help administration these flithy Americans are discriminating against my noble heritage
I'm 45% German according to some DNA test, my mother's side of the family is proudly German, immigrated early 20th century I believe.

Dürfen wir uns umarmen, Bruder? Ich meine nicht zu necken. Ich bin betrunken.

I'm also 50% Irish, figures...

Before... maybe fled WWI, I can't recall the familial details at the moment.

They owned and operated a hotel in a German family name. :)

but definitely pre-WWII

my German heritage grandfather was a doctor in WWII, fighting with the Americans

@December Flower someone once told me that modern English and German languages, at their root, are supposedly very similar, at least grammatically. I don't know how true that is, but thought you might know?

I was tripping in Amsterdam once and the Dutch road signs were literally an alien language. Some very kind stranger who spoke English got me back to my hotel room. Otherwise, I may have been lost forever in that trip... might have just frozen to death it was like -403c with wind chill. Amsterdam in the winter...

@AbbeyLee i'ma get all cereal for a minute.
I appreciate you. You're a real muh'fucka and you get it. I have truly appreciated the conversations we've had behind the scenes, and I will never forget when you have reached out to me of your own accord. I love love LOVE that we share our immense love, adoration and idolisation of Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell, that's an instant win in my books. You're a fuckn gem 💎

couldn't be that long ago, or they mingled with other Germans, then it's almost impossible to find out
if you know the family name I might know the region, but some names are everywhere

Well, Old-High-German is to German & English what Latin is to Spanish & Italian.
So yeah, we have the same origin, since the Anglo-Saxons were just a tribe of vagabonds banished from Germany,
but still Germans.

This however does not help English-speaking natives to learn our language faster or something.
You're still screwed sadly, because the English language got rid of all the complex grammar.
I wouldn't say the Grammar is similar, since yours is non-existent, and ours is an Oxford dictionary kind of thick book full of weird and very specific rules.
The fact alone that you don't gender nouns is a big blow, and sadly I have never met an English native who would ever grasp this concept,
even after 30+ years of learning German. French or Spanish speakers have a much higher chance here, that's just the sad truth.

It does however help us learn your language easily. Learning English, wow, I've never had a language come so easily and naturally to me,
and that's how most Germans feel. It's like super simplified German with a bit of French and Latin mixed in, and super tacky pronounciation.

Hm, yeah Netherlandsk(which is the name of the language btw, Dutch is just a region) you don't even have to learn as a German,
it honestly just sounds like a German accent. Same with Swedish, Norwegian, Dansk, and Flamish, you just understand them by default. At least we get the gist
For an English speaker, I don't know.. it's probably super hard to understand..

I was walking through some European airport once and some man behind me yelled "Achtung!", I had no idea what that word meant at the time, but he yelled loud enough for me to get out of the way anyways. He was pulling a suitcase in a hurry, as if it was radioactive or worse.

I also drank some beer once, years ago, and a few today as well.
Who the fuck still says "ACHTUNG!" btw?
that's so military.


I'd say "Vorsicht!" or "Mach mal die Augen auf du Penner"

You have to stop asking me questions "Do you know..." followed by something that is not properly researched.

No :)

"Do you know..." coming from me is more just a conversation opener than a literal "do you know this because I do and it's a fact. I reel it off in like five seconds flat.

Wikipedia does say that about Trump though..

I've got a bit of German but not as much as I thought. Turns out there's more Scandinavian and Russian.

Dad's side is British, Irish, Scottish and Scandinavian.

I can tell you why there's no chance he's Bavarian: that last name does neither exist here "drumpf", nor is it the correct structure to be a Bavarian surname

As i said, it's Rheinland Pfalz and theres a lot of conjecture when it comes to this lawyer named Drumpf

Ive checked German databases and in the 17 or 1800s there would have been the documentation to record a lawyer. Very fishy.

I can find my great great grandfather who was just some nobody who got killed by a train, but not a lawyer? Verry fishy.
