  •  The "poor bastards" (1+ / 0-)

    didn't start the war.  Although particularly in the case of World War I I have trouble feeling sorry for the "poor bastards," most of whom went jingoistically into battle expecting a glorious easy victory against the unspeakably perfidious and bestial foe.

    The anecdote about how a breastpocket copy of Also sprach Zarathustra didn't save young German Übermenschen from bullets was already a truism in 1915.

    Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej
