This alleged inconsistency between Goerings sexual debut and National Socialist views on birth is farfetched. I don't know when the nazis started to advocate for a higher birthrate among women. But if we look at Goerings biography we will see that there is nothing strange about his rather late sexual debut. A debut that was to take place only less than a year after his initiation into the NS movement.panzermahn wrote:Don't be silly .. I am a straight guyDavid W wrote:Why are you embarrassed?

It's quite uncommon for men at that time to lose their virginity at that late age when National Socialist policy is to encourage higher German birthrate
whoa, whoa! baaaad idea.The dogs were trained by Russians during World War II to be used against German tanks. Unfortunately, the Russians trained the dogs by placing food under their own tanks; consequently, in battle the dogs were as likely to run beneath a Russian tank as were to run under a German tank (the intended target). Also, the dogs were reluctant to run towards an active tank, and as such became a menace to everyone on the battlefield. In 1942, after the dogs forced an entire Russian tank division into retreat, the Russians withdrew the use of the dog mine.
Exploding hamsters were an obscure in-joke in the early years of the Finnish computer magazine MikroBITTI.
From time to time, various articles in the magazine would include a comment about hamsters and Scotch tape (known as teippi in Finnish). As long as the hamsters were taped up, they were safe, but freeing a hamster from tape would cause it to explode.
The magazine staff were conscious of the obscurity of the joke and publicly admitted it. However, no explanation was ever given, and the joke fell into disuse in the 1990s.
The joke may have been influenced by hand grenade training in the Finnish Defence Forces.
source:Bat bombs were tiny incendiary bombs attached to bats, that were developed by the United States during World War II with the hope of attacking mainland Japan. Four biological factors gave promise to this plan. First, bats occur in large numbers (four of the caves in Texas are each occupied by several million bats). Second, bats can carry more than their own weight in flight (females carry their young — sometimes twins). Third, bats hibernate, and while dormant they do not require food or complicated maintenance. Fourth, bats fly in darkness, then find secretive places (such as flammable buildings) to hide in daylight.
The plan was to release bomb-laden bats at night over Japanese industrial targets. The flying bats would disperse widely, then at dawn they would hide in buildings and shortly thereafter built-in timers would ignite the bombs, causing widespread fires and chaos. The bat bomb idea was conceived by dental surgeon Lytle S. Adams, who submitted it to the White House in January, 1942, where it was subsequently approved by President Roosevelt. Adams was recruited to research and obtain a suitable supply of bats.
Personally I believe version 2 sounds very strange and a bit unreal. But thats just my personal view.
