More: Dairy wars: when a glass of milk is really a glass of m*lk (23. July 2017)The Oxford English Dictionary already has two definitions for milk: “an opaque white fluid produced by female mammals” or “the white juice of certain plants”. Dairy farmers may feel that soya and almonds are stealing milk’s identity, but perhaps they need to accept that the cows have just lost their monopoly.
Das Reichstagsgebäude (kurz: Reichstag; offiziell: Plenarbereich Reichstagsgebäude) am Platz der Republik in Berlin ist seit 1999 Sitz des Deutschen Bundestages.@Peter , please also educate us on the democracy-strengthening role that your British "tabloid" newspapers perform ...
The pro-Brexit newspapers have finally lost touch with reality
And no, the Bundestag is still called Bundestag.
Ironically, the "Reichstag" building was only very shortly occupied by those who are nowadays commonly associated with the "German Reich" (to be more precise, the "Third" one). So your quip falls a bit short.
I'm not averse to drama but the title isCripes... quite a bit of drama considering the thread title.... (gets the hell out, quickly)
"Revered" president?! Where did that come from, and why would you post that here?? I think, perhaps, you may like to instigate spats, because that comment is a gross generalization....your revered President
Il ne pas de quois.... it's worse than your German.Pardon my French.
Thank you for that IS, sincerely. I bow to Andy's superior knowledge of German and Germany. German is only the second of the 4 languages I speak fluently, though I have lived there too and do speak the language on a daily basis, as my best friend in Spain is German and my grandmother was German, so I have German family. Having lived in Germany, the UK and Spain, I have come to realize how much less bureaucratic the UK is than the 2 other countries and that is the reason why I think that we will never be comfortable in the EU.Ordnung muss sein!
I have complete confidence in Andy's knowledge of all things German (seeing as he lives there, and his first language is German). The whole EU question and the UK's relationship to said entity is a complicated issue for which we have other threads, though. See e.g. these threads:
UK - News - Brexit - should the UK leave the EU?
UK - Brexit aftermath/repercussions
I would never want to offend you MadamS and I certainly do not think that all Americans are the same. In fact I believe that your views and mine are very similar on many subjects and you are right in a sense, I do like it when people disagree with me. I think that is much more interesting and productive. Vanilla was never my favourite flavour.Il ne pas de quois.... it's worse than your German.
It's OK, you can stop thinking all Americans are the same now. May the force be with you.
Hi AndyI feel strongly reminded of the last episode of the TV series "Yes Minister" (episode 22, "Party Games")
Watch it - very amusing!!! But don't miss the other 21 episodes leading up to it.... Can not endorse that series strongly enough...
You misunderstand me MadamS. I don't like conflict and I only like drama when its in the theatre, on TV etc. or if someone is using it for comic effect. You have taught me a new word (snit); First I would never want to goad you and secondly I would be very sorry if I caused you to get angry or agitated. But a disagreement over politics or history can be very helpful and should not be taken personally. It can help to remove misunderstanding and in that way is for the good of all concerned and ultimately can resolve problems.Hmm... good to know. I shall now know better than to be goaded into a snit simply because you appear to enjoy unnecessary drama & conflict.... LOL
