I just heard on the radio that in Deutchland (today) that when a baby is born the parents have to submit the name of the baby and have it approved by the government. AAAND that the name of the baby has to already be in use by someone else, AAAND has to be sex specific (not gender specific but SEX, yes that is the correct word) meaning a boys name for a boy and a girls name for a girl,AAAND even if you are from another country that name has to be in use in THAT country.
AAAND if you have a hyphenated last name (two last names) that the literal translation will be "Bob Helmut son of Gunther Rall and Heidi Kraus" or something like that.

How accurate is this? Is this true. I am VERY curious.

Wish they had that law for skallies and rock stars/famous people. Then they would stop torturing their children with stupid names like tinkerbell fifi and Cruz for a boy. lol

How about Frank Zappa's names for his kids: Moon Unit and Dweezel? I think it is a for sure assumption that kids with names like that will be future customers of psychotherapists.

This joke has several alternate punchlines. One of my favourites is: "Why do you ask these questions, Broken Rubber?"

Here's a good John Wayne joke: Have you heard about the new toilet paper for sale on reservations? It's called "John Wayne." It's tough, has true grit and won't take s*&t off an Indian.

It's a similar procedure in Sweden. I am not familiar with the exact requirements, but the name has to be approved (or, rather, it mustn't be disapproved - I can imagine only one or two names are annually). I believe the child gets its personal ID number at birth and must be named within three weeks.

Well, i'm from Germany and i don't know the exact procedure either. But i believe they simply try to apply the common sense that some parents obviously don't have. I don't think the rules are as strict as it sounds here, but if you try to name your kid Osama Bin Laden (i'm not making that up, some turkish parents really tried to call their kid like this over here. it was on the news, too) or stuff like that, they will not allow it. They just don't allow names that are bound to cause the kid trouble later on in their lives.

Well, i was lucky. My name's Patrick (though Irish, a typical German name in these days btw.) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Looks worse than it is.
I was on a one lane highway, out and about on business, when the guy who hit me was coming from the opposite direction and swerved into my lane. I had just enough time to not get hit head on. One foot to the right and I might not have walked away.
My first real accident.
We ended up about 100m from each other. Dont know what his problem was.
And to think I was this close [-] to not leaving home to go anywhere.
Thank God for insurance.

Forget the car dude, as long as you're ok! My dad was in a pretty serious car accident back in September. He was hit on the passenger side of his "Outback", with such force and speed, his car flipped over. He had his left hand outside the vehicle, gripping the roof above the window to support himself as the car rolled. As a result, the vehicle rolled over my Dad's hand, severing his pinky finger on the spot, and subsequently causing the amputation of his ring finger in a recent surgery. My Dad still has one more surgery left, early next week, to remove and clean up the remaining dead skin. He also needs extensive theropy for his hand, which he has already started.
Although this is bad, my Dad (thanks to seatbelts and the grace of God) is alive and except for his left hand, well! Had my Mom been with him at the time, there is a good chance she would not have survived! It is funny how a single instant can change your life forever. Anyway man, glad you're ok! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks guys.

Yes, I was very lucky.

No I dont have any pics of the other guys car because the highway patrol trooper that took the report wouldnt let me. I dont know why. When I asked why I couldnt, he just said it is not any of my business. I didnt argue with him. I didnt feel like it.

Just have to say, too €" I€m so sorry that happened, but sure grateful you€re all right, Gunner.
A €˜New York Minute€ can change a lot of €¦ things€¦

State Troopers are not like Metro and Township cops, etc.
As a rule, they€re pretty bright, very-extensively trained and always professional.
I€ve met quite a few Troopers in my life, and never met one I didn€t like (not one from any of a dozen States).

It€s always possible some shmoo slithers through a crack somewhere, but it€d be hard to manage with the SHP, and wouldn€t last long as a Trooper.

I can€t think of any other reason why taking a photo on the scene would be problematic, other than concern that such be somehow misused later for insurance fraud, etc€¦
Who knows?

Just glad you€re safe & sound, Gunner€¦
Now don€t do that anymore€¦ http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

THis is true, or at least it was. My mother was to be named Christel, but it was not recognized by the government so her official name was Krista. Everyone still called her Christel though. It's not a bad idea though. I have problems, taking people with stupid names serious.
