    A new nicer "me too" movement, because me too.

    Sorry, got to ask now - what the heck is JC Munich?

    Eh?

    Checking my profile I found my rank was Elljay.
  6. What's got you flummoxed today?

    In a bit of a quandary where to post this; in the Vent or here - but as I was kind of flummoxed at my own reaction to the actual flummox, here it is: I am watching the game between Mexico and Saudi Arabia. The Mexican national anthem is being played. The players are singing with gusto, the Mexicans who have travelled to see their team are singing their hearts out; grown men crying - a small boy belting it out. Well, I'm no flag waving gung ho patriot, I mostly find it a bit embarrassing, but when the camera went on to the Mexican coaching team and none of them were singing - they were chewing gum, I got really angry!
  7. Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie  https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-63812952
  8. I woke up blind in one eye this morning

    Maybe the computer misbehaved? Anyway, all the best John. Having eye issues is scary. But England won! Sorry about Wales, though...
  9. The War in Ukraine

    It's reported that 10.000 Ukrainian children have been taken to Russia and will be adopted by Russian couples. Could this be true?
  10. How to get rid of plastic electric appliances

    Wertstoffhof.
  11. A really painful experience at the dentist!

    @ChelskiThank you for posting that! I couldn't remember what the film was called, I knew it had something to do with running. 
  12. What made you laugh today?

    @HH_Sailor. Those photos are really wonderful and hilarious!
  13. Insults in social media

    Oh yes, I remember all the "Panama registered " ships. To avoid having to allow the crew to join a union and to avoid taxes and safety protocols. 
  14. Favorite books in German language

    No, just about ten or so, plus a few more writing in german.
  15. 3G in Restaurants?

    Please explain. And why wouldn't I be afraid of the covid virus?
  16. What made you laugh today?

    Erm, are we assuming that he's without undergarments? In that case, it looks enormous to me.  
  17. 3G in Restaurants?

    What the heck does this mean?  Anyway, I, like my friends and family, got the vaccinations as soon as we could, because we didn't want to die from covid. It's a very unpleasant death. I've seen patients drowning from inside , not being able to breathe - it's horrible.  And could you PLEASE stop referring to the corona virus as "rona". It reads like baby talk. It's belittling to the people - not sheeple - who have lost dear ones.  
  18. What's got you flummoxed today?

    I'm pleased he didn't go with the red shirt, the one that actually looks pink. Which charity would get the massive, pun intended, amount?
  19. Has Kwasi just destroyed the UK economy?

    I suppose the trickle down theory of the conservatives is the opposite of the socialist grass root theory. I'd go for thingies grow from the ground up.
  20. Have all admins abandoned Toytown?

    Got an Error message, and have sent a message to "admin"(?)
  21. Have all admins abandoned Toytown?

    So what's with the double posts again?
  22. Have all admins abandoned Toytown?

    So what's with the double posts again?
  23. Can a German be rude when speaking English?

    Well, I'm not German but English is my second language. And I can be rude in it. Or direct. I remember an Englishman saying he would call a "spade a spade", yes,and I retorted: but there is no no need to call him a bloody shovel. And I've told off people for different reasons, which probably have seemed rude to them, but it wouldn't really have been in Swedish . Brits are rather sensitive little beings. Do you remember the thread about Brits being all hurt because Germans used - can you believe it- exclamation marks in E-mails, when they wanted something done?  
  24. 3G in Restaurants?

    @PandaMunich What I really reacted to was the suggestion that you would get payment from the government if you informed on your neighbours, STASI-esque style.
