• My Kind of Guy

    Hello Everybody,

    I found this on Facebook. Sounds like my kind of guy.
    Now, I'm not saying he is who you think it is, even though
    many Americans think he is also their kind of guy ...


    Facebook rant of the day -

    Hitler was incredibly lazy. According to his aide Fritz Wiedemann, even
    when he was in Berlin he wouldn’t get out of bed until after 11 a.m.,
    and wouldn’t do much before lunch other than read what the newspapers
    had to say about him, the press cuttings being dutifully delivered to
    him by Dietrich.

    He was obsessed with the media and celebrity, and often seems to have
    viewed himself through that lens. He once described himself as "the
    greatest actor in Europe," and wrote to a friend, "I believe my life is
    the greatest novel in world history." In many of his personal habits he
    came across as strange or even childish—he would have regular naps
    during the day, he would bite his fingernails at the dinner table, and
    he had a remarkably sweet tooth that led him to eat "prodigious amounts
    of cake" and "put so many lumps of sugar in his cup that there was
    hardly any room for the tea."

    He was deeply insecure about his own lack of knowledge, preferring to
    either ignore information that contradicted his preconceptions, or to
    lash out at the expertise of others. He hated being laughed at, but
    enjoyed it when other people were the butt of the joke (he would perform mocking impressions of people he disliked). But he also craved the
    approval of those he disdained, and his mood would quickly improve if a newspaper wrote something complimentary about him.


    Hitler’s personal failings didn’t stop him having an uncanny instinct
    for political rhetoric that would gain mass appeal, and it turns out
    you don’t actually need to have a particularly competent or functional government to do terrible things.
