    Nach Berlin

    So, I'm going to germany to stay with friends for a month.

    Dec 3 - Dec 29.

    Besides a passport, do I need anything else to enter germany ?
    And what about customs ? are they are going to go through all my shizzle and strip search me or ?? I know pravit went to germany this summer. What kind of stuff do they put the white man through ?
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    Not being an American, I can't tell. But whenever I cross the EU border in Germany, they normally just look at your passport, and from what I have personally seen the same applies to the Americans. Unless they look Arab or something. Customs rules theoretically exist, but most of the time there is nobody to enforce them, i.e., you can go through the red or green passages alike and no one is bothered to look at you, let alone your stuff. Notice that customs and security are two different things; the security guys are not so relaxed, and they will get your stuff x-rayed and yourself scanned, but they will not go to the American degrees of paranoia. So, if you manage to get through the American procedures, you’ve got to nothing to be afraid of in Germany.

    When I went, it wasn't a big deal, I just needed my passport. Again, as bad manners said, they are pretty lax at customs.

    The loops that you're talking about are related to the visa business. No visa, no loops. Unless we're talking USA. Sometimes I think that all the countries in the world should just make those loops mandatory for the Americans even when visa is not required.

    Why ?
    Why, indeed. Here is a story for you. I got my passport before 9/11. Like in 1996 or something and it is valid for 10 years. So I would use that passport for a couple more years, right? Wrong. Last couple of times I had to travel to the US they gave me hell, real freaking hell, because the passport was not machine readable and because my country was not keen on supporting the US in Iraq. Any visitor is now "assumed terrorist". Now add to that idiocy at the passport control the humiliating procedures all visitors to the US are subject to, and that might give you an idea why I think there must be some reciprocity.

    Well im sorry your country sucks. I mean what the hell, it's not like every single american citizen got together and agreed to make it so hard for everyone exept for terrorists to get in. Don't f*cking put the blame on me for what the goverment decided.

    We didn't vote for it, so don't punish us.

    Your "blame one, blame all" theories are just as bad as all "nti terror" propoganda we already have enough of.

    Don't blame this administration for security and passport problems. It was the whining, whinging "left" that complained about law enforcement "profiling" that now forces everybody to get the same amount of scrutiny. You made your bed, now you sleep in it!

    You got that backwards, dude.

    Nice try, but does not work. You live in a freaking "democracy", so it is your fault that your country stinks. Next time try and make sure that you spend two minutes filling out that ballot instead of jerking off watching an xxx-rated movie. Or just be treated in my country like I am treated in yours. Your choice, fella.

    1. The American people didn't have a vote in this, so this proves who wrong right there.
    2. I'm only 17, I can't even vote, so even if Americans DID vote for such a law(which they didn't) it's not like it would be my fault anyways
    3. Howabout you just don't come to America anymore, we don't want you here anyways.

    You thought that was bad? After I passed German customs, I was stopped at security and they deported me to Turkey. Then I managed to smuggle myself back into Germany and for one month I was subjected to the indignity of having to make D

    Dogboy: I know that you did not want that and you alone cannot change that. Problem is, when the entire country thinks the same, how is it going to change? The only peaceful and effective way for us Europeans to get the point across is by giving you the same kind of experience that we're given in your country.

    When I went to deutschland this summer the process was a breeze... so much better than the american airports, even though i'm an american...lol...kinda sad...

    Here is an example of how nice the german system is: I joked with the guards and other personel the few minutes I spent at their stations, and they didn't get all pissy like ALL of the american personel did if I even fidgeted a little!

    After a month in deutschland I really have to say that their admission system isnt the only thing superior to the american counterpart.

    Oh, and about america being a democracy... imho, and in many others, what we have isnt a true democracy, and is slipping quickly into something far from it. Unfortunately most people with these views cannot vote yet, and with the current system unless you have a majority your vote doesnt count on the national scale anyways.

    Plastic-Saint, however, if you tried to settle here, you might have gained other experiences...or maybe the US American bureaucracy is really bad.

    Our bureaucracy is more frightening than an atomic bomb.
