Jetzt muss man nicht nur die passende Toilettenanlage aufsuchen sondern auch noch das richtige Pissoir benutzen… ;-)
Die Toiletten sind im Barfüßer #Reutlingen im Keller direkt neben der Brauanlage, also kurze Wege für das Recycling ;-)
"Maintenant, il ne suffit plus de trouver les bonnes toilettes, il faut aussi utiliser le bon urinoir"
(Si je me trompe, @Phipe rectifiera :-p)
@vilbi No problem. There is a definite order to how this works.
random link, but there are many:
@gemlog natürlich haben.wir auch einen "Kloforscher" in Deutschland https://www.deutschlandfunk.de/themenreihe-mittelpunkt-mensch-toiletten-fuer-ein-besseres.676.de.html?dram:article_id=378020
@vilbi I'm going to go visit my daughters and come back to this later.
You have no idea how often my brain just read "Of course we have a ???? in germany" over and over and over.
Will I ever learn this bloody thing?
@vilbi That video was both far more detailed and more interesting than I expected!
It was a bit frustrating, because the playback kept stuttering on my end for some reason.
Kloforscher?? I can't look up this word, so I still don't know it.
@gemlog it is no formal term :-) a toilett is a "Klo" and a scientist is a "forscher" so this man is the German "Kloforscher" official Professor Demiriz is Professor für Sanitärtechnik an der Fachhochschule Gelsenkirchen
@kmj @vilbi Oh, everyone is super nice to me! Don't think that. German speakers are very forgiving.
In english we have the phrase 'grammar nazi'. I have never met a german speaker like that.
When I feel bold, I post outrageously bad <language> and ppl are always nice to me still.
Sometimes ppl PM me hints. Like "you put the wrong gender on that verb - I'm a woman" or w/e. Gendered nouns and verbs are difficult for english speakers. I especially forget to fix the verbs in spanish. Verbs too???
@kmj @vilbi Remember Merkel saying a syrian had good german (she got to stay). I will say this carefully: her german sounded 'nice' to me. Some german sounds very harsh. But so does my english accent vs the queen. Or buddy's katowice accent vs his wife's krakow. Or even cantonese vs mandarin (that one's a bit extreme, i admit).
@gemlog @vilbi reminds me on a meeting at lake geneva, wisconsin. guys from all over usa and canada and me as the only non nativ english. all sounded different, some hard, some soft, even the talk was positive. the hardest for me was the guy from texas. :-) hard dialekt in sound and even hard to understand.
