More on the nodding

I agree with Christian. German people, when talking, always nod and move their shoulders a lot. It's like, when you ask a German person a question, before they answer they start shaking their shoulders up and down and moving their heads a lot. I don't think we do it in britain so much. It's kind of cool. I think body language is really important, When I talk German, I find myself adapting to the body language culture a bit and start shaking my head and shoulders around a little. You should try it Jacinta.... It's fun :)

they didn't burn any hamsters though, so I'm still on their side.

Well, there was never a decision to shut anyone out. Least of all the turkish press.
What happened: There is a procedure, you apply for a seat in court. Every press person worth its salt knows that. And every single turkish medium (and a lot of others) simply and utterly failed to apply for a seat. While I also think the case has been handled wrongly, and the court might have been more sensible, I also despise people being so great at complaining, most of the time factually incorrect, when they just haven't their shit together. If they had been like, OK, we messed up, but we'd still like to have a seat (for obvious and understandable reasons), I'd be all for them. Like this: Not so much. Stop whining and learn your trade.

I get super self-conscious when I talk to people from England because they just sit there and look and listen but I don't know if they listen BECAUSE THEY DON'T NOD or make any other sounds.

They just sit there (in shock?) and look a bit mental to me. That's so strange because conversation in this country seems to be quite a big deal but nodding isn't?

So yeah, do nod more to the Germans around you.
