    Risky click of the day.

    EDIT: Joke aside, I wonder how many countries would make you face jailtime for posting this.

      Germany has pretty strict laws about representation of Nazi values. With the exception of certain art forms (movies... but not video games), you can't represent Nazi symbols, and you can't reproduce their "content". The prime example would be "Mein Kampf", which can't be printed in Germany. Not a problem in other European countries though.

        Not entirely accurate, at the very least the sale of Mein Kampf or reprinting of it is restricted in the Netherlands and a few other countries.

          I just checked, and according to Wikipedia, the Netherlands and Germany are the only European countries with restrictions on possession or sale of Mein Kampf. I don't really understand why. I think it's our history; our past maybe wasn't bright, but it's our past.

          In France, sale and possession of the book is authorized, but a warning is included inside the book. Once the book goes into public domain next year, new translations may be made and sold, always with the warning.
