  1. Check that you are on the last page of the thread, then copy all the text here, and paste it in a new post. With your name added to the bottom. How can it go wrong?   1. Ian 2. Allershausen (I'm going to regret this I'm sure!  ) 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  2. Tickets Wanted for Rugby Oktoberfest 7s 30.09.17

    Tickets appear to be available here: Tickets  (I've sent the OP a message too, just thought I would post it here as well in case anybody else is interested).
  3. 2 tickets for Paulaner on Sat, Sep 16 at 1500-1900

    You paid €350 for something worth €60? There is no such thing as tickets for the Oktoberfest, entry is free. A complete table can be reserved, but still only costs €30 - €40 per person which includes vouchers which cover the price of 2 beers , half a chicken and sometimes a snack platter. Either you or whoever you got the reservation from, presuming you have one, are seriously ripping people off. See here. If you don't have a reservation these vouchers are pointless.
  4. TV via the Internet as an alternative to satellite

    I use Unotelly SmartDNS and I can watch the player and the ITV player etc. I can also watch SKY Go on my computer using it. The ip address update sometimes has problems in so much as my router doesn't recognise it any more, but pulling the plug out and then putting it back a few seconds later seems to do the trick.
  5. Agent Requests "Commission" To Ensure I Get Apartment

    There is, however, a Hafenplatz 1,10963 Berlin. Edit: El Jeffo beat me to it.
  6. Britain Bans Diesel and Gasoline Cars Starting in 2040

    Read the report again. There weren't 570,000 plug in cars sold last year, that figure is the total number sold up to that date, i.e. including all the years proceeding that. The figure is a drop in the ocean compared to all the petrol cars sold. This doesn't mean that won't change, but we are a long way off from having all electric cars, in fact I doubt if it will have happened by 2040. I would like to be wrong.
  7. Research question relating to vintage car

    A coupe de ville traditionally has an open area for the driver and front seat passenger while the rear passenger area is covered, just like the one in the photo, although this one appears to have a folding roof which allows the rear passengers to travel al fresco! 
  8. Beer price breaks €10 mark

    Have you ever actually been to the Oktoberfest? The funfair is full of children. They even have a special day when it is, a little bit, cheaper for families. However, I don't want to encourage even more people to come, so please keep on spouting your nonsense. 
  9. Beer price breaks €10 mark

    Not at all. It's full of locals and tourists. You wouldn't want to go there every week, it's expensive, but when you consider what you're actually getting as far as atmosphere and entertainment, it's actually pretty cheap. A Maß in a Munich beer garden costs somewhere between €6,00 and €8,40 so a couple of Euros for such a great event is, I think, a small price to pay. However if you think it's far too much, please stay away so those of us who enjoy it have a better chance of finding a seat.

  11. Voting in UK general elections

    As you've been here so long you could take up German citizenship and if you do it before Britain leaves the EU you don't have to give up your British citizenship. After the Brexit fiasco the Tories promised that they would change the rules about non residents voting rights, but of course it was just a load of hot air.
  12. Spaten Helles

    That's what you think, I think the reality is somewhat different. All Munich beers have a slightly different taste, but the difference is so small that I believe most people really couldn't tell one from another, despite what they try to tell themselves.  
  13. Spaten Helles

    All Munich beers taste pretty much the same, as indeed do most Bavarian Helle. This is not a criticism, they are all of a pretty high standard.  I doubt if many of you could reliably tell one from another in a blind tasting.
