Lost In Translation

November 19, 2008 Leave a comment

In the Swansea district of Morriston, residents lives were being made a misery by HGV lorries taking deliveries to a local supermarket. Swansea Council obligingly agreed to do something about it and commissioned a road sign.

Council officials agreed on the wording then, as all official signs in Wales have to be bilingual, emailed a translator, who responded with commendable speed. A few weeks later, council workers installed the new road sign:

Unfortunately, the Welsh text reads ‘I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated.’

Best Obama Quote

November 5, 2008 1 comment

From Newsweek

The debates unnerved both candidates. When he was preparing for them during the Democratic primaries, Obama was recorded saying, “I don’t consider this to be a good format for me, which makes me more cautious. I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, ‘You know, this is a stupid question, but let me … answer it.’ So when Brian Williams is asking me about what’s a personal thing that you’ve done [that’s green], and I say, you know, ‘Well, I planted a bunch of trees.’ And he says, ‘I’m talking about personal.’ What I’m thinking in my head is, ‘Well, the truth is, Brian, we can’t solve global warming because I f—ing changed light bulbs in my house. It’s because of something collective’.”
