I just don't know how I feel about being responsible for this person's rised development...

This may not be the case, but I read there's a program out there that translates your native tongue into whatever language you wish to communicate in. I've read threads that have been put through that "strainer", as a goof, and they can get pretty amusing if not downright incomprehensible.

Somewhere on the web is a program called "Babelfish" (yes, like in the Hitchhikers guide). It can translate many languages. I've not used it much so I don't know how humerous its results are. I once translated a page on cloth bar tape and it was pretty readable with some odd things.
