We were looking for flashcards but couldn’t find any. The Chinese don’t seem to know them. And on our first day all the shops had closed at 6 pm, even the Foreign Language Bookstore where we wanted to get preprinted ones. But I found something else in another bookstore:
Did you know that Giant Pandas usually don’t feel carsick?

Bei dem heutigen Gastvortrag (08.30 Uhr - 10.00 Uhr in MW0001) von Herrn Goetzeler von OSRAM wurde ein schwarzes Kästchen als Anschauungsobjekt einer neuen LED-Technik im Publikum herumgereicht. Dieses ist nun verschwunden. Der Referent und Prof. Wildemann sind dementsprechend empört.
At today’s guest lecture (08.30 am - 10.00 am in MW0001) of Mr. Goetzeler from OSRAM, a small black box was handed round the audience as an example of a new LED technique. This is now missing. The speaker and Prof. Wildemann are accordingly outraged.
A friend studying psychology started a Skype chat to ask some friends whether they would take part in an experiment. She was looking for people between 23 and 29 years. Here’s one response:

There were some wind players, slides with space shuttles and the solar system and then Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. mult. Wolfgang A. Herrmann, president of Technische Universität München appeared and started to talk about Prof. Bulirsch.

Und dann schließlich zurückberufen, als Ordinarius für Höhere Mathematik an die Technische Hoschschule München die damals gerade schon Technische Universität München hieß und jeder weiß mittlerweile was diese drei Buchstaben bedeuten. Von hinten rein gelesen bedeuten sie, lesen sie sich wie Mut und Mut, denke ich, für die Zukunft, können wir auch haben.
And then finally called back as full professor of higher mathematics to the Technische Hochschule München which was already called Technische Universität München at that time and by now everyone knows what these three letters mean. Read from behind they mean, they read like courage [Mut is German for courage] and courage, I think, is what we can also have for the future.
The students council wrote some weeks ago:
Die Anleitung für das Erstellen des persönlichen Stundenplans zum Hauptstudium wurde überarbeitet und verbessert, jedoch ohne Änderungen.
The manual about creating a personal schedule for the advanced studies has been revised and improved, without changes.
Sure, Safe An Alien is a rather useless application, but I like the concept and the aliens look nice. What I don’t like is the fact that, so far, it has been impossible to download my alien. And I’ve been trying it for over a month now. The only thing I get is a magenta box saying:
