You really need to keep an eye on the kids to make sure they don't exceed their best-by dates; otherwise you end up with a spoiled child.

The kind that comes from the article being written by somebody in China who used Google Translate to produce the English version of TFA.

Is this an article from an actually human being or some computer bot? If it is from an actual human...very poor proof reading and editing. If it is some sort of computer/robot....that is scary.

A six year old by themselves I would question the intelligence of letting be free range. But add the ten year old and in a decent neighbourhood with safe traffic I don't see a problem.

I would be pissed at my newspaper if I actually paid for a subscription and it came to me like this.
 
2015-04-13 09:05:02 AM  
I've been noticing this lately on Google news.  You get a news story that starts trending, and then all of a sudden, you get more news stories from random BS sites that have legit sounding names, like "Picayune Leader".  The articles have taken the original story, and replaced random words with synonyms, without any regard to the final product.  It's obviously gaming the Google news algorithms to get clicks from being near the top of the search results.

Once the story goes mainstream, they seem to get filtered out though.

Sheesh, it looks like like the system they have is just a robot that finds articles and then reposts them after running every other word through a thesaurus program.  I'd assume it simultaneously submits articles to fark (which would be wildly hilarious) but sadly the title is in legible English.

It's a rather obvious attempt to produce a higher number of articles without using people to write them and without violating the copyright of other news organizations.

It's all you need to know: the momentary safety strategy indicated they are not authorized to go away the youngsters unattended at all, sure, because the longer period safety strategy would allow them to go away the youngsters unattended without the momentary enchantment the shorter moment verdict.  Simple.  And after 5 years they could expect to experience to sign a momentary safety strategy to just take them house.  See, like the Romans they would expected to go a house.

Yep. At the end it says the linked article was "regenerated" using Google. I doubt it. Either that was MSTD's work or someone at the Picayune reads Fark and copy-catted his/her style.
