    Trust gets you killed, love gets you hurt, and being REAL gets you hated.

    These are the conservatives? OK, now I kinda get what is wrong with EU.

    BTW, all the costumes and dolls/muppets/whatever they are called seem produced on the same assembly line. Talk to me about communism.

    Where is the diversity?

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    There's a single artist (Tilly) who generally runs 12 floats at each Düsseldorf carnival. Hence why those always look somewhat the same.

    Like most carnival processions, Düsseldorf has around 70-75 wagons attending every year. It's just that everyone waits for Tilly's one-sixth of those.

    Float or no float, the protest was never going to change a thing. I did enjoy some of the signs though

    Politics like to treat people like sheep. Things always start to get awkward when people start to think for themselves ..Those floats are artistically brilliant and fit a certain train of thought and yet answer NOTHING! I guess they go quite well with today's brainless catch phrase mentality!
