"Many of these texts are written by lawyers, twisted sadists with some sort of grammar-trauma who get off on writing labyrinthine page-long sentences without any commas." - advocatusdiaboli


If it's written in German the words are all run together. Germans love to make up words that are like four or five words all written together. Like "schadenfreude." I've seen other German words that are like two or three or four words all written as one word. It's like they don't know where the space key is?
