Completely random, I know (but that's what this forum's for, I suppose), but is anyone else here learning/does anyone else know German? Share your thoughts, jokes, stories - anything having to do with the language.

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

The biggest joke I can think of is that My Mother is from Germany and spent many years trying to teach it to me. I just couldn't pick it up beyond a few basic phrases. It's the most impossible damn language I've ever tried to wrap my mind around. No wonder we always invade other countries. We just want to own a nation that speaks a sensible language.. tongue.gif

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
