(another day, another bump)
Would that concentration camp be a satellite camp of Buchenwald?

(with all the airplane buffs, I figured Junkers would be a dead give away.)


Yes.

I wonder if I should just shut this down for the summer as nobody is playing right now.

Seems so, no one is saying otherwise in the game discussion thread.

Ob: Is the first letter of the answer A?

Coming up with a picture isn't that hard. Finding one that is a bit diffucult, that may be an issue. If you say want to do locations, then, in google images typing in say the name of a country and landscape should return a passel of possibles. But that is rather easy to guess. If you instead used the name of a city that should keep them off the scent for a bit.

But the issue is we need people willing to post pics to keep the game going. If we don't have that then ...

Perhaps an exotic place pretty photos thread might be better ...

Mouse Tower, Bingen am Rhein ...

The legend (from Wikepedia ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_Tower)

The story of how it came to be called the "Mouse Tower" comes from a folk tale. This popular legend goes as follows: Hatto II was a cruel ruler who oppressed and exploited the peasants in his domain. He used the tower as a platform for crossbowmen and demanded tribute from passing ships, shooting their crews if they did not comply. During a famine in 974 the poor people were without food, and Hatto, having all the grain stored up in his barns, used his monopoly to sell it at such a high price that most could not afford any.

The peasants were getting angry and organizing to rebel, so Hatto devised a cruel trick. He promised to feed the hungry people and told them to go to an empty barn and wait for him to come with food. The peasants were overjoyed and praised Hatto heartily, and all of them traveled to the barn to await his coming. When he arrived with his servants, he ordered the barn's doors shut and locked, then set the barn on fire and burned the peasants to death, derisively commenting on their death cries with the words "Hear the mice squeak!" (This quote exists in several slight variations.)

When Hatto retired to his castle, he was instantly besieged by an army of mice. He fled the swarm and took a boat across the river to his tower, hoping that the mice could not swim. The mice followed him and rushed into the river by the thousands. Many of them drowned, but even more crawled onto the island. There, they ate through the tower's doors and crawled up to the top floor, where they found Hatto and ate him alive.
