  1. Reichsbürger arrested attempting a coup d'etat

    Looks like a wacky German ex-aristocrat in Frankfurt was arrested, too. Heinrich Prince Reuss was supposed to rule Germany after the coup.
  2. Why are you happy today?

    Don't feed the troll.
  3. Random pointless comments

      Indeed. Exactly the people who can't afford the gas / the car to drive to a far office voting station tend to have pesky, ah, liberal/non-right wing views. Here's just one example, but there are many other groups: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/10/16/native-americans-fear-votes-in-remote-areas-could-go-uncounted https://www.eac.gov/election-officials/voting-access-native-americans-case-studies-best-practices
  4. Insults in social media

    Yes, we can play this all day long, as the Tor network already is filled with law enforcement and tax office nodes looking for people like you. This started years ago. Do keep up.
  5. Insults in social media

    Let's put it this way - I used to work for a DSL provider in Germany. When the police called and requested user details for a specified time and IP address, I was under strict orders from my CEO to answer their questions and give them the information. Just saying. IANAL.
  6. 3G in Restaurants?

    Currently, restaurants, beergardens, event locations etc. are supposed to check their guests if they are: - vaccinated, or - recovered from Covid, or - very recently tested.   I'm in Bavaria, which pretends to be very strict about this. It didn't quite look that way when I recently started going to restaurants in town with friends - I may have have been checked once or twice out of 15 - 20 visits. Do I just look so so trustworthy , or what's going on?
  7. Only in America

      Yes, I do. Do you actually read?  
  8. The War in Ukraine

      *applauds* Touché!!  
  9. What made you laugh today?

      *clap clap clap* This just made Mr Metall laugh!!
  10. Have all admins abandoned Toytown?

      Oh yes, Ed Bob rolled on quite a while ago...
  11. Why are you unhappy today?

    Sorry, I can't resist quoting this gem from the Interwebs:   Charles from London posted a success story in Ask A Manager: "After 73 years I’ve finally gotten a promotion at work!"
  12. Random pointless comments

      *clap clap clap* Thank Goodness!!
  13. Why are you unhappy today?

    But Charlie is interested in topics that affect the younger generation - climate change, sustainable food production... he already ran an organic farm in the 80s! Maybe there's some common ground after all.   (IMHO he never should have been a royal - gentleman farmer maybe. )
  14. Tenant subletting for profit

    Well, then raise the Nebenkosten to high hell! There is no cap on that.
  15. Queen Elizabeth

    I'm an American and thus certainly not a monarchist. But: I've lived with the image of Queen Elizabeth my entire life. She already headed "the firm" when I was a child, and I grew up with her young profile on the occasional  Canadian (and later British) coins I encountered.  She intrigued me for being a rare female Head of State in a world of powerful men, and I was greatly surprised to later learn about a very successful ER I as well. She was a last echo of the days of WW2, too. I admired her for having trained as a car mechanic back then. I admired her even more when she insisted on driving a Land Rover in Saudi Arabia , flaunting the local law that banned women from the steering wheel and making Crown Prince Abdullah very uncomfortable. And her subtle snubs of Trump made me laugh.  
  16. Is it a DISCRIMINATION at work place.?

      That is a bog standard Scrum 101 answer.
  17. Why are you unhappy today?

    Reminds me so much of the bad old days on Malta...
  18. January 6th Select Committee

      Don't say that! You'll bring back our favorite wine fueled boat captain!!
  19.   Here's the thing - if deadbeat ex simply keeps the child, in his mind he won't have to pay at all! I would be very wary of sending the child to Hungary, especially with that county's poor track record in respect to child abductions. Seriously.   EDIT: +1 to Mike above!!
  20. The War in Ukraine

      That's exactly what people used to do in the old days!
  21. Where can I find nuts with reasonable price?

    Ah, peanuts are beans, not nuts, and not nearly as healthy... but cheap.
  22. Curious little cars???

    I've found that using a smaller bicycle bell that only goes "ding" (instead of "SSSSRRRRRAANNNNNGGGGG")  is enough to warn people and doesn't make them jump out of their skins and yell at me!
  23. What made you laugh today?

    Drunk on joy, John? *winks*   (see what I did there? )
  24. The Jupiter image looks like the colors were blue shifted (from partly infrared to the visible spectrum)!!
  25. What made you laugh today?

      Actually, I thought Tor would beat me to it!
