Wisdom for the Ages.....
In a continued effort to battle the twin evils of Theft and Devil Worship (aka speaking french), I have decided to provide a daily (i.e. when I get around to it) German lesson.
Er ist eine Person, mit der man Pferde stehlen kann.
Literally: He is a person with which you can steal horses.
Figuratively: He is a person who is up for anything.
That's all for today. And remember, while on the one hand you shouldn't take things to literally, you also should be aware of whether or not there have been a string of recent horse thefts before you tell the big suspicious looking guy that you are in fact a person with which one can steal horses.
