Father was diagnosed with diabetes, he's at least the 4th generation with it.

Sometimes you just look at the beautiful field of genetics and wonder who was like ":censored: this family in particular!"

Been there, done that. My father went through both types (is currently insulin-dependent) and last year had a quintuple-bypass surgery. He's fine.

His ancestry is almost exclusively German -- I swear, we take a hell of a beating but still keep ticking. :uhh:

Indeed. Ze Germans went from Superpower to desolate wasteland (Thanks Zhukov!) to major power player in quite a short time. It would probably take a nuke to stop Germany.

You better aim that well... if you don't hit Merkel at first strike, all bets are off :p

Why? Without beer the German Army would surrender in exchange against a few bottles of beer per soldier.

I'm not sure if I can start another try for Matt's Law: The intelligence of a group of people is inversely proportional to the alcohol consumption of said group.

I don't want to imagine how the German army would fight, if forced to be sober. A Jihad might be harmless compared to what would come if 250,000 man and woman are forced to go through one of the most terrible withdrawal phases ever.

"They have killed the Hofbräuhaus!"
"You bastards!"

That's got to be one of the most Machiavellian ways to motivate an army I've ever heard of . . . :shifty:

Fixed. :blush:

I was feeling particularly acidic that day, and was blowing off some steam. The American propensity towards ranting notwithstanding, I was concerned about unleashing too much of my venom in the wrong direction. I think it'll be OK now.

Now why I didn't think of that several years earlier? :tumbleweed:

My eight-year-old is already talking about going to Mars. I told him it's possible, but he's got a lot of work ahead of him before that can happen.

(I'm not going to automatically shoot down a dream like that; after all, it is possible given the right circumstances. The right perspective is, of course, helpful. After all, did Chris Columbus want to stay home? No. What if the Wright Brothers thought that only birds should fly? And did Galoka think the yuuluus too ugly to save?)

It's only here the government has to run educational campaigns about using earphones/headphones when listening to music inside public transport?
