Lost in Translation Much?

It's that time of year, when the Agfa Acento greets me in the morning with a gripe that it took a chill in the night.

It doesn't seem to affect the performance of the machine, but besides the message telling me nothing because it uses the Metric System (that idiotic Esperanto of weights and measures, foist upon the world to deprive life of any flavor left in it after the nanny state and multinational corporations are done with it), the message was obviously written by someone who's English was as fluent as my Japanese. No doubt they fed a perfectly sensible warning into one of those free online translation sites.

Reminds me of When You Are Engulfed in Flames.
