    Fun "game" when you are bored.

    This is just something I like to do when I'm bored. I use a translator, and type something into the translator. I translate from one language to another, then from that to another, from that to another, and so on, and finally back to english. The final result is usually very humorous!

    Example: ( using www.promt.ru )

    Original

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth.

    English --> German --> Russian

    I just felt I would post the Russian intermediate, seeing as how this is a Russian forum.

    2 улицы отступали в желтой древесине, и жаль с меня не мог путешествовать обоих и быть путешественником, долго я стоял и он смотрел вниз, если я мог к тому, где это сгибалось в подлеске.

    Russian --> French --> Spanish --> English

    Final

    2 streets were stepping back in the yellow forest, and we do not feel to me two could not travel and be the traveler, a lot of time I was he was looking below, if he could towards, where this was folded in the weeds.

    LOL. That was fun. I would like to see some of your own!

    Thank you for your time.

    Since I'm listening to Interpol's "Evil" right now, that's what I will use. Hmm, let's go English -> Spanish -> Russian -> English. (using IM Translator, which is also powered by the Prompt engine)

    It's the smiling on the package, it's the faces in the sand. It's the thought that holds you upwards, embracing you with two hands. Right will take you places, yeah, maybe to the beach.

    Esto es la sonrisa en el paquete, esto es las caras en la arena. Esto es el pensamiento que le sostiene hacia arriba, abraz
    "Alright, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me, so let's just figure this out and I'll get back to killing you with beer."

    English to Russian to English.

    I have a pen.
    Я имею ручку.
    I have the handle.

    I like him.
    Я люблю его.
    I love it.

    I am bored.
    Мне надоедают.
    To me bother.

    Grief befalls me.
    Горе случается со мной.
    To mountain happens with me.

    Peace to the world.
    Мир к миру.
    The world to the world.

    I cannot go home.
    Я не могу пойти домой.
    I cannot go home.
    Perfect!


    Your siblings are stupid and weird.
    Ваши родные братья являются глупыми и сверхъестественными.
    Your native brothers are silly and supernatural.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I'm toying with a game like this one sometimes. Take a German text and the English-Russian translator. The simplest German words like bin, gut, etc become so funny when translated like english words
