This magnificent hand painted kramer portrait cost me $30, managed to get $10 back because of the shoddy likeness.

2018-06-11 16:11:57 UTC

it definitely has a distinctive look to it

2018-06-11 16:32:07 UTC

I dont think thats kramer

2018-06-11 16:32:21 UTC

Think some greasy wop is missing a grave portrait

2018-06-11 16:32:56 UTC

@Mr. G so close though

2018-06-11 19:42:35 UTC

thats definitely a kramer outfit

2018-06-11 19:42:49 UTC

but he looks more like ben stiller

2018-06-11 19:42:58 UTC

@kaetaa are you alive?

2018-06-11 20:22:11 UTC

Yeah in LA

2018-06-11 20:22:20 UTC

Thanks for looking out

2018-06-11 20:22:26 UTC

Cat survived too

chinks are so ridiculous man

2018-06-13 07:10:57 UTC

@porco the amex black card is meant to do things other than just ordinary purchases

2018-06-13 07:11:29 UTC

apparently... someone shat their pants? who knew big spenders needed big diapers

2018-06-13 10:56:37 UTC

I really want a centurion card but the annual fee is $7500?

2018-06-13 10:57:33 UTC

u r not even out of high school yet lmfao

2018-06-13 10:57:54 UTC

just get a fake one if u want to impress ur gay friends

2018-06-13 10:58:00 UTC

im sure dapple can fix you one

2018-06-13 10:58:43 UTC

First off
Fake credit cards are borderline useless and gay
Second
I need to spend half a million to get a business card <:blobthinkingeyes:427568214579609601>

2018-06-13 10:58:53 UTC

ive been on a capital one card for the past year

2018-06-13 10:58:58 UTC

just to build up credit

2018-06-13 10:59:04 UTC

it's working

2018-06-13 10:59:31 UTC

the only reason why i like the idea is because of rewards like airline miles

2018-06-13 10:59:34 UTC

Imma do that, im thinking of getting a card with incasso, 0% int

2018-06-13 10:59:46 UTC

you wont get 0% right off the bat

2018-06-13 11:00:00 UTC

you'll start off with something 30% interest

2018-06-13 11:00:11 UTC

pay it off on time and you wont get charged

2018-06-13 11:00:24 UTC

you should pay it off on time anyway if you dont want to fuck your credit score

2018-06-13 11:01:07 UTC

Nah they charge 0% here if you let them cash within 14/21 days on some cards

2018-06-13 11:01:28 UTC

can you rewrite that in english please

2018-06-13 11:01:34 UTC

Mostly going to use it for insured online purchases

2018-06-13 11:01:51 UTC

it's 0% if you pay off on time on all cards if you pay back on time

2018-06-13 11:01:57 UTC

within 30 days

2018-06-13 11:02:11 UTC

but it's technically still a 30% interest card

2018-06-13 11:02:20 UTC

In english:
If you have set up incasso (auto withdraw from bank) you pay 0% on the purchase

2018-06-13 11:02:35 UTC

so it's basically just like paying it back on time

2018-06-13 11:02:45 UTC

the 30% is if you dont

2018-06-13 11:02:46 UTC

If you forget to put money in the bank its a staggering 27% on starters

2018-06-13 11:02:47 UTC

Yes

2018-06-13 11:02:51 UTC

that's what i mean

2018-06-13 11:02:59 UTC

I am not going to do that

2018-06-13 11:03:00 UTC

it's not a 0% interest card then

2018-06-13 11:03:06 UTC

it's 27% APR

2018-06-13 11:03:28 UTC

Pay the moment after you bought something

2018-06-13 11:03:37 UTC

(((Credit shifu here)))

2018-06-13 11:04:45 UTC

youll get the nicer cards after a year or two on a shitter ~20% APR card

2018-06-13 11:05:27 UTC

Zucht, I want a amex but its useless here with mostly maestro and other methods in asia

2018-06-13 11:07:19 UTC

i hope the british airways ones will be good

2018-06-13 11:07:24 UTC

something tells me they're not

2018-06-13 11:08:01 UTC

they've been charging ripoff premium prices for subpar flight service

2018-06-13 11:08:44 UTC

I have to wait until 21 to get some proper insurance for cards too

2018-06-13 11:10:21 UTC

Wait aren't you better of booking budget airline flights then paying premium for transaction fees @transience?

2018-06-13 11:10:33 UTC

Or whatever fees the card has

2018-06-13 11:10:35 UTC

scratch what i said

2018-06-13 11:11:01 UTC

1 avios points per 1 pound spending, need 100,000 avios to go to thailand
no thanks

2018-06-13 11:11:05 UTC

anyway <#189467888657235970>

2018-06-13 11:11:22 UTC

Oh yeah
Ching chong

2018-06-13 11:49:06 UTC

@porco Post more chink food

2018-06-13 12:20:49 UTC

Chink food is pretty good, think this is dry pot or something. Just pick out meat amd veg amd they fry it in chili oil of varying spice. Great for long trips, cant fall asleep at the wheel if our stomach is on fire

2018-06-13 15:23:54 UTC

even einstein shat on chinks

2018-06-13 16:28:05 UTC

based einstein

2018-06-13 16:28:09 UTC

truly /ourguy/

2018-06-13 16:31:47 UTC

anyone who has read anything about einstein knows he was cautious for everyone

2018-06-13 16:56:18 UTC

damn good guy einstein

2018-06-13 16:56:22 UTC

thats pretty funny

2018-06-13 16:57:07 UTC

"see him writing of the Chinese that “even those reduced to working like horses never give the impression of conscious suffering. A peculiar herd-like nation [ … ] often more like automatons than people.” He later adds, in Rosenkranz’s words, “a healthy dose of extreme misogyny” to his xenophobia with the observation: “I noticed how little difference there is between men and women; I don’t understand what kind of fatal attraction Chinese women possess which enthrals the corresponding men to such an extent that they are incapable of defending themselves against the formidable blessing of offspring”.

2018-06-13 16:57:09 UTC

god damn

2018-06-13 16:57:12 UTC

nothing has changed

2018-06-13 16:57:26 UTC

how is LA treating you?

2018-06-13 16:57:51 UTC

there so much traffic im sick of it already haha

2018-06-13 16:57:56 UTC

but everything else is kind of what i expected

2018-06-13 16:58:05 UTC

we see so much of LA in tv and movies its hard to be "surprised" by anything

2018-06-13 16:58:12 UTC

but its still been enjoyable

2018-06-13 16:59:03 UTC

we head back to my home on saturday, so just a few more days of vacation, but its been nice

2018-06-13 16:59:08 UTC

its nice to see a blue sky again

2018-06-13 16:59:18 UTC

in china even if there isnt thatm uch pollution, the giant buildings block the sky

2018-06-13 17:11:28 UTC

I dont understand chinese - they ilegally access the outside world internet by using VPN - access youtube - and then immediately just look up their own country?

2018-06-13 17:11:42 UTC

they go to videos about china to defend china and bash other countries

2018-06-13 17:11:51 UTC

is this how they use their VPN?

2018-06-13 17:12:19 UTC

theyve been so brainwashed to believe that any negativity should be met with hostility

2018-06-13 17:12:56 UTC

same with russians

2018-06-13 17:13:02 UTC

and turks

2018-06-13 17:13:22 UTC

actually can probably be applied to any country/group of countries

2018-06-13 17:13:54 UTC

but russians and turks are the cases I see most often

2018-06-13 17:37:29 UTC

Maybe it's their way of protecting themselves?

2018-06-13 17:37:55 UTC

Get catched for using a vpn, show that you only did to defend glorious Khina?

2018-06-14 01:27:33 UTC

One of the comments said "I'm not a nationalist...I just don't understand how a Chinese person could bash their own country"

2018-06-14 03:42:06 UTC

cause its shit

2018-06-14 03:42:08 UTC

🤔

2018-06-14 03:42:25 UTC

TFW Chinese tourist in thailand

2018-06-14 03:43:13 UTC

they got those dumb tour things that they take them to

2018-06-14 03:43:41 UTC

which is like a massive jewellery store or a bedsheet factory

2018-06-14 03:45:34 UTC

I like industrial tours

2018-06-14 03:49:59 UTC

nah fuck that

2018-06-14 03:50:23 UTC

and afterwards they have sales people following you

2018-06-14 03:50:28 UTC

fuck that

2018-06-14 08:22:16 UTC

@plasticsword they take them in those because they're barred everywhere else lol

2018-06-14 08:23:33 UTC

Can't take them to heritage sites because they'll take everything in sight as a souvenir

2018-06-14 08:23:53 UTC

They ignore every don't touch sign

2018-06-14 08:42:06 UTC

that's a bit much

2018-06-14 08:42:38 UTC

I mean they are bad but they're not banned from heritage sites

2018-06-14 08:44:42 UTC

apparently people actually make a lot of money from chinks despite their frugality

2018-06-14 08:46:47 UTC

@plasticsword I didn't mean they're banned from heritage site just what happens there

2018-06-14 08:48:02 UTC

I saw two busses full of them turned down at our resort hotel

2018-06-14 08:48:15 UTC

They genuinely cost hotels stars

2018-06-14 08:48:54 UTC

Once it's known they let in Chinese tourists the other tourists stay away

2018-06-14 08:49:22 UTC

heh

2018-06-14 08:54:54 UTC

im not even fucking suprised

2018-06-14 08:55:10 UTC

chinese tourists are weird and annoying

2018-06-14 08:55:36 UTC

"yo i came to your buffet restaurant but i want noodles and free unlimited hot water so i can make my own instant noodles/soups"

2018-06-14 08:55:42 UTC

#bannedforlife

2018-06-14 08:57:29 UTC

you are in motherfucking finnish traditional restaurant what servers homefood buffet for tourists what want to experience it

2018-06-14 08:57:40 UTC

and you fucking want noodles with that shit ???

2018-06-14 08:58:22 UTC

also its fucking nighrmate to actualy plan any tourist tours with them specialy if it required fucking preparation on their part

2018-06-14 08:58:55 UTC

for average tourist you can tell "the tour starts X place Y time so be _ready_ with gear"

2018-06-14 09:00:31 UTC

chinese tourist "i came without jacket (-30 outside) we are supposed to go for skiing tour in local park, i dont have my skis yet rented,nor helmet,nor warm clothes, oh where is the free snacks, also i came fucking 10 minutes late and everyone has been waitting for my stupid faggot ass"

2018-06-14 09:01:26 UTC

lets not forget that its planners fault whole thing for not infor---READING FUCKING OUT LOUD multipage leaflets what were shared to everyone

2018-06-14 09:01:52 UTC

JUST HOW FUCKING THICK IS YOUR STUPID SKULL???!!??"

2018-06-14 09:02:35 UTC

ohh... and when you see wild moose or god forbid bear in national park... dont you fucking start screaming like riot was going on and taking pictures... with fucking flash on

2018-06-14 09:03:44 UTC

there is fucking companies that wont deal with any chinese or asian group of tourists due how fucking awfull they are

2018-06-14 09:04:12 UTC

they just inform hotel "we know we are one of better tourist traps but keep your fucking chinks away from our establishment

2018-06-14 09:05:09 UTC

then they wonder why they are not allowed to drive cars around here (nor rent them without valid id..)

2018-06-14 09:05:41 UTC

and older gentlemen who come to hunt... need to be trained for fucking guns first due they shoot their own toes off otherwise (has happened)

2018-06-14 09:06:44 UTC

they are more than welcome here by most loca----business men and hotels who dont live in 200km diameter around lapland

2018-06-14 09:07:18 UTC

and to be honest they dont even bring that much money compared how much work they are

2018-06-14 09:14:26 UTC

and dont get me even startted how filthy animals they are in their rooms

2018-06-14 09:14:58 UTC

and yes incenses can trigger automated fire-alarms

2018-06-14 09:15:53 UTC

and no it does not help to keep door to hallway open .. actualy its even worse due now everyone needs to fucking smell that shit and try not to puke

2018-06-14 09:53:31 UTC

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS csg.tervys_sanity

2018-06-14 09:57:41 UTC

oh boy id have tons of stories about tourists on lapland but i drop them occassionaly here

2018-06-14 09:58:02 UTC

but hungry me decided to rant slightly about those animals

2018-06-14 13:01:29 UTC

Tldr

2018-06-14 13:01:40 UTC

Xinks were a mistake?

2018-06-14 13:07:40 UTC

Is this the start of new Tervy rants?

2018-06-14 13:07:43 UTC

because i love it

2018-06-14 13:14:48 UTC

he’s channeling his inner kaetaa

2018-06-14 14:55:16 UTC

@Tervy the trick is to make a chinatown in the middle of the finnish wilderness

2018-06-14 14:55:25 UTC

Then they will just go there an never leave until thier trip is over

2018-06-15 11:27:24 UTC

I'm curious. As a Japanese who travels occasionally (I went to New Zealand last February), how do Europeans view us?

Are we just "Chinese tourists" like all the rest?

[I try to be polite, attentive to cultural practice, and prepared but that's just me. idk even what regular Japanese are like.]

2018-06-15 11:52:57 UTC

for me you all look the same <:downs:355737951918882846>
but its down to how you act

2018-06-15 12:31:22 UTC

For me, it's really easy to spot the difference between Chinese and fjapanese when travelling

2018-06-15 12:31:49 UTC

If they are being loud, obnoxious, and doing semi poor looking behavior it's generally Chinese

2018-06-15 12:32:06 UTC

If you can't even notice they are there, and get actually excited at things, it's Japanese

2018-06-15 12:32:11 UTC

If they are being loud, obnoxious, and doing semi poor looking behavior it's generally Chinese

2018-06-15 13:00:39 UTC

When I was a kid, I used to live in a small town that was really popular to Japanese tourists for a reason that I've never understood. Japanese tourists were cool, just taking an incredible amount of pictures and spending a lot of money in restaurants / hotels / souvenir shops etc

2018-06-15 13:01:33 UTC

Now after a few decades, the Japanese are gone and the Chinese came. The Chinese destroy everything. They let children shit in our lake, shout at each other all night etc

2018-06-15 13:01:45 UTC

I'd take Japanese tourists over Chinese tourists any day

2018-06-15 13:02:04 UTC

I think Japanese are the best kind of tourists

2018-06-15 13:02:23 UTC

The bottom is made by the Chinese, the British and the American tourists

2018-06-15 13:28:13 UTC

agree entirely

2018-06-15 13:28:26 UTC

tfw worst of both

2018-06-15 13:28:30 UTC

chinese and britbong

2018-06-15 13:29:40 UTC

My last experience with jap tourist was 2 old ladies in Amsterdam, we guided them to Van Gogh musem or something like that

2018-06-15 13:30:01 UTC

They were funny

2018-06-15 13:42:55 UTC

If they are being loud, obnoxious, and doing semi poor looking behavior it's generally Chinese " indeed whatvkseetaa saids

2018-06-15 13:43:04 UTC

Japs are easybto spot due mannerism

2018-06-15 13:44:41 UTC

After looking at Japs for a while you can spot then by their clothing choices too

2018-06-15 13:45:20 UTC

I'm not so good at it yet but my gf often knows Japs by their clothes and the way they walk

2018-06-15 14:24:15 UTC

Trying to write in hurry ∆ abomination

2018-06-15 18:52:40 UTC

The japs I met were good buds to drink with
The japs I see usually behave so it's ok.
Chinks are infamous and fairly easy to spot beside the language so they usually don't get approached by Germans unless heavy yellow fever.

2018-06-15 19:37:37 UTC

Japs are very socially aware

2018-06-15 19:38:02 UTC

It's part of how they grew as a society

2018-06-15 19:38:18 UTC

They've always had hierarchies to respond to and it still shows nowadays

2018-06-15 21:40:22 UTC

it doesnt really help that chinks had their social norms and individuality essentially wiped out by the ccp

2018-06-15 22:08:13 UTC

Yes, Japs have always been taught to obey, chinks on the other hand have had the NSDAP treatment

2018-06-15 22:10:04 UTC

Or, well, NSDAP + CPSU treatment, I guess

2018-06-16 10:56:07 UTC

@Alfadir let's not post animal cruelty in here, thanks

2018-06-16 11:08:55 UTC

Sure

2018-06-16 21:34:54 UTC

@plasticsword I can see this going real well

2018-06-16 21:35:16 UTC

this is how you start a war on drugs

where in Thailand?

2018-06-18 07:55:10 UTC

I've decided I wanna get a Chinese friend to learn more about what's going in inside the country socially, politically, and economically. Is interpals.com a good place to look?

2018-06-18 08:54:09 UTC

I'm chinese and was in china for a year

2018-06-18 08:54:12 UTC

and it's terrible

2018-06-18 08:54:19 UTC

absolutely terrible

2018-06-18 08:55:00 UTC

but honestly it's 50/50 that believe the bullshit

2018-06-18 08:55:28 UTC

the people that believe in the bullshit, think they live in the best country ever and it's the safest and most well run country ever

2018-06-18 08:56:27 UTC

the people that don't think the goverment is good, think they can't really do much so they don't think about it

2018-06-18 08:59:10 UTC

@(import (srfi 151)) go to china and make a friend

2018-06-18 09:10:09 UTC

@(import (srfi 151)) just scroll to the top of this channel and read everything

2018-06-18 09:10:21 UTC

especially kaetaa rants

2018-06-18 09:10:44 UTC

talking about @kaetaa, are you still in LA?

2018-06-18 09:11:40 UTC

his walltext has nothing to do with economic or political developments

2018-06-18 09:37:04 UTC

there is nothing needed to be learnt on china that isnt already available tbh

2018-06-18 09:37:10 UTC

people in china know less

2018-06-18 09:37:34 UTC

most people in china aren't really political

2018-06-18 09:40:19 UTC

true
