why the Japanese are so bad at English

Matt Alt explains why this:

指定された暗証番号をお忘れの場合は、列車終着駅でお荷物の引渡しとなります。

becomes this…

When the set combination is forgotten, it becomes a delivery of the spare prick in the train terminal station.

I’d laugh if it wasn’t such a simple error. It’s also prominently displayed on the Narita Express for all of the visitors to Japan to read. Let’s wait and see how long it takes JR to fix this gaffe.

the vampire squid doesn’t feed on human flesh

Lewis is so funny and kudos to Bloomberg for running this:

Bashing Goldman Sachs Is Simply a Game for Fools: Michael Lewis

Rumor No. 5: Goldman Sachs is “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”

Those words are of course taken from a recent issue of Rolling Stone magazine and they are transparently false.

For starters, the vampire squid doesn’t feed on human flesh. Ergo, no vampire squid would ever wrap itself around the face of humanity, except by accident. And nothing that happens at Goldman Sachs — nothing that Goldman Sachs thinks, nothing that Goldman Sachs feels, nothing that Goldman Sachs does –ever happens by accident.

(Michael Lewis is a columnist for Bloomberg News and the author of “Liar’s Poker,” “Moneyball” and “The Blind Side,” soon to be a major motion picture. The opinions expressed are his own.)
