  1. Getting a COVID test in Berlin

    "get the result within 48 hours " I always hear that getting something in Berlin within 48hrs is impossible. Cynism off... I would ask at Berlin Tegel and Schönefeld. At the Frankfurt Airport you can get tested and get the result within 12hrs. Since there are a lot of countries which demand a negativ Covid test before you enter a plane, you should be able to get a test there.    
  2. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    Time to introduce debtors' prisons again.
  3. Importing a car from another EU country to Germany

    According ntoo the article cited by Krieg, you must have plate on your car and you must have an insurance! Only the stamp may be missing.
  4. Only in America...

    Celebrating the Death of the Turkeys sounds strange for me as a foreigners. Only in America...
  5. Importing a car from another EU country to Germany

      Decide which insurance company you want to insure the car with. Ask them for an insurance of the Kurzzeitkennzeichen (if you insure it with the same company as later when you register the car, it will be cheaper or free of charge), hop on your bike and get the Kurzzeitkennzeichen, put them on the car, drive to the TÜV (be sure to have an appointment) and then register a car.  
  6.   Which is really the polite thing to do, it certainly isn't something I would press a person on. It's none of my business and if they wanted to tell me they would. I know people that would press out of curiosity and an interest to know. They don't mean anything by it but it can cause offence. Since the risk is so high you could offend people just by talking to them, I would not do it. It is not necessary today. Everyone has a smartphone. Instead of talking to people and possibly just using the wrong gender, watch youtube videos. Problem solved.  
  7. Relocating to Munich from San Francisco; looking for advice

      Not necessary, like at home they have cleaning women.
  8. Coronavirus

    Hello Hem, you should consider spending some days on the Seychelles. They only have six cases of Corona, fishermen from a Spanish Tuna fleet. Otherwise there are no cases amoungst the locals. They are very strict with immigration. You need a negative Covid test, not older then 72hrs when you get on board of the aircraft. No time lag. Many flights are over night flights, you arrive in the morning and leave late in the evening. However, not suited for Ibiza party animals.
  9. Sprachrassismus at Work

    " Does it have to do with the working environment and the educational level of the people? (I work at the airport). " No, it's the place you are working..Berlin. Berliner are known for their aggressive language.
  10. What about getting a "Zollkennzeichen"? It is meant for car that wil be exported. You can get for 1 year max. You have to pay tax and insurance for its duration. It is possible to register the car again in Germany. However, I don't know, how much hassle is involved with that option.
  11. The real estate market doesn't make sense to me.

    Just heard in the news that buying houses and appartments is often done to launder money. So, basically, people who want to do this don't care whether the m² costs 5000 or 10000€   " Buy a run down resale drop a 100 grand into renos and you're still ahead by at least a 100 grand if not more " ..and you still habe an old building. You would hear cjildren jumping on top of you or the neighbours heaving sex on the other side of the wall.
  12. Coronavirus

    Here ist a list of the countries where the infected people came from: Deutschland 8607 Kosovo 1096 Türkei 501 Kroatien 260 Serbien 196 Bulgarien 166 Bosnien und Herzegowina 156 Rumänien 113 Polen 112 Spanien 107 Mazedonien 92 Albanien 86 Niederlande 50 Österreich 44 Frankreich 43 Ukraine 43 Rest 448   I don't think many people spent their holidays in Kosovo (and some other east European countries). I think most of the people got infected because they visited their families!  
  13. Is this How Health Treatment Works in Germany?

    Just google "orthopäde chemnitz" and call one. Not so difficult.
  14. Only in America... Chicago Police Arrest More Than 100 People After Looting Batters Downtown   The city briefly raised most of the bridges (Was already invented in medieval times, see the castles. Will city centers in future be encircled by water?)to the main shopping and business district. "Then early Monday morning, hundreds of people, spurred by a police shooting and by calls on social media to take action in the gleaming heart of the city, converged on the Magnificent Mile, Chicago’s most famous shopping district. They broke windows, looted stores and clashed with the police, a chaotic and confusing scene that prompted city officials to briefly raise bridges downtown and halt nearby public transit to stem the unrest. Two people were shot and at least 13 police officers were injured." "He said that the chaos that had unfolded downtown overnight had grown out of a shooting that took place on the South Side on Sunday afternoon, when police officers and a man shot at one another in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. "Around 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, officers were called to investigate reports of a man with a gun, the department said. Officers confronted a 20-year-old man in an alley; he fled and then opened fire, the department said in a statement. “Officers then discharged their firearms, striking the offender,” the statement said."   “I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago. “That makes sure that person has clothes.” “That is reparations,” Atkins continued. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.” You gotta fight for your right to loot and party..    
  15. Coronavirus

     "When we looked in the setting of Covid disease, we found that people who had prior vaccinations with a variety of vaccines -- for pneumococcus, influenza, hepatitis and others -- appeared to have a lower risk of getting Covid disease,"   Yeah, I got them all, plus a vaccination against Yellow Fewer. I should be immun to Covid-19.
