In an ill-coordinated and haphazard attempt to learn German without actually doing anything, i spent a while browsing for Krautclips on youtube. i came across Der Untergang (Downfall), the excellent film about Hitler’s last days, with Bruno Ganz as a superbly deranged Führer. It’s a pity they don’t show him gobbling entire chocolate cakes but i suppose historical accuracy only goes so far. Anyway, i was amused by the most recent comment to Part 2:

Get some life u annoying cunt and fuck off with ur ideas

At first i thought this was directed at Hitler. Question for historians: how would things be different now if people had greeted famous moustachioed & bearded men with “get some life u annoying cunt and fuck off with ur ideas.”

However, the comment was directed at another commentator.
