Nazis

  1. They’re Iz Litterall Grammer Nazis — Ackual Nazis Who Are Care for Grammer — onn Twitter

    Who new?

    If you're the type of person who corrects people on the Internet you've likely been called a "grammar nazi" at some point, but did you know that there are ACTUAL nazis online who care about spelling and grammar? Neither did we until yesterday when the BBC's Benjamin Ramm found this tweet from the American Nazi Party.

  2. Because People Are Terrible, Here is a Nazi-Themed Cafe in Indonesia

    Because, um... because people suck, I guess?

    Because people will do anything for money, one Henry Mulyana has opened a Nazi-themed cafe in the Indonesian city of Bandung. An entire wall is decorated with swastikas and Hitler memorabilia, and the staff are asked to wear SS uniforms (Yep, those pictures at the top are the inspiration and the modern cafe, waitstaff out front in the latter). Which means someone thought it was a good idea to open this place, other people actually took jobs in which they dress like Nazis on a daily basis, and enough people frequent such an establishment as to keep it open for two years and counting. And here I was getting all optimistic and idealistic about the human race.

  4. Buddhist Statue Retrieved by Nazis is Actually From Space, Says Scientists

    Prepare for the conspiracy theories, because here's today's most improbable story: Scientists have confirmed that a Buddhist statue, known as the "iron man," obtained by Nazis from Tibet is actually from space. Specifically, the thing was likely made from a massive chunk of the Chinga meteorite that deposited itself across the border of Russia and Mongolia somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago.

  5. New Trailer for Moon Nazi Movie Iron Sky, No U.S. Release Date

    It's a universal rule that Nazis are the best possible villains for movies. The film Iron Sky understands this all too well, as its plot hinges on the conceit that the Third Reich's space program was successful, allowing some evil doers to escape the Allies at the end of the Second World War and set up shop on the dark side of the moon. Now, there's an official U.S. trailer for the movie but, sadly, no release date. See the trailer, after the break.

  6. Anne Frank Started Her Famous Diary 70 Years Ago Today

    and let it be known

    Most of us learned the tragic story of young Anne Frank in school. The young Jewish girl whose family was hidden away from Nazi soldiers in a secret apartment in Amsterdam was immortalized thanks to a diary her father gave her shortly before they fled. Frank started that diary on June 12, 1942. The date also marks what would have been her 83rd birthday.

  7. That Time That J.R.R. Tolkien Told Off the Third Reich

    There And Back Again

    The Hobbit was published in 1937, the first work of fiction from Oxford professor John Ronald Reuel Tolkien whose only previous claim to fame was writing one of the (still!) most influential essays on the interpretation of the Old English epic Beowulf. It was an overnight success, and it's safe to say that the fantasy genre was never quite the same. But at the same time, in 1937, Adolf Hitler was consolidating his power as leader of the Third Reich. By May of the next year Germany had already annexed Austria, and Hitler announced his intention to use the utmost military force to subdue Czechoslovakia. This was the climate in which publishing house Rütten & Loening, while attempting to secure the rights to publish a translated The Hobbit in German, asked J.R.R. Tolkien if he could provide proof that he was of Aryan descent.

  8. LEGO Captain America Fan Film Has a Lot of Nazi Evisceration [Video]

    And let's be honest: That makes it awesome. What's amazing to me is not only how many custom weapons are used, or how many custom minifigs are completely destroyed in showers of Play-Doh blood, but how fluidly the characters move. LEGO stop motion animation sure has come a long way.

  9. That Time Hedy Lamarr Invented Wifi

    For A More Civilized Age

    Hedy Lamarr was a mathematically inclined Jewish woman who fled an abusive, Nazi-sympathizing husband, rescuring herself and her mother from who-knows-what fate in Germany to Paris and eventually Hollywood, where she became one of the biggest stars of MGM's Golden Age. She's mostly famous for the latter achievements: that of playing glamorous, seductive women in some of the most successful movies of the forties. But, as Gizmodo relates, she's made other lasting contributions to modern culture: she invented some of the basic principles of which Wifi technology is based on. And we don't even mean that in an indirect way.

  10. Germany Just Aired a 43-Year-Old Episode of Star Trek For the First Time (It Had Nazis In It)

    To Boldly Go

    First filmed in 1968, "Patterns of Force," an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, has finally been aired in Germany after the country refused to show it on television. Why, you ask, would they have refrained from airing this particular episode of Star Trek? Well, it was the one in which Kirk and Spock dressed up like Nazis and referred to the World's Most Terrible Genocidal Political Dictatorship as "the most efficient society ever created." At a mere 20 or so years after the end of World War II, Germany had decided that at the time, airing the episode might be considered in bad taste. And they're still extremely self-conscious about this Nazi thing -- the episode ran at 10:00 PM and anyone under 16 was not advised to watch it. Set phasers to "too soon"!
