Is cereal soup? Why or why not?
This thread is dying waaaaaaaaay tooooooo fast.
What if the Germans had Superman in World War II?
Their hero Nietzsche did love a Superman. The allies would just have countered with Doctor Manhattan. I'd take Doctor Manhattan in a fight.
Ubermensch...except uber doesn't quite mean the same thing in German as the translation (super) means in English.
Schadenfreude is the best German word.
It's a good word, I also really like kummerspeck (grief bacon), which is the weight you put on when you emotionally eat.
A worthy word winner. German has the best words.
Yeah, but jokes about German sausages are the wurst.
Hey, this thread lasted through Saturday morning, four hours before game time. Thanks Chank!
Iss Shweinensheiße. Tschüß!
Is a hot dog a sandwich? Discuss.
Why does cold water sound different than hot water coming out of the faucet?
No. But it could be a vital element to a sandwich when served in a bun. ...pick, pick, pick.
Hot take alert: I'm just not a fan of Rush and Neil Peart's death is not the end of some musical era for me. I'm sure he was a fine man, but this is not John Lennon we're talking about. Agree or disagree?
Hot water is less dense than cold water due to the faster moving molecules.
I'll play along with the disclaimer that you don't have to be Rush fan to appreciate his talent and legacy. Neil Peart was not only one of the greatest — if not the greatest — percussionists ever, but he was without question one of the most underrated and under-appreciated lyricists.
Limelight was probably their most commercial hit, but there was nothing common or cliche about the lyrics Peart wrote. To me, that's what separated him from most other great musicians.
Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage
Cast in this unlikely role
Well equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
Living in a fisheye lens
Caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can't pretend a stranger
Is a long awaited friend
All the world's indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another's audience
Outside the gilded cage
Maybe but it always depends on which era you grew up in.
When Lennon died I’m sure some older people said “I’m sure he’s a fine man, but this isn’t Cab Calloway or Al Jolson we’re talking about”
I liked a few of their songs (Spirit of the Radio my favorite), but I appreciate the fact that he was arguably the greatest rock drummer ever. A wizard on the skins, while also a prolific songwriter/lyricist. I think that’s his legacy.
“Less time separates us from Tyrannosaurus rex than separated T. rex from Stegosaurus.”
