Yes, I did, a couple of times. Once I got lost for a while, everyone just disappeared. That parking under the glacier is interesting, always some exotic license plates, once there was a plate of American forces in Germany. Of course I'm also exotic with my Slovenian plates.

Ofcourse they disappear because of global warning. The difference is that it's a debate whether humans cause it or not. Glaciers disappeared even before we started to stuff CO2 in the air. the Netherlands was even covered by glaciers, but retreated long before humans developed industries.

Sorry, I should've been clearer, I of course meant the global warming that is caused by humans

Ok, I jsut used a cloth with warm water to clean the crashbarrier, luckily it got shinier and the cloth got black, so dirty the crashbarrier was, I am happy that the crashbarrier only is dirty, not faded out, but still, eastern there will be a renweing of the paint, hopefully a specia paint which is even more durable.

Ofcourse the balcony railing, who is crashing there, birds and insects, birds are landing on it sometimes. your railing is not shiny, but I think you donīt care how it looks.

I wonder, if the balcony crash barrier is strong enough to back off insects.

Here in America we use concrete "Jersey barrier railings" on our decks, for the bugs to crash against.

Balcony railing isn't meant for bugs anyway, but so you don't fall from the balcony, I think it's quite clear.

The only who crashes in there is Radi, when he slips on his supersmooth balcony

There are some dinner guests here tonight, I thought we have couscous or sth. When I'm home alone, I mostly go for an easy microwave meal (though we don't have a microwave ), and create the least dish as possible. I'm lazy

I haven't used my microwave/oven yet for dinner. Only to defrost some bread. I don't like microwave meals, though they're easy. It's also expensive, I usually spend no more than 1 euro on a dinner when I'm cooking myself. It takes me no longer than 20 minutes to cook

I still live at my parents' place, so I don't have to pay for it myself

Still, I sometimes cook when I'm home alone. Potatoes are not too difficult to cook
