German anti-Scientology film false and intolerant

Say Scientologists everywhere, and like they should know.

“The truth is precisely the opposite of that which the ARD is showing (Until Nothing Remains),” said one Scientology spokesman. “This crap could have come from us,” he might have added.

Scientology – eine “faschistoide Welt” – and we (as in you) Germans should know.


More risk assessment, please

Last year, Germany had considered accepting Guantanamo prisoners but later backed off amid concerns that the men could prove to be dangerous. Duh?

This year, Germany is doing the same thing.

Auch in Zukunft will Deutschland die Aufnahme von Guantanamo-Häftlingen im Einzelfall prüfen.

You can’t depend on ANYBODY these days

Sheesh. Of all folks (or Volks, if you prefer), rumor has it that the Germans are now beginning to lose thier angst about climate change. Now, of all times. Where angst is in the air and everywhere, I mean (they’re scared of freakin’ daylight savings time for crying out loud).

According to a Spiegel survey – and Spiegel Leser wissen mehr (Spiegel readers know more) – only a piddly 42 percent of Germans lose sleep at night anymore when it comes to global warming. Pitiful, people.

Come on, now. Get with the plan, Volks. Boo! Or something.

Heute hält jeder dritte Deutsche die Prognose der Klimaforscher, nach der es langfristig immer wärmer wird, nicht für zuverlässig.

Germans endangered by time change again

What a difference an hour makes. If you’re German, that is.

German sleep researchers are concerned, some might even say downright nervous about the coming daylight savings time change here.

The German biological time system being much more sensitive than say, uh, everybody else’s out there, pushing back/forward the clock just a mere hour can be an extremely stressfull undertaking here and can even lead to untimely German heart attacks. Or could. Maybe. Maybe not though, too. Hard to say for sure.

Doesn’t anybody care? Other than not me, I mean?

“Richtig gewöhnen wir uns daran nie.”

When weathermen go bad

Weather he’s guilty or not…

Popular German weatherman Joerg Kachelmann was arrested in Frankfurt after his long-standing girlfriend claimed that he had forced sexual relations with her after an argument, something he denies vehemently.

But other than that, Kachelmann reports that it’s going to remain generally warm and even a bit humid in the next few days, especially for him, with a mild chance of rain and thunder showers, which he’ll miss, should they happen, him being in jail and all.

“Without wishing to prejudice legal proceedings, we regard it as unthinkable that the accusations could be correct.”
