"German is a very clear language-"
If you're in the cinema and your friend says "ich glaube, es geht gleich los", then it's time to get excited. If you're in front of your mother and she says "ich glaube, es geht gleich los", then it's time to die.

In Germany they say "german language, difficult language" with a little bit Schadenfreude in their voices, if you made a mistake. Cause they don't even know why it's called "das Mädchen" while you use "die" for every female subject, which in this case would've mean the plural "girls".
Some other strangerman things were collected by a Twitter-Person with the name Moami, who makes this fuckin' hard language better and worse at the same time. Tja (translation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).
English: And they lived happily ever after.
German: And if they didn't die, they're still alive today.

German, a clear language without any misunderstan-
angestellt werden: to be hired
einstellen: to stop something
vorstellen: to introduce yourself
verstellen: to masquerade
anstelle von: instead of
And most importantly:
sich anstellen: to queue
sich anstellen: to be a little bitch

True German culture is someone whispering "Feuersalamander" and you, instinctively, as if the devil had possessed you for a few endless minutes, whispering back "mach Beine auseinander".

In German, we don't say "I love you", we say "welche Hälfte vom Brötchen willst du? Nee, ist mir egal, nimm du zuerst" and that means more than even a translation could ever describe, but it's approximately "here are both halves of my entire heart", how beautiful is that

- a German reaction to the apocalypse, Dawn of the Gods, nuclear war, an alien attack or no bread in the house
