Not a Yahtzee

Not a Yahtzee

You might have to say “yahtzee” out loud to get the joke.

Pretty much how the German government reacts whenever Nazis are mentioned, if German soldiers does something violent somewhere, or if anything that could in anyway make people think of Nazis happens. They’re quite paranoid about the subject.

Hello Paranoia...

@Siamlan YES! As a descendant from a Chinese-Filipino family, thank you for pointing out Japan and their crap. Everyone pointed at Germany, but nobody had fingers towards Japan or Russia. It's basically how the majority portrays it; blame whoever everyone else blames. Worst of it; Japan decided to turn around from being vicious and torturous to playing victim when America dropped the nukes.

In the German side of my family, we call the game "Kniffel" instead of "Yahtzee." Not sure if it's that way with anyone else.

My family hasn't been to Germany since 1845, but we passed down the customs and language until my dad was born in 1918--the anti-German sentiment was strong, so they decided not to teach him the language, so I had to pick it up in college. I think it is sad to hate anyone, but two things strike me about the German guilt complex still going on: 1. Stalin killed more peoplle than Hitler's soldiers, but no one blames him since he was an Ally then, and 2. Japan has never acknowledged her war crimes, and none of her big generals involved in germ warfare, torture or ruthless killing faced trial. If anyone should feel guilt, it's Japan.

Awww, I get all bleary-eyed at all the nice '<hug Germany> or <3 Germany comments.

<sniffle> <pulls out hanky> <bloooort> <wipes nose>.

Love the SatW comics... sooo great.

But for me it does so apply. I am one of the 'old farts' around here, so, yeah, I have parents that were born at the time.
Mind you, my father was born 1932, my mother seven years later... so , no, they didn't have anything to do either with any war-crimes, or with supporting Hitler. Yet the mantra: "Never forget, never repeat" is soooo appropriate.

Somehow I still feel the need to apologize for something I didn't do, or didn't have any chance of stopping.
Irrational, I know... but it has been ingrained deeply.

I have so many friends from across the globe: Dutch, Swedish, US-Americans, English, Scottish. We get along just great.

The funniest/most-screwed-up thing (depending on how you want to look at it) happened when I visited my mate in London in 1991. I was 21 at the time.
He is English but speaks an absolutely flawless German. He asked me to refresh his German a bit during my stay (not that he needed it) so we gabbled away in German a lot, even in public. An old lady overheard us in the London tube, and she mumbled, not really under her breath: "Look at them damn Nazis."

We just looked at each other while keeping up our conversation and then switched to perfect cockney accent in mid-sentence (yeah, I visited London often at that time, so I actually had a chance to pull off a few sentences in that accent). The mortified look on that lady's face was just worth it.

Later at home my mate apologized to me for that incident. Strange, isn't it?!?

I like how people love germany, but if they get pissed at a german for any reason - The nazi thing comes up. Lets not forget the german people suffered ALOT during WW2 and especially after it was over for a LONG time. I mean the berlin wall was still standing up until 1989 - seperating friends, relatives and closest family.

I mean, if you gonna hate on germany, then you may aswell hate on Japan and Italy. <-- I take that back, don't hate at anyone.

Germans shouldn't be like this because of their history. It's not the today's German's fault :(

Poor Germany the Nazi-thing is so deep in you. No one wants to be called a Nazi.

Joo, I would be too if my country had a messed up history like that
