well, both sides were fucked in the head. Mainland RoC before PRC was a bunch of goons who didnt do anything outside of major cities

2017-04-28 01:37:47 UTC

left the people in the styx to rot

2017-04-28 01:37:52 UTC

stix*

2017-04-28 11:31:36 UTC

if anyone is interested in Chinese history there is a cool uni lecture on podcast addict broken up into 8 episodes that go from dynastic china to modern day china which gives a bit of insight, is interesting

2017-04-28 11:32:08 UTC

its called 'introduction to china' - latrobe uni

2017-04-28 11:55:00 UTC

i live near a latrobe university lol

2017-04-28 12:14:17 UTC

in melbourne?

2017-04-28 12:14:44 UTC

if so it is the same latrobe uni, some lecturer uploaded his stuff as a podcast, is a good course it seems

2017-04-28 12:19:39 UTC

yeah down plenty road

2017-04-28 12:21:27 UTC

nice man i used to live in melb, now bris

2017-04-28 12:47:49 UTC

I love China YouTubers. With the exception of cmilk and Winston, everyone's channel is only up for a short time talking about how much they love China, then they do a video "why Im leaving China "

2017-04-28 12:48:05 UTC

It's always the same story.

2017-04-28 12:48:56 UTC

The honeymoon stage ends and they finally see China for it's become - unfortunately.

2017-04-28 12:49:26 UTC

Don't get me wrong, there's some stuff I love about China that we could never do in USA because we lack cheap and massive labor force.

2017-04-28 13:45:22 UTC

you really got to be Chinese to understand china

2017-04-28 15:41:23 UTC

@kaetaa why dont you like cmilk and winston?

2017-04-28 18:02:35 UTC

He didn't say that, he said they're the only two who haven't left

2017-04-29 01:18:41 UTC

I like cmilk. Winston seems a bit pretentious to me lately.

2017-04-29 01:19:19 UTC

When I started watching cmilk he had 10k subs. Now he's at 100k. He's blowing up faster than Winston , will probably surpass him eventually

2017-04-29 02:11:46 UTC

btw, chinas standard for video output is STILL VGA. You can find it on every device still (video cards, monitors, tvs, laptops etc)

2017-04-29 02:12:00 UTC

they have hdmi and dp and all that, of course, but they still use VGA the most.

2017-04-29 04:19:51 UTC

all about that dvi boi

2017-04-29 14:02:46 UTC

there was a dude called lowai (SP?) who ran a channel about living in china, being married to a girl from there

2017-04-29 14:02:52 UTC

it was pretty interesting to watch

2017-04-29 14:03:55 UTC

he talked about the disparity between the asian countries, mainly how china and japan have it near impossible ever to be a citizen through marriage

2017-04-29 14:04:05 UTC

or the amount of paperwork needed for him to even work

2017-04-29 14:04:51 UTC

Unlike Taiwan or Hong Kong, where if you get married, its a long afternoon at a city building to become a resident alien

2017-04-29 14:59:22 UTC

yeah youre thinking of Laowhy86

2017-04-29 14:59:29 UTC

aka Cmilk

2017-04-29 15:02:04 UTC

I follow cmilk religiously. He's a cool guy and like super nice about everything. I've learned a good bit from his channel.

2017-04-29 15:02:57 UTC

I like winston too but I feel like his videos are a bit long and full of him talking about things that aren't directly to the point but he's still cool and informative.

2017-04-29 15:04:06 UTC

>tfw cmilk senpai liked your joke in his stream

2017-04-30 04:30:24 UTC

For whatever reason China never relaxed its immigration policy

2017-04-30 04:30:49 UTC

I remember my family telling how they lived with a shitload of indonesian chinese refugees in the guangzhou countryside

2017-04-30 04:31:00 UTC

refugees only in the sense that they were never granted citizenship

2017-04-30 04:58:14 UTC

those are illegal immigrants

2017-04-30 05:36:52 UTC

i'd doubt that mattered in the 1950's-1960's

2017-04-30 12:23:23 UTC

Not like illegal immigration changed much then and now

2017-05-01 03:49:43 UTC

On my way to shenzhen and then Hong Kong for some MRI stuff there

2017-05-01 04:45:23 UTC

2017-05-01 10:20:10 UTC

2017-05-01 10:21:05 UTC

2017-05-01 10:21:12 UTC

for everywhere

2017-05-01 10:22:04 UTC

buses are annoying since you need to tell the person where you stop

2017-05-01 10:33:12 UTC

You ever speak shitty Japanese just to troll the Chinas?

2017-05-01 11:45:15 UTC

2017-05-01 23:09:12 UTC

the food is shit

2017-05-01 23:09:29 UTC

the only thing they got going for them is the beer and the pub culture

2017-05-01 23:09:37 UTC

besides that, nuke it form orbit

2017-05-02 00:17:50 UTC

I miss pubs

2017-05-02 02:17:45 UTC

I'm going to Taiwan in October, any big suggestions ?

2017-05-02 03:37:27 UTC

Taiwan is traversable in a day, it's a small island

2017-05-02 03:37:51 UTC

with high speed rail

2017-05-02 04:01:57 UTC

I'll be there for like 4 days.

2017-05-02 06:43:42 UTC

there's shit to do there

2017-05-02 20:30:15 UTC

Best deepnet chink chan?

2017-05-02 20:30:18 UTC

Are there any?

2017-05-02 20:30:26 UTC

onions

2017-05-02 20:30:56 UTC

Good question

2017-05-02 20:31:19 UTC

I'm pretty sure 8chan has an onion mirror

2017-05-02 20:31:55 UTC

Just search 'chan' on ahmia

2017-05-03 00:50:27 UTC

8chan mirror sucks 4chan onion site is still better

2017-05-03 00:51:18 UTC

but they are both shit

2017-05-03 02:01:02 UTC

I'm going to buy an engagement ring in HK any suggestions

2017-05-03 02:51:48 UTC

2017-05-03 05:32:16 UTC

Xiaomi meme ring

2017-05-03 06:50:18 UTC

2017-05-03 10:25:56 UTC

Met an Indian guy who's lived in HK for 37 years

2017-05-03 10:26:07 UTC

Says hk used to be so comfortable and affordable

2017-05-03 10:26:17 UTC

Once China started opening up, they ruined HK

2017-05-03 10:26:29 UTC

Started buying the real estate making it expensive, taking all the factory jobs

2017-05-03 10:27:09 UTC

Now it's a super expensive place to live, and really hard for smaller businesses. Says 90s Hong Kong was incredible place to live, wishes I could have seen it

2017-05-03 10:27:24 UTC

Everything was so bright and exciting with opportunities everywhere

2017-05-03 10:27:50 UTC

Once China started growing in early 2000s, and people moving their factories to China, it got hard

2017-05-03 10:28:16 UTC

Nobody talked about China in the 80s. Said nobody cared. They were insignificant

2017-05-03 10:28:19 UTC

ye hk has a massive indian population

2017-05-03 10:28:27 UTC

indonesian too

2017-05-03 10:28:36 UTC

Yeah, he was the guy making me a suit.

2017-05-03 10:28:41 UTC

Got to small talking

2017-05-03 10:29:12 UTC

I remember HK in the 90s

2017-05-03 10:29:23 UTC

was kinda messy

2017-05-03 10:29:23 UTC

I remember all the movies

2017-05-03 10:29:26 UTC

At the time

2017-05-03 10:29:46 UTC

a lot of homeless people on the streets

2017-05-03 10:30:06 UTC

you know how HK has the massive bridges

2017-05-03 10:30:23 UTC

there used to be like homeless colonys under there

2017-05-03 10:30:46 UTC

I remember that was when I had my first communist thought

2017-05-03 10:31:03 UTC

I thought if everyone shared money then there wouldnt be homeless people

2017-05-03 10:31:18 UTC

this was when I was 4/5 years old

2017-05-04 02:06:06 UTC

Communism certainly is a child's perception

2017-05-04 02:06:39 UTC

communism is based, state capitalism is scum

2017-05-04 02:07:09 UTC

/me slinks away

2017-05-04 15:58:07 UTC

@kaetaa ni๐Ÿ…ฑ๐Ÿ…ฑa when you gonna make another laowai vlogger channel
also how are vpns right now, you doing good?

2017-05-04 15:58:29 UTC

also, what's your nationality/country of birth?

2017-05-04 17:16:00 UTC

good grief

2017-05-04 17:16:43 UTC

meh

2017-05-04 17:16:54 UTC

not like this doesnt happen anywhere else

2017-05-04 17:18:48 UTC

I doubt tossing babbies is a common occurrence in any country

2017-05-04 17:21:22 UTC

it is not uncommon?

2017-05-04 17:21:39 UTC

maybe not as malicious as the chinese one

2017-05-04 17:23:31 UTC

can't read cheeky breeky

2017-05-04 17:23:54 UTC

woman threw small child into a room, it almost died

2017-05-04 22:27:04 UTC

classic china man :ห†)

2017-05-05 00:54:13 UTC

try and post a civilised country

2017-05-05 05:18:39 UTC

@onoderaSecurity I'm not big on being a personality, so probably never.vpns are always up and down. Some days I can watch 1080p YouTube, other times I can't even load up Gmail. I'm from USA.

2017-05-05 05:54:19 UTC

what VPN are you using?

2017-05-05 08:23:08 UTC

I use express. It's seems to be the best of the three I've tried

2017-05-05 08:23:19 UTC

Atleast for use in China

2017-05-05 08:30:12 UTC

do you also us baidu?

2017-05-05 13:20:17 UTC
2017-05-05 13:20:32 UTC

Have you ever wanted to fly on a chink shit plane

2017-05-05 14:03:05 UTC

Could be good

2017-05-05 14:04:21 UTC

baidu is only good for chinks

2017-05-05 18:12:12 UTC

have you ever wanted to die from poor quality control? Now is your chance

2017-05-05 18:17:05 UTC

says most of the people who still use chinkshit phones with LIPO batteries in them

2017-05-05 18:19:20 UTC

There's a slight difference though.

2017-05-05 18:19:24 UTC

jokes on you all of my lithium comes from chile

2017-05-05 18:19:32 UTC

One of those things does not fight a battle against gravity at 10 000 ft.

2017-05-06 01:55:59 UTC

i want to sit on the chinese shinkansen, that looked like a real success

2017-05-06 01:56:44 UTC

also the chinese make jet fighters n shit so maybe theyve got a good shot

2017-05-06 15:20:31 UTC

ive gotten one. they are hecka cheap

2017-05-06 16:56:11 UTC

>without a happy ending

2017-05-06 16:56:12 UTC

Why?

2017-05-06 16:56:33 UTC

not everyone wants herpes on their dick

2017-05-06 18:21:33 UTC

Nothing turns me on like a 40 year old washed up asian hooker with a plastic bag ass stroking my dong

2017-05-07 19:41:51 UTC

what if it's a qt chinese trap

2017-05-08 08:57:05 UTC

Is serpentza /our guy/? I like his chink vlogs they are pretty chill

2017-05-08 10:08:13 UTC

As time as past I find him more insufferable lately

2017-05-08 10:08:19 UTC

He has good info though for sure

2017-05-08 10:08:56 UTC

I'm predicting that cmilk will surpass him in the next year .

2017-05-08 10:19:37 UTC

@fedora Yes and he seems an extremely honest dude. Not afraid to say what he feels about China or his own South Africa

2017-05-08 10:25:36 UTC

Thats what I noticed too

2017-05-08 10:55:59 UTC

whos cmilk

2017-05-08 13:00:41 UTC

I think there will be an epidemic in china soon

2017-05-08 13:00:50 UTC

a lot of people at work are getting ill

2017-05-08 13:00:56 UTC

some mainly of me

2017-05-08 20:26:41 UTC

the "I AM THE ORIGINAL CHINA VLOGGER" thing is a bit annoying

2017-05-08 20:27:28 UTC

i don't think "WELCOME TO THE RICE FIELDS MOTHER FUCKER" would be better

2017-05-08 20:59:58 UTC

@JHWH The first China vlogger to wear a suit in each of his vlogs**

2017-05-09 04:52:04 UTC

somehow he made wearing a suit China related

2017-05-09 11:17:18 UTC

@JHWH why? It's not as if he doesn't collab with other vloggers, or even mention it in the videos apart from the odd time in the intro. He uses it as branding especially considering he makes documentaries about china so I suppose it's needed to show people why they should watch them

2017-05-09 11:20:20 UTC

its presumptuousness. cant stand that. but as I said, apart from that, he seems alright

2017-05-09 11:20:30 UTC

oh well I didnt say that, but I thought it

2017-05-09 11:54:56 UTC

am I the only one who doesn't give a fuck what he's wearing?

2017-05-09 11:55:11 UTC

He's kind of made it into his "style", so good on him

2017-05-09 16:24:36 UTC

Question: Who are the people behind alibaba accounts?

2017-05-09 16:54:52 UTC

Which? The factories ?

2017-05-10 09:08:28 UTC

Alibaba is generally the actual manafacturers

2017-05-10 14:27:43 UTC

@JHWH @kaetaa he can be slightly insufferable from time to time and c-milk is much cuter

2017-05-10 14:28:39 UTC

but he's still a lad

2017-05-10 14:47:22 UTC

and is winston really the original laowai to vlog about china? or is that false

2017-05-11 05:02:09 UTC

I don't like winston that much

2017-05-11 05:02:56 UTC

if he were a chill out old dude in GZ, I wouldn't mind

2017-05-11 05:22:31 UTC

Just had my chink shit surgery. Didn't die

2017-05-11 05:23:12 UTC

The surgeon decided to take a bunch of pictures of me before and after the surgery when I was asleep, he thought it was np to show me and the people around me naked photos of me lying on a table looking like a corpse

2017-05-11 05:23:33 UTC

I hate these people.

2017-05-11 05:24:12 UTC

Winston deludes himself into thinking the people here are awesome, or he just lies to get more viewers and not piss off the Chinese .

2017-05-11 05:24:53 UTC

Of course, not everyone is a fuck stick, but a large majority.

2017-05-11 05:27:19 UTC

how much did you end up paying?

2017-05-11 05:27:58 UTC

Not including the 10,000 hkd I spent getting a special MRI in Hong Kong

2017-05-11 05:28:11 UTC

The surgery and related expenses was about 30,000 RMB

2017-05-11 05:28:35 UTC

I got the same thing in the US but was billed the same

2017-05-11 05:28:40 UTC

in USD

2017-05-11 05:28:46 UTC

But I have international insurance , so they will cover . Even the HK MRI

2017-05-11 05:28:59 UTC

Yeah, it's pretty cheap here

2017-05-11 05:29:00 UTC

had insurance so only $6,600 out of pocket

2017-05-11 05:29:29 UTC

Out of pocket I have to pay my travel and stay to Hong Kong, so maybe 2000 RMB

2017-05-11 05:29:34 UTC

Maybe more

2017-05-11 05:29:50 UTC

But if I wasn't a giant, I could have done it all here

2017-05-11 05:30:01 UTC

But my leg still hurts, so I'm not sure if it even worked yet

2017-05-11 05:30:26 UTC

huh

2017-05-11 05:30:37 UTC

discetomy and you still feel pain?

2017-05-11 05:32:59 UTC

also fun fact that docs didn't tell me, or maybe it's just my weak ass frame

2017-05-11 05:33:29 UTC

I can't carry anything heavier than 25lbs without feeling it. if it's 50lbs or so, then for sure it's all fucked up again

2017-05-11 05:34:43 UTC

You should have anything nerve irritation cleared after surgery for sure though

2017-05-11 05:49:08 UTC

They ended up not cutting the spine part for some reason

2017-05-11 05:49:12 UTC

Just "nerve decompression"

2017-05-11 05:49:45 UTC

I believe I had about half my spinal disc removed

2017-05-11 05:49:48 UTC

Hmm so you feel it when you carry heavy stuff?

2017-05-11 05:49:54 UTC

oh fuck yeah man

2017-05-11 05:49:57 UTC

Yeah that's what I wanted but they said I'm too young

2017-05-11 05:50:09 UTC

And they said the main cause is my mild scoliosis

2017-05-11 05:50:19 UTC

oh that's something entirely different

2017-05-11 05:50:58 UTC

Yeah but scoliosis surgery is way more invasive and expensive, didn't want to consider that . But I'm a pretty big guy, so maybe if I lose weight there would be less pressure on the nerve

When I lie down, it feels like my whole body is on that one part of my spine

chink surgeons (esp those who operate on foreign patients) are really good

that may be so, but the last two times I was in shanghai I had the british international hospital as an emergency contact

2017-05-11 10:51:36 UTC

I can't think of a bigger nightmare for me then having to have an operation done by a doctor who is not from Ireland, Britain or America

half of britbong doctors are pajeets

I didn't want to be racist and say preferably white

2017-05-11 10:53:45 UTC

I just don't trust Dr Nigeria or Dr India with their country specific qualification

lel

most of the guys at the britbong int hospital are actually chinks from hong kong

but they speak perfect english and are actually able to understand me

2017-05-11 10:54:56 UTC

what happened to you in shanghai?

in 2012 my meds got wet and I had to get new ones

I need a specific brand and pharmacies weren't reliable

2017-05-11 10:55:45 UTC

ah ok

it's so weird walking in there and hearing everyone speak english

huge amount of white employees too

2017-05-11 10:56:13 UTC

ye must be in shanghai

2017-05-11 10:56:22 UTC

thats super cool...

2017-05-11 10:59:19 UTC

actually shanghai would have a lot of very good health professionals i reckon

I was there for about two hours

2017-05-11 10:59:43 UTC

my friends gf is flying all the way to shanghai to get her eyelids done since it has the best eye surgeons there

2017-05-11 10:59:55 UTC

pretty stupid stuff

about half an hour waiting, half an hour waiting for them to grab the right meds, another fucking hour filling out paperwork

2017-05-11 11:02:13 UTC

how much did this all cost

36 euros because I had a travel insurance

most people in the waiting room were other foreigners

probably also why they're in pudong
