    Lingerie, sure, maybe. I've never been in a German lingerie store. But if you go to the local equivalent of "Target", "Walmart", or "JC Penny" (general department stores that sell affordable clothing items: everything from socks to winter jackets) and not a specialized lingerie store, I've only ever seen the high-cut low-waist bog-standard non-sexy underwear. Male and female styles are almost identical. There is some practical consideration for male anatomy, of course, but otherwise it's essentially the same underpants for both.

    If I go to Walmart in the US, men have a choice of boxers or briefs - with slight variations in style. Women have at least 5 or 6 style choices for non-lingerie underpants. High waist, low waist, thong-cut, high-cut legs, low-cut legs, and probably a couple others that I've forgotten off the top of my head. Mix and match these features and the choices can be almost overwhelming at times. At least you can find underpants that are comfortable for your body type, though.

    Sorry to hear of the lack of choice. I thought only Sikhs were required to wear similar underwear, male or female. Germans too? Oh, my goodness! Strange things are happening, on the road from Amritsar to Berlin. :)

    You know what? I'm opposed to teaching CMT in our public schools! Critical Measurement Theory causes our children to feel ashamed of our system of traditional valuations. I am sick and tired of the Coastal Elites telling us that we're somehow "wrong" by keeping to the measurement system we received from our ancestors. This country was built on quarts and furlongs and pecks and slugs!

    Right. And don't forget .45 .44s. .38s and .32s etc - which are all from our Revered Ancestors too - no metric.

    E.G. Robert Johnson's "32-20 Blues."

    And there's the ultra scary "I got a 32-20, built up on a .45 Frame," by the Flamin' Groovies. Lyrics here:

    I think the Flamin' Groovies stole it from Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup. the same man from whom "That's All Right Mama" was --er, appropriated, by a record co. for Elvis. Mr. Crudup was badly victimized in the music business, as were many other Black artists and composers, back in the day.

    Killin' folks in metric? How sissified would that be? Unpatriotic, too. I'm callin' the NRA right now!

    I thought WRONG. Mr. Crudup's song is a cynical "patriotic" one about enlisting in Word War II. The Groovies' version isn't even close - to that or Robert Johnson's, Skip James,' Roosevelt Sykes' or any other version of a 32.20 blues I could find. The Groovies have probably heard them all - knew it was a popular theme and made their own version, with original and terrifying lyrics, as posted above.

    My apologies to the Groovies - great effort based on a popular blues theme. Nobody was victimized by them.
    And here is Mr. Crudup's version - far different, but he, too, had a lot to say.

    That's becuz Glock ain't American.
    Google: "Where is Glock firearms located?"

    "m.b.H. (trademarked as GLOCK) is a weapons manufacturer headquartered in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria, named after its founder, Gaston Glock. While the company is best known for its line of polymer-framed pistols, it also produces field knives, entrenching tools, and apparel. Glock Ges."

    But never mind all that, cuz ".38, . 357, . 380 auto and 9mm ammunition are all the same caliber. Sez the Washington Post.
