Mechanical engineers and pilots might cringe when they read what I've written here about flying. I'm once again pushing the envelop by trying to deal with the subject of technical English. I don't know if letting you know you can get sucked down a airplane toilet is really a piece of technical English or just exposing a myth about what is technically possible. Either way, read, laugh and maybe learn a new word. I'm going to try to include podcasts in case you just want to listen.
I hope you've enjoyed this week of Bauenglish. See you next week!

To be "in a fix" means that you don't have an answer to a problem. This happens to me a lot. It's as if life is a long addition problem, and I always forget to carry the one. I accept my challenges and maybe one day they will add up to a special bus pass. Tech lite is very light on the real mechanics of machines. It's me trying to get my head around German engineering! Germans can follow directions. Americans are more likely to be a MacGyver, and create something new, like using bread ties for shower curtain rings.
Troubleshooting answers: 1. experiencing 2. try 3. repairman 4. warranty 5. funny
