Contrary to what many believe...

I actually hate the sound of German (in my opinion, it's even worse than Dutch), but I can understand it perfectly and speak it fairly well. Not because I studied it (well, I did, in high school),...

"Schmeißen" means "throw" in this context. Or even better: fling. "Fliegt" doesn't mean "flies" when you translate it in this context, but "will be kicked out". I don't know, it's weird to translate...
