    What a bunch of silly-billies the snowflakes are.

    Nothing to do with the Olympics, B. Just keep thinking like a white, first world Anglophone as opposed to like, I dunno, a Korean.

    I mean, before the WO, all 3 group were arguing more than ever after 1 yr of Trump. After WO, all is sweet.

    Must be Trump.

    Where were the WO again? Was it in Washington, DC? Must have been, cos it's all down to Trump.

    If you're applying that statement to the 1930s, it really shows you know the best part of jack **** about the causes of WW2.

    The causes are certainly endlessly debatable. At least, many Germans have made B's same point to me, over the years; essentially rebuking us for not intervening sooner to nip the thing in the bud.
    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."

    In fairness to the Donald, he was handed a proper hospital pass there. Not sure what else he could do.

    Waste of time negotiating with the Little Rocket Man; we will do what has to be done, as the man said.

    Not at the academic level. The Stufenplanners have won the argument. Not Versailles, not appeasement, all down to Adolf's loony stufen (step-by-step) plan to risk national destruction of a war of global domination that he described in his two books (2nd unpublished) in the '20s.

    ww2 = Stufenplan.
    ww1 = Fischer thesis.

    No need to thank me.

    I do find the way historians act as though theorising is a zero-sum game very funny.

    You do express a most touching faith in academe, g.

    By the time you've got your knees brown you will come to appreciate that daft lads who've spent their whole lives at school have learnt the square root of fck all.

    University of Life. School of Hard Knocks. That's where you want to take your learning.

    My uncle (God rest his soul) was your actual professor of your actual modern history in one of the biggest universities in the British Isles. I once saw a seagull sh1t on his head and he rubbed it in, thinking it was a raindrop.

    Make of that what you will.

    There you go. You can't trust 'em, b. That's why I don't believe scientists or doctors either.
