In Fischhausen-Neuhaus, passengers have had to wait for the train for weeks. Because the train has dismantled all the benches. The reasoning is surprising.

It’s a provincial railroad farce, but it’s anything but funny for those involved. At the train station in Fischhausen-Neuhaus, all the benches were removed without warning – with no prospect of a quick replacement. This is reported by the “Münchner Merkur.”

Not only in Fischhausen, but also at the neighboring stations, the benches are all gone. For months. If you have to wait longer for a train here – which can happen from time to time – you have to stand. Only the foundations of the benches remained, they now serve as uncomfortable squatting places.

The newspaper told the newspaper the following to justify it: “The seating on the platform did not meet the current requirements.” Therefore, they were “dismantled”. The newspaper wanted to know how exact the specifications for seats are. The benches were set up “on relatively narrow platforms” and were “too large for their location,” said a spokeswoman.

A rather strange explanation for the locals. Because the metal benches have been there for years, nobody ever complained, and nothing happened.

After all: plans for new benches have been “initiated”, according to the railway. When these will come, however, is “not yet certain at the moment.”

Attitudes towards work also change over the generations. And that much to the chagrin of Europapark boss Roland Mack, who is currently desperately looking for workers for his amusement park. He simply cannot understand the work ethic of the younger generation, which is geared towards balance and low stress.

Germany reacted to the Fukushima disaster in 2011 with the planned nuclear phase-out. But it costs billions, and the problem of final disposal remains unsolved while neighboring countries continue to use nuclear energy. In France, as shown by a comprehensive ARD documentary, the German exit is considered “ridiculous”.

According to the think tank Center for Research on Energy and Clean Air, the EU is still the main recipient of Russian oil exports. Accordingly, the EU receives 51 percent, China 25 percent and India four percent of Russian oil. Still, since the war of aggression in Ukraine began, Russia would export fewer fossil fuels than before.
