Though a peaceful farming people, the Old Prussians were pagans, which attracted the attention of the German Teutonic Order. Prussia was slowly and painfully overrun and subdued. The Germans replanted their own population on much of Prussian soil. They were known to proclaim, "We're the Prussians now!"

Canalboatwinner

Venice canals boat race winners with peace symbol on their home-made boat. Perhaps this is an ironic reference to the hippies that used to have an annual Venice canal boat race in the 1960's, long before they were driven out by urban renewal and a sky-rocketing real estate market.

YuppieGrainElevator

First sighting of Yuppie on metal balcony walkway. This house looks like a huge grain elevator with metal industrial walkways. This monstrosity towers over the charming vintage beach cottage next door. I've never seen human life signs before inside this building. Apparently sunlight or the humanity parading below frightened the Yuppie resident and they quickly scurried back inside their cement fortress.
