  1. What are you listening to right now?

    Black 47!
  2. Upper Respiratory Virus Attacks Ears

    This is definitely very common, and not only in Germany.   Some parts of Germany, like Frankfurt, have crappy, wet climates and a lot of population moving and changing, so they're ideal for virus and bacteria transmission.   It's not magic though, I don't think that evil winds are the main cause.
  3. Questions you have been afraid to ask... in case you look stupid

      Amber Sand is a sci-fi / fantasy location name.
  4.   I guess they had a bad experience one time and extrapolated from that to ALL healthcare (not sure why it should seem like only men, but maybe I don't wanna know details!!!)

      Wait... what? In the field?! Which field?
  12. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      Hi @bristolfan - that's my situation exactly and I got my Germanity this Jan. Go for it.   I see you're in FFM, great. They're very efficient and friendly, treat them well and you'll be fine.   If you fancy a beer and a chat in town sometime send me a PM.
  13. What's got you flummoxed today?

      So that will be two stars now then?   ;-)   Someone wasting time trying to force you into changing some minor, supposedly negative, thing, using hugely disproportionate means, instead of just doing a few little positives that would make everything better. Ah, welcome to Germany.
