Translation by Sri Lestari Bahagia (#12209) — Winner

- "I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous."

- "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

- "You can observe a lot just by watchin'."

- "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

- "I can't concentrate when I'm thinking."

- "The future ain't what it used to be."

- "I'm not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did."

- "We're lost, but we're making good time."

- "Half the lies they tell about me aren't true."

- "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

- "It's like deja-vu, all over again."

- "It ain't over till it's over."

- Mrs. Lindsay: "You certainly look cool." Yogi Berra: "Thanks, you don't look so hot yourself."

- "If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be."

Congratulations! Nov 24, 2012

The translation itself is very good, but what I see is a literal translation. Isn't it supposed to be funny? I think that the most important in translation is to keep the original idea. And these quotes were jokes, so...
Anyway, congrats, Bu Sri! Semoga sukses selalu:)
