"That's the point of the story, William, the dummy couldn't tell a tiger from a lion."
- Ben Gazzara as Jack Flowers

reporting bugs and fixes for the chinese slaves to fix
The exact significance of the number eight is yet to be revealed, but perhaps we should ask the Chinese.
hahaha "It's in the Chinese Zodiac! Asia's hot right now!"
His diabolical scheme to send the Chinese walking across the ocean?
-We all know each other.
Except the Chinese.
...former fastest typer (I even beat the Chinese), I advise you to re-examine your typing style (specifically how you place your wrists) and also perhaps look up some suitable exercises to strengthen the muscles around your tendons.
The Chinese economic miracle!
You can re-create this magic on a micro-economic scale
with your line of tea bodums
and the shipping charges will be exponentially lower
That was tailoring. Arab terrorist front.
The Chinese are more at ease with the world.
-the year is over
-No, it's the Chinese Zodiac
Should end around February 10th or so
...When the Chinese Zodiac is more favourable to my preferred balling method.
We're going to the botanical gardens - the chinese lantern festival
...He became a reclusive anti-semitic mathematician, holed up in north Vancouver, and screaming about the Chinese and their insidious plots to take over the world.
Lots of love from the Chinese...
It's called abacus like the chinese counter
-Yeah, I am! I don't know what show I'm going to see yet, though
That's the one about the Japanese terrorists, right?

As it is now, you will have trouble enough with the Japanese in PEI
Haunted Halifax, evil brainwashed Japanese people.
What kind of emoticon? Some sort of graphic sexual thing only the Japanese know how to decipher?
Emily Post never wrote a book about that, I don't think.
But my father had a number explaining how to do business with the Japanese.
He loves the Japanese. Hey, the Japanese held that hot dog eating champion title, and are also considered the leaders in the world of quality control! Do you think there's a connection? Round peg, round hole?
The Japanese have the best printing facilities in the world over there, you could get some large format book published with laser cut pages, and an embossed or relieved cover or something. Or like Kiss, with actual blood in the red ink! Bound in the hides of marsupials! Sewn together with dried intestine! The first book grown from stem cells!
It would, of course, alienate the Japanese, who read the other way, but whatever,
they lost World War II anyway.
the last two Japanese movies I've seen had plenty of scotch drinking in them - perhaps the Japanese represent the unfettered unconscious drinkin' desires of the Jewish people.

A creative writer must study carefully the works of his rivals, including the Almighty. He must possess the inborn capacity not only of recombining but of re-creating the given world. In order to do this adequately, avoiding duplication of labor, the artist should know the given world. Imagination without knowledge leads no farther than the back yard of primitive art, the child's scrawl on the fence, and the crank's message in the market place. Art is never simple. To return to my lecturing days: I automatically gave low marks when a student used the dreadful phrase "sincere and simple"-- "Flaubert writes with a style which is always simple and sincere"-- under the impression that this was the greatest compliment payable to prose or poetry. When I struck the phrase out, which I did with such rage in my pencil that it ripped the paper, the student complained that this was what teachers had always taught him: "Art is simple, art is sincere." Someday I must trace this vulgar absurdity to its source. A schoolmarm in Ohio? A progressive ass in New York? Because, of course, art at its greatest is fantastically deceitful and complex.- Vladimir Nabokov, Playboy Interview, 1964
A scorpion wanted to cross a river, so he asked a frog to carry him. 'No,' said the frog. 'No thank you. If I let you on my back you may sting me, and the sting of the scorpion means death.' 'Now where,' asked the scorpion, 'is the logic of that? NO scorpion could be judged illogical! If I sting you, you will die - I will drown.' The frog was convinced and allowed the scorpion on his back, but just in the middle of the river he felt a terrible pain and realized that after all the scorpion had stung him. 'Logic!' cried the dying frog, as he started under, bearing the scorpion down with him. 'There is no logic in this!' 'I know,' said the scorpion, 'but I can't help it - it's my character.'
"Though at first considered an apt successor to the throne, Emperor Taisho (Great Righteousness) suffered a brain thrombosis in 1919 which left him extremely eccentric. A widely circulated story tells of one occasions when, while addressing the Diet, the Emperor rolled up the script for his speech, and holding it like a telescope, peered long and hard at the assembled dignitaries."Arthur Murray Whitehill, "Japanese Management: Tradition and Transition"
