Whoever is right on the details, the events of the last week leading to the Greek referendum should count.

Finland. Germany is also in the realm of possibility.
As the only major differences between "Ehe" und "Eingetragene Lebenspartnerschaft" are adoption rights and the name now, but the latter being of high symbolic value for the CDU it won't happen. In case of adoption right, the Constitutional Court will strike again, soon, on it's path to marriage equality (they have done it several times before).

But if we just shut out everyone past a certain amount, those poor people will still have no place to go.

So where would you draw the line? A million or perhaps two? How about doubling Austria's population? Anyway, they have plenty of places to go...it's not like they didn't cross other EU (or safe) countries on their way to Austria.

Exactly. I support the current system which is outfitted to house some 15.000-25.000 asylum seekers, but not the 60.000 that are expected this year without creating problems for municipalities
So let us drown them all in the Mediterranian?

Telegraph is reporting that Tim Farron wants to change the party's name to "the Liberals".

Why not change it to "the Liberal Party", like old?

Because the old Liberal Party still exists.
But wouldn't the Registration of Political Parties Act 1998 prohibit "The Liberals" as well?

It seems that turnout now has caught up with the 2011 numbers, a bit. Weather was supposed to be better in the afternoon, so many voters probably have been taking that into account scheduling their planned voting time. Looks more 52ish now.

Daylight savings time should be kept. Standard time should of course be abolished.

Yeah, this.
This would mean: No light for me in my part of the world in the winter before 9 am. THAT's just insane.

To be honest, the "lyrics" of this "song" still sound like "It's all about airbags" to me, so probably boobs. ;-)

Also, I've heard it said that Moses did write the part where he died as well.
So did Moses actually fake his death and is still alive? ;-)

The need of distinction intrinsic to fans of hardcore punk to define a new subgenre for each and every band and its five listeners is quite insane.

I think John was just overdramatizing the eclipse of 1999 for a good laugh and to break the americocentristic bent. ;-)

Wasn't there a reference in the Simpsons, that Halley's comet collided with the moon? I think this would count. Found the 4th trumpet. It's actually meta-allegorical. ;-)

On the other hand, noone knows what Angela Merkel's CDU stands for and they are very successful at the federal level. ;-)

Scholz would just happen to be Steinbrück reloaded in so many ways.

On the other hand, there seems to be some discussion, weither Scholz is "SPD's Merkel" or at least is "acting like Merkel" in a political sense, which seems to be very far fetched for me.
22  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Did Martin Luther drink better beer than your average American college student? on: February 13, 2015, 01:57:25 am
He surely drank more, at least. But the everyday beer of the 16th century was still light beer with little original wort that has probably some similarity with the German chliché of "American beer".
On the other hand, Torgisch beer (from the town of Torgau) is probably the beer Luther drank most in Wittenberg and this had a very good reputation. (It was at least that good that the students of Leipzig once started a revolt to have the import of Torgisch beer allowed so they had not to drink the beer from Leipzig that tasted like "karst".

Luther also liked wine, first of all Malvasier

On a particularly unrelated note, he once stated, that, unlike Justus Jonas, he did not use this new fenzy invention called "toilet paper".

Oh, it was a reference to Vienna's "Pegida". It seems I accidentally jumped back in this thread and thought this had been yesterday. Sorry for that.

Of course, it can stand as a metaphor for Austrian history after WW I in general. ;-)

Hegel bemerkt irgendwo, daß alle großen weltgeschichtlichen Thatsachen und Personen sich so zu sagen zweimal ereignen. Er hat vergessen hinzuzufügen: das eine Mal als große Tragödie, das andre Mal als lumpige Farce.

Hegel states at some point, that all great facts and characters of world history occur twice, so to speak. He forgot to add: Once as great tragedy and once as cheap farce.
