Okay, so when I started reviewing this particular pack of ebooks my client did say they were of "inferior quality" to some of the other ones, but even with the iffy writing in some of those, I was not prepared for stuff like this:

"GPS stands for World Positioning orbiters and is one of the most heady advancements in bailiwick for some distinct reasons. GPS was developed by the Federate States Section of Denial for soldier like applications, but it has quickly grown to state misused personally by the mundane mortal."

The only explanation I can think of is that this was originally written in a different language, run through an online translator, and put in the book without ever being looked at. "GPS stands for World Positioning Orbiters"? That does not acronym to GPS!

"Section of Denial" for what I assume means the Dept. of Defense just cracks me up, though.

Lol, that's how my dad speaks English. He just types in what he wants to say in Russian, the translator messes everything up and he doesn't even notice.

Ironically, he works in a company which develops stuff like GPS and satnav.
