Vast Nazi Facility Uncovered In Austria; Purported A-Bomb Development Site

mailuefterl Tunnels everywhere, A-bombs nowhere (292 comments)

Some of these claims seem to be overblown.
If you take a look at the Manhattan Project, you get an idea what efforts in research and production (i.e. uranium enrichment) were required.
The Nazis never had a programm that came anywhere near these dimensions.
All they had was a handfull of phsysicists (most of the best had emmigrated to the US anyway) and a small research reactor.
So while there was some nuclear research, there never was a atomic bomb or anything close to it in Germany.

And the tunnels? The whole 3rd Reich and it's occupied territories were tunneled mostly for the purpose of weapons production.

At 94 km/h you are considered a traffic obstacle on an austrian Autobahn.

Austrian Blank Media Tax May Expand To Include Cloud Storage

mailuefterl 15€ Tax to anonymous artists to store my own (129 comments)

The ridiculous aspect of this tax is, that when I fill my hard disc with pictures I took myself with my own camera I would still hav to pay for example ca 15 € for a 1TB hard disc which can be bought for as little as 63€ (external USB 3.0)

Noodle mesh is a religious head gear in Austria

mailuefterl mailuefterl writes  |  more than 3 years ago

mailuefterl (140499) writes "A Noodle mesh is a religious head gear according to Vienna traffic Authorities:
http://wien.orf.at/stories/526269/ (article in German)
When Vienna advertising agency owner Niko Alm applied for a new driver's licence, he submitted a photo which showed him wearing a noodle mesh as head gear.
According to regulations, only the face must be visible on the photo, no hats, no caps allowed.
The only exception: religious head gear.
So he declared himself a pastafari and claimed his noodle mesh was therefore a religious head gear.
First authorities denied the driver's license, but after 3 Alm was now issued the document with the rather special ohoto."
