Truth (or may I call you Ugly? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> ):
Oh sure, people call me ugly all the time and they don't even know my nick.
A couple years ago I was in Munich "for work" and the train system was amazing. It didn't seem necessary to have a car there, which was cool.
I remember all the Mercedes, and it was strange because those things seen as elite cars here, thanks to all that evil marketing voodoo we're bombarded with every day. But even the police cars were Mercedes there. They're as common as Fords here.
Too bad the beer sucked. Germans really need to figure out how to make good beer. And chocolate, too. Yuck.
Do I really need to add a smiley to that?
