Language Word/Meaning
English
0815 (Nullachtfunfzehn) : Boring, common, unoriginal, monotonous. Originally from the standard soldier's gun developed in 1908. Every soldier had it. Later (1915) that gun was reworked and enhanced. The name for that gun was 0815 by then. But it was still the standard gun. As it was something very common and nothing special Germans began to use that expression to describe boring "standard"- things.
