When they ask why the government will do next to nothing to help them cover the expenses, they will be told: there is no money. When they ask why the government cannot build adequate flood-prevention mechanisms, they will be told: there is no money..

The Teens was the decade of the trim whiskers. Neither Nicholas II's well-manacured beard and sweeping 'stache nor Georgy Lvov's extravagent chin curtain were any match for Lenin's smart proletarian goatee. It was only fitting that the Central Powers would be undone by Black Jack Pershing and a million doughboys in their manly but simple regulation mustaches. Perhaps that is why Hitler tried to have the tiniest mustache that he could, but the results were laughable and suited only for comedians who were trying to look silly.
