Okay, I just read this article in the New York Times (All the News That's Fit to Print . . . and Some Shit We Just Made Up) about a new machine capable of making fast and accurate translations. It's interesting; read it.

But let me show you a quote from the article where the scientist is talking about teaching the computer every language, including Klingon:

"If we can learn how to translate even Klingon into English, then most human languages are easy by comparison."

Klingon is a fucking human language!!!!!!! It was made up by Star Trek geeks who, despite their smell and appearance, are actually human.

Holy yodeling Christ. This from a man with a Ph.D.
