Panzer Panzerjäger "Nashorn" (missa thinks, could also be a "Hummel" SP howitser)
Digging a shelter against bombardments under the protective metal body of your vehicle was one of the few privilledges you got as a soldier in an armoured vehicle. Drawing fire from everything the enemy had that could shoot, including airplanes, was the flipside to it...

After ten years of using an infinite number of pirated versions of the above software, I participated in a survey on their website and received a coupon giving me a 60% discount if I purchased the software. So I did.

One sure sign of old age: You now buy software instead of getting it {k}'ed from your hip friends...
reason?

A: You are a complete sellout to white corporate supremacy and nobody hip would want to give you anything!
B: Consequently you have no hip friends who can give you pirated software.
C: But, you can afford to buy software.
D: Software that is YOUR PROPERTY.

In other words: The World©™® works and you are happy.

My (liberal) newspaper's job-section has this useful list for the employees who are thinking about going for some of those tasty management positions, filled with power, prestige, ego boosting, blowjobs (giving not getting, that is...)
- if you have the competitive and predatory spirit it takes, remember to:

-ALWAYS laugh when the boss tells a joke
(funny or not, he's the one with the finger on the FIRED button...)
-NEVER make fun of the boss or other minorities
(the boss as a minority, exactly the sort of thing democracy teaches us to protect and preserve? - hello NEWSPEAK...)
-Poke fun at yourself ("...Down, doggy, down...")
-NEVER take yourself to serioursly, we're all born with a naked tush
(no smart Alecks here, buster, you're a TEAMPLAYER!)
-Exaggerations and understatements are simple ways to make jokes
(don't make it hard on yourself using your imagination or other pinko-commie stuff)
-Stay oriented, and joke about current events, topping the bestseller's are books about cooking, and loosing weight...(gully gee: PARADOX!)
-Use common references, like the fact that smoking is prohibited at school, but the first thing they make you do in art class is an ashtray...
(I'm about to wet my pants over this one!)

Be a popular guy and stay employed - why didn't I think of that?..

DR2 broadcasted a fine documentary by Flemming Lyngse about Mogens Rukov last night. Mogens Rukov teaches scriptwriting at the Danish Film School and wrote the script for The Celebration by Thomas Vinterberg (and worked with the scrips for most other Dogme 95' movies), the success of Danish Filmaking in the nineties owes a lot (or everything) to Mogens Rukov and It was nice to see a lovable old modernist bumbling around in his life filled with paintings, literature, teaching, girl chasing, and the occasional award.

Back in my teens the comic magazine Fart og Tempo ("speed and tempo") featured many great European series like Blueberry, and Mark Valiant but also the lesser known Sci-fi series Luc Orient (called Jim West in Denmark) one of my all-time favourite series which I managed to pick up second-hand in Holland a few years back (lucky for me they were quite common and sold at reasonable prices)

Panzer StuG III, Ausf.G
The armourplate next to the gun is in fact a piece of thin (5 mm) detachable armour called Shürtzen which was fitted to the sides of most German Tanks and SP guns to stop bullets from Russian anti-tank rifles (not rockets from Bazookas as most people believe) The Schürtzen would break off the trajectory of the bullet before it reached the vehicle's hull- or turret armour, and in most cases make it harmless.

The societies we construct are primarely based on an infinite number of rules which we must constantly obey. Yet, the individuals who reach the top levels of these societies usually do so by transgressing the same rules and codes of conduct.

You could almost say that it is not the narrow path that leads to success, but the psychopath...
