  1. Why are you unhappy today?

    I've had dreams of deceased parents, relatives, friends. Usually in a spiritual context (telling them it was time to move on), but when in times I was unhappy or very sick, they would briefly check in, let me know they were OK, or even be encouraging.  Ahem *quick wipe*.
  2. The War in Ukraine

    German radio claimed 10,000 out 50,000 Wagner troops remain (as in 20%). The other 40,000 are said to have been killed, wounded, captured or plain deserted. Small wonder with mercs recruited from Russian prisons... the radio also claimed new labor  camps would be opened on Russian occupied Ukranian territory, and Wagner would recruit mercenaries there.
  3. Registration of new members - waiting time?

      I suggest those interested contact The Local by phone or email and ask.
  4. Registration of new members - waiting time?

    I wanted to ask if Toytown could list the moderators and how to contact them, the way other forums do.

      Is Harry now officially a (rich) Bad Boy?
  7. What made you laugh today?

      Didn't @tor mention this little ditty once? Adorable lyrics (at least to me)!
  8. Darmspiegelung - colonoscopy

      Same here, please ask why it wasn't removed/biopsied, and get a second opinion /colonoscopy at a university clinic.   If you can get hold of the doctor's letter / Arztbrief, I can explain the words in a PM or phone call. Source: own medical background

      I don't cover things up the way my family and other people in my life did. Ain't got no time for this. I speak about whatever went down, the good, the bad, the ugly.    
  10. What made you smile today?

      Sounds like a... *cough*professional*cough* account. Enjoy yourself as long as you know what you are getting yourself into.

    Oops. Just saying like it is. Peace.
  12. Registration of new members - waiting time?

    itsmeyo was a former TT member who was accused of stalking (member admitted behavior that can be seen as such) by a mod and banned for it. He likes to pop up occasionally as a new account (usually hinting who he is). Said mod (by now maybe someone else) likes to track him down and re-perma-ban, as if cease and desist letters didn't exist in Germany/EU. The TT drama continues. I may get into trouble for saying this (in case I fall silent). Peace.

      Welcome to TT!  
  14. BREXIT positives and negatives

      We don't discuss sockpuppets on TT  
  15. Employer going back to 100% on-site work

    And then the Betriebsrat (union).

  17. Merry Christmas to all on TT

    Merry Christmas, everybody! I've been quite ill since October, but much improved now with some help from the German health system. All the best to TT!
  18. 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.
  19. Why are you happy today?

    Don't feed the troll.
  20. 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:
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. Only in America

      Yes, I do. Do you actually read?
