Here is a random word for today. I read a little blurb about the Fallschirm.
der Fallschirm - parachute
der Schirm - umbrella, screen, shield
At first glance this word made me think of Fallout protection. Nuclear Fallout. A little dreary I know. I wasn't too far off with the protection aspect though. Fallschirm are used to save your life, but in a different kind of Fall-Out, like a fall, out of a plane!
It is also funny when you directly translated it, the fall shield or fall umbrella. Wait, is this what Mary Poppins used?
