In Series G it was previously mentioned that the Germans have issues with men standing up when they go to the lavatory.

Well now a judge has ruled in favour of men's right to stand up when they urinate. A landlord had tried to seek 1,900 after claiming that his marble floor had been damaged by urine, but Judge Stefan Hank of Duesseldorf said: 'men who insist on standing "must expect occasional rows with housemates, especially women" but cannot be held to account for collateral damage. "Despite growing domestication of men in this matter, urinating while standing up is still common practice"'.

That is preposterous. If they cannot clean up after themselves, they should pay for a bleaching effect or whatever urine does on various floors.

*Pats myself on shoulder for understanding the German words* (I need something to lift my self-esteem!)

Also very funny. I might even go so far as to call it brilliant.

The German for 'multiplication tables' is 'das Einmaleins', literally meaning, 'the one times ones'.
