    Going down memory lane, I came across one of the best posts ever inducted into the forum. Right here.

    Default Security breach

    My apartment has experienced a security breach, a gnat seems to have penetrated through my security defenses and has been flying around my apartment evading capture for the past two hours. All systems are shut down until this threat has been neutralized.

    My plan is to lure him to his death with a banana. I will report back with an update.

    I'm very curious about a judgement of the federal labour court that will decide today if employees of the church have a right to go on strike.

    The issue is a bit complicated since state employees (who have something like tenure and have a special employment relationship with the state) can't go on strike either, an idea going back to Frederick the Great) and the church argues that they aren't they only once with their own labor regulations. They also insist on their historic legal privileges that go back to the era of the kaiser.

    As a laicist however I do think that the state should have privileges that nobody else needs to have and that as far as labor law is concerned there shouldn't be a difference between working for the church and working for McDonald's (or, if that is less offensive, working for an NGO).

    The church is and should not be above the law. Otherwise it would only be fair to grant the same rights to the Hindu community, i.e. go back to the 19th century and abandon labor laws all together.

    Got my diabetic medication reduced, good news I've got execellent control and been losing weight, but been real quick to anger this last day or two, hope its not physical feedback turned into affect. Even dreamed about it. If there's one place you should be allowed to wreck havoc and kill its your dreams.

    I cant believe you're worried about the power of the Church, virtually irrelevent as culture has made it, but arent worried at all about statism.

    Wait, no, I'm not surprised. What am I saying. That is pretty predictable.

    I am not worried about either the power of the church or the state.

    I am annoyed at the special status it is granted compared to other entities because the only justification for that is tradition and - as I once heard a professor of public law say here at the university of Heidelberg - tradition is a pisspoor justification for an exceptional legal status.
