/Verlagskaufmann/ comes out as 'publisher or
bookseller' in my dictionary. Sounds like an
interesting line of work; right now, I'm wanting to go
into genetic research, but since I'm a lowly
first-year in college, I have the option of changing
my mind.

Ehh... Just _how_ does one use /das/ with a personal
name? Do I even want to know :-o?

I learned a lot of my German slang from 'Lola Rennt'
:). I assume knowing how to say "hurry up before the
cops come" will come in handy some day...

"Where am I? What is this thing called 'the world'? Who is it who has lured me into the thing, and now leaves me here? How did I come into the world? Why was I not consulted?"

--Søren Kierkegaard

"You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait, just learn to become quiet, and still, and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet."

--Franz Kafka, Journals
