I just encountered this and it was so bad, I thought of you all and immediately had to log on and share it :



I once paid £20 for tickets to a Prince concert, but I partied like it was £19.99!



Don't shoot the messenger!

"You took the words right out of my mouth!"

Along those lines...

When I was much younger the biblical phrase:

"The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak"

had a 180 degree opposite meaning of what it does now.!! (another lament some might attribute to Rich Hawley??)

I heard a similar one during my school days (or was that daze?):

Teacher: Sing a song with the words 'analyze' and 'anatomy.'

Student: My analyze over the ocean,
My analyze over the sea,
My analyze over the ocean.
Oh, bring back my anatomy.

You know the one about how English to Russian machine translation turned out long ago?

"The prototypical example is probably this Biblical sentence: “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” The story goes that this was translated into Russian and then translated back into English as “The whiskey is strong, but the meat is rotten.”

Stinguys,

Well, yes, hardware/software deficiencies/failure... that is one very plausible explanation of the translation failure... however...some would say the more likely cause :

Seems some Russians should drink less and maybe read the bible more often!!!

So... Computer may have been spot on!!!! Back then in the 1990's...
