Lol, I hope that wasn't a poke at the Germans. They should be treated with so much respect and dignity. Their work ethics are superb - something that the rest of Europe should hang their heads in shame at. Very disciplined and NOT comunist. The era of socialist/USSR controlled germany is long gone, and almost completely forgotton. Have you been there? Even met German people. I'm envyous. There so intelligent, their country is so clean, and the recylce everything. The worlds best engineers today, easily. Us Brits should be proud to be in the EU with them.

The last 60years haven't been easy for them, yet they've made themselves the richest country in the EU, and 3rd in the world all through hardwork. It's quite funny how you commented on Germany like that, I was reading the Guardian news paper I found in my room while tidying it. A month old or summint, all about the German general elections. Sounds democratic to me. Shame the Head of State of Canada is still the British queen.

No, Nik has been living in the US whichis not communism...now, he comes to Germany. I'm wondering if he's taking it cool or if he has a hard time. Remember, in a communist world, everything is shared, like P2P, but legal

But it's not a communist world. Where have you gotten this Idea from? It's true that Eastern Germany was ocuppied by the Soviets untill (I think 1986), but it was exactly that. Ocuppied. It's a Democratic free world. No communism at all.

WTH? Economics teacher...guess what! You're wrong! Now, I have the proof that Germany is Democratic Capitalist (This is US and Canada and such) I thought they were communist still. Anyways, thanks man!

No probs. Lets just say the Germans have had a profoundly sad and difficult history. Many countries do. So respect them.

Awesome! I love Germany, I love the culture! Their language is also very amazing. Infact it's why I'm taking German B1-B2 (Benchmark 1 and Benchmark 2).

ich bin Auslander und spreche nicht gut Deutsch!

Are you kidding me? Germany was a world power in the early 20th Century. They almost won the Second World War! It was more or less Germany against the world. Of course they suffered hardship upon the loss of WWI and WWII (considering what they were up against they did well) but they are still a very strong and well built country. Yet again they are gaining grounds in the political and economic world to compete with the world powers. So difficult history yes, sad? Not at all.
