  1. Smoking in public places

    What about exhaust from traffic, petrol and diesel?  Can you cross the street then?
  2. What made you laugh today?

    Some of this stuff is really funny, but how do you stop it? How long does it go on for?
  3. Jokes

    Heard this on the radio today in German.   A husband burst into his bedroom and finds a strange man in bed with his wife. He screams " You have slept with my wife? For that you will pay!!"   The man looks at him and says, " I'm not stupid. I'm not going to pay twice?"    
  4. Lufthansa Strike

    When people like you, who take regular flights are multiplied by millions, yes it can.
  5. Lufthansa Strike

    Like lemmings have the freedom to follow each other over cliffs?
  6. Lufthansa Strike

    You must have been leader of some debating society at university. Right? I think NOT.
  7. Lufthansa Strike

    Do you know something I don't?
  8. Lufthansa Strike

    Yes, including the entire planet.
  9. Lufthansa Strike

    Not only for the wealthy who have their own private jets and don't need to rub shouders with the riff-raff. The culture of jetting off to Rome for the weekend should be nipped in the bud however. Sure, we all deserve a nice holiday once a year but this should be a luxury, not  an every day routine activity. I agree with taxing airplane fuel, sky-high if necessary.
  10. English boating course

    If you can make a licence. Fraufruit, you don't need to do a course. do you?
  11. Katzennetz or cat net for balcony

    Hi Ralf, We also have a balcony and a cat who can find his way out of anything, given the chance! We ordered a net from a company called Hoffman-Reynsner in June 2009. They came and installed it with minimum fuss and no damage to the balcony. It is still there after more than 11 years. Therefore to be recommended. It cost 120€ all in.   Here is a link;   http://ww12.hoffmann-reysner.de/   Good luck!
  12. What made you laugh today?

    BBC news report today. Their German correspondent, an atractive lady, told the world that the Bundesliga are starting games again behihd closed doors with strict guidlines, including no shaking of hands etc. According to the reporter, the teams are even "gong to be disinfecting their balls at half-time". The mind boggles!
  13. You sound like you're a devil for punishment. If you want to meet women, you have to join a singles club. They don't like speaking to strangers in bars, or anywhere else for that matter.
  14. "Please call me by my first name"

    I can't believe you're so sensitive when your name here is MollyWolly.
  15. "Please call me by my first name"

    Not where I come from. They were all 'Miss',
  16. "Please call me by my first name"

    In Japan, they say "Muschi muschi" or something similar when they answer the phone.
  17. What made you laugh today?

    Must be thick, but I don't understand this at all. I understand the words, but not the humour. Please explain.
  18. Self respect and civic responsibility?
  19. What made you laugh today?

    "Is lockdown jogging ruining your cleavage? Experts warn 20 minutes of jogging without a sports bra can make breasts move around by 14cm and cause 'irreparable tissue damage"   Thank goodnes I don't have to worry about this. I don't go jogging! Maybe Dolly Parton?
  20. Thank goodness. We can all sleep at nights again.

    My father would turn in his grave at this. His mother, my grandmother, was visiting us from Scotland and took our dog for a walk one Sunday morning. She was gone longer than expected and we were quite worried about where she had got to. (She was about 80 at the time). She eventually came home to our house and told us she had been taken to a pub by our dog who had refused to leave the front door of same until she had gone in. My father was totally red-faced.  Moral of the story? Never trust a dog not to put you in the shit:
  22. The "UP Side" of Quarantine

    Sounds like my dog. (Just kidding!He doesn't like sauerkraut).

    About Venus. Sorry to squash the romantic view.  Very Interesting though: https://www.space.com/venus-runaway-greenhouse-effect-earth-next.html    
  24. I totally agree. Unless the car is really valuable, forget it and start your life again, perhaps a little bit wiser?
  25. The "UP Side" of Quarantine

    So, as we're all locked down, is there anyone else interested in astronomy? I have a telescope which I'm thinking of selling as I live on the ground floor of an apartment building with a small balcony and can never seem to be in the right place to see anything interesting. At the moment, Venus is bright in the sky, but is always behind a tree or something. :-(
