    Ah, der olle Ulli. Nett… 😉

    Hope you don’t mind getting a few unsolicited but well-intended corrections from a German speaker:

    – Verhängis (fate/doom) is written with dots above the a (sounds like the e in “welcome”). I know it’s hard to write that with an english keyboard, so here’s the ASCII Code for it: Press and hold ALT and type “0228”.
    – The diploma should read “Polytechnikum” not Polytechnischen …

    I can’t read the rest since the writing is too small in this resolution, but I think there are more spelling errors – if you want, I can proofread it for you. As always: No harm meant! 😉

    Thanks for the offer Mad Jack. I’m sure I made mistakes. Here is the text.

    Ulli Verhangnis

    Doktor der Physik

    Thanks again.

    Hmmm, do you have the original English text for it too? Because the German text doesn’t really make much sense (I guess some words got literally lost in translation). Also: You don’t get a doctor’s degree in physics by just passing a course of studies – first you need to do research in a specialist field for about 3 to 7 years and then you have to produce a dissertation <span id=”result_box” class=”” lang=”en”>in which the research activities and their results <span class=””>are described.</span></span>

    Thus a real diploma would read more like this:

    or this:

    The easiest way around knowing the real wordage on a diploma is to declare that it’s honorary or on the way or that it’s a substitute for the real document, which was verified but documented lost in a well-known catastrophe. Preferably one caused by the recipient anyway. I love docs like that. Sigi looks ready to say: “Yo! I’m the product of the junk/Albus made me-the punk!/For us being homunc / ulus lays down the funk / so jus’ HIT IT!” [beat box through hidden extra mouth]

    –sorry. Nice work, man.

    Literally translated:

    Das Kollegium der
    polytechnischen Universität von Lichtenstein
    verleiht auf Vorschlag der Abschluss-Fakultät
    Ulli Verhängnis
    der seine Fähigkeit durch originäre Forschung
    in Physik bewiesen hat
    den Titel eines Doktor der Philosophie
    mit allen damit verbundenen Rechten und Privilegien.
    Unter dem Siegel der polytechnischen Universität von Lichtenstein
    an diesem elften Tag des Juni im Jahr neunzehnhundertzweiunzwanzig.

    Loosely translated (and imo more correct):

    Der Vorstand des
    Poyltechnikums Lichtenstein
    ernennt

    Ulli Verhängnis
    (insert birthdate here)

    aufgrund seiner originären Forschung
    auf dem Gebiet der Physik zum

    Doktor der Philosophie

    mit allen damit verbundenen Rechten und Privilegien.

    Lichtenstein, den 11. Juni 1922

    This is really well executed and quite beautiful.
