More specifically, because they were evacuated from the Holocaust by the very architect of the Final Solution (yes, you know the one).
    PKD tossed a joke every now and then into his novels so I honestly wouldn't be surprised to happen upon such a thing during a reading.


    The prince says that the world will be saved by beauty! And I maintain that the reason he has such playful ideas is that he is in love.

    Obviously, there are many theories about what happened here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%BC_Boshe but it would be hilarious if all those experts were overthinking the situation, and it was just a prank gone horribly wrong, like this:

    Minus the Halloween.

    ...I think you posted it in the wrong thread, Lvl.
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot)
    - A duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) (Lemon) - Shirou and Shinji finally acknowledge their feelings.
    He Was a Good King (a Fate/Stay Night one-shot) - A short exploration of Beowulf's character as a hero and a king.

    But you know the Lu Boshe incident that I'm talking about, right? Also, it's a bit ironic that, if only out of necessity, white supremacist Hitler was forced to make alliances with several non-whites. Obviously, the Japanese, but also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amin_al-Husseini

    I didn't, actually. I'm not really familiar with Chinese Literature, not even the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

    There's... several movies detailing it, but generally whenever you watch a movie showing the rise of the Qin Empire. It will feel a lot, like Star Wars, then you realize that this emperor isn't so stupid as to hire a rebel's father as his personal bodyguard.

    So... Did I already mention the hyperinflation of the kingdoms of Midas and that king from the Rumpelstiltskin story?

    Makai Tensho is based on the Shimabara Rebellion, but have there been any movies based on events of the Taiping Rebellion? Like Makai Tensho, less focused on historical accuracy, and more of the fantasy aspect of someone trying to pull off Jesus and Moses stuff in Asia.

    Sima Yi is known to be able to turn his head 180 degrees, like a wolf: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sima_Yi but where does it say that wolves can even do that? Yes, this is more a biology question than a history question, but the motive for the question lies in history.

    Is Moses's staff stronger than Hong Xiuquan's sword, or are the Chinese gods simply stronger than the Egyptian ones?
