Daily Links, August 30, 2010

Found this Taiwan government Chinglish fail in my Gmail ads: "Interesting" in Taiwan? Aargh. There are thousands of native speakers who work for the government who could easily correct fails like this.

August. Even in the heat and rain, plenty of stuff happening.

~Just came across this very interesting link, apparently the Bank of China's Governor Zhou Xiaochuan defected. Wow, if true.

Wow. Lots of places reporting rumors of his defection.
