I hate studying.
気持: waiting to leave...
(boredom + babelfish. I didn't even fix the ones I know are wrong...)

Ik haat bestuderend.
Je déteste étudier.
Ich hasse studieren.
Μισώ. <-- Hehehe, looks like "Miow". Did I pick English-Greek or English-Cat? Oddly enough, when trying a reverse conversion, it gives "Mjsw'".
Odio studiare.
私は調査することを憎む。 <-- Even the site knows this is wrong...
나는 공부 미워한다.
Eu odeio estudar.
Я ненавижу изучить.
Odio estudiar.

Overall, I'm impressed with the progress this software has made over the last several years, at least with Romance languages. I remember when it did straight gerund-gerund conversions.

I really really want to explain to someone the niftiness of computers realizing that gerunds in English serve the same function as infinitives in Romance languages, but I'm sure everyone reading this either already knows or doesn't care, so I won't, even though I'm really incredibly bored and I love explaining things. I suppose it'll be even niftier when they get computers to realize that in Japanese this sentiment is expressed by the use of an adjective rather than a verb...

Well, only when the subject is uninteresting. Don't tell any of our old high school English teachers (especially Mrs. Johnson), but I've developed a real hatred for literature. Or exams over literature, anyway.

I've developed a hatred for over analysis of texts. It's hard to read for the pleasure of reading any more. My favorite is when people try to relate everything to Christianity (I heard someone in a class of mine wanted to write a paper on Oedipus' lack of Christian duties. HELLO! Sophocles was writing 400/500 years BEFORE Christ).

I did like this one class called "Feminine Literature". Basically it was all literature written by women in Spanish, and you could get a good grade on any essay/exam just by citing examples from the text and rambling about how much women are oppressed. That was fun.
