For the Germans? I reckon it isn't good. They made a lot of innovations in pursuit of world dominance. Tiger tanks - prelude to modern tanks, V2 rockets - prelude to rockets for NASA, MG42/FG42 - prelude to M60. The allied victors pilfered their technology and made it their own postwar.
You can't even name your son Adolf in Germany. I'm not sure anyone who isn't a right wing nationalist nut has anything good to say. If anything I always detect a profound sense of shame when it comes to the war.

How in God's name are these people even remotely Irish?
I went to my alumni dinner. Even after missing half the dinners this season people knew me. Did 4 or 5 glasses of wine there mostly because after reception the girl responsible for alcohol kept topping me up at the dining table.
Then I went to the Irish "sports bar". I walk in and one of the...
I'm so happy. I came back to the city for a dinner and walked 4km during rush hour. I love it. Dodging cars, dodging people, the energy. I parked myself in the posh food hall of the Google building in the financial district and I'm surrounded by music, people talking and the noise of the food...
What I don't get is how USC ranks academically. If you can't get into a state school that from what I know is known for collegiate sports - do you have any business being in university?
I can imagine people bribing to get athletic scholarships into Harvard.
