Doug, only one question remains:

In the main role, do you want Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller or Owen Wilson?

 

As a follow up, and a final note, my father passed away overnight Sunday night, so he is at peace now, I saw him Sunday morning and he was unresponsive, eyes non blinking and open and mouth gaping, movements were instinctive only. He had gone from being living independently to that way in six weeks, from being communicative and coherent to unresponsive in two weeks. His passing was merciful. I am feeling okay about that at the moment, don't know how I will feel later.

 

The photos of the wedding are challenging, it was not a pretty wedding, few of the guests in the background can be seen to be smiling and the scenery is hard to deal with as well.

 

(and in answer to your question those actors are two young - I am 55, so perhaps Clooney, Costner or Bakula, maybe Branaugh, his work in Wallander has left me most impressed. please don't think less of me for the joke, my father would have appreciated the humour as well.)

I once got dragged along to a Juggalo/Juggalette wedding. Had to sit next to the Best Man.

He has flounder hooks in his lower lip.

Good times.

Using the mirrors in bat country again, are we?

I've referred to them once or twice in passing ... still not sure if they're real, a false flag operation or a monstrous joke. I suspect they're real though, since you can't depend on a German extremist to have a coherent ideology any more since 9/11 the latest - anti-imperialist anti-American anti-Zionist leftists, anti-German pro-American pro-Israeli leftists, autonomous violent hip-hopping leftists, autonomous violent hip-hopping neonazis, classical anti-semite neonazis, pro-Israeli neonazis ... you want sources on those, just ask me.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm having enough trouble keeping track of the loons over here. No need to branch out.

 

When I was stationed over there in the '70s, parts of Bavaria were still definitely "Hitler Country". I presume, judging from your post, that it is still that way?

Nah, more died in the wool conservative. They were probably even more conservative than they are nowadays... ;)

Most of the old diehard nazi sympathizers in the South were likely scooped up by the Republicans and withered away with them. This was in 1983 after Bavarian prime minister Franz-Josef Strauß negotiated a billion mark credit for the DDR and was labeled a traitor to the fatherland by right wingers in his own conservative CSU who proceeded to create a "real conservative" party of their own, probably borrowing the name from the US. Of course after some infighting in the leadership, Waffen-SS vet Franz Schönhuber emerged as the top dog in 1985 and moved the party even further to the right. They scored somewhat big in state-level and European Parliament elections in the late 80s/early 90s, up to 15 percent of votes in Bavaria, but declined thereafter.

 

They're still around in municipal assemblies but no longer on the state level, having reverted to a right-wing conservative party. Proper neonazis have mostly gone over to the National Democratic Party which is strongest in the East, currently eclectically represented in two state assemblies but eyed for a new try at a ban by the supreme court due to suspected connections with a right-wing terror cell which was recently found to have murdered at least nine immigrants and a police officer over the course of the last decade.

Doug, my sincere condolences.

 

Banshee, next to last time I was in Germany (2006), I spent some time in the Spreewald with the family of the husband of a friend of mine (there was a thread about it in this Grate Sight, pruned long ago, where I got the hint to go visiting Karlhorst Museum), and the father-in-law of my friend, referred a couple of times to one "Alois Fidler", joking or fondling, I don't know. Curiously, that same father-in-law was the local boss of the Communist Party before '91. :wacko:

Doug, my sincere condolences.

 

 

 

Thank you

 

but it actually gets worse, if that is possible, and no, I am not kidding, joking or whatever: It seems that my wife has chronic liver disease and will not be with us for a normal life expectancy either, I have just been told today by her doctor that treatment won't help, palliative care is on the agenda. Even if she stops drinking, her liver will not improve. Heaven knows how long....

What do you expect? That's where Hannibal left all his sick, lame and lazy before he crossed the Alps. <_<

 

Oh yeah, have some nightmare fuel

Well, that would be the Upper Bavarians, not the Franconians (who just happen to live in the same state)... ^_^

Absolutely what I was thinking. PM me if you need help putting it into the right format. Yes, I'm as serious as a turd on the dinner table.

 

Working title : THE HANGOVER, DOWN UNDER

 

Oh, and I nominate this for running in the TN2012 Post Of The Year. It's right up there with Max's "I have a knobby schlong".

 

I do not have a "knobby schlong", I have a gold Prince Albert. Don't make me post pictures to graphically to explain the difference, in detail. FINE detail.

The discovery of mysterious, blue, gelatinous spheres in an English backyard has captivated the imagination of scientists and the public alike. What the heck are the spheres? And where did they come from?

I'm sorry to hear this. You will both, naturally, be on the prayer list.

 

Considering her drinking problem, I suppose that a transplant is not a possibility?

My condolences. And nope, i didn´t judge you at all, for the joke and stuff. For one thing, being judgmental in Tanknet is a burden.

 

(and in answer to your question those actors are two young - I am 55, so perhaps Clooney, Costner or Bakula, maybe Branaugh, his work in Wallander has left me most impressed.

 

Your first choice was Clooney. Kudos on the self esteem.

Michael

 

She is seeing a specialist today, but given her age and her continued history a transplant is unlikely. Her brain is also not functioning well, having lost a lot of the ability to learn, and reason, which is also an effect of too much drinking. If she stopped drinking today completely there may be some stabilisation, but I cannot see her stopping.

 

Thank you for yoiur thoughts and prayers

Two sisters have been charged in St. Croix County Court with sexually assaulting a man with a pliers and giving him urine to drink.*

* Or for BP, "another Tuesday night"

 

 

Prof Ksanfomaliti, from the Moscow-based Space Research Institute, analysed photographs taken by a Soviet probe that landed on the planet's surface.

The 79 year-old claimed the pictures, taken by the probe Venus-13 in 1982, show a giant scorpion-styled insect that he claimed proved to life on the scorching second-closest planet to the sun.
