'Curmudgeon' is one of my favourite English words, what would be the German equivalent?
Entertainer, juvenile, curmudgeon
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott

But it's higher to be a Bayer.

Said in the right regional German accent Preuß really does rhyme with nice. The way house does in certain circles.


Tyrol pronunciation of Preuß. They really don’t like them, do they?

'Proys' is about how to pronounce it
Bayern has a sort of semi-detached relationship with the RoG, rest of Germany, +1?

'Fahrtwind' is a useful German word, is there an English equivalent?
