That actress looks almost like Emily Deschanel without makeup.

Nope. A few hints: It's foreign and Jaime Lannister's in it.

YES! So the brunette is the main character, Rose (Zoey Deutch), the Dhampir who fights evil vampires.

Down with this false, non-gender-specific use of faux German articles! Unless you would specifically refer to a female wrestler ("die Ringerin"), the word for wrestler ("Ringer") is male. It's never neutral. Hence, the correct article is "der" and not "das".

(That being said, for non-native speakers, it is very hard to learn the gender of German nouns, because there is no logical system to it. And apart from that, a WWF-type wrestler would probably be called a "wrestler" in German, too, in order to distinguish it from proper sport, i.e. Olympian Greco-Roman or freestyle wrestling. You'd still have to use the male article, though.)

Oh, what am I doing here, wasting precious time at work: I've gotta get home early to catch the second half of Italy v. Costa Rico. Go, los Ticos!

The fact that your language decided to give articles a gender is just absurd.

So, since we're on the subject of German, riddle me this Herr Unke: why do children go to a Kindergarten, while trees are grown in a Baumschule?

Where do you live, BTW? We should get together for a beer or three if were at all close...

Not grammatically, though. ;)

Actually, it's the nouns, which have a gender, rather than the articles, which just follow the noun. Kinda like in French or Spanish (minus neuter). It is absurd, indeed, although not as absurd as our grammatical distinction between addressing somebody formally ("siezen") or informally ("duzen").

Well, somebody owning a tree nursery (if that's the correct English term) once explained that the term derives from the saplings being planted in orderly rows, just like pupils (used to) sit in orderly rows. I suppose the term is much older than 1968. As for the garden part in "Kindergarten", I can only refer to the German wikipedia page, according to which a man named Friedrich Fröbel invented the institution as well as the name.

It would be great to meet up for a beer and chat about movies, but I'm living nowhere near München, unfortunately. Or rather not unfortunately, because I live in Hamburg, which Hamburgers like me (stop the sniggering, fast food enthusiasts) like to describe as "the most beautiful city in the world". If I should be in or around Minga some time, I'll let you know in advance.

I love Hamburg. If I had to live in any other city in Germany apart from Munich, it would be Hamburg. But, there's a reason that Munich is, and has been for the past 10-15 years, in the top 5 (and more than once number 1) of the best cities in the world to live. ;)

If I get up Hamburg way, I'll definitely drop you an note as well. Always fun to hang out with die Fischköpfe. :P
