HIRSCHFELD, GERMANY - Scientists in Germany have come up with a method for extracting the precious element germanium from plants.
The element is a semi-conductor and was used to develop the first transistor because it is able to transport electrical charges extremely quickly. Nowadays, silicon-germanium alloy is indispensable to modern life, crucial in making computers, smartphones and fiber-optic cables.
Transparent in infra-red light, germanium is also used in intelligent steering systems and parking sensors for vehicles.
Yet although germanium is present in soil all over the world, it is difficult to extract, and most supplies currently come from China. Now scientists at Freiburg University of Mining and Technology think they have found a revolutionary way to obtain it from their own soil - with a little help from the natural world....

Will they grow germaniums?
Reading the article will answer questions like that.
Germanium from Germanic grown Geraniums in Germany?
The Germans have got nothin’ to do with it.
My favorite is red germanium.

Damn, now I want icecream!
“germanium rich water”
Have you ever seen a German drink a glass of water (’wasser’) Vet?
No, of course not. Beer/beir is all they drink. And for good reason.
They plan a Fourth Reich, by sapping and impurifying our precious bodily fluids through the introduction of germanium.
There are a number of documented instances of plants pulling “bad” elements/compounds out of polluted dirt.
Plus they invented Wolfram which has the same density (for all practical purposes) as Gold. Coincidence?
And tungsten, or ‘heavy metal’.
Wolfgang Van Halen’s bass guitar is made from it. It has a very profound sound, but unfortunately it is so heavy that only weightlifters like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Ranier Wolfcastle can lift it.
“The Germans have got nothin to do with it.”
Or so they would have you believe...
/old Norm MacDonald joke
Oh Okay, that’s it then, I never found MacDonald funny so it was just meaningless to me.
Germs originated in Germany...
It was part of a skit involving German Shepherds.
It was funny.

I only know of germanium through working with pro audio. Till now I’d thought it was some antiquated transistor materiel long since replaced by newer stuff. I have several new boxes which have a toggle labeled”germanium” which when switched gives the audio a noticible “classic” soubd.
