Sometimes I don't really understand some things and dictionary can't help me, so I ask you here.

So wrote Brian this: Been very busy lately but having a ball! Does that mean: I'll keep it rolling? In German: Am Ball bleiben?

And this one from Errowyn: What happens after auto-pilot goes out on you? No idea...

I'm still learning and most I can understand by the context. I hope you can always understand what I mean. Sometimes I use an online-dictionary and I count on it.

I'll be glad to explain them.

"Having a Ball":Sehr Spass. I would "have a ball" at a party, or some other place, because I would be having a lot of fun.

"Goes out on you": This is a bit more complicated. This means stops working. Remember that in this sentence, "you" is similar to "man", because they both refer to the generic person. If your computer breaks (like it freezes), then it "goes out on you".

Verstehen Sie jetzt?

Nice Job Ohboy
Viel Spaß btw, the other one is "'very fun"


Yeah so having a ball means something like "sich köstlich amüsieren"
and going out on you, like ohboy said very well as well, is that it's simply stopping to function. Like an engine that runs out of fuel and turns off.

Thank you very much, Oh Boy and Jassian!

I never thought that "Having a ball" means "Having fun".

I never thought that "This is my sausage" (Das ist mir Wurscht) could translate to: "This is none of my concern."

it's technically "This is a sausage to me", so something like 'that's as important as a sausage to me.'

Oh wait it wasn't 'a sausage' but 'sausage' so "this is sausage to me".
Well, to some people sausage can be quite important!

Grun is meant to have the 2 dots on top of it though

Grün is indeed green yep

Luft on the other hand is air
Red would be rot
