(I realize we're talking about the German STATE spying on its own people, which is different. My MIL lived in East Germany and tells stories of how you never knew which of your neighbors or friends was passing info on to the state.)

Germans spy on Germans...what else is new? It's a piece of national pride to know everything about your neighbor...except when they die watching TV and nobody finds them for 16 years. It seems that every time I hear about one of those happening, 9 out of 10 times it's in Germany...

Last winter I stepped out my front door and smelled gas and called NSTAR and they came out with a truck and detectors and the whole lot. They smelled it too, but the concentration wasn't high enough to call it an emergency, so they put me on a repair list. Two weeks later I come home to find the street in front of my house spray painted by DigSafe and a note on my door saying I need to be home the next day. They came, ran a liner in the pipe from the main to my house, connected it inside, and were gone. No more gas smell.
Then they came 2 months later to replace my meter (which they do every 7 years).
