Where is the "Techniker"? (Memes in German)

An electric door at the University of Mainz in Germany broke down, see what happened next: Buzzfeed link

Impressive! Here in Rome, when something breaks, it gets a sign saying GUASTO ("broken") and then we all quietly accept that this thing will never work again.

(I wish I were joking.)

I especially like the part where the dean promises a small reopening ceremony :D

I found a video of the ceremony. Disappointing lack of Sekt and H├Ąppchen, but at least they had a ribbon to cut... and quite an impressive attendance :-).

The girl in one of the last cuts talks about a Sektempfang which would include Sekt and a few H├Ąppchen :)

(And you can see a few people drinking Sekt. So everything is as it should be)

Thank you -- my worries are assuaged, and I have learned a new sense of Empfang to boot.

At least we now know where Putin is - on his way to annex the door.
