    Im partly of German stock and I know all about the disgusting habits of your people's working class descendents.

    Fortunately though im a mixed breed and of an evolutionary step forward because I quickly hurried away from all that and now look around myself and think incredulous thoughts like "people still smoke???!"

    But yeah I grew up around that kind of shit, and the mentality of work until you're dead.

    The one nice thing I have to say about it is that I inherited the physical hardiness.

    Three positions? And two at the same time? Ah, I'll never be able to speak German. My father taught himself to read German and taught me the Germans are the most cultured people in the world. And yet you are telling me there are three positions a verb can take in a sentence, and sometimes two at the same time.

    Well this is the real reason Germany is more efficient. People who rest and take vacation and have family life or love life or at least hobbies are more refreshed and focused when they do work than people who are burnt out.

    What do you mean? You respond to the suggestion that burn out is bad by associating it with socialism? What do you understand by socialism and why do you make the association?
