As long as you escape without doing something illegal, you won't get an additional conviction for the escaping and authorities will try to find you and put you back in jail to serve the rest of your sentence. In most cases however, it is impossible to escape prison without harming people or property.

Das stimmt.
Solange die Person dabei keine anderen Straftaten begeht (Autodiebstahl, etc.) und solange dabei niemand zu Schaden kommt, muss die Person nur die gesamte restliche Strafe absitzen, und kann nicht wegen guter Führung oder aus anderen gründen vorzeiting entlassen werden.

That is actually correct.
It's just that when you use "wieder kriegen" and have a concrete object like "Poland" or "die Lampe" you often put the "nicht" behind the object.
But the rule is actually correct.

It is not that it is legal to escapae from prison. If you escape they will still hunt you down, but with no extra charges.

Roofies and prostitution are also legal.
And the age of consent is 16 (or 15, i don't remember)
And the age to drink is 16.
Just, just go live in Germany.
Rich history, rich culture, ladies have hella nice boobs, everyone's drunk, borderline legally high...
User avatar #85 to #80 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
Prostitution is legal, but giving somebody Roofies is "gefährliche Körperverletzung", which will get you up to 10 years, but in any case a prison sentence. even if you do not rape your victim or harm it in any other way.

And the age of consent is 14.
(With the exeption that the older person may not be any sort of authority figure: teacher, coach, aso., or be supposed to protect the minor in any way, as well as that the person may not pressure the minor in any way, or else it would be considerd raping a minor in both cases.)

No.

Plus nobody in Germany wants war.

So what?
We do have worker rights guaranteed in our constitution, and have amazing welfare benefits you couldn't even dream of.
And we have a stable economy, and about 1/6th of your muder rate, and less than 1/16th of your gun murder rate, even though here the right to own guns is guaranteed by the constitution. (We just regulate guns strictly)
Here we also have over 3.000.000 small buissinesses, beside the large ones instead of many mega cooporations.
And we are not such a backward society as the USA.

But overall I think that you will enjoy it.
Plus, if there are still language barriers, you could, depending your degree always get a job in e.g. a research group where the language is English.
But almost all Germans speak English.

Well, first of all you should prepare by making sure to apply for all nececary VISAs early
But you should try to get a job beforehand, or at least as soon as possible, but with university degree that will not be a problem.
It will really make geting a VISA easier, and enable you to stay.
But also, once you're here you'll find we don't have walmarts or similar shops, but rather smaller shops and supermarkets.
And the culture is a completely different one.
Plus Germany is by far not as conservative as the USA.
And the taxes will be high.

> Already learning German. Sure it's hard, but i find it a bit easier than Spanish and a lot easier than Hebrew (my ex was Jewish and made me learn some). I definitely don't want to make everyone speak English on my accord though, and hope to have some proficiency before moving.
> I don't mind the taxes. the US has pretty high taxes, and I don't get any return for it (the highway a mile away from my house has been under construction for over 10 years now... and aren't even half done).

Just a quick comment on your welfare situation, my girlfriend is from Germany and she said when she was 20 and without a job, she had the option to get paid around 300 euros a month for an education scheme that also helped you find work. In Britain yuou get £200 a month to work 40 hours a week with no guarantee of a job at the end of it. Stuff like that is why Germany FTW
User avatar #72 to #70 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
They actually raised it to 391€ now.
But it is good.
Although we have the advantage of having a very stable economy, so that the number of unemployed people over all is not that high.

All that other stuff might be true (I don't know contemporary German history or government, and I don't want or need to).
But then you called us a backward society.
You can't expect me not to take offense.
Especially since I don't see how that's true.
#351 to #27 - landcucumber (09/18/2013) [-]
So what? Nothing it's an interesting idea. Most take a different approach to this.
America doesn't do this because the Constitution is to protect the people from the government not other people.
And America actually does have a fairly stable economy, for the most part. This most resent recession wasn't that bad when compared with the rest of the world.
What does murder rate do with anything? Most of these are concentrated in specific areas of the United States. Chicago, Detroit, L.A., big urban populations, and along our border with Mexico. When your people have lots of money Criminals will come to those places to get some. Most murders are among criminals, if you’re not a criminal you’re more likely to be killed by lightning than a gun.
On this one you have to be smoking crack. The 23 million small businesses in America account for 54% of all U.S. sales. Small businesses provide 55% of all jobs and 66% of all net new jobs since the 1970s.
Finally The USA is a backwards nation. Look at you Xenophobe. American Culture dominates the world! You can go anywhere and find American products and culture. How can the dominant culture be the Backwards one? Anyway you’re high, and I know this comment will not have any effect on you. I just had to rage for a sec you nincompoop.

User avatar #370 to #247 - mynameisgeorge (09/18/2013) [-]
Oh, the German Constitution is based on a horribly failed republic that had to dissolve the reichstag every single year because they switched parties too many times?

Is that why they elected someone to be an autocrat in hopes that he'd be like Bismark?

You're a ******* retard if you think that they'd base a constitution on something even the Germans considered to be a horrible failure. The Americans needed a strong trading partner so they wrote constitutions for Germany and Japan (which in some miraculous way, are extremely similar, even though clearly the Germans based it on their failed, short lived republic. /sarcasm)
The Germans were already used to social programs because of Bismark, so those were added. In addition to that America needed to be the economic powerhouse of the Allies, and as any economist will tell you, you do not implement Keynesian economics in a bolstered, post-war economy, which is why it would work in the ruined economies of Germany and Japan, but not in America.

tl;dr You're retarded.

#126 to #27 - anon (09/17/2013) [-]
Yea that's probably because we have over 314 million people living in the US, compared to Germany's 81 million. Also, you probably shouldn't generalize a country based on a single area of it's region. Every area of the US is different

Because the poster is from America.
User avatar #323 to #262 - newforomador (09/18/2013) [-]
Yes, because every single post made by an American that says something about another country must be making fun of it, and the poster must truly 100% believe in what the post said, instead of them just making a joke. Seriously, just because a post involves another country doesn't mean you have to start bashing how bad America is. From your other comments you seem like a polite guy, but you don't need to say how much better your country is just because there was a post that involved it.
User avatar #178 to #27 - alltimetens (09/17/2013) [-]
We're backwards? I get it, you're proud of your country, but the U.S is not a backwards country. Being proud of your country does not mean you can bash other countries. I'm willing to bet that there are many Germans who appreciate America.

We have the largest economy in the world. Out of any country on Earth, the U.S has the most multibillion dollar corporations. Do not compare the EU to the U.S. The EU is a collection of countries, the U.S is one country. It's not like we don't have small businesses, in fact, we have the most small businesses in the world, right behind New Zealand. Our murder rates come from the fact that we don't place gun control laws as a prominent priority. Welfare benefits shouldn't even be granted to bums that don't want to work. Why waste the tax dollars of actual working people? HURR DURR we have de less murderszz... well no ******* **** you have less murders. The U.S is a HUGE country. Do not compare a puny German society to a large American one. Our population is over 4 times that of yours. Not to mention the fact that our population density is huge in certain areas. If you have studied American history, you'd know that the right to own a weapon is one of the amendments (the 4th or 6th. I haven't studied the amendments in years.)
User avatar #194 to #178 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
Your population density is high?
We are 81,8 million people in a country half as big as texas.
And having big companies is not something to be that proud of.
And you only have the most small buissinesses if you count non-emplyers and shell companies.
We have 4,8 million small buissinesses, and you have about 5,5 million, not including non-employers.
And why have a wellfare system? Because capitalism alone is bad. And most poor people want to work.
And in Germany we have a system that is just, and doesn't just waste money.
And the ammendment you mean is the second ammendment.
And you do have an outdated system, that s often more suitable for the 19th century than the 21st. And you have a very conservative society.
User avatar #205 to #194 - alltimetens (09/17/2013) [-]
In addition, we cannot afford to give amazing benefits because we have a large population and therefore our benefits can only go to a certain extent. We do our best, but at the end of the day, like I said, it isn't our #1 priority.
#307 to #205 - johrny (09/18/2013) [-]
Than step up your game! You maybe have 4 times the german population, but why yours don't have 4 times the german benefit rescources?!
Maybe you americans should vote the next time for someone, that isn't paid by the weapon lobby.
Take the money away from the weapon lobby and get your oh so dearly wished benefits
Besides: Didn't Obama tried like a year ago to make a by law ordered health care? But all i heard in the news was: "Uhhh, we have to pay for our health!? Screw you Obama."
Make up your minds!
sorry, my english grammar isn't really the best
User avatar #375 to #307 - alltimetens (09/18/2013) [-]
All I heard was "bla bla bla we're da best country in de world".


Germany is awesome as a country. But all you're doing is comparing what Germany is good at to what the U.S is struggling with. That doesn't make your country any better. Every government leader in history has tried to do something stupid. When Obama tried to do that, we refused and protested. It is almost inevitable for there not to be government officials sponsored by gun corporations because that is what gun corporations do. Just because we have a higher population, does not mean we have to have four times your benefits. These matters don't work proportionally. The U.S does not have enough money to benefit each and every person.
#379 to #375 - johrny (09/18/2013) [-]
Great, than go ahead and tell me abbout the great things of america. I could imagine one and that is the death punishment, what i would love in germany for rape. We could have something like this, but we would have to vote for a nazi like party and that isn't it worth.

User avatar #204 to #194 - alltimetens (09/17/2013) [-]
I said in some areas. I happen to be a New Yorker. Go to Manhattan, and you cannot even move 3 inches to your left without bumping into someone. Most of the U.S is empty with little cities, especially in the middle.
That is the point of small businesses. A small business is any business that does not employ thousands of people and takes in billions or millions of dollars of revenue. Most of NYC is comprised of self-owned businesses. Capitalism is only bad if you misuse the system. Plus, our system is not really outdated. We are granted the several basic human rights, and yet you still act as if we have none. You act as if we don't give benefits to poor people.
The truth is, we do. We just don't put it into our list of priorities, because poor people are 99.99% ******* and crackers who do not/did not want to work, failed school, and are of no use. Conservative societies aren't that bad, as long as it isn't your primary view. I'm willing to be that most people are liberals. The only place where you'll find a strong concentration of conservatives is when you go down south to Texas or Alabama.

Why?
User avatar #223 to #222 - sodaberg (09/17/2013) [-]
the European economic collapse is in parts down to rich countries like Germany forcing a high-value currency on a poorer country like Greece, which makes buying and selling in the poorer country difficult, which really ***** things up.
This has the knock-on effect of generating Neo-nazis in Greece
User avatar #235 to #223 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
We didn't force it.
They wanted to join.
And it doesn't change anything inside the country, but it makes it easier to import, and more difficult to export.
User avatar #239 to #235 - sodaberg (09/17/2013) [-]
Though evidently a country is changed by financial ruin.
You also essentially described the exclusive nature of the EU; nations left outside of it are then screwed by import tax laws. I think "wanting" to join the EU is a euphemism
User avatar #377 to #239 - metalmind (09/18/2013) [-]
Greece never exported much.
And it already had a horrible economy before they got the euro.
I mean their retirement age was 15 years below ours, and they expect to have a good work force?
And they can always leave.
It is just that 78% of the greeks want to keep the Euro.
It is not our fault that they have a ****** economy.
It's their fault.
They set the retirement age to 50. They created the corrupt system.

And let's not forget that they commit tax fraud on such a massive scale that it costs their country over 17 Billion Dollars per year.
And we're at fault that they are bankrupt?
Please.
User avatar #374 to #235 - alltimetens (09/18/2013) [-]
Be completely honest with this question.

Are you imposing a higher currency to Greece because you want to help because Germany and its government are honest people OR is Germany just trying to gain ease of access to goods.
User avatar #376 to #374 - metalmind (09/18/2013) [-]
Well, first of all we do want to help.
Secondly we are tied in with them in one common currency, and Greece failing would lead to a devalutation of the currency.

And again: The people are imposing nothing on greece, they do not nececarily support what the government is doing.

But anyway, I think the austerity measures are far too strict.
I think there should have been some sensible cuts and restructuration in the buerocratic apparatus, and the retirement age sould have been raised from 50 (!) to the German level of 65 or at least to 63.
But they should never have cut healthcare spending or salaries.
You can't save yourself out of a depression. (But our current conservative government doesn't seem to understand that).


But still, greeces' economy grew when it got the euro, it is just reverting to the previous state right now.

*Millions
And also:
You countet "Non-Employers".
Whitch are basically "companies without employees".
Which I didn't count in my statistics.
You have about 5.5 Million buissinesses with employees.
We have over 3 million.
You have 316,7 million people.
We have 81,8 million people.
And "mega cooporations" by the way also own buissinesses.
Plus you have legalized bribery for your politicians.

I would still consider Non-Employers as business as they do contribute to the economy. Where can I pull up the stats of of German Businesses?

And "mega corporations" or conglomerates do own lots of businesses, but they'll almost never be considered small business so there should be little if any damage to the statistics. Unless I'm wrong of course.

I'm not saying our system is perfect. **** , look at Andrew Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller with their vertical and horizontal integration during a time of "laissez faire." But things got improved, Unions were made and they fought( though they can be very stupid and bloated at times ). We are in a constant cycle of self improvement as is any other government so you can't give us so much **** .

Personally I'd like to start a revolution, and I'm pretty sure one will start as soon as the government makes a total ban on firearms( abolish the 2nd amendment )

Oh you forgot the part where Germany invaded my country about 75 years ago.

You might say "Oh well, that was in the past, get over it" but because of ******* Germany invading the Czechoslovakia, USSR came and 'liberated' us for 50 years. Do you know what's it's like with Russia running your country? Russia can't even run their own damn country. We'd probably be considered Western Europe right now if it wasn't for damn WWII. Bring the USA up all you want to make your country look good, but it won't work on me damnit.
User avatar #280 to #274 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, I'll apologize for Germany invading Czechoslovakia the day you apologize for driving out and completely disowning the German minority (which previously made up 20%).
My family on my Grandmothers side came from the Sudetenland.
They never got an apology for having to leave their home, and for beeing completely disowned, and for having to head to Germany with only what they could carry.
And remember that it was WWI that gave you freedom in the first place.
But just like you are in no way responsble for exiling the German minority, I'm in no way responsible for WWII.
User avatar #283 to #280 - meganinja (09/17/2013) [-]
I didn't ask you to apologize. I never held you accountable.

But stop touting how superior your country is to America when your country's done some horrible **** . Sure, mine's done some bad things. But then again in our land's 100 years of freedom, less than half of it has been free. And that's because of Germany and Russia. Ask an East German if they liked the Russians. I think you know what their response will be.

If it is the History that we are juding the I would say that America should not be proud either, seeing how they had a Genocide in which they systematically slaughterd 18 Million Native Americans, which is three times as many victims as the holocaust had.
#344 to #284 - landcucumber (09/18/2013) [-]
Dude come on. you can not compare The holocaust with what happened to native Americans. First most Natives who died died from disease. This started long before america became a country. The number actually killed by "Americans" is not that high there were never many straight out wars with the Tribes, and only a couple of large scale battles. most tribes actually just assimilated into American culture. This took place over hundreds of years not only a few like in Germany. You also have to look at the tribes as many small nations not just one large people (you racist ). there are huge differences between the eastern tribes, the planes nations, and the pueblo people of the south west. due to this there were constant wars among the tribes. It wasn't uncommon for tribes to join the U.S, to fight another tribe. I'm just saying the expansion of the United States is actually an extremely complicated period in history. So well go stick it up your German ass, and if your so great why doesn't the world turn to you whenever someone needs help? Oh yeah that's right you're just a miner regional power.

two country's actions*

can't forget the Russians. Hate those bastards. I don't hate Germans, just what Germany did.
User avatar #291 to #287 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
I don't like what Germany did either, and I'm certainly not proud of it.
But I think everybody is allowed to judge.
User avatar #286 to #284 - meganinja (09/17/2013) [-]
I'm not talking about the holocaust here. I'm talking about how one country's actions ****** Eastern Europe for half a century.
User avatar #290 to #286 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, that's not nice.
But I'm not responsible, and since now the situaion has changed, I think I do get to judge.
User avatar #292 to #290 - meganinja (09/17/2013) [-]
you're not responsible. I never said you were. I'm not personally attacking you. I'm not even attacking your country. But I'm saying I don't think you can say your country has the moral high ground.
User avatar #295 to #292 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, I'm not nececarily saying that my country has the moral highground, but there are many aspects that are better here than in the USA.
User avatar #316 to #295 - meganinja (09/18/2013) [-]
I'd say some. The USA has its good points also.

Remember kids: Bashing America is cruise control for being cool and edgy on the internet!

you're not wrong, but don't pretend you don't have your share of problems.
User avatar #319 to #297 - metalmind (09/18/2013) [-]
Well, we do have some problems.
I think we sometimes are too leniant regarding to some criminal activities, we really need to better ourselves when it comes to gay rights, and we should continue raising the general minimum wages, and we should raise taxes on the rich, and we need to improve our education system.
User avatar #73 to #27 - Mortuus (09/17/2013) [-]
I'm no expert on German politics, but I can only assume that many of the successes you now have are a result of the early 20th century and a desire to never suffer through such hardships again.

What do you think?
User avatar #74 to #73 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
That, I think, is a major cultural factor.
But the other thing is that we alwys valued manufacturing.
User avatar #77 to #74 - Mortuus (09/17/2013) [-]
I didn't mean to insinuate that I believed there to be only one reason for your country's successes. Germany's -- pride, if you will, in manufacturing is a well known factor to its current success, I simply did not touch upon it in my comment due to the fact that it is an apparent reason for your achievements.
User avatar #81 to #77 - metalmind (09/17/2013) [-]
I know that you didn't mean to imply that it was the only reason.
But you were correct that it is certainly a cultural factor that contributes to the success.
User avatar #84 to #81 - Mortuus (09/17/2013) [-]

same thing in belgium

cant punish a man for doing what is human instinct

however they cant hurt anyone in the process of trying to break free, that is punishable though
#15 to #14 - crzylion (09/17/2013) [-]
take into accoun that early release in belgium and germany are HUGE parts of sentence reduction

as in you can try to break out, but itll probably cost you 30% more of your time spent inside that you couldve skipped getting out with good behaviour or some **** like that

You can also not damage any infrastructure or other crimes, they will add up.
