    Interesting Facts

    Since the start of Miui we have all gone to Miui.com and used google to translate it for us. I have seen many people that have quoted the "Grab the sofa" and others. Well this made me wonder what sofa meant in Chinese.

    Well first I found out that sofa is 沙发

    I found this excellent thread between a Chinese person and a person who i assume teaches Chinese to English speakers due to his questions. Here is a quote of that thread.
    The concept of "grabbing the 沙发" does exist in English, and it'll usually result in a post that reads "Hey, I'm the first to reply ". But there isn't an English equivalence for "沙发"
    Here is the thread for more info and some Chinese thread talk.

    So its just there way of saying first that does not translate well to English. I had assumed this but was never sure and when I found out I thought I would share my find.

    Also if you look at the post counts in the upper right hand of each post on the first one it says 2楼 沙发 or 2, sofa.

    One more day till week 22 release!

    what a wasted opportunity to post "Grab the sofa!"
    OG_Droid --> Bionic --> SGS4 (Verizon). Too lazy to update signature every time I flash something, so....

    BIG THANKS to every developer and anyone who's answered my or others questions!!
