    What does "Mullgammler" means
    Ein Gammler is like a bum, a lay about, lazy person. I don't quite know what the Mull part is...I think it is meant to be Müll...but not sure.

    I see someone has just discovered some rude words in the dictionary. Well done.
    But nobody uses it.
    Gammler, yes, but I have never heard Müllgammler before.

    Does the genative plural add -n onto the end of everything, or is it just dative?
    Just dative. Genitive plural is the same as nominative plural: trotz dieser Ereignisse...

    I like that about German language. You can be quite inventive. There are loads of composite words in German and if you need a new one invent it, like Abwrackprämie, Paragraphendschungel,

    Na ja, das zeugt auch von einer gewissen Kreativität, oder? Eins meiner Lieblingswörter ist immer noch "Body-Bags", für diese Handtaschen, die während der späten 90er so beliebt waren:p:

    it is wäre. Sie wäre fett, or sie würde fett werden if she will become fat.

    When writing a summery, would I write "In kurtz: gibt es..." or "In kurtz: es gibt..." or are they both wrong?

    Yes... I'm not sure what you actually want to say, though. Nevertheless both are wrong.
    Do you want to say "in conclusion"? Then it'd be something like "Kurz gesagt", "Zusammenfassend kann man sagen" or "Abschließend ist noch zu sagen, dass...".

    Same as the "er" form: "würde ... sein", or, preferably, the Konjunktiv II form "wäre".
