I haven't found article called "German weakling" in Wikipedia on any language. Maybe I should create one?

Let's summarize what we know about them then:
-- Have little girl mentality.
-- Hate themselves, love criminals and foreigners.
-- Hate honest labor, earn their living by writing nonsense.
-- Will freeze and starve.

This is not a proper thread to study the German in. Look at the previous opener - direct questions! A picture of a serious man in a suit. It sets a clear image of how serious the discussions of German ethnography is. Germans respect a person looking serious. This doesn't look serious at all!

>Why are we on a German website? What are they saying on /b/? Why do we shop at LIDL?
From the previous thread, it becomes clear that we shop on LIDL due to the perfect balance between affordable prices and quality food. Netto is perhaps good, it isn't clear yet. No progress on what they're saying in /b/ was achieved.

While the Drachenlord thread is not interesting for me I have to say that it is no disturbance to the board at all - in contrast to the very vocal critics who are quite annoying. I think on imageboards people should be able to deal with things they don't like, in fact I consider being confronted with stuff I don't like a vital part of imageboards. I'm sure there are plenty of people on /b/ who don't like E-Sports or Anime, which both also aren't exactly intellectual topics. Yet no one complains about those, and that's a good thing. Even /int/ took the recent anime thread fairly well. And by "fairly well" I mean that it didn't go thermonuclear butthurt as it was predicted.

It's live and let live, and I'm wary about people who have strong opinions on what should be allowed and what not.

You must mean the war threads. Those were annoying for me, because in my opinion it's normie stuff. We're proud of being a board where we so not discuss recent news. But we do, only that it's war news and (e-)sports news. Things aren't as black and white as some might believe.
>but tolerating that shit here can only lead to a slippery slope.
I disagree here: First of all the thread has been up for half a year, and nothing happened - except one of the haters shitting all over the board and then complaining that he got banned - not sure if it's the bavarian guy here, the wording sounds quite similar, but I'm not sure. Second: I think there are no bad topics, just bad posters. Good posters make good threads out of any topic, and bad posters will ruin any topic. So if bad posters appear they should be removed. But I wouldn't want to proactively remove the topic, if only for not giving people the opportunity to shit in decent topic threads and then claiming they should be removed because they are cancerous.

In short: Removing a topic because some other people are idiots violates my sense of justice.

Have you ever thought about anime, e-sports and Rainer being completely different topics with a wide range of different implications and connections to other things? According to your reasoning exposing people to CP would be something healthy for imageboard dwellers on boards like EC to counter the homophilia of their 'echo chamber'.

Sounds good for me, that's what I want on an imageboard. And you could make a valid point about e-Sport being cancerous when you check the forums and fanbases, lots of toxic kids around there. But those people aren't Ernsts, so problems weren't.
>According to your reasoning
I'm sure my reasoning did not involve made up situations about blatantly illegal topics. But it did include hosting a wide variety of topics to widen my own horizon, especially on the random style boards which I consider both /int/ and /b/ to be.

I was not talking about the war threads, I was talking about the vocal Bernds (some of which actually try to integrate though) and the numerous K*hl meta shit that has gotten more rampant lately.

And yes, there definitely are bad topics, which in turn attract even more bad posters. See: Last days of KC, for starters.

>Removing a topic because some other people are idiots violates my sense of justice.

>Carl Karstens
Where did you dig him up? Skuril!

Recently, some German-ball mentioned that Germany is more tolerant of dialect speakers than other countries. This is correct. I'll just dump my very mildly qualified thoughts on examples of that observation, starting with Carl Karstens. I hope it will be entertaining or at least interesting, but I doubt it. In the latter case, the post will have served me in putting my thoughts in order.

Carl Karstens was an example of a German speaking perfect standard German. He pronounced his voiced s-es correctly, which came natural to him as a northerner and is not unusual. But he did also pronounce St at the start of a word as Scht, which many northerners will not do. He uses correct declension to the point of it being close to atavistic, even in the sixties and seventies ('In unserem Hause' - correct Dative case in spoken language!), and he conjugated all irregular verbs correctly.

But "his" chancellor, the Tocqueville-lover Kurt-Georg Kiesinger, spoke with a very noticable Swabian accent. With a Catholic Swabian accent, on top of it, which historically had little prestige, since the core of Württemberg is traditionally protestant. I played the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0mqxWX7x4k,
and at 1:52, I was certain Kiesinger was Catholic. I looked it up, his mother was, but his father was protestant. Kiesinger studied at the catholic seminary in Rottweil, and he probably picked up the "Nein" at 2:22 there. Certainly not a protestant Swabian nein. He wouldn't have learned that in Ebingen, where it would have been "Noi" in the 1930s for everyone but the doctor and the notary. To get an example of a very slight modern protestant Swabian accent, listen to Boris Palmer, the disproportionally famous mayor of Tübingen.
The video starts with "Wir hamm ja in Tübingen schon lang-ge...", Wir haben ja in Tübingen schon langebut think of it as "Mir hamm ja inn Tübingen schon lang-ge---", which a Swabian Daimler-manager might say when he knows that only other Swabians are in the conference room.
Still far from dialect, which would be something like "Mir henn jô start of pseudo-IPAts'Diːbengɐend of pseudo-IPA scho lang..." for Tübingen. It's what a native auto-mechanic or window maker would say. And that is very likely what Boris Palmer would have said to his fruit-farmer Dad in 1995, when Boris was a weird math-student with political aspirations.

Accent-wise, Theodor Heuss was a similar case to Kurt Georg Kiesinger. You can hear he is from the Württembergian low-lands, although he had learned his voiced s-es and could occasionally make the effort to pronounce them, which puts him miles ahead of me.
At 0:30
>Wär durch dess Land fährdd, siehthd ÄHSS wird ge-bauhd.
In standard German:
>Wer durch das Land fährt, sieht es wird gebaut.
Take note of the 'r' in 'wird'. German speakers will un-grudgingly accept many variants of 'r', from alveolor to guttural, trilled or just fricative, but Kiesingers 'r' is formed in a place that my tongue won't even reach. Still, he became the first president of West Germany.

East Germany wasn't any different in that respect. Listen to Walter Ulbritcht's famous press conference, when he was the worst liar in world history.
>Ich verschde-he ihre Fr​ɑ̃​ge zo:
where z is the voiced alveoloar fricative
Erich Honecker? He remained a Saarland roofer all his life, and still led the 10th largest economy in the world.

The German who said that German is less standardized and centralized than other languages is correct, although I hate his fucking guts and want him to die of a disgusting disease in a cesspool of ill-smelling pus.

It did, that is why I mentioned it. You said irritation is necessary. You made a plea to some sort of libertarian democracy. Every topic is fine. Hence even cp would be fine. cp is different to Rainer or e-sports, but flowers, airplanes, migration, computer hardware, social politics, little children and hunting a single person from the internet down are simply not the same. Their wider implications make them very different topics. You want a moral free, 'rational' discussion perhaps, but you won't get that with beans that run on values, even moral free, rational discussion implies certain values itself. Hence not every topic and post is ok because EC like other boards has users with values that partly define what is accepted and what is not. And while you think you can keep a distance from that, you don't. We are right in the middle of it.

I feel like Germans always carry that human tragedy somewhere in the back of their mind during certain situations. As if asking them "what are Germans like?" causes them to have the smokestacks of Birkenau flash before their eyes for a single moment. In person, a mild anxiety is felt when one jokes about Germanness, as if they await a historical reference that will make them deeply uncomfortable and unsure how to react.

In any case, throughout interactions I have spared them from this. For now.

Personally, I never think about Birkenau when I think of Germans. When I think of Germans I think of Drachenlordfans as average German male between 16-35. I think of supermarket chains of the Autobahn, of industrial areas, country side roads (Landstraßen), the summer heat and grey weather soup on other days. Of Ordnung of course. The war and third Reich of course plays a role as a critical occurrence in history. But many Germans don't understand it is not so much about guilt but a responsibility that comes with it. The so called "culture of guilt" (Schuldkult), but that is not it, they just take this one too personal because they identify with the German nation.

I would recommend reading Christian Kracht's Faserland which is phontically identical with fatherland, but faser is also fiber/filament and seems to allude to the story itself and how it plays out a book that penetrates into 90s Germany and also deals with Germanies history reaching into the present.

It's one of many topics you learn in German schools. I had specified History A-Levels and the time we spent on the Third Reich wasn't longer than industrialization, Weimar and a bit of Cold War.

>Like what, bombing the Balkans or sending submarines to Israel?

Nope. What's your problem? I'm talking about society and social relations not about international 'conflict management'

I mean I knew you would bark since I knew you are one of those. Also, what is bad about never again? Do you want it to happen again? Don't you think what was at work can never happen again? Blatant hate and devaluation of humans happens all the time and Germany history has a special case of that. You see I'm right with my thesis because you want to forget that and you identify with the German nation. I was totally right and your post was just an exemplary case for all of EC to see and prove.

I don't know about you but I think having an Abitur focused on history that dealt with the time from 1800-1990 provides a good base to judge how much time, in that one and a half - two years that Leistungskurse are going, is spent on the topics I imagine to be the same for the colloquium today: French revolution, industrialization, Kaiserreich, WW1, Weimar, NS/ww2/holocaust, cold war, west Germany and GDR. People without A levels in history do significantly less. Mind you that just like the other Ernst (I imagine at least) more than a decade has passed since we went to school.

I'm not even sure if it sits somewhere at my parents house but I was allowed to take my school books on industrialization and Weimar Germany with me, because they were too old. Maybe they even had the same font as Gebhardt by dtv. But I cannot think of the publisher. It was a book with a red-colored cover and white font.

I'd like to back up the Germans and say that it's or rather it was common practice to have these kinds of books made. They are broad, but also detailed works that could showcase the entry to the university level of a field to an interested student at a Gymnasium.
They are not used in whole (if at all) during regular schooling, they are more for research assignments and sending curious students to look up what they are interested in in them.
Otherwise they just sit at the library. For history books, I guess works like these serve as commonly accepted points that can later be elaborated upon through research.

Though we never got to the level of monumentality the Germans did by the looks.
First is the "Lexicon of world literature" I remember using a lot, second is the "History of Hungarian literature", commonly known as "The Spinach" and the last is a series of anthologies and essays on "isms" like "Romanticism" or "Realism" and so on.

Thanks for all the replies. That's more or less what I've suspected. It's fairly dry and I could barely finish vol. 2 (reformation to the age of absolutism). So no way it's suitable for a high school reading list now.

They might. I've seen some bread there that looks like that. I'll investigate further if they have this landbread but I'm not confident. I think they know their market, even their promotional material is almost bread nationalism material for us.

The real question is - do Germans have pão com chouriço? It mixes bread and sausages, it should be a hit. If it's not there yet, perhaps there is a market opportunity.

They are nothing special unless you like cinnamon, a proper one with good quality dough like good puff pastry plus cinnamon is not bad, it's just that I personally love cinnamon. Even home made Schweineohren with coarse sugar aren't bad, they are just baked slices of sugared puff pastry.
Yeah, Schweineohren, basically like cookies, crunchy puff pastry...

A tier or two higher is an Apfelstrudel which is basically the same as you know, just bigger and filled with pieces of apple. Now that one is really awesome.

And, I really have to admit that most Franzbrötchen became kinda meh at best and the ones from an expensive artisan bakery just are not worth the price imo. Most bakeries, small shops, supermarkets, gas stations and so on got worse and worse Franzbrötchen supplied over the last 10 or so years. Shitty dough, shitty cinnamon, soaked in weird shit and so on.

Here are some other local bakery goods: Hanseat and Amerikaner.
Hanseat are 2 pieces of flat cookie with hardened, sweet red Jam beteen them. Dunno what the Jam is, cherry? I don't know. Sugar frosting on top. Too sweet for my liking, I dunno if that was always the case. Would be decent with lower diabetis content. I swear it had less sugar when I was a kid 20 years ago...

Amerikaner: Tasty but also sweeet. Some stuffy really thick dough, probably fat/oil and backing powder or yeast and obviously flour, covered with frosting which contains lemon juice, usually or mostly just white and no choc in the north where I am from. I like it.

The best sweet pastries I can get are expensive ones from 1-2 Artisan bakeries within roughly 2 Kilometers, the rest is kinda crap. It is somewhat better in more expensive parts of the city, around the center and near some other local centers, but since I am living in a shithole part...

Long post is long.

If you look anywhere in the western half of Europe, from the far north to the far south, you might find that France, while possibly worse than others, was far from alone in its suppression of minority languages or in treating nonstandard ways of speaking as a career disadvantage throughout much of the 20th century. Instead, I think it was a case of the Germanosphere and a few others being particularly cool about nonstandard varieties of the main language (less so about completely different minority languages).

>pronounced his voiced s-es correctly

>The German who said that German is less standardized and centralized than other languages is correct
I don't think I said that, but…
>I hate his fucking guts and want him to die of a disgusting disease
…why the hate? If you were talking about me there, did I write anything in >>75880 or >>75896 that triggered your butthurt? Perhaps you are mistaking me for somebody else? As I've mentioned before, I'm afraid people sometimes underestimate the number of distinct German posters on /int/.

The Third Reich is, of course, far from the only topic covered, but I've seen it pop up again and again in one form or another, at every stage of secondary school, including in subjects other than history (not physics, of course, but think Deutschunterricht, for example), and I can see how some pupils feel a bit less would have sufficed. In my case, history class covered history largely chronologically starting with Antiquity, so the Third Reich should have been done exactly once, in the later years of secondary school, but I don't remember if that was the case, I think it was more than once, although perhaps only once at great length and in more detail. I've been told by someone born in the mid-1940s that they completed school (Abitur) in Germany without ever being taught about the Third Reich. School was over before history class reached the 1930s, honni soit qui mal y pense.

>Wow, the Finn was correct.
Correct in guessing that the term's use on EC is related to a board game bestseller? But it isn't. Not sure if you were joking.

I don't know about the non-Germany parts of the Germanosphere, but in (before 1990: West) Germany, each state (Land) of the Federal Republic (Bund) decides on its own education matters (Bildung ist Ländersache). This means that school systems differ from state to state. For example, a state may choose to mandate 6 years of elementary school instead of the usual 4, decide that every other Saturday is a school day, decide what subjects are taught at what stage, and may handle Religionsunterricht in a very different way. Systems also differ in what happens after elementary school: there may be more than one type of secondary school (the term "high school" wouldn't make much sense as I think no German state has a "middle school" separate from a "high school"), and each type in each of the 16 states may use a different history book, not to mention some pupils will opt for history Leistungskurs for the last years of school and use a book different from the one used in regular history classes. So it's possible there are many different "high school" history books in use at any given time, and even if the one you posted is one of them, it may only reach a small fraction of high school pupils. Fun fact: French and German professionals have developed a common history book for use in both countries' schools, only differing in language. I think a German state bordering France was involved in the project or at least adopted the book for its schools. During my school career, we were handed successive history books (had only one at any one time) of which we skipped quite a lot, and sometimes the teacher would bring additional texts from elsewhere.

I hear two different intonations but otherwise the same vowel qualities. The north has an [ɛː]→[eː] merger (ask if you want the details), but I don't hear [ɛː] in your file. To me, the first word sounds like "Beere" or "Ehre" (or "Ähre" spoken by a northerner), the second word sounds like "Ehre" (or "Ähre" spoken by a northerner).

When I saw lots of e-mail addresses by (mostly young adult) immigrants / foreigners in Germany in 2020, about 90% were G*, the rest mostly Outlook, Hotmail or their employer's corporate domain. Made me wonder if it's the same ratio for non-immigrant Germans. I think G* is vanilla by now. But I think a peculiarity of the Germanosphere was the high market share Mozilla enjoyed over competing internet browsers while the rest of the world used >90% MSIE, and later largely dropped MSIE in favour of Chrome when that became a thing. Of course, Mozilla did their best to make people abandon Firefox, even here eventually. And some old people (which still constitute a sizable part of this thread's subject matter) would probably go "wtf is 'internet browser'???" while using one everyday on their mobile surveillance device in order to google their way to their GMX e-mail login site.
