Oh, Germans

Walked 90 minutes today, from store to store, to find a pre-pay SIM in Germany whose price-plan for data was not pure extortion. And then couldn't buy it because all phone numbers in Germany have to be registered to a German address, so a SIM cannot be sold unless I showed ID and gave a german address. I had none, nor enough knowledge of how to make one up. Which is why I am typing this on a keyboard where the z and y are in the wrong place in a skeezz Internet cafe, in the evening, at €1,- an hour. At least it is cheap.
