    Re: Wtf

    Lor Ling - I am going to get contact lenses on my next visit to bangkok.

    I am sure there are also many people who don't find you attractive, by the way.

    Thankyou for your input on my appearance.

    Perhaps a similar approach could be utilised for German hairdressers?

    Of course it would be churlish to point out the similarity between German and Argentinian predelictions in this department.

    Boys from Brazil? A subtle distraction tactic.

    Not for kicking anyone's arse.
    Not very sensitive having the Eurostar Express arrive and depart from the railway station named after one particularly severe French arse-kicking though, is it?

    Fair comment...but with all the problems the French caused in the 20th century in the Middle East, South East Asia...not to mention the Versailles treaty...I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    Not true. I work with a young German man and he says that it is all laid out in all its evil to be studied and consequently many young Germans have a guilt complex over what their grandfathers generation did.

    Re: Wtf

    have you ever been to germany? they have a great educational system and are very thorough in everything they do.

    what could possibly lead you to believe that they would attempt to cleanse their history books of the nazis? all european nations learn about it in their history classes...it was the defining moment of the twentieth century!

    no need for wanker signs btw....they're just ridiculous

    No I haven't. I made it clear that my comment was based on meeting a few exchange students...so my comment was of course open to correction...however I have also been told by people who know more than me about it that their history curriculum is light on detail. Many Nazis survived into the German bureaucracy...

    so I am not in a position to argue

    Re: Wtf


    For Germans, the Holocaust is not an event that happened in a faraway place in some distant past, but is part and parcel of their recent history. The memory of the Nazi dictatorship -- of which the Holocaust is an integral part -- and its traumatic legacies have been shaping German policies since the end of World War II. The rebuilding of political institutions in western Germany and postwar political education were largely determined by a serious effort to try to understand the horrors of the Nazi dictatorship and by searching for safeguards in order to prevent history from repeating itself. Consequently, teaching about Nazi dictatorship and the Holocaust at schools is not limited to a niche in the history syllabus like the "French and the Indian Wars." Instead, it is discussed again and again in different ways, in a number of subjects, and at different points in time.

    The treatment of the Nazi period in all its aspects -- Hitler's rise to power; his establishment of a dictatorship in Germany; the abolition of the rule of law; the persecution of all kinds of political opponents; the racially motivated persecution of the Jews, culminating in the Holocaust; the reticence and opposition of German citizens; and, Germany's instigation of World War II -- is compulsory teaching matter at all types of schools in Germany and at all levels of education. The Holocaust is treated as the most important aspect of the period of Nazi rule.

    ^ Ahh that's why their sense of humour isn't rubbish!

    I had a 'worrying' experience in Egypt with two Israelis....they were saying to me 'oh you British like to make fun of everything, you even make jokes about the holocaust'.....I was like 'well not me personally mate'....and he then came out with the classic 'what's the different between a Jew and a current bun (or something like that)?' joke....didn't know whether to laugh or run away (he had one of them scarey bald heads with a beard but no tash).
