[ale] OT: Forget Comcast, I wanna move to Germany!

Well, as I understand the way that German Telekom works, the government
also subsidizes most of their services and folks living in Germany pay a
higher tax rate to support it (amongst other Government programs).?

So (if I'm understanding things correctly) how would you like
to pay a 50% (or higher) tax rate in order to have those advanced
services?? I'll take my 25% bracket (for now, unless we get a
consumption-based tax like FairTax) and be happy for now. :)
