    "Women grow up to be exactly like their mothers. This is their tragedy. Men never do. This is theirs."

    ...54 translations later we get:

    "That's crazy as I lay this child."

    This is pretty lollerous. It might also be the source of every post CharlesBHoff ever contributed.

    Sing to the motherland, home of the free -> Freedom House does.

    The person who thought of the idea must be congratulated.

    "Looking up at the stars, I know quite well That, for all they care, I can go to hell, But on earth indifference is the least We have to dread from man or beast.

    Became:

    "Watch the stars, I know, all the interest, in exchange, but the indifference of the land should at least be afraid of humans and animals."

    This one's also cool:

    "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."

    Became:

    "Because they have committed a crime, for the glory of God." :-D

    EDIT:

    "Come now sir, that is rubbish. Green tea is for the foreign constitution, not for consumption by those with discerning, I mean, Gar no like green tea."

    Became:

    "Ah, sir, that's stupid. Green tea in the Constitution, and not through the main hole, the use of language, rather than green tea."

    Fucking awesome!

    One of my sister's favorite quotes is: "never make somebody your priority when you are merely their after thought."

    ...54 translations later we get:

    "If it is not important."

    One I said to a friend once when I was in a philosophical mood: "Stagnation in water, after all, leads to bacteria, rot, and decay; surely stagnation of the soul and of the psyche breeds the same."

    ...54 translations later we get:

    "Kill Bacteria in water Depletion and economic security."

    EDIT: "your mother was a hampster and your father smelled of elderberries"
    ...54 translations later we get:
    "Stan mix my children's parents, cloth."

    Curious. Zir has shown me this thing earlier today and I considered posting it here. You're stealing my thoughts, Grakelinbert Bates.

    Nonetheless, let's have some fun.

    "The Unity will bring about the master race. Master! Master! One able to survive, or even thrive, in the wasteland. As long as there are differences, we will tear ourselves apart fighting each other. We need one race. Race! Race! One goal. Goal! Goal! One people, to move forward to our destiny. Destiny."
    ...54 translations later we get:
    "Despite the Differences, war, speaking Residents and communities of the best players in a large group of people, he! Game! Purposes, "Wake up!" Up! For every business and sport."

    Also...

    "Morpheus. It's quite amusing. He thinks he's so much more than just a slug the Master recruited to head his Children of the Cathedral nonsense. Ah, well. He, too, will be dipped in the Vats and he'll probably die a horrible death... I hope."
    ...54 translations later we get:
    "Morfeus and other animals, the city of Presidential candidates Okay, not very scared of death, sex ... I hope."

    I have a lot of favourite quotes to check out. How exciting!

    EDIT:

    "Mutant Patron of Deviation"
    ...54 translations later we get:
    "Border Guard reported killed"

    Okay, that killed me. But then again...

    "Muro Lightning, Mutant Patron of Deviation"
    ...54 translations later we get:
    "Blue - Ray's first law to prevent March"

    "Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world. She took the midnight train to anywhere. Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit. He took the midnight train going anywhere."

    ...54 translations later we get:

    "But the world is women only. Do not miss the train from the south to the middle of the night, but children living in Detroit is better."

    But not until after this one popped up after five or six translations:

    DUTCH : Slechts een dorpsmeisje die alleen woont in de wereld. De Midnight Train is geen uitweg. Gewoon een stadsjongen, geboren in Zuid-Detroit verbetering. Midnight Meat Train overal.
    Back to ENGLISH : Only a village girl who lives alone in the world. The Midnight Train is no escape. Just a city boy, born in South Detroit improvement. Midnight Meat Train everywhere.

    My name (Arthgon) was still the same after 10. On the other hand, my initials of my name in IRL became 'investment'.

    So you're suggesting that I'm the Internet equivalent of Dr. Cox?

    Oh, and Dark Fool becomes "Minister in the Dark" after the max number of translations.

    Well, this translator isn't as 'bad' as I thought...

    Charonte transforms to Charon, Karon, and finally Caron... They're all alternative spellings depending on the region...

    "Pandas are the most evil animals in the whole world."

    "Large Objects, bad world."

    "Give me a blowjob or else I'll kill you."
    ...54 translations later we get:
    "Type or kill other."[/quote]
