It's worse than I thought. He cast the curse multiple times. Now you will all need to buy multiple counter-enchantments from me to keep your dicks from falling off.

I SAW this guy on CNN and thought there must be some different kind of sign language I'd never seen before.
That's international primetime trolling.  Well done.

I understood him just fine.

He was clearly asking for assistance in moving Nelson Mandela's $12,000,000 out of the country.

I'm going for it, before anyone else catches on!!!

My first thought was funny. Like an old Saturday Night Live type of funny.

Then I wondered what could motivate him? Is he a struggling comic looking for his 15 minutes?

Then I remembered Sadat.

There are a whole Lotta questions that need to be answered. I have to imagine there are some uncomfortable security folks right about now.

Definitely not ASL. He also used different signs when signing the same word(world, for example) a few times, that is incredibly odd if the word is used in the same context every time. While it is possible that he was interpreting to a specific deaf group in a language I'm unfamiliar with, he didn't use any well used international signs you would expect at an event like this. Finally, he just didn't act like an interpretor. Interpretors use their faces a lot when signing in order to convey the message and mood properly. He didn't do that, instead he looked around in between sentences.  I'm gonna guess he's just a world class BS artist.

No questions need to be answered.

This "leader" put a sign translator next to him because it looks more "official" and impressive to have someone next to you.  So it's likely they just told some peon to stand there and mimic the movements he's seen in recordings from other big leaders.

It's all about power and association for these small, no-name countries.

So, as likely as it is that the guy was trolling, I feel obligated to point out that there are a LOT of different sign languages.  IIRC there was a human trafficking thing a few years ago involving deaf-mute Mexicans where the cops had to find someone who could interpret in their sign language, which was not at all like ASL.  This might have been the one:

Video phones are real.  They are basically webcams connected to a stand alone screen that turns on when you receive a call(you connect that to lights in your house. The lights flash when you get a call). Think of Skype, or the new video chat abilities on smart phones. Same basic premise.

I'm familiar with videophones, was using Tandbergs before I'd ever heard of Skype - but was unfamiliar with just calling them "telephones" and how common they are to be used by the deaf - and to where both parties on this interview would have the same compatible tech.

This is very true. While some are closely related to others(ASL is very similar to Russian and French IIRC), many are as different as English is to Chinese.

There's one service (Sorensen Communications) that is essentially a webcam and processing box that plugs into the TV and the internet.  They also employ ASL interpreters so the deaf person can call the interpreter via 'video phone' and then the interpreter can call a hearing person for the deaf person.

Bohr is also forgetting the possibility that the interpreter was sitting with the deaf person talking to AP on the phone and interpreting 'live'.

Sorry, I misread. What it sounds like is that the AP might have actually called via telephone, and spoke to an interpreter who signed to the individual. That individual then either signed back to the interpreter(who then relayed the message), or the individual was actually on the physical phone with the AP and vocally responded to the AP after the interpreter relayed the question.

If the individual can speak spoken English(not uncommon amongst those who become deaf several years as children/adults), the latter is most common. Video phones aren't all that common outside of the deaf community, at least that I know of.

What about literally having a human interpreter for the call? Someone speaking by phone to AP, signing the questions and then speaking the responses back to AP. For a reporter, that would be the easiest and most reliable way.
