Does anyone else's skin burn after taking a shower? I always thought the water contained a lot of calcium, but maybe it's something else?

its a light antidepressive added to the water since 1986, to reduce the ambition and desires of the general populace in order to prevent mass discontent and ensure a steady supply of compliant subjects for menial jobs.
Just don't drink it and you'll be fine.
(it is also lightly acidic, and responsible for the 'weathered' look of most Berliners, and the discomfort you're experiencing)

Now my kid is afraid to walk past the place.
Went back a couple of days ago to propose that the employee who screamed at us might apologize to my son, and he could apologize for walking away with her pillow. She was so insulted at the prospect, that she called the police.

Could you tell us the whole story? Although the idea of a 3y/o shoplifter is hilarious enough by itself (I'm so glad that I no longer live in that city)

Where do I even begin?

The poop in the streets (not always even dogs', mind you), the lack of any culture, the cheapskate attitude, the lazy punks all over the place, the slob lifestyle, the mediocrity everywhere, in everything, the darn Wall and the history they can't get over, the way they just love all USSR poop leftovers (I'm Russian and we got over it)… The stinky and insanely loud techno-loving clubs that claim to be "the best clubs in town". The retarded hipsters and hipster places that charge you three times the price just for being "ultra-hip", i.e. being just another dump with graffiti all over it, the Club Mate piss and its lovers, the what they call "freedom" which is actually anarchy, the drinking on the subway, the ignorance of Berliners who want tourists that speak German (and the poop Berlin version of the language at that), the hairdressers that have no idea what they are doing and still manage to charge you 100.- euros for messing up your hair, the lack of fresh air in Mitte, the arrogant drivers, the retarded cyclists who think they are the centre of the world and don't value their lives at all… The way people dress (style? We don't need no stinkin' style!), the lack of proper jobs apart from poor startups that think they are changing the world from a dump of an apartment while doing something completely useless, and, of course, the Berliners themselves, whether born and raised or those that are not even German but consider themselves such – these are probably the worst, since they tend to "love" the city, which kind of means that they suck as much as the city does. At least the natives didn't have a choice and were born there…

You can enjoy the city for a while, because everything is cheap and accessible, but after a while anyone with half a brain will realise that they've come to an emotionless wasteland of cyborgs pretending to be human.

Run away.

because they are amazed that there is a sky... most had never seen it until Templehof became a park. Winter greyness and tall buildings blocking the view. Have you not noticed that they never look up? They might actually start thinking about the rest of the world.. let 'em keep it. It certainly makes my miserable existence in this shathole city worth living at times.

^^Dont you realize how DEPRESSING that actually is?? An empty space of concrete and grass...makes you happy. It's not like there are miles of skyscrapers in that city, its not as if Berlin is Loud, as if there arent already ENOUGH parks and greenspace. Thats the most ridiculous thing I have ever f**king heard.

My face when I never paid any of those notifications.

The propaganda machine employed by the third reich led millions of people to their deaths. Now we have a government that imposes a flat tax of about 150 Euros per year per household to subsidize the television and radio industries. Beautiful!

What's the deal with having to include a photograph of your face in your CV (resume)? As policy, this promotes racism and other forms of discrimination.

Berlin is a small bubble when it comes to Art...you'll see. Hamburg and Munich are much more lucrative and challenging, Berlin is for those that with no commercial appeal and "easy" Art. It may be appreciated...but it sure as hell wont sell there.

Head to NeuKolln or Wedding or just about anywhere... you might be able to do something with all the discarded cigarette packets, old Doener fleisch bits and non-pfand bottles. Or after a sporting event in Koepeneick or Olympia Stadium, enough garbage to supply a team of full timers. Better yet, head out to any out of the way park and in the bushes you will find all manner of discarded bits and bobs. If you are daring, Tierpark would supply you with enough used condom wrappers and other related items for a years work.

Hilarious, N-a. Thanks for the tips. As it turns out, I have figured out a wonderful new project. I sprinkle powder made from ground banana chips onto all the dog poop on the sidewalks and wait for the next dog to come by and eat it. Then I follow that dog until it poops, and I repeat the process. Of course it's all documented on video. I call this piece "Dogs Eating Each Others' Poop" and I think it's going to be a big big hit.

Berlin could be lovely, we just need to change a few things:

Move it out of Brandenburg to somewhere nice
Replace a few of those hideous buildings
Add some history which giant just ww2 and its consequences
