Close parallels, but I think that the North Koreans have been oppressed for longer and more harshly than East Germany was. They both existed before the partition of Germany and still exist today, while Germany was reunited in emotional scenes in the aftermath of November 9th, 1989.

Yeah, I guess they where still fed up with all those pictures of Adolf, that where about everywhere, so it wouldn't have been a smart move to tell people to put up pictures of the socialist party. But I'm pretty sure that pictures of Ulbricht and Honecker where on display in public buildings.

Even more harsh? I can't imagine how this should be possible. As far as I know, there was only one brand for each product in the GDR, and commercials wheren't allowed.I don't recall people having to show massive outpourings of public grief, when the leader of the GDR passed away, or that everyone had to display a picture of their Eternal Leader, or Beloved Leader in their homes. Still, I've lived in neither, so would only know from what i have seen from biased news reports.
I once read that people bought many many tooh brushes, when there where rumours that the only factory that produced them was about to be closed down.
I think, the brainwashing just works better in North Korea. The people of East Germany needed about 40 years to finally stand up and protest against their government, which is quite a long time. But we don't know too much about the situation in North Korea... maybe people there are happy there? Who knows.
58kg... that's just a shade over 9 stone. I am 10.5 stone (66.8kg) and struggle to press that weight above my head. These girls can do that with ease. Hell, they probably press more as a warm up.
I was watching women's weight lifting (because gymnastics where on at th eother TV station). Weight category: 58kg. Those women looked very petite, but I don't think I could lift as much weight as they did. :o
I'm looking forward to the ladies' hammer throw, as the British entrant is a former ballerina and she actually looks quite attractive... for a hammer throwing woman.
It'll even out - as we go, the teams with relatively few medals will clump together at the base of the table, while nations like the US, China, GB Germany, France, Australia and South Korea will make their moves toward the top.I don't see any events coming up where team germany really has a chance to grab the gold medal. Silver for Lilli Schwarzkopf was a huge surprise in Heptathlon. I was hoping for a gold medal in discus, but the best german lady only ranked 5th. Now let's hope for hammer throw and men's discus throw...
I'm about 90kg, the girls should have a few more problems with that weight. :P
Anyway, Team Germany now has 10 Gold medals and is 6th in the medal count. Not too bad. "Only" 2 more gold and they can pass South Korea!

Don't be lazy like me now.I did 5 reviews today (flash). Only 20 more until I hit the 1000 review mark in flash as well.
Maybe you should just start reviewing again? :P
So not anytime soon then.
I'm... not so sure myself. I'll have to see what Luis says at the end of the month. I expect to hear something by then.Well, I first have to finish my studies, then I have to find a job. Once I got my first paycheck, it should be enough for a short trip to London, though.
I don't think so. :(
Just watch as climate changes makes a nasty turn... eventually.
And we seem to have a sunny week. I dreamt last night that it was snowing in August. I'm sure it will happen eventually. :PSnow in August? Yeah, if you are in the southern hemisphere, this should be quite comon. :P
"I see. So youâEUTMre saying warming makes it colder. Well, arenâEUTMt you the queen of crazy land! EverythingâEUTMs the opposite of everything!"
We don't associate non-England countries as Britain anyway.
Scotland seems to keep itself away from our government. I don't blame them for that.Yeah, this is what makes them so cool. :P
That's a common misconception around the world, I'm afraid. People think "Great Britain=England", when in reality, England isn't even a country. :P
