  1. Why there are hardly any IMAX, 4DX & Co movies?

    Old people dont go to Imax / 4DX movies 
  2.   The problem is that Germans think the rules will stop them being killed. Just look at how many people who will walk /cycle across roads and crossing without even checking if the cars are stopped just because they have "right of way". 
  3. ADAC battery replacement

    You can also pick a battery up relatively cheap at any Baumarkt. You can also drop your old one there to get the pfand back. 
  4. Compulsory bag inspection at the grocery

      Obvious like leaving it in the trolley?...
  5. Electricity when moving

    Moving from an apartment to a house.   Do I need to tell my electricity company and am I expected to have the same contract at the new place ?   or is it possible to cancel my apartment contract (even if I still have say 6 months on the contract) and start a completely new one in the house ? 
  6. I think your health insurance should be able to help. Contact them
  7. Compulsory bag inspection at the grocery

      I don't and I don't hold it against the cashier, but I think the whole cultural thing of checking the trolley is bullshit.  Also, checking ID for alcohol is completely different, there are huge legal implications. Checking a trolley is the choice of the store. 
  8. Compulsory bag inspection at the grocery

    I still get ever so slightly annoyed when the cashier stands up to look in my completely empty trolley. 
  9. There is a Globus in Cologne that is actually really good and the closest I've seen to a UK supermarket. It's actually clean and modern with new products added often. They also have introduced the hand held scanning machine.  On the flip side, the local Real looks like something out of the 1980s soviet union, there were even rats running about in the "fresh" fruit  & veg section. When I told the staff, they couldn't care less. 
  10. Streaming Laws in 2019

    How would someone even know what you are streaming? It would mean the internet company would have to be actively monitoring your downstream and then pass this info onto the movie companies. 
  11. What is the fine for a car accident

      I'm not a lawyer but I would say that's highly unlikely.  Were you definitely in that area when the claimed incident happened? 
  12. Slow German internet

      Yes Deutsche Glasfaser are putting the new cables directly to the house from the street, free as part of their sign up offer. They said they normally they charge 750 euro for the connection. 
  13. I'm wondering why they keep pushing these e-scooters in Saturn/Mediamarkt if they are illegal to use on the street?   I've used these alot in Lisbon and they are awesome. Top speed was 25km/h
  14. Slow German internet

      Deutsche Glasfaser and Deutsche Telekom are actually 2 different companies. I think in my new area Deutsche Glasfaser will use some of the old Telekom Glasfaser lines than Telekom laid without actually activating.
