You have to be 16 or older to buy cigarettes, even at a cigarette machine (or need the card of somebody that is older... :wink: ) there is a sl...

I think the Bundeswehr guys don't go to the field with a microwave oven in their rucksack but rather with an Esbit cooker, so aluminium is much more convenient :wink: Same thing in France for Lidl employees, even with our famous social laws (well, the good point is that they can do a strike every w...
