It smells bad everywhere, it's nothing specific to the u8. Take whatever S bahn, tram, ubahn.. they all smell like there's a dead skunk in there

The U8 does seem to have a bit stronger odor and a few more strange people on average than the other lines. Its the only one I really feel genuinely uncomfortable on especially on the weekends

I'm not sure how can I put this into words but Berliners like to (over)use words like "cool" and "sexy" when referring to the city. But in reality all I can think is the word LAME. Berlin is LAME, filled with lame people, lame places, lame jobs. Natives often say the city is vibrant and freedom is a top priority of its citizens but it's not, they do what they do because of boredom. Because they have literally nothing better to do with their lives. Nothing better to do than do some cheap butt drugs waiting for their lives to end. LAME.

Berlin has to be the most Over rated city in the world. Its not pleasant, it certainly is not cool, its ugly, bleak and no one has any money. its great if you like hanging out in 24 hour dingy and i mean DINGY bars with ugly people and fine if you want to be off your face on drugs all the time. But failing that and if you have a brain and can see through the fakeness of Berlin you will find it a lifeless soulless and desperate city YUCK

So here is my story: I came to this city / country because they offered me a visa, money and an awesome place to work in tech, a hot spot in tech and the promise of a diverse, safe and nice place to live in. What I got: Half of the money I was promised, an awful city where I was mugged by neo-nazis... TWICE and a workplace where half the coders can't even ... well ... code. All the other tech companies are basically the same with a few exceptions (I can only think of one actually). I am leaving in 3 weeks for a place where I'm going to earn 6X more. I hate this city.

the problem is their is no discourse with Germans with each other.If a nationality is so fractured economically and politically then what chance do outsiders have?Honest to god Germans have had 70 years to get immigration into a coherent functioning culture.And due to a pervasive castrated terror change is impossible.It is in effect Nazi doctrine in reverse...The most astute forward thinking and imaginative will leave the rest behind.And that is the case for Germans.Incapable of foresight.bitter.and spiteful. No chance at all in contemporary culture.

Am I the only one who hates all these homeless punks in the Sbahn, with a beer in their hand and a sexual act dog ? People talking all day about work ? Strange vintage clothes ? Angry old people in the public transport ?
There was an interview with a german artist I think and he said, that Berlin has nothing to do with Germany ... there are soo many different cultures here OMG ... I don't want to sound like a rasist, but this city is broken up.

I definitely understand your point, but I can't agree with all of it. I don't think having people of different cultures is a problem, the problem is when these people 1. can't treat others with respect 2. are socially isolated and badly integrated, thus having their own corners and parts of the city and end up rivalling against other ethnic groups and have nothing to do with people outside their groups. I feel bad for the dogs of homeless people, and I really can't be mad at them either - if you look at Berlin's system, it's almost expected that people end up so miserable they just waste all their money on alcohol or worse, ending on the streets. And if they had enough financial resources, they just grow old and angry like those people in the subways. I'm sure you didn't mean to sound racist, but I really believe that this site wasn't made for people to hate on specific ethnic groups (whether German or anything else), but rather to give frustrated people a platform thats devoid of the pretentious hype thats going on in the city. I just think its important to differentiate and reflect on these things sometimes.

yes Iam a high profile artist and off the record most of my non german high profile artists think the same. Problem is they are too weak minded worried that they will fall out of the media circus and use the Berlin artist poop to fool the dickheads from boring places in europe to make cash from them. Berlin is a boring ugly cold, idiot reason being why all of the very top Artists and Djs stay in America when they can or London, those that have been already making top dollar for a while before the social media hype. Dont get me wrong Berlin was once an ok place to go out and party and live there for cheap, thats all gone, there arent any real decent cheap places to live and the clubs most of the time are the same as any other city ive been too, and the Art scene is really Crap for a Capital so called Major European city its terrible. So go for 3 months in the summer, and make sure you have a return ticket to somewhere else.

Thing is if you broke down the so called scene down and those so called people running the music scene were sent back home to their pooping small towns in europe or back home to Israel, or other non important places they would be revealed to be the insignificant talentless trouble causing turds they are.

never a good idea to post things like this on social media you can be easy targets of lunatics like right-wing friends (now more than ever on the rise in Europe), it is better to be anonymous so people can keep it real.

besides, a bigger audience =/= good/better. what's wrong with it the way it is now? i think the audience will eventually grow naturally when people search for this kind of stuff. why the rush? and no offense, but it really feels like this typical german capitalist thought of "more growth, more efficiency". don't you think this site's audience chooses itself?

Here's the truth about Berlin, which is a sick clown show of a city:

1. Cost of living being low... Yeah, might be lower than other cities, but the wages are really low, unemployment is very high. The city lives off of tourism but at the same time hates tourists. Natives still have that East German mentality. Be prepared to meet level 10/10 tools such as Marxist "expats" who complain about gentrification as if they somehow have native rights to Berlin or something.

2. Germans will call you a foreigner if you're brown, even if you were actually born and raised in Berlin. Germans invite hoards of immigrants to their country, then like to complain about it or call 2nd 3rd generation children of migrants "foreigners" This is the German way of being multicultural. This is why immigrants do not integrate. There are also probably too many of them for them to really "integrate". More like take over. Also, you can't speak like this in Germany, everyone is paranoid about stating the obvious because it might sound "racist". The German psyche is a radical combination of extreme xenophobia and extreme white guilt/nazi guilt.

3. At the same time, yes it's nice to have so much falafel and doner etc to eat (which btw, also gets boring) but large parts of Berlin will look and feel like Bagdad. Lots of thirsty ME & North African EVERYWHERE who have a staring problem. If you're female you have to constantly avoid accidentally looking at them, because they may take it as a sign of interest. Looks like a gender imbalance sometimes.

4. Really lame party scene. Believe me. Cheesy techno clubs with poop music, boring butt people, and most of the bars are mind numbingly boring. People go out and just sit around smoking and drinking, having no facial expressions, looking like a monotonous robot and hardly even smiling. few people are laughing having a good time or dancing. Most boring nightlife I've ever seen. Yes they do have some cool looking places but the people are so boring. Go to a few bars and clubs and you'll be thinking the same thing.

5. poop arts scene. Just a lot of really bad art everywhere, goofy people who enjoy the smell of their own farts because they cobble together some type of creative existence in Berlin, lots of pretentious tools.

6. poop startup scene. Lots of Macbook laptop toting techie Spock hipsters everywhere. Less annoying then the artsy types but the techie Spocks will get on your nerves as well.

7. It's difficult to meet anyone in Berlin who is laid back, funny, easy to talk to, warm and not boring, without a weird complex and not pretentious. If you do they're probably a tourist or haven't been in Berlin long.

8. Deranged homeless, beggars etc everywhere. You're going to encounter at least a dozen of them as soon as you step out. They're just part of berlin's gritty "sexy but poor" ambiance I guess, right up there with the smell of piss permeating everywhere, poop graffiti everywhere, etc. Berlin is a sick clown show.

9. I could write more but you get the idea.

Berlin techies aren't really techies. Most tech meetings never come back to Berlin. Soundcloud loses more than 30M every year and the best talent that arrives to the city leaves in 1 year or less. I just wanted to weigh in in that matter. The rest is true of course.

All he could say was that the door knobs were bad quality!! And this cheered him up!
