Secret Messaging service found in Google Translate

Security researchers have discovered that strange variations of latin words from the Cicero ‘Lorem Ipsum’ text translate into totally unexpected sentences using Google Translate. Google have now hard-coded the algorithm NOT to translate the words Lorem and Ipsum, but from my tests you can still create secret messages using other Latin words. Suspiciously a lot of the variations produce sentences with the words - China, Russia, Network, NATO, and so on. Since Google translation algorithms learn autonomously through Machine Learning the researchers believe that someone has gamed the system to make it learn this instead. I guess they may have done this by surreptitiously feeding Google with latin/secret language texts.

I'm working on my first novel and I realised that I resist the idea of hurting my characters too much – at the same time finding it necessary, as success shouldn't come too easy to the protagonists. As I'm halfway through NOS4A2 now, I started to wonder: does it come naturally with the flow of the story to hurt or even kill off characters that you find sympathetic or is it hard for you? If so, how do you deal with it? Thanks.

I am a cruel, joyless man and my heart is a block of poisoned, toxic ice.

Also, no one wanted to buy my book MR HAPPY HAS A NICE DAY. I don’t know why.

Instead of going to see Transformers: Age of Extinction I had the crazy guy who lives at the dump throw lawnmower parts and scream at me for three hours.
