  1. Wow, I can't believe all of those are mis quoted. I've used some of those!

  2. Depends on the language of origin. I know a lot of quotes are changed to make it rhyme or shorter.

    Or most likely a screw up by the editors when producing.

  3. Wow whats with the blue thingies?

  5. Interesting stuff! all of the blue comes up as some asian language I cant read though :P
