That's a great song. He should've stuck with music instead of joining Captain Picard on Star Trek.

What? No Klaus Nomi?

 

That is an impressive WMD although it's simply an improvement on the New Jersey prototype designed by Frankie Valli at the Four Seasons arsenal...

No Peter Schilling? (Also I'm so tempted to link some NDH or some of the many weird permutations on modern music fused with medieval folk music from Germany you guys have no idea).

The argument is about functionality vs lethality. Germans have the lethality edge. Allies have the functionality edge.

My choices for top 5 German tanks:

 

1941-mid 42  Pz III

mid 42-mid 43 = Tiger I

late 43- mid 44= Panther for medium tank, Nashorn for lethality at long range

mid 44- late 44 = JadgPanther. for lethality, Stug  for functionality

Dec 44-mid 45= Tiger II

The gauntlet has been thrown!

well then, you just need to be exposed to the full fury of German weirdness that is this

and since we are on the topic of unusual German pop singers, I would just like to present this clip from the 1970's of German pop sensation Nina Hagen.  In this particular clip she appears with that ever so classy and diplomatic American comedian Don Rickles.  Hilarity ensues.

What do you mean by functionality? Mechanical reliability? Ease/speed/cost of production? The actual workings of the tank (i.e. Engine performance or sight type/quality)? In any case, it seems like lethality is dependent on functionality; a tank that doesn't function well can't kill as well as one that does.

Oh no you dont!  I tried really hard to derail this threat from the boring old topic of "Is the Sherman Awesome or terrible" with presentations of German pop singers.  Please, don't force me to post links to videos of Heino.

Germany has a lot to answer for.

I ain't done nothing! He started it!

 

Heino looks like he (she? I can't even tell) has seen and done some terrible, terrible things.

Actually, he kinda has. 

 

An ageing crooner some see as Germany's answer to Tom Jones but others accuse of stoking far-right sympathies, has staged the biggest comeback in the history of the country's pop music.

Klaus Nomi is possibly some sort of robot sent from the future to exterminate all humans, but became distracted at some point on the way:

 

 

I take it this video is from early in his (?) career, since he's still in the original packaging.

I saw a video with a woman whose hair was trying to eat her as she choked to death on Bizet.  Also, she had tropical fish in her pockets for some reason.

 

I have had enough internet, goodnight.
