Given how bad he did, it makes me think 2 things....

1. Are German officers not tested for actual brain usage? IE How did this moron get to be an officer?
2. This is such a terrible plan, it looks more like a parody of a false flag to try and draw people to think "not just muslims" and that "anyone can be a terrorist" :lol:

Its just such a god damn wierd and odd thing he did.

Well, the effect of them suceeding would be a fucking terrible public debate.
All he would need to do were a few snackbars and suddenly people would question if christian refugees are even actually christian for example.
(Or just get someone to call CNN and say there were Takbirs, you would know, you are yourself a Muslim)

Secondly a lot of hate direcred at refugees gets directed at them entirely regardless of religion anyways...

I also love how his alias was "David Benjamin" like 'how do they have to grant me protection even if my story is stupid as hell? Oh i know!'
"Bonjuor je'm apelle David Benjamin, i am of christian and my parents never loved me and gave me a comically jewish name so i would get bullied."

Goddamn idiocy.
Did you know you can replace digital with steam?

You're going to goddamned steam, the digital costs hundreds of millions of dollars more money and it’s no good.

He has the best words, of course.

I wonder if he knows that the computers onboard the Ford-class carriers are already digital, and so are the computers that control the steam catapults.

What am I saying? Of course he doesn't.

EMALS are goddamn amazing. Once the Navy's worked out the kinks, they'll operate more efficiently, have fewer failures, allow for finer tuning of mission ordinance and take up a hell of a lot less space on the ship. Here's hoping there's enough intelligent men in the upper echelons of the Navy to realize how useful these things will be and block any attempts to force them back to steam catapults.

I can't imagine the USN will humour him on this if they do they risk him interfering on other things, imagine Trump selecting new weapons :shock:. Though if he kills LCS that would be nice.
