nerd love

I like the reminder that nerdy people sometimes have their own hotness scales. I don’t think they’re all in Niedersachsen, or that all Niedersachsener are like that, though.

My attempt, as an exercise in technodeutsch transcriplation, starting at around 18 seconds in:

“So what do you do?”

“Electrohydraulic guidance systems with drawbar sensors.*

“No way…OK, I do stepless precision crankshaft forging.”

“For real?”


“I would love to get a look at that sometime…a stepless crankshaft…”

“And I’d like to see a drawbar sensor sometime…”

“Oh, so what about pets?”

“Harvester robot…a little bitty one.”

“Oh. Too bad.”

*I’m stumbling here a bit with the term Deichsel. Help?

    Cute. And not one naked woman was required for that ad – they must not be selling showers.

    Deichsel can also be towing bar or shaft, according to linguee:

    Geeks rule! Or something to that effect.

      Thanks for the tip about Linguee — I’ll give them a shot next time I need a word and compare them to my standard reference,
