Interview Hitler!

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man oh man, I’d love to interview Adolf Hitler”? Thanks to the wonders of the web, now you can (IE required)!

All things considered, it’s actually a pretty cool application that could work well for students that want to learn about a historical figure in a simulated first-hand way. I was impressed with how the script handled questions. For instance, it answered my first batch of questions with appropriate (and, as far as I know, accurate) responses: “Were you vegetarian?”, “Is it true you only had one testicle?”, and “How old were you when you died?” He even had a comeback when I said, simply, “Your hair isn’t blonde and your eyes aren’t blue.”

Some controversy surrounds the site’s very existence, but really, it’s an impressive little feat and worth checking out for its technical merit alone.

This item about interviewing Hitler reminded me of a story line on ‘Family Guy’ in which Brian was dating this beautiful but stereotypically dumb blonde.

She said (more or less) “I was watching this show on TV about Hitler. He’s awful. Someone should stop him!”

The clip is somewhere on YouTube in a compilation of Stewie clips.

Hitler was a political genius. Thankfully he was not as good a military leader. He would have been better off letting his Prussian generals make the decisions for him.

HITLER HAD BLUE EYES, extremely light blue. Take out the misinformation and this might actually be a very educational tool.

Hitler was a blood thirsty tyrant, what he did was wrong and destroyed many peoples lives I mean come on, imagine your whole family being killed just because of your religeon.

You should try reading his book “Mein Kampf” he blatantly states things that he thinks are facts, but he made up!
