Proof that Germans have a sense of humour

Germans come up with longest domain name

The Germans have come up with the world's longest domain name. The monicker is a quote from German literary genius Friedrich Schiller. The 200th anniversary of his death is being marked this year. The domain name is for the website operated by the German Language Society. It means: "Just how human humans are is shown by how they treat their mother tongue."
