I felt secondhand embarrassment watching Mr Schue in The Spanish Teacher. Remember when he used to be cool?

I was at my friends house from 3pm-7pm, to study for math, came back and finished my social change presentation.
My approach for the presentation, since I don't really have the time to prepare my talk very explicitly, is that I'll make my talk very short and then I'll just hand out a text, where it basically says:

Childless people above 22 years have to pay higher rates for the nursing care insurance.
I'll have them read it, then I'll show this statistic (Childless in Germany):



Then - considering this - I'll ask them, whether they think that this way (by increasing rates) of dealing with the demographic change is appropriate.
And if they think it isn't, what they're thoughts about possible approaches are.

Tadaa - they'll have to do most of the talking and I'm off the hook Wink

Since I have no fasion sense whatsoever I went for the most boring pair

I'm with you eli, I don't understand why there isnt a bidet in every bathroom of this world. Probably what I hated the most about hotels in USA.

lulz I think I can count the times I have seen a bidet in germany on one hand ROFL
My problem in London are the public sanitary installations - because mostly you don't even want to get anywhere near them - they just look horrible.

Problem in NY: The States have a 110 Volt power sytsem - most others (including us europes) have 220V - it was just awesome when I plugged my hair straightener in and aside from the light glowing very dimly, nothing happened.

So, whenever I visit Italy, I'll be expecting a lot of bidets Laughing

EDIT: Oh, also when I was in NY, the toilets always looked like they are flooded to me.
Really, on my first day I was like: SHIT - either you broke something or this was already broken, why is there so much WATER??!?

EDIT²: ALSO I just remembered - they work differently, first all the water in it was 'sucked' out and then it was refilled. yahoo It was all just very strange
lulz I guess, I'm making a total fool out of myself right now, but this really fascinated me Laughing

how's the water sucked out? I thought all toilets worked the same scratch

and YOU, people without a bidet in your life, just think about this: what's cleaner: water + soap or toilet paper? mh? MH?

I thought so, too - that's why I was a bit freaked out Laughing
The toilets I used to know, would just 'flush' the toilet with water.
But there when you push the button, firstly all the water disappears (I guess down the same way, everything else goes) and then it's refilled with water. Laughing

And like I said: the water-level was a lot higher, than I was used to... god this discussion is so strange Laughing

I had to google what a bidet was. hash I've never seen one before in my life.

And yeah, I know North American toilets use a lot more water, but we're decadent that way. tongue

I've traveled a bit and pee'd in a lot of toilets, but I can honestly say I've never given it much thought. Laughing.. Ok maybe one time in thailand, but it's normal to miss something more than a hole in the floor right?!

Fun fact: in italian a toilet is called "water". In english.

And I'm a pro in peeing into holes on the ground, I got a lot of practice on trains.
