This is part of a certain famous soliloquy from Shakespeare's Hamlet: "To be, or not to be? That is the question. Whether tis' nobler in the mind to face the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them."

This is Bad Translator's (by way of Bing) result: "If you don't know how to use it? This is the problem with large objects, clothing, equipment, snacks. There is a problem."

Following Fushigisaur's idea, 'A landslide has occurred' can mean:

(My cynical comments are on the right)

  • Bring home                                     Hey mum, I brought a landslide back for you from scho- *rumble*
  • Display
  • -Is achieved                                    ACHIEVEMENT GET: A landslide has occurred.
  • This is a landslide victory               :o I have no idea how it got this one...
  • This is                                             THIS...  IS...  ... ... ... *no more text*
  • Reject (and)                                    You just got REJECT AND!
  • Steamboat                                      What...?
  • Of the period                                  ...So I had a different landslide style in the 1800's as opposed to now?
  • Glissement                                    
  • They build a cement smile              This is one of my favourites.
  • When it is rolled                              A landslide has been rolled out.... Yeah, uh NO.
  • *
  • On the platform                             
  • Avalanches occur
  • Pigs                                                What the... I don't get this. How, what, where and why. :o
  • Compensation
  • The avalanche
  • Avalanche
  • The flow of water                           
  • The chill                                           Um.... Ok. *backs away*
  • Glissement, born                              D8
  • Prevent the                                      That's what reinforcing is for! :D
  • In addition                                        This is only slightly better than 'Pigs'
  • When she fell                                   *steals jamesster's avatar*
  • To see the victory
  • Water supply and electricity             Somehow Haiatian Creole got 'An Avalanche' to 'Electricity Water;... and it all went downhill...
  • This is cotton
  • Do you want to allow this to happen         That's what F6 is for. :P
  • Discount                                           Two landslides for the price of one!
  • Don't
  • Lou                                                   Something got screwed up...

 

 

You know what? I think I could make some pretty good sentences out of these... :P

 

Meh, I can't be bothered doing the proof any more... Unless it's hilarious.

Proof is here: (Note: Proof of 'display' has been lost)

"Stone flooring solutions"     After all, this is what RR is all about.  :thumbsup:

 

"Search for Barbie"     O_O NOPE

 

"Presidential candidates hanging."     Wait what?  :S

 

"LEGO rock Raiders plate washing"     When the mission is over, someone has to do the dishes.  :lol:

 

"Save only the Raiders."

 

"When you contribute to a refinement of the offense?"
