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

Well, Old-High-German is to German & English what Latin is to Spanish & Italian.@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...
Who the fuck still says "ACHTUNG!" btw?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.
You have to stop asking me questions "Do you know..." followed by something that is not properly researched.
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 surnameNo
"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..
