  7. I think it is a high-risk profession if you stay all day long in front of the computer, and you don't exercise (I did that at the beginning of my career :=)). It is crucial to find a balance between your job and your personal life. Otherwise, you are going to suffer from serious health conditions, just like Mox :=)

  8. Oh, hilarious as always! We find ourselves slightly hyperventilating when we see terrible translations, so we completely sympathize with Mox passing out. Hope he feels better.

    Alejandro: (it's Judy) -- I will share some of your cartoons with my new students at the online Intro to Translation class at the University of San Diego if that's OK. Of course I will also recommend your book. :) I am about to purchase another one, actually.
