Invasions East and West

The brilliant plan in case of a Soviet invasion? Retreat all to Italy, hold the ground there, and wait for American reinforcements.

Wait a minute, you guys ( well, mostly the british and american troops in western .de but still ) were supposed to invade Any Day Now for most of my childhood, not the other way around!
( no, I don't think there was much of a difference in propaganda full-of-shitness on either side of the border )

Whenever I see that thing or a variant of it this pops up in my head:
Du häßlicher Vogel, wirst du einst
Mir in die Hände fallen;
So rupfe ich dir die Federn aus
Und hacke dir ab die Krallen.


Me too!
I wonder what it means.


A quick & ugly translation would be "You ugly bird, if I ever get my hands on you I'll pull out your feathers and cut off your claws". It's from this, and the reference is to the same bird.

South is here.

South, north. Goes to show how earthbound we are. You don't have to get very far from home to recognize that such directions mean nothing.

There also used to be maps with south and east up, although I don't think I ever saw one with west on top.

Something went haywire with the quoting mechanism.
Don't blame us.

That's more nesting than a kookaburra could fashion.
