    It's good to see you in action but one thing puzzles me.... Why is it, whenever you speak, you start off in a deep, male Germanic accent speaking English, then halfway through you change to a high-pitched, female Oriental accent and start speaking Cantonese/Mandarin....?

      Must be a linguistic thing. I've noticed the exact same thing from a Chinese friend of mine when he speaks in English versus when he speaks in Chinese to his family...

    Nice tie. I don't know much about the language (in fact, I barely understand English, and it's my only language), but she seemed to be using a great many more words than you were.

    Hi Bertel, nice to see you. Bist sogar noch wiederzuerkennen. Unfreiwillig (?) komisch. Wie in alten Zeiten. Am Ende der Welt. Mußte herzlich lachen. Und freue mich, dass es Dich noch gibt. Blauweiße Grüße aus dem Chiemgau von der ehemaligen Ruth Ladwig (die heute Ruth Rothweiler heißt)
