comment What is "to put things into public storage'' in German?
In addition: The correct wording is Selfstorage - but if you use it, you can't be sure everybody will understand it. This is a rather new business in Germany.

comment How to say web addresses and version numbers in German?
Most of the times I use only Windows acht eins. I use the version with Punkt only, if there could be a misunderstanding, e.g. if there is a Windows 81 (eighty-one).

comment Why is it “der Bikini”? Shouldn't the noun be feminine?
Another idea: In French it is 'le bikini' (also male). Maybe it is taken from there and the question is: Why is bikini male in French?

comment Why is it “der Bikini”? Shouldn't the noun be feminine?
Maybe, because it is a kind of Badeanzug (= der Badeanzug).

comment On the origin of “guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr” // Wie deutsch ist „guten Rutsch“?
Das guter Rutsch jiddischen Ursprungs ist, war mir nicht bewusst (mal wieder was gelernt. Ich ging bisher davon aus, es hat was mit der kalten Jahreszeit und dem Wunsch nicht auszurutschen zu tun hat). Ich nehme an, so geht es den meisten Deutschsprachigen. Da rutschen auch ein deutsches Wort ist, wird es auch als solches verwendet. D.h. die Verwendung ist - wie in der Frage geschrieben - wirklich eine verbale.
