    Hello everyone!

    Did you know George Zimmerman Planning to Get Psychology or Political Science Degree? LOL

    Here’s some European music for you:

    Hmmm…speaking of turntables earlier….Beck…Where It’s At….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPfmNxKLDG4

    • the1dood says:

      These “trade deals” should NEVER be negotiated in secret! Not a single one…NEVER!

    • Grottenolm says:

      The German meat industry is by no means as idyllic as they portrait it in that article. The way pigs have to grow up (or grow fat enough) is awful, no different than the USA. Only some substances that are allowed in the USA are not allowed here, such as hormones and genetically altered food. We have a whole lot less obese people, and IMHO because of our stricter (not strict enough! food laws. Meat is super cheap here, unless you buy bio (= organic). To my knowledge, nowhere is food as cheap when compared to the income as it is in Germany.

    Great….I have no f_cking water pressure…. 😦

    • Grottenolm says:

      American workers really don’t have it easy. No social net, no vacation time to speak about, iffy health insurance. And fewer rights than employees in other industrialized countries. I often wonder why you don’t have a revolution.

      • waverly says:

        I wonder that myself. Americans are suffering from learned helplessness.

        • Grottenolm says:

          There’s that. Plus they seem to believe they can make it rich – the pursuit of happiness thing. Somehow, many Americans (trolls on HuffPost) seem to believe that poor and sick people earn their fate, and the rich earn their riches, and that solidarity = socialism = communism. Did Paris Hilton deserve her riches?

          • Coppernicus says:

            American’s love to believe in the mythical American dream. And they just can’t grasp the fact that there is a reason the wealthy represent a small number. They might as well try and become a professional athlete too.

            • Grottenolm says:

              The average German wants his or her cradle-to-grave health insurance including dental, nursing and palliative care, 30 working days paid vacation a year, union rights, retirement benefits, a safety net that is supposed (and manages pretty well) to leave nobody behind. The vast majority is willing to pay higher taxes than US citizens for example. We want security instead of the dream of making it from dishwasher to millionaire. Really rich people don’t show off here. So far we have no gated communities, and nobody sleeping in cars or under bridges (with the exception of a few poor illegal refugees, though their numbers are rising).

          • waverly says:

            Americans are idiots.

            • Grottenolm says:

              I wouldn’t put it that way. We have our fair share of idiots and sheeples, too. I think that Americans are much much more brainwashed – the hand-over-heart when the national anthem plays comes to mind. Now Germans have had their patriotism exorcised something fierce. With the exception of the advertisement industry, representing the arch capitalists, they don’t really brainwash us too much. But then, how would I know whether I’m brainwashed or not, if I am?

      • the1dood says:

        I’m afraid one may come someday…it won’t be pretty 😦

      • Coppernicus says:

        My great grandfather was straight off the boat? Can I become a German citizen. I’m not gonna lie I was a terrible student when my grandma was trying to teach me German.

        • Grottenolm says:

          If you have a profession that enables you to find a job here, you’d be welcome. Germany needs immigration because of demographics (ze Germans are dying out…) It’s easier for US citizens to work here than for many other non-EU nationals. Americans have special privileges, they can even listen to my and Angela Merkel’s phone, and nothing happens 😉

          • the1dood says:

            Hmmmmm….do they need RNs??

            • Grottenolm says:

              Yes, they do. It’s one of the jobs where they are looking for people. Unfortunately, RNs are underpaid, and the jobs in hospitals very stressy. Our medics emigrate to places like Switzerland and Scandinavia, because conditions are better there. If you were flipping burgers, your chances would be considerably lower ;-D

              • the1dood says:

                Working in another country is something I sometimes dream about…

                • Coppernicus says:

                  What about doctors without boarders or peace corps?

                • the1dood says:

                  Don’t know what I’d do with my pup! My parents are getting older too…dad has worsening dementia…

                • Grottenolm says:

                  They have offices in Germany, but those people work in Africa, Asia, South Detroit, not here.

                • Grottenolm says:

                  I’ve done it. In the USA. There were several reasons for wanting to go back home, even though I had a green card. One of the main ones was the lack of insurance, vacation, job security. That’s why I appreciate them so much. Most people I know take our social net for granted. When I tell them how things are in the USA, they often think I’m exaggerating. Everybody here knows that there are many very poor people in the USA, and the health care system is for the rich. But that it’s THAT bad…

                • the1dood says:

                  I think I really just want to travel like you are! 🙂
                  Maybe someday!!

          • Coppernicus says:

            How is the skiing? And I have a horse. Does Germany have an equivalent for a Physicians Assistant?

            • Coppernicus says:

              Otherwise I can double as a research biologist. I could also work in a lab running PCR or something.

              • Grottenolm says:

                Now there’s a thought. In international biology labs, the lingua franca is English. So are their homepages.

            • Grottenolm says:

              Physicians assistant would be “Arzthelfer”. Not possible without adequate German and knowledge of the very complicated health insurance system. Not well paid, but still 30 working days vacation etc. p.p.

            • Grottenolm says:

              Sorry, I didn’t answer all your questions. There is skiing, mainly (but not only) in the south (the Alps). If you’re rich, you can ship your horse, and live in the country somewhere. But if you’re rich enough to ship a horse, you might as well stay where you are. The USA is a very nice place for rich people.

    I’m doing some research for my trip to Montevideo, and found this:

    Very very funny, the Uruguayans!
