That's not as realistic as my situation.

Jup, totally legit!
What a charming word, right? :)
Most people just call it die Pille, though.

According to leo.org which is a better German translator, it is legit but you can also say die Pille but the one in reddit is wrong grammatically since it doesn't end with an "n" for the plural.

 

Damn, TYG beat me by 7 seconds.

What does die mean in German? Does it mean 'the' or an equivalent?

Yeah that would be "the" in English.
Just like der, den and das.

Have one of these:

 

That is the Großkreuz.
The highest order a person can get awarded with here in Germany. Only two people got one so far :P
 


Best ED ever.

I can haz?

 

Looking it up, it seems the only other highest honour awarded was to Goring, president of the Reichstag, but that guy isn't alive anymore so I guess he doesn't count

Göring was a Nazi so he doesn't count.

What is with the 'iron cross' though? It's a symbol that has lasted, and become the primary military symbol of Germany for the last 100+ years and is still in use today. 

 

What is the association of the German populace with it today? Is it positive or negative, is there nationalism with it? Or has it been reduced to one of just a regal symbol without much 'power' in it.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balkenkreuz

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Cross

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundeswehr

 

It seems the new German military and tradition uses a mix between the Balkenkreuz and the Iron Cross
