Oh, the fun you can have with a right-hand-drive car in Germany...

Police stopping me. Policeman leans in and says: "Oh, no driver today?"

"Do you think if I could afford a driver, I'd be travelling in a Polo?"

Luckily he had a sense of humour and let me drive on without going through the whole works.

Have a good start to the week, guys!

Comma ?

You Are a Comma

You are open minded and extremely optimistic.
You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.

You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.
You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.

Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.
(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)

You excel in: Inspiring people

You get along best with: The Question Mark
What Punctuation Mark Are You?

I am not sure I agree on all points said about me, but then again my self-knowldge (which is supposed to be true knowledge) may be limited. Well, if you know me, leave a comment. Perhaps you can make me face facts...

Verbophiles can feed the needy

Since so many of my mates (e.g. you Rob and Piers) like weird and strange words I thought I'd advertise "Free Rice" here.

Free Rice basically tests your knowledge of English words and for every word you get right, the website donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations Food Aid Programme.

So go there, test your vocabulary and do some good!

Free Rice

My best vocab level is 40 so far. Not bad for a stupid Kraut, is it? But can you beat it?

Happy Birthday, Alice Cooper!

Happy 60th to the Coop!

Thanks to Markus who wanted the Trash album for his birthday in 1989 I got introduced to Alice Cooper and now co-own all his albums (together with my brother) and always enter him in the "favourite artist" section in questionaires.

Unbelievable that he is already 60, particularly considering his stage show. Most 30 year olds would struggle to perform like him. I sincerely hope he honours his promise to retire no earlier than six years after Mick Jagger and that he'll tour in Germany soon. If you have never seen him live make sure to go. It's a real good night out as can be seen here.
