LiPo disaster - be careful!!

It was only a matter of time.

Quote:

Chinese poet Li Po (701-706) is regarded as one of the two greatest poets in China’s literary history. He was well known for his love of liquor and often spouted his greatest poems while drunk.

One night, Li Po fell from his boat and drowned in the Yangtze River while trying to embrace the reflection of the moon in the water.

Poem of Li Bai:

李白
凤凰台上凤凰游,凤去台空江自流。
吴宫花草埋幽径,晋代衣冠成古丘。
三山半落青天外,二水中分白鹭洲。
总为浮云能蔽日,长安不见使人愁。

We'll have none of that kind of language here on RCGroups. What did he say?

Altavista:

Chinese-simplified translation:
In the Li Bai Fenghuang Tower the phoenix swims, the phoenix goes to a spatial river to flow automatically. The Wu palace flowers and plants bury the diameter, Jin generation of clothes Cheng Guqiu. Three mountains partly fall outside the blue sky, in two water minute egret continent. Always can block out the sun for the floating clouds, Chang An does not see causes the person to worry.

Chinese-traditional translation:
On Li Bai □凰 □凰 swims, □goes to a spatial river to flow automatically. □□the flowers and plants bury □, □generation of clothes Cheng Kuch'iu. Three mountains partly fall outside the blue sky, in two water minute Bai?chou. □□the floating clouds can block out the sun, □is peaceful □does not cause the person to worry.

...I'm guessing it was written in simplified Chinese. Was it any good?
Pidgeon translation:

Something about the X-men III Pheonix swimming in a tower, and the Pheoneix is in a "spatial" river with an automatic transmission. Must be water in the tower. Some flowers within a palace bury a diameter, yes, a mathematical diameter. Oh yeah, Some generation of clothing is somewhere. Mountains in a blue sky, which are also inside a bird continent for the duration of two "water-minutes"... and the bird continent can block the sun if the clouds ask, and by the way some guy can not see, so some other guy worries about whatever there is to worry about.

I am guessing the translation failed.

Update: I translated it back and forth between english-chinese-english till there was no change in translation, and got this:

Swims Li Bai in finis the Fenghuang tower, finis automatically goes to a spatial river to flow. The Wu palace flower and the plant bury the diameter, and reduces clothing city Guqiu in the golden yellow decadent generation. Three mountains are the components autumn outside the blue sky, in two water minute egrets mainland. Always possibly camouflages the sun is the vacillate cloud, Chang had not looked the cause person worried.

Automatic translation

Since we are severly out of topic, here is another one told to me by a person whose native language is English.

"out of sight, out of mind" was translated into Japanese. The resulting Japanese text then translated back into English.

It came back as "Blind idiot".

Hm. Perhaps this is about how not to charge LiPos?
