Nitpicker rides again: square km??? Pray tell, what unit of measurement be that? Kyrmse 06:17, 7 December 2005 (PST)

I'm just wondering, is there something odd about the unit square kilometer in these circumstances? Does there exist some convention to use square mile? RoMex 11:32, 7 December 2005 (PST)
Well, RoMex, you may want to look at SI; metrics didn't come to the fore *there* like it did *here* only weird old Louisianne embraced the metric system. BoArthur 12:49, 7 December 2005 (PST)
That really explains everything! Thanks! I will naturally use the SI units! RoMex 13:08, 7 December 2005 (PST)

Rhenish Palatinate

I assume that Bavaria didn't get the Rhenish Palatinate *there*, or am I wrong? --Sikulu 16 December 2005, 09:55 (GMT)


  • Here* NSU was a firm from Neckarsulm, Würtemberg. Should it be Bavarian *There*? I think makes more sense to transfer NSU and its flag to Wuerttemberg and replace it by VEB BMW or perhaps VEB Glas (*here* Glas was headquartered in Dingolfing, Bavaria, and became part of BMW in 1966). VEB BMW and VEB Glas could be part of same automotive group but producing luxury and people's cars respectively.--Pedromoderno 03:09, 7 February 2017 (PST)
I think the inclusion of NSU was a mistake on the part of whoever created the article, perhaps confusing it with the modern-day Audi, which is headquartered in Bavaria. However, while Audi is in part descended from NSU, neither NSU nor the original Audi are from Bavaria--in fact, Audi started in Leipzig. (The "German Detroit", if you will.) So yes, I think that the state auto company of Bavaria would be BMW, with Glas as the "budget" brand for BMW but the company itself being VEB Bayerische Motoren-Werke.
