Was essen wir heute Abend?

Will the police come driving in the reverse gear if you dial 211?
Please correct my mistakes!

Kommt die Polizei im Rückwärtsgang angefahren, wenn man 211 anruft?

(In Deutschland ist übrigens die eigentliche Rufnummer für die Polizei 110 und die für Feuerwehr und Rettungswagen 112 -- das heißt, eigentlich müsste man in einem deutschen Kontext von "011" sprechen ;) )

Oh, the sky is green and yellow,
for you painted it that way -
just stay calm and just stay mellow,
as dark night turns into day.

Den hellen Himmel hast du gestrichen
Bis er gelb und grün ausstrahlt.
Sogleich ist die Nacht dem Tag ausg'wichen
Entspanne dich, mach' kurz Halt!

Kann man diesen Satz ohne größere Schwierigkeiten übersetzen?

Some people are so hellbent on committing suicide that they will do it even if it kills them.

Manche Leute sind so auf den Selbstmord versessen, dass sie den begehen, wenn auch der sie tötet.

First he said he hadn't been there. Then he assured us that he had but at a different time. How long will this farce last for Christ's sake? That's not a kind of behaviour you would expect from an adult.

Zuerst sagte er, nicht hier gewesen zu sein. Dann versicherte er uns, daß er es war, aber zu einer anderen Zeit. Wie lange wird dieses Affentheater andauern, um Gottes Willen? Das ist nicht die Art Benehmen, die man von einem Erwachsenen erwartet.

Nun da die meisten meiner Freunde weggezogen sind, ist diese Stadt nicht mehr wie zuvor.

Of all the things I'll never live long enough to learn, this bothers me the least.

Ich habe den Brief ins Englische übersetzen lassen.

It's your being there and having made no motion to stand up for me that made it all the worse.

I asked him if I could borrow his car like we had agreed.

Ich habe ihn gefragt, ob ich sein Auto ausleihen darf, wie wir vereinbart hatten.

I haven't been able to get a good night's sleep ever since the new neighbours moved in.

Ich kann mich nicht mehr ausschlafen, seitdem die neuen Nachbarn eingezogen sind.

Ich muss diesen Korb nicht überall mit mir herumtragen, wenn ich nicht will.

That is the most disgusting bug I've ever seen.
