The V8 Club becomes CBGB before there was a CBGB in establishing the Punk Rock scene.
CBGB, The Roxy and the Marquee Club of St Pauli all in one. Until those other clubs come along that is.The V8 Club becomes CBGB before there was a CBGB in establishing the Punk Rock scene.
If Ritchie gets his Bachelor's then maybe a move to the United States Secret Service, becoming a Treasury Department Agent, or various other Federal Law Enforcement Agencies.In the wake of Manny and Suse having to practically sneak out of the country. Ritchie had expected some sort of blowback. All that had happened was that his Superiors wanted to know if he was preparing for the Police Officer 3 exam that was coming up soon. He had not realized that he had already been on the job that long. Word was that the LAPD Brass were almost gleeful that the Feds were currently tied up in knots, with the US Justice Department stepping in and Congress was going to be holding hearings. Who knew what was going to be happening next?
Britain went through a similar process, post WWII it had been subsidised as a "strategic asset", then later it became a "holy grail", a bit like our car industry. Then came Thatcher and the fighting here was rather more brutal and a lot shorter, same with the steel industry. I was concerned for a moment before posting this that it could be construed as "Current Politics" as it's in living memory for me, then suddenly felt very, VERY old because it was 40 years ago...Actually the coal mining in Germany was subsidied already in the early 60s and it took a lot of fighting to finally let it die more than 5 decades later. Subsidies for farmers became higher than the actual value they produced mid 70s (which is now a fact in every industrialized country including the USA), steel started its decline mid 70s.
I've spend time over the last day thinking about what would need bulk transport around the Bodensee. And I have to admit I don't really know that much about the German side, less so about how that one was like up to the 70s. I know a bit more about the Swiss and Austrian sides.PM is of course right there are items best transported by ship. There is a reason why power stations and steel mills are normally situated at rivers or channels and that is bulk transport (another one being cooling).
On the other hand the Danube and it’s tributaries are very shallow (less than a meter without human intervention) and cannot be used for transport. There is not even a big town on the Danube in Germany. So not many industries with a need for large bulk transport have developed there and the transport system has been rail all along. The RMD connects the Ruhr with literally nothing.
Same would be true for a channel to lake Konstanz. No industry there which needs shipping.
Passau, Regensburg, Ingolstadt, Günzburg, Ulm would like to have aword with your geography teacher.On the other hand the Danube and it’s tributaries are very shallow (less than a meter without human intervention) and cannot be used for transport.

I have been reliably informed that having sex while wearing the bearskin is possible but not recommended.The bearskins look bloody heavy too. The Steel helmets with the plombs(?) aren't too bad by comparison. I found a secondhand bearskin for sale on a militaria stall years ago. I would not want to be wearing that for any length of time.
