  2. school leaver health insurance

    Found this online for you, @kiplette:   (source)   If she has a preference, she should enroll with the Krankenkasse of her choice. If she fails to do so within 14 days of starting the job, the choice will be made for her.
  3. "Paigo"

      You need to get in touch with the Rundfunkagentur and explain the situation. Hopefully it will be resolved at no cost to you.
  4. Twat of the day

    So you dragged the image from the e-mail to the edit box? That created a link to the file on your computer, which your browser can decode, but nobody else's - because we don't have access to your computer.   You can save the file on your local drive by right-clicking it and choosing "Save image as..." (or something like that) and then upload it to the server from the storage location.
  5. Twat of the day

    Copy and paste is unreliable due to differences in browsers and add-ons, plus many sites take active measures to discourage hot-linking.   Better to use the "choose files" link at the bottom of the editing box and upload directly to the TT server.
  6. Politics Gen XYZ

      Sounds like a good premise for a comedy sketch, à la Benny Hill.
  7. Twat of the day

    Because your image doesn't display.

      Don Jr. - aka Half-Scoop - seems to be taking the impending indictment well:   How coked up to you have to be to think posting that was a good idea?
  9. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    Oh what tangled webs we weave...     "Zero transparency"  
  10. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

      In which MME nearly gets it.   Bitcoin is still real to him, dammit.
  11. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

      They're creating billions and billions of dollars out of nothing and it's being used to prop up other cryptos, notably bitcoin and Etherium.
  12.   One of my son's classmates was born while his German parents were taking a sabbatical in South Africa, where they don't have Germany's strict naming laws.   His first name is Ben. Middle name is Kenobi. Last name is a typically German name ending with "mann"   I shit you not.
  13. Electric Meter Number Scam

      Tell them to fuck right off. Like, all the way off. And when they get there, they should fuck off some more.    
  14. Electric Meter Number Scam

      You'd think that they'd need at least a few more data points, but according to the articles I linked, they don't.   Things that make you go "hmmm"...
  15. Electric Meter Number Scam

    Apparently, the name and meter number are all an unscrupulous individual needs to register you for a new electricity rate with a new provider.   https://www.wochenendspiegel.de/neue-masche-betrug-mit-stromzaehler-nummern/ https://www.t-online.de/finanzen/news/unternehmen-verbraucher/id_85759544/vorsicht-vor-anrufen-von-vermeintlichen-stromanbietern.html
  16. Things to ponder

      If it's a theory, it's unproven, and therefore worthy of doubt by citizen scientists and citizen historians (aka ignorant racists).   It's the Doublespeak that Orwell warned us about.
  17. What made you laugh today?

    Super Army Soldiers is a gag straight out of Extras.
  18. Transferring visa to new passport in Berlin? Is it required?

      Yes, it seems they're doing the eAT (elektronischer Aufenthaltstitel) now - I just have a sticker (with hologram) in my passport.   Progress comes at a price, I guess.
  19. Transferring visa to new passport in Berlin? Is it required?

    Did you make it clear that you just need to transfer your existing permit from your old passport to the new one? And not extend your current permit?   I only ask because the last time I had to do it (which was a couple of years ago), it would have cost 10 yoyos, but they waived it because I have a German spouse.
  20. Three-word story

    pooting from derrieres
  21. Politics Gen XYZ

      Rudy Deludy.   The only thing that surprises me is that he didn't book Four Seasons Landscaping for his announcement.
  22. Three-word story

    jaqoffs roam freely
  23. Transferring visa to new passport in Berlin? Is it required?

    Did they say why it will take them 4-5 weeks? Whenever I get my passport renewed, it takes about 10 minutes for them to paste the new sticker in my new passport.   I have permanent residence, though. If your residence period is limited, there may be some extra bureaucracy involved.   In any case, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't just take both passports with you. You should use your new one first and only pull out the one the resident permit upon re-entry, if they give you any trouble.
