Two pounds of reality, please!

One of the words that surprises me the most here is Realitätenbüro (lit. "realities office").

Even though the dictionary suggests it's the southern (*) word for a real estate agency, I think it's much more fun to imagine people going to a Realitätenbüro to learn to big truths about life, the realities, for example:

- money does not bring happiness, or

- Santa Claus is a green gnome, the red fat one was created by a renowned soft drink company.

Interesting, isn't it?

(*) at least, Mr. Google does not seem to find any Realitätenbüro north of Munich
