Reminds me of a Dilbert...

Dilbert: What makes your product better?
Salesguy: Well, our keyboard is so simple it only has one button, and we press it for you at the factory.
Dilbert: What happens when I press the button?
Salesguy: Woa, Woa, Woa, - I'm getting in over my head here.

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.)
