And Joe’s misbehaving again. Put him on a leash or something.
G7 Leaders Meet in Germany – Germany welcomes the leaders of the G-7 wealthy democracies Sunday.
The summit for the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States is being held in a castle in the Bavarian Alps…
“The summit must send not only the message that NATO and the G-7 are more united than ever,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz told German parliament recently, “but also that the democracies of the world stand together against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s imperialism just as they do in the fight against hunger and poverty.”
Four injured after old WWII aircraft bomb explodes in Munich – Four people were injured when an old aircraft bomb exploded at a bridge near Munich’s busy main train station on Wednesday, police said on Twitter, raising the number of wounded from three earlier.
Germans just yawn about this stuff. Happens too often. My personal favorite from a few years back:
It only took thirty minutes for a fake monk to become this Wiesen season’s first Bierleiche. That’s right. The guy was dressed up like a freakin’ monk. But don’t worry about it. He’s in a better place now.
Der Mann habe eine Mönchskutte getragen, sagte die Sprecherin des Sanitätsdienstes Aicher Ambulanz, Ulrike Krivec. “Wir dachten, dass es ein Mönch ist.” Im Laufe der Behandlung habe sich aber herausgestellt, dass es sich bei dem etwa 50 Jahre alten Wiesngast nicht um einen Ordensmann handelte.
Without them, this nutcase might have carried out a mass shooting or something.
To own a semi-automatic 9mm Glock pistol like the kind used in the Munich shootings, a citizen would have had to have been over 18, waited a year for his licence and undergone a psychological evaluation.
He owned it illegally, however. So, like, he’s in BIG trouble with the law now.
Der Deutsch-Iraner nutzte für seine Tat eine 9mm Glock-Pistole. Diese habe der 18-Jährige offenbar illegal besessen, da die Seriennummer der Waffe ausgefeilt war, sagte der Präsident des bayerischen Landeskriminalamts, Robert Heimberger. Eine Erlaubnis für die Waffe besaß der Täter nicht.
PS: We all know what the reaction would have been if this had taken place in Kansas City, folks: Stricter gun control laws would have prevented it. It’s all quite irrational, really.
And kept the new year from starting off with a bang in Munich.
“According to information obtained by the ZEIT the warning was also based upon information that came out of the USA. The French authorities were then of the opinion that these warnings fit the information they themselves had gathered.”
Nach Informationen der ZEIT beruht die Warnung auch auf Informationen, die aus den USA kamen. Die französischen Behörden seien demnach der Ansicht gewesen, dass diese Warnungen zu Informationen passten, von denen sie selbst gehört hätten.
Of all fests? Is nothing heilig anymore? Some folks are already referring to number 182 as the Krisen-Wiesn (crisis Oktoberfest). In your neighborhood tomorrow. If you live in Munich, I mean.
On Munich’s main shopping street on Tuesday, women in abayas—the long robes worn by some Muslim women—were studying lederhosen and dirndls—the revealing shorts and dresses traditional in Bavaria—in the shop windows.
“Asylum seekers in particular from Muslim countries aren’t used to encountering heavily drunk people in public. It could get out of hand.”
The art world was stunned yesterday by the discovery in Munich of 1,500 lost works of art by a lone wolf treasure hunting hardboiled detective American patriot archaeologist college professor on a quest, wearing a fedora and carrying a bullwhip.
The mysterious professor, Prof. Dr. Dr. Prof. I. Jones, refused to comment on the find other than to say that his discovery “raises fresh questions about the Nazis’ attitude to the modern art they loved to hate.”
