    Great Chinglish Packaging :)

    My new KB for the Android mini-pc arrived yesterday, and rather funky it is too. I have no complaints whatsoever about how it works or performs. In fact you could say I'm very happy indeed with it.
    What cheered me up no end was taking a look at the packaging after I'd set it up

    Stare in awe-struck wonder as random words are thrown together and almost make sense:

    Fear the random capitalisation!

    Weep when you realise the random tech-jargon generator is not included in the packaging:

    All-in-all, I'm very impressed with just how much use of Google Translate went into the production of this box

    I purchased a chainsaw from Amazon (crazy I know - me with a chainsaw) only to find the instruction 'booklet' was a photocopied two-page confused set of manglish instructions. Not good when you are trying to assemble the blasted thing! I was "exhorted to the given safety procedures follow!" - none of which were listed but which I assume were mainly that I try not cut my own legs off with the thing.

    In the 1980s, my Kawasaki GPZ1100 had air shockers and the instructions said "if the ride is too hard, press the air release a twinkle". I never did determine exactly how much "a twinkle" was.

    The instruction manual's worth a read too! Not too bad a translation but there are some little phrases that made me chuckle.
