Ferstunkener Wind

I was about to ridicule a friend on his blog for his crazy ideas concerning Gaia, the Earth goddess. But first I had a chore to do. I needed to repair some ripped screening caused by my dog attacking a squirrel. Out I went with my trusty aerosol can of contact cement. As soon as I masked the area off and got on my rubber gloves, the wind whipped up. Ferstunkener wind! Then I realized that the wind blows anytime I want to do spraying!
Aha! Absolute scientific proof that Gaia exists and doesn't like aerosols.

Stinky or verstunkener "Hone"

I hate it when people on TV say they "honed in on" something or another when they "homed in on" something. One can "hone" or "sharpen" one's skills or "hone" or "sharpen" a blade. Homing in is what a guided missile does on a target.
