Nitpick - the SS were indeed terrible people, but it is not correct to call them a terrorist group. They were part of of the Nazi state machine, not a group outside it.

Oh, just throwing out a suggestion which would make this thread even more interesting:

What if the new category's answer #1 is from one of the previous category's 13 choices?

That's OK... I'm still trying to figure out what the difference is between a "New Jersey Sanitation Worker" and a "hitman."

... Perhaps I've watched too much of The Sopranos, maybe?
