"had all the amenities like recreational rooms and a casino then unknown in German schools."

Casino? How did I miss that one?

You missed that?

Why I remember lavish evenings sitting around the baccarat table with Ms. Hanson. Her in her evening gown and diamonds, me in my tux and gold plated cigarette case...

"Norma darling. Be a dear and catch the waiter's eye and get us a couple more martinis would you."

"Just a couple? Why not a whole thermos full?"

"Norma, you are a minx."

Good times....good times...

(Thanks Rob for the above scenario)

Chris, I have no idea...I'm assuming it's a mistranslation of something...I showed it to Rob Foore and he seems to think it might be a mistake for cafeteria...that is what it's showing, no?

Casino: A public room or building for gambling and other entertainment.
The word was first applied to a country house and then came to be used for a social gathering place, a room or building where one could dance, listen to music, and gamble. A building or room used for social amusements.

Other entertainment...the gym? the auditorium?

I was often amused...how 'bout y'all?!

/me laughs

When I originally came up with the casino scene, it had a more Sean Connery/random-femme-fatale sort of vibe. It works much better as a William-Powell-Myrna-Loy-flavored thing. Bully for Butch (as always).

I remember that part...

I'm wondering if this is going to be another thread like the brunch break one with me on the 'not remembering' side this time.

i'm totally lost. it says "cafeteria." tony cleary got the joke, but it flew right over my head. someone please explain.
also, i noticed that they've fenced everything off, with sturdy, imposing fences in the style of "stay the &^#$ out!" the american side of me rebels at this denial of our teenage freedoms, although the german side of me really likes barracading houses behind thick hedges.
ok, back to the joke...
please explain.

There's no joke. They must have updated the site. It used to say "casino" just like I quoted in my post.

How about that green color? I thought 'Rowley Blue' was bad...

I'm betting the site admin followed the "visitors' from" list to our site and read the comments and realized there may have been an issue.

You think you have problems, I still don´t get what you didn´t get and I definitely don´t get what you now get. They made the cafeteria into a casino? It says casino under the one photo. No one needs to explain it again, I shall learn to exist without the answer. :lol:

Nope, my wife keeps bugging me to plant one, and she's never been out of the country. I guess you're all a bunch of recluses. :D

i think jon is right, it must be an introverted thing. we just like our privacy. i've never known an american who wanted big thick hedges hiding their front yard from the world, but if jon's wife is requesting hedges, they clearly exist. and i've seen a few folks with hedges out east, but just don't know them personally.
