My brother went to Europe for a month with his wife and I was tasked with keeping the house safe from never-do-wells (IE, burglars) and taking care of the cats and fish. Today the gave me a chunk of the Berlin wall.

Holy crap! I'm holding a peice of Communism on my hands! (He told me the Germans sell peices of the wall....The wonders of Capitalism!).

Yeah I used to have some chunks of the wall too.

Lousiest quality concrete I ever saw. I have two uncles who own ready-mix companies and they would fire you just for having a chunk of that shit in your pocket!

I need to get a peice of ass but a peice of the Berlin Wall would be cool too.

wouldn't you rather carry a piece of communism in the form of an AK or SKS ?

+1

The OBVIOUS joke here would be, "Well, at least with the chunk of concrete, I could hit what I was aiming at!"

I already have 4 peices of communism- Chinese SKS, 3 Romanian AKMs, and one funky "Mao is teh suck1!11!!!1" t shirt.

I was in Germany before, during and after the wall. A couple of friends and I knocked down about 15 foot of it with a maul we bought at the Berlin PX. I still have a couple pretty big chunks.

I lived in Berlin while the wall was still up (1979-1982.) I'd love to get a chunk of it someday.

My brother told me that larger peices of the wall cost TONS of money. There is a 1ftx1ft chunk of the wall in the PCC school library.

There's a food court by the Space Needle in seattle that has a section of the wall something like 3' wide and it was pretty tall. The last time i saw it i was like 12 so i have no idea how tall it really is

I got a few pieces from a buddy of mine that was staioned there when the Wall came down.

Take note that you should probably keep it sealed in plastic, I was told that the wall was full of asbestos

There's a casino here in Vegas that has a large section of the Berlin wall behind the urinals in one of it's bathrooms; you get to piss on the symbol of the failure of communism!
