comment Meaning of “Augen unter Null”
@optim1st I would say this would be a little bit far-fetched, as everything else revolves around the "sea" topic. You can say "kalter Blick", "kalte Augen" etc directly, "Augen unter null" would be a very encrypted version to express this thought.

comment Meaning of “Augen unter Null”
@optim1st At least the "abgetaucht" supports this interpretation. But if you suggest that there are better metaphors, I'm with you.

The last example could use "obwohl" as well: "Obwohl ich mich an seinen Geburtstag erinnerte, rief ich ihn nicht an."
