Cute article. Mostly the news is filled with stories of human misery, so it's nice to get a cheerful piece once in a while.

who gives a fuck if its the most evil thing ever?!
seriously, you sound like you're proud of the title "the most evil massmurderers in history"!
we germans, at least, should be careful of how we look back to our history...
you say you're not ashamed of beeing a german?
well, I'm not as well...
but when I remember that my grandparents lived in this world and supported or didn't go against it, I'm very ashamed to belong to them!
I'd rather die then watch something like this going on, and they should have acted the same way...
after all, humans are cruel, there's no doubt about that...
My thoughts exactly.

The weird thing is that there's still nazism in the world - not only in Europe, even in the US.
It's like a bad virus ideology - SARS for the brain...
No I didn´t see it as contest as well. Usually contests are about positive things. But I am from historic section, every time a german historian says that others are evil, he has to say something like: "but of course, we are most evil". Thats standart, can´t avoid it if you don´t want to start a sense- + end- less discussion.

nowadays Germans are turned into pussy
constantly bitching whining and apolyging and blaming videogames
I canīt deny that...

Someday we will face real problems and than, nobody will think about WWII or video games (not true I will always think about them, even after death)
To be honest I think it wouldnīt be bad, if some other countrys started to reflect on their ways as well.
