    "dran glauben"

    there is one more phrase,that is difficult for me to understand...
    It reads...
    "der hier wird als erster dran glauben"
    The way i figure it,it means "this one here (this man) will be the first to die"...but i'm not really sure...
    Thanks in advance...

    "this one here (this man) will be the first to die"...

    Das ist genau die Aussage des Satzes.

    Depends on context - it can mean "to croak it" in the literal sense as well as "being the first" in a figurative meaning - i.e. if you have say a strawberry yoghurt and a vanilla yoghurt, the first of them to be eaten "muß als erster dran glauben" ;-)

    This depends heavily on the context. The term points out someone who will face something unpleasant, mostly work/task related, but it can mean "to die" also.
