Then how isn't 4chan blocked
all I think 4chan banned asian isp
Also be me running MIUI8 on Android based xiaomeme. How much are they gunna root through my phone without me knowing
i saw a chinese gaming streamer browse reddit and there are subreddits with porn, or is the porn ban not that extreme
is it porn or just lewd images?
im asking you, i know little of chinese net censorship
they allow glamour shoots
but you don't get proper porn
It you have porn on your phone and I mean like dick in pussy kinda shit are they gunna confiscate your phone? Should I delete it all before going there?
this makes it sound like all is fine if you keep it to yourself
they dont go through your phone or anything extreme like that.
all the chinks look at porn too
its just blocked is all
just dont bring porn mags with you and its fine
Also at the airport now about 3~ hours till flight leaves
Oh shit big memewhere you staying
I'm visiting in Beijing rn
anyone here learning mandarin?
I need some suggestions to how to learn it
@Resident Shekelman I'm landing in Beijing. Will be there a little then flying to Chengdu. I'll stay in Beijing a couple days on my way home
@plasticsword I've been learning Mandarin for about 5 years now. Great language. Hard to learn in your own tho I really recommend an instructor
there are none
every instructor I find online would do it through skype and I rather see someone in person
most of them are stationed in shenzhen as well
@plasticsword there's a lot of places online you can go. Try teaching yourself the basics on YouTube. Look up different tones and how to use then. And maybe the "alphabet" or rather the different syllables then from there you can learn simple words like family and colors and stuff like that
I can speak cantonese fairly well
but that's only getting me so far in guangdong
I've never learned Cantonese. Seems really hard
Don't they have like 12 tones or something
I dunno I learnt from groing up as an asian
Oh lmao seems legit
Hell ye, I'm at BUU right now for school shit
Oh sweet. I'll you
Boarding my flight to Qatar now. 13 hour flight. 20hour layover in Doha and then 8 hour flight to Beijing
are you allowed to go outside during layover?
Yo plastic sword I'm on the same boat I can speak Cantonese but its useless and want the mandarins
I've been telling myself I'll begin learning soon but it keeps getting pushed back
I'm such a lazy fucker
Just got to Doha, Qatar. At the airport now. Flight to china isn't for another 20 hours
Did u leave airport yet to explore qatar
real shit right there symphony
Yeh mang its pretty tuff.. I want to go to chinkland for months and learn that way
I wonder if it'll work
you need to actually try
@Big Meme So now you got plenty of time to figure out where to go in Beijing
I feel like I'm gunna die. I haven't slept in like 3 days.
why haven't you
you're going to be jetlagged as fuck
try sleeping on the plane
or at the gate as you wait
whatever you do dont drink coffee at this point
@Big Meme#3424 Have you thought about drinking coffee?
coffee aint doin shit for that guy
just booze up on the plane
I don't drink coffee
Infact I rarely drink anything with caffeine but did have a Pepsi today but didn't help because I fell asleep afterwards. I've only been having like 20 minute nap the past couple days and the night before I left I got like maybe 4-3.5 hours of sleep
I'm probably gunna die here.
Jk I'll just sleep it off when I get to Chengdu
Plane leaves at 2am tonight. It's 6:20pm now
sleep on the plane fam
get some sleep now, in fact
sleep debt is a thing
t. recovering from sleep debt
can I get some sleep debt and repay it sometime in my sixties
>repaying sleep debt
I slept for about 40 mins. Feeling a but better. Going on a tour of Doha now. Had to wait in line for Iver an hour to get a Qatar Visa. Now I can freely leave the airport
Back from touring Doha
Onward to Beijing in 2 and a half hours
inb4 dies from sleep deprivation after landing in beijing
in all seriousness, have fun
Thanks haha. I hope to. I'll update you guys and send a link if I make a video of everything
got a vpn?
cause, y'know, china
Ugh there's some little baby crying in Arabic near me and I'm about to punt him to Allah if he doesn't shut up
Some guy said something to me in Chinese and laughed and I have no clue what it was so I just laughed with him
I didn't have the heart to tell him my Chinese isn't good.
How are the on flight movies?
ip man? 8)
Amazing actually. From Philly to Doha all movies were free. Small selection but good ones. Disney, star wars, Lord of the rings, all the new releases. Pretty good
All free too
Internet however was like $10USD for 30mb which is retarded
Beyond retarded, even
Not even the convention center is that extortionate
shit.. i know the feel brah I tried to stay awake in my 1 day stop in malaysia and couldnt handle it so I bought a movie ticket to sleep in peace in theater
despite the controversy, united international flights are great. the food is okay, a massive selection of movies and tv shows, and internet costs change depending on flight distance, but from China to Dallas, it was $20 usd for the whole 11 hour flight (not terrible, considering we are flying)
Greetings from China
I landed in Beijing and then flew to Chengdu. That's where I am now
I need photographic evidence
I'm laying in some chink bed and it's dark
This was at the airport when I got to Beijing
Looks like the IAMsterdam sign
Is the tap water safe to drink
I'm too big for chink land. Chink bed is too short for 6'1" me. My legs hang over. Also chink slippers are to small for my US 13 shoe size and I look retarded trying to walk around this apartment
I doubt it. They have bottled and refrigerated water
welcome to the chinkyland
I enjoy the aesthetics of it even tho it's inconvenient
Also can't get chink sim card for phone
You need an I'd number and I'm not a Chinese citizen
I was gunna get my friend to get it but he forgot to pay his bill too much so they blacklisted him from getting some cards
The chink got chinked
also your phones bands might not work on chinkyland
Also somehow discord, Snapchat, and Instagram work but Facebook and Twitter are blocked
It's a Chinese phone
If it doesn't work there's a problem
i think flagship stores still sell simcards
against showing passport to them
Why are SIMs so controlled here
cause all 3 telecoms are owned by same company
Back in Amerifat I walk into Walmart and ask for a prepaid sim and they say how many
>why is all so controlled >im in china
welll... umm i have news to you
Yeah but for a lao wai like me they should understand that I need muh freedoms
"hate to break this to you but you are in worlds second worst country when it comes to personal rights and law"
Next to what? Kim John Uns house of pancakes?
united sta---- i mean north korea is just shy bit worse
UK is getting there
Haha us is pretty rubbish especially since they just passed that ISPs can sell your porn browsing history
they have good aim and decent speed for first place contender
Alright well I haven't slept in 4 days so gunna try and do that. I'll update you guys on my mishaps and social offenses of being American in a foreign country
just remember that anything what is in bite sized pieces is allowed to be eaten by hand there
and you get along just fine
second advice for the day: you should not believe strangers in internet :D (nor your mom and dad)
I tried to send a continuation of what I was saying last night but the family I'm with pulled the wifi
I meant to say when I went to Souq Waqif in Doha a guy offered me some food and I reached for it with my left hand because I am Amerifat and he was offended and wouldn't let me take it till I used my thumb and pointer on my right hand.
Cuz people in the middle East wipe their ass with their left hand I think that's what I was told before so I should have known
Must suck being a leftie in that country then
Haha yeah. Luckily I wasn't a leftie I was just carrying something in my right hand
Haha yeah. Luckily I wasn't a leftie I was just carrying something in my right hand
One of those scam taxi drivers called me lao wai at the airport. Daddy C-milk would be proud
TAP IS NOT SAFE TO DRINK
Lmao I know that
Though my friend insists on boiling water but I thought it would still keep the heavy metals in but he says it's fine
Its fine, just think of it as a mineral heavy water
Are chinks safe to fug?
no you will get cancer
eh? you dont need chinese ID to get sim card. i have a chink sim card and im american
most people drink boiled water - so i guess its fine
i go bottled though because hot water sucks
have a good time, man. chengdu has incredible food and hot girls
Chengdu is very nice. I'm happy so far. Couldn't get chink sim. Friend had to get his friend to get one. He's black listed from not paying bills. Then she gave him the sim and I use his phone as a hotspot
I got a chink haircut today. It sucked cuz I don't know enough Chinese to explain hair styles so they took way too much off and now I'm basically bald from what I used to be. But it was cheap so can't complain. Maybe like 6USD I think.
>tfw come all the way to Sichuan, eats at Hong Kong style resteraunt
What a waste
Still pretty good tho. Made the mistake of eating a duck egg whole. It's so salty
Chinklandia has big buildings
Hope they don't fall over
They're all cement I think. Unlike Amerifat where it's all plaster and drywall
I can confirm. I just punched a wall in this apartment and my arm almost broke. In my house back home it would go through the wall
yes all buildings in china are concrete
after "where are you from", the tyhe #1 question im asdked by chinks is "how are buildings made in america"
cardboard and plywood
Haha cardboard and plywood is giving it a better reputation than they are lol. Pretty sure our houses collapse more and they are only one or two stories. Chink buildings almost never collapse and they are like 30-40 at least
Coommunism will prevail
qi chargers are shit?
I forgot how shit chinklandia is. People shitting on the path in the middle of a national park, people spitting constantly. People taking a piss literally wherever they please. There's no soap. No toilet paper. You can piss in the public toilets. People throw up in crowded areas and other people walk in it. I actually like the city here a bit better which I'm surprised because I figured I'd like the traditional country more
it ain't China if the toilets don't smell like shit and piss
Anyone here used rosetta stone to learn mandarin?
or any language?
I heard rosetta stone doesn't really teach you properly beyond direct english translations
get pimsleur and glossika from a certain bay
also, since you already know canto, once you get down the differences in vocabulary and grammar, it becomes a lot easier https://qph.ec.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-8007deb4907b5ff12fbc7ae6a2f8f264
@plasticsword you won't get any tangible results with rosetta stone
and the time investment it requires is ridiculous when you think about how little it teaches
you have the ability to analytically study as an adult. I suggest you get a proper grammar guide or a textbook
I found the most effective way for me to learn, as someone who's also of chinese background, is to simply listen and look up words you don't know. It goes a very long way.
okay thanks guys
Finally back from Tibetan land. Back in Chengdu. It feels so nice to have soap when you shower
What really sucked is that bathrooms are already shitty so when you finish taking a dump you want to wash your hands right? Well the water smells like sewage so you're better off smearing your own shit on your hands and then eating a sandwich than washing your hands and not eating at all
I probably got lung cancer from the shitty air and radiation poisoning from the water
All in all tho for as much as I complain about the shitty chink hygeine I actually do really like it here. It's an amazing country and definitely worth the visit if any of you guys get a chance
I'm going in August, flying in to beijing. Looking forward to it.
For you guys who've been there, what cities/places do you recommend visiting or staying at?
I'm in Chengdu now and the city is great. Very clean and always something to do. Air is meh. Beijing has way worse air tho. I'll be there at the end of the month to fly home
How long have you been in China?
Like maybe 6 days now I think
By air is "meh" does that mean mask-worthy pollution?
why are there so many white people in shenzhen
the air is like standing 1m away from a car exhaust
are they expat or tourist
I think shenzhen has one of the highest white population in China
Isnt shenzhen almost like Hong Kong?
free economic zone so you can browse facebook, twitter, youtube etc?
I thought that was only for gwailo <:thonk:288060975775612929>
shenzhen in the end is still china
while hong kong found it's own identity
if you go to lok ma chau, the border between hong kong and shenzhen you see the difference
on one side there's massive skyscrapers and a big city feel
and on the other side it's farm lands and green hills
As a Cantonese speaker, do you feel that people are more civilised in one or the other? Don't know what to believe because HKers and mainlanders all talk shit about each other
actually, no, not the mainland as a whole
I mean HK vs Shenzhen
hk people seems higher class but they both havev a sense of arrogance to them
I'm racists towards asians though
I try not to be but I can't help it
aren't you azn tho
yes but my point still stand
they fucking suck
Nothing unusual about that
Every Chinese teacher I ever knew as a kid would warn us about the dangers of being chinked
@fruitloops.exe it's not mask worthy but it's like letting your car run while you're sealing yourself in your garage with it. But it's not too bad. Occasionally it'll feel super dirty on my lungs and throat and I get short of breath but I'm slowly getting used to it
K, my friend is from Xian and based off her description of China I just kinda thought air was shit everywhere
I remember this one teacher I had, he had whole lessons that was just like, "If you go to China, *touch nothing* - they will force you to buy it. If you see something in a store, it will be *three times* the listed price, because you are a tourist."
But I guess that's more of a mega city thing
Yeah the air was good when I went up to JiuZhai county to visit a Tibetan village. Very clean. But back here in Chengdu it's pretty bad. Not mask worthy. Beijing is mask worthy
@Silent most of the time touch nothing otherwise they will expect you to buy it or you will cause a lot of trouble. But they don't jack up the prices for tourists. Or at least that has r happened to me. But they're fairly reasonable
Luckily I just point to something and say dou shao Quan and they tell me how many chinko tokens I need and then I hand them cash and I don't say a word cuz I don't know too much Chinese
Are you staying in Chengdu the whole time or are you going out on more small trips
Fair point, most Chinese are very cautious against other Chinese about getting chinked anyway
lel i am also sorta racist against asians
well mostly because mainlanders are filthy no mannered apes and hkers are fagatron arrogant tryhards
of course youll find awesome peeps from both groups but generally that is what you can observe and the bad stand out over the good
I don't get how that's different from any other group
I used to know a black dude that would talk about all the "fucking niggers" he knew in America
