not funny though
it often just looked unfocused
while others procrastinate
silently cursing yourself
Much energy is wasted in talking
It can be measured
to answer the following questions
Need an extra hand?
meaning, pronunciation and more
the class of ostensive definitions
words will not be understood
Word of the Day
A rapid scramble down the shattered ridge
All too soon we were on the top
And with you went my dream
I know where I was going
a 1945 romance film
A complete list
clear it to fix issues
There are a number of problems
There is or There are
what to do when it's not so clear cut
Distinctly and sharply defined
A line that represents
Tough and Tricky questions
So you think you're pretty clever?
move forward or backward to get to the perfect spot
the best way

This is off-base, I know. But there is no point in translating some of my German texts. Nevertheless, I cannot bring myself to accept the glaring gaps in the English version of this site. So this is German stuff, quoted on the English page.
The goal of the exercise was to associate freely or whatever. Participants should write a short story, each sentence had to start with a letter in your full name.

A pink spaceship lands on the secluded glade.
Slowly, the hatch opens.
No human being on this planet registered the historical event.
An event that will carry out a change in the timeline to the fact that the history of mankind is to be rewritten.

Dancing lights appear to move on the outer shell of the spaceship, when the setting is reflected in it.
All members of the team have now left the spaceship and begin to bring the time converter in position.
Still continues the old timeline of the earth for 5 minutes ...
All of a sudden the existing space-time continuum is destabilized with the inconspicuous Click the Einschaltknopfes the time converter.

The Elkement is going to analyze those and comment in English. Note that this will not add any new content. Not even the original newsletters had conveyed anything resembling 'content'.
The following newsletters have been analyzed:
In the meantime have a cup of coffee and some alien cupcakes:
