    [–] Woman cuts in like, other women isn't having it. n1c0_ds 5 points ago in PublicFreakout

    I don't understand why bars don't have a queue like any other service counter.

    [–] Woman cuts in like, other women isn't having it. n1c0_ds 2 points ago in PublicFreakout

    I'd just chuckle, because while you were thinking of a comeback, I was studying the blade.

    [–] Difficult to find people for simple office jobs? n1c0_ds 2 points ago in berlin

    Badly written job ads, which gives too much aspiration crap about the company, and not enough specifics about what the company does exactly, and what specifically the role does

    Every damn time

    [–] Difficult to find people for simple office jobs? n1c0_ds 1 points ago in berlin

    When they gloat about this, I treat it as a red flag. If they think it's impressive, it worries me a bit.

    Yep, that would be a typical HR blunder. They might also have thrown in some absurd requirements that disqualify good candidates.

    [–] Interpreter in Berlin for auslanderbrode n1c0_ds 4 points ago in berlin

    Kathleen Parker from Red Tape Translation or Johanna Sieben from c/o Germany. They will go with you and also check your documents. They are real Ausländerbehörde veterans and know a ton of little secrets.

    I frequently turn to them for related advice. Johanna came with me at my last visa appointment.

    [–] Fined in the Ubahn while covered by a valid ticket. Managed to get the fine cancelled, but what the fuck. n1c0_ds 1 points ago in berlin

    Last time I brought this up, someone linked to an answer where they showed it was a better, cheaper option than turnstiles.

    [–] Berlin streets make a statement n1c0_ds 20 points ago in berlin

    That thread is a shitshow. Y'all have fun, I'm taking the night off.

    [–] What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people? n1c0_ds 1 points ago in AskReddit

    It helps if you set reasonable goals for yourself. I am the same, but when it happens I just treat it as a speed bump. It probably means that I need a better book or more practice. If you give it up at that moment, it's really hard to pick it back up later.

    [–] What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people? n1c0_ds 1 points ago in AskReddit

    It's nice as something you occasionally sprinkle on top of creative hobbies or outdoor activities, but if it becomes a habit, it really gets in the way of doing meaningful things.

    [–] What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people? n1c0_ds 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Doing something as a job is a completely different business. I love programming but work nearly killed my passion for it.

    [–] What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people? n1c0_ds 3 points ago in AskReddit

    That's a really nice way to phrase it. The difficulty isn't practicing, it's failing time and time again before you feel sorta good at it.

    [–] What is something most people need to hear but no one has the guts to tell people? n1c0_ds 3 points ago in AskReddit

    You sometimes love the idea of the result more than the process. Sure I'd like to be a buff dude but I sure as hell don't enjoy going to the gym enough for that.

    On the other hand some hobbies just stick, and practicing them make total sense even though the results come later. Likewise I just got a guitar and I'm itching to practice every day.

    Back in university we were all invited to a welcome speech and I remember how the speaker stressed on the important of internal motivation vs external motivation. If you're here for the money or the prestige, you'll have a hard time. If you genuinely loved engineering, it would be difficult, but it would feel natural.

    I used to struggle with that, until someone pointed out that they wouldn't ask you if you couldn't say no. Moreover, I never thought any less of people who told me no.

    [–] Getting bored is the best thing we can do for our brain n1c0_ds 2 points ago in digitalminimalism

    I got started again. I got the idea from a podcast guest that described drawing as the art of noticing. I bought pens I like and started doodling in a notebook instead of using my phone. I carry the whenever I go out alone.

    I also started fiddling with a guitar at home instead of immediately jumping on reddit.

    I won't claim any medical benefits, but it's nice to work on a skill instead of just consuming media. As someone who's addicted to the internet, it's a step in the right direction.

    [–] Is it possible to switch from private health insurance to Basistarif? n1c0_ds 1 points ago in germany

    Would you pay the equivalent of the maximum contribution, regardless of your income?

    [–] What is the next "big thing"? n1c0_ds 5 points ago in investing

    Yeah, that's why he's looking to invest

    [–] Bernie Sanders unveils plan to raise corporate tax rate to 35% and ban stock buybacks n1c0_ds 3 points ago in investing

    Most Germans work normal work weeks. All Germans get 4-6 weeks off and affordable healthcare though. University is nearly free, and you can crack a beer open nearly anywhere.

    It's a completely different way of running a country, and GDP alone isn't the best wsy to compare the result.
