Oezi's German is as bad as his English, or worse. (I am native speaker!)
He made an indecent proposal to BillyB. His first sentence reads: "Are you thinking to have lust with me, or are you crazy?"
Definitely not a translation tool.

In fact, construction workers in the US make reasonably good money. Much better than Teachers in fact.

Everybody wants to be engineer, doctor, ... but not plumber. So there are not too many, they are always requested, and they make a lot of money.

So you can't generalize based in the SG situation, where guys from other countries come here to earn what is peanuts for SG but a big money for them


Yeh , its not Singapore/Dubai everywhere in the world.

Though I think the high crane operators get paid well no matter where they are working.

Are you kidding?

Thats more or less £1500 a month before tax , I reckon every single construction worker in the UK earns more than that.

I would hazard a guess that everywhere in Western Europe construction pays more than $3000(or equivalent) a month

Gimme your phone number, I'd loooove to call for a chat.

p.s. In Germany it is 'Want Chili or garlic sauce on that?'


(Go for garlic, the chili is as fiery and sweet as your mum's strawberry jam! (don't think the Germans get spicy))

What explicit lyrics? Let's take it as it is written, shall we? Your English lesson today is "What is the difference between a Question and a Statement (besides the obvious "?" mark).

Jaycee wrote:Do you have a moustache? And a sister who is number 3 prostitute in all Kazakstan?


He did not say "You have a moustache!" NOR did he say your sister is a prostitute. He asked you IF you have a sister.......

Is only a question. He hasn't called your or your sister (if you have one) anything. Yet.

So, again, your lack of English comprehension has again hoist you by your own petard!
