Superendowed Children
Found on Liquito (the only Portuguese weblog I regularly read, even though I don't read Portuguese) [note: I meant portuguese-language blog... Liquito is a Brazilian blog]. Proof that the Egyptian pyramids and the Easter Island statues were constructed by superendowed children: image

The automatic translation on that page is superb:)

So funny! grin (im from Brazil)

I actually knew it's a Brazilian blog. It was late at night and my writing was getting sloppy. What I meant to say was that it's the only Portuguese-language blog I regularly read.

Oh, I was not offended at all if people understood the blog was from Portugal. I hope Portuguese people were not offended either smile

Thanks for the link, Alex. To top this language and counrty confusion, it's nice to note I found that image in a Japanese blog. Japanese-Japanese, it is. Those seem to be very tiny Japanese people on a school trip. Superendowed, obviously.

where is the auto translate button?

John - the autotranslate is on the right, just under the links to the archives. The little Union Flag with 'This page in English'. For some reason it doesn't translate every item though.

Incidentally, I'm rather concerned about the heading this has been given. I just hope none of my colleagues notice me receiving email about 'superendowed children'...!

Hmm. The other meaning of the heading hadn't occurred to me, but I guess it could be misconstrued. In my defense, I didn't think up the phrase myself. It's how the automatic translation thing translated the portuguese phrase crian̤as superdotadas.

thank you, Paul in Prague.

I'm on Eastern time, why is the time on my posting 3 hours earlier?
Posted by Darren  on  Mon Nov 15, 2004  at  09:59 AM
Because the server is in San Diego, CA.

If you look carfully at the picture you can see that there is a rock behind the children. smirk
