Baden-Württemberg because there's a reasonable chance that the people there, at least in the southernmost parts of the state, understand my Swiss German.

Probably Berlin now, but I'd rather not be born there due to having to be born in the GDR or dealing with all those reunification issues. For that either Hamburg or Frankfurt.

They understand Danish in the northernmost part of Schleswig, so Schleswig-Holstein would be the most convenient. Flensburg is a pretty town, but a bit out of the way.
If I where German Id go for Heidelberg in Baden.

I think Baden-Württemberg probably offers the most, and I have a soft spot for Bavaria....but still: Hessian pride!

My ancestors are from Hesse or the Palatinate so one of those.  I went with Hesse.

The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

If I had to, I'd live in Bavaria. Shocking, right?

What's my problem with Britain? I thought I stated how much I liked it when I came back from England (though I wouldn't live there but I wouldn't live in Italy either).

Your political kind (even in more barbaric places like Italy Wink) would be rather lonely, I suppose.

But you're happy to live in the US? In Pennsylvania?  Please explain your reasoning.

Germany really doesn't pull me in any way, but I suppose Berlin would be tolerable. (On the other hand, certain parts of the city just are completely lost to the most insufferable elements of Europe's trendy scene, and even the idea of their proximity might be just too much. NRW would be a good alternative, I suppose.)
