  1.   As far as the mink carcasses having to be dug up again, why couldn't they have incinerated them? If I remember rightly, they did this with millions of diseased cattle suffering from mad cow disease in the UK. 
  2.   I wonder how mink farmers disposed of the bodies after skinning them before Covid. 
  3. Parkett floor damage / Insurance cover

    Here's a useful link:     I think you should contact your liabilty insurance and they will assess how much they will pay, how much you might have to pay and also how much the landlord should pay. The life span of the parquet also plays a role. Best also to join a Mieterverein if you haven't already. 
  4. Coronavirus

    I for one hope there will be an overall ban on New Year's Eve firecracker madness:;art295,4419441#:~:text=Das%20Z%C3%BCnden%2C%20der%20Kauf%20und,Beschlussentwurf%20des%20Vorsitzlandes%20der%20Ministerpr%C3%A4sidentenkonferenz.   The big New Year's Eve bang could be cancelled this year - at least in the SPD-led federal states. The reasons for the cancellations are manifold. New Year's Eve without firecrackers? In some federal states such as Berlin there could be a ban on firecrackers because of Corona. The SPD-led federal states do not want to allow New Year's Eve fireworks this year.   The "Berliner Morgenpost" and the business magazine "Business Insider" report that the ignition, purchase and sale of firecrackers and rockets are therefore to be banned in Germany at the turn of the year, citing a draft resolution by the state chairing the Minister President's Conference. Berlin's Mayor Michael Müller (SPD) is currently the Chairman of the Conference.   The aim is to avoid the formation of groups, to relieve the burden on emergency services such as the police and fire brigade and to keep the capacities of the health care system free, according to the paper, which is also available to dpa and is dated 22 November. This Wednesday, Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and the Minister Presidents of the Länder will discuss the further course of action in the Corona pandemic. A partial lockdown is currently in force, but will expire at the end of November. © dpa-infocom, dpa:201122-99-427064/2 Translated with (free version)
  5. Polizei

      You can. This link gives you all the information:
  6. Coronavirus

      I agree with you. But this is Germany with a short dark past. Suspend basic rights today and you are in trouble (in Germany). Nazikeule.
  7. Coronavirus

    I've noticed that quite a few times the courts have overturned some of the restiriction orders. Someone files a suit with respect to the Grundrechte (basic rights) and schwuppdiwupp the measures are obselete. There are going to be many more law suits.  They can't even ban these stupid anti-corona demonstrations due to the basic right to demonstrate. I pity the policemen having to wade in there every time. 
  8.     It's all happening as predicted in the TED Talk link you posted earlier. It's disturbing. As long as Trump doesn't concede, this scenario will continue. 
  9.   Well, as mentioned earlier, there have been several attempts to change the system over the years, but were not very successful:      
  10.   Very informative. This is what I have been afraid of since learning earlier about the not so democratic US election system. 
  11. What's got you flummoxed today?

      It's hard to see them suffer. I hope he perks up soon. 
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Best to starve him for a day to clear the system. Then offer rice with Magerquark mixed in several times during the day for a couple of days. It's mild on the stomach and has lots of protein. That's what my dog gets when he's not well. I also mix in moor liquid, which supports the stomach lining and the gut flora.
  13. Why are you unhappy today?

      It concerns Schleswig-Holstein. Hopefully it won't spread further. 
  14. The Jugendamt visited my home

      That's what a German would do. I would as well. No one takes it seriously. 
  15.   Can't you just be happy for America at this moment?
