"This is just about WW2.

But look at what may have been had the Allies lost the war, taken Europe and spread across the Atlantic.

Of course you won't. You'll be afraid to speak out. You will cower in a corner and nervously smile at the Americans lest they grab you by the neck and show you what they think of a arrogant, little German punk.

[QUOTE who="deutscher Stolz"]Americans don't even know how to solve Hartree-Fock equations.
So? You think because you can pull some rather obscure equation out of your ass it proves you are smarter than some one else? BFD. You figure the typical German can solve it? I think not.

Intelligence isn't limited to physics and math , I mean science isn't the only place the gifted can be gifted. We don't consider Beethoven, Bach or Hemingway and Shakespeare scientists but they were geniuses.

And we went through this whole thing about whether you were referring to all Americans when you say Americans are stupid. When you say you weren't referring to all Americans, but now saying you haven't met an intelligent American, were you saying not all Americans before because, even though you have not met one, you presume there must be some smart Americans just by numbers, or were you just trying to appear to not be a bigot.

Germans are very efficient, they put an entire civilization's history of brutality into a few years.

I would bet that the majority of Germans don't know how to do that either. But the top Americans and Germans do. The idea that a variational principle can be used to get approximations is pretty standard in physics.

And I would bet that you aren't very familiar with the Tanaka-Krein duality theorem. Or how to compute the cohomology ring of, say S^2 x S^2/diag, where diag is the diagonal in the product.

That doesn't make you stupid.

And I do agree - Umlauts would make a pretty good name for a band...:)
Um, I wasn't criticizing. I found the syntax of that particular set of words funny.

I still don't understand why you would want to come to the United States to study. According to your logic - since all Americans are idiots - the professors wouldn't be able to teach you anything. So, why waste your time (especially, since you could study for free in your homeland)? I say, you're a FRAUD!
There is a reason. It is for improving my English. There is no more efficient way to learn a language than to travel to a country where the people are speaking this language.

The UK would be closer. And, don't you - in your superiority - think that they speak "better" English there? According to Professor Higgins (from My Fair Lady)- "in America they haven't spoken it for years..." :)
No. The Uk is the only country that is worse than America.
Besides the Uk every English speaking country is based on cruel crimes against the natives.
The Uk is the source of it.

I have already been in London and that was the worst city I have ever visited. Some Brits called us Nazis just because they heard us talking in German. I will never go back.
Despite I have to admit that there are nice cities outside of Germany. I visited Prague this year for two weeks and it was a really nice city with kind people. The only annoying thing were the arrogant British tourists. They didn't have any respect towards the Czech people.

That isn't logical.
You say that god comes into existence from nothing. Why isn't it possible that life comes into existence from nothing if it is possible that a god comes into existence from nothing?

Hey, we can actually agree on something - Prague is a beautiful city! I've been there quite a few times and enjoy it each time again. But in other parts of the Czech Republic, they still have bad memories of Germans and don't exactly welcome them with open arms.
I don't know good English speaking cities.

All people living during WW2 are either dead or very old.
