"You're a poo-poo head!"..."No, you're a poo-poo head" - Sticky for handbag swinging

What are you ranting on about, GOB? The only "benefits" I get are those available to other pensioners in the UK. I get £200 a year from the "Warm Homes Scheme" and a further £160 to pay for leccy. I'm not entitled to any pension in this country and neither do I get housing benefit because my wife and I earn too much. That was all started by some shit-dribbler (I can't mind who it was) as another thing to throw at me, but you're only too happy to believe it. Talk about being gullible!

MsG

No Stasi pension scheme then?

That because he earns over £300k /year as a translator.

Rates for translators are about £25 per hour, or £30 if you have specialist technical skills.

Assuming that Bogsy earns £30 per hour, that's 10,000 hours; as there are only 8760 hours in a year, that's 1.14 years work in a year or an extra 1239 hours that he's fitted into a year.

An average working year, 8 hours/day, 5 days/week, 47 weeks/year is 1880 hours, say 2,000 hours with a bit of overtime.

So Drugsy manages to fit 5 years work into a year. Translators don't get paid £150/h. Only barristers get that sort of money.

He couldn't be lying could he?

Quite right that Larry O’Liar gets no housing benefit for his hovel of multiple occupation Hyson Green Luxury Penthouse

He is on the best part of £500k (gross) p.a. (that we know of) with at least 60% coming from his global translation services and the rest from his art restoration business plus his art and book sales. Add his council architecture committee member‘s retainer and his NHS Covid Management Consultancy fees and stuff and his wealth becomes apparent.

Needless to say, his exceptionally pure heroin business is off the books and his wife only exists in his imagination for tax purposes.

All true because Bugsy told us how he put his kids through private schools on the back of his vast income. All those believing a word of it, one step forward...

Honestly, it's like watching an Octopus flailing in it's death throes....
It's just lies denying the earlier lies with more lies piled on top - face it @DaManBugs you have no way to turn to redeem yourself, it's time to fall on your pork sword chipolata - unless you can tell us which of your lies are lies?
TBH, it might be better just to give us a percentage, we haven't got another fifteen years, well, we have, I doubt you have though :thumleft:

You quite obviously have little to no idea how the translation industry works, bollock-brain. A translator is expected on average to get through about 1,200 words per eight-hour day. However, I can do 5,000 words per day. I get paid £75 per 1,000 words.

I also do a lot of proofreading. On average, a proofreader is expected to get through about 16,000 words of a bilingual text in a normal eight-hour day. I can do 35,000 words in the same time. I get paid £35 per hour for proofreading. Now work out yourself how much I *could* earn if I worked all the hours god sends. Only I don't do that. I work about 16 hours per week and easily earn enough for my basic needs.

It's not incomprehensible to the Swiss. But reading Swiss newspapers and magazines is, as you state, quite easy. It's also why the Swiss don't call it "Hochdeutsch", but rather "Schriftdeutsch". Even then, however, you'll find major differences. For instance, "lassen" (hören), "segeln" (laufen), "Velo" (Fahrrad), "Töff" (Motorrad), "Hegel" (Messer), "Hag" (Hecke), "Harass" (Kiste), "gumpen" (springen), "parkieren" (parken), "Obers" (Sahne), "Pneus" (Reifen), "all bott" (immer wieder, wiederholt) just to name a very few.

Is there a massive need for Swiss German Translation Bugsy? A 300k a year type job on offer?
Or is "Swiss German" now going to be your standard excuse when native German speakers point out your mistakes with the language?

Bugsy you "could" earn money if you were any good, but according to the real German speakers you are not.

But just to examine your 300k claim.
If you earned 35 quid an hour for 16 hours a day for 365 days a year it works out at 215k.

Also if you could actually earn even a quarter of that money why do you live in a shitty little hovel?

Considering your proud boast that you'd spent far more than half your life in Germany, yet you've no idea of the language, maybe you shouldn't be the one banging on about speaking and writing German, spackerman.

However, you're still up there as the only ARRSEr who can start an argument with himself - and lose!:cool:

The difference is Bugsy I don't pretend to understand German so well that I could earn 300k a year.

Its all about the attention seeking isn't Bugsy, brought on by the abuse you suffered at the hands of your father.
