[Haskell-cafe] Line noise

I read from many reviews and shootouts that cell phones sold in Japan 
are more diverse, advanced, and user-friendly than cell phones sold in 
the US.

So I bought one, but to my dismay, both the offline manual and the 
on-screen menu are line noise.

Then I found a web dictionary to translate them word-for-word. The 
result is still unparsible, like "water submerge in don't ever". Are we 
supposed to be human beings or are we supposed to be all Master Yoda's?

Why and how the whole Japanese population put up with this epic fail is 
beyond me.

Everyone should use exclusively ancient Egyptian iconography. It is the 
only universally readable language.
