My Father-in-law recently bought a solar-powered battery charger. In the directions is "Must get rid of children." So there is your choice, a solar powered battery charger or your children? One or the other, can't have them both.
Sometimes I would buy a Bandai plastic model looking forward to reading the terribly messed up "english" with the instructions, usually about the History of the tank.. fun stuff!

They don't need spellcheck. They need to make their stuff in the US, or at least an english-speaking country.
I agree. The problem is it would cost ALOT more. The countries where most stuff is made, the workers are basically slaves. Meagre earnings, low quality of life. If you don't like the job, thousands of eager replacements will take it. Sad really, should be criminal.
