  1. "ae" == "ä" As for the OP, you really don't need German to work in Germany. Try these guys in FFM http://www.quest-online.de/

  3. The libertarian argument assumes that people are rational. Because circa 10-15% of people suffer from some form of psychopathy it is a certainty that a fair proportion of the population will reject (and act against) the norms and methods adopted by the majority.
  4. Funnily enough recent BMW Chief Designers were non-German. Chris Bangle is an American Bangle overhauled the entire BMW design language along lines that many thought was less attractive than the pre-flame-surfaced models. That's where the phrase "The car bangle spanner-ed" comes from. Adrian van Hooydonk is Dutch
  5. 1. Maybe because Empire != Federal State 2. India was probable the oldest empire - where a roughly corresponding equivalent state is still in existence. "The Maurya Empire was a geographically extensive and powerful empire in ancient India, ruled by the Mauryan dynasty from 321 to 185 BCE. The Empire was founded in 322 BC by Chandragupta Maurya who rapidly expanded his power westwards across central and western India, taking advantage of the disruptions of local powers in the wake of the withdrawal westward by Alexander the Great. By 320 BCE, the empire had fully occupied past northwestern India as well as defeating and conquering the satraps left by Alexander. It has been estimated that the Maurya Dynasty controlled an unprecedented one-third of the world's entire economy, was home to one-third of the world's population at the time (an estimated 50 million out of 150 million humans), contained the world's largest city of the time (Pataliputra, estimated to be larger than Rome under Emperor Trajan) and according to Megasthenes, the empire wielded a military of 600,000 infantry, 30,000 cavalry, and 9,000 war elephants." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire#Early_empires "For the next 1500 years, India produced its classical civilizations such as the Rashtrakutas, Hoysalas and Western Gangas. During this period India is estimated to have had the largest economy of the ancient and medieval world between the 1st and 17th centuries AD, controlling between one third and one fourth of the world's wealth up to the time of the Marathas, from whence it rapidly declined during European rule." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_history_of_India

  10. From the OP's link "27. Get the world out of the Red and bring back Brown. For all his misgivings I genuinely believe he is capabable of stabilising the whole mess .... on a world basis. People were too quick to get the boot into him ... ok some of it may be warranted .... but the loonies we have at the helm along with the euro muppets showing as much vision and solidarity as a student protest coupled Chinese protectionisim and the USA terrified and holding their breath could bring down the whole card house. Cameron needs to ask Brown to come in and provide a clear plan for all countries to follow. Once the ship is steady then he can go back to whatever he is doing now. But for the sake of this generation get that man back in ASAP."
  11. maybe Wortwoertlich meine Damen und Herren - keine Rettungsaktionen mehr oder Klar und deutlich meine Damen und Herren - keine Rettungsaktionen mehr maybe...
