Wow, congrats Nick and Bill! If thats not the biggest growth market on the planet, I don’t know what is…
Good luck and may the future be expanding for you… http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/26/26_26_1.gif
The problem is…after doing one of these inspections…an hour later…you feel like you have to do another.
kinda like the “all you can eat buffet?”
I guess you know they can tell who I am in the picture.
Thanks for the plug.
**Real Chinese Translations That Didn’t Quite Work (Well Almost) **
The name Coca-Cola in China was first rendered as Ku-kou-ko-le. Unfortunately, the Coke company did not discover until after thousands of signs had been printed that the phrase means “Bite the wax tadpole” or “Female horse stuffed with wax” depending on the dialect.
Coke then researched 40,000 Chinese characters and found a close phonetic equivalent, “Ke-kou-ke-le,” which can be loosely translated as “happiness in the mouth.”
In Taiwan, the translation of the Pepsi slogan “Come alive with the Pepsi Generation” came out as “Pepsi will bring your ancestors back from the dead.”
Also in Chinese, the Kentucky Fried Chicken slogan “Finger- lickin’ good” came out as “Eat your fingers off.”
The once popular phrase “We Speak House” translated as “I laugh at your house from my grave”, today in China they just say… NACHI. :mrgreen:
Great setup and punch line. ROTFLMAO.

Thanks Paul, I forgot about the cap on membership.
But hey, there are so many other things beyond membership that could happen in this gigantic emerging economy…
The 10,000 cap is and always has been only on N. American members (the sum of U.S. and Canada) as we already have 31,000 members worldwide.
I knew there was a catch there somewhere.
I can see it now… Chinese inspectors, please join soon, as our membership will be capped at 1,000,000!
Wendy, explain how that is a “catch.” The cap has not changed.
I just noticed that you and Wendy almost have the same amount of “posts”

When you or whomever announced there would be a cap on NACHI membership, there was no mention as I recall, that it was only a 10k cap on US membership.
Yeah Frank, I’m a chatterbox. But you guys will have to learn how to live without me pretty soon. I’m moving into a house just down the road that doesn’t get high speed internet. I figured I better get all my posting done now.
Congrats to planet NACHI.
Are you going to change the name NATIONAL TO WORLDWIDE?
That would make us WACHI.
