Post 1945 German Quiz

Recommended Posts

Well, don't know if this has happened before in the other quizzes. I'd think Gordon would still have the honor of the next question if he wants it as not sure how else to handle it.

But let me ask... is there even interest in continuing the quiz here? I'm happy to do so, but so far it's stalled a couple of times now, and there don't seem to be alot of members jumping in to give it a try. So I need feedback... keep it or shut it down.

I'll stay in a holding pattern till about this time tomorrow night and make a decision then based on any (or lack thereof) feedback on this. :unsure::whistle:

Hi Dan,

I'm interested, but I think, that it is very unfair to take part here as a German.


I don't feel that way... the reason for the quiz here, as in other areas, is to have fun... and to learn new things. I'm positive you'd be able to come up with some great questions that would keep us on our toes and help us to learn more about this period in German history. Plus, we also hope that more activity here will also promote more activity in the section as a whole.

The only problem is that if only a very few members participate it just doesn't keep things moving as it should and becomes kind of a closed circle which defeats the purpose. We need to get more folks involved and keep up a good pace so as to keep up interest.

I'm hoping to hear more opinions throughout the day. I'm hoping we can keep this going but I definitely need to know that there will be participation and interest. Of course if there's not enough now, perhaps we could postpone it and start i up again in a few months.

In the meantime, I'm staying in a holding pattern and awaiting more feedback.

Many thanks! :beer:

Dan :cheers:

I've decided to stay open to comments till Friday evening... so far there's only been the one from Uwe. I want to keep it going but if there's not even enough interest for more comments then perhaps it's best to shut it down... at least for now.

But will continue to stay in a holding pattern. Again, if ya'll want to keep this going please... let's hear from you.

I'm also open to any and all suggestions on things to make this section come alive. I've seen that it has now seen the cinema and library sections combined into one... in many ways that's a good idea. But would love to see alot more activity here. So what can we do to make that happen? :whistle:

Dan :cheers:

Okay, I left this open much longer than I'd originally planned but have only gotten the one comment, so I'm going to assume, at least for now, that the quiz has died on the vine.

If, down the road, folks want to get it going again please let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

Dan :cheers:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
