alcohol may be the trigger. Or the mere presence of women. As an excuse, of course, both may not apply. A lot of men can't be nice to talk, like the primitive man on the Oktoberfest. You drinking drooling to the bet. Gnaw greedily on a chicken drumstick. Roar. Burp. Or constantly chasing after aprons. The Oktoberfest awaken your animalistic most shoots.
Not only women, even some sober-at-heart men, is noticed now. Even more: you have to understand that the Urtrieben of the men is excellent money at the Oktoberfest. You have to tickle you. Wonderful the works at the "Hit the Lukas". Nowhere else on the Wiesn, the men are on the Splurge and COO.Our Bavaria-stories of the year

Request your very own, with a large Hammer on an attacker to break in, and is stilled against the Euro. In the end, no blood splatters, but at least lamps, colorful lamps, if man carried with Hammer the knob all the way to the top. "Zenzi, i am the Greatest", is up there written. And the Hercules passes his Beloved a Rose out of plastic.
One could point to countless other examples of how men blow it up to the folk festival unabashedly. In the käfer tent. Everyone wants to show that he has the most beautiful costume, the most beautiful woman and the most luxuriant account (My house, my car, my boat...you know that already). Or at the shooting range. If the neighbor man aims a little better than you, and the anger rises in a up, is loading for so long, until even the own girlfriend gets a Teddy bear. Or on the bumper cars. It is, so to speak, a German Urverlangen to drive the best, fastest and most courageous Auto. With the woman in the passenger seat of the is crashed next to man, therefore, with the full force of the gang.
Two students from Poland have driven the commercialisation of the male fervor now on the top. During the week you have drawn in the evening, a mobile chin-up bar on the Theresienhöhe with the inscription: "Hang for two minutes. Win 100 Euro." Two minutes in chin-up position to a pole hanging - this is a hell of a long time. The drunken Kraftmeiern along the way, of course, that was no matter. One after the other, paid the students, ten Euro, to allow the rod to hang.
For the first proud men it ended in a debacle. Of the more than 200 four survived only two minutes. Disappointed, the women remained; on the ground, destroyed her completely debilitated men. The laughing winners were at the end of the students made in a few hours, more than 1600 Euro. If you find the good, or not. There are men who have actually switched on your brain.
