ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

If you actually thought about it for a second it makes sense. Why on earth would the German snipers target a guy walking towards them with bagpipes when instead they could be targeting the armed men? The fact he wasn't destroyed by machine-gun fire is just pure luck.

If you think that then you need to look it up, there were many snipers. MGs and Mortars are good for crowd control but snipers take out commanding officers so that the infantry are left without leaders.

Since neither of you seem to know, I'll fill you in.

WWII was back when the western world still generally thought of war as something honorable that had certain rules. It was generally accepted that you DON'T shoot medics. They're not a threat to you, and we hadn't yet adopted the mindset that if I don't kill them all, they'll come back to kill me/my countrymen. He's just a doctor trying to help people. Not the enemy. People.

Bagpipes were NOT used to communicate orders during world war II. It was just some quite crazy dude deciding to say **** it. The german soldiers just applied the same logic above to him. He's not a threat. I don't need to kill him.

This is, of course, very different from the war we fought in the pacific in Japan. Japanese soldiers would specifically target medics because they knew the Americans would rush to aid them (medics are valuable), giving them more targets. This was considered to be quite monstrous (by Americans) at the time.

War has changed a lot.

Speaking of badass bards, there was a skald who was shot in the chest with a bow and arrow. After going to the field medic (an old lady who happened to live right in the middle of the battlefield) and getting no treatment, he pulled out the arrow (one of those fancy ones made to tear flesh out) his heart heart came with it. His last words were something along the lines of "The king has fed us well, I'm still fat around my heart root" and he fell over dead.

Yeah, the red one only served it purpose in that one episode only.
They got a better camo the next episodes and beyond.
