So I was doing a Google search on my own name, as one does, and Google turned up this page on a mysterious site known only by a number. The page is about “The Tale of the Golden Eagle” and it has two reader comments. One reader gives the story a grade of 5, the other a 4. I can’t even figure out what language the page is in, never mind what it says. The Xerox language guesser thinks it’s Estonian. But there doesn’t seem to be any automated Estonian to English translator on the web. I’ve tried Romanian, Slovenian, and Serbian translators and none of them can extract any meaning from it. Can anyone reading this tell me what it says?
