    This reminds me of a famous incident (and probably, like most famous incidents, an apocryphal one too) that involved the Russians, the Americans and quite possibly the beginnings of détente.

    The received story is that the CIA set up a computer to enable them to quickly and automatically translate to and from Russian. Searching for a suitable phrase to test the machine they came up with “Out of sight out of mind” (that, to digress, surely says a lot about the shortcomings of the CIA). They fed this into the computer which duly spat out some Russian (exactly what that was isn’t recorded, which surely says a lot about the shortcomings of language instruction in the English Speaking world) which they then fed back in. Out came the perfectly well-formed English phrase “Invisible imbecile”.http://howlandbolton.com/essays/read_more.php?sid=14
