    I studied German in college (not seriously, just a komisch way to keep Torts lectures apart, and convince me and my pals that all drinking of beer was a study of German culture.)

    Now, I've moved to Munich for my job, and three things occur to me as I sit in a bar across the hof from my office in Theresienhöhe.
    1. Even though I have studied German at a respectable institution of higher learning, I have no fucking idea what anyone's saying.
    2. I should really get an English keyboard for this damn thing.
    3. I don't ever recall German sounding so dirty. Not quite obscene, but just suggestive of dirty words.
    Oh, and I discovered Speedoguy's avatar. Apparently, he's extra combustible.

    I <3 German - it sounds so damn angry... sigh... In high school a friend of mine was taking German and came out of class one day laughing her ass off. I asked her what was so damn funny, to which she replied, "An apen coonen moin achter vlat vlegen!" and fell over laughing again. (sigh.. kids..)

    Give you a dollar if you can tell me what that means ;)~

    Oh yes - Do let me know when you learn how to say "Fuck me harder!!" and "Spank my ass!" :D

    I think you've selected the easiest sexual terms in German.

    "Fich mich harter" will do for the first. Though there are other ways to say it using the rather amusing verb "bumsen".

    "Versohlst du mich meinen Arsch" for the second, assuming you're familiar with the spanker. If it were your boss spanking you, for example, it would be "Versohlen Sie mich meinen Arsch."

    Fich mich. I dunno.

    German bars seem to have alomst universal wireless access, I've noticed. I'm now sitting in a gay bar near the Sendlingertor, which also lets me drink viele biere zu vielen and log on kostenlos.

    In this marvellous bar, the Blaupunkt plasma screens are showing a subtitled version of MTV's Pimp My Ride. I am pleased to report that when written down, I could understand most of it, including Ihres Auto ist vollgepimpt! and Das ist megakuhl!.

    The screen has just changed. We're now watching Pimp My Ride UK, where they're hotting up a 76 Fiesta. Perhaps there will be some aspects of the USA I'll miss.

    Back atcha soon

    German is not a romance language it tends to sound gutteral like one is clearing ones throat.

    Maybe it's just me, but the romance languages are much more melodic to my ear. The most widely spoken Romance language today is Spanish, followed by Portuguese, French, Italian, Romanian and Catalan. All but Catalan are main and official national languages in more than one country. A few other languages have official status on a regional or otherwise limited level, for instance Friulian, Sardinian and Valdôtain in Italy; Romansh in Switzerland; Galician, Occitan Aranese and Catalan in Spain (the latter of which is also the only official language in the small sovereign state of Andorra). Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and Romanian are also official languages of the European Union and the Latin Union; French and Spanish are two of the six official languages of the United Nations.

    I love love LOVE getting fucked by a German man. There's just something about it that is hotter than hot!

    And if you've watched German porn you'll know that they have very few inhibitions. That shit is hot! The French have NO sexual inhibitions from my experience, but the Germans are following close behind them.

    Yes. They are very nice. Nice big hung hairy German men. Mmmmmm.

    Some German sounds very smooth and soft to me, spoken by very pretty upperclass northern German women. Bitte.

    French is the only romance language I like. I think some of the romance languages are anything but beautiful and melodic. I do think German (Hochdeutsch) can be very sophisticated-sounding.

    I like French, German and Hungarian.

    Gutteral sounds are often made in French, too (particularly in Eastern France and in French-speaking Switzerland.

    Ja Gerne! I love it when the flight attendants on Swiss Air give their announcements in German. How do they make it sound so sweet and delicate? The only thing as good as that is a Russian or Eastern European woman repeating the names of the vodkas to you slowly in your ear in Russian.

    "Smeeernoof". That's what I'm talking about.

    (No, I haven't been to Russia, but there are plenty of Eastern European women in the midwest US)

    Whatever I hear in German my mind translates to 'lick my arse'.

    Whenever I hear in British English my mind translates to 'I secretly think I'm better than you'.

    youre just jealous of our &#196; &#220; &#214; letters, admit! :p

    as already mentioned, German is the complete opposite of romance, but when a clean, useful language for trade or working is needed, nothing stands a chance against German.

    and the sounds depens on the area, hopefully no one here has been to Eastern or Southern Germany, its just a pity.
    If you want to hear the most erotic German ever, call me 555-worldwarboy ;)

    Even saying Ich liebe dich sounds dirty, but for LPSG it is appropriate. Think about it.:biggrin1:

    God I love German.... I just can't emphasize that enough. lol

    The BF is fully aware that if, should fate smile upon me and a tall, big-built German with a decent schlong and a thick, rough accent would happen to end up within oh.... twenty miles of me.... He's toast. TOAST, I say! ;D
