Well I don't actually write many entries here, and for good reason because then I would have to write quick and witty ancedotes or be contemplative and share my inner feelings with the world wide web...but in honor of being in China for so long, I decided to write a long run-on sentence.
some really quick rants.
why does everything here have to be so Asian? Enough is enough already.
why did I only bring 3 razors to a country that doesn't have facial hair?
why do taxi drivers have to universially suck?
why is there such a disregard for human life here? I mean fake dvds are one thing, but fake alcohol made from methanol and a little formaldahyde added in for flavor. Greed wins again.
why is MSG a staple in Chinese cooking? oh yeah see above
why do french people insist on chain-smoking constantly? I guess it doesnt matter since the stuff coming out of my nose is already black from the pollution, I'm screwed either way.

everything else

why is sarcasm only relevant in english? anyone know the underlying reason?
