(Slate)   It's a normal business practice to advertise specials on national holidays. But you probably shouldn't try a tie-in with a wave of Nazi violence against Jews. Especially if you're in Germany   (slate.com) divider line 50

Almost as good as the Austrian homewares company that named their tool shed the "Mauthausen".

Come see what all the Fuhrer is about, as all these prices are Kristalnacht to be missed!

Was it a sale on Krups toaster ovens?

Hey, who doesn't love a romantic evening of beating Jews and burning their businesses and places of worship?

Oh no Jew didn't!

Hitler used a "supplement" that was more than likely meth, among other things.  At least last time I checked, I thought he used Pervitin and I recall reading that he got an injection daily from his doctor that contained some sort of amphetamine.

I thought he was a raging meth head.

The spa needs to rename it's advertising dept. to the trolling dept.

It doesn't count if it's prescribed by a doctor, silly. Why, if it did all those middle/upper class white people on Vicodin and hydrocodone would be drug addicts, and that's unpossible.

What else were they supposed to do? They already eliminated the gin and juice.

One time I told a Dr that my back hurt.

I lied. I just had a week off.

Sometimes perscriptions =/= legit.

(I'm probably joking)

The advertising agency in question were unavailable for comment as they'd all taken the week off to invade Poland.

So 'Goldfarb's Bergen-Belsen Bagels' would be considered inappropriate?

FTA : Nov. 9, 1938 Kristallnacht, or "the night of broken glass,"

Off topic, but I always assumed this happened closer to when Hitler took power.

As it happens, he'd been running the show for nearly six years by that night.

/ Hitler was a tweaker...

Maybe if your business is selling windows.
 
2013-11-05 09:09:46 PM  
Everyone remember, your 15th anniversary is the Kristallnacht anniversary.

The guy clearly had lost touch with reality toward the end so I don't have trouble believing he was being drugged, but doesn't meth produce obvious physical signs? Like skin lesions and rotting teeth?

You can do meth a few times and have the same results without lesions/mouth sores/looking older. The lesions etc. are a result of consecutive and multiple months of use.

They obviously do nazi see a problem with this.

Also, of you are on a meth (or coke or whatever) binge, you lose touch with reality regardless of how chronic of a user you are. Of it's your first time using meth for three days, your are going to think weird shiat toward the end.

Sorry. On meth.

Those are primarily caused by the meth lifestyle. Also, Gauleiters and other such people who saw Hitler near the end after not seeing him for a few years were shocked by how decrepit he looked. A lot of it was probably just stress, but meth may have played a role in his physical decline.

Speer and others remarked too that Hitler was open to different arguments and ideas early on and would change course when the situation required.

They said he grew increasingly inflexible and stubborn after years of Dr Morrels 'vitamin' injections.

I should have added that that's classic tweeker symptoms...

You shouldn't celebrate the Nazi bombing of Pearl Harbor either.

The sores are usually caused by skin picking, not meth.  Well... not directly by meth.  Coming down from the high can make a user feel like there are bugs squirming under the skin.  The rotten teeth are generally caused by poor diet (who cares about food if you never feel hungry), tooth grinding, and the fact that tweekers aren't too picky about brushing.  Meth suppresses the immune system and the body's healing abilities.

As someone who has been obese almost all my life, I have occasionally been tempted to go all old-school and take heroin, meth or coke for weight loss.  Thankfully, I'm not that stupid.

Whoever came up with that advertising tie-in was obviously distracted on the job. He or she just needed a place where they could think thoroughly and deeply ... concentrate, if you will, on what ultimately SHOULD have been said.

So, the spa is called Kristall, and they ran a promotion for Kristall-night.  Unfortunate, yes, but I'm having a hard time getting my Outrage Machine to turn over, much less start.

Not eating regularly also means there's nothing to break up the bacteria that lives in your mouth. Results in bad breath as well.
