I don't even have a bluff answer

Wish I'd had the presence of mind to take a screenshot of this tweet before I clicked the link, which said "Translate this tweet." In any case, this is the result of clicking that link:

I have no idea which machine-learning system (?) thinks any of that tweet needed translating (not counting from English to something else, of course), much less from Portuguese.

And granted I'm running Windows, but why is Microsoft handling trying to perform translation services on Twitter, being viewed through Firefox?

See, this is how conspiracy theories get started.

Also, cattle mutilations are up.

Did you do the recent Winders update? Seems every time I update anything the default settings change.

Doing Windows Update now (I always wait a day to see if there's any news about updates causing problems), so I don't think that was the cause of yesterday's weirdness. Unless, of course, They can violate causality.
