    The skipaway vortex

    Because in Taiwan the guy who does your checkup also changes the oil in your Daewoo while you're peeing in a cup.

    That sounds convenient!
    Blog is back. Get it while it still exists!

    Latest post from 11/13/18: 9 Amazing Facts About Lions that Will Shock - I'll admit, I kind of phoned this one. But the lion facts are 100% real and the Lion King images are 100% without permission.

    That is pretty racist, and the part that mixed up different countries made it more so. Way more Americans drive Korean cars than Taiwanese.

    From my observation the reason American health exams are expensive due to the operation model being 19th century. The tool utilization rate is horrible, so the charge has to be super high. And then you add the typical bureaucracy on top of that.

    My statement is still true in per capita terms.

    Do you believe in God?

    Nobody cares about Taiwan, likely because of your frequent comparisons and shared anecdotes about it.
    So where's all the mad rappers at? It's like a jungle in this habitat.

    Again, pretty racist.

    You really shouldn't take your personal hatred of me out on a group of people that you don't really know. Call me names as much as you want. Human trash or whatever worse you can think of. I am actually no where close to a typical Taiwanese, so insulting Taiwan doesn't really insult me.

    I talk about China, Japan, or other countries a lot also, but you don't seem to be targeting those, probably because you think Taiwan is the one that I most identify with and you can hurt me by hurting that. I think you hurt yourself most by doing that.

    Maybe you are just not in the right state due to personal issues at this moment, so people will forgive you easier because of that. Don't make it a habit though.

    Against Taiwanese obviously. You tried to state as if Taiwan health care service is horrible, and you implied that Taiwanese drove Daewoo, which is typically considered something bad in Taiwan ( it's both a Korean car and an American car! how much worse can it be?). And then you said nobody cares about Taiwan.

    I don't know if you genuinely don't see that, or you are more racist than I thought. Or you are more ignorant than I thought.

    I'm not up on Taiwanese culture, and certainly not on any belief that Daewoo is somehow a dig on the people of Taiwan, but I'm deeply offended that you accuse me of racism toward anyone and I'd appreciate it if you'd retract that statement. I am of sound mind, and your assumptions of the intention of my posts are so incredibly wrong that I can only hope you're joking.
