If blogging was around at that time, do you think history would be different? Adolf could have published a sketch book and sold T-shirts instead.

Did you know, Uli, that Hitler was rejected by the Vienna Academy the Year Grim Natwick was accepted, and the watercolours that Hitler presented were published in "Colliers" in the early thirties and Disney showed them to Tengreen and Hurter as inspirational for Pinocchio?
Well...Now you know.

Did you know, comrades, that Hitler was once employed at the Imperial Hotel in Liverpool as a bell-boy. He enjoyed the work but didn't get along with his brother, Alois' missus. (He was lodging with them.) She kicked him out and history took its course.
Also, did you know that Saddam Hussein once considered migrating to Britain. He had plans to open a shop in Leeds with his cousin. The cousin is still running a grocery there.

Once I read a novel by Benito Mussolini called "The Cardinal's Daughter" and Marx had left a love poem, I have it but it's in German, language I don't speak.

Idi Amin played the Accordion. His favourite tune was 'Step we gaily." (A popular scots air.)

Nero played the lyre while Rome burned and Adolf Hitler used to accompany Wagner's operas with the Jew's Harp (Or so they say)

Dicen que Picasso dijo ( o lo dijo un grafólogo a propósito de la firma del malague?o ) que de no haber seguido el camino del arte posiblemente hubiera sido un asesino.
Por regla de tres cabe imaginar que tal vez al mundo en general, y a los judíos en particular, les habría convenido que Adolfo hubiera sido aceptado en la academia de arte de Viena y que nunca hubiera soltado los pinceles y las acuarelas.

no sé en que cosa es peor...todos tienen derecho a pintar estupideces,me incluyo, lo que no tienes derecho es a creer que eres un genial artista, con la cara y la mirada de tarado que tiene. yo sé cuando dibujo cagadas. pero los hombres como él, deben ser que los ponen los creadores del universo, para compensar tanta buena gente que hay, que es de lejos, la mayoría.
I don't know in that sews it is worse... all are entitled to paint estupideces,me I include, what you are not entitled is to believe that you are a brilliant artist, with the face and the look of retarded that has. I know when I draw shitted. but the men as him, they should be that they put them the creators of the universe, to compensate so much good people that there is that is from a distance, most.

pero mi traductor es divertido, ríete de los dadaistas, y lo puedes apreciar como un jeroglífico, para desentra?arlo.

but my translator is amusing, laugh at the Dadaists, and you can appreciate it as a hieroglyphic, to figure out it.

I saw some Hitler's watercolor reproductions many years ago. The streets and buildings were fairly good but the bystanders were completly out of proportion.
Does it means he was handicapped to catch the human subject, perhaps?
Anyway, I curse the admision comitee of the Vienna Academy for rejecting him back then.
