Crazy Flash IV

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010


Die derzeitige miserable schlechte Wirtschaftslage zwingt Städte und Kommunen neue Wege zu beschreiten.
Die Kassen sind leer.
Alle neu eingestellten Mitarbeiter der Berufsfeuerwehr mĂĽssen jetzt ihre


in Heimarbeit selbst anfertigen.
Das THW hat ähnliche Schwierigkeiten.

Hier Modell “Frankfurt” mit Wegfahrsperre.
An der Feuerbeständigkeit wird noch gearbeitet.

Simply Great! Part I

Sunday, July 4th, 2010


As already reported in blogpost Eigude Shame VII , the

“mirror socks” on my car

were stolen before the match Germany vs. England (4:1), and the German flag was broken off. An old friend of mine has fixed together with his girlfriend in a conspirative underground mission new

World Cup mirror socks

to my car.
Great mission. Thanks again to both of you!
Probably my mate now has his upper body full of welts like a galley slave as I was forced due to lack of parking space to park very, very close to a hedge. Such a guy from German disaster relief can’t be stopped by anything.

Everything just in time before the friendly match against Argentina.

Germany – Argentina 4:0

God is no Argentinian after all.
Bye-bye Maradonna, have a good flight, handballer!

Semi-final, go Germany…
(Behind me is not my mentioned mate).

Handicap Parking Part I

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010


After I had proven my ability to drive with hand throttle in front of the technical control association and my hand throttle customized car had been delivered mid December I applied for a

personalised disabled parking place.

This worked out extremely fast.
At this point thanks to the staff of the road traffic department of the city of Frankfurt. Within a few days the corresponding sign was placed and the parking place roughly labelled, because at that time another car was parking there.

I was assured that the

Handicap label

on the street would be fixed later on.

At this time constantly other cars were parking on my parking place. I was appreciative because the sign is only visible well from one side, and these morons were parking against the driving direction. Well…

In the year 2009 I stood one single time on my disabled parking place.

On December 28th the road traffic department put two signs up

Absolute stopping restriction due to labelling work

to keep the place free so that the missing street labelling could be accomplished.

This meant for me to keep my parking place free.

On New Year’s Eve 2009/10 I unapologetically stood boozed without displayed parking permit in the

absolute stopping restriction zone.

This was the first and so far only time that I was standing on my parking place in 2010.
And even without a car, therefore under survey of an employee of the German disaster relief organisation (THW).

Then the snow arrived…

It is clear that the guys are busy with other things than my labelling.

From the deep of my heart I would like to thank the traffic participants who ignored the signs from the beginning out of altruism only.
The asphalt of my parking place is continuously kept dry for weeks by parking their cars above so that the labelling can be completed as soon as possible.

Which other reason should they have???

This might get funny.

Do I need a permanent line to the police?

Tell me your experiences…

If the current signs are not interesting anybody I should look for a small armoured tank with hand throttle.
With this I could then stand on the cars.
Drive defensively, drive a tank.

THW Emergency Vehicle

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009


We have to counteract the Global Warming:

The environmental protection doesn’t stop even for the
German disaster relief organisation (THW).

The THW was requested to decrease the carbon emission of their vehicles significantly.

The first eco-friendly

”THW Emergency Vehicles“

were already delivered.
