very influential country - second only to the US. for example, English are Germans wannabe. Germany is to England what the US is to Australia. heh

ha, Anaxilus - that one made me laugh. but I doubt that it's the Abrams battle tank that makes Irvine so safe.

 

as for handguns - if it wasn't for my issues with cross-dominance and some vague worries about my hearing, I'd be practicing a bit more often.

 

and back to the thread: having lived in Germany for a long time, I associate many things with many things - but the only one I miss today is CURRYWURST

It's 30 years ago that I was in north america, however, I remember the average canadian being slightly less cool and a tad more cultivated than its southern counterpart back then. What I also liked was that the combination of pink and blond wasn't so omnipresent. evil_smiley.gif
