comment Polite ways to swear when something went completely wrong?
I currently like "huch" (oops) and "um himmels Willen" (heavens! or for heaven's sake, depending on the accentuation) Both are very polite indeed (in my estimation)

How rude are these really? I think you're massively overestimating them. But then I'm not from the south.

comment How is the prefix “uber-” differently used in German vs. English?
Nietzsche's word Übermensch was also used by the Nazis in their rhetoric about the Herrenrasse (the master race). Further, the opposite term, Untermensch, was used in eugenics. So to the non-native speakers: be very careful when using it. It does have a very dark connotation outside of philosophical circles.

@cos I've never heard of that. Are you thinking of "frech" (cheeky)?

Your question is slightly open-ended. Could you make it more clear?

comment Wie viele sind “ein paar”?
+1, But just in case: this obviously doesn't a apply to things that come in pairs. "Ein Paar Handschuhe" always means two of them.

Well, no... or only if you have a really nice smile. You're quite right in assuming that there is no comparable equivalent to 'silly'
