actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)

one of my favourite languages
Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer (Father of the atomic bomb)
Truly the face of a haunted man.
Possibly the most poignant sound byte ever.
He is one of the most interesting figures in modern history. You’d think the guy that headed the operation to create the single most destructive weapon would be pure evil, but Oppenheimer was no monster.
