  1. I'm still laughing at the pepper on the label with "serving suggestion" next to it.   (which it doesn't say on the German version of the same product by the same brand btw - would be false advertising after all...)   In case anyone wonders Kania is one of the no-name brands of Fuchs Gewürze GmbH, which owns 75% of the market in Germany for spices. Other such brands of Fuchs are e.g. Le Gusto (Aldi); they also own e.g. the more upscale Kattus and Ostmann brands.
  2. Game - Wild meat restaurants

    Wikipedia claims that out of game on the German meat market: - 57% is from hunted game in Germany - 3% is from farmed game in Germany - 40% is imported from Eastern Europe or New Zealand (NZ is farmed animals only)   Depends heavily on the game though. Wild boar is barely farmed at all in Germany due to oversupply and thus low prices from hunting, Reh isn't be farmed due to extreme space requirements.   With the above 3% on the market Germany also accounts for nearly one quarter of all farmed game in the European Union. Basically, unless it says New Zealand on the sticker there's a 90-95% propability it's hunted game.
  3. Game - Wild meat restaurants

      Wild Boar or Deer you can buy at any better supermarket - Rewe, Edeka, Marktkauf etc - in particular during the season (which starts around now), otherwise refrigerated as usual. Other exotic meat only as occasional gimmicks, which is mostly elk, kangaroo, alligator, bison, buffalo. If you have access to Metro (B2B) they of course also sell the bison and buffalo that you can find in restaurants around here.   For any of the others you'll basically have to search online shops that deliver, of which there are actually plenty. Google for something like "exotisches Fleisch" - not "Wildfleisch", which is only boar and deer by default. Don't think you'll find any mountain lion outside the US though. For the Australian range - kangaroo, alligator etc - i think there's a vendor somewhere regionally, usually advertises and sells at Maimarkt every year...
  4.   Depends on how large his overdraft limit is with his bank. Let's not forget that the bank will charge him somewhere around 15% interest on that loan too. And they'll probably cancel his account or at least the overdraft itself if the overdraft persists.
  5.   Isn't Heidelberg Village the one where people couldn't move in because of a lack of doors and balconies and no permission to use it as housing from the Bauamt?
  6.   It's actually entirely wrong since they put Grade under Titel there. Titel denote honorific denomination such as Fürst, Graf - or "your majesty".   Correct would also be to split out the Herr/Frau, since that's not a Titel - or a Grad - either.   Pretty common mistake though.
  7. Bavaria publishes crime statistics for 2017

      And other than theft the Aufklärungsquote is 82% (!) which is astonishingly high and speaks volumes about social control at Bavarian schools.
  8.   Just as a note here : All German soldiers are Beamte auf Zeit unless they are Berufssoldaten. Not that it matters to the situation at hand.   Anyway, i assume the military lawyer is part of the Bundeswehrverwaltungsstelle Niederlande? If not, you may also want to contact either their main office in Brunssum or the offices in Eibergen or Eindhoven.
  9.   Single-customer Handelsvertreter are always rentenversicherungspflichtige Selbständige. Previous blanket exemptions for them were removed a while ago. The only real way around it in the scenario described is to hire on other people at minimum midijob level.   OP may also want to talk to her local IHK.
  10.   So, basically what you're saying is that you're one of those 13% Putin Puppets who try to infect the world with the virulent vitriol from your echo chambers - which only sprang into being really after your original home at Stormfront got kicked off the German internet?
  11. Fish market in Karlsruhe

    I guess "big" or "small" is a subjective matter
  12. Fish market in Karlsruhe

    Small but well-sorted. Think more the size of a traditional butcher shop. Sometimes a bit crowded with queues. Haven't been there in a a while though. The shop focuses almost entirely on fish, but also has some meat. Fresh saltwater fish mostly from Brittany.   Their main business is the B2B side, delivering to restaurants - including over 40 restaurants with a Michelin star.    
  13. Fish market in Karlsruhe

    Südfisch? They have a shop in Muggensturm for customers and otherwise sell only B2B...
  14. Joining the Bundeswehr

      Less than that. Between 1991 and 2017 among the 410,000 Bundeswehr soldiers deployed abroad during that time the rate of death was 0.027%, the rate of injury 0.322%.
  15.   The former Höllenstein - before being torn down and newly constructed - was a very, very lower-class area. Not quite a slum, but, uh... i think you about get the idea.   Have you checked Südstadt itself? Quick look on Immobilienscout shows a surprising number on the market (compared to other times), though by surprising i just mean "more than zero". The 11-13 Euro cold rent per square meter you'll find on Immobilienscout are normal for the area in case you wonder, at least for medium-class stuff.   There will be a relatively large amount of rental space coming on the market in MTV in Südstadt next year, though that'll be at Bahnstadt prices and doesn't exactly help you now.   The local paper regularly lists some family-sized places (flats and houses) in Handschuhsheim and Pfaffengrund for somewhat reasonable prices around 10 Euro per square meter. While that's at the other end of the town, if you can find something there reasonably close to a tram stop that could be an option too...
