Babelfish

My favorite toy now is CNN Pipeline - as the TV is now 100 feet and two rooms away from my computer. With multiple feeds, it shows me how f***ed up the world actually is.

For example, I just got to see Lebanese TV cover Prime Minister Olmert's speech on the cease-fire. It is translated into Arabic...from English...from Hebrew.

Run any sentence through Babelfish and translate each result into a different language a few times. It's not pretty.

That's probably why Israelis and Arabs literally don't understand each other.
