While things back in the land of the free here are kind of on fire (see 2016) our neighbors overseas laugh lightly at our little fiascos. Though it’s often thought of as a humorless strict place, Germany has a fair bit to laugh with. Here are some odd facts you may not have known about from Deutschland.

  1. With their first day of first grade children get a huge cone filled with sweets and toys: To help get the kids into the rhythm of school each child gets one, Austria and the Czech Republic have something similar to this.
  2. Collage is free: and many European countries are following the same way. They have no tuition fee and only make students pay for their own supplies.
  3. The Bielefeld conspiracy: It’s a running joke that the town of Bielefeld doesn’t exist, despite photos, articles, and actual townspeople; most if not all Germans claim that the town doesn’t exist and that it’s all a hallucination.
  4. Germany will get rid of its nuclear power plants by 2022: In order to find cleaner ways of energy, Germany has made a pledge to eliminate all of them.
  5. Pillows may be considered a “passive weapon”: This is due to a case where a man lost a tooth in a fight with one, since then many have commented it as being a passive weapon.
