Absolutely! Try it from French to German to Spanish to French to English!

I think we begin losing some precision...

No problem Michael, there are plenty in the US with bad English too! I'm sure our British friends would agree...

Aucun problème Michael, là ne sont abondance aux USA avec le mauvais anglais aussi ! Je suis sûr que nos amis britanniques conviendraient...

English as She is Spoke

"A 60-page pamphlet printed in Britain in 1883, consisting of selections from Pedro Carolino's The New Guide of the Conversation in Portuguese and English, which had been published a few decades earlier. Carolino's work was a phrase book, containing English words and phrases that a foreigner could use during travel in the British Isles. However, there was one problem: Carolino had no knowledge of English whatsoever.

Carolino made his phrase book by translating a Portuguese-French phrase book into English using a French-English dictionary. The fact that Carolino didn't know very much French complicated matters even further. Confused? Pretend for a minute that you're Carolino. You know Portuguese and a little French. First, you translate Portuguese into French using a phrase book. Then you take that French and translate it to English word-for-word using a dictionary. The result? Well, it makes Babelfish look like Shakespeare.

In fact, the resulting phrase book is so humorous that it makes me crack up 150 years after it was written. The pamphlet was so popular in Britain that it ran to 10 editions. An American version was published by Mark Twain, who was so impressed by the book that he wrote an introduction in praise of it."

The link contains the entire text of this great work.

I'm just guessing, but I think this volume may have been on the bookshelf of the programmers of "Zero Wing" ('All your base are belong to us')

At such times I'm always reminded of what Ringo Starr said when he was asked if he knew the King's English?

He responded: No, but I know the Queen's! ; )

L'activité "fusée" est très reglementée en france. Au delà des moteurs estes, il n'y a rien de disponible en vente libre. Toutefois, le CNES et l'ANSTJ ont été chargés par le gouvernement d'encadrer les jeunes qui voudraient construire des fusées. Ils donnent des moteurs de 80Ns à 2000Ns aux clubs qui construisent leurs modèles en suivant un cahier des charges strict. Les modèles sont controlés puis lancés seulement lors de campagnes de lancements régionales ou nationales organisées par l'anstj.

The "rocket" activity is highly regulated in France. Beyond the estes engines, there is nothing freely available. However, the CNES and the ANSTJ have been charged by the government to follow the people who would like to build rockets. They give engines from 80Ns to 2000Ns to the clubs which build their models following a strict schedule of conditions. The models are checked for conformity and launched only at regional or national launching campaigns organized by the anstj.

Michel,

have you considered coming across to the UK to fly at UKRA events? We regularly play host to our friends from the Netherlands and Germany, you'd be most welcome!

Regards

sounds like France needs a French G.Harry Stine to evangelize and popularize model rocketry..

Of course... I went to crock meetings some years ago. Very funny. Maybe next year...

ps: I live in Belgium. The situation isn't as bad as in France. There is nothing specific about rocketry in the law. Only regulation on explosive items. So for the moment we fly what we want...
