  1. Fire in my apartment building

    Terrible. Hope you recover from the shock sooner rather than later and have someone to talk to when it really hits you. If you find you are dreaming about it and/or the images will not go away after a reasonable time, get professional help. Glad you got out.

  3. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Yeah, it's perverted and sad when care is construed as stalking. I really think the Germans, collectively, are a broken people in some ways.
  4. That's easier said than done, although I like the poetry and rhythm of that short sentence. Name for a punk group perhaps? There would still be remains. She's not gonna put them in the biotonne or the compost heap, now is she? And no, not one of those glass jewelry pieces they do from the ashes either. Surely.
  5. This sounds promising indeed. Wondering how the soon-to-be defunct cat fits in. Is he the fragile person? At last something captivating on TT.
  6. Brexit: The fallout

    Well there was once a life pre-European Community... we ate food, not just grass, when it was in season. Who wants those rock-hard tasteless strawberries in November anyway? Is Europe really working? (Just daring to ask...)
  7. Family friendly area east munich

    Zamdorf. Good urban planning, lots of pedestrian and park space. Downside is that you get the noise and air pollution from the motorway. But it is the same anywhere in Munich.
  8. It's just TT. Do not take it personally. Obviously the readers cannot understand your very personal circumstances and unfortunate predicament. It is difficult to understand that it is impossible to remove the deceased from your building for appropriate disposal without the fragile person knowing. Presumably they sleep at some point? Do they NEVER leave the home? Your least bad solution - and I appreciate this is what you are facing - really doesn't sound like a good idea further down the line.
  9. Tupperware? Biscuit tin? Why not just a decomposable shoe box? Or is it really a cat? Under the cellar, so ghoulish...
  10. When these sites say your booking is confirmed, they mean it is confirmed for the hotel. Think about it. They have no influence on what happens on the ground. Which is why people book through third parties, rock up to the hotel and find they have no room. Booking.com cannot guarantee you will have a roof over your head. What they are guaranteeing when they take your card number is a client for the hotel. That sentence "your reservation is guaranteed" is misleading.
  11. Bankrupt but picky

    If you want to go pop-eyed at the OneCoin scam, tune into this:   https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-49826161   And tune into this for the Iraqi imams performing temporary mariages for a fat fee, aka pimping, to the oh-so-devout pilgrims, at their holiest sites: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07ptd0f   Men getting the o.k. from another man to exploit women with all the misery it entails. If this doesn't persuade you that religion is a scam then nothing will.
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

    It's so bad it's funny. He is the organiser. I will indeed practice the glare. And buy a burka.
  13. What's got you flummoxed today?

    ... has gone... has gone... Hoops.
  14. What's got you flummoxed today?

    To clarify I am there as a guest musician. The offenders are staff who play in the hospital ensemble - it's a voluntary thing. The offences I experienced first hand have never occurred on the premises. So I wouldn't go to the management. Unless I was being blackmailed. Wondering if that is not his next move.   An Leon hits the nail right on the head. I agree myself that sometimes women do naively put themselves in danger - and then are really surprised when stuff happens. We should not have to think about our security but fact is, we can be at risk if the enivironment is right and the guy is a wanker.   A woman on the radio who was into BDSM and went away with a guy she had met at what they call a munch got far more then she bargained for. And was aggrieved. And went to the police. I admit I thought she was pretty dim for putting herself in such a position. Where do we draw the line?
  15. Plastic packaging at Grocery stores

    You can even just wash your hair with ordinary soap.
