Английский перевод резко занижает серьёзность потенциальных проблем: "Phukkup" (fuck up) - ну фак ап, с кем не бывало. Это совсем не то же самое что в оригинале, где всё понятно и окончательно.
Лучше бы Fubar-ом назвали.

Все уже поняли о ком я, да?

Всё-таки меня не оставляет ощущение, что хотя-бы часть английского языка была придумана садистами.

Есть текст поделенный на четыре части: A, B, C, и D.
Надо перенести часть D между A и B а потом перенести часть B в самый конец. Найдите разницу, как говорят...

Русский:
1) Скопировать часть D и перенести её между A и B.
2) Скопировать часть B и перенести её в конец.

Английский:
1) Скопировать часть D и перенести её между A и B.
2) Скопировать часть B и перенести её в конец.
3) Потратить ещё два часа на корректировку tenses.

Так как моё тело отказалось спать сегодня, я решил, что пора почитать про суицид с таблетками.
Не пугайтесь, просто я собирался так "убить" героя из рассказа, но не хватало технический познаний.
Теперь их выше головы.

По верхней ссылке запроса "Suicide Sleeping Pills" потенциальный само-убийца задаётся вопросом, сдохнет ли он(а) проглотив пять разных снотворных. В промышленных количествах, естественно.

В итоге был найден файлик в котором описано всё, что вы хотели и не хотели знать о самоубийствах + редкие перлы.

Вот перлы:
* "In general, you need to stay away from medical help until you actually die."
* "LSD can't kill you by overdose... you might go psychotic if you take tens/hundreds of thousands of times the normal dose, but thats hardly surprising, since you'd have to be insane to take that much in the first place. Probably, the only way to kill yourself with this stuff is to drop two tonnes of it on yourself."
* Hara kiri: Trendy for insane martial arts fanatics and gay Japanese poets called Mishima.

В догонку, топ 7 способов убить себя (ап стену там нету).

И ещё, гениальная цитата с того же сайта:

* Lawyer: "Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?"
* Witness: "No."
* Lawyer: "Did you check for blood pressure?"
* Witness: "No."
* Lawyer: "Did you check for breathing?"
* Witness: "No."
* Lawyer: "So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?"
* Witness: "No."
* Lawyer: "How can you be so sure, Doctor?"
* Witness: "Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar."
* Lawyer: "But could the patient have still been alive nevertheless?"
* Witness: "Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law somewhere."

В догонку к предыдущей записи, я набросал Норвежцу концовку рассказа. Он сейчас в неё фтыкает.
Написано без всякой последующей проверки, так что там могут быть жуткие грамматические ошибки, но ладно.

Кстати, фишку про инопланетянина не знающего в какой рот сунуть сигарету надо будет запомнить и как-нибудь всунуть в что-то нормальное. :)

Perhaps he should’ve watched the street for a little bit longer. Watching from his command post Kivar smiled. The moment he waited for had arrived. Kivar gave the order and a beam of yellow light appeared from the alien craft and slid into Michael’s open window. Michael felt as if someone was watching him and tried to turn around. Alas, it was too late. The beam had already rendered him unconscious, and was slowly pulling him into the mother-ship.

“We’ve got him!” exclaimed Rath, “we can finally leave!” Kivar and Zan nodded. They could understand their friend's desire to leave Earth and return to their home planet as soon as possible. He had by far spent the most time out of them on Earth, masquerading as a human. Rath reached his newly-reacquired three-fingered green arm to the table and retrieved a lighter. He took a cigarette, and put it in his left mouth after a moment of hesitation. He felt something was awry. So he took another cigarette and put it in his right mouth this time. His friends smiled. “You’ve spent way too much time here, old friend,” finally uttered Zan.

The ship, carrying the three aliens and the unconscious Michael slowly gained speed and prepared to leave the atmosphere, before partaking on a journey to Tralfamador where Michael was to continue his life as an exhibit in the inter-galactic zoo.
“Look, a falling star,” exclaimed Andrea, “quick, make a wish!” Tom bent his head and kissed her. “Oh, I love you, Tom,” she said.

Я не злой. Бывают просто плохие рассказы. Вот человек хочет что-то сказать но не умеет. Над этим не надо смеяться. Но иногда бывают исключения... Вот один мой MSN-знакомый из Норвегии однажды признался мне что за всю жизнь не прочёл ни одной книги.
Потом, в какой-то момент, он со мной пытался поговорить, но получил в ответ "отстань, я пишу рассказ." Он выдал "знаешь, я тоже пишу!"

На мои робкие намёки о том что если он ни хуя не читал, он скорее всего напишет какую-то хуйню он забил, и прислал мне это, на оценку. Не знаю смеяться или плакать. В рассказе я ничего не менял. :D

Главный шедевр по моему мнению конечно фраза "Again he cried, again his pillow got wet."

P.S. Закрыто от гостей, а то ещё он случайно наГуглит и будет моск иметь.

upd: Чувак просит чтоб я написал продолжение. :D Сейчас его героя будут похищать инопланетяне. :lol:

He was sitting in his room, and felt that he was totally gone. He felt like something was terrible wrong. At the room over the bed he had a picture, he was younger back then and things used to go smoother for him in those days. Her hair was also shorter back in that time, her beautiful brown eyes were easier too look in, because there weren’t any sings of confusion in them. He had a walk out to the kitchen, took some push ups and took a glass of water. At the same moment he did look out the window, it was dark and the gate lights were shining over a pair who kissed each other. He could feel that he missing something, and moved away from the kitchen window.

Again he cried, again his pillow got wet. He tried to call her, but her cell phone was off. The same signs as usually arrived, she was out, had fun and she forgot him. Still she were all for him, he could not resist her. For all those years, all those gifts and all this attention he gave, to make an end on this weren’t an option.

The clock was 1:50 and he tried to catch her, but without any answers. He opened up the window in his room because he was terrible warm and frustrated. Outside he could hear the drunken people that did pass his window, so he either took on some music on his computer than listening to the stupid voices.

There's a thing I don't really want to do, but I have to, and not only for my own good.
Because... I mean frak. I've probably been warned about this a year ago by a wiser person, but didn't see it till very recently. Stupid me. It was worth it. Nevertheless - stupid me.

I'd love to just have done it earlier today, but PC demands I wait for another week. Or try less blunt measures first. Which is a stupid approach, to be honest, but I don't think this one more not-smart thing will kill me.

Sorry about the crypticness, I'll tell you next week. I think.
