You are right about moving the verb to the end due to the modal verb. I thought the helping verb should be "bin" because gefallen is a verb that indicates action, but maybe since you are stuck on the floor and not moving, it would be habe.

Germans are the worst grammar nazis I hear.

Crap, reading redmid17's post I realized I should have said indicates movement, not action. Verbs tend to be actions.

My German teachers would probably recommend sending me to some kind of camp now for my mistake.


I've heard the train rides there are lovely and there's a breathtaking spa treatment!

jedikinkoid: Valiente: Wouldn't be funnier if the cause of her injury was a big blond "instructor" named "Gunther".

Funnier, or more traumatizing. Do you really want the mental image of Merkel swinging on a trapeze with Gunther?


I don't think in German, but I would imagine it's been some time since Angela had someone annex her Sudetenland. Right in die Anschluss.

Er war ein Punker
Und er lebte in der großen Stadt
Es war Wien, war Vienna
Wo er alles tat
Er hatte Schulden denn er trank
Doch ihn liebten alle Frauen
Und jede rief:
Come on and rock me Amadeus
