    Yeah it is both "really cool" and "horny". So a phrase like "Sie ist geil" can be taken two ways.

    Nice. Why doesn't English have anything like that ? Instead we have to be boring and confuse people with how many to/two/too's we have.

    The best laughs are to be had with foreigners speaking German. If someone says "Ich bin kalt" rather than "Mir ist kalt" (lit. "to me is cold") then it means they are cold-hearted. Similarly "heiß" means hot in the sexual way, and "warm" means "queer".

    French has similar

    J'ai chaud ==> I'm hot
    Je suis chaud ==> I'm horny

    J'ai froid ==> I'm cold
    Je suis froid ==> I'm frigid

    J'ai plein ==> I'm full
    Je suis plein ==> I'm pregnant

    Yeah i knew the first two, but never knew that warm was gay. I think Ich bin spaet can mean "i am late" or I am pregnant, hence i always stay with "ich hab Verspaetung"

    Ich bin Jungfrau - I am a Virgo (starsign) OR I'm a virgin, if i'm not mistaken.

    I'm not one to talk though. I currently make lots of "German" mistakes in my English. Like I suggested to my sister that she "control the temperature of her bath" (I meant "check").

    Kind of makes sense if you think about it.

    "I'm late" can mean "I am pregnant" in English too, can't it? Or at least, have not had period and so suspect pregnancy.

    Exactly. Its only a phrase used when pregnancy is suspected, people will say they are pregnant, or expecting once they have it confirmed.
