      1. The history channel had a very interesting program on the Nazi use of crystal meth. Apparently the soldiers used it in pill form to overcome hunger and fatigue. And Hitler himself got regular injections by his doctor. That was apparently the key factor in him losing it. The meth-induced mood swings just became too much and he lost his mind.

  1. I think most people have some sort of talent that is more or less unseen by others. Perhaps someone told him that he wasn’t very good, or he himself thought that.

    It’s a shame in this case. Thanks for bringing his talent to light. I wish he would have stuck with it.

    1. Brent: Thanks for the link. Interesting. Aside from wondering how his life would have turned out if he’d been accepted, let’s wonder how millions of lives would have been different.

  2. Yeah. Not sure whether someone else would have taken his place a similar outcome or not. My history is a little sketchy especially pre WW2. After all, isn’t it the winners who write the history books ?

    1. Brent: Hitler was a piece of work all right. How Germany would have turned out post-WWI without him is impossible to know. The nation was left in financial ruin due to the harsh peace treaty they had to sign. In a way, the victors created Hitler.

  3. Thanks for that. That’s what I suspected. If you corner a rat and starve him out he becomes dangerous. It makes one wonder about North Korea and whether punishing sanctions are the way to go.

    1. Brent: Starving a rat is an excellent analogy for what the allies did to Germany. As for North Korea, something must be done. Rocket Man is quite young, quite dangerous, and totally out of touch with reality.
