3/10 OT Thread

So I'm creating this one, because I feel like it, and there are possible -meaningful- topics I want to discuss.

Well not really. There are a couple of topics I've got, but obviously nobody is obligated to respond to the topics, so treat it like your typical OT thread:

1. Someone explain to me the root of this "Germans are efficient" thing. I don't really get it.

2. Adaptation from print form to film. When you watch a filmic adaptation, do you judge it according to how well it has been adapted, or do you attempt to treat it as an entirely different piece of work which is simply taking inspiraation from the concepts/plot of a written text? What things do you look for in a good adaptation from print form to film?

3. Sort of a question. During the season, OT threads created during off-days/nights didn't get a ton of run. Was it just because OT talk, at that time, was still being mostly conducted out of whim in official morning threads? Or was it just the idea of having to respond to topics that sucked?

 

And finally, I'm throwing in a couple of Youtube videos (I'd embed them, but fanpost editor is hating me):
