I recently learned that "fartkontrol" is an actual Danish word. Unfortunately, it actually means "speed check."

"Fart" means speed in Norwegian too...
Wait... so what was that famous Keanu Reeves movie titled in Denmark and Norway? The mind boggles!

They are the French watchmen that repeated taunt king Arthur in his search for the Holy Grail.

TV writers have the same problem. They can't create anything that doesn't have an ongoing giant conspiracy in the background. Silly is the most polite and generous term I could apply.
That's why I stopped watching Enterprise (Star Trek) - as soon as they introduced a shadowy race of aliens behind everything bad I gave up. The same thing ruined (in my opinion) the X Files when they tried to tie everything together.

The alien invasion/Consortium arc was there from the beginning (I think the Cigarette-Smoking Man was in the very first episode...). That they went off the rails in the last seasons I agree with.

Do you think they (the writers) knew who he was from the beginning?

Boringly enough, "Speed". Mostly, titles of films for grownups aren't translated if the original title is in English.

Too bad. There would be a brisk business in Norwegian movie posters for college dormitories here if the title were translated.

I was reading a somewhat... poorly written fanfic where the author continually misspelled 'traitors' as 'traders.' Until I figured out what they actually meant, I couldn't figure out what everybody had against shopkeepers.

Does reading closed captions on TV count? I'm tired of seeing "diffuse" when it should be "defuse." Here's one that might be a bit obscure: seeing "bugalugs" when someone says "buggerlugs" with an English accent.

One fanfic I was reading had some characters "diffusing" a nuclear bomb. I wondered if that meant they were actually setting it off.
