So its off to Deutschland for this weeks biscuit of the week, for two very good reasons. The first being the small stock of German biscuits in the the NiceCupOfTeaAndASitDown biscuit bunker, thanks to Tom Winter's fabulous parcel from Hamburg. The second the hilarious German to English translations courtesy of Google. 'Kernig' which I'm sort of assuming is German for 'kernels' is translated to 'main header bits'. Imagine if in the future we all had wearable PCs that translated everything you said into German then back again via Google and then uttered it in a synthetic voice. That could make just buying a packet of Polos and a newspaper as challenging as negotiating the Middle East peace process. And talking of hot places such as the Middle East, Southern England is experiencing its hottest heat wave in recorded history right now, so if I'm rambling a bit blame the heat.
So all that universal translator nonsense in sci-fi shows, you know the one, where people from worlds that have never even met before stand there nattering on about how nice it is to live on their planet, and how they recently had their kitchen redecorated, and how good the local schools are and so on. Rubbish! The French who are our nearest neighbours and from whom large parts of modern English come from have words that have no English translation such as 'Terrior'. What is a universal translator going to do with that! Either it would have to skip those bits, or pass it on untranslated or maybe a take a long sort of stab at it. Either way the conversation would be more 'How long have you had those ____ growing from your head?' / 'How long have you had those gnnnnsshargvvv growing from your head?' / 'How long have you had those things that look like road kill in plastic bags with little flashing lights inside at least from where I'm standing they do, growing out of your head?'. To which the answer is probably 'We have to stand in this special sort of unpleasant smelling mud due to or radically different body chemistry, which is similar but not identical to that purple stuff Windowlene that you can't get any more, but people used to wipe it all over the windows of shops that were closing down'. Yes that would all be quite believable.
na, ob noch jemand außer mir diesen Thread kapiert?
Sind das nicht diese Tolkien-Kekse ?
äh, ich kenn die Kekse, aber der lange Erguß da oben schreckt mich grad ab
die hab ich auch schon mal gegessen, die sind lecker

EDIT: doch mir dämmerts langsam...noch mal lesen

Neeeeiiinnn.....der Name ist denen gaaanz zufällig eingefallen

Aber nicht vor den Büchern
