    Aquarium Heater for Chicken Water

    I just bought an aquarium heater to put in the water tank on the chicken tractor after suffering through repairs to the system when it all froze last week. It's supposed to be fully submersible, so that's what I plan to do with it. I'll put it at the end where the water tube comes out so that part for sure will not freeze again. In reading the box for any installation instructions (there were none), I got a chuckle... no, make that a guffaw out of the Chinglish in a little text box labeled "Warmth Tip".

    Gotta love the Chinese for their attempts at English translations.

    It's closer than I could get going the other way...

    And surprisingly enough , we understand what they meant.
    Someday I'm going to pull my life together. But that day is not today. Today I'm driving a stolen police car.

    What part of "When you hand in aquatic anim als box homework, please confirm the disconnect of all the power plug." makes sense to you? Maybe my Alzheimer's has kicked in, but that sentence leaves me scratching my head.

    The "homework" is paperwork, if you're sending it from home, for warranty reasons, make sure it's correctly disconnected. Don't just yoink on the cable.

    God help us - just realized one's facility with Engrish might go hand in hand with the ability to make sense of government paperwork.
