  1. That's something I have never tasted.
  2. Look no further!
  3. What made you laugh today?

    I overheard this yesterday in a restaurant.   Man; How many guys have you slept with before me? Woman: Only you. The others kept me awake.
  4. Why are you leaving Berlin?

    So, where are you going to live now? Back to Britain? You're only 40 and still have most of your life to live. In my opinion, the where is not at all important. Who you spend your life with is the only important thing. I came to Germany more than 25 years ago with the intention of staying here for a couple of years. If II hadn't met my German wife, I would have left a long time ago as I find most Germans quite soulless.. With her, I am very happy, even though I sometimes get homesick for the merry wit and banter in Britain.
  5. What made you smile today?

    The kindness of the workers in India who helped this elephant, but moreso, the gratefulness of the elephant towards the machine that rescued her.. Heartrwarming!
  6. Can you get kicked out of Germany for shoplifting?

    it wouldn't be awkward for a German..

    This is totally true Fraufruit. I was a soccer coach in Indiana many years ago and the parents were the hardest people to control during games.
  8. Jokes

    A Russian, an American, and a British admiral were having a drink on an American aircraft carrier. They were talking about the bravery of their sailors. The Russian said, “I will demonstrate the bravery of our sailors.” He calls a sailor over and says, “Jump off the ship. Swim under it and climb back up.” The sailor promptly salutes and jumps off the flight deck, swims under the ship, climbs up the davits and stands in front of the admiral and salutes. The Russian says, “That, gentlemen, is courage." The American says, “That's nothing.” He calls over a PO and says, “I want you to jump off the bows. Swim under the ship to the stern and then return." The PO salutes, jumps off the bow, swims to the stern, and climbs back up to stand in front of the admiral and salutes. The American says, “That, gentlemen, is courage." The British admiral says, “That's nothing. Sailor, come here." The matelot comes to attention and salutes. The admiral says, “I want you to climb the highest mast on the carrier, jump off, swim under the boat from bow to stern and then from beam to beam then climb up the mast and do it again." The matelot looks at the admiral and says, “You can fuck right off, sir!” The admiral turns to the other two and says, “And that, gentlemen, is courage."
  9. What made you laugh today?   And he hasn't changed his expression since!
  10. This is hard for me to say as I've been in Germany for a long time, and have a German wife and children. The popular music scene in this country is really third-rate.With some notable exceptions like Grunemeyer and maybe the Toten Hosen who have a little charisma,, there is nobody who can compare to the Western singers and musical artists. The rubbish that I hear the teenies listening to in the parks is just noise. Not music. Sad for a country which produced so many classical composers.
  11. Where to find pig intestine

    All common stuff? Not where we go shopping at NETTO or EDEKA or Kaufland, When you come to Berlin, you can go shopping with me.
  12. Where to find pig intestine

    Black 1, if it were that easy, I'd've done it. Hope you're all well!!
  13. Where to find pig intestine

    This is not my definition of  EASY. For a start, the ingredients are not to be found here in Berlin.
