    LOL! Funny!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    All too true. Some products are coming with very poorly written instruction sheets now.

    Not all signs in China are translated poorly, some make you feel down right peaceful. Check out the sign I saw when I was in Shanghai a few years ago.

    I was there working for awhile..... where I was there were almost NO English translations of anything.

    Did they mean to say Bigfoot (Yeti)?

    Anybody here that can do a more accurate translation?
