So all those lightbulbs in both sides of the city have been running for... 24 years at least. ALL of them. They still are there, never broke, stopped working, been replaced. They still make this effect, it hasn't faded or mixed in any way.
Sure.

West Berlin uses many gas lights. During the cold war, their electricity could have been cut anytime but they had huge gas tanks as a reserve. Replacing them all would be extremely expensive, so they are being faded out and replaced gradually with florescent lamps / LED's. All of the above give off white light. East Berlin uses the standard electric street lights that give off a slightly yellow tinted light. Since they use a different socket, yellow bulbs are still being used (Pic related).

i'm pretty sure the difference in light-bulbs is because the difference in economy created by the wall, and the poorer side buys more cheap lightbulbs

East Germany was the embodiment of Communism. There were no Jewish capitalists wanting to drain you of your last penny, although there were Jewish Commissars, but they had the workers' interests in mind.

Germany today is like Northern Turkey. They may be the powerhouse of Europe but they're far from independent; having to spend much money on their underdeveloped neighbors; a forced act by the capitalist scoundrels who lead the EU.

It's sad how a German state has never lasted for much more than a century. Hitler would have built a glorious empire, Pieck, a paradise.

Wait, what? In every other post of yours you've been a right-wing conservative/capitalist. You really are bipolar, aren't you?
