Twenty things you didn't know about Germany

A former colleague posted this on Facebook this afternoon, and I'm already thinking of ways to integrate the list into my German Culture course this Fall.

I can't claim I knew the fact about the Trabant, though I will share this with Tennessee Tech's German students.

Also, I'll try my best to track down a copy of Rick Stein’s 'German Bite’ for a screening at this year's Filmabend. I already plan to share the BBC's "Das Auto: The Germans, Their Cars and Us", which should grab the attention of our engineering students, given that Volkswagen recently opened a plant in Chattanooga.
