  1. Streaming Laws in 2019

    He means that streaming rules are very strict in German ( even for a first offence), although a lot of people still do it quiet safely with a VPN, un-like the UK, where I believe you get a series of warning letters before they do you.
  2. Strange things that happened to you

    ME: Ahh.. Very passable, this, very passable. Graham Chapman: Nothing like a good glass of Chateau de Chassilier wine, ay Gessiah? Terry Jones: You're right there Obediah. Eric Idle: Who'd a thought thirty years ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Chateau de Chassilier wine? ME: Aye. In them days, we'd a' been glad to have the price of a cup o' tea. GC: A cup ' COLD tea. EI: Without milk or sugar. TJ: OR tea! ME: In a filthy, cracked cup. EI: We never used to have a cup. We used to have to drink out of a rolled up newspaper. GC: The best WE could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth. TJ: But you know, we were happy in those days, though we were poor. ME: Aye. BECAUSE we were poor. My old Dad used to say to me, 'Money doesn't buy you happiness.' EI: 'E was right. I was happier then and I had NOTHIN'. We used to live in this tiiiny old house, with greaaaaat big holes in the roof. GC: House? You were lucky to have a HOUSE! We used to live in one room, all hundred and twenty-six of us, no furniture. Half the floor was missing; we were all huddled together in one corner for fear of FALLING! TJ: You were lucky to have a ROOM! *We* used to have to live in a corridor! ME: Ohhhh we used to DREAM of livin' in a corridor! Woulda' been a palace to us. We used to live in an old water tank on a rubbish tip. We got woken up every morning by having a load of rotting fish dumped all over us! House!? Hmph. EI: Well when I say 'house' it was only a hole in the ground covered by a piece of tarpolin, but it was a house to US. GC: We were evicted from *our* hole in the ground; we had to go and live in a lake! TJ: You were lucky to have a LAKE! There were a hundred and sixty of us living in a small shoebox in the middle of the road. MP: Cardboard box? TJ: Aye. ME: You were lucky. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six o'clock in the morning, clean the bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down mill for fourteen hours a day week in-week out. When we got home, our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt! GC: Luxury. We used to have to get out of the lake at three o'clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a handful of hot gravel, go to work at the mill every day for tuppence a month, come home, and Dad would beat us around the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were LUCKY! TJ: Well we had it tough. We used to have to get up out of the shoebox at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with our tongues. We had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when we got home, our Dad would slice us in two with a bread knife. EI: Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, (pause for laughter), drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing 'Hallelujah.' ME: But you try and tell the young people today that... and they won't believe ya'. ALL: Nope, nope..

  4.   Thats always the tricky bit to investing, decieding which shares are going to go up an which shares are going to go down -  if you get to know any  garented wins .then please let us know.   As a general rule, always buy shares at the bottom price and sell them at the top, that way you can never lose money  
  5. youngtimers, modified ,British MOT

      As I tried to say, its always better to try and follow the rules, sa I almost always do, but - I have known several people who have not and nothing bad has come to them
  6. youngtimers, modified ,British MOT

    A know several people who run a car here on UK plates, UK insurance and go back to the UK to get a MOT.   It all seems to work just fine, one friend, had an accident on the A9 and the UK insurance did pay out, he got no hassle from the German police. Another friend got caught by the police in a road traffic incidence, got a lot of hassle by the police to re-register their car here, but in the end the police could not force him to do it,   However I heard you must re-register your UK car here within 1 year of living here, but nobody cares   I wpould go and talk to the TUV about how you register and non-standard car here
  7. E-car tips

    its difficult to compare things, so make it simple for me   When you pay for the electricity, how much does it cost to go from say 50km range left to 500 km range ?
  8. E-car tips

        I thought unlimited super charge for free was over, it was only on early model S or X cars - Most if not all Model 3 cars on autoscout have are new or registered in March - so I guess does not allpy. I thought Model 3 was supposed to be 35000$, which about 30000 euro, list price of the Tesla cheapest version is 44000 euro, which is 10k above the average car price for Germany. Do not get me wrong, ist not a lot for a performance  car. ( 0-to 100 kph is 5.5 sec.   How does the in car Navigation and permanent internet connection work, do you need separate contract for that connection, how much does that cost ?   Anyone know how the "destination charging work in Europe", well there is a designation charger less than 300 meters from where I live  - In USA it says its free to use Designation charger - What's the position in Europe ? - I mean if I got one, could I park it there for a couple of hours  and get free  electrical power ??? or am I locked out because its so close to me ?    
  9. E-car tips

    Anyone know why buying a new Tesla 3 from Tesla, costs less than a used Tesla on autoscout24, with some Km's on it ? should ent be the other way around !   https://www.tesla.com/de_DE/model3/design#battery   https://www.autoscout24.de/lst/tesla/model-3?sort=standard&desc=0&ustate=N%2CU&cy=D&atype=C    
  10. TV channels reset all of a sudden

    FTA means "Free to air".   Which came in to common use during the satellite days for TV watching, that you did not have to pay for specifically. Channels like SKY sports that would ne non-FTA as you pay for them, while channels Like SKY news would be FTA as you do not pay anything to watch them.   Obviously any non-pay channel you get over the cable does not come "over the air"  but can still be called FTA as you do not pay for them.    Well I mean everyone pays for the TV license anyway !!   Check out the other threads on picking up TV over the internet, to get overseas channels like the BBC, for a very low cost and they will not keep changing things.     
  11. not only health insurance but also does it cover your beer drinking costs, but maybe you do not have to factor that in as your not living in Bavaria  
  12. BEKO DCU 7330 Kondenstrockner Dryer

    try it in the Electrical section, more people might want it there 
  13. All Boeing 737 MAX Aircraft Grounded

      I am no expert but I would say, that putting a system onto an airplane that the pilot cannot override and drives the aeroplane into the ground killing serval hundred people - Is a serious design floor  
  14.   While your point makes sense, its just not practical.   If you tell a mother, that her child should only have one child of less because of climate change issues, they would probably cut your throat, than agree with you.   Seems to me, most people men and women, come together in some form of relationship to have children, its one of the most basic human instincts - a rational argument is hardly going to change that.   In general, most western country's have  a much slower birth rate than in ( for example ) Africa - where the population  is growing all the time. I see many adverts, showing African kids drinking water that's so polluted that makes then sick, then they ask for cash to dig a new well so the kids can drink clean water and survive - which keeps people alive and to a better standard of life - who is not going to agree to this ?.  But then the population of the earth gets bigger and bigger.   I think because of basic human instincts,  we will carry on the way we are, and the that there will be a hard correction at some point in future - where a lot of people will die and that's sad, but sadly un avoidable.   And yes, I will still eat meat and fly and pollute just as much as everybody else does            
  15. yeah well, I think a lot of people may die over climate change, near the sea etc, but I would imagine that some place will still be a live, Northern Canada, Northern Europe/asia etc - enough will survive that the race will continue.   However, drivin home yesterday, with an indicated  outside temperature of 33 degs, yes I did put the A/C on - just adding my bit to climate change.
