So print the source as bar-code in little booklets, and sell them with the diet,
astrology, and encounters-with-angels guides at the grocery store check-out
lines. For an extra $5, the customer can have the checker scan the booklet's
pages and the cash register will produce a translation in your choice of
formats. Will that be paper or plastic? XML? I'm, sorry, we can't do that
here in the express lane. That counts as 10 items and you have a six-pack, too.


In case of accidental ingestion, do not induce vomiting.
