  1. German right of way laws

    Of course, but surely this is what the people in the EU should be working to unify throughout its member states. Everybody understands yield and stop signs. It would be much cheaper than putting these little skew-whiff yellow squares on every road junction with the right of way.
  2. German right of way laws

    In my opinion, the right before left rule here is stupid. Cars travelling straight ahead should always have the right of way. Cars coming from side roads should always have yield or stop signs. What can be difficult about that?
  3. Dear luna CH, whoever you are,   I have read all your posts on this thread and cannot believe that you have come here seeking advice on the burial of a pet and don't have the intelligence to tell people here whether the pet is dead or alive.   To many people here, including me,  a cat or a dog etc is a family member, as you have said, and deserves respect as to how the remains are handled. I don't subscribe to the extreme way some Americans bury their pets in graveyards and pay exorbitant sums every year to maintain the graves, and feel that a cremation is better for all.   One of my friends has buried her dog in her garden and has never had a problem with anybody. The grave has now grown over and the body has returned to the earth. Much preferable to a metal box in concrete. The cat would probably come back to haunt you.   P.S. Sir Percy. You're still doing it!
  4. The English Teacher's Corner

    It depends where the hair is.  Just a joke! I would say 'short brown curly hair'. There's really no rule about this, it's just a question of common usage.
  5. What made you laugh today?

    Guess which newspaper! "Woman is forced to bite a camel's genitals to escape after the animal sat on her at the Tiger Truck Stop in Louisiana when she ran into its enclosure chasing her deaf dog"
  6. Looking for tandem-partner in Berlin

    Malteaser, tandem learning is a recognised description of what Ricarda is looking for. It means that you don't have to pay for a teacher. The disadvantage is that neither of you are teachers and know what you are doing.
  7. Vegan coming for dinner

    Do you have any Welsh ancestors, isn't it?
  8. Vegan coming for dinner

    This is sooooo stupid. Why be a vegan if you mimic eating meat???
  9. Compulsory bag inspection at the grocery

    Or even should be in some cases.
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    I totally agree. The man should be fired for doing this.
  11. stairwell terror

    Have you read and understood the replies on this thread? Haven't they made you stop and think about what you are doing in the stairwell and perhaps, give thought to changing your ways? Or, are you a shining example of the Australian arsehole we all think of?
  12. Defendant Covers Face

    I thought we were talking about google maps, French bean, which I personally find extremely useful.

    Please don't tempt fate Lisa!  
  14. stairwell terror

    On the stairs in fact. Tolerance for these kind of selfish egotistical things has gone way too far.  
  15. Defendant Covers Face

    Why would you want to? Anybody walking past can see it I presume. All this data protection nonsense is completely overdone, in my opinion.
