Are you sure?

Cel999 can back me up on this but in Germany they treat pigs (schwein) like cattle, so they are very clean and well fed.

I think in the movie "Das Boot" they are making reference to the fact that the meat is racid and has mold growing on the outside. There are few pork plates in germany where they leave the skin on and I can only think of Schweines-Haxe (the forearm of the pig, Yummmy with hot spicy mustard, senf!)...and of course a cold Bier!

I'd be playing more SHIII, but my new ride has come in! ...BMW of course...those silly german engineers, they think of everything!

Gratulieren on the new wheels, Otto! Please, please, please, do not drive like most of the BMW drivers where I live in Ontario: speeding all the time, lane changing with no signals, cutting dangerously in and out of traffic trying to live the Autobahn experience on a crowded highway where most drivers are idiots anyway [not the Autobahn, our local drivers are the idiots.]

BMW's are nice cars, but I've had so many negative experiences with BMW drivers here in Ontario, Canada. Please, Otto, break the stereotype!

Otto, did you buy that baby or lease it? Most of the yuppie wannabes up here lease them and race around in them pretending to be some form of noveau riche. I just can't stand them. Which is a shame, as I'm sure BMW's are finely crafted cars and should not be judged by the twits who operate them recklessly.

I am similarly biased against the Hondas that get all pimped up by kids who then race them recklessly on streets shared by folks of all ages who just want to get safely from A to B.

My buddy in England, who I get to visit every now and then, is a devotee of BMW's. I enjoy riding with him, as he obviously knows how to handle it, so I don't feel like my life is in peril. I drove it once, and it is a dream to drive. I hope you have many years of pleasure with yours.

Trust me... our Autobahn is full of idiots, too. And most parts of it do have speed limits either. Mostly 100km/h (about 62mph).

And it seems that BMW drivers are mostly the same all over the world. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thanks for the input, Goth. We have the impression over here that the Autobahn is some kind of free for all affair. I wasn't aware there were speed restrictions. How are the Mercedes drivers? I find that they tend to be better than the Bimmers, like they are more mature and used to their wealth. But they kind of tick me off as well, thinking that the world is their oyster. Over here they tend to park where they please, we should know they are going to change lanes so they don't have to use signals, etc.

Geez, I think I'm starting to sound like some kind of resentful socialist ranting against the elite. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif That scares me.

Own it, 100%, been saving for three years and it just so happens they improved the model this year...so bonus.

considering that I'm a former jumpmaster, led men in battle and have made big budget decisions in my life...rest assured you would enjoy driving with me...I'm not a risktaker by any mean and I'm a very Conscientious driver. Learned how to really drive while stationed in Germany and 'Goth' is right, there are MORE limitations in Germany than here in North America.

Yep, towns in germany 30km/h
bundestrasses were 100, 80 or 60km/h depending on their construction.

Autobahns were fun, but you had to be alert all the time!

For a short while, I own a german spec mercedes in Germany...it was like driving a water bed around, very loose but cushy! It had some horsepower but the rear wheel drive in the snow scared the heck outta me! I wanted to drive backwards!

How is the lane discipline over there? I've never been to Germany, only the U.K. where I think that drivers pay better attention to being in the proper lane for the speed they are going. Over here in Ontario, especially along the 401, our main highway, people have no clue what they are doing.

This is a particularly galling point with me, as I drive 18-wheelers. We are not allowed in the left lane, so the middle lane is our only passing lane. I repeatedly see morons who sail along in the middle lane, being passed on both sides. They are such self-absorbed idiots, blocking the free flow of traffic and forcing people to pass unsafely on both sides. I would like to reach out and slap them if I could.

And please nobody go on about big trucks intimidating cars with their size. I am aware of that and it bothers me as a professional driver more than it bothers you, drawing negative attention toward us. I tell those guys off on my radio when I see that kind of behaviour. I am aware of how much space I need to stop, and when I see big rigs parked on a car's bumper it infuriates me. But I also get mad when people in cars [or trucks] insist on driving in the middle lane and not moving over for faster traffic.

Otto, I sorely miss the big rear wheel drive cars. I had a 1988 Crown Victoria for ten years, best car I ever had. I grew up on Canadian winters and rear wheel drive. Almost everything now is front drive, and I am tired of it. It has its benefits, but I still yearn for the V8 rear drive.

Right now, because of family situation, I have two leased cars, a 2003 Grand Am and a 2003 Echo. I live just around the corner from a Dodge dealer, and I salivate when I go by and look at the 300's and the new Charger. I want a Charger so badly my teeth ache, but I'm still in the leases for two and three years. I'm telling the kids now, Dad's getting a Charger in 2007, and if I can only afford the one car, you better get walking.

I'm a right lane guy, I set my speed and stay with it. But I will pass to get around slower traffic. Trucks I stay clear of, back and front!

In Germany, you cannot 'hang' in the left lane, you can get pulled over by the polizei for obstructing traffic. You can also get in trouble for not signaling lane change in germany! The rules are tough and gaining a drivers lisense is even tougher....at least when I was there, insurance and fuel were sky high for the locals...that's why they have a great public transportation and rail system.

We sorely lack a great public transit system over here in many cities, forcing reliance on the car. It really is ridiculous, and because of our overdependency on foreign oil, we see the situation as we now have it. We really are spoiled when we compare the price of "gas" [sorry, I can't bring myself to use "petrol"]with the price that Europeans pay.

I agree with you about the cops, who I think in some way contribute to the problem. They seem to spend more time going after speeding, but neglect the idiots who block traffic. It seems that the gov't uses speed legislation as a revenue tool, and neglects to emphasize the free flow of traffic. I can't recall how many times I've seen some idiot who missed his exit backing up a busy highway against the flow. No cops there, they're sitting behind the next bridge, looking for speeders.

They seem to think the have the right of way built into their cars, and yup, they do believe they can do what they want.

Lane discipline in Germany is like this: you are supposed to use the right lane as much as possible unless someone in front of you is going slower than you are allowed to go. Trucks have to stay on the right lane either and are not allowed to overtake on many stretches of the Autobahn. And when they do, they clog up the whole traffic, because they are only allowed to go 80 km/h (50mph) at all times. The left lane, and the middle lane if present are for overtaking only. Sure, ofthen the rules and the reality are a different matter, but most of the time it works out pretty good. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Of course there are still parts of the Autobahn that have no speed restrictions, but you can hardly use them to the full extend at daytime. Too much traffic. That's why i enjoy driving at night. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

While we're on the topic of cars who's divers think they have a built in right of way. How about Chevrolet pickup trucks? Especially if they are painted black. I live in Southern Ontario, Canada, and maybe this is only a problem for me because I live out in the country.

I used to think their tailgating me, cutting me off and general hostile nature was just making a childishly dangerous situation of the age old Ford-Chevrolet rivalry. I used to drive a Ford and I thought maybe they were giving me a hard time because of that. Now that I drive a GM and observe it happening to other people on the road, I realize alot of them are just ******. Is there something about a black Chevrolet pick-up that attracts the most egotistical and testosterone charged drivers? Of course I can't paint everyone over with one brush but I do see a very large disproportionate number of it. I was even nearly pushed off the road one winter and narrowly avoided skidding into a forest.

This topic has gone way off track. And I would have to assume thats some sort of moldy meat they're eating.

That post was really funny, I was laughing as I read it. So true, Too Fast. I live in Milton, west of Toronto, where I get out into the countryside quite often. There does seem to be something to what you say. Another thing I notice a lot, especially since this town is realling booming with construction, is how slowly contractors seem to drive. It's as if they're paid by the hour or they just hate going to work; they drive under the speed limit and don't care how many people are lined up behind them. A lot of them are pickups, but a good number of them are in beatup panel vans. It seems the crappier the condition of the van, the worst the driver and the more likely he is to be a "non canadian."

To the point of this post, the meat. It seems to me that it is a rough cut of meat, with the backing still on, as if cut from a whole quarter like you see hanging in a butcher's window. I didn't get the impression it was rancid, just not trimmed too well.

Now the bread, on the other hand, was really disgusting, covered in all that green mould. That scene where they are trimming the bread makes me want to retch, to think of eating that stuff. People think that cutting off the visible mould is sufficient, but it isn't. The mould sends tendrils into the body of the loaf, so that even if you trim all the visible mould away, you are still likely ingesting mould, which is not a healthy thing to do.

No, it sure isn't. As a matter of fact that kind of mould is cancerogenic, but i suppose they didn't know that back in those days.

But even if they had known. I don't believe the could have cared less, being locked up in a steelcigar in the middle of the ocean and in the middle of a war.

What about that citrus fruit? God knows how many weeks it spends rotting in that crate. The air in that sub wouldn't exactly keep the fruit fresh either. For a discussion more off topic, that scene where Johann freaking dove into that orange like a raven kind of freaked me out. I've never seen someone eat an orange like that, with the peel still on and all.

He's a freaky dude, ain't he? With those sunken, hollow cheeks drawn back and those big teeth coming out, no wonder Jurgen went for the Walthers. He was pretty thirsty and dehydrated by the time he went after that orange. I once tried to bite through a banana with the skin on, to see what it was like. Disgusting, yuck! Haven't tried it with an orange yet.
