Lucas ruined it first with the prequels. Disney just did what Disney does best: Take a story and dumb it down so even a metally challenged six-year-old can follow.

Nobody has ever said that to me (which I now realize sounds kind of sad). But nevertheless, thank you, too.

That BS was propaganda by the monk Salimbene of Parma against Frederick II due to Frederick's almost permanent conflict with the popes. There is not a shred of evidence supporting that Friedrich II (often confused with Friedrich II. of Prussia) ever conducted such an experiment. There are tales of Pharao Psamtik who supposedly is the origin this myth.

One of these things is not like the other. It's only called Victorian Era in the English speaking parts of the world.

... or Freud developed that theory during a time when it was normal for middle class children to be raised by nannies. Unlike today, children back then were not raised by their parents and therefore had difficulties forming an incest barrier which comes natural to children growing up in normal families today.

I can't remember which Discworld novel it is but in one of them is a paragraph about this. There, Terry Pratchett speculates that a lot of mountain names probably just mean "that's a mountain, you idiot" in the local language.

German customer service & state of IT in a nutshell 5 comments

Although I never had the displeasure of flying with Lufthansa, I think this is plausible. Being a German myself, I can confirm that this is a correct and fair representation of our idea of customer service. Customers are not kings where I live. They are petitioners and are to be treated as such. Just one more reason for the rest of the world to love us.

Shark fact nr. 623, it's also the Norwegian word for shark 14 comments

In German it is also "Hai" for shark and it sounds exactly like the English "hi". Which, when used as a greeting in Germany, can provoke the other person to pretend being unable to understand English and ask 'Wo' in mock panic. "Wo" is German for where. It's probaply the oldest joke about English-German homophones.

For the sake of the joke and because I loathe both kinds of bird, I'll ignore the fact that this goose is a swan.

Nope, we usually just react poorly when believers shove their faith in our faces and then our reaction gets interpreted as disrespect. We aren't rare; historically, tended to be well done after meeting theists.
