In Topic: Gone For 6 Months..

My ex-girlfriend was interested in the game, so I told her to buy it when it was on sale recently, but she didn't have money at the time. Now after the changes I told her she can for once be glad she was broke for a while. :P

Mosquitoes? That is not my expertise, but I think they are more a threat in tropical zones like Thailand, Philippines and the list goes on and they like warm and wet. Germany climate is still far from that and no you don't have so much rainy, moisture as Tropical environment.

There is substance vs Malaria and that or tigers are not the worst threat in Asia that I want to visit in 2015.

I wouldn't have mentioned it if it wasn't already a problem over here. The rhine valley actually has subtropical climate during the summer months in recent years, no joke. The area is very swampy due to the rhine not going in a straight line but actually making curves. They made it artificially straight in the 19th century, but the old river bends still remain as wetlands with very calm water. Perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes I can tell you.
And those asian mosquitos that are starting to breed here, often carry stuff like malaria and west nile virus. So far there has been no reported case of any of those diseases being transmitted, but I'd say it's only a matter of time. Luckily we are prepared for it.

That said I know it's probably one of the safest places on earth I life in and I'm glad that's the case because I don't plan to move anywhere else. I really wouldn't want to trade the beautiful and peaceful scenery, the great infrastructure, the countless historical sights or the kind hearted people for anything, not even a great job offer.

Of course you would like global warming as you don't have to deal with it's problems up in the north. I'm on the other hand less than pleased that the potentially deadly tiger mosquitoes from asia are starting to migrate into my home area. As if normal mosquitoes weren't annoyning enough.

Besides I have to admit I miss the old winters with 80cm of snow and more for several weeks. Nowadays it's barely 10cm for maybe 1-2 weeks in the entire winter.

Meanwhile I sit in the rhine valley where nothing dangerous ever happens, not even floods and we have a temperate climate all year long, in recent years even during the winter. *sips soft drink*
