    I read that as: Brand-X makes really bad lower end bikes, the pictures they take of all their bikes suck just as much.

    唯一の問題はバイクの撮影に実際に大きい値のバイクの作成にあると、それら公正な同様に悪いある。

    Единственная проблема, они справедливые как плохими на фотографировать их bikes по мере того как они на делать реально большие bikes значения.

    L'unico problema è, è difettoso altrettanto a fotografare le loro bici come sono a fare le bici realmente grandi di valore.

    Is that so?

    المشكلة الوحيدة هي ، مثلما يذهبون سيئة في التصوير على دراجات كما هي في الواقع ذات قيمة كبيرة صنع الدراجات.

    Το μονο προβλημα ειναι οτι ειμαστε εξισου κακο σε φωτογραφιζουν ποδηλατα τους οπως εχουν κανει πραγματικα μεγαλη αξια ποδηλατα.

    Good at making really low value bikes. Bad at taking pics of their bikes.

    It's wild how there are so many intrepretations from the subtle to the sublime, err, opposite.

    For me, it breaks down easy:

    "they're just as bad at photographing their bikes" = the pictures of said bikes suck

    "as they are at making really great value bikes." = bikes are overpriced. The bikes might be OK, but they are not "really great value bikes", so the price outweighs the level of quality.

    I agree with about 8 of the interpretations. :)

    what we have here is failure to communicate! :clapping:

    Assignment #2 involves parsing individual sentences. Each sentence goes through 3 stages of processing: tokenization; dictionary look-up; and parsing. Two 'resource files' are involved: a grammar and a lexicon. The Jet properties file must specify the resource file names, and the processing steps for each sentence (tokenization is automatic for sentences entered from the console)

    I interpret it as Lord Opie has moved on from meticulously specing out a non existent bike to scrutinizing the marketing materials of said bike.
