  1. UK Election night watching?

    Can we vote? When I tried to vote in the Brexit referendum, I was told I couldn't as I had been away from the UK for too long.
  2. How to stay friends with a friend

    OK, here's one. I have found that Germans don't want or need friends. They don't like people. The only people they regularly mix with are family members and sexual partners, and they don't always like them either. As soon as you cease to be useful to them, you're out of their lives.
  3. Stop! Cunha, you sound like a good person. This is not the end of the world. Just relax, pay the fine when it comes, and then put all this behind you and get on with your life. We all live and learn. Nobody is perfect.
  4. Cat safety net for balconies
  5. What made you laugh today?

    Would girls do this, I wonder?
  6. Pesar, it isn't clear whether you have black hair, or if you have black hairs growing from somwhere unusual perhaps? I can't imagine why somebody would be rejected because of their hair colour. Aren't these clubs targetting 20 somethings? Do you fit into this category?  
  7. Disturbing right-wing activities on the rise?

    The sad fact is that the police will do nothing until something happens. Until someone breaks the law, they are powerless.
  8. What made you laugh today?

    The lighter side of life.
  9. Eviction due to problems with flatmates

    I can't imagine what court would want to hear about this kind of BS. They have more important things to do. Or should have!
  10. Game of Thrones (TV series) (Spoilers )

    Thanks Smaug, but I'm none the wiser.
  11. Even after all these years, I still...

    You're quite right Lisa. It's a cultural thing. Have you ever been to India? I was at the the airport in Bombay, now Mumbai, many years ago, and was looking for a place to sit for 2 hours, waiting for my next flight, when I spotted a narrow space at the end of a bench. I sat down with relief, but in the next 2 minutes, there were 3 people sitting bewteen me and the person next to me. Some on each other's laps. Thankfully, none of them on mine!
  12. Game of Thrones (TV series) (Spoilers )

    Does anyone know how to play the downloaded PC game in English? I've tried and tried but all I get is the German version, Thanks.

    So... where does she pee?
  14. Yes. The day is not so far away when all the small shops will be gone and Amazon will be the only retailer. Watch out then all you bargain hunters!!
