German roots run deep in English.

Consider “his” and “him” which fit closely with “des” (masculine
possessive) and “dem” (masculine dative); “her” and “her” also
follow the feminine German articles.

ox; oxen; child, children; sheep, sheep; etc. all show German
pluralization. Look at the list of irregular (strong) verbs,
most are the same roots and meanings.

Where two words exist in English, the German word is usually the
more basic, closer to ‘farming roots’. – cow, beef.

With small changes in spelling, much of English and German are
the same. Wein – wine. Are these the same word, as posed in
your question? I think ‘yes’.

Bonn was a small town before Adenauer decided that it would be
nice if the new German government was in his home town. Leipzig
is, and has been for a long time, a ‘real’ city. The two cities
are so different that I can not imagine that you can move your
story from one to another.

IF one defines ALL conflict involving people as “tribal”, then
what is the advantage of using the term, as it applies on
every occasion?

Can some one please let me know whether “Internet” is masculine
or feminine? My guess is that it is feminine, as most foreign
words are feminine. But “am Internet” sounds correct to me.

How I will use it.

“On the Internet: http://…………”

Is “an” the correct word? “Am” or “An der”?

Thanks

OK, you are an American. By American standards most Europeans
smell, both men and women. The “smell” is NOT limited to
Germans.

No, they do not use deoderant. Why? Probably because they
believe that the sexual attractive pheronomes (sp?) are
important to their personality and their attractiveness.

In American, they ‘smell’; in Europe they are normal.

Did you ever ask the Germans what you smell like? Probably
a eunuch.

No the best way to learn a language is have a live-in girl friend.

I know you are female, but the advice might still apply. 🙂

An excellent list. I would add:

7. It started with a blunder, a two week “elevenses” which
can be factored out by anyone who wants to speculate on
whether the operation could have been a success.

8. It is an interesting use of heavy tanks on soft ground,
limiting their mobility to established roads. IF the
ground had allowed a (tank) front wider than 50 feet,
the outcome might have been different.

The Swiss felt that their neutrality required them to shoot at
the aircraft of all combatants. One pilot I knew mentioned
that he was flying over Switzerland and they opened fire.
He was at 15,000 feet but the shells were bursting about
5,000 feet below him. He radioed them the Swiss that their
shells were bursting at the wrong altitiude. The Swiss radioed
back “We know”.

I am unsure what you mean by “proximity fuses”.

In torpedoes and mines, magnetic detectors were used, which
allowed caused explosion when in “proximity” to large iron
objects, like ships.

In anti-aircraft shells, air pressure and ‘time of flight’ were
used to cause shells to explode at known altitudes. The ‘time
of flight’ shells were the better design.

I know of no “radar” (range and distance ..) detecting missles
(whether torpedoes, shells, or other) used during W.W.II.

But the more primitive systems, like magnetic mines, gave a
lot of problems to the US Navy.

Ten years ago there was a problem, not with 220 V, but 50 Hz.
A visible beat, which was not present at 60 Hz, caused a
screen flutter, and thus a more expensive power circuit. Not
a problem today. Most monitors are switchable between 220 and
110 volts — inside if not on the outside.

If it is one of those wacko modern British artists, then

Is “Frohes Fest” used to be PC and avoid making Jews unhappy?

Like “Happy Holidays” in the USA.

I think it is called “nuclear resonance imaging”.

No, not even close. The Allies had 150,000 invasion troops
supported by 180,000 others (naval, air, etc.). Eisenhower
figured that the invasion troops could sustain 50,000
casualties in the first three days and still win. In fact,
the losses were close to 5,000. Another five or ten
thousand Allied casualties would not have changed the
result. There was nothing that the Germans could have
done to defeat the invasion.

I think “spammen” means “to spam”, more internet slang.

Consider this post a “spam”. 😉

In general, there is no connection in the USA between a credit
card and where you bank. One can usually get a credit card at
the same bank where one banks, but it is far more likely that
the credit card will come from one of the banks specializing
in cred cards (First USA is a good example).

I would think that you would just want a credit card — which is
readily available in the UK. Other than that, I suggest that
you visit a branch of a major USA bank — First National City
(Fat City) or Chase (Chase-Rockefeller). They should allow
you to open a USA dollar acount.

An excellent suggestion. When I wear a baseball cap in Germany
everyone immediately recognizes that I am an American, even if
the “message” on the cap is in German.

Otherwise, in both Germany and the Netherlands, the language in
which I am addressed in always the local language.

Germans from the west would do well to wear a baseball cap
when visitng the neue Länder. 😉

They won it fair and square. They killed off (or drove
off) the existing landowners. They have Israel only by
the “right of might”. But having said that, keep in mind
that that is the basis of all nations.

All of the “historical rights” assertions are not worth
a single shot from a 9 mm Uzi.

If you don’t like Israel, take it away from them! But stop
whining.

Then how do the Germans make the “weiss” beer in the summer? It
requires wheat. Not one of the four ingredients.

For the best beer made in Germany, get a Watzdorfer Oktoberfest
dunkelbrau. (Their other beers are only average, at best.)
