Just A Little One.

March 11, 2011 

So today I got a message from someone who'd friended me, in a different language. I found Google translate, which detected the language as Dutch and translated the message as an invitation to get acquainted. Okay, that's all good...so I wrote a little message back, saying that sorry, I only speak English,  I do like to make friends, but won't go for anything sexual. Before I sent the message, I went back to Google translate and translated my message into Dutch, then back into English, just to see if it came back right.

Well, my last sentence (after explaining that I'm not interested in anything sexual), was "I do like to make friends though." However, it came back as "I like doing all friends."

Thanks so much Google, for helping get the point across!   :S

(I changed the message to just a note that I speak only English and a brief welcome to EP before I sent it, lol.)

Heehee, it's sometimes fun to translate things (like random Tweets and stuff) from other languages, just to see the weird things that come out. :p
