Edgar Allan Poe vs. Bad Translator

*Blows dust off journal*

So, I found out about Bad Translator recently, and I decided to run some Edgar Allan Poe quotes through it.
All are set for Bing Translator, 35 translations, and random order.

"To observe attentively is to remember distinctly."
Becomes: "On the right side of the screen."

"And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all."
Becomes: "These two proposals. (D) graphics, darkness and death."

"Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!"
Quoth the Raven, "Nevermore.""
Becomes: "So to get? Hello... Not sang"

"The best chess-player in Christendom may be little more than the best player of chess; but proficiency in whist implies capacity for success in all these more important undertakings where mind struggles with mind."
Becomes: "The players can play better trend stories, Ajay. T-head and head."

"The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge."
Becomes: "Hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers. Dr. Chomtisut I and vowed revenge."

"For the love of God Montresor!"
Becomes: "I do like it. ..."

"I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity."
Becomes: "You don't have to worry about."

"Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme,
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells."
Becomes: "Time travel, Your profile, including sports tintinabolishan."

"Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! — tear up the planks! — here, here! — it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
Becomes: "Not good. Ill say that gender will have time to think about it or not. Board of Directors And as part of the eyes. When it is well."

"It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee"
Becomes: "Anna Beiern shark, maybe, what you do not know is King."

And, finally, though not actually from Poe: "Sleep. Those little slices of death. How I loathe them."
Becomes: "The dream is dead. The Hat"
