Europe is Weird | Bro History Podcast

Europe is Weird | Bro History Podcast


I was thinking that we should just talk
about our experiences in Europe like all the guys that we met I know they’re all
wonderful that’s what you usually talk about when you talk about your tales of
Europe all the cute Italian guys you met no but you lived in Europe for a while
like a year now I spent a summer there in in college and I spent a little over
a month in Ian’s high school so combined it was like out of five or six months
Germany right in Germany so the first time was like outside of Frankfurt in a
small little uh well I literally lived in a small little village called neter
clay and shout out neter clean but is outside of boots box which is the bigger
city and that was I was just like foreign-exchange I was like one of the
American kids and in the in school there and then I went in college during
college with uh with Rutgers University and Duke they had an exchange program in
with the technisches when you post eat ate Berlin
so the Technical University in Berlin and I spent the summer semester there it
was it was dope I love Germany it’s it was my major in college but it was super
cool do you speak German at all yeah I do I mean I hope I do you do not
have in German I just never I’ve never heard there’s never been an opportunity
while both of us were together where you had to throw out some German I mean
there’s there’s hardly opportunities to speak German in general here in the
States but I do I want to take that back so speaking German is like one of the
fun facts that I’ll say you know at a company when I just start right but I
just started any job that’s founded by Germans and a lot of the people that
work there are German so it’s like not cool anymore that I speak German it’s
just normal well they’re not impressed that an
American knows German I feel like Germans wouldn’t be
impressed what would be slightly impressed that an American knows German
but the fact that I know German is just like most Europeans know more than one
language anyway so it’s just like whatever so yeah that’s why we won World
War two so Americans don’t have to learn other ways so we don’t have to learn
your language I mean you really do have to thank the
British Empire and the US Empire for not having to learn other languages yeah
yeah and then now we can do it as a hobby or like as a side project instead
of like as a necessity can you imagine in like 50 years we’re all gonna need to
learn Chinese okay I mean I don’t think that will happen but I mean it’s a
possibility everyone has to learn English like yeah so I was in I was in
Amsterdam and I was at this bar and everyone speaks English and everyone
yeah English perfectly – with a weird accent oh just perfectly
yeah well the accent in um in Holland is more American sounding than British oh
yeah sure or even German but they get these one they only get a couple of
words wrong like they’ll point out with it what announce it swinging the big
schwimmen hey like hey boys how are you you guys want to go swimming and then it
will check on certain words it will just completely come out and it’s it’s kind
of funny I asked this girl for her phone number yeah but I would say Amsterdam –
I noticed that also but you know obviously they speak Dutch they’re in
the Netherlands and Dutch and German on paper looks pretty similar but spoken is
like fucking weird to me total disclaimer for anyone who’s Dutch
or speaks Dutch like no no offense or anything like that I just think it’s one
of the funniest sounding languages overheard it’s hilarious
I don’t you go about the cigarette I took like a red-eye from Berlin to the
red-eye train that is from Berlin to Amsterdam laws they’re just for like a
weekend hang out with the boys and stuff and halfway through when we switched
over the Netherlands like they switch conductors so they also did an
announcement in Dutch and it literally woke me up
that’s how funny I thought it was I just like I got this one picture from a
McDonald’s cuz I was like Burt like poor shit when I was in Amsterdam so I was
eating McDonald’s almost every day and the trashcan thank you in Dutch is dank
you reason why they speak such great English there it’s because they watch
American television without something really yeah that’s that’s why in in
Amsterdam in the Netherlands and in Scandinavia at least in Sweden I think
in Denmark as well they consume American media without subtitles
I mean without them without language without dubbing yeah yeah so they’ll
have subtitles but I guess and that’s probably mostly for the old people who
don’t know it I’m too lazy to learn it yeah they will just you know if you
watched German television every single day and in German with American
subtitles you probably pick it up after a while and they also take English
classes like when they’re five like that’s when they start learning English
and I feel like most Europeans start that shit pretty early yeah yeah
Europeans are traveling more from country to from you know their their car
they’re traveling from border to border more so than American so it’s sure
especially with the European Union and their open border policy there yeah yeah
so it’s just there’s more opportunity to speak English because you know if you’re
a German going to France then I mean maybe I’m wrong about this you can
correct me you probably have more insight I’m assuming that they’ll most
likely speak English to each other if they if they need to communicate I mean
I imagine especially in business in business I know that this is like more
common I don’t know about like just in in
regular life but you know if you were German going to France and you know you
were working in France the common language would probably be English or
vice-versa although German and French I think like
a good amount of Germans and French people know each other’s languages but
yeah I think in wish is typically like the default language I know that don’t
they do they’re the eu-parliament or whatever isn’t that in English right
yeah that’s all in English I mean I was in Brussels everyone speaks English in
Brussels but again they have to like that’s where the EU headquarters is when
I was going to eat when I was when I went to Brussels my expectation was it
was going to be a backwater like fringe we know European town that was full of
I’ll just say like no-go zones and stuff like it wasn’t like that
we didn’t go I didn’t go into any areas and Brussels that I felt unsafe at but
it was there was a degree of shadiness in Belgium and or at least in Brussels
where I had my friend lived there for a year so I want to go visit him and when
I went there my friend wasn’t even there his friend I met him in Amsterdam like a
day-night later but my first day in Europe his fucking siren you can hear
that pretty well don’t you yeah I’ll just we’ll figure this out we’ll keep
this in the video but it’ll edit it out of the podcast but we’ll show what my
friend was there she like showed me around and she was like we walked down
this one we walked in this one neighborhood and she told me is like be
really really careful there’s some guys who are tailing us don’t go to an ATM
machine because they will they will rob you if you go to an ATM machine out in
public and I’m like what like are you serious like I you see a bunch of goofy
French people everywhere like they’re not gonna I didn’t even like Brussels has a bad
reputation of being like filled with like a lot of a lot of migrants from the
Middle East uh-huh really notice them I noticed a
couple but alright but did you notice but did you notice gypsies though really
I noticed a lot of gypsies in Prague in Prague there’s a ton of gypsies in in
Berlin like a lot of them and really I saw so many I only sold gypsies in
Prague Prague was the only place where someone try to pickpocket me hmm well I
mean I don’t mean to say like I saw gypsies is in the sense that like I was
almost robbed I’m just saying that there are a lot of Roma people all over Europe
but particularly in Berlin there was a lot of them and I would go to the to
school and there there’d be a bunch of them around and and they would hold up
these cards right and they’ll approach you and that you know obviously trying
stereotype you like if you if you look American they’ll try and speak English
to you so I speak English obviously and I spoke German so I couldn’t get away
with saying a first-edition ich do you know because they speak German too so I
try to go with the Spanish route like a note they in theme though lo siento you
know like and then she spun the card around and it’s in Spanish and I’m like
god dammit like just asking for money of course but
I thought it was pretty funny of course yeah there’s so there’s they got all
their bases covered yeah the the homeless I mean gypsies are
homeless right I don’t think they’re homeless or migratory it’s different
they don’t have like a like a set home I guess you could consider that homeless
I’m like the most literal sense of the word but I don’t know they’re
traditionally like like migratory they’re like homeless in California then
they’re not like well york homeless – they’re like california homeless living
out of the car living it living out of the car and
living out of tents because the weather is nice so they won’t freeze to death
yeah but i noticed a lot of them in prague and it got really dicey in one
situation some some lady came up to she’s like hey na you boys have a light
and my buddy was like no walk away and I like turned around and like first she
was probably about 15 feet away from me a good 15 feet away from me within a
second she was two feet away from me just like bent space and time to get
your wallet Dragonball Z when yeah who learns the ability does they yeah
Instant Transmission hell yeah that’s what that’s what she did and then I just
start feeling hands everywhere everywhere on my body like just like it
was more than two hands it was like five hands going down my pants and I was like
slapping I started slapping my my jeans like it was like a whack-a-mole and my
other friends like get away get away get away it was it was really it was really
funny she didn’t get anything thank God she went down the wrong pocket but uh
lady that’s not a pocket going into Europe I really thought that I would I
just wouldn’t I wouldn’t get pickpocketed I didn’t get peptic pocket
but it was a very close call but I thought being a New Yorker I was street
smart enough to avoid any situation like that but man they hit they strike you
very hard they got the home they had the home turf advantage Hina those gypsies
are really good maybe there was two of them maybe maybe there was three of them
maybe maybe it was just one but she was just moving so quickly it seemed like
more than one wait and Europe they have witches right
I don’t know everywhere has which is technically I thought it was just Europe
no I came over because like a storm Bush hope that I we killed myrnna most not
all witches haven’t you seen the crucible I mean no but I I’m aware of
the Salem witch trials so we did it right in the United States again out
doing a marring Europe we killed our witches right when they got off the boat
and Europe never killed their witches or they didn’t kill them off of them
so nah man which is there sir of them which witches are still thing man like
there’s this one which store in Bushwick that I go to every now and again to buy
rocks like crystals and shit and they always ask me like Oh what are you
trying to like you know heal or solve I’m like lady I just I just like rocks
this one looks I have a child’s heart they got some interesting shit in there
like you know like the the penis bone of a coyote and like the wing of a bat
there’s a difference between a witch and a Shaymin yeah yeah and a witch in a
juju man and a witch and a witch doctor a witch and a witch doctor I don’t know
which one is worse but um I guess Europe is just very very strange the
differences are yeah it’s subtle but they’re also very extreme at the same
time I agree I think it’s it’s just like how Europe is set up it’s like Europe is
pretty small you know in comparison to like other in the United States for
example like imagine if you know we’re in New York now imagine if you you know
cross the Hudson and went into New Jersey and they spoke a completely
different language well I mean I guess technically they kind of do speak a
different language in New Jersey but you get what I’m saying like a completely
different language you know it’s retarded in New Jersey hey hey hey I’m
from New Jersey they don’t speak retarded anyway like imagine if you just
cross state lines here in the United States and it’s like a completely
different language and in like a very different culture and like a different
you know a different history you know like a very very different history I
think that’s what makes the dynamic of Europe so interesting and also so
intriguing just because you know hop skip and a jump away and you’re in a
different like a completely different country you know yeah it’s weird like
that I just found Europeans kind of strange in general especially so I’ll be
honest a lot of the people who I everyone I dealt with was really nice I
didn’t deal with it you asshole well yeah there yeah I dealt with a lot
of really really loud obnoxious British people interesting louder than Americans
way louder louder they weren’t they weren’t your tip the British people that
you see here in America you know like soccer hooligans or something like that
right yeah the British people who migrated
over to New York are usually coming here for some type of job so they speak you
know oh hello my name is Nigel and I’m here if the white job at government
sucks so I came here from the school of London like they speak you know like the
the prime speak proper a proper they speak the proper English in Amsterdam
all there was they outnumbered everyone the I guess the guys from the outskirts
the good the boy the last from Liverpool and in places like that are from from
East London that’s where they have like the really mr. West Wales West West West
with oh you were fucking sheep shaggy hey you fucking walk mate are you
fucking shape they can all use your toilet or piss off you fucking cunt or
they they curse more than anyone like I’ve never met a group of guys who have
the worst tongue like this everything they said but all the British guys are
super cool like they’re all like they’re really really fun guys to hang out with
but Jesus they would be speaking in a different language sometimes they’d be
like I thought yeah you fucking faggot say you want to get any hey they get to
fuck you me my Mike just wanted to get a quick point you’re gonna be let me let
me Bond H I like just speaking so quickly every sentence is it like that’s
not cotton oh yeah they can’t ya at the cockney accent like five words there’s a
curse yeah I was like I was talking to his bouncer in Amsterdam and I was like
I just like like what’s the worst crowd like what are you what are you like wait
when they walk into in your bar like what’s the most annoying group though to
uh to work with he’s like I feels like I hate stag parties stag party
like a snack party is a British bachelor party yeah and he’s like they come in
here they’re so loud they’re so obnoxious they start singing they start
fighting they they can’t and that meanwhile as we’re talking
about this he was this kid comes in his kid just comes to give his ID or
whatever he’s like could be my lights get in here for fucking pint just like
drunk just like that like just cross-eyed and just slouching look could
me my Mike just come in here wait quick you’ll see it ain’t for any girls and
all my mates hornies fuck rock now lay just speaking like just he was he
sounded like he was retarded I’ll be completely honest in the balance I chew
at our word bro and the bouncer was like can you he’s like can you English guys
go one sentence without saying a curse word and this bouncer was a huge black
guy who was super intimidating and he was just like can you say one word one
sentence without saying a curse word it was he’s like all piss off then did I
feel like I feel like in Europe though their Styles behind America or at least
I don’t want to say British guys cuz British guys or at least a British guys
in the US who we we you know bump into it from time to time they all dress like
they’re like their David Beckham you know what I mean like they all have
talked they all did dress look in a very preppy way and they always have pea
coats and nice scarfs on like they you can almost instantly spot a British guy
in America by how they how well they dress which is a good thing mm-hmm they
can spot us really easily and all yeah I once a spot of these British guys this
is this was in New York I passed these British guys and I heard him over say
whoa so why do Yanks never talk in their shirts but the guys and the guys in Amsterdam
the guys on the stag parties they dressed like they were like seven years
in the past like they were wearing what we wore when we in like 2011 like FUBU
hats and like baggy pants especially not actually I’m actually incorrect on this
this is this is more of this was a big group of Northern Irish people okay of
the Northern Irish the Northern Irish who I met and I could even I can’t even
replicate their accident it wasn’t quite British it wasn’t quite Irish it’s that
it was actually not a very appealing accent I’ll be completely honest however
I mean it’s just one group of guys not to say that all Northern Irish people
suck I mean the majority this conversation was a giant stereotype
anyway so let’s just make that disclaimer this group Northern Irish
guys they sucked so I was in this bar in Amsterdam my friends are all being
really really loud and we’re all just you know being dickheads and this group
of girls come come to us and they’re they’re from here from Switzerland and
they were like they were like oh we were going to talk to you but we thought you
were British so we didn’t want to we didn’t want to talk to you and I was
like what it’s like why did you guys think we were British and she they were
like it’s because you guys are loud and obnoxious exact words like we thought
you guys were British because you were loud and obnoxious oh man so I was like
no we’re not British we’re not we’re not British and it’s just loud enough not
just because we’re American yeah we’re Americans Americans can be loud and
obnoxious and so the group of guys like who was reported us they were all was
big group of guys they were all from northern Northern Ireland they overheard
that and I guess they missed part of the conversation and they were hammered and
one of them comes up to me and he’s wearing like a
I think it was like a pokemons hat but it was backwards okay so yeah about to
catch a Pokemon he was wearing a bleep bat it might have been like a squirtle
on it or some shit like that or Elmo or some it was something like that no
adults would never wear and it was fitted and he had like baggy jeans and a
really big white shirt he looked like he was dressing like Allen Iverson in 2005
and he’s swimming in his clothes yeah swimming in this clothes and he was
like oh hey when he comes up to me he gives the old shake and then I’m like
okay sure and I give I go to give him a handshake
I thought as as as in tradition and he pulls his hand away and he’s like whoa
and you’re like sorry too slow to you any walks away he walks away to his
group of friends and he’s there all high-fiving each other and I’m just like
this that was bizarre like all like my friends are all like what the fuck was
that the fuck was that did he just say and and it was very
bizarre so I went up to the guy and I was like I’m like what what was that
like what did I do to you why did you pull the psych on me that’s
what he did he pulled his psych on me to slothy I didn’t do I didn’t do anything
to you like I thought you were trying to shake my hand and you’re just being an
asshole like what’s the deal with that it wasn’t being like abrasive her
aggressive I was asking him why Tereus right and he’s like oh I thought you
bill always will British we fucking hate British and I was like what sound
British and I know he was up north I can’t do the northern I mean okay I
can’t do that accent so they’re all just British accents so he and I’m like now
or were Americans like we’re all from New York and they’re like oh what
whistle we win it main thing offend you we just hate the British when we call me
and I was like Jesus Christ you guys are fucking losers so yeah that was my only
experience Northern Irish people they dressed like
thirteen-year-old posers and they sucked but all the other British the British
guys are super super fun whoo-hoo we hung out with in Amsterdam they were all
just really loud like they just with happy guys you’re like oh come on Mike
get over here take a fucking shot you fucking twat you know what I mean well
hey just cursing and fun for a night maybe not for a life your life half the
time you couldn’t understand what they were saying but they’re all fun guys
like oh you can’t hate like the word cunt was used so aggressively no it’s
actually it’s a term of endearment honestly like I have a friend who’s
Australian and he says cunt like way too much like way too much but it’s like
normal for them yes nor it’s normal oh come on you can’t he got fucking caught
you say it in a very they say it hard though it’s a hard it’s a hard T very
very very hard T but yeah I mean they’re they’re cool
Amsterdam people are cool as well they’re all really really really nice
yeah yeah I noticed that they’re all just like super nice normal and cool
like I would if is you were gonna teleport me to a place to live I feel
like I’d want to live in Amsterdam if I had to go to a place and like Amsterdam
was like super beautiful during the day and then at night it gets kinda creepy
not like scary but like creepy because like all their buildings are lumpy and
like they you know lump into each other and their alleyways are super cramped
together and that’s just like a normal straight for them and of course there’s
the red-light district just one time I was offered heroin just like
nonchalantly on the street by this one random dude and he was just like would
you like to buy his heroin and I’m like no he’s like okay and I’m like would you
like some heroin I’ve got some heroin just give me a sure phone number but
yeah it’s I’m not even talking about the red-light district like if you were
gonna throw me yeah no no of course suburbian area
yeah my brother Brad Harlow I wouldn’t want to go to I wouldn’t want to live in
London i-i’ve never been related to me I’ve only ever been to the airport in
London I’ve never been to London but I’ve I don’t know I feel I mean it
probably would be the big the easiest culture fit because people from England
now are all like fat Americans anyway now they’re like I think they’re pretty
close to the like the fattest country in the world or they’re there if they have
not asked you not the US then you know we heard that now where the titleholders
for that we’re winning we always win on that one dude the
British are are right behind us when it comes to obesity I’m sure but we’re
always gonna win if they have don’t take this away from us the British are very
close to Americans in obesity if they haven’t passed I don’t I don’t think
they have passed us but they’re closed they’re a fat country phad fat yeah
they’re they’re a fat country I just couldn’t deal with with the them
driving on the wrong side of the road nah dude that’s cool generates did that
should our bait us in Barbados when I went to Barbados I drove on the wrong
side it was pretty interesting that’s why we dig that’s why we had the
American Revolution because we didn’t want to we wanted to stop driving on the
wrong side that was that was in the original Declaration of Independence life liberty and driving on the right
side of the road so yeah Britain I’m yeah whatever
Britain fuck you guys remember it now I’m joking what was the other thing I
just wanted to talk about this one one bit you know cuz we’re talking about how
a Europe is weird and we talked a lot about languages and stuff and on the way
you know home from work today I just like popped on a couple of videos and I
forget the guys name maybe I’ll I’ll try and link it in in the and the YouTube
video here but he was talking about Italian stereotypes and obviously the
most pervasive Italian stereotype is this you know the hand gesture right
Baby Bop what a boom and he had a really funny video and is like really well
produced and stuff like that but he acts I spoke to some you know like experts
from Italy like in Italy so I tried to figure out what the hell does this mean
you know and evidently there are a ton of other hands and gestures that
Italians use that that have codified meanings like the one that stuck out to
me that was hilarious was you know obviously this is it what it kind of
means is like what are you doing like what is he doing what is she doing what
what’s up with that right that’s what they use one hand it’s never – it’s just
one the other one that they do that stuck out to me and I’ve never seen this
before is how many if you see this what do you think this means so I’m doing
what looks like the the ruble symbol it’s not vagina but you’re not far off
either it’s like a bird a girl it’s it means if you do this to someone it means
your wife is cheating on you it must happen a lot I was dying and the one the
the guy who did the video who is just like so like what happens at a rock
concert if everyone’s doing this to you just like that so the does the singer go
like what she’s she’s what she’s cheating on me but evidently it’s like
when the Greek here’s some history for a bro history podcast when the Greek I’ll
just say something fucked up fucked up I’m gonna say what does hail guru Cobain
died oh shit no too soon hit me with that Courtney loom that hit me with that
Courtney Love anyway back to the history portion of it when the Greeks came over
like long long time ago and conquered Italy and and settled there obviously
they spoke Greek but they also just Jess chelated which is I think I’m using the
word correctly which is like to use your hands to speak and that was pervasive
the language didn’t stick because it became Italian or Latin and then Italian
but the the symbols the hand symbols stuck around so that’s actually where
where they get a lot of that from so you can blame the Greeks for the for the
this you know the hand symbol sorry monkeys like their chests
like no I think it’s more like so sounds yeah there’s a lot of Italian
stereotypes my favorite Italian stereotype is the my girlfriend’s
Italian so I gotta tread lightly the the hair on the hair um the hair on the lip
or the 35 year old man who lives with his mom
40 yeah it’s like it’s like a thing in Italy or on the East Coast as well
Italian guys love their mama its economic its economical to live with
your mama it is and you get all the best food you know I can’t hey my mom isn’t
Hey so open having a problem mama has been fine or right raviolis nowadays and
now I’m thinking about moving out there’s one thing I’m gonna miss it too
much I ain’t gonna find a broad who can cook me some pasta just like the old
country used to do the the Italians are very funny all right I want to go to
Germans now I was a Germans Germans because they are my favorites
they are my favorite to talk about yes my my girlfriend’s coming soon and she’s
gonna yank me out of here but she so the Germans are by far the hardest Europeans
to read yes yes they are very hard to read you never help they like you or not
yes and they’re super direct as like a as a culture so they’ll say something to
you and it sounds fucking mean but they’re just talking to you
they’ll be very direct about it we’re like your hair is messy and you’re like
what okay and they’re just bluntly very matter-of-fact tell you something and
it’s crazy it’s and it’s hard because you don’t know if they if they dislike
you and they’re being assholes or you know that’s just how they are
they’re very direct there they are very direct and it has to
be annoying something I noticed in Berlin was that and I was in all the
tourist parts so you know it’s not probably everyday Berlin
however like there was like a million walking tours going on a day yep and
biking tourists walking tours and biking tars about Nazis mmm yeah yeah that’s a
thing out every single day the people who at least commute and work around
these areas yeah you have some loudmouth guy usually they’re British all the guy
all the guys did who did the walking tours and in Berlin were all British
guys and they would all just be like this is what Hitler this is exactly this
apartment complex is what Hitler ended his life with a bullet and cyanide
how did not take over this country like just yelling just all day just reminded
reminded of World War 2 or reminded of how the city that you live in right now
was torn apart yeah by bombing raids and red invasion like every single day you
have like these tours that just talk about probably the worst thing that ever
happened in humanity like it’s gotta be depressing yeah yeah and that’s also
German culture though I mean because German cult-like Prussian culture like a
lot of that comes from Prussian culture where which was very militaristic and I
mean they crushed school like a modern day school system came out of Prussian
culture I mean the word will hinder the word kindergarten or yeah like all those
school terms that we use right now they all coming out of Germany Prussia
specifically you know how school was a like they started school because it’s
called school sure sure sure yeah sure sure so they during like the
franco-prussian it might have been before it I think it was a prank Oh
fresh and more when I started conscripted armies because after the
Napoleonic you know the Napoleonic war is coming
strict conscription became a real thing like that was never a thing before that
example would everyone who fought in the military was usually hadn’t had money it
was like an honorable thing to do and you know you went there for a career and
it was it was it was a fun day to go fight more but Napoleon changed the game
he started just conscripted people and you know other European countries
started adopting that afterwards because like I mean how are you gonna take even
if you have a professional army of 50,000 men
you’re not going that you’re gonna lose to an army that has 800,000 men so also
the technology just kept getting better and better and better so like you just
needed more people because you’re gonna lose more people more like much quicker
yeah just need more people for the logistics to handle all the things like
trains and supply line supply lines and medics and all that stuff and artillery
and mechanics for machines and stuff like that but we lose but um
the Germans we’re coming back to German so like the normal everyday peasant who
would be conscripted into the army they would often run away and battle they’d
run day it would just be they’d be like holy shit I’m a farm guy what the fuck
bullets bombs artillery I’m getting the fuck out of here and that was like a big
problem in the 1800s so they realized that it was because of the culture so
they and they started to train young or at least indoctrinate people who loved
the homeland at a very young age so that they would be willing to fight and die
for the homeland when they got older so that’s how those are the origins of
school shoes oh shoot Shola sure sure one last thing I have to say about
Germans is that they many Germans don’t have a the same concept of personal
space that we do so when you speak to one one-on-one they’ll often to the
other digging out in front of you basically I mean they they come up real
close I noticed that like a lot it feels like
they want to kiss you or some like ice like yo bro back off with some
space you take a step back and they’ll just step forward it’s awkward German
history take a step back and they step forward yeah yeah oh man
imagine if Germany wasn’t clipped from the wings okay that’s a loaded question
after World War two you it is a lot of quit is a loaded question
yeah after world war ii i don’t know i don’t like to imagine that it’s like a
tough it’s a weird thing to imagine there’s a whole lot of reprogramming
that needed to happen after that frankly yeah damage upon both yeah it was it’s
weird it’s a weird thing it’s hard to really contemplate and go in without
like really thinking about it hard but what if Germany wasn’t a Nile like I
mean Germany was destroyed twice yeah Italy at least twice in like a forty
year period yeah but so something to happen so speaking of world war one
world war two something I found very odd and this is really the last weird
European story cool so this kid this this german kid started apologizing we
were like we were hanging out at the bar he was a nice kid
he was like a couple years younger than me he was like 22 I’m very sorry for
vote for – exactly what he was doing oh man started apologizing for World War
one and World War two here my girlfriend’s coming right now
hopefully Dan lets her in shit all right I’m gonna I’m gonna wrap this up a
little quick so there was this German kid who kept on apologizing for World
War one in World War two and it was really awkward yeah it was very very
awkward we were like having fun and we were like just we were drinking and like
we were like talking we were talking about politics losing all about politics
and Merkel and my European Union and he finally like at the end at some point of
the night he’s like I was so sorry for World War wanded World War two you know
we you know we we associate of it you know
this and I just know we thought we’re so sorry for all the pain and damage that
we caused and I was like dude you’re 22 years old
your period your parents weren’t born yeah one second but your parents weren’t
born and it was just very very awkward well so it’s pretty pretty strongly
contrasted against like this phenomenon that goes on where you know a lot of you
know at this point a lot of World War two veterans are dying and things like
that but the the the phrases OPA var kind Nazi and it means grandpa wasn’t a
Nazi right and it’s like everyone’s denying that they’re you know direct
relative was involved in anything nefarious but when they die you know you
go through all their shit to start you know um that the mourning process and
then you realize oh shit yeah grandpa was a Nazi but this guy he’s like
blindly maybe his grandpa was a Nazi and he just had you know his grandpa just
died and he realized his grandpa was a terrible person so he’s he so he decided
to apologize on his behalf but I challenge you the next time you’re in
Europe how about you uh you just go to a pub and like find yourself like a nice
European and be like I’m so sorry about you know Iraq 1 & 2 just be like hey I’m
so sorry for about indiscriminately bombing your cities and killing so many
civilians yeah alright let’s wrap this up alright peace everyone oh yeah guys
