    Well, I bet arnold still buys the same size he did when he was 30 yrs old. Even though he is 60 now and probably lost more than a few inches off his chest.

    Arnold's shoes are atrocious and he needs a new tailor. [​IMG]

    He should walk over to Savile Row and be schooled.

    His height seems to be controversial.

    I'm 6'1 and I have met Arnold - he was my height or perhaps a tad shorter but definitely 6 feet+

    Did we really ever expect Arnie to be well dressed? Sorry did I miss something here?

    How on earth ,California ,one of the most creative region on the planet,voted for this Alpine creature?
    I would be interested in a rational explanation around this strange nomination...
    Is the economy is getting better ,the debt down?


    Gott im Himmel, wir haben sehr gern unser Stadthalter! Als er jung war, wurde er der schoenste Muskelmann der Welt, denn wurde ein beruhmte Schauspielder, und hat er Regierungkraft gestudiert, und nun ist er ein grosser Stadhalter.

    Arnold, Arnold ueber alles,
    Uber alles in der welt!
    Wenn es stetzt zum schutz und trutz,
    Bruderlich zusammenhelt!
    Von der Klamath bis an Calexico,
    Von des Ozeans bis an Nevada,
    Arnold, Arnold ueber alles.
    Uber alles in der welt!

    (With apologies for my fractured German! Nimmer hat ich Deutsch im schule gestudiert.)

    Not to get political, but I'm kind of surprised that Arnold is Blair's last visitor to No. 10, not that he's not important, but I expected bigger for a high profile PM after 10 years in office.

    Blair is going going gone......Politics is a very fickle affair ,that's the reason why they all want to stay in power,by any means!!!!!!!!!!!!
    One day ,a very powerful man on the world stage ,tomorrow a PR for the Middle-East initiative......
    Power means money and network for your after- life...........
    Blair will finish at the UN or at the World bank....
    He is still very popular in the USA.

    Interessanter Beitrag. Aber Arnold gehört schon noch uns - den Österreichern.

    Auch wenn die Kaiserhymne bis 1918 unsere offizielle Hymne war, singen wir seit 1946

    Land der Berge, Land am Strome,
    Land der Äcker, Land der Dome.
    Land der Hämmer, zukunftsreich.
    Heimat bist du großer Söhne,
    Volk begnadet für das Schöne,
    Vielgerühmtes Österreich,
    Vielgerühmtes Österreich.

    Ihr German ist nicht so fractured, aber beim Geschichtsstudium happert es noch ein wenig.

    Sorry,guys for interfering into this abrupt surge of soft nationalism but could it be translated?
    I do not know a lot about the Hasbourg family and the Austro-Hungarian empire is still a bit of a mystery ....
    Mittle-Europa and Metternich,the Austrian Talleyrand,that's my boys...

    Translation from a non native Englisch speaker but native German.

    Oh my god, we love our governor. When he was young, he became the most handsome muscle-man in the world and a famous actor. He studied politics and learnded about the power of his clan(Kennedy). He is a great governor.

    Arnold, Arnold forever,
    over everybody in the world
    When it stands brotherly in protection and shelter
    From Klamath to Calexio
    From the ocean to Nevada
    Arnold, Arnold...

    I didnt study German since school.

    Interesting article - But Arnold belongs to us - the Austrians

    Though the emperor's anthem(Haydn) was the official national anthem until 1918, since 1946 we sing:

    Country full of mountains, Country along the river(Danube)
    Country of fields(acres), Country of cathedrals
    Country of sledges for a promising future
    Nation exceptionally gifted with beauty,
    Highly boasted Austria

    Your German is not so fractured, but your studies in history are sort of poor.

    What is absolutely great with national anthems is how objective they really are!!!
    Rule Britannia,Land of hope and glory,etc...[​IMG]
    Concerning the Hasbourg family ,i do admit a certain lack of knowledge even if Metternich the Great Chancellor whoo carved post Napoleon Europe and Franz-Ferdinand are in my mind for obvious reasons....
    Are you really proud of Arnold or is it a joke?
    If i were Austrian ,some greats musicians such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and others will spring to my mind more than a steroid-fed third rate actor...
    There is a tradition in California with bad actors becoming politicians but Arnold has done it without McCarthysm....

    The real English national anthem is Jerusalem, in the minds of many. Better the visionary Blake than that soap box stuff.
