At least you're halfway through.That's right. And I already know which band I will chose for the next letter, I just have to check out some songs from them first.
That's an incentive to post them more regularly.
Nile are one of the key death metal bands.
Good, I'd hate to see Ozzy Osbourne on the next post.Remember, I try to focus on "lesser known bands". Ok, it is debatable if Nile or Bloodbath are "lesser known", but at least they aren't exactly Mainstream.
Heh, well I'm not that much into death metal. ^^
But bands/people like Ozzy, Maiden or AC/DC are so well known that even people who don't listen to metal or hard rock know who they are. Can't say that for bands like Nile. ;)
Then open your damn presents on the 25th,
You're just getting Christmas over and done with.That's simply not true. 24th isn't a holiday here (but most workers will get half of the day free), while 25th and 26th are full holidays.
But why? Give me one good reason apart from "because the rest of the world does so".
Also, would be kind of hard to break with such an old tradition.
Anyway, I did open some presents on the 25th (because I recieved them on 25th) if that's more the way you like it. ;)

Ha! Funny that the refs didn't always speak the language of the players. That must've lead to more problems than this case."Wembley Goal" comes to my mind there... even though it was the linesman and the referee that didn't share a language, lol.
But was it really the case that they didn't understand each other? Seemed more like the linesman thought it was in, while the ref thought it wasn't at first.
"The England players celebrated a goal, but the referee Gottfried Dienst was uncertain if it had been a goal. He consulted his linesman, Tofik Bakhramov from the Soviet Union, after non-verbal communication, as they had no common language, the Swiss referee awarded the goal to the home team."
He is! Plus he's way too conservative if you ask me. How many game-determining wrong decisions by refs does he need before he finally agrees to put a guy behind a TV screen for a second opinion? This would spare everyone so much hassle and would make the game much more fair (gives referees less room to be one-sided for instance).
Perhaps Platini appreciated it that he kicked a Spaniard in the neck?Platini is one of the biggest assholes in football. >:(
Well, we can't have decisions based on video footage for everything, but just a simple goal camera would help a lot already. I mean, we have so many referees already: The main ref, two linsemen, in international matches the ref behind the goal and the one near the benches. One more guy watching a TV screen and deciding if a goal should be awarded wouldn't hurt.

Sorry, commentary is only available in german.
Ah I see. I believe most German players prefer to stay in Germany anyway, don't they? I don't know that many good German footballers playing outside of their country.
All playing in Germany I guess?Yes. Kroos playing at Bayern, Reus at Mönchengladbach and Götze at Dortmund.
Yes, it's quite surprising. Some years ago, in the 90's, many players of the national team played in Italy. Nowadays almost all players are playing in Germany (except for Özil and Khedira, who play at Real Madrid).
Aaaaahaha I don't think so. I looked it up actually to be sure and I pretty much found that 12 AM is a bullshit way to state the time as it's unclear. Therefore you should say 12:00 midnight or 12:00 noon or something along those lines. Or just say 00:00 and 12:00 in the 24 hours system as it's superior in my opinion...
12 am is midnight, you fool. :P
I know Hitler massively fucked up the time zones in Europe, but I'm pretty sure it's still very light outside in Germany at noon.

Anyway, I kind of assumed that you meant 12 noon as you posted somewhere in the afternoon, didn't you?
I posted it at around 0:30 GMT +1. ;)
