And for female boomers the age was 42 to 48. Kicked out to find something else. I took the lesson to heart. I work well, I won’t work a minute more than what I am paid for. I learned it late, I am glad that the next generations saw the writing on the wall and said stuff the companies.
That effect hit all of the warring countries. What I am talking about is poisoned ground, ground so filled with non-exploded shells that peasants knew they were risking their lives by plowing their fields, wiped out villages, millions of acres of land reduced to torn earth, earth so full of bodies you would find bones just by digging a hole. Even now you will find holes coming from WWI fighting and unexploded ordinance from that time, on top of WWII ordinance. And then there were the deliberate civilian massacres to throw the population on the roads and hamper the enemy. A brand new Prussian tactic.
Have they been zombified? Because if they suddenly became 70 years old ladies the dog should be a skeleton.
the 12 based system (duodecimal) is way older than that, the Babylonians used it as well as numerous other civilisations. That’s why we have 12 hours, 12 months, 12 zodiac signs… You count the phalanxes of one hand with your thumb as a pointer. I remember reading about a Native American people who used a 4 based system, using the space between the fingers. Human ingenuity is unending.
Of course, he lunges at the pizza without waiting for his family to be served too.

Please, not that hogwash again. WWI, they never received a single military strike inside their borders but destroyed one fifth of France and a good part of Belgium to start with. Yes, the Versailles treaty was harsh, however the treaty of the 1870 war when they were the winners was even harsher to the French (more money, a good part of north-east France with the richest coal and iron mines and industries) and yet the French did pay and recovered. The German after WWI fabricated an economic crisis to avoid paying. I will allow the Dantzig corridor was the stupidest and most destructive idea of the treaty, for the rest…
As well, the German troops and population believed that they were betrayed, stabbed in the back, when their leaders sued for peace when they were still fighting on foreign land. Because the war didn’t reach their border they refused to understand what the German high command realised, they were going to lose the war. After four years of trashing other countries and going after the civil population (see the Belgium massacres) the troops entering Germany would have no pity, so to avoid that the Germans sued for peace. Hitler rode on that alternative fact to rile people.
As for the usual ‘Hitler revived the economy’, the Weimar economy had revived on its own and was starting to recover well when Hitler became Chancellor (the Weimar Republic survived ten years after the economic crash). He didn’t produce wealth, he rode on the growing economy revival produced by his predecessors. And spent it all.
Sorry, as a history buff and living in the old battlefields of WWI I have a red button about it.
Not for my 95 years old mother :)
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a real case here.
Very easy. The one well dressed is a lady whose brain is slowly dying, the one with the scarf is a sharp brained homeless lady with a heart of gold.
