    Hmm, I think those words are derivative from other language indeed; I just didn't know where they come from. And you guys at Europe have some similar words with neighboring countries, right? XD

    Re: Straydogs search for a new home

    One of the most funny French word that comes out of German is vasistas. It's how we call the little windows that are put on the roofs. It comes from the german expression was ist das ( what is it ).
    Nowadays the origin is completely lost. Even the way it is spelled has changed :-)

    indeed there are similar words in many neighbouring countries. even overstepping the roman-germanic boundaries, e.g. in bavarian at least we use portemonnaie, trottoir and many more. it's long ago that french the words came here so the use is decreasing for some.

    quite interesting, yh. I've heard it on arte, I think? but didn't remember the exact context. something about soldiers asking 'what is that'?

    Re: Straydogs search for a new home

    I've found this karambolage article, maybe this was the one you heard. The origin is unclear ; I've also read it can come from a sort of shopping window and the salesman was asking the question 'was ist das' to ask for the request.

    As for phio_chan question, indeed European languages share a lot of words. In particular, I think that those which come artificially from Latin (when Latin was largely use in middle age) are similar in most of languages. In the past, English took a lot of words from French now it's the other way round, most of the technology and financial French word comes out of English. Unfortunately for me, it's not the same with German.

    golden eye - because it's the only one I remember without relistening them all

    seriously, those songs were always hits but did they stick in my mind?

    What is your obsession with dogs?


    Everytime I see you online or read "Akainu" it reminds of that red dog jerk.
