katya :

How can I get from the Karlsrhue/Baden airport in Germany to Strasbourg, France? thanks thank you... how do I get to the train station? is there a bus or something?

speedy_biondalez :
"there is a ryanair shuttle-bus which goes to strasbourg."
blessed_thang :
"train will be your best bet. print out a schedule of the route and wear a watch. the schedule will tell you when you have to change rails, at exactly what time, and what gate -- you often go down stairways beneath the tracks to make your next connection."
aussie_oz :
"There's a shuttle-bus directly to Strasbourg, but the service is not running very frequently: Alternatively you can go via Karlsruhe main station and taking a train to Strasbourg:"

Ok, so I get in some new magsafe ammo and there is a article on the inside of the package that claims Magsafe .380 defender ammo had more effective kill times than any other auto pistol rounds. Seems to be some doubt that the Strasbourg tests in which 600 goats were used to test kill times for different handgun rounds even ever happened. Anyone else heard of this? On paper is seems as if magsafes claim is possible. Its lightweight defender ammo shows 2-3 times the numbers on paper as other popular rounds. Some people say it never happened Others say it did happen but no one will claim it because the animal rights nuts and anti-gun nuts would be all over it. On the right of this page you can view the full content of the Strasbourg test. >

E.S.Kimo :
"It reads pretty convincing, and Dean Speir seems to go with it, so why not? If Magsafe themselves are claiming that the tests were carried out, I would say that it is true. I do agree with your last paragraph, proof of this info would be a bunny-huggers dream!"
W W D :
"Gosh, I hadn't thought about this in over ten years. I suppose they probably did happen, but I'd like to point out that shooting a half dozen goats with a particular bullet doesn't give you very robust information. It would be good to form a hypothesis for further testing, and a study with fewer rounds from fewer calibers on more goats might give better data about which to use for dispatching goats, and that's still a long, long way from saying anything about using them on people. Statistical power studies would need to be done even to find out how many goats would need to be shot."
dirtydan2 :
"If I remember correctly, I have seen film footage of the Strasbourg test. It was around 20 years ago maybe? It was pretty disturbing to say the least. They may have filed it away somewhere for that reason. The goats in the film did expire rather quickly."
sargeArmy :
"What I get out of that is that the tests might have happened. But it didn't tell us old shooters anything we didn't already know. Hit them in the lungs with a hollow point and they die. I didn't see how long it took them to die and they didn't mention how many testers the goat took out while they were waiting for him to die. And they didn't mention if the goat was armed or not. So who cares if they tested some bullets on a goat years ago. The bullets we have now have been tested on human felons."

How close is Strasbourg to the German border? A friend and I are going to be there in June and want to try to cross the border into Germany etc but we wont have a car or anything so Im curious if there is another way to go over the border without having to buy a Eurail pass just for a day trip or something or for the mere fact of saying we have been to Germany lol. also, I heard about a concentration camp in France that was the only one in the nation and that it is near Strasbourg, about 40 kilometers. I was curious if anyone knew of a tourgroup that goes there cause i cant find anyway of getting to the place! thanks so much for any help you guys can provide!

Pastor Dave :
"The German border is only about 4 km (about 2 miles). You could definitely walk. There's even a cute German village (Kehl)right on the border which will give you a real feel for Germany. When you cross the river (the Rhine), you basically head right. I'm sure there are buses also that you could take. Sorry, but I'm not familiar with the nearby concentration camp."
hec :
"I found a virtual tour of Natzweiler-Struthof camp: "
sashmead2001 :
"Strasbourg is very close to the German border. You can see Germany from the European Parliament in Strasbourg, which is one of the reasons Strasbourg was chosen "to symbolise the growing unity between European countries" (you can tell I did the tourist tour, can't you?)."
