Yes, it's just before Swedish, the last link in the chain

I guess Oscar will do that part, then. :)

EDIT: Isn't Swedish -> English the last link?

Spanish --> English --> Swedish --> English

The "last link in the chain" part goes for swedish, maybe the comma shouldn't be there.

Since we're pretty much at half in the event, I suppose there would be no problem in posting just the order of the translations? (If 2 people confirm this, I will)

I'm not sure I follow, isn't the order of the translations alphabetical?

You either use your head and make the list yourself, or I post it here for your visual pleasures.

I made a first draft of my translation just now. I will take another look at it in half an hour before finalising it.

Good news people! (Don't explode type568)

Both Marco Radaelli and FMC are joining in to the translation chain! The more the better! Marco has confirmed me this via PM.

They'll be put in the end of the chain, so the order for any of you doesn't change at all. The last one will just have to send them to Marco additionally.

The problem was that FMC didn't have another italian translator to join in. He proposed that Marco participated too, and so, I'm giving him the possibility to participate in the experiment as well.

That increases the number of translations to 18. Nice!

I sent of my translation just now. I struggled with how much I should transliterate and how much I should reinterpretate. Now I'm very curious how close I was to the original version :D

Great, Slartibartfast, you're next. Will you have any problems with sending Hebrew messages via PM?

The forum seems to be ok, so the PM system should be too.

@Goalie: I tried to do my best, and I admit to be a lot curious about how you turned them back to English ! I can't wait !

Isn't that fission and not fusion?

Ron Novy said:

He didn't say whose implied bomb it was that exploded in Israel ;)

Anyway, I'm done with my translation, it was fun. I won't specify how well I think I did until the experiment is over, for fear of tainting the results.

I think it's actually somewhat that "three stage detonation", dunno..
Since the temperature of these two is already 10mil, some fission is assumed to take place nearby the same moment.. & is kindeh' supposed to suffice for these guys to start fusing their atoms :P

However, I've received my 5 sentences & sent'em further so the reaction is postponed for now :P

Ya.. I was made in the USSR. Although Izrael has got teh bombehs too.. Or so they all say.

Some of us were really close to some unwanted chain reaction..

Iron is at the bottom of the nuclear energy output curve. Elements heavier than iron take more energy to fuse than they output, but yield a net gain for fission, vice versa for elements lighter than iron.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

The lack of sun is perhaps making my brain working half it should, but I can't see how I would have started a chain reaction.

I am for sure not understanding something there.

Pu-238 isn't fissile, only fissionable. And besides, it's far too rare and valuable for RTG fuel to use in anything else. :)

Hell yeah. I am ashamed.

To revive my honor I must follow the Norglaw's law and make a human sacrifice. As I don't have a fsking young and nice virgin under the hands, I'll use some type568 nuclear-mind powered bomb.

It's just a matter of time, and I'll find that fscking lost bag with the beloved red button inside.

If another experiment is to come soon, the risks of an "unexpected" detonation will rise again.. I think you're running out of time, hurry..
