Happy Männer Tag & boy isn’t ignorance bliss!

Today is, as Germans formally call it, Christ travels to heaven day, which turns into Men’s Day, the day that German males wheel cases of beer into the forest, drinking the beer as fast as they can and getting trashed as quickly as possible.

It is a little known fact, but 97% of the men […]

Focusing Focus on the Family (Action)

One of the more important, if not crazy nuts, organizations in the United States is Focus on the Family.

Focus on the Family’s goal is to help family thrive, and claims as its mission:

Focus on the Family is a global non-profit Christian organization with a vision for healing brokenness in families, communities and societies […]

Parents Television Council

“Last night’s ‘American Music Awards’ broadcast was nothing short of tasteless and vulgar. Adam Lambert, the second-place finisher in last season’s ‘American Idol’ competition, chose to treat American families to simulated oral sex and other demeaning behavior.”

-Parents Television Council 23 November 2009

I dunno about you, but I don’t think that oral […]

… He Who Pisseth Against The Wall

Seeing this toilet and its warning at Cafe Zeitgeist in Munich reminded me about that video I posted awhile back featuring Pastor Anderson talking about “he who pisseth against the wall”. Unfortunately the original video was taken down, but because many people wanted to make sure you could hear his […]

Holiday Season!

It’s that time of year.

Ascension, Whit Monday, and Corpus Christi fall in rapid fire over the next few weeks.

Three days that in my American-Life weren’t even on my calendar are days off in Germany.

Beer-To-Go

Tomorrow is Ascension, a day that in Thüringen, and probably other parts of Germany, turns into Men’s […]

Germany’s Going Down the Drain

I was recently reminded why Germany, as a country, is an awful, despicable, horrible country.

I bet his in-laws love having him visit…

No Yoga For You!

Re: Yesterday’s Angry Whopper.

If you live in either Indonesia or Malaysia and are Muslim, you probably shouldn’t eat the Angry Whopper—You are specifically forbidden from doing Yoga, so you’d need to find some other way to burn off the 880 calories it offers:

Indonesia has joined Malaysia in banning Muslims from practising yoga that […]

Atheist Commotion

Apparently it’s bad not to believe in God.

Maybe that’s not bad, but telling other people it’s ok to not believe in God is problematic. I first realized this back in November when I read about a piece about a billboard in Denver that read, “Don’t believe in God? You are not alone.”

Eight simple […]

Opposites Opposing

I popped over to Dresden yesterday to see Eurotrippen (Twitter @eurotrippen).

In terms of kindred-spirits, she’s the closest person to me in Germany. My ultimate “girls-weekend” would consist of Eurotrippen, Disenchanted, and me. Hopefully I won’t wait another 11 months before seeing her again. She’s a totally fantastic person, and it was a pleasure to […]

Destination Unknown

Throughout the last several years, conservatives tired of listening to liberals suggest that perhaps America needs some adjustments and new leadership have uttered that wonderful challenge, “If you don’t love America, why don’t you get out?”

It’s implied that the destination can be Canada with its high taxes and horrid universal healthcare, Sweden with its […]
