      Problem number one, in some areas you need a car to reach a Walmart, they are not walking distance everywhere.   Problem number two, food regulations in the USA have dodgy standards.  Cheap chicken full of hormones and chlorinated wouldn't be something you find everywhere in Europe.   GMO food seems to be everywhere over there if that's something you care.   In Germany you can buy organic produce even at Lidl and Aldi, even a Hartz4 family can afford to eat bio if they make an effort.
  2. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

      People who go through the trouble of selling their electricity to the net sell all what they produce.  Because they can sell it for more than they will have to buy for own consume.  At least people with older setups, I am not sure how it is nowadays for new installations.   P.S., I wonder how the man is going to tax me for electricity I produce for my own consume, it is off grid.   Maybe possible, but definitely not easy.

      The problem in retail is you have to check what the others are doing.  So if even if is costing you a lot but if you remove it it will deter people from coming to your shop and they will go somewhere else then they will have to suck it up.     In retail you do whatever you have to do to bring your target market to the shop.

      Taxing alcohol is stupid because you can make your own alcohol ... taxing food in restaurants is stupid because you can cook your own food ... and so on.

      Buildings with roof real estate could just be filled up with solar panels, the building (supermarket, shopping center, factories, offices, workplaces, government building, car shops, hotels, amenity parks, etc) could then use the electricity for their own consume and burn the excess as free car charging for customers and employees.   Costs of solar panel infrastructure and maintenance could be offset from taxes.  Solar panels for roofing will finally someday look like normal roofs (what Tesla has being trying and failing at for a while).   I assume it is really going to be like that because it looks pretty obvious to me.

        That's a typical Melgasm, he starts with reasonable good arguments but then he stretches the numbers to Wonderland level making the whole thing laughable.   I guess he is adding there the taxes and energy savings, but I think he is stretching it a lot.  The average car maintenance costs in Germany are around 750 EUR a year, and a new car should be on the lower side.
  7. Bought fake item on eBay - seller won't refund

    You offered a solution, so the ball is on the other side.  When a person threatens (even if it is clearly a bluff) to go to a lawyer or the police you should stop communicating and wait for whatever happens next and take it from there.    Never continue talking, discussing or arguing with someone who already threatened to go to a lawyer or the Police.

      I've seen the increasing number of posts too, but sadly I think there is not much we can do.  When they come here with the problem it is already too late and you are correct, in most cases going to a lawyer is a waste of time and money.   We can't create awareness on people that are not here.   Now if you are a regular TTer and you decide not to have third party insurance and you ride a bicycle every day, well, that's another story.  And even then, there is not much we could do.

      Pretty much.    Another thing I find strange when talking to nayers is when I comment about the free charging getting relatively popular in big supermarket chains, I tell them you can get 200 km worth free electricity and they tell me "Naaaahhh, I mostly walk to the supermarket".   I am totally sure if the supermarkets were giving you 10-20 liters of benzine/diesel no questions no strings attached they will run to the supermarket every third day with their car even if they didn't need to buy anything.

      There it goes your prediction Tesla fanboi, Fiat Chrysler announces partnership with Foxconn to make e-cars for China, they are going for the biggest EV market in the world.   As I mentioned Tesla will miss their chance of global domination because of their slowness to bring a car for the masses, it doesn't matter if their technology is vastly superior.   P.S., I remember you mentioned several times that Fiat was done, well, we will see.

      For free at: Lidl, Rewe, Kaufland, IKEA, Aldi, Metro, Hornbach. Hagebau, Bauhaus, Sky, Norma, ... Of course not in all branches but most of them are in the process of installing new charging points.  If it will stay for free in the long term, no one knows, because they are being VERY generous at the moment, in most you get electricity worth for around 200km for a 30-60 minutes visit.   This might be enough for a city dweller with a reasonable commute.   And there are literally thousands and thousands of paid chargers on the streets.  Charging is not really an issue at the moment.
  12. Union Membership

    The problem is there is no good blanket recommendation, the issue is down to legal insurance vs union membership and for most people legal insurance makes more sense because it is financially better in the long term and the coverage for workers might be good enough.  Specially for families where both spouses are working because a decent family legal insurance costs from 200 EUR a year.   In case you have to fight your employee you will have to pay 150-300 EUR per case depending on the conditions of your insurance.   The union membership might include other perks, but you have to do your homework and check what is worth for you based on your own situation (and maybe your political beliefs might play a role as well).   The problem is that plenty of foreigners do not have any of the two when they get fired.
  13. It took from 2008 until 2020 to finalize and sign the work contract.  It is a slow process in Germany.   Welcome.   Back.

      Suicide themselves.  Themselves.  Suicide.
  15. Getting fired with an unlimited contract

    1. You notify the Agentur für Arbeit.  (Not the Jobcenter). 2. I guess no.  But I am not 100% sure, never been under such permit. 3. Yes, notify again the Agentur für Arbeit.
