Some people just cannot stay on topic. You ask about baked goods and they throw politics into the discussion. They're worse than that dog in the movie "Up"...SQUIRREL!
I don't have much trouble with it, but some people are just one track minded. I see it as their problem, not mine.
I try my best to stay on the topic of a question but I hear what you are saying. I see that a lot and just try and ignore it but sometimes, it's not easy!
More or less, though off topic discussions are not uncommon
Should we go off topic with this one? I think we should. We do it quite often, with each other...
Another discussion about firearms? But the point here is not to.
Who gives a shit about the topic, you Bulgarian tooth-fairy... Let's start with...
One of those Hitler's "great ideas"... He was an idiot, when it came to actually trying to win a war. Luckily for all of us.
Oh I'm going to get in trouble for this one especially in this politically correct age. Hitler, Nazis, evil and all that yes they were horrible and yata yata.
However.... the Germans were very good with their tech, I dont know this tank, only 2 of them build so it's probably crap but the Panzerkampfvagen I or Tiger tank was a force to be goddamn reckoned with. Not only that but the Sturmgewehr 44 was a powerful weapon too. People can say anything about the Germans but if it took all the allies in order to stop Germany then they were truly powerful. I'm not mentioning Japan or Italy because they're more on the side, especially Italy that was a total joke military wise.
And damn you for making me go off topic.
You know the story about the World's first fighter jet, Me-262, right? It really could've changed the tide of the war.
Then came Mr. Hilter! (Monty Python reference) He decided, it would be a good idea to convert most of the unfinished fighters into bombers. Well, let's see... Highly reduced speed, highly reduced range and highly reduced controllability. Flunked? Yeah.
Let's be glad he made that choice. Though why did he meddle in the tech? He wasnt competent in that field. I guess he just saw what worked and didnt want to risk with something untested.
It's all over the history, that supreme leaders have wanted to meddle with working technology and install their dreams against the laws of physics.
One such example is actually from our neighbors - Sweden. Their king wanted to build the most powerful war ship back in the 17th or 18th century. He had no idea of how to design a working ship, but he wanted it to be full of payload, astonishing amount of cannons and the firepower that would show the world, that Swedes really ruled the waters with their "gunship".
Well, after they had put in the waters, with great ceremonies... The ship sailed for a couple hundred of metres, dipped over, and sanked for good.
But supposedly smart people made this how did they not object? Rulers should not have the final word!
Outstanding comment Lips!
And welcome to Amirite!
Oh good! We need more active members.
I like how you opened up, let it out - very cool.
Strong, independent, well spoken people keep this place cookin!
No, not really.
My face kinda looks like that, but I'm an old fart. Just turned 67 the other day.
I am a little overweight but not, .... flamboyant as the comic appears to be.
I poke fun at people some times. I'm OK with poking fun at myself too.
Sounds like a very healthy attitude!
I know the OP, ,
I bet he'll let us slide.
But just this once!
Happy birthday, Budwick! Albeit a bit delayed, I admit.
Thank you Zonkey!
I still think this anon attack is a bit controversial.
How can anybody have an opinion of their own, if they are unwilling to reveal themselves to the public? I've never had a single anon post on this site. Never will. That's my political view. The freedom of speech is for those, who are willing to stand by their words.
We need more active people, but not if they are sock accounts.
Since Lucifer is an angel as well... That does raise a question, are you a fallen or just a regular, rather dull one? Nothing wrong with dull. I'm dull-minded. Look, I even gurgle with liquid helium.
I can, but I certainly know people who can't. They'll throw in a political rant into a question that has fuck-all to do with politics. It shows some people have a one-track mind and the imaginative capacity of a flea.
I think I am an offender on this front.
I'll try to do better.
But, .... maybe,... I should be spanked?!
Ooops - I kinda went off topic.
Of course I can, but I have to admit, at times I really enjoy Zonkey's methods of brining something off topic. It certainly makes things more interesting at times.
What do you mean? I'm strictly business, especially if it's monkey business!
I tried to make a chocolate souffle once. I ended up with a chocolate souffloppe.
