Cracking an international market is a goal of most growing corporations. It should not be that difficult, yet even the big multi-nationals run into trouble because of language and cultural differences. For example.The name Coco-Cola in China was first rendered as Ke-Kou-Ke-La. Unfortunately, the coca cola company did not discover until after thousands of signs had been printed that the phrase means "Bite The Wax Tadpole" o "Female Horse Stuffed With Wax," depending on the dialect. coca cola then researched 40,000 Chinese characters and found a close phonetic equivalent, "Ko-Kou-Ko-Le," which can be loosely translated as "Happiness In The Mouth."

In Taiwan, the translation of the Pepsi slogan, "Come Alive With the Pepsi Generation," came out as, "Pepsi Will Bring Your Ancestors Back From The Dead."

Also in Chinese, the Kentucky Fried Chicken slogan, "Finger-Lickin' Good," came out as "Eat Your Fingers Off."

The American slogan for Salem cigarettes, "Salem-Feeling Free," got translated in the Japanese market into "When Smoking Salem, tu Feel So Refreshed That Your Mind Seems To Be Free And Empty."

Welcome to The Weakest Link.

Here is a very simple little test comprised of four preguntas to determine the level of your intellect. Your respuestas must be spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating o wasting time.

And NO CHEATING. On your mark, set....GO!!!

1: tu are competing in a race, and overtake the runner in segundo place.
In which position are tu now?

Answer:

If tu answered that you're now coming first then you're completely wrong. tu overtook the segundo runner and took their place, therefore you're coming second.

For the siguiente pregunta try not to be so dumb.

2 : If tu overtake the last runner, what position are tu now in?

Answer:

If tu answered second-last, once again you're completely wrong. Think about it...How can tu over take the person coming last? If you're behind them then they can't be last. The answer is impossible!!

It would appear that thinking is not one of your strong points. tu would make a good door-stop!!! Anyway, here's another to try, don't take any notes o use a calculator, and remember your respuestas must be...

I'm making a new graphic novel/manga series (still untitled). It's about a large group of agents from the future, trying to defeat an evil force called I.E.S.A. The agency, with no specific name, is trying to stop I.E.S.A from grabbing the earth's energy and using it to power the maciene they made, which will destroy the earth. The series focuses on 6 of their members, the frutas Racers. They find a human girl, Katsumi, and figure out that she is the closest thing related to the leader of the agency, who could not find any family members. The frutas Racers are training Katsumi to become más powerful. Along the way, Katsumi encounters enemies, and meets members of the agency.
here are the characters:

Katsumi Takashi: A 17 año old girl who lives in future Tokyo. Although everything is high-tech, she prefers to live a normal, 00's like, life (this story takes place in the late 2000's-early 3000's). She is weak, and hates sports. Her life was pretty boring...that is...until the frutas Racers came along.

Hello everyone! :)

I'm here escritura about the sadness of people getting teased over how they look.

I hear some songs taking the mic of people who aren't perfect pyshically and I hear horrid things about bullying in public schools.

It makes me sad because back when I was a kid, I used to get teased for having a birth mark on my nose which wasn't overly flattering.
People in my class used to call it the "Witches" spot and dicho stupid stuff like "Burn the witch!" and "Nice wart" And some people were scared to go near me because they thought that a birth mark was contagious and that they'll get it.
At first I ignored them, but it went on....
After a mes the same group of people who started to bully me got worst. they used to snigger when they saw me walk past and say "I think theres a bit of ugly dirt on your nose...Oh thats just your mark!"
There words hurt a lot más than they realised it did, but i dicho nothing.

I "wonder" why some "people" like to use misceláneo "quotation marks" in their "sentences".

Someone should get this state on meds cause this weather is bipolar!

Today's forecast: Partially moody with a chance of I don't like you.

Be warned if tu piss me off today I'm going to knock your teeth so far down your throat tu will need to stick your toothbrush up your backside to clean them.

I am only crazy 99% of the time.. The other 1% is trying to figure out how to make it a 100%! :p

If tu are god's gift to women, then i hope god kept the receipt coz i want a refund.

Wishes tu could borrar people in real life like tu can on Facebook.

Wondering if the person who invented the term "good morning" was on too many drugs.

My intelligence is misunderestimated irregardless of my enourmousish vocabularity.

AS tu can tell, i am no longer going into the spot where i should of wrote this. To all members of the misceláneo spot i am sorry it's just a fighting issue. I'm not posting this in the TDI spot becuase i am leaving that spot. tu guys just keep on fighting! Please, please stop it! tu are wrecking the fanpop family, and tu are breaking my heart. Please, i am begging you! If tu have any kindness left in you, please just say sorry.



FORGIVE AND FORGET,LIFE IS TOO SHORT WITHOUT REGRETS.

Some are lighthearted‚ some are serious‚ all are very true.
Here are some of them:

-Don't drink uva jugo, jugo de while wearing a white camisa, camiseta and driving to school.

-Don't let your life wait for other people.

-Dropping a cell phone into a full bathtub‚ kind of kills the phone.

-Your mom will find out if tu dye your hair purple.

-You haven't really lives until you've gotten a 48 on an Advanced Placement U.S. History test.

-Don't ever fall in amor with someone who is más than a thousand miles away from you. It usually doesn't work out.

-Milk cartons make boring pets.

-If it hurts‚ DON'T DO IT AGAIN!

-That which does not kill tu will ultimately make tu stronger.

-Speaking in public gets easier with practice.

-Don't sprint around a pool if you're trying to act like an idiot.

-Ten years from now most of what we freak out about won't make any difference.

I run my fastest
But still get beat.
I land on my head
When I should be on my feet.
I try to mover forward‚
But I am stuck in rewind.
Why do I keep at it?
I won't be left behind.

The harder I am thrown‚
The higher I bounce.
I give it my all‚
And that's all that counts.
In first place‚
Myself‚ I seldom find.
So I push to the limit-
I won't be left behind.

Some people tell me tu can't‚
Some say don't.
Some simply give up.
I reply‚ I won't

The power is here‚
Locked away in my mind.
My perserverance is my excellence‚
I won't be left behind.

Make the best of each moment‚
The future is soon the past.
The más I tell myself this‚
The less I come in last.
Throughout my competitions‚
I've learned what winning is about.
A plain and clear lesson-
Giving up is the wasy way out.

When I resolve into the essence
Tlhat I mostly am‚
I feel a deep connection
With every living thing.
For that which most imbues me
With my identity
Is somehow in the other‚ too‚
So that when I look around
I see myself- reflected
Hidden is this union
Is the wonderful discovery
That if indeed the angels
Have wings-
Then so do I.
And if the essence of a flower
Drifts out of a gentle breeze-
Then so do I.
And if the midnight sky
Is radiant with light-
Then so am I.
And if the silent mystery
Somehow becomes revealed
In tiny dewdrops fair-
Then so willI.
For every lovely thing
Manifests the essence
Of which I am a part‚
So beware‚ my soul‚ beware‚
And mover with gentle heart
Throughout theis mystic veil.
For if amor has left its imprint here-
Then so have I!

Bottled up inside
Are the words I never said‚
The feelings that I hide‚
The lines tu never read.

tu can see it in my eyes‚
Read it on my face:
Trapped inside are lies
Of the past I can't replace.

With memories that linger-
Won't seem to go away.
Why can't I be happier?
Today's a brand-new day.

Yesterdays are over‚
Even though the hurting's not.
Nothing lasts forever‚
I must cherish what I've got.

Don't take my amor for granted‚
For soon it will be gone-
All tu ever wanted
Of the amor tu thought you'd won.

The hurt I'm feeling now
Won't disappear overnight‚
But someway‚ somehow‚
Everything will turn out all right‚

No más wishing for the past.
It wasn't meant to be.
It didn't seem to last‚
So I have to set him free.

"Friends forever‚" tu promised.
"Together till the end."
We did everything with each other.
tu were my best friend.

When I was sad‚ tu were por my side.
When I was scared‚ tu felt my fear.
tu were my best support-
If I needed you‚ tu were there.

tu were the greatest friend‚
tu always knew what to say:
tu always made everthing seem better.
As long as we had each other‚
Everything would be okay.

But somewhere along the line‚
We slowly came apart.
I was here‚ tu were there‚
It tore a hole in my heart.

Things were changing‚
Our cheerful música reversed its tune.
It was like having salt without pepper‚
A sun without it's moon.

Suddenly we were miles apart‚
Two different people‚ with nothing the same.
It was as if we hadn't been friends;
Although we knew deep in our hearts‚
Neither one of us was to blame.
