    "Las Vegas" reminds me of "Baywatch"...good lookin' women...weak story lines.

    I have gotten hooked on "American Casino"...Travel Channel-Wed nites...right before WPT. Behind the scenes look at Green Valley Casino in Las Vegas,NV. Very interesting.

    German TV SUCKS! I've recently installed a satellite dish so I receive over 500 channels! I get a crapload of continental European channels, channels form the middle east to include the Al Qaeda channel. I only get 4 English speaking channels - CNN, BBC News, Skynews and MSNBC. At least I get Jay Leno and Conan. That's it though - it sucks missing normal TV.

    Just me venting again...

    No ESPN - only Eurosport (read soccer, Formula 1)
    HBO? I have to buy the Sopranos on DVD
    Discovery Channel - nope.
    Seinfeld? In German - so I buy the DVDs

    Needless to say, I have a large DVD collection :D

    Buttload of money? naw - 45% of my income goes to taxes.

    Deported? nope - it's the Bier and quiet that keeps me here.

    You ain't gonna get many decent channels like discovery and the rest for free :( . ESPN and hbo again ain't available from any of the famous satelites(Astra,Hotbird,Eutelsat etc.)so you gotta be an american to enjoy them :cool:.I would personally recommend sky digital because its an english packet full of goodies especially for those who speak english.For as low as 20quid a month you get many quality channels.

    45%???? :eek2: :eek2: :eek2:

    Agree with you regarding Sky, GF - for international news and having reporters on the spot fast they are tops in my opinion. Interesting that you (presumably in the UK) pay only GBP 20 a month. That is very reasonable. In South Africa even with a direct currency conversion that does not take other factors into account the service is Rands 400 a month - another example of overpricing in SA (cars are another example of rip-off prices way in excess of UK or US prices)

    All english speakers have one package to choose and its Sky.Not i don't work for Sky but they rule in europe.I pay 20 pounds a month and i have a variety of channels although i dont have channels that show new movies or sports.Sky movies and sky sports is what takes the price up to 43pounds a month.I recently (unofficialy)installed Sky digital in Greece where i go at times and me and my family couldn't be more pleased.Only problem is that the southest you move the bigger the dish you require() mainly for the BBC,ITV channels because these channels are from a satellite transpoder aimed for the UK only so the beam is supposed to be received within the british teritorries.Of course you can't control the beam tottaly so if you are in near by scandinavians or France,Germany with a 1,20-1,60cm you can 'grab' the signal and view the precious BBC,ITV channels and the rest with no problems whatsoever.

    New cars in the uk are overpriced and if you add the insurance cost it sucks :cool: although second hand ones are sold at very good prices.

    Ah, this explains the difference - our package is for the lot - sports, news, movies, Discovery, Travel, BBC etc etc etc plus local channels.

    I'm interested in cars so whenever I'm on the Continent, in the US or the UK I tend to compare new car costs, and although the UK prices do seem higher than in say France, they are still way cheaper than here...and the States is even better!

    We in europe usually go to belgium to get a car and drive from there all the way home(uk).I suppose you could do that if they ever make the giblartar bridge that connects europe and africa.

    LOL - yes, that could be handy but there's still that looooooong drive through a bunch of (understatement) quite unstable and dangerous countries 'cos CT is on the southern tip of the continent....and almost as frought with anxiety would be getting through SA Customs and their exhorbitant excise cut!!!

    Ah, for an African Common Market!

    I would expect that the cost of living is less in Africa than other countries so the fact that cars are expensive comes as a suprise to me :rolleyes:

    That is an educated asessment, GF - and the average salaries are correspondingly lower than in Europe with the currency conversions. But it's just good old fashioned "take 'em for as much as the market will stand" and in a country where the public transport system is not that hot a car is an important acquisition.

    Ironically, our manufacturing industry makes BMW 3 series, Mercedes C Class and VWs for export to Australia among other places - I'll bet they don't overcharge there!

    There was recently a commission which found that the public were being overcharged (there was another one on cell phones with the same conclusion) but it made no difference - the car manufacturers stalled it and appealed it and are "reviewing it in the context of the impact on the market of an adjustment" and still nothing happens. Car sales are still strong...they're getting away with it.

    I suppose as long as the market can keep up with the prices and they sell enough cars to keep the company going then for them there is no reason bringing down the prices.It's all about money even if some cant go along with the expenses:(

    I guess the pay rate for a labour there is much less than in Europe so it makes sense for BMW to produce their cars there.

    I know for a fact that in Romania or Czech the normal salary is a joke but still certain things like computers cost the same as in the UK.One wonders how people there actually can afford to have the things that we take for granted in western europe.Its much easier for me who can have a normal salary of 1grand to buy a computer than a romanian who takes 100quid.Unfair! :rolleyes:
