      Please add more noises like those dings, bangs, toks etc. It makes the video so engaging and hilarious for all of us millennials; it appeals to the water that we have in our heads instead of brains. Also please speak more in a random, over-excited cadence as it is easier to understand and makes the video so excitingly exciting and oh so bro-ey! And please, please, please never make the blunder of showing photographs of anything you talk about. Instead, get a spastic fellow who is having a seizure to illustrate it by holding a ketchup bottle. And make the while video more exciting by having words appear all over the video suddenly, hiding your faces. Two left thumbs u from all of us millennials!

    I know in America there isn't a direct fee just to use the bathroom in stores and restaurants. But you're telling me you guys never went into a place that told you you can't use the restroom unless you are a paying customer. In other words you basically have to pay to take a piss. I mean it's not very common everywhere in the US but you telling me that's never ever happened to you guys?

    far right on the autobahn is mostly used by trucks (lkws) and the middle one for normal cars that wont go that fast and yes, the left one is for the crazy fast people or if you want to overtake one infront of you :D

    Though in the 99% of houses "without air conditioning" people use wood or oil or gas for heating (in ovens which they fire whenever they need to heat up the apartment/house). The more modern way would be the Elektroheizung, basically heating using electricity. That's what we use at home for example. You got a second electric meter and a second cost accounting then. You can make your settings so it heats up automatically or turn it completely off like in summer when you don't need it.
    The white "heating box" you showed in your video is called "Heizkörper". It is basically the part of the heating through which the heat is delivered to the room. Other possibilities would be Deckenstrahler (ceiling spotlights used for heating) or Fußbodenheizung (underfloor heating, which is used very often for example in bathrooms).
    On the other hand, when it gets too hot in the house/apartment, Germans would most likely turn the heating off, close all shutters over the day (so that the sun can't heat up the apartment) and then open the windows widely in the evening when it's colder outside. This technique is most likely used in bedrooms. Newer houses in Germany do usually have a very good Dämmung (insulation), older ones often have thicker walls- therefore they don't heat up that fast anyway. Though at a certain point of the year, heating gets shut down completely until like September/October or even longer, depending on the weather and temperatures outside.
    All in all, there are soo many ways to keep your apartment (and your brain) in a good temperature. In most cases, air conditioning is not necessary at all.

    For the speed limit thing you can get a navigation system that tells you when there is a blitzer nearby or if you turn on the radio some will tell you where a blitzer is

    Lol. Dummies. I’m American and i knew these things. Same with Mexico. No ac some places. They close on holidays but people still work somehow. Restrooms not free. have to talk to the waiters to get their attention. A lot of other countries are the same. No Free water at restaurants? Wheeeet? Cars are wayyyyyy to small in Europe than USA. We are privileged. So let’s be thankful.

You have for sure some left overs from shopping the day before?🤔 (sorry my English sucks since English isn't my first language)

    4:35 This is, because many houses are very old and keeps the warm air stays outside, so inside it is often cooler ( I mean the english meaning for this word!) than outside.
