comment Was bedeuten “halb” und “scharf” bei Richtungsangaben?
Ah! Now I get it. 180° can very well be thought of as a straight line. To me the angle would be the angle at which to deviate from the straight line, so 0° would be straight ahead. Am I completely off? Should I rewrite my answer?

comment Why does “fliegen” not always happen in the air?
This explains why you use "Ballon fahren" and not "Ballon fliegen": it's not really rapid. As usual Wikipedia has a slightly different, more boring explanation ;-)

comment What is the German equivalent of the English “aka”?
Oh, sorry, I misunderstood. You probably meant what I wrote as '"alias" is usually short enough'.
