I'm visiting Germany and I'm just wondering if I can buy a lighter. Is 17 old enough, because in UK it's 16.
>no buying an expensive sophisticated lighter to smoke with.
Why even bother?
In Germany nearly everything is strictly regulated. But surprisingly sale of lighters is not. At least not on federal level. In Bavaria fire protection regulations say lighters should not be sold to children below the age 12.
>In Germany nearly everything is strictly regulated
For example? Really curious because I only know they are very liberal when it's about alcohol and have very high speed limits on the Autobahn.
in Germany is fucking everything u can imagine regulated by laws...
have a look on this site and translate it:
You are fucking retarded if you believe what you are saying. Link literally says stuff like "you are not allowed to drive 150km/h on a 100 km/h road, even if you need to piss really bad".
not the one anon, but:
The need to piss doesn't allow you to drive 150 is indeed prohibited as stated in the article. ...This (with high probability, as i suppose) refers to non-Autobahn roads, which only allow speeds up to 100 km/h. Therefore, the law makes sense
Germans like to make rules about everything ('just in case'), but it doesn't mean they always follow them.
In a lot of ways, they're a lot more relaxed about most 'dangerous' shit than anglo countries are.
