Don’t even begin to ask why, but this morning I had to translate something from English into Finnish and, according to Google Translate, it turns out that the Finnish word for “up” is “Facebookiin” (with a capital F).

This must surely have caused chaos when the Pixar animated movie Up was released in Finland shortly before The Social Network (the film about the founding of Facebook).

I tried typing “Yahhooiin” into Google Translate but, sadly, there is no such word in Finnish.

We live in confusing times.
