Unknown Language

Dec 28, 2010

For the Philip K. Dick fans, I threw three quotes (and a pizza recipe) into Google Translator, translate the text into 10 languages (English --> German --> Greek --> French --> Hebrew --> Albanian --> Irish --> Estonian --> Japanese --> Russian --> Bulgarian --> English) and here's the juicy result:

Original Text:

First of all, why not let people differ about their answers to the great mysteries of the Universe? Let each seek one's own way to the highest, to one's own sense of supreme loyalty in life, one's ideal of life. Let each philosophy, each world-view bring forth its truth and beauty to a larger perspective, that people may grow in vision, stature and dedication.

Second of all, all biologic phenomena act to adjust: there are no biologic actions other than adjustments. Adjustment is another name for Equilibrium. Equilibrium is the Universal, or that which has nothing external to derange it.
And last, that is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.

Crusty Pizza Dough (see recipe below) or any unbaked, low fat, pizza shell
1 16-oz. Can re-fried beans
2 tsp. Fajita seasoning
6 slices fat free cheese singles, sharp cheddar flavor
1 to 2 c. Bottled chunky salsa
2 scallions with tops, sliced
1 c. Lettuce, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 c. Nonfat sour cream

Make pizza dough. Bake for 3 minutes in a 400 F oven. Remove from oven and top in this order: cheese singles; re-fried beans; fajita seasoning. Return to oven and bake until pizza crust turns light brown and is baked. Remove from oven and cut into 8 slices. Place lettuce, salsa, jalapeno, scallions and sour cream out in bowls for everyone to choose their own topping. Serve warm.

Bon Appetit

Juicy Result: 

First, people give different answers to the great mysteries of the universe, how, why? Better life for our ultimate perfection, and everyone wants to believe in their own way. Their philosophy in the wider context of truth and beauty, people with height, vision, let's growing commitment to creating a presentation.

Second, biological phenomena act to adjust: biological behavior is not appropriate. Compliance is another name for balance. Universal balance, or has something to prevent it.

Eventually, he died, not eternal lie, you die as a result of hundreds of strange.

The Titan who didn't know when to stop

Dec 27, 2010

Titan Prometheus loved humans and humankind. But why did a supreme being show so much love to a trivial race such as humans? Maybe it's because in some version of the myth (before 4BC) he was the maker of the human race.

Prometheus, mysteriously created a bond with the humans by giving to them every skill, from arithmetic to navigation to medicine to prophecy. But he didn't stop there. If he did stop there, nobody would judge his generosity.

His greatest gift to mankind was fire.

He went up to mount Olympus, Kingdom of Gods, stole a glowing ember from the sacred earth and hid it in a hollow torch. He carried it down to earth, pass it on to mankind, and told them never to walk in darkness again. From then on, men were never cold and no beast dared to attack them, for they feared the light of the fire.

Now that men learned to burn pretty much everything, they've stopped looking at the ground, the dirt, and start looking at the smoke crawling upward the heavens, to the stars. They began to wonder and think, they began to imagine and feel the divine. They were not sham creatures no more. The humans transformed Earth to a Disneyland of the Gods with the temples they built.

They were honoring the Gods by burning on the temples' altars the best pieces of meat from an animal, and the Gods loved it!

Zeus was ready to forgive Prometheus' act of stealing the fire but Prometheus didn't let go. He didn't stop there. If he did stop there, everybody would have been happy and peaceful.

Prometheus didn't want the hard earned food of the humans to get wasted in this way. So, he told the humans to butcher an animal and divide the meat into two equal piles. In the first pile should be the good meat hidden under the animal's bones. In the second pile should be the guts of the animal covered with snow-white fat. Prometheus then invited Zeus to come down to earth and decide which pile he wanted for the sacrifices. Zeus being Zeus, suspected that this was a trick but he still made a choice: the snow-white pile. But after this fiasco everything changed for both, Prometheus and humans.

For Prometheus' punishment of not knowing when to stop, Zeus chose a never ending torture: he banished Prometheus on the Caucasus Mountains tied up with unbreakable heavy chains. Every day an Eagle ate his liver (the liver symbolized strong passion) and every night his immortal liver healed up; but every day the eagle returned and he had to suffer again, until the eagle was shot and killed by the arrows of, the one and only, Hercules.

For humans' punishment of cheating the Gods, Zeus chose a more subtle yet tricky way of misery: he commanded Hephaestus, master of insanely mad technology and god of fire, to create the first woman. He made her very beautiful based on Aphrodite's looks. He gave her a jar and sent her up to Olympus to ask the Gods to put in her jar one positive and one negative element of Life. Thus, the beautiful woman was named Pandora, meaning Every-Gift (Pan = Everything, Dora = Gift).

Zeus, then, sent Hermes down to earth, to accompany Pandora and to introduce her to Epimetheus, brother of Prometheus. Prometheus, having the ability to foresee, advised his brother not to accept any gifts from the Gods. But he was too late. Epimetheus fell in love with Pandora and accepted her present and when he opened the jar, first swarmed out the negative elements: Greed, Pain, Envy, Deceit and all the evils that corrode humankind ever since. Epimetheus got so scared, he sealed up the jar and burried it underground with the positive elements inside. Only Hope did get out of the jar in time.

So, we have Fire and Hope and a myriad of negative elements. Tied up on the Caucasus Mountain with heavy, unbreakable iron chains, Prometheus' isolation to travel into the lonesome realm of suffering, leaves us only with the Hope that he still has somewhere in his heart a Burning desire to give us one more gift from the Gods. Anything. Even if it would mean a perilous journey south.

Very, Very Clever Virus

Dec 26, 2010

Hawrozon Laboratories, famous for their secret and dismal experiments, have announced the discovery of a new kind of virus that will help humanity to accomplish Space Immigration by the end of 2011.

Apparently, the virus will cause more than a billion deaths as an elimination process. Humuncli, as they named the virus, is caused by a tiny ameboid organism called 'plasmodium', which is transmitted via the Anopheles Mosquitoes. The plasmodium, is a particularly clever parasite which invades into the human body, changing forms while developing itself, infecting the blood and the liver and at the end, transforming into something else, which can infect the mosquitoes which they're bitting the infected human!...
The Humuncli parasite, manages to destroy the human immune system with the following incredible way:
It knows that our immune system detects the hostile microorganisms by determining the protein they produce, thus it constantly transforms its proteins. In this way, it survives inside the human organism, causing different symptoms.

One of the symptoms of this virus is the complete dematerialization of the human bones. "A human infected with Humuncli virus, will be completely boneless in six months and eventually dead because of Gravity, since it will be impossible to live without bones in an environment where Gravity applies". With this vision in mind, Hawrozon Laboratories plan to depopulate the Earth and send boneless humans in Space where Gravity doesn't apply.

They plan of releasing the virus sometime between the first and the second quarter of 2011. Humuncli's first symptom is extreme idleness. IF you feel in any way or form idle, lazy, heavy, cement, sleepy, inactive, lethargic, sluggish, useless, like you lived in a vast nothingness all your life, that means you have been Humunclied! It's okay! Don't worry! You just won't have bones (or skeletons in your closet).
The only thing you can do is to bite the bullet. Oh, I forgot... You can't do that, since you will have no teeth. No teeth at all...
