I am not a sailor

...and when we finally got the vault door open at the facility, we found just one thing: a copy of the translated and upgraded lyrics to "La Bamba." I was expecting some, you know, military blueprints, or perhaps a sentient stack of haiku poetry, or perhaps some incriminating documents, but no, I got La Bamba lyrics.

I tried to get a refund or something, but I couldn't, so now I'm going to get as much fun out of these top secret Mexican folk song lyrics and post them as widely as I can.

Here's the English translation I foundCollapse )

And you know what? The Wikipedia page about La Bamba says it's common to improvise the lyrics anyway.

Does anyone know where I can find that sentient stack of haiku poetry again?

We have a situation here.

Representatives of water are threatening to refuse to turn turbines if their demands are not met. They claim that the strike will include water in all forms, even steam.

But what are their demands, anyway?

I'm willing to negotiate with them, but whenever I go to talk with water about it, I see only myself.
