  1. Why are you unhappy today?

    I'm very sorry about the passing of your friend's son, fraufruit.   My mom had scleroderma and it was awful. Correction; she had CREST syndrome,  a group of 5 symptoms that includes limited scleroderma. I wouldn't wish any of it on my worst enemy. Prayers for her and her remaining son.
  2. It's BuzzFeed (American Internet media company).  And he definitely needed to call out CNN, high time someone did it.
  3. You can buy nutritional yeast (in German: Hefeflocken) at BASIC Bio supermarkets. According to their website, there are 2  BASIC Bio stores in the Frankfurt area. Other health-food/organic food stores probably sell it as well. It's good stuff! My Munich BASIC Bio store sells fresh jalapenos, depending on the time of year. I last saw them back in the summer.  Availability might be based on the local area, though.
  4. Photos of people you'd like to punch

    I'd like to do a lot more than just punch these worthless dregs of society...
  5. Post your favourite PC video

    This video is extremely snowflakey, in the true sense of the word, and as PC as it gets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7U4ajxMvl_4
  6. For me and Mr. Porky Pine, it took about 6 weeks to hear back from the Munich Standesamt that the OLG had responded. And the Standesamt submitted the "Befreiung" form to the OLG, not us personally. Your mileage on response times may vary. All the best to you!
  7. Flixbus vs. dbahn

    Thanks for posting your experience with Flix bus, divagirl_1983. Certainly didn't sound like an enjoyable ride.  
  8. What made you laugh today?

      That's what I was going to post above the cartoon.
  9. Meters on German radiators - central heating

    Because I'm in her apartment several times a week, sometimes even several times a day, to bring her mail or groceries, etc. And not because I'm spying on her.
  10. Meters on German radiators - central heating

    You could have my neighbor, who lives alone in a 120 qm apartment, and has had all 7 radiators cranked up to 9 for the past 7 days, while she walks around or sits in her apartment in a terribly thin, short-sleeved nightgown suitable for very hot summer weather. It's like a sauna in her apartment right now. 2 days ago, I gently suggested she might want to put on some more clothes, since it has gotten cold over the past few days and winter is around the corner, but she said more clothes would be a nuisance. She's old enough to remember hard times, when people didn't turn up the heating to blast and leave it like that 24/7, but instead wore more clothes inside in the colder seasons. However, she's also rich enough to afford her outrageous heating bills, while I am not. I am so thrilled at footing a portion of her bills, since only 50% of our heating is consumption-based.
  11. Is this normal police behavior for a traffic incident?

    Sounds like a case of police harassment to me, and that the female office was trying to throw her weight around. I don't believe that dents in Joe or Jane Blo's car would ever merit that much attention and scrutiny from the German police.  You would think they'd have better things to do. As hard as it is, try to blow off the bitchy police officer's remark that you could have been more cooperative (because it sounds like you were), and don't let it ruin your long weekend.
