Setting Priorities Over Reality

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 19, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

I read in the German news today that seven children lost their parents in one single crash on a highway here. Someone lost control of their vehicle, possibly hit a small patch of ice which hadn’t been cleared away properly, and destroyed a complete family. Screenshot Source: Twitter / AP Oddities And then I read […]

Seriously Guys: A Snowflake!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 13, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s easy to understand those who make fun of the panic which arises every single year during the surprise outbreak of winter. You’d think most people had managed to grasp the concept of seasons, how the weather changes from rain to snow to fog to an occasional hint of sunshine. Sadly it doesn’t appear to […]

A Sausage By Any Other Name

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 28, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’ve come across bureaucratic nonsense many times over the few years I have been in Europe, fortunately seldom in my own case although, well, it’s bound to happen eventually. I still recall reading of the (in)famous Welsh Dragon case: a sausage company in Wales was informed by the local council that they could no longer […]

Anis Amri Is Dead: Now The Work Begins

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The news that Anis Amri, the terrorist suspected of driving a lorry into the Christmas market in Berlin, is dead came from Italy and spread very quickly through the media. For many this is good news; a terrorist has been eliminated and cannot strike again. For others it is merely the beginning, and the trail […]

Terrorism: The Passage Of Information

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 21, 2016 in News & Opinion |

We are going to be overwhelmed with a wealth of information in the next few days, and all of it information after the fact which was available before the fact. This has been the case in so many terrorist attacks worldwide, so many crimes, that it is almost parr for the course that we learn […]

News Media And Terrorism: Verify First!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Yesterday evening a large lorry drove into a crowd of Christmas market visitors in Bremen. Latest reports say that twelve people died and about fifty were injured. I followed the news live on Twitter, and especially the news coming from those people so far away from the course of events that they could have no […]

Halloween: The Big Let-Down

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 31, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I may well not say it, but I certainly think it every year: Halloween was a let-down. Halloween in Germany, at least outside of the big cities, is boring. I am sure there are plenty of parties and theme nights amidst the bright lights, but here, well, no. In fact, I have hardly seen a […]

How Do You Feel About Cyclists?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 24, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The local bicyclist association is at it again. They are promoting their sport and leisure activities as much as the safety of bicycle riders without looking at both sides of the coin. In recent weeks they have been promoting a questionnaire put out by the government about how friendly towns and cities are for people […]

Sex, Donald Trump And Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 22, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

The headline, no matter which languages you may understand, is clear: Is Donald Trump a Sex Monster? With the recent revelations surrounding the candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America and his sexual leanings, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the international press has also hit upon the many […]

Pensions: Planning For The Future?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Back home, and I still refer to the United States as home even having lived here for so long, many people worry about their 401K and the future. In European countries there is little need, since most have automatic pension plans for workers with contributions being taken straight out of their monthly wage packets. In […]
