There was nothing the police could do 'because after all there's no law against giving away your own money to passing strangers.'"

      I guess since food, shelter, medicine and many other "necessities/comforts" are a Germans God given right, why not give away your cash?

      Apart from the fact that the rights in question are granted by the German Volk acting through their parliament, not by some non-existent theistic entity, then you're entirely right.

      What almost beggars belief is that this is considered a story. Even by the pretty lax standards of 'Idle', this is barely an odd event, let alone a story.

  • I once went round with a bucket of money trying to give away spare change, in-case people came across someone needing it.
