Comedian Jan Böhmermann Lands on US Late Night Show with Seth Meyers

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

Are You OCD? Then Don’t Watch the ‘Most Unsatisfying Video in the World’

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

I like to classify my desire for order and rightness as me just being German. Others may venture to call it borderline OCD. Whichever way you want to look at it, German YouTuber Luksan Wunder found a way to make all of us who like things done right cringe with what he calls …

Footage Shows German Fighter Jets Intercepting Airplane Gone Quiet

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

With airplane safety being a worldwide concern, having a 777 aircraft filled with passengers go quiet thousands of feet in the air is enough to cause alarm. During a recent flight from Mumbai to London on Jet Airways, that was just the case while flying over Germany, leading to two German …
