Junkrat’s German voice lines translated

“My mom always told me not to play with matches”

“Holy Shit!”

“Watch out, oncoming traffic!“ (When enemy Junkrat uses ult)

“Just quickly powder my little nose and continue.“ (after respawning)

“Brrr. I’m freezing my nose off when I look at you.“

“Hold it! Stop! This point belongs to me!”

told you it was stupid

Some interesting and unnecessary facts about Oscar Wilde that literally no one asked for

His father was queen Victoria ’s private eye doctor

When his mother was pregnant with him she was so sure that she was expecting a girl so when Oscar was born she dressed him in girl clothes until he was three

He had a two year younger sister who died when she was 10. He carried a lock of her hair with him for the rest of his life

He hated math and science as a kid

When in school he wasn’t very popular. Instead of playing and fighting with the other boys he would rather admire the flowers

His favourite flowers were sunflowers btw

He loved to dress up

He was over 190 cm tall and people were always surprised by his height when they met him

He had grey blue eyes

He smoked a lot

When he was at home working he would
always wear a white bathrobe inspired by Honoré de Balzac

He was fluent in Greek and adored the Greek culture

When he went to America he thought that the mine workers were the only ones who dressed well

He liked the idea of anarchism

He cried when he had to cut off his hair in jail

His last words were “either the wallpaper goes or I do”

It is a frequently cited fact that English has two sets of words for farm animals and their corresponding meats. The living animals are expressed with words of Germanic origin–calf (German ‘Kalb’), swine (G. 'Schwein’), and ox (G. 'Ochse’)–because the servants who guarded them were the conquered Anglo-Saxons. The names of the meats are of Romance origin–veal (French 'veau’), pork (F. 'porc’) and beef (F. 'boeuf’)–because those who enjoyed them were the conquering Norman masters.
