Now, if what you're saying is true, there should be out that window a black Byzantine church with two-hundred-fifty-foot spires with gold onions on the top. ... Now, look, You see? Reality.

You didn't read closely enough. The view is from the east.

Yes, as a clarification / reformation of the basic rights and of the criminal law against incitement of the people fo 1951 / reformed and clarified 1960 after a couple of hate crimes against Jewish citizens. A law outlawing holocaust denial wasn't ratified in 1960 because the court wanted to avoid singling out the Jewish people even by privilege.
Until 1985 Holocause denial was persecuted either as incitement of the people or as libel, depending on the case. The law from 1985 was a reform more or less in union with israel who passed a similar law in 1986.

Just to chime in once more. One of the (I think more important) reasons for the law in question was the scale of the Nazi propaganda, the number of people involved in the crimes and lessons learned from the history not learned from WWI.

  • It was not some tiny minority of the German population that was on the Nazis side. Through various means of lies, deception, seduction agitations and promises of reclaiming a place in history lost during the last war, the Nazi party brought a majority of the German people on its side.
  • The Nazis focused much of their propaganda work on the younger generations. From schools to youth organizations they promised young people power over their lives and a chance to do different and better then the older generations (again, combined with falsehoods over the causes and rsults of WWI), delivering a promise to put the young, strong people into power.
  • The success of the Nazis made it literally impossible to bring every Nazi or even every war criminal to justice at the end of WWII, at least without depopulating Germany. The fact that the US already started to see the beginning of a new era of conflict between the western states and the Sowiet Union set up a certain pressure to stabilize a new Germany of 'western' making as a possible ally or at least a buffer zone.
  • Now you had teachers who were members of the Nazi party, sometimes guilty of herding their pupils into war, sometimes guilty of crimes during the war. You had young men (and sometimes women) who commited horrible crimes during the last monts of the war, incited by the passionate propaganda of Hitler and Goebbles about a 'last stand' that made use of the strange believes in blood, honor, strength and fatherland, or better the Nazis own version of these beliefs, planted during their time in Nazi youth organizations. You had people still telling tall tales about their time in the army, the heroic soldiers etc.
  • With a population still that much under the influence of Nazi propaganda, it would have been easiest (and sadly sometimes still was) to ignore the own responsibility, never speaking about Nazi crimes, never speaking about the wrongdoings of the Wehrmacht. Many teachers and Politicians did try to deny that some of the greater crimes like the holocaust happened, decrying them as part of the winner nations opressed and demonized by the victors, with a younger generation not knowing about the true extend of their parends and grandparents faults and thus ripe for the taking for another Führer whipping them into action against those opressors.

The law in question was part of the plan to keep this from happening.

No, but basic rights are parts of the German constitution

The first nine articles cover the relevant parts:
I. Basic Rights
Article 1 [Human dignity]

(1) Human dignity shall be inviolable. To respect and protect it shall be the duty of all state authority.

(2) The German people therefore acknowledge inviolable and inalienable human rights as the basis of every community, of peace and of justice in the world.

(3) The following basic rights shall bind the legislature, the executive, and the judiciary as directly applicable law.
Article 2 [Personal freedoms]

(1) Every person shall have the right to free development of his personality insofar as he does not violate the rights of others or offend against the constitutional order or the moral law.

(2) Every person shall have the right to life and physical integrity. Freedom of the person shall be inviolable. These rights may be interfered with only pursuant to a law.
Article 3 [Equality before the law]

(1) All persons shall be equal before the law.

(2) Men and women shall have equal rights. The state shall promote the actual implementation of equal rights for women and men and take steps to eliminate disadvantages that now exist.

(3) No person shall be favored or disfavored because of sex, parentage, race, language, homeland and origin, faith, or religious or political opinions. No person shall be disfavored because of disability.
Article 4 [Freedom of faith, conscience, and creed]

(1) Freedom of faith and of conscience, and freedom to profess a religious or philosophical creed, shall be inviolable.

(2) The undisturbed practice of religion shall be guaranteed.

(3) No person shall be compelled against his conscience to render military service involving the use of arms. Details shall be regulated by a federal law.
Article 5 [Freedom of expression]

(1) Every person shall have the right freely to express and disseminate his opinions in speech, writing, and pictures and to inform himself without hindrance from generally accessible sources. Freedom of the press and freedom of reporting by means of broadcasts and films shall be guaranteed. There shall be no censorship.

(2) These rights shall find their limits in the provisions of general laws, in provisions for the protection of young persons, and in the right to personal honor.

(3) Art and scholarship, research, and teaching shall be free. The freedom of teaching shall not release any person from allegiance to the constitution.
Article 6 [Marriage and the family; children born outside of marriage]

(1) Marriage and the family shall enjoy the special protection of the state.

(2) The care and upbringing of children is the natural right of parents and a duty primarily incumbent upon them. The state shall watch over them in the performance of this duty.

(3) Children may be separated from their families against the will of their parents or guardians only pursuant to a law, and only if the parents or guardians fail in their duties or the children are otherwise in danger of serious neglect.

(4) Every mother shall be entitled to the protection and care of the community.

(5) Children born outside of marriage shall be provided by legislation with the same opportunities for physical and mental development and for their position in society as are enjoyed by those born within marriage.
Article 7 [School education[

(1) The entire school system shall be under the supervision of the state.

(2) Parents and guardians shall have the right to decide whether children shall receive religious instruction.

(3) Religious instruction shall form part of the regular curriculum in state schools, with the exception of non-denominational schools. Without prejudice to the state’s right of supervision, religious instruction shall be given in accordance with the tenets of the religious community concerned. Teachers may not be obliged against their will to give religious instruction.

(4) The right to establish private schools shall be guaranteed. Private schools that serve as alternatives to state schools shall require the approval of the State and shall be subject to the laws of the Länder. Such approval shall be given when private schools are not inferior to the state schools in terms of their educational aims, their facilities, or the professional training of their teaching staff, and when segregation of pupils according to the means of their parents will not be encouraged thereby. Approval shall be withheld if the economic and legal position of the teaching staff is not adequately assured.

(5) A private elementary school shall be approved only if the educational authority finds that it serves a special pedagogical interest or if, on the application of parents or guardians, it is to be established as a denominational or interdenominational school or as a school based on a particular philosophy and no state elementary school of that type exists in the municipality.

(6) Preparatory schools shall remain abolished.
Article 8 [Freedom of assembly]

(1) All Germans shall have the right to assemble peacefully and unarmed without prior notification or permission.

(2) In the case of outdoor assemblies, this right may be restricted by or pursuant to a law.
Article 9 [Freedom of association]

(1) All Germans shall have the right to form corporations and other associations.

(2) Associations whose aims or activities contravene the criminal laws, or that are directed against the constitutional order or the concept of international understanding, shall be prohibited.

(3) The right to form associations to safeguard and improve working and economic conditions shall be guaranteed to every individual and to every occupation or profession. Agreements that restrict or seek to impair this right shall be null and void; measures directed to this end shall be unlawful. Measures taken pursuant to Article 12a, to paragraphs (2) and (3) of Article 35, to paragraph (4) of Article 87a, or to Article 91 may not be directed against industrial disputes engaged in by associations within the meaning of the first sentence of this paragraph in order to safeguard and improve working and economic conditions.

The German constitution does protect free speech, but not an unconditional freedom of speech. (note: I am not saying this is for the better or worse, I am just pointing this out for the better understanding in the context of this topic for readers that may not be aquainted with the German constitution).

So you can have an opinion the crime is in sharing it....

Specifically, it is this one opinion. The reasons for the laws in question can easily be found in German history. The law is meant to prevent people from marginalizing the crimes of Nazi Germany (especially teachers, politicians et.al.) and from publicly belitteling the fate of those who lost friends and family in the holocaust, adding mockery to the pain that has been wrecking the life of more then one generation. It also prevented teachers that were themselfs part of the so called 'Tätergeneration' (Offender-generation) to bury the responsibility of their generation, thus making the accounting of the past mandatory.

You may not agree with this, but there are reasons for this specific case of criminalizing a public opinion.

No. He can believe what he wants - publicly denying the holocaust is the crime, not believing it didn't happen.

I didn't meant to imply otherwise - but with gender roles becoming a hot topic in more or less all areas (a fact that makes me hopeful that we might be living through a change here) it is easy to get drawn into the turmoil.

Osirion

From what I have learned (major in educational science, heavy interest in psychology, sociology and es since late college, working nightshift at the only open shop in town for ten years, knowing a whole lot of parents, teachers et al.) many people are pretty rattled whith childrens sexuality, so they chose the 'safest' route, the assume children don't have a sexualtity (beats mixing it up with adults sexuality, I suppose but leads to bad stuff, too).

As soon as a kid steps out of the border of the adults area of experience (more often then not the most common form of sexuality aka cis gendered, aka heterosexual with physical gender and gender identity matching*), it becomes impossible to ignore that the child in question has a sexuality. Since that sexuality still not matches the adults area of experience, it is easier to consider not only the sexual identity in question as 'aberrant' but also but also the very existence of sexuality in the child. Mixing both together (whateversexuality is abnormal and sexuality is abnormal for a child, so both must be related)then raises the fear of sexual immorality (hey it is easy, the other kids don't have a sexuality, do they).

And yeah, it is wrong in so many ways...

*if I have hurt somebodys feelings right now, sorry, I did not mean to, please correct me if I have chosen wrong or loaded words, I am more then willing to learn

This one seems to get 'overdone family drama' instead of 'awkward teen comedy' in the mix, which is kind of preferable... I have nothing against Shia LeBeuf but his character (and even moreso his characters family) was...poorly done.

Sorry, but I have a hard time believing that a player using some infinite wishes trick to get himself rich and powerful at the time of character creation is 'simply mistaken' and honestly believing he did his character according to the usual rules.

Together with the rest of the group or at least the GM, tell him that his character wasn't build following the rules, explain to him the rules he missed or misused and then ask him if he would like to rectify his character or create a new one according to the rules.

I did just download my pdf and while I haven't been reading much (nor will I until I get a few hours of sleep, so please don't ask me for spoilers) in a passing glance this appears to be the first of the new adventures without extensive dungeons. I will take that as a sign that more diversity (not only in regions but in content) is coming :-)

I don't wish him or his family any ill. I hope his passing is swift and painless. I hope that they all find peace. I also sincerely hope that we can see more positive stories about religion instead of the hateful ones. I'm an atheist and although I believe that people would be better off without religion, I also know that most people with religion are still good people. It's the ugly ones who tend to get the attention. Hopefully the media will have one less hate group to focus on.

I (German, male, 37) learned as a child and later made an exam as a lifeguard. A little later the mild chlorine allergy I always suffered from became much worse and prevented me from practicing (as there were almost no unchlorinated pools or lakes in the area). I can and do still swim when I come around visiting the beach, but I clearly lack practice.

My mother never learned to swim, she was born shortly after the end of WW2 in the Ruhrgebiet (at that time an improtant but largely leveled industrial area). Lacking pools, teachers and probably idle time, most girls her age and location didn't learn to swim (seimming in the natuaral bodise of water in the Ruhrgebiet would have been ill advised due too chemical wastes...) and she never came around learning to swim in her adult life. She still says she regrets it but doesn't want to start anymore.

My father could swim, he learned in the Hitler Youth.

My brothers and sisters (6, all older than me) alearned to swim, three of them are examined lifeguards, one worked as a lifeguard for about a year. All of my nieces and nephews have learned to swim, two of the are doing youth competitions.

Last year, the indoor pool that was used for sprt training for six schools in my hometown was closed down, but sports is pretty important in this town (despite being pretty small with only around 36.000 people living here it is home to one of two - soon to be the only one milityra sports academy (that provides most of Germanys olympic swimmers) and the national olympic committees for pentathlon and hrseback-riding) it is pretty easy to find affordable or free ways for children to learn to swim - on the other hand: if in a city like this there is no more way for a kid to learn to swim at school, you can let your imagination run wild how it is in other rural and even urban areas.

I see absolutely no proof that the ausience is more ready to accept APMWLH than female heroes. Catwoman, as your example, did more misogynistic stereotyping than most 'male dominated' superheroe movies out there, I think, and looking at Catwoman or Elektra, I am pretty sure they didn't bomb because they had a female heroe...

(I do agree however, 'not being able to produce a WW movie' isn't something to bash DC when comparing their movie section to Marvel, it is missing the 'Wow!' mark more often then not - Batman triology aside (IMHO) and did like the last two Superman movies, I just didn't think they were half as good as most of the Marvel output.)

While I have encountered a few qtes that were well enough executed that they carried some suspense through the 'interactive' cutscene, most of the, in my opinion, don't. And most of the time I prefer a cutszene to the low base of interactivity a qte represents (push the righ button at the time we tell you or the game doesn't continue).

I still remember Dragon's Lair and Space Ace and I also remember that, even then they weren't considered good games (they looked great and you sure wanted to know how the cartoons ended) by most who played them that I knew, because of the lack of meaningful interaction. qtes are basically the same.

In other words, I find qtes annoying for most parts, because they don't offer 'high levels of interactivity', compared to most other modes of play. While they sure offer more 'interactiviy' then a cinematic, they may well force you to repeat the same not very interactive part of the game over and over again if you miss the right buttom at the right moment before moving on to (hopefully) more interactive parts of the game - cinematics usually don't do that.
