The other day I learned there's something called "Luftverbrauchssteuer", literally "air use tax".
If you add something to a building exceeding a certain height beyond your roof, you have to pay a tax, as you occupy a certain amount of air. And there's a tax on that.

Thanks to this video by John Green I learned a new and possibly better way to tie my shoe instead of using double knots!

Four decades of my life wasted ... :facepalm:

Hmmmmh - I possess my peoples' innate aptitude for opening beer-bottles with practically anything lying around (actually, it's just visualizing the forces & a firm grip), but I've never heard of this one.

This is unacceptable - I shall not rest until I have mastered the wedding ring, for the glory and honour of the Fatherland!

I had not known until a lecture yesterday at a 50th anniversary event just how little popular support the Apollo program had. 26% in 1964, and still only in the 30s by Apollo 8.
