Comment Re: Poor on $100k? Sure (Score 1) 805

I live in Munich, Germany now and the cost to OWN a home here is ridiculous. Then again, Germans tend to rent -- a statistic is saw had ~36% of Germans owning their own home while in the US it's ~65%. My rent is reasonable for what I have compared to where I moved from (Boston area). However, home prices are quite a bit higher. AND Munich is going through a hell of a housing boom -- they're building like mad.

I plan on getting one of these to replace my October 2011 MacBook Air

Q: Why did NASA switch to Sprite?
A: They couldn't get 7 up.

(Awful, I know.)

I was in 6th or 7th grade -- the middle school was doing mini-week (different curriculum for the week) and my group went on a field trip to somewhere local and I didn't hear about the disaster until the late afternoon. I was stunned. I clearly remember that day.
