  1.   You don't change your social class simply by earning more money!    
  2. Mutterschutz for partner?

    No you partner has no protection, but there is no need for him to inform the employer of your pregnancy.   It is a private matter and the employer does not need to know if you don't want them to.   I assume that you are worried about him being fired if he asks for Elternzeit during the probationary period, when you can be fired without reason.  The solution is simply not to inform the employer during this period.  This will last only 6 months, and he needs only to apply for Elternzeit a few weeks before he wants to take it.  So he can inform them after the probation period is over and still have sufficient time if he wants to take this directly after the birth.    
  3. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      With Beamters I sometimes wonder if you could tell the difference    
  4.   Valid questions, but I have to admit that when I took German beers back to the UK they didn't go down well! Same with German wine.      
  5. Brexit: The fallout

        I could understand if he wanted to sniff her balls, but sniffing his own balls!    Now that is just not cricket, or tennis!    
  6.   Thank you Lisa13, I thought that I knew that there was a religion that said you could come back as a Human, but I couldn't remember and a quick google I couldn't find it (I had to run to an appointment so it was quick).   A question for you:  If the current Dalai Lama is the 14th iteration, are you the 13th iteration of Lisa?  Does that explain your name?    
  7.     Granted, you will have to change your profile picture.  But I've seen many animals and also many inanimate objects (such as Trump) have social media profiles.  I'm sure one I follow is old Doris who lived down the road when I was a kid.   Besides, as the human race continues to kill of every other living thing on the planet, the the choice of what you return as is becoming more limited.
  8. What happens after reincarnation?   Do you still get to use your existing Facebook, twitter and Instagram profiles or do you need to open new ones?
  9. Brexit: The fallout

        Speaking from experience?   
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    Just came across this on FB.  
  11. I've just posted a silly photo

    Users of a new umbrella complain that it doesn't keep your feet dry.
  12. Brexit: The fallout

      I agree with what you say.   The problem is of course that MPs are at polar opposites to each other.  So no matter what the deal is, some MPs will not like it, and the Brexit hardliners are the most vocal even if they are in the minority.   So you can never win.     Also, all the talk at the moment is about the commons.  What will happen when it goes to the Lords? (OK. So I know there is a process where the commons can force the Lords to accept a bill, but it is not often used and rather frowned upon, and I believe it takes a lot of time).    
  13. Brexit: The fallout

      Let's face it, this is better advice than what most of the MPs are giving!    
  14. Wiring up lights in a German apartment

        I always suggest to switch the power off at the fuse box and then CHECK that the power if really off by using a testing device.   Once I went to install a light in the kitchen of our new apartment, I turned off the power to the kitchen at the fuse box, started to wire up the light and got an electric shock!  It turned out that the wires for this light were on a different circuit to everything else in the kitchen and I hadn't checked after turning the power off!      
  15.   Don't forget to use the "Du" form when you speak to them!
