Well this lesson escalated quickly

If you're curious, this is likely a reference to a relatively well known danish movie from the 90s

Dachshunds taste like hotdogs.

I don't think they eat their own pets...

I Danmark, de spiser deres husdyr!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/klisterable

swap spiser and de, remove the comma, and it's correct

Seriously: Does this sentence imply that the subject tried and failed, or should it be translated as "would" instead?

"I would not be able".
