An American fired his rifle about 12 inches from my arm, I had blood dripping down my sleeve.

Re: Possible new subject matter

Re: Deutsche Reichsbahn impression

How do poeple react in general to the "forbidden symbols" there?
I have discussed this so often over the last ten years, there are several old threads
