    The distance from the tip of your thumb to the tip of your little finger if you fan out your fingers, is the exact same measurement as that from nipple to nipple, unless you're a fattyboombatty with a bit of an overhang.

    You'd need to do both in order to provide a useful comparison.

    In Iceland there are laws governing what names people can have. They are really strict laws.

    In Portugal there is a special club for people called 'Jose'. Kind of like the Masons, but just for people called Jose. They hold get togethers and charity events and look after each other in times of trouble and stuff.

    The sticker on a bar of imperial leather is there to lay the soap on when not in use, to stop it from sticking to your sink.

    I called bullshit on that and checked a map. Now I don't know if anything I know is real anymore.

    I heard this a long time ago, and indeed use it for same (stealth /isPosh post), but, if it's really true, why is the sticker recessed on a new bar, thus rendering it impossible to use in this way for some time?

    Eh? Eh??

    Blackletter ("Fraktur") script was more or less common in Germany until WW2. Its use is in hindsight often is considered nazi, or at least, ultra-rightist nationalist.

    The reason why it was abolished wasn't that allies/democrats forbade it after WW2, it was that Hitler forbade the "Schwabacher Jew letters" in 1941.

    And while we're at it, the Olympic torch relay was introduced by the nazi games in 1936.

    Did I mention that the nazis introduced Mother's Day in Germany too?

    edit: Worker's Day too.

    Then there was the Autobahn etc... did we actually ever accomplish anything that wasn't nazi!?

    Many nationalists claimed blackletters and Gothic architecture to be genuinely German though, but they were actually French.

    This one really surprised me. Having looked up the reasons it all seems a bit isolationist and controlling, especially as laws on given names is a weird place to make a stand on your national identity.

    That redeems everything. The nazis were just a big bunch of softies at heart.

    Yea, they're really misunderstood. They wanted to spread love to the world, and when the world didn't want it, they conquered it. To spread their love.

    Pretty much proof of national identity failure/inferiority complex if you ask me.

    I tried that with the moon... don't know if I'm doing it wrong, but it didn't seem to work.
