It really is about Germans ******* children, believe me.

BTW Jija is known for being a nazi in the German forum very well, so don't pay attention to him destroying this wonderful thread. I guess he could even laugh about sth like this:

How about this: I would translate it in English and then you would hire a freelancer to make an independent translation?

I think it's OK to laugh about that. But not about WWII in general.

my friend you still play that you don't understand, but I know you understand.


-its not my game
-I am not loughing about WWII Victims
-Of course I am not a nazi
-It's not necassary to hire a freelance translator

I know whats written there and I know why you don't want to tell it the forum
You wrtite
Ethnic classification of germans (like nazis did to other, btw)
-It's German to **** Kids
-It's German to be a (mass)murder
-It's German to be dirty bastards
-It's German to be stupid

like animals

After offering my friendship you repilied with your link as an answer why you not want to be my friend, leading to a blog obvios written by you, and you had written your study before I wrote my first "nazi-comment" in this thread.
So why. There are two options
First Option: You really hate me, because you see under my avatar (GER) and i think you know what "GER" stands for. And because your "ethic" study is older than my first comment here, you hate me already before because of "GER", although you know nothing about me.
Second Option: You answered in ironic way to my first comment, so it means, you mean that your study is ironic- so you made jokes about WWII Victims, because you placed such a funny simley after your comment.

But after that I didn't think you wanted to make a joke

So there is only this Option left.
You don't want to have a Germans as a friend, because your "ethnic" study tells you better not to have one.

The "game" Germans are forced to play again and again had already started before this thread and even earlier when you wrote down your "ethnic" study. And don't you think someday the Germans, who are one of the few nations in the world, who keep the renember to the victims and the evil they did to the world alive, getting kind of bored, frustrated playing the same game again and again- The game beeing flamed, flaming back, beeing flamed, flaming back and see that flaming back is useless, when again somebody like you appears?

Or do you want to tell me now after all your "ethnic" study is a joke overall? A joke on the shoulders of WWII Victims and raped Kids?

Yes, first I thought you making a joke, but after all I have to think know, that you really hate Germans

NY's is in a league of its own because no skyline has the huge numbers of pre-WW II masterpieces that NY does.

What the hell's going on here? Stop the political/historical/ethnological/whatever bullcrap and turn back to this exciting topic of debating which is the friggin most beautiful skyline in the world! Got it?

I voted for Hong Kong. No other city in the world loves it's tall buildings as much as Hong Kong does. New York of course is the obvious runner up, but while NYC is awesome in the daytime, Hong Kong is spectacular in the day and in the night (what other city has a laser light show every night using the skyline?).

As well the natural beauty of the harbour and the mountains behind the skyline make it quite unforgettable.

Yes, it is. And with statements like this, you've probably provoked many Germans and Europeans to vote for Frankfurt even if it might seem ridiculous. There's still a wide range between 'being on top' and 'not being a match'. I'd see Frankfurt in upper mid-range, and that's where it is in the poll result.

Anyway, I didn't vote for Frankfurt because I strongly agree with this:

Frankfurt isn't in the "upper mid-range" in this poll, but gets the bronze medal (#3)!


Absolutely justified, of course

Hong Kong for being ultra-modern but in a classy way and not trashy like Dubai.
New York for being sophisticated and mature.
Chicago for being a big brute.

So, it's a three-way tie for me.

So basically what you're saying is that all Europeans feel inferior before other skylines and vote for one of their own. I think you hit the nail on the head here.

Most people don't read a thread before they vote in the poll they find there.
