There's been a lot of so called three (or is it six?) -sigma events happening lately. 3 cents (US!) a word was just one of them - this one just hit my postbox:

...1000 words
at 100.000 EUR per word [ TOTAL: 100000.00 EUR ]
Payment method: Bank transfer
Payment 30 days after date of order.
Further payment details banktransfer, PayPal


Dudes, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas any more...;)

EDIT: to stay on the realistic ground the price is 100 and not 100.000€ / word...

No discounts for fuzzies Aug 11, 2008

At that price, I'd have to make it clear that I don't offer discounts for fuzzy matches!

QA Aug 11, 2008

Geez, I hope their QA process is a bit more stringent than their job posting process...

Thanks for the laugh, lexical!icon_wink.gif
