Among all the icons was that solitary profile picture of Jacob Bruckhardt, kind of funny.

Of course it is.

It seems I'll work on the Olympic Games as an OFA. That's short for "someone important and his family's handyman" (which can be in a wide range from the Prince of Monaco to some sports chairman from Central Africa). It'll certainly be fun, but maybe I shouldn't have told the committee that I speak German in my interview, since I'll definitely work with some German speaker because of that. I do know German, but I have few actual practice so being supposed to conversate in the language for three weeks straight is a pretty horrifying idea. They will turn me into a Bratwurst! I also told them I'm Orthodox, however, so there's a chance they put me with some Eastern European tycoon since they want us to work for similar people.

I think that most Germans speak some English, so you should be fine.

They do, but these people will probably be expecting a German speaker to follow them. Well, it won't be the end of the world though, as long as I don't mess his agenda he'll have more things to worry about than my abilities.

The standard ones seem to be actual employees, but there are a few airlines now which have "funny" ones; maybe I can get in on those, since there are more parts.

From what I hear, subpar translations will be the least of the problems at the Rio Olympics.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Undoubtedly. Last week the mayor declared the city is in state of calamity, and I doubt violence against tourists can be anyhow prevented by the police during the games, one of the four areas in the city is in an extremely dangerous location also... Lord, have mercy.

Back in high school, I would frequently use LSD early in the morning. It would lead me to get twenty minutes late to the first class of the day, sit behind my desk and keep quiet, tripping and hoping no one would talk to me. Frankly, I was the worst teacher ever.

“Universe,” “love,” “eternity,” “brotherhood,” “peace,” “life,” “justice,” “truth,” “God”… These are big words. Very big words. But not nearly big enough. They can’t be defined; they can only be lived.

I see a significant amount of Russian in my Facebook feed, and I can't read a lick of it. The "auto-translate" feature is helpful but often a poor translation.

The following was contained in a post in my feed about a parishioner talking about her son

Quote
Вот удивил миша, так удивил! Даже меня, привыкшую к нему

FB auto-translated as:
Quote
What a (removed -ZZ)Misha, so surprised!
(emphasis mine) 

Google translate rendered:
Quote
That surprised Misha so surprised !

According the person who posted, she said she would translate as:
Quote
Misha surprised me so much!"

It left me in stitches imagining this women calling her son a (removed -ZZ).

Google Translate for Greek is similarly horrible.  I've come across so many articles titled something like "The Archbishop meets with his girlfriend", accompanied by a photo of a bishop with some portly old man.


Trying to find the cake photos again?

Naughty, naughty!!

I sold Mor the DVD with director's commentary in both Greek and English, so he's covered.
