    OR USE CAPITALS, WHICH SEEMS WELL CORRELATED WITH HOW EXTREME YOUR RELIGIOUS VIEWS ARE.

    Another fun thing about that poster is the English translation — the term wireless-mind-control-weapon, which is used without an article, seems to be a compound that would no doubt sound great in Chinese, but is probably not the first description English speakers would use. There are lots of these translations in China, and it is surprising how quickly you habituate to them (add-value-machine is another good one). No doubt Germans would think it’s just fine.
