Actually, I’m glad we can carry on to acting out or flashoholism right here with our fellow flashlight addicts from allover the world. 8^) It is definitely a different taste between BLF and TLF like comparing Dr. Pepper with Fritz Cola. They both taste sweet for sure but each of them has their own unique selling proposition.
The TLF represents thousands of members, hundreds of active members, mostly in Germany;
It seems the language barriers is a reason for not posting here.
I´m sure a lot of members are reading here in the BLF
The Messerforum is back. I believe it was only down over the weekend
What hilarious meaning does the word have in English? I just doublechecked with Wikipedia but couldn’t find anything hilarious so far. Is there a hidden connotation of this word only native speakers know about?
BTW: Your picture reminds me that I still need to watch the final chapter of Resident Evil.
Well, Uranus is pronounciated “ooooh-raaah-nus” in German and - forgive me my misanthropy - I assume that 70% of the big mass would not even know the word at all. From the residual 30% I guess 27% would associate it with the seventh planet of our solar system. 3% might know about the Greek mythology and further connotations.
That leads us to the interesting question what connotation our new fellow member used the word for.
Maybe I should change my nickname to “Jupiter” for I am a big fan of Arthur C. Clarke’s “2001 - Space Odyssey”
By the way…to get you Americans real envious of Germany…the only true „Philadelphia“ is of course located right here in Europe…with a population of 253 inhabitants. Downtown is right in front of you left and right to the street.
