Call in now with your English equivalents for these words! Two breaks, easy.
11 is basically "douche chills". That's great.
feelingcunty (American English)
I've been too drunk to Rhwe.
The equivalent to several of them is just plain "Fuck!"
There's no sub-Saharan African word for "work".
Conversely India has 23 synonyms for "filth", each with a slightly different connotation.
I thought the word was welfare?
Ah, the Eskimos of the Orient.
Jaysus should be Chip Chipperson's middle name.
i thought #14 was "cunt"
"Waldeinsamkeit" is just two words in one: "wald" means forest and "einsamkeit" is loneliness. English isn't as ingenious as German in the sense that we can't always just add words together and have it make sense, rather we have to spend time phrasing sentences to describe a situation.
No, the Germans do have a word for that: Stierscheiss.
Isn't the feeling of being alone in the woods simply how you feel when you're actually alone in the woods? I would never use that phrase to describe a situation where I wasn't alone in the woods. I don't understand why anyone would need it to be a word/phrase.
For example, if someone said "I had the feeling I was being watched"... that can easily describe a situation where no one is actually watching you, but it felt like it. I've never been sitting on my couch watching TV and felt like I was alone in the woods. It just seems like a redundant way of explaining a real situation someone was in. "I was backpacking through the wilderness, and man did I feel like I was alone in the woods".
