I'm so glad someone took a picture of this so I can post about it!
A few weeks ago, BYU hosted a huge career fair. I decided to make a token visit. I always get depressed at these--professors always talk up their importance for getting a good, high paying career, making it seem like the recruiters hand out jobs. I've been to a few and have yet to be given a job, or even find one that interested me.
I did talk with the NSA people last time, which actually got me interested in working for them and led to my 3 day series of painful, tortuous interviews.
This time I walked by the "intelligence row," passing the FBI, CIA, DoD, and all the other government agencies, hoping for a free job. I stopped in front of the Navy Intelligence booth and looked at their recruitment poster, which had the phrase "Do you speak my language?" translated in several different languages. Normal recruitment advertising, right?
Take a look at the Arabic sentence:
For those who don't speak Arabic, it is written completely backwards and unconnected (Arabic is written with a cursive script from right to left). If it was English, it would say EGAUGNAL YM KAEPS OUY OD." The Russian is okay, as was the Italian, Spanish, French, and everything else.
And we wonder why we're in the chaos of Iraq?! We can't even EGAUGNAL RIEHT KAEPS!
