Hey guys, I had a creative moment in the past and made a Posting. A lot has happened in the meantime and I had the urge to expand my existing contribution. Unfortunately, this post has already been archived in the German forum.
But, thanks to my rudimentary knowledge of English and an unspecified online translator, I thought why not translate the whole thing and share it here!?
The following is satire and my kind of humor, not everyone has to like it, but I think Someone or the Other will find a point that match or something to think about.
So enjoy reading and don't take it too seriously.
If you want, you can translate these texts and post them in the other forums, but I would like to ask, that the person links the original and points to this post and my name.
I'll add more if my inspiration will offering new content! And of course, there might be some mistakes in translation, feel free to infom me about it!
