do not torment the sleep deprived artist, he may be vicious when cornered,
in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,
and less likely to stab you in the eye with a mechanical pencil

err... He's making the generalization that all Germans excel in engineering and design, as demonstrated by Mercedes-benz, Bayer, and numerous other German corporations.

...most of Sydney? Noooooo way, a cheap broadband plan is like $60 a month, plus a $200-400 installation fee (for all those wondering how much that's worth, it takes ~$2 to make US$1). I'm on a 56k too, though my phone line is pretty much free as is the unlimited hours, and a good line (I get 6k/sec all the time).

In terms of broadband, out of about 120 people in my grade, there are about 5 with cable. No ADSL/DSL people around, it's just way too expensive.

Overall - quite crappy.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill
