I know what you mean. I just had to translate "je meurs seul".

And there I was wondering why "she loves weapons", must be a link there.

My favorite so far hasn't been about death, (I haven't got that far yet) it's been 'Les hommes seuls boivent' (Lonely men drink) XD That's so very French, isn't it?

You know :) Don't stress it, these sentences are not real ;) And did you know these are computer generated sentences?

No, they aren't - at least not on the old tree or the new tree released in an A/B test about 4 mths ago. Human beings created those sentences. The only thing that is computer generated is the TTS (text to speech) voices.

However, I cannot comment on the "new" staff-created tree released to all new users about 4-5 weeks ag.

About people dying

The other day it was about people being upset with their spouse and leaving. Sometime random sentances create some crazy stories.

I know right. I had a sentence in spanish saying, my knife is red and I'm like 0o0 what made it red?

I had one in "Spirituality" saying "Dogs eat dead animals"!!! Bizarre, because really, we all eat dead animals!

I like "elephants eat dark chocolate"! Lucky elephants!

Or "He perdido a mi esposa y necesito recuperar a mi hijo", which means "I have lost my wife and I have to recover my son".

Computer generated sentences? I don't think so o.o
