    The German phrase Die reinste Freude ist die Schadenfreude roughly as "the purest joy comes when we view the misfortune of others."

    There is no translation that expresses the real meaning of Schadenfreude. Some dictionaries mention “mischievousness” and “malicious joy” as the English equivalent, but real German Schadenfreude is more than that. It means really taking delight in another’s misfortune. So every German child knows the meaning of “Die reinste Freude ist die Schadenfreude” – the purest joy is gloating. “Schaden” means damage and “Freude” means joy.

    Es geht um die Wurst

    Wenn die USA Europa spielen und umgekehrt: Skurrile Fotos zu einem charmanten Phänomen zeigen, dass die Verbindung zwischen den Kontinenten einem verstörenden US-Präsidenten trotzt.

    Von Stefan Fischer

    Die USA und Europa standen einander schon näher als derzeit. Dennoch sind die Bande natürlich so fest, dass ein verstörender amerikanischer Präsident sie nicht durchtrennen kann.

    It's about the sausage

    When the US plays Europe and vice versa: Whimsical photos show a charming phenomenon that the connection between the continents defies a disturbing US president.

    By Stefan Fischer

    The US and Europe were closer to each other than they are now. Still, the gang is so solid that a disturbing American president can not cut it.
