If I have to forget anyone, I'm sorry?

Trying to figure it out without help

Sorry I didn' translate it, I want to push you guys to learn German - it's worth it, so much interesting in that language which you can't translate without substantial loss. I'll translate it now - but only, if you in return tell me the secret of who is selecting what I get to see on Imgflip (I know it is selected or "censored"), and why I even cannot see my own custom-made memes except on my profile (another meme was deleted altogether - too much truth in it for the people on this page, obviously: "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth). So her it is:
"And in case I forgot to insult someone, I would ask him to apologize", (Another one, where something gets lost in the translation).

I know French and English, Spanish is almost close to French. German has some strong English signs to them

(Have to correct myself: the meme was not deleted, just no featured) A big part of English is derived from German - you can tell by the spelling. Another big part of English is derived from Latin/French, and the high education part of course from Greek, and there are some other roots from local old languages.

Sorry, overlooked that comment and the notification, now I saw it again: here are two links to German pages (sorry, please google English pages yourself): https://www.uni-trier.de/index.php?id=37329 and https://www.nzz.ch/eine_sprache__viele_paten-1.746982.

I love foreign language memes on imgflip. Google Translate is not perfect but getting better all the time.

Thanks, Andrew, that is great (sorry for the great delay in reverting to your comment) - I think everyone should take them as an incentive to always learn a little bit more of a foreign language. The one really sad thing with language is that you have to read it in the orginal in order to really understand the merits of it - in this respect music, mathmatics and the natural sciences have a great advantage, because their language is understood internationally. It is very interesting how language embosses thinking patterns - you only realize this when you speak at least two of them fluently. I have been translating scientific texts for many years, and this is one of the most profound lessons one can get in life. Never ever trust a translation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
