I know you hate interactivity
( published 22nd May 2002 )

Hi All,

Here a little game I've been thinking about for months: it it just meant to show you if you are multilingual or talented with languages. I will write the same sentence in 5 languages, and you have to see if you recognise any of them ( apart from English ). Be honest, count how many languages you would have truthfully been able to translate.

Good Luck

The weather is nice, I take my bicycle and I go out to to breathe the fresh air of the countryside wondering if those clouds coming from the right will move on or bring worse conditions.

Il fait beau, je prends mon velo et je sors dans la campagne parce qu'ils me pompent l'air en me demandant si quelqu'un est capable de traduire la connerie que j'ai placee ci-dessus.

Das Wetter ist schoen, ich nehme mein Fahrrad und wandere ins Gruene um in Ruhe eine zu sniffen, und ich frage mich ob irgendjemand eigentlich soweit kommt und dies hier liest.

O tempo esta bom, eu levar a minha bicicleta deves estar a brincar eu so vou de carro aposto que estes rosbifes nao patavinam nada do que eu estou aqui a escrever.

Also ausser den Deitschen froen ech mech elo ween nach hei dei geringste Chance huet iergend eppes hei ze verstoen duerfir fennt een och souvill Letzebuerger am Ausland dei sou hart schwaetzen well se mengen et versteet keen sie.

Grandma and Grandpa were watching a healing service on TV.
The evangelist called to all who wanted to be healed to go to their TV set, place one hand on the TV and the other hand on the body part where they wanted to be healed.
Grandma got up and slowly hobbled to the TV, placed her right hand on the set and her left hand on her arthritic shoulder that was causing her to have great pain.
Then Grandpa got up, went to the TV, placed his right hand on the set and his left hand on his crotch.
Grandma scowled at him and said, "I guess you just don't get it. The purpose of doing this is to heal the sick, not to raise the dead."
