Deutsch ist wirklich schwierig. Sie wollten es schwieriger machen durch Mathematik hinzufügen?

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Danke schön! I've always said that German is not in fact a living language but rather a mathematical equation! You've completely utterly proven my point. To add to the 'equation'.... no logical brain dumbs the verbs at the end of the sentence one after another in one big row...the brain processes them before - at the center of the action (!) A further living proof confirming the existence of German mathematical formulas. :D

Sorry, I am native. But I love it how you break it down.  Worth a big smile.
