Mission Impossible - And a German Consultant Too
Ethan tries to send a message to Max via a German Usenet group called "Die Buch von Job Diskussionsgruppe." This is an incorrect translation; "Job" becomes "Hiob" in German, and no "von" is used. So the discussion group should be named "Die Buch Hiob Diskussionsgruppe."

If this person is an expert on German grammar, it's a shame they didn't know that Buch is actually neuta, and should be das Buch not die Buch. Never mind.....
