There’s more to Gender than Genitalia

December 2nd, 2011

Famous Film Quotes – Translated

May 12th, 2011

Have you ever bought flat-pack furniture, or the latest high-tech electrical gadget, and had problems understanding the accompanying pamphlet that has been translated into English?

They are sometimes full of instruction like:
“Maintain the pressing of the button and engage the option presenting A”

What they really mean is simply:
“Keep the button pressed and select option A”

Well, we wondered how some famous quotes from the movies might turn out under similar treatment. So we took our favourite translation package and subjected some of the most often quoted film sayings to its whims. First we translated the quotes out of English and then back again.

Here are the, sometimes unfathomable, results. Can you guess the original quote they are taken from – do not fret, the answers are listed below.

Skin Health Care Whilst In The Garden

Skin Care In The Garden – Why You Need Derma Shield

If you are a keen gardener, you will know how inspiring it is to be outside cultivating your land and watching plants mature. Spending time outdoors is wonderful for your physical and mental health but whilst you are reaping these rewards, you may not notice the incremental damage being done to your skin.

Every garden poses a range of hidden threats to healthy skin, causing it to dry out and lose flexibility. Differing pH levels in soil, plant saps and chemicals in common pesticides can all cause irritation, accelerating the damage. Dry hands are not only a nuisance; brittle skin often starts to split, allowing bacteria to enter. Read the rest of this entry »

February 11th, 2011

Hello world!

Have you ever seen the film Good morning Vietnam? There’s the bit where Robin Williams sits in front of the microphone and it looks as if he is going to freeze. Obviously he doesn’t but I am feeling a little bit like the character in the film must have felt.
