I don't know why! But that reminds me when I had been on a tip to Cologne last year with a friend of mine a man spoke to us on the station Deutz and he asked us where we come from. He asked us in English!!! And we told him: "From Northern Germany." The man: "Oh! And I'm from Augsburg. How are you?"

He spoke English again!!!

That happened to us in Prague, about a million times. Someone addressed us at the street, asking something in an english-german-mix, until one of us remarked: "Oh, you're german, too? So why do we speak English?"  '<img'>

If the Lime*-Tree Street Studios would be in

Cologne-Bilderstöckchen my nick were *Little Picture Stick*
Blumenberg = Flowerhill
Kalk = Lime*
Sülz = Aspic
Vingst = Whitsuntide (bad translation!)
Vogelsang =Birdsong
Zollstock = Foot-Rule

Look there, Linde and Kalk have got the same word in the English language, very interesting.


Bockmouth, you enlighten me! I always thought that the German "Linde" is called "linden" in English, and I never heard of a tree called "lime"... So, you made we wonder, and I found out that the tree which gave the TV series its name is called "lime" in Britain and "linden" in North America. Tssss... you live and learn!

And, to top off you Kalk and Linde bit of knowledge: The citrus fruit Limone, similar to a lemon, but green not yellow used to make Caipirinha, is called "lime" as well!
It's not a bug, it's a feature...

That's much nicer than what happened to a friend of mine and me in Inverness. A guy asked us: "Excjuus mi, du ju schbiek Tschöaman?" My friend and I: "Ja." His answer: "So schaugt's aa aus."

this reminds me of a great joke:

Two strangers meet in London. They start a conversation but they have to use their dictionary quite often.

A: "Hello, Sir! How goes it you?"
B: "Oh, thank you for the afterquestion."
A: "Are your already long here?"
B: "No, first a pair days. I'm not out London."
A: "Thunderweather, that overrushes me, you see not so out."
B: "That can yes beforecome. But now what other: my hairs stood to mountains as I the traffic saw. So much cars gives it here."
A: "You are heavy on the woodway if you believe that in London horsedroveworks go."
B: "Will we now drink a beer? My throat is outdried. But look, there is a guesthouse, let us there man go!"
A: "That is a good idea. Equal goes it loose, I will only my shoeband close."
B: "Here we are. Make me please the door open."
A: "But there is a beforehangingcastle, the economy is to. How sorry! Then I will go back to the hotel, it is already retard. On again see!"
B: "Oh, yes, I will too go. I must become my draught to Bristol. Auf Wiedersehen!"
A: "Nanu, sie sind Deutscher?"
B: "Ja, sie auch? Das wundert mich aber. Ihr Englisch ist so hervorragend, dass ich es gar nicht bemerkt hatte..."

Probably Jack Stewart or something the like. Oh yes, that's fun - let's rename all our Limestreet heroes into English!

Jack Stewarts wife would be Anne Bricks, her children Sarah, Thomas and Sophia Bricks.

Jack Stewarts ex-wife would be Helen Stewart, their children Mary, Ben and Nick Stewart.

Not to forget: The famous Louis Turner, MD. Or his late wife Elizabeth's gay son, Christian Whistle, MD.

Of course there are. So what? That doesn't make them better than older books. It makes them different. Because they (their authors) are influenced by different historical, social, political... circumstances. Because they were influenced by different other (older) books and authors. Because in different ages different literary styles were established (or regarded as fashion).

Imagine this argument in a history lesson: "Ooh, but there were important historical events after 1945, why do we have to learn the dull things which happened before? Let's forget about that!"

And I'm sure you wouldn't tell your physics teacher "Yuck, what do you mean, 'actio=reactio', that was discoverd by Newton, he lived AGES ago, even my father learned this old-fashioned rubbish, start teaching us some RECENT physical theories!!"

Then why do you think you can argue like this in literature?

Well, I didn't. What I actually meant was: Why did I NEVER hear anything about anything that happened in the world after 1945 in my history classes?

I don't put older against more recent books (or facts, for that matter) - we should read (and learn) them all.
