    Second, in this and many other cases in Germany the church (in this specific case a protestant church) and the unions are at odds with each other. Both the protestant and catholic church have been known to treat their employees badly, hiding behind their legal special status.

    Third, not everyone is out to get the church or burn Catholics at a stake (which would mean beating them at their own game, lol), not even ardant laicists.

    Fourth, good gracious, man, lighten up already!
    I sort of think you're treating the discussion with more gravity than me, particularly getting seriosu with the points, could be the TP operating IDK.

    There's nothing wrong with militaristic romantization
    Non-adherence to progress is not the same as tradition, tradition is compatible with progress, they are oars on the same boat.

    It depends on the militaristic romantization I guess, in practice it can lead to the worst sorts of corruption.

    Cats are actually really cute animals that I share emotional connections with more than I do with people.

    someone really needs to invent a museum of natural disasters so that I can go and see awesome things like tornadoes, volcanoes and mud flows when I want to go and see them... really... 29 years of living at one end of tornado alley and I still haven't even managed to see the most accessible of natural disasters around here

    "A foggy day in London Town
    Had me low and had me down
    I viewed the morning with alarm
    The British Museum had lost its charm
    How long, I wondered, could this thing last?"

    Forever, that's how long. :S

    Webcam to the currently flowering titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) at the botanical garden of the university of Basel, one of the largest flowers in the world:http://titanwurz.unibas.ch/cam/a2/titan-1280.jpg




    PS: Amorphophallus titanum roughly translates as "enormous shapeless dick"
