    LOL!! My lord I hate that Babelfish site, I tried translating a diary entry for a french exam, and when I got the test back my teacher said I wrote down my sister was very attractive and my mother is muscular :(

    Could it really have been that hard for the Journalists to find a dutch person on the internet to translate it properly for them?
