Lost in Translation

Doublespeak and sarcasm.

The problem with not understanding a language natively, is you miss the little cues that indicate hidden meanings.

Who knows if he's really saying "sure we'll continue the 5D (as it cut into our 1D sales, like hell I'll promote that product line again!)"


"The maniacs (the ones who drive our profit margins with the 1D series) better stop buying the 5D or we won't think of them as professionals"


For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
Carl Sagan
