^ Ha la la, cousin, the Soviets were so rough to build things like this up to the early 80s.
I say it's communist atheism and materialism. Those backward Communism and Nationalism... They pretend hating one other, but both are the very same in the end.
Decadence.

As soon as I saw the building, it reminded me of an episode of a favorite comic series (from Belgium, as often) inspired by the US Union army during their civil war.



You see that weird armored confederate/nazi thing with cannons? That's it.

I'm not even sure torturing mice to death would still be helpful for contemporary science, but that building should be preserved.
I actually find it interesting, as a piece of our Euro memory.

The best cities in the world for culture and lifestyle, according to expats


Quote:
For those who consider culture and lifestyle a top priority, Berlin is the best city to call home, according to the latest Expat Explorer survey from HSBC. The German capital is famous for its nightlife and art scene, and the report found that 70% of expats living there say it had a “vibrant cultural scene”. The city is also considered one of the most welcoming, as 55% of expats say the city welcomes diversity, taking the third place spot in Europe after Stockholm and Lisbon.

Fact is Berlin was pretty much like Central Paris before it was bombed out.
I saw a bunch of B&W documents, dated 1920s, 30s and early 40s.
Building shapes and old urbanity were fine, well aligned, disciplined and decorated, just as the strict Napoleonic bourgeois thing.

Crazy Adolf (who supposedly or basically was a Jewish Austrian or something nuts according to some urban legend here, but I don't really care about silly hearsay, lol) wanted our city destroyed before it was freed from nationalism, but the faithful German governor in charge of the city never obeyed him. He never would burn down the city... That was something sweet of him.

We won't forget about this. I'd rather recall good people, forgetting the useless/bad ones.

Eliud Kipchoge smashes marathon world record in Berlin


Quote:
Kipchoge, 33, did not just beat it, he destroyed it. Shattered it. Put it so far out of reach it is difficult to envisage anyone surpassing it for years to come. His incredible winning time of 2hr 1min 39sec was a full 78 seconds better than the previous mark - the first time the world record had been lowered by more than a minute in a race for 39 years and the single greatest improvement for 41 years.

Bah, we'll be celebrating our real unity sometime soon, bro.
We'll be singing it in German, Italian, French, Spanish and Portuguese. All our languages are basically valuable, and we have big brains here.
We can learn and speak anything.

I say hard work, proper and aggressive pro-Euro propaganda, and patience.

First, we got to free ourselves from the US when it comes to military power.
We can't be any credible nation on the global stage without the strength to kick any ass in the world.
I want us feared by all, without any exception.

So I want the French and the Germans in a same army to protect ourselves.
I want the Chinese to crap their pants before our crushing power.

Second, we need to dream bigger, like this.

Look at the good German scientist doing the job in the report.
We have the technology to hit a tiny asteroid moving fast through space.
Can you realize how bad of a feat that is? We did once already! It requires the greatest accuracy in the world, and we're about to do it again.

Money to be made by mining those asteroids coming from crazy far away from here, without any harm to Earth... Huge! We are ahead here already.

We can do the greatest and most precise things for real, if only united indeed.
Together on our continent, before growing even bigger.
