... what the crap is this sentence?

The English breaks a few "sanity filters" in the translation.

'ej rewve'Daq mapuv! ("And in air, we fly")

The sentence is perhaps stating the obvious but I am not sure that it breaks a "sanity filter". Now, switch puH and bIQ and we have an issue....

I agree: that's a lousy way to say the English, and the punctuation is confusing. Obviously it should be We walk on land but we swim in water.
