Well, Doug put in his "how my vacation went" page, hit English-French-English, and got back "comment mes vacances ont disparu" ("how my holidays disappeared"). Ha!
I had him try "I am a computer science major" - I had just graduated the previous summer - and we got "je suis un commandant d'informatique" ("I am a commander of data processing"). I have yet to meet any CS who doesn't find that to be poetic justice. Knot that we are lal that keen on potery. Or justice. #-)
Apropos this entry title: I can hardly believe it's been nearly 10 years since my first post in rec.arts.books.tolkien. It is fitting that it was a tongue-in-cheek, cross-posted comment about wanting to write an ultimate SF spoilers list.
