– Was Jogi Loew, our national soccer coach, right when he said Michael Ballack is still the team’s leader? Or should it be the younger Philip Lahm?

– Are you pro or con Stuttgart 21? This is the very bold project to re-built the town’s central train station in the underground. Could be expensive…

– What do you think about the recent situation of politics (although some might say, it’s an unwritten law in our country not to smalltalk about politics)? Economy crisis, discussions about immigration and integration…

– Is the system of schools and teaching still up to date? Recently, our universities and schools were rated a bit low in the world…

That’s what we talk about over here. Anything to add from the eastside?
