Not really. Latin for 'bean' is 'faba'. 'Fava' is Italian. Classical Latin didn't even have the v-sound. The words we pronounce like that anyway are just an alternate spelling of 'u' to make pronunciation easier for the semivocally challenged.

I don't think Deutschland is edgy as much as provocative. Edgy is

Which is great, IMO, but different.

Here's a great analysis of the song by a German guy who knows his politics and history: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sc-euVL8xQs

Tl;dr every choice in the video was very deliberate commentary on Germany's past and isn't there just to make someone mad. Rammstein aren't my favorite musically speaking, but I really like their approach and attitude.



That's a pretty good analysis. One thing that I feel people do, is overestimate the coherence of Rammsteins politics beyond a willingness to push artistic freedom and general rebellion against east German censorship. Iirc Till is a avid hunter while Flake is a vegetarian. Kruspe fled to the west, while Flake is openly osstalgic, raging against having too much choice in supermarket shelves. Till isn't even in the same room when the music is written and writes his lyrics afterwards. They're a bunch of old east german punk rockers who decided to make more German oriented rock after the wall fell and the taboo of playing American music vanished and happened to find succes.

I doubt they all even vote for the same political parties.

I believe they were founded in Taiwan, and I think I read that eggs are symbols of life and rebirth, so they chose that name because they opened shop during a time when online retail was struggling and about to die.

Nowadays most big boxes come with a separator and if anything you end up with more than you know what to do with.

I had one as a kid that a cherished because of how rare it was.

Now I have like two dozen since they come with every big set and I can afford those, so I give them away to kids at work who only get smaller sets and thus don't have any.

There were no brick separators when I was little. I definitely used my teeth from time to time and broke a plate or two trying to flex something off of it

I've got a separator that came with a big blue box back in the early 90s, so they've definitely been around a while. Super useful.
