Actual Conversation

Real conversation at my house.

S: Hey, you remember when you were trying to download and install that new software the other night? You know... the thing that never worked?
N: Yeah... did you get it to work finally?
S: Nah, you got the wrong stuff. What you had downloaded was the English version.
N: So what?
S: The whole computer is in German, the operating system and all software... you put an English speaker into the midst and confused it all. I mean sure, the German operating system might have been able to pull out some usable English, but you know damn good and well that the English version had no idea how to interact with the German.
N: No wonder it didn't work, eh?

Now for a trip down memory lane. This artist has used mostly food and made a stop action video of the death of the characters on classic video games like Centipede, Space Invaders and Frogger. The artist requests that these videos not be embedded so click here or on the image to go to his site. " Also don't miss Pes's version of Roof Sex... I get hot just watching it!

Your blog consistently reminds me that there are a few cross-cultural challenges bigger than a redneck and a Russian in the same house! :-D
