The right quote: WHAT'S HER FACE: When you fall in a bottomless pit, you die of starvation. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 07:52, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
But I used Systran. I copied the text into the translation field, selected "German→English", and clicked Translate. The result: "If one falls into a barrel without soil, one dies at Hungern." What's up with that?

Crapfully crappy,

Computerized translators aren't going to determine the exact source text, just a possible reading. In this case, the only possible translation which matches the German is above. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 09:21, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

"Actually" is a bit of a strong word there. Yes, that's what you could get if you made a word for word translation (perhaps from Babelfish), but it isn't a real quote. One phrase in German could be translated a few different ways in English, and you have to find the one that makes sense. Heimstern Läufer 07:53, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Sockpuppet

Why doesn't It's dot com just block that sockpuppet? If its a sockpuppet it should be blocked.--H*bad 17:44, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Dot com is assuming good faith here. It's possible that this user just doesn't understand what he or she is doing. If you haven't already heard it, this might be a good time to become acquainted with Hanlon's Razor: "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity". Of course, if these sockpuppets were vandalizing the wiki, it would be a different story, but as it is, it's good for Dot com to try to find out what this person's up to. Heimstern Läufer 17:48, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
I guess so. Also that quote is deep.--H*bad 18:18, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

How are you, and how have you been recently? Anyonw i just wanted to say hi and can i ask, is it true in german, the word fat is spelt D*ck?

and what does Wenn man in ein Fass ohne Boden fällt, stirbt man an Hungern mean?

Nikolce Kocovski 07:00, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

He da, Nikolce! Long time no talk. :-) I've been doing OK, but I've been very busy because the term's ending. You can look at the top of my talk page to find out what the quote means; DorianGray has translated it there. And yeah, "dick" is an adjective in German that just means "thick" (note the similarities between the words) or "fat". (I have no problem with writing that word out because it isn't vulgar in German.) Heimstern Läufer 17:27, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Re: Cool name

Thanks. The name's from William Gibson's novel "Virtual Light" which makes reference to In-And-Out Burger (specifically to someone, maybe one of the characters, I dunno, slingshooting the "B" and the "R" off some In-And-Out restaurant's sign, rendering it "In-And-Out urge") I've never actually been to an In-And-Out before... wish they had 'em up in Canada...

Hi buddy? How's your trip? I see you can edit now and then. How it's like to be at the other end of the world? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 09:00, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

China is fascinating. In some ways, it's so different from my own Western culture that it boggles my mind. Then in other ways, it's so obviously similar... Well, it's just an amazing place. I got to climb on the Great Wall about a week ago, and that was excellent. I could say a lot more, but I haven't got much time. I'll tell you more later. Heimstern Läufer 09:12, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Characters' names in German

Greetings from a fellow German-speaking HRWiki member! Like you, I'm not a native speaker (I'm Czech and hail from Prague... what's the address for Eastern European SBemails?), but I've been living in Austria for, what is it, six years now?, so I've attained German skills that are pretty close to the natives', even though I do make a mistake from time to time.

I just wanted to comment on your translations of two of the Brothers Strong's names; I think the following might be a bit more suitable:

  • Strong Bad: Stark Böse (Strong Evil; "böse" is all kinds of evil, from park-litterer-evil (which would rather be called "bad" in English) to world-obliterator-evil)
  • Strong Mad: Stark Wütend (Strong Angry; guess why)

~~Ravu 10:24, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

Heh, "Wütend" is pretty good. I like that one. I admit that I never hear it much, though (is it more popular in Austria than Germany, perhaps?) As for calling SB Stark Böse, well, it certainly works, although I'm not fully convinced that SB counts as evil... I admit I've been calling him Stark Schlecht for a long time now, like, since I was in second-year German. So I'm kind of used to it. So I think I'm keeping it. But thanks for the input. Viel Spaß und Glück bei den Wikibeschäftigungen! Heimstern Läufer 10:49, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
"Stark Zornig" would also sound really awesome, even though it's not what I'd consider the best translation. ;-) Heimstern Läufer 10:52, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Well, as I said, German speakers use "böse" for all kinds of bad to evil. Prank-calling is enough to earn the "Böse" tag, what with stealing from Homestar, ripping Bubs off (okay, there it's both ways), hurting others (Strong Sad) down to harming with the intention to kill (Homsar). Sure, it sounds pretty heavy if it were transferred into real life, but I think "Böse" hits the nail on the head. As for "zornig", it's pretty good, but it implies that he has a grudge on someone, which is rather a too complicated concept for someone as seemingly simple-minded as Strong Mad. Anyways, you have fun too! Or, as Homsar might put it, "DaAaaAaAaaAa! Ich bin ein Lied aus den Sechzigern!" ~~Ravu 21:57, 30 August 2006 (UTC)
As a native German speaker, I think that "Stark Schlecht" captures the meaning best of all these alternatives. And good jorb with the subtitle translations, Ravu! :-)  Loafing 23:32, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

whoops, wrong name, forget to copy and paste.

Heh, no problem. Things are OK here. School just started up again for me (I wish it were school holidays here). As for what's been up with me: Well, I was in China this summer (if you haven't already seen it, look at my userpage for a picture of me on the Great Wall!), and that was really great. When I came back to the USA, I visited family for a while, then I returned to Santa Barbara for school. Good news about your tests! Keep up the good work!

[edit] You like composers?

Hey Heimstern Läufer, while recently being on wiki, when i looked up Jeremy Soule discussion page, i went to the wikipedia composers list, and i happen to find YOUR name there. You like classical music? Intersting.

Can i ask you something, Do you like Beethoven? Was he really deaf?

Nikolce Kocovski 07:32, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

There are a lot of us here who like classical music. Quite a few of us are college-trained musicians, in fact, and a few of us work in some way in the field of music. As to your question, yes, Beethoven gradually went deaf through his life, to the point that he could not hear at all at the end of his life. And still he could compose music with great skill - that's only one reason he's considered among the greatest composers of all time in any style. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:04, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
Finally getting around to answering this. Yeah, I like classical music a lot. And yeah, I like Beethoven, though I prefer Mozart and some of the other composers I name on my userpage. Qermaq's already written a fine answer to your question about Beethoven's deafness, so I'll leave it at that. Talk to you later. Heimstern Läufer 23:37, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

[edit] oh, just so you know...

the X in X-Mas represents the first letter in the Greek word for Christ, which just looks like an X. so 'X-berween' basically means 'Christberween'. Yadaman 03:29, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Indeed. Heimstern Läufer 03:39, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
That was actually mentioned at one point, but I deleted it — that paragraph was getting very long with a lot of such explanations. For such subtleties it's good to link to wikipedia (or elsewhere if appropriate) and leave it at that, since we can't practically delve into every detail of things and keep the articles relevant to H*R for the casual reader; but it still provides the links for deeper reading. (The talk pages serve well to bring to light such things also). BryanCTC 03:48, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
Yes, "the X in X-Mas represents the first letter in the Greek word for Christ", but that does not mean the X in X-berween cannot represent, for example, the Roman numeral for 10 (as in the Latin decem). Just because you have been given a hammer does not mean everything's a nail. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 10:05, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
