English and German are cousins. If you can speak one, the other comes easy.

The chief difference is that English is almost entirely Subject-Verb-Object and occasionally Object-Subject-Verb in future tense.

While German is also mostly SVO, it has a lot more OSV and also throws in OVS to confuse people who don't pay attention.

I showed this thread to my friend who speaks German.

She was insulted by the poor grammer. Her exact words: "I spent ages learning proper grammer and these people just trashed over it".

Also, she questioned shianova's post with "Is he trying to say he likes playing with himself?"

Even an internet translator agrees with your friend.
