    Arai wa? lol. That shit belongs on Engrish.com
    Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.

    I read this ad too, and my heart sank. It's written by a Swede, if I recall correctly, not a Thai. I called the agency about 6 months ago and he speaks like that too.

    Most Scandinavians have excellent English, but obviously not this one. He even gets his 'before' and 'after' in the 'http' bit of the web address confused.
    We would rather be ruined than changed
    We would rather die in our dread
    Than climb the Cross of the moment
    And see our illusions die

    Good luck.
    You know what really chaps my ass though?

    I spent my life savings turning my van into a dog.
    The alarm alone cost me two hundred.

    Amazing the he can do such a business. Over one hundred teachers working for this guy? It's hard to believe one hundred teachers would even respond to an ad like that. Ameteur hour.
    ...you get what you need.
