Our German readers might like to nip out today and grab a copy of this week's Die Zeit, which has a handy guide on how to make the ultimate paper plane. Paper aircraft instructions in this week's Die Zeit We're obliged to Thorsten Winterer for whipping out his camera this morning to record part of Die Zeit's comprehensive …
>In 2010, British scientists
Who else laughed?
Oi - watch it...
me for sure
I'm still laughing.
Although there's no German equivalent to boffin, and so it might have been a valid translation, the article appeared in Die Zeit, not Bild, and so Wissenschaftler must unfortunately be translated as scientists. (but reading it made me smile...)
No German equivalent to boffin?
Yep, I had to have a bit of a chuckle at that. No offense meant, Lester, but you guys are not scientists. More like drunk reporters having a larf (Ang on, lads, we could make a paper aeroplane and send it into space! That'd be so cool! So who's round is it?)

I suppose it makes a change from "lesbian lifestyle magazine" as used by the Indy a couple of years ago.

Will LOHAN be equipped with a "Kamera"?
And will it be called "LOHAN Behold"?
At least we now know what the Playmanout is called.

I think that britische Forscher might be more closely translated as “British researchers” (Forschung is research; Wissenschaft is science).
Paper Plane Post?
took the Zeit (time) some time to receive the news
of El Reg´s endevour.
Seems they used paperplanes to get the message across the Channel.
The logo on the wing looks more like a swan than a vulture. Does that make Lohan an ugly duckling?
