I was just watching Insomniac with Dave Attell, the one where he goes to Germany (compliments of Amritas, who is a dear and makes me tapes of Comedy Central). I had another thought about English as the world's language: Insomniac could only be an American show. In no other language could you travel around the world and hope to find people who understand you to participate in your antics. Attell just walks into clubs and starts yammering in English, and he makes a whole show of it. That couldn't happen if he spoke Portuguese or Finnish.

love your blog, used to live in heidelberg as a kid. really miss germany. you'll probably miss it too one day. don't sweat the dinasours, they'll be dying off soon. there are actual conservatives in germany, you just have to look for them. its amazing how much the german culture reminds americans of what we would usually call dumb polacks or slavic marxists. I thought that germans were supposed to be all western and forward looking but NO!! they are like factory rats in Flint or muskegon or something. Screw em. live your life and read a book called "rich dad/poor dad"

I met Dave Atell when he was doing several nights at the local comedy club. He's nearly as interesting in person when not filming for the show as he is on the show, had a great time and a few drinks. Short tho....
