Auf Kosten der Gesundheit Teil Zwei






















Found the dead body of a BMW (not so sure about the model, kind of difficult to determine with certainty due to pyromania) last Monday noon while grocery shopping near Lohmühlenpark, the second most disappointing park of Hamburg just surpassed by the cash machine at the end of my street. This marvellously efficient work of German engineering had been burned to a crisp by someone who surely hated the guts of its proud upper-middle-class basic owner, probably due to various reasons, usually committing adultery with his wife. The four-wheeled vehicle's coachwork had melted and solidified, and ashes were covering the car of some monogamous gentleman parked on its right side. People passing by stared at it without the bewilderment I would have expected, maybe because it's a Central-European tradition and they're kind of used to it. I'll never know if the police photographer who took pictures of the corpse before me was Tom Petty or just a character in Guitar Hero 2But its slow, merciless death looked like the most dramatic, thrilling thing I saw that day. One can never be thankful enough for the love and the insanity and the fire, specially all three combined.*


*This may or may not be the second issue of a series called Auf Kosten der Gesundheit, may or may not, depending on the rise or decrease of intentional homicide rate in Germany, Hamburg in particular.
