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2009/apr/04/8   Life for some just seems a charade, got to have the material stuff that says success, got to mix in the 'right circles'. It's all just empty really.
  14. What do you do when you feel down or anxious?

      Needs someone to make a deposit first.  Thinking out loud - An Elephant will make a massive deposit

    So if you swallow, you're less likely to be depressed?
