[Munich-pm] <Rant> Warning to long haired programmers in Munich

Don't forget to wrap a small knife, you can always claim it's "ceremonial", in
your turban. Could come in handy when surrounded by people armed with pistols.

Just read your link - nasty stuff. A couple of thoughts:

I'm sure you can't have the entry removed from "on file", or I'd be *very*
surprised if you could.

Maybe you could put one of those jewish skull-caps in your pocket. Next time
the Polizei stop you (you know they're going to), just slip it on your head. I
bet they'd leave you alone for fear of a non-politically-correct and
anti-jewish charge. I think they're a bit sensitive to that topic around here.


ps. I'm serious!
