Unlike Pablo Escobar or the caliph Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, Hitler didn’t have a zoo in the Berghof , his home located in the the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria. However,  his dog Blondi played an important role in Nazi propaganda by portraying Hitler as an animal lover. The dog Blondi would follow him into the Bunker until the defeat of the third Reich. 
The video below explores Hitler's mental and physical decline as he is forced to confront the endgame of inevitable defeat in the bunker. After miraculously surviving an assassination attempt, his lust for vengeance triggers a reign of terror.

All despots are like that. They simply refuse to believe they've been defeated and continue to believe they're in charge no matter what the circumstances. When Saddam Hussein was captured he told his captors he was the president of Iraq and was willing to negotiate. Trump had to be removed kicking and screaming from the White House, all the while still believing he won despite no proof of any kind.

Hitler had no zoo but Görging had a lion. Eva Braun was an animal lover and had 3 scottish terriers. All these dogs including Blondi's puppies were killed in Hitler's last few days in the bunker.

Already downloaded latest Win 10. Like I said, I've skipped  Win 11 completely. I have a hard time finding drivers that work properly as advertised on Win 10.

I agree. It's way to early to upgrade to Win11. Let's sit back and let the hackers develop tweaks to make it more useful. I'll wait no less than a year, if not more.

I have an url (https://www.leboncoin.fr/ventes_immobilieres/2006605099.htm?ac=558505705) and I'd want to get a screenshot of the page since it was deleted (I don't know if this apartment was actually sold but it seems the real estate ad was not renewed). I'm trying to get the cache in google, to no avail. Actually I sold an apartment in this building for 177000€ a few months ago and this apartment looked pretty expensive in comparison. Since I know a website to check the price a few months after the sale, I could use this as a reminder (I remember that the apartment was 31m² and located on the ground floor). If you nobody knows how to do it, it doesn't matter, I will remove this message anyway.

The dark secrets of German museums - documentary
For centuries, Europeans lusted after exotic treasures from all over the world. Millions of objects were stored away by German museums during the colonial era. That’s left a cultural vacuum in former colonial countries. Today, the restitution of these objects to their cultures of origin does happen - but it is the exception, rather than the rule.

Tonight, I’m going to present another recipe.

Look at the photo below.


Here, you can see spinach raviolis (épinards aux ravioles in French). My grandmother used to make homemade spinach raviolis with grated Parmesan cheese.


Now imagine the scene:
Humbert and Topdog are in the kitchen. They are preparing some spinach raviolis. The smell of home cooking permeates the room where the guests are waiting for their meal.
Everybody goes about their occupations. I’m playing belote with Maher, Ahmad and aa1234779. Usmangujjar and shadow.97 are watching T.J Hooker (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hci3fWEx-JA). I was watching this TV series in the early 90’s (For humbert: in the 80’s and in the 90’s, all the American TV series were broadcast in French. Nowadays American series are less popular in France). Vasudev and iih are playing tennis outside.
Finally, humbert is bringing the meal. Usmangujjar is licking his chops. Practically everyone is enjoying the spinach raviolis. I already knew this recipe would please humbert since he has eclectic tastes. But I quickly notice that shadow.97 is not eating his raviolis. I’m asking humbert to come to the adjacent barn: we have to prepare something else for shadow.97. Humbert is a bit cross, but I tell him that we can’t let shadow.97 starve. We both know that he really likes blood pooding, also known as “boudin” in French. I’m leading humbert toward the piglet. I’m taking the front legs and humbert is catching the throat, but the little piglets is wiggling: we need help. Back in the living room, I’m looking for a nice and strong fellow. I’m looking surreptitiously at Maher: he’s the chosen one. He’s following me into the barn. In front of humbert and the pig, I’m now telling him that he can’t go back: shadow.97’s fate rests on his shoulders. He’s catching the back legs of the beast, I’m catching the front legs and humbert cuts the throat of the poor beast. Humbert is now preparing some fresh boudin. Thanks to our bravery, a feast awaits shadow.97.
