I discovered that translators are quite a moronic race

And this applies also to those who specifically studied to be , e.g. a teacher. Best teachers, singers are those who took up the minor job because the needed to survive.
Best translators are those who studied a more interesting subject and who became translators as means of survival; because is hard to survive on things that interest no one, e.g. anthropology and such.
The good thing is that this "translator-as-a-second-profession" not only knows how to better get clients but also might even provide better translation (especially in certain subjects). He has more "life experience" or deeper insights, which will show in his rendition.

I dreamed I could change a priest

Today I dreamed that a former schoolmate (30 years ago we went to the same primary school) who became a Catholic priest would start doing psychoanalitic therapy (thus possibly soon quitting priesthood).
I care for the truth, and I love it when we go for it among people I care for (mostly people I know from many years).
Said priest was above average when he was a kid, very sexual and sadistic in a very repressive Catholic school environment.
Now he rides a swanky motorbike and wears cool boots after mass. He enjoyed killing cats zum Beispiel, or running over dogs with his car.

Star Wars, infantile in the bad sense of the word

If something is taught it´s because it makes no easy money, otherwise the teacher wouldn´t be busy with you. Take this into account when you sign up for your next seminar.

When you work you are most likely to focus your mind in ways you wouldn´t. e.g. translate moronic brochures.
