Search on "Jeux" to find the chapter -- the game list makes up
essentially the entire chapter.
What would be really useful would be for someone to sit down with both
the French and the English translation, and correlate the names
(assuming, of course, that they *do* correlate), so we can see what the
French originals were for these English translations. That's not
horribly difficult, just a bit of work. Then we can see what got
translated as "Losing Load Him", and whether the translation appears
spurious or not...
Who may undertake this project himself,
but is rather lacking in free time
right at the moment...
Re: Better Political Speechwriting
"Zathras look at budget deficit, says, not good. Stop spending.
But no one ever listen to Zathras. But one day, everybody listen.
Then, Zathras elected. Zathras will be great president. Someday even
have face printed on money. Then, everybody have Zathras face in
pants. It is good to be president."
