  1. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      So, you are safe. I, on the other hand, am still waiting for my initial appointment.   ps. I like the term "disorderly Brexit". If there is one thing that "the Germans" dislike than it is disorderliness.
  2. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I think there will be three-way split between no-deal Brexiteers, some kind of (fairly close alignment) deal pragmatics, and revoke remainers. "The people" don't speak with one voice.

    This is going to be interesting. Brexit Reality TV continues.
  4. Brexit: The fallout

    We're most certainly all doomed. By the way, you forgot to mention climate change!
  5.   I would avoid N26 at any cost. You can have a look here for a start: Lawyer to sue (or legal advice) against a bank (N26). Their cyber security is in a mess, which is a problem if you brand yourself as a mobile lifestyle bank.
  6. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

    Yeah, definitely fight it but be as informed as you can be.
  7. However, Bogleheads would say "time in the market" is better than "timing the market". Some people wait for the next crash already for 5+ years and have missed the upward movement in the market in the meantime. The bottom line is, we cannot foresee the future. So estimating that we are late in the cycle might be sensible but completely wrong. Who knows? I don't.
  8. Lawyer to sue (or legal advice) against a bank (N26)

    I would avoid N26. Their cyber security is not up to scratch.   Have a look at this: Shut Up and Take My Money! The Red Pill of N26 Security
  9. All Boeing 737 MAX Aircraft Grounded

    Indeed, money cannot compensate for such a loss. If at all, it would be a better measure to "calculate" how much hardship is caused to the victim's relatives.
  10. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

    There is something like Störerhaftung, which makes the "owner" of a WLAN liable for any illegal activity happening through that WLAN.
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    So it turns out, that you most likely have to pay a fine if the authorities were to find out that you voted twice.   "Verfahren gegen di Lorenzo wegen doppelter Stimmabgabe eingestellt"   @Kommentarlos I'm not sure that the Deutschland Kurier is mainstream media. I didn't know it until now.
  12. Downloading documentation and books

    I don't know the details but I think the only thing that is not illegal is video streaming because the streaming data is not permanently stored on your computer. Given that you would download PDFs and store them permanently, I think you would engage in copyright infringement. Normally, however, you are more likely to be targeted if you redistribute copyrighted content without permission.
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    Why don't you just post some links to substantiate your comment?   In Germany as well as in the UK, they register whether you have voted or not. So, in theory they could check whether you have voted twice. On the German EU voting registration form, you have to state where you are or have been registered to vote in the UK. Of course, manual checks would be pretty time consuming and probably not worth the effort.   I wonder whether the EU election could be contested if it turns out that a significant number of EU nationals have voted twice.   By the way, if voting twice is illegal, I wonder what would happen if you were caught.
  14. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

     When did you make that appointment? How long did you have to wait for it?
  15. Brexit: The fallout

    This would be the ultimate nightmare for Tory Brexiteers. What a sweet revenge that would be. Haha.
