It still amuses me when America claim they contributed the most to D-Day
User avatar #7 to #4 - flammablefetus (07/16/2013) [-]
Obviously Germany contributed most to D-Day.

They lent trenches of bullets and explosives to Allied soldiers.

well yes

Paris was declared an open city you see, the Germans could take it without any resistance so it wouldn't be destroyed

any spot where a German died in WW2 had more casualties then the "invasion of paris"

the Germans took so many casualties because that building was being defended by an immortal ever reviving mega soldier, aka Corporal Alexei Ivanovich Voronin.

Humans didn't "appear" 200,000 years ago. That doesn't make sense. Anatomically modern humans are thought to have appeared then but the approximate number is still just guess work

I would like to start this rant with saying that any one who participated in the D-Day invasion put themselves in huge danger. and Hitler did nothing wrong
But This fact is misleading.
While the British 2nd army had about 83,115 only 61,715 where British.
The Allied Casualties numbered around 10, 000, with a breakdown of 2,700 British, 946 Canadians, and 6,603 Americans. With Canadians suffered the highest casualty rate of any of the waves with 50 % on Juno Beach.
The American Forces where assigned the toughest held beaches, mainly because of lack of Intel as opposed to logic or reasoning.

The battle of Stalingrad one isn't particularly impressive. No one died in the "battle for Paris" as Paris was surrendered by the French.

The French government surrendered after Hitler asked them to, saying that he would hate to bomb the **** out of a city as beautiful as Paris.

invasion of Paris?
never heard inviting someone into your capital called that before
#27 - trickytrickster (07/17/2013) [+] (9 replies)
Only 61,000 were British on D-Day. The American forces hit the much more occupied beaches, which I guess is why maybe they get more recognition. It doesn't matter though because any Allied Force that participated in D-Day is a certified badass, regardless of country of origin.

Also with the South Africa one, that is totally untrue.

It always bothers me when I hear a story like the Elizabeth one. If it really was a poisonous, terrible food then maybe it wouldn't have prospered in the new world. Oh, and banning something like a potato is ridiculous from any historical standpoint because, if it was really so terrible, wouldn't it be more likely that nobody would want to grow them?
#28 to #20 - scarytown (07/17/2013) [-]
Potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants, tobacco, bell peppers, chili peppers, and several kinds of flowers (such as belladonna and petunia) are part of the Nightshade family, which is can be poisonous. Usually not enough to kill you, but enough to make you pretty sick. The only parts of these plants that are edible are the tuber of the potato plant and the fruits of the tomato, eggplants and peppers. The peppers and tomato are the least poisonous and can be consumed before they are ripe. A potato however, can be poisonous. If the tuber is uncovered during the growth stage and receives sunshine, it will start the photosynthesis process and turn green due to chlorophyll. This makes it poisonous and you will most likely get sick from eating it (it's ok if just a bit of it is green, but if a lot of it is, then it's best to throw it out) So yeah, it is poisonous. People knew nightshade was poisonous and was usually considered a "witch plant" because some people would grow the ornamental varieties in a time when most people only had gardens for food. So when a plant that was part of the nightshade family showed up as a food, they were very wary. Most people wouldn't eat potatoes. The royal family in France (Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI) actually had to endorse the potato because people were so against it. (They grew the plant in their garden as ornamental and Marie wore the flowers in her hair. They also had their cooks come up with every way they could find to cook it.)

Lebenstroum is a foreign policy that means Germans should have more land like Austria, Sudetenland, and etc.

"97% of history is lost."

I must find it.
User avatar #157 - randomserb (07/17/2013) [-]
A hardly standardized language (back then) with such inconsistent orthographical rules is bound to be spelled differently per person.
As for the "lost history" thing, it's called prehistory for a reason. We define it as history from the moment a writing system is adopted onward.
