It's amusing how men can be so brilliant as to discourse on matters of such global importance like which nation owns which island, who's really behind the HK protests like it's an absolute truth, the conspiracy theories between the CIA, NATO, FIFA, IOC, what have you...I won't be surprised if it would be alleged that the US of A is behind this ebola thing that's taking much of Anderson Cooper's time to cover. It's in New York now, folks. Be very careful. Don't fly to the US if you can help…Continue

I use Mozilla Firefox and a Yahoo business (paid email, not the free one) email account.
When I first opened the Yahoo web based email page there were always long delays. I kept getting script timeout errors.
In the first 20 minutes I would have to go through about three of these, canceling the scripts when the error message opened. Only after all of these scripts were canceled would Yahoo Mail have decent performance.
I noticed that all the scripts were going to a…Continue

I wish I could remember that first day, First hour, first moment of your meeting me,
If bright or dim the season,
it might be Summer or Winter for aught I can say;
So unrecorded did it slip away,
So blind was I to see and to foresee,
So dull to mark the budding of my tree That would not blossom for many a May.
If only I could recollect it, such A day of days!
I let it come and go As traceless as a thaw of bygone snow;
It seemed to mean…Continue

Frank is a bluff, a movie built on a single idea that doesn’t go any further than that. Wannabe songwriter joins a band after a fortunate encounter, they all move to a country house to record a new album, things go awry, they get a gig in Texas, tension explodes, band splits up, the wannabe songwriter tries to get them together again, he makes it and leaves. End of story.
I forgot to mention that Frank, the band’s leader and singer, wears a big mask all the time and…Continue

Before reading Wild Swan, I thought it's a beautiful novel with some romance or something like that.
Unfortunately, I was wrong. I tried to give up at the beginning but it's not my character. (I must dig out something good as others might think it as good as the reviews.)
After reading 50%, I felt it boring as most of descriptions were sort of repeating Chinese History texbooks, which kinda annoying me.(I hope foreigners can read the texbooks.…Continue
