      You don't have to pay for using the bathroom. They (janitors) ask for money bc they keep maintenance on the bathrooms. It's out of courtesy. And... There is no ac bc you don't need it.

    Nur amerikanische Weicheier brauchen Air Condition. Und die Heizung haben wir auch nur, damit das Wasser nicht in den Rohren gefriert. Die Heizung wird nicht angemacht, wenn es nicht nötig ist: Der Schwabe spart das Geld, der Norddeutsche macht den obersten Knopf vom Hemd zu.

    It does not just help keep the public bathrooms clean, but also the people cleaning them get a better payment. Sometimes there are people (who clean the bathrooms, not random people) sitting in front of the bathrooms with a plate, happens in fast-food-restaurants and shopping centres a lot. You can give them as much change as you want, but are also not forced to give them anything. It's a little extra money they can get and I like giving them some, because it's like appreciating that they clean up after all the people are done with their dirty business.

    Some of the things you mentioned are simply wrong or misleading. 1. There are public toilets for free. Just the majority of toilets on the highways aren’t. 2. We don’t need air conditioning since it is cold most of the time -> Doesn’t make sense to purchase one

    Why do you hate Blitzers?
    I mean, it's only 20-60€. This stops almost nobody from speeding. At least in Germany. So if you go as fast as the people in Germany, you will most likely get a ticket for speeding.

    Und in Amerika gibt es genug Stromausfälle wegen den ganzen Klimaanlagen.
    Ein Blitzer ist dazu da, das Menschen nicht zu schnell fahren und weniger Unfälle geschehen.
    Links überholen hilft auch Unfälle zu vermeiden.
    Für Toiletten bezahlt man, um den Menschen ein Trinkgeld dazulassen, die deine scheisse wegwischen.
    Und Sonntag Geschäfte geschlossen zu halten liegt wohl daran, dass man den Menschen noch eine Möglichkeit gibt, Zeit mit der Familie zu verbringen.
    Dieses Video ist echt das dümmste was ich jemals gesehen habe.

    6:18 in Germany we call it “Rechtsfahrgebot“ wich means that you should always drive on the right hand side and the left hand side is only for passing slower cars. Also important thing: on the most Autobahnen (german for Highways) on the very right hand side is a lane that ist bordered with a full wight line. That’s a line that ONLY can use police cars and ambulances etc. DONT drive there!!

    blizters sound like hell... my mom pretty much drives 30 over the speed limit over the day, and has never gotten a ticket before, because to her, driving laws only apply when cops are around. Then again, we live in rural south, in a trailer park so there really isn’t a lot of police, the police even ignore the drags right by the trailer park, and it’s pretty much a fuck fest of illegal activity. Drugs, prostitution, drag racing etc., it’s insane

  • KillaKommie ForyaMommie

    Okay oh, it isn't because you kids are so young, like just completely ignorant. It is illegal in the US to pass in the right-hand Lane, too. Just because you have never been given a ticket, doesn't mean it isn't the illegal. I guarantee you, if you're passing someone on in on the right, and a traffic accident results oh, you will be cited as the responsible party!

  • KillaKommie ForyaMommie

    When I was a kid, in America, through the 1970s, almost all public toilets were pay toilets. Your kids are very young.

    You do realize in America you are supposed to stay in the far right lane unless you’re passing right? The left lane is literally called the passing lane in American driving books and im pretty sure if you’re caught driving in the left lane without passing you get punished for it during a license test, I’ve seen cops get behind cars in the left lane, turn their lights on to force the car to pull over to the right lane, then when it does they turn their lights back off and pass the car.

    Paying for the Bathroom “Sanifair” was “invented” because of the hygiene and to financial the cost and hold the hygiene. Anyway you get a ticke what you can use as a voucher in the near stores. It was weird for us too as it came up. Oh an Germans also get spending tickets at hates Blitzer. But if we honest if we get get “geblitzt” we deserve it 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Und auch wenn es auf fremde oft witzig wirkt wenn man auf der autobahn so rasen kann, deutsche und schnell auf der autobahn fahren ist wie Amerikaner und Waffen.
    Beides ist sau gefährlich und kostet Leben, aber will man es weg nehmen rasten alle aus. (Ich würde aber auch nicht langsam fahren wollen)

    the speeds on the Autobahn in germany are only possible because you are only allowed to pass over on the left. if you were allowed to pass over on both sides it would we impossible to have no speed limits. you would have to many accidents. with this rule its pretty safe to drive really fast here...

    Why should people, who come for a one-week vacation and stay in Hotels, know about grocery shopping ? They eat in Restaurants. Restaurants are not closed on sundays.
    And why should they know about the AC of family houses ? They probably never get into one.
    So this might be considered 'fun-facts' but it's not stuff "you need to know".
    How to open a window, might be a good advice for Americans, escpially the 3 positions of the handle. Our replacement for AC. We open the Window (at night)

  • Viv Wallace

    You know for some reason if you don't have too many windows in your house that let all the sunshine in during summer, then you won't feel too hot. Keep the curtains closed from after morning until afternoon and you will be fine.
    But most days it's not that hot here, I think.
    I used to live in China for years and it gets really hot there where I was in summer, much hotter than in Germany I gotta admit, but even if I kept the curtains closed and pulled all the German tricks nothing worked to keep my apartment cool.
    For some reason it works in Germany and I can't explain why. It must be a coincidence of many little things.

    It doesn't normally get hot enough often enough in Germany to absolutely need air conditioning inside the house.
