2017-06-04 04:30:48 UTC

they allow glamour shoots

2017-06-04 04:31:05 UTC

2017-06-04 04:31:49 UTC

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?

2017-06-04 04:35:28 UTC

2017-06-04 05:00:08 UTC

2017-06-04 12:04:53 UTC

Also at the airport now about 3~ hours till flight leaves

2017-06-04 12:09:30 UTC

Oh shit big memewhere you staying

2017-06-04 12:09:35 UTC

I'm visiting in Beijing rn

2017-06-04 12:32:42 UTC

anyone here learning mandarin?

2017-06-04 12:32:58 UTC

I need some suggestions to how to learn it

2017-06-04 12:56:05 UTC

@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

2017-06-04 12:56:41 UTC

@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

2017-06-04 12:57:05 UTC

there are none

2017-06-04 12:57:07 UTC

@Resident Shekelman yo we should meet up if you're free

2017-06-04 12:57:41 UTC

every instructor I find online would do it through skype and I rather see someone in person

2017-06-04 12:58:00 UTC

most of them are stationed in shenzhen as well

2017-06-04 12:58:12 UTC

@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

2017-06-04 12:58:26 UTC

I can speak cantonese fairly well

2017-06-04 12:58:43 UTC

but that's only getting me so far in guangdong

2017-06-04 12:59:06 UTC

I've never learned Cantonese. Seems really hard

2017-06-04 12:59:17 UTC

Don't they have like 12 tones or something

2017-06-04 12:59:37 UTC

I dunno I learnt from groing up as an asian

2017-06-04 13:00:26 UTC

Oh lmao seems legit

2017-06-04 13:03:15 UTC

Hell ye, I'm at BUU right now for school shit

2017-06-04 14:07:51 UTC

2017-06-04 14:14:04 UTC

2017-06-05 03:28:08 UTC

Yo plastic sword I'm on the same boat I can speak Cantonese but its useless and want the mandarins

2017-06-05 03:28:31 UTC

I've been telling myself I'll begin learning soon but it keeps getting pushed back

2017-06-05 03:28:39 UTC

I'm such a lazy fucker

2017-06-05 04:33:08 UTC

Just got to Doha, Qatar. At the airport now. Flight to china isn't for another 20 hours

2017-06-05 04:47:16 UTC

Did u leave airport yet to explore qatar

2017-06-05 06:58:08 UTC

real shit right there symphony

2017-06-05 07:09:15 UTC

Yeh mang its pretty tuff.. I want to go to chinkland for months and learn that way

2017-06-05 07:09:22 UTC

I wonder if it'll work

2017-06-05 08:15:58 UTC

it won't

2017-06-05 08:16:21 UTC

it won't

2017-06-05 08:16:21 UTC

you need to actually try

2017-06-05 10:12:56 UTC

@Big Meme So now you got plenty of time to figure out where to go in Beijing

2017-06-05 11:25:45 UTC

I feel like I'm gunna die. I haven't slept in like 3 days.

2017-06-05 13:18:52 UTC

why haven't you

2017-06-05 13:18:58 UTC

you're going to be jetlagged as fuck

2017-06-05 13:19:04 UTC

try sleeping on the plane

2017-06-05 13:19:14 UTC

or at the gate as you wait

2017-06-05 13:20:51 UTC

whatever you do dont drink coffee at this point

2017-06-05 13:22:02 UTC

@Big Meme#3424 Have you thought about drinking coffee?

2017-06-05 14:10:23 UTC

coffee aint doin shit for that guy

2017-06-05 14:28:50 UTC

just booze up on the plane

2017-06-05 15:17:51 UTC

I don't drink coffee

2017-06-05 15:18:39 UTC

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

2017-06-05 15:18:50 UTC

I'm probably gunna die here.

2017-06-05 15:19:00 UTC

Jk I'll just sleep it off when I get to Chengdu

2017-06-05 15:19:18 UTC

Plane leaves at 2am tonight. It's 6:20pm now

2017-06-05 15:20:02 UTC

@Big Meme Did you figure out what you're going to do and see?

2017-06-05 16:12:30 UTC

sleep on the plane fam

2017-06-05 16:13:15 UTC

get some sleep now, in fact

2017-06-05 16:13:22 UTC

sleep debt is a thing

2017-06-05 16:13:29 UTC

2017-06-05 16:18:13 UTC

can I get some sleep debt and repay it sometime in my sixties

2017-06-05 16:20:37 UTC

>repaying sleep debt

2017-06-05 16:44:17 UTC

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

2017-06-05 20:32:23 UTC

Back from touring Doha

2017-06-05 20:32:30 UTC

Was awesome

2017-06-05 20:32:42 UTC

Onward to Beijing in 2 and a half hours

2017-06-05 20:35:08 UTC

Nice

2017-06-05 20:35:10 UTC

Have fun

2017-06-05 20:39:16 UTC

inb4 dies from sleep deprivation after landing in beijing

2017-06-05 20:39:26 UTC

in all seriousness, have fun

2017-06-05 21:09:08 UTC

Thanks haha. I hope to. I'll update you guys and send a link if I make a video of everything

2017-06-05 21:16:11 UTC

2017-06-05 21:16:31 UTC

cause, y'know, china

2017-06-05 21:19:44 UTC

Got two

2017-06-05 21:20:08 UTC

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

2017-06-05 22:00:13 UTC

Some guy said something to me in Chinese and laughed and I have no clue what it was so I just laughed with him

2017-06-05 22:00:24 UTC

I didn't have the heart to tell him my Chinese isn't good.

2017-06-05 22:00:45 UTC

Aw

2017-06-05 22:00:49 UTC

How are the on flight movies?

2017-06-05 22:01:23 UTC

ip man? 8)

2017-06-05 22:06:35 UTC

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

2017-06-05 22:06:40 UTC

All free too

2017-06-05 22:06:57 UTC

Internet however was like $10USD for 30mb which is retarded

2017-06-06 03:23:34 UTC

Beyond retarded, even

2017-06-06 03:23:43 UTC

Not even the convention center is that extortionate

2017-06-06 10:12:20 UTC

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

2017-06-06 13:18:58 UTC

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)

2017-06-06 16:30:29 UTC

Greetings from China

2017-06-06 16:30:44 UTC

I landed in Beijing and then flew to Chengdu. That's where I am now

2017-06-06 16:31:16 UTC

I need photographic evidence

2017-06-06 16:31:39 UTC

I'm laying in some chink bed and it's dark

2017-06-06 16:31:42 UTC

Uh

2017-06-06 16:31:56 UTC

This was at the airport when I got to Beijing

2017-06-06 16:32:55 UTC

Looks like the IAMsterdam sign

2017-06-06 16:33:15 UTC

Is the tap water safe to drink

2017-06-06 16:33:15 UTC

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

2017-06-06 16:33:36 UTC

I doubt it. They have bottled and refrigerated water

2017-06-06 16:33:41 UTC

welcome to the chinkyland

2017-06-06 16:34:03 UTC

I enjoy the aesthetics of it even tho it's inconvenient

2017-06-06 16:34:12 UTC

Also can't get chink sim card for phone

2017-06-06 16:34:23 UTC

You need an I'd number and I'm not a Chinese citizen

2017-06-06 16:34:44 UTC

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

2017-06-06 16:34:50 UTC

The chink got chinked

2017-06-06 16:35:13 UTC

----

2017-06-06 16:35:29 UTC

also your phones bands might not work on chinkyland

2017-06-06 16:35:35 UTC

Also somehow discord, Snapchat, and Instagram work but Facebook and Twitter are blocked

2017-06-06 16:35:39 UTC

It's a Chinese phone

2017-06-06 16:35:43 UTC

Xiaomeme

2017-06-06 16:35:50 UTC

If it doesn't work there's a problem

2017-06-06 16:36:26 UTC

i think flagship stores still sell simcards

2017-06-06 16:36:31 UTC

against showing passport to them

2017-06-06 16:36:52 UTC

Why are SIMs so controlled here

2017-06-06 16:37:07 UTC

cause all 3 telecoms are owned by same company

2017-06-06 16:37:11 UTC

Back in Amerifat I walk into Walmart and ask for a prepaid sim and they say how many

2017-06-06 16:37:15 UTC

>why is all so controlled >im in china

2017-06-06 16:37:21 UTC

welll... umm i have news to you

2017-06-06 16:37:23 UTC

True haha

2017-06-06 16:37:25 UTC

thats china

2017-06-06 16:37:55 UTC

Yeah but for a lao wai like me they should understand that I need muh freedoms

2017-06-06 16:38:23 UTC

"hate to break this to you but you are in worlds second worst country when it comes to personal rights and law"

2017-06-06 16:38:50 UTC

Next to what? Kim John Uns house of pancakes?

2017-06-06 16:38:52 UTC

united sta---- i mean north korea is just shy bit worse

2017-06-06 16:39:16 UTC

UK is getting there

2017-06-06 16:39:27 UTC

Haha us is pretty rubbish especially since they just passed that ISPs can sell your porn browsing history

2017-06-06 16:39:32 UTC

they have good aim and decent speed for first place contender

2017-06-06 16:40:48 UTC

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

2017-06-06 16:41:37 UTC

just remember that anything what is in bite sized pieces is allowed to be eaten by hand there

2017-06-06 16:41:42 UTC

and you get along just fine

2017-06-06 16:42:28 UTC

second advice for the day: you should not believe strangers in internet :D (nor your mom and dad)

2017-06-06 23:23:48 UTC

I tried to send a continuation of what I was saying last night but the family I'm with pulled the wifi

2017-06-06 23:24:58 UTC

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.

2017-06-06 23:25:20 UTC

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

2017-06-06 23:26:44 UTC

Must suck being a leftie in that country then

2017-06-06 23:37:37 UTC

Haha yeah. Luckily I wasn't a leftie I was just carrying something in my right hand

2017-06-06 23:37:37 UTC

Haha yeah. Luckily I wasn't a leftie I was just carrying something in my right hand

2017-06-06 23:38:02 UTC

One of those scam taxi drivers called me lao wai at the airport. Daddy C-milk would be proud

2017-06-07 00:02:04 UTC

Haha nice

2017-06-07 00:06:33 UTC

ε€ͺ-ε€ͺ貴了!

2017-06-07 00:32:15 UTC

TAP IS NOT SAFE TO DRINK

2017-06-07 01:53:21 UTC

Lmao I know that

2017-06-07 01:53:51 UTC

Though my friend insists on boiling water but I thought it would still keep the heavy metals in but he says it's fine

2017-06-07 03:00:17 UTC

Its fine, just think of it as a mineral heavy water

2017-06-07 03:38:21 UTC

Are chinks safe to fug?

2017-06-07 04:46:10 UTC

no you will get cancer

2017-06-07 05:38:52 UTC

eh? you dont need chinese ID to get sim card. i have a chink sim card and im american

2017-06-07 05:40:19 UTC

most people drink boiled water - so i guess its fine

2017-06-07 05:40:26 UTC

i go bottled though because hot water sucks

2017-06-07 05:40:55 UTC

have a good time, man. chengdu has incredible food and hot girls

2017-06-07 06:33:44 UTC

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

2017-06-07 06:35:25 UTC

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.

2017-06-07 06:35:53 UTC

>tfw come all the way to Sichuan, eats at Hong Kong style resteraunt

What a waste

2017-06-07 06:37:56 UTC

Still pretty good tho. Made the mistake of eating a duck egg whole. It's so salty

2017-06-07 06:39:40 UTC

2017-06-07 06:39:49 UTC

Chinklandia has big buildings

2017-06-07 06:45:31 UTC

Hope they don't fall over

2017-06-07 06:48:45 UTC

They're all cement I think. Unlike Amerifat where it's all plaster and drywall

2017-06-07 06:51:19 UTC

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

2017-06-07 10:30:52 UTC

yes all buildings in china are concrete

2017-06-07 10:31:17 UTC

after "where are you from", the tyhe #1 question im asdked by chinks is "how are buildings made in america"

2017-06-07 10:39:52 UTC

cardboard and plywood

2017-06-07 11:52:35 UTC

w-why

2017-06-07 11:53:00 UTC

不ε₯½θ½

2017-06-07 14:26:08 UTC

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

2017-06-07 18:07:21 UTC

klooooooooooooooool

2017-06-07 18:18:14 UTC

Coommunism will prevail

2017-06-07 22:17:34 UTC

qi chargers are shit?

2017-06-09 06:41:48 UTC

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

2017-06-09 07:34:47 UTC

it ain't China if the toilets don't smell like shit and piss

2017-06-09 09:54:14 UTC

Anyone here used rosetta stone to learn mandarin?

2017-06-09 09:54:19 UTC

or any language?

2017-06-09 16:00:46 UTC

I heard rosetta stone doesn't really teach you properly beyond direct english translations

2017-06-09 16:01:28 UTC

get pimsleur and glossika from a certain bay

2017-06-09 16:01:51 UTC
2017-06-09 16:04:15 UTC

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

2017-06-09 18:09:28 UTC

@plasticsword you won't get any tangible results with rosetta stone

2017-06-09 18:09:49 UTC

and the time investment it requires is ridiculous when you think about how little it teaches

2017-06-09 18:10:22 UTC

you have the ability to analytically study as an adult. I suggest you get a proper grammar guide or a textbook

2017-06-09 21:37:43 UTC

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.

2017-06-09 22:43:09 UTC

okay thanks guys

2017-06-10 15:53:37 UTC

Finally back from Tibetan land. Back in Chengdu. It feels so nice to have soap when you shower

2017-06-10 15:54:46 UTC

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

2017-06-10 15:55:15 UTC

I probably got lung cancer from the shitty air and radiation poisoning from the water

2017-06-10 15:56:05 UTC

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

2017-06-10 16:38:25 UTC

I'm going in August, flying in to beijing. Looking forward to it.

2017-06-10 21:16:10 UTC

For you guys who've been there, what cities/places do you recommend visiting or staying at?

2017-06-11 00:28:43 UTC

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

2017-06-11 00:48:03 UTC

How long have you been in China?

Like maybe 6 days now I think

2017-06-11 00:51:58 UTC

By air is "meh" does that mean mask-worthy pollution?

2017-06-11 03:28:00 UTC
2017-06-11 04:12:31 UTC

why are there so many white people in shenzhen

2017-06-11 04:13:24 UTC

the air is like standing 1m away from a car exhaust

2017-06-11 05:14:22 UTC

are they expat or tourist

2017-06-11 05:25:15 UTC

both

2017-06-11 05:26:16 UTC

I think shenzhen has one of the highest white population in China

2017-06-11 11:11:14 UTC

Isnt shenzhen almost like Hong Kong?

2017-06-11 11:11:29 UTC

free economic zone so you can browse facebook, twitter, youtube etc?

2017-06-11 12:32:16 UTC

I thought that was only for gwailo <:thonk:288060975775612929>

2017-06-11 13:43:38 UTC

no

2017-06-11 13:43:53 UTC

shenzhen in the end is still china

2017-06-11 13:44:05 UTC

while hong kong found it's own identity

2017-06-11 13:45:11 UTC

if you go to lok ma chau, the border between hong kong and shenzhen you see the difference

2017-06-11 13:45:35 UTC

on one side there's massive skyscrapers and a big city feel

2017-06-11 13:45:54 UTC

and on the other side it's farm lands and green hills

2017-06-11 13:46:30 UTC

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

2017-06-11 13:46:31 UTC

Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

2017-06-11 13:47:04 UTC

actually, no, not the mainland as a whole

2017-06-11 13:47:07 UTC

I mean HK vs Shenzhen

2017-06-11 13:47:09 UTC

hk people seems higher class but they both havev a sense of arrogance to them

2017-06-11 13:48:18 UTC

I'm racists towards asians though

2017-06-11 13:48:35 UTC

I try not to be but I can't help it

2017-06-11 13:49:07 UTC

aren't you azn tho

2017-06-11 14:09:57 UTC

yes but my point still stand

2017-06-11 14:10:01 UTC

they fucking suck

2017-06-11 14:37:30 UTC

Nothing unusual about that

2017-06-11 14:42:55 UTC

Every Chinese teacher I ever knew as a kid would warn us about the dangers of being chinked

2017-06-11 14:45:06 UTC

@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

2017-06-11 14:47:34 UTC

K, my friend is from Xian and based off her description of China I just kinda thought air was shit everywhere

2017-06-11 14:48:15 UTC

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."

2017-06-11 14:48:15 UTC

But I guess that's more of a mega city thing

2017-06-11 14:52:10 UTC

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

2017-06-11 14:53:06 UTC

@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

2017-06-11 14:53:49 UTC

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

2017-06-11 14:54:22 UTC

*qian

2017-06-11 14:54:32 UTC

*tokens

2017-06-11 14:54:36 UTC

Damn autocorrect

2017-06-11 14:55:28 UTC

Are you staying in Chengdu the whole time or are you going out on more small trips

2017-06-11 14:57:25 UTC

Fair point, most Chinese are very cautious against other Chinese about getting chinked anyway

2017-06-11 16:32:33 UTC

lel i am also sorta racist against asians

2017-06-11 16:32:54 UTC

well mostly because mainlanders are filthy no mannered apes and hkers are fagatron arrogant tryhards

2017-06-11 16:33:53 UTC

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

2017-06-11 16:52:47 UTC

I don't get how that's different from any other group

2017-06-11 16:53:11 UTC

I used to know a black dude that would talk about all the "fucking niggers" he knew in America
