Germany is a funny old country. I love living here and I love the people but it’s still a funny old place. The Germans are nuts about their data protection and things like google street view just send them potty, as you can see (you’re not allowed to look at this house):
Well a law has been passed in order to protect children and it affects bloggers. Anyone who publishes stuff online must either stick to a “sender time” (how the fuck that’s supposed to work I have no idea – I mean, there’s no such thing as time online – which is why I always greet you with a good morning, good afternoon and good evening) or we have to put an age rating on all of our posts (which I can’t be bothered to do). How fucking daft is that?
I’ve know idea how they intend to enforce this. I bet they don’t either. All I know is that there’s going to be a hell of a lot of lawyers running around the web tying to earn some cash off the back of this.

I really can’t be bothered to go through all of my blogs and age rate them so I’m taking them down. Or locking them up. Or something.
Here’s a nice video from my youth (warning you must be over 12 years old to watch this clip. Could you please scan your passport and send it to me per mail before you watch it. Thank you).
So that’s it really. No more twitter stalking, no more sitting on the toilet, no more tweet readings, no more ranting and no more silly stuff. By the end of the year it will all have disappeared.
