Google translate scored a mighty hit today.
When processing (from Farsi) a seeming linguistically innocent Nasrallah speech regarding Lebanese-Iran relations, the string that in English translates to 'Mahmoud Ahmadinejad' Iran's President', yielded in Russian:
"Mahmoud Ahmadinejad' baron Münchhausen"...

I wonder who is programming the translator, is it Brin himself?..

Equally mysterious and hilarious! :mrgreen:

It must be a secret title of his that only Russians know about...
