So trivial, yet it really ticks you off.

    Ok, the poppy-seed cake wasn't a goof idea, underways, but it was maybe too fresh?? o_O Still have stomachache. Luckily, I ate just the half portion and leave the rest for home.

    35, I'm f....n' old, now. ;)

    Well, I gotta say. That is one of the things I STILL have not gotten used to on this side of the pond: Tuna on Pizza? Fried eggs on Pizza? Canned corn on pizza? It just ain't right.

    Although I do chuckle (and like) what they used to call Pizza Americana... A sausage pizza smothered in french fries! :) It may have just been a fad. I haven't seen it on a menu in a while.

    And since I'm being opinionated... Neither am I pleased with what some places are calling "pizza" in the USA either. Stuffed crust pizza? Ugh. Well, I guess now I'm trying to compare apples and oranges.

    Have you tried that American staple that they call hush puppies? It's a cornbread ball, reminds me of a scotch egg. Never could get a flavour for them. And how are you getting on with grits?

    Good point, but no. They're almost always served as a side dish for seafood. Especially deep fried seafood.

    I could founder myself on good hushpuppies, so it's probably good that good ones are nearly impossible to find here unless I make them myself.

    Oh, I don't know--maybe they can find a few of my relatives, who in the early 1940s had Buchenwald as their last known address.

    Perhaps they won't be looking that hard though. When I visited Weimar (and the Nationale Mahn und Gedenkstätte Buchenwald) in the early '80s, I got the impression that many of the folks there still regarded the KZs as a "good start". Other than the name change (to Gedenkstätte Buchenwald), it doesn't look like much has changed.

    If they would really found unknown tunnels, there wouldn't be human remains. Maximal objects of art or other stuff would be there, like in the two known tunnels, US Army cleared after liberation.

    It's a whole media hype and we Thuringians are sick of this. Remember "Jonastal"... . ;) The whole media bullshit started in 1992, caused by Boris Jelzin, who made a clumsy comment, that He knows, where the Amber Room is.

    An army of bookwriters/charlatans followed. And all this bullshit went on for 20 years. Today, we luckily know better.

    I was wondering what prompted this discussion. Aha! Of course! Not to be too dismissive, but it does sound a bit like the “Nazi Gold Train” nonsense of a few years back. You would think that, if there was a remaining secret treasure chamber, it would have been found years ago.

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/secret-nazi-tunnels-under-concentration-20173921

    I’d dismiss it as a bit of “boys just want to play at being Indiana Jones” fun, except for the painful emotions that are still very real. They should only disturb the site if they are damned sure there is something there. Certainly not as a treasure hunter stunt. Enough said.

    I knew the legend since I was kid in the 90s. This stupid legend says that "of course" the Ettersberg is like a Swizz Cheese and there's a whole bunker-system unter the surface. Like always told on such places. ;););)

    But we all know, that the Ettersberg isn't the Obersalzberg. ;)

    Buchenwald was just the camp, the Gustloff II facility and some housing complexes around.

    Fish. That's been dipped in batter and fried in oil. Throw in some potatoes and you've got fish & chips.

    Granted, Americans have a predilection for frying things, but they didn't invent the concept.

    Fish and chips, well made, is proof that there is a God who loves us and wants us to be happy.

    Okay, okay. Fish and Chips is definitely a good thing. This might be the proverbial case where the exception proves the rule. :D

    There used to be a walk-up stand at the end of my street that served fresh-caught fish and chips, perfectly done in every way, with malt vinegar, for $8. I've never had anything so good, with the exception of a Katz's pastrami sandwich, in my life.

    The stand closed three years ago, and I'm still grieving. There are places in town here that can do passable fish and chips when I'm in the mood, but nothing anywhere near as good as I got from the late and lamented "Duo's Take Out." It makes me want to cry just to think of it.

    True, although if God had really thought it through, fish would just naturally extrude batter through their skin in lieu of scales.
