In this scenario: they new there was a tapeworm in his ass so they went to the brain and convinced him to fast for 2 days and then eat the sauerkraut etc on the 3rd day so they could shit out the worm. While he was taking a shit, something went wrong and the worm tore in half before he could go down the toilet, so Ozzy and Drix controlled his hand and forced him to pull that bitch out. Excellent work, detectives.

Not really. What you are referring to is called 'rasputitsa' which occurs pre and post winter seasons. Hitler invaded in June 22 when conditions were perfect for maneuvering and attaining stable logistical supply. And Russia was not preparing to attack Germany but rather moving its forces westwards in accordance to her newly acquired Polish and Baltic territories. This is why construction of the Stalin line was seized in favor of the Molotov line. Russia was actually mobilizing against Japan in anticipation of attack from the events at Khalkin Gol and occupation of Manchuria. This is why the Soviets were so badly battered in the opening stages of the war when the bulk of their elite army was stationed in the Far East. They would make way westwards in response to Hitler's invasion and would prove crucial in the counter-attack at the Battle of Moscow.

I actually wrote a paper for the final year of my school which was put in Oxford library for other people to use as a source. The paper itself talked about how the main issue was not the battle for Moscow, but rather the fault of Hitlers arrogance regarding the battle of Stalingrad. Which, along with Leningrad, was only attacked in order to reach the oil fields in the Caucasus mountains.
The German army's blitzkrieg method grinded to a halt due to the vicious close quarters combat taking place in the city. This new type of trench/house warfare made it impossible for the Germans to keep on fighting due to the extreme difficulties met with ressuplying due to both the russians cutting the communication lines, and due to the equipment of the Germans not being suited for winter warfare (I mean really, who in his right mind would give his soldiers leather boots with -35)
the more you know.

He made a mistake, he went for Moscow too soon. He should have listened to his officers and attack Caucasus to get the oil fields, their resources were running lower and lower at the time. This is one of the grave mistakes he made in war. He thought it would be like with France, once the capital is down, the rest will surrender. Then BOOM one of the coldest winters hits. Overall I think Hitler lost 50/50 he went crazy at the end of the war and he was just really unlucky at some crucial points.

Hitler's mistake was that he was so persistent in occupying Stalingrad, deeming its fall would be a heavy moral blow to the Soviets. He left behind large detachments in the Ukraine that would not make any offensives in 1941 after the fall of Kiev. He also denied requests of withdrawal from his commanders that led to catastrophic defeats at Stalingrad (Paulus) and Kursk.
However, many people also fail to realize that Stalin was just as hindersome to the Russians as Hitler to the Germans. Before the war, Stalin's purges resulted in the death of 60% of the highest ranking staff of the Red Army and execution of 3 out of 5 Marshals in the country. He would ultimately destroy the intelligentsia and instigate massive army reforms that left the Soviets unarmed and completely disorganized when the Germans invaded. His catastrophic Finnish campaign would also prove to be a significant factor in Hitler's decision to attack the USSR.
