@OP Sounds like you've found the English answer to your question. Please mark it as answered, and let us know if you think of the German equivalent!

comment You quench your thirst. What do you do with your hunger?
@Polynomial Agreed. I've never once heard "sate" used in common conversation. "Satiate" is much more common.

comment Is there a secular, non vulgar alternative to “for heaven's sake”?
@augurar Yep. Just because you can use two phrases in the same place in a sentence doesn't mean they have the same meaning. Besides, you had to create an entirely new sentence there, so it really is not synonymous at all.

comment Why is “distro”, rather than “distri”, short for “distribution” in Linux world?
@Izkata - Agreed. Similarly, I've heard "presentation" abbreviated to "preso", though that's one case where even the "o" sounds somewhat unnatural to my ear.

"Good grief" doesn't really fit here. Try it in either of the OP's examples: "C'mon, it's just a scratch for X's sake!" -- Where does "good grief" fit here?
