Ich würde sagen du hast es verstanden thewaiter...
Eines der Probleme die es gibt wenn man mich verstehen will ist, das mich oft sogar meine Mitmenschen hier in Deutschland nicht verstehen. Das liegt aber hauptsächlich daran das ich dazu neige mist zu reden.

Interestingly, I find in some ways it's easier to understand someone who is not speaking your first language than to understand someone who is. You don't pick up the details, true, but they also don't get in the way.

Heh, true. That's why you always want to be charming in your first language. Second languages are only for impressing girls, never for proper wooing.

If it's spelled correctly, dictionary.com's translator will translate entire phrases from (take your pick of about 8 languages) to English and back.

AHAHAHAHAHA!

Oh wait you're serious?

Here is what the first post looked like when translated from German to English:

Jo I white the world will not hate me for it and nevertheless has I no support English to write, at least now. I am again and look me over. Until then .

Now imagine if he was writting something beyond a generic "I'm lazy'

Here's the post again, but this time throwing in Spanish:

The target of Jo I who the world will not hate to me for him and nevertheless who does not have I no English of the aid to write, at least now. I am again and I watch myself above. Until then

And finally, let's throw in Japanese:

As for England or help me bitterly hatred of first object at least the atmosphere or it is not to that, whether or not or several of the world we should write. With this two times, it is because it is considered. In time


Damn, I kind of like that. Kind of reminds me of e. e. cummings. But, yeah, when translating passages be ready for some interesting misunderstandings.

And even aside from that, translating the full sentence spoils the whole fun for me.

I understood all that german and stuff. But everybody should just speak English. It is after all an American webcomic and most people here are American or English.

Yay, the multilingual thread of doom.

Das kann noch verdammt anstrengend werden.
