Would YOU pay to visit Hitler's hideout? Yes, I of course understand the "never let this happen again" educational value of preserving Auschwitz and other Nazi-related sites, but I'm not completely convinced of the value of restoring and charging admission to Hitler's bunker, or promoting it as a must-see attraction. For one thing, obviously the Germans are concerned with paying too much tribute to Hitler-related sites, lest they attract neo-Nazis. Maybe just a few informational plaques would suffice.

And yes, I know Poland has a particularly tragic history, but one wonders if their tourism board could find some more positive attractions to promote. It does have a lot more to offer than Auschwitz and Nazi relics (please, PLEASE don't take that sentence the wrong way).
I agree it's such a strange thing to use as a tourist attraction. But I guess it is a part of preserved history that could be a profitable tourist thing. But it really isn't just not the same. Visiting hitler's hide out and visitor a medieval castle just feels completely different to me while they're both similar in uses.

Still better than Auschwitz. I don't think I would ever volunteer to go to Auschwitz. I'll stick to my grade 10 textbook.

People will just use it as a place to re-enact those Hitler rant videos....why not use the money to research more into green energy?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Babe in Osaka? Pig Causes Major Traffic Jam.

Soccer Mom Causes Taiwan's NCC to fine TV station for airing School Rumble
"impair the physical or mental health of children or juveniles."

Oh, is School Rumble that dangerous? Yet the Taiwanese parliament, it seems, has on some occasions even more violent moments.

Post-election suckup to their citizens so they can win the next one. Typical politicians.

Felix Faure disagrees. He was the french president between 1895 and his death.

I'll quote wiki who puts it better than what I could :

Death

Faure died suddenly from apoplexy on 16 February 1899, at a critical juncture while engaged in sexual activities in his office with 30-year-old Marguerite Steinheil. It has been widely reported that Felix Faure had his fatal seizure while Steinhell was fellating him, but the exact nature of their sexual intercourse is in fact unknown and such reports may have stemmed from various jeux de mots (puns) made up afterward by his political opponents. One such pun was to nickname Mme Steinheil "la pompe funèbre" (wordplay in French: could mean both "funeral pomp" and "funeral pump"). George Clemenceau's epitaph of Faure, in the same trend, was "Il voulait être César, il ne fut que Pompée" (another wordplay in French; could mean both "he wished to be Caesar, but ended up as Pompey", or "he wished to be Caesar and ended up being pumped": the verb "pomper" in French is also slang for performing oral sex on a man)

Best death ever ...

Doctor : How did you even get that in your head in the first place?
Man : Guess?
Doctor : You were building something and that thing was shot into your brain instead of your ideas.
Man : You nailed it.

YEEEAAAAAHHHHHH!

Germany is the paradise for criminals, believe me.
Rich country, gullible, careless and naive people, laughable - if not insane - courts, hotel prisons.
