    Anyone ever read that? I've always wanted to, but I've heard it's pretty tedious and disjointed...

    Sold for $64,850. Surprising. Thought it would sell upwards of $500K.

    Beth would have paid 75% too much for it if she was bidding.

    Just like she did with Pelican Manor south.

    Hitler is proof that speed-heads can get a bit testy.

    ...little known hitler factoid. he was a car buff and he loved daimler which became daimler benz. when he was locked up in jail he not only wrote mein kampf but he submitted several design ideas to daimler none of which were accepted. he wrote a lot about missing driving thru the countryside too.

    Hitler was also an "artist"..had he been accepted into Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, history might be very different.

    Also, it's "too" not "to" in the first instance used. You shouldn't call someone stupid and have grammatical mistakes in two words of your six word sentence.

    No shit???!!!! You just blew my mind, where did you dig that fact up? ? And, if what you say is true, history would have indeed changed in ways we can't fathom. Thanks for the post. I should really brush up on my history.

    In this preface, the translator of Mein Kampf describes it as written in the style of a self-educated modern South German with a talent for oratory. In this respect Hitler was one of the rightful inheritors of the 20th century - the epitome of the half-educated man. Wandering about the streets of Vienna shortly before the first World War, his head full of vague artistic yearnings and clap-trap picked up from popular magazines, whom does he most closely resemble? Above all, Leopold Bloom, his ostensible arch-enemy, wandering around Joyce's Dublin at about the same time, his head filled with the same clap-trap and the same yearnings. Both are the children of the reference library and the self-improvement manual, of mass newspapers creating a new vocabulary of violence and sensation. Hitler was the half-educated psychopath inheriting the lavish communications systems of the 20th century. Forty years after his first abortive seizure of power he was followed by another unhappy misfit, Lee Harvey Oswald, in whose Historic Diary we see the same attempt by the half-educated to grapple with the information overflow that threatened to drown him.

    It's the best review I've ever read for this book
