Comment Re:They have a 100% accurate translation? (Score 1) 97

Quick and fast are easier to discriminate than "fast" and "fat".

Consider the following iterative algorithm...

"That is a fast car" - is translated to
That is a fat car *Context filter - strict vs slang - replace fat with phat*
*Context filter - apply ghetto style - replace "That" with "Dat"*
*Context filter - apply ghetto style - replace "is" with "be"*
*Context filter - apply ghetto style - replace "a" with "one"*
That be one phat car.

We'll probably see medical jargon appearing in our software now.

"Windows has detected a malignant usb program. The prognosis is that you have a 85% chance that your personal data will be on a Russian server in 10 minutes. Immediate curative treatment in the form of Knowledge Base #A345-BB321 is required. Press Yes to accept the DNR and proceed with the treatment."

Note that there will be no "Cancel" option.

[No, don't get me started on Trump. Please, everyone, vote 3rd party.]

Sure, great! Which third party do you prefer--the one that just dropped homeopathy from their platform this year and whose nominee flew to the wrong city today, or the one that had the Iron-Cross-tattooed candidate performing a striptease at the podium during their convention?

(The moral of the story is that third parties are a special, highly-distilled breed of terrible, but we happily give them a pass because we all know they're hopeless yutzes doomed to failure.)

Oh? Please tell me how a bunch of people doing the same speed creates a dangerous situation.

For the record I agree unless you're overtaking don't be in the lane.

Oh, that's an easy one.

When people who speed can't pass they get irrationally angry and start to do dangerous things, like tailgating, swerving, and suddenly accelerating/braking.

So you see, it's really your fault for making them SO DANGED ANGRY because they can't speed and pass people at that particular instant.
