You said

a terrorist attack per week by your "refugees"

The Syrian who killed a woman was hardly a terrorist attack. They knew each other and it was likely a personal issue due to some argument, and the guy went bonkers. Men killing women, especially their wives or girlfriends unfortunately happens a thousandfold all across the world.
The Afghan in the train attack was not a refugee and the German-Iranian obviously wasn't either, and in fact the latter was a right-wing attack motivated against immigration, and he only killed foreign-looking people.

So, no terrorist attack by a refugee so far.

Alert me when you see something comparable to the Trevi Fountain in "vibrant" Munich

Now you're just trolling... come on. Show me somethign comparable to the Trevi Fountain in London, Stockholm, Dublin...

...cancer-inducing cars

I haven't quite figured it out myself, but from what I heard is that while Diesel exhaust is worse, you need less fuel than with normal gas. So overall you get a net-win in both running costs and environmental impact.

massive increase in wealth inequality as a result of the Haartz reforms

Inequality has increased massively all across the world. Germany is one of the few countries in which it's actually not that bad and there is still a strong middle-class.

a banking system on the verge of bankruptcy

Exaggerating much?

a terrorist attack per week by your "refugees"

None of the recent attacks were perpetrated by a refugee. Also the impact of these incidents on overall society is exaggerated by the media.
Also, I don't see the Turkish immigrants as a problem. Why should I? I'm also sort-of an immigrant myself (not Turkish though).
There are indeed many new and hastily built "ugly" buildings in German cities. The unfortunate consequence of allied carpet bombing. But strange that you should mention Berlin or Munich, which are two of the nicest and most vibrant cities in Europe today.

Some of us aren't quite so keen to live in a Germany-dominated super state

Perhaps you should. Germany is functioning quite well. Very little corruption, low unemployment, booming economy, not as many brain-dead, fear-mongering tabloids as in the UK (just one), healthy multi-party democratic system of federal states, clean cities and pro natural environment policies promoting renewable energy sources, good internet connections, practically no religious bigotry or nationalist extremism... also, not as snobbish and self-absorbed as some of our friendly neighbours... ^_^

We could use some of your sense of humor though.

I'm not basing my post on the "single data point", but on these:

were hit by heatwaves that have become more frequent over the last half-century

Earth is fresh off the hottest six months on record

the warmest June in the modern history and also the 14th consecutive month of unprecedented hotness

Gee, did you not even read the freaking summary?

Meanwhile, conservative America still has its head up its ass insisting that climate change is a liberal conspiracy and evolution the thing of the devil.

Now there's something Saudi Arabia and the US have in common. Love for oil, religious nutjobs and ignorance towards scientific evidence.

The HTC Vive uses a different technology, I don't remember what it was called, but it seems to be more effective at preventing nausea, as I read in many reviews that people tend to experience less nausea using the Vive for long periods than with Oculus.

I own a Vive, and when playing Elite I usually get between 45 and 55 frames per seconds, yet the experience seems entirely smooth to me and I don't get any nausea at all. I find no perceivable difference to playing a game running at 90 FPS.
