Don Quixote in Holland


"Fortune," said Don Quixote to his squire, as soon as he had seen them, "is arranging matters for us better than we could have hoped. Look there, friend Sancho Panza, where thirty or more monstrous giants rise up, all of whom I mean to engage in battle and slay, and with whose spoils we shall begin to make our fortunes. For this is righteous warfare, and it is God's good service to sweep so evil a breed from off the face of the earth."
"What giants?" said Sancho Panza.
"Those you see there," answered his master, "with the long arms, and some have them nearly two leagues long."
"Look, your worship,'' said Sancho. "What we see there are not giants but windmills, and what seem to be their arms are the vanes that turned by the wind make the millstone go."
"It is easy to see," replied Don Quixote, "that you are not used to this business of adventures. Those are giants, and if you are afraid, away with you out of here and betake yourself to prayer, while I engage them in fierce and unequal combat."

allein, die welt hat mich verlassen, ich häng‘ rum, hab’s bei allen verschissen,
ich sitz‘ zu Hause, keine Lust zu gar nichts,
ich fühl‘ mich alt im Sofa meiner Omi
ich schalt‘ die glotze an, die Dalton Waltons everyone
ick glotz‘ von ost nach west, kann mich gar nicht entscheiden, ist alles so schön bunt hier
ick glotz‘ TV, ick glotz‘ TV

ick bin so tot, verlasse schon mein leben, meine schöne phantasie, meine schaltstellen sind hinüber ...
ick schalt‘ die glotze an ...
ick krieg‘ ne meise, weil na ick fass‘ keen buch mehr an, literatur, da wird mir übel, öah!
die arztromane hab‘ ick mit 12 schon hinter mich gebracht, mann bin ick belesen ey!
und die erfrischungswaffeln sind ausgelaufen
und die scheiß schokolade macht ein fetter und fetter und fetter, und ick schalt‘ die glotze an ...
TV is ne droge, TV macht süchtig, TV TV TV TV TV TV

noises like the whales

The hearing organ. There are three sections of the ear, according to the anatomy textbooks. They are the outer ear (the part we see along the sides of our head behind the temples), the middle ear, and the inner ear. But in terms of function, the ear has four parts: those three and the brain. Hearing thus involves all parts of the ear as well as the auditory cortex of the brain. The external ear helps concentrate the vibrations of air on the ear drum and make it vibrate. These vibrations are transmitted by a chain of little bones in the middle ear to the inner ear. There they stimulate the fibers of the auditory nerve to transmit impulses to the brain.
