  1. I moved to the US almost 20 years ago but still one thing I don’t understand: Why is this country obsessed with water being ice cold? It’s just water. Drink it at room temperature for fucks sake.

  2. I live in China, but I was born and raised in Canada. I love the efficiency of China’s systems. Housing, travel, shopping, etc. No one has time for scams or bullshit. They exist, but it only takes a small amount of research and savvy to find the optimal path. Everything’s so fast paced over here. The West feels like it’s stuck in the past. I haven’t carried or used cash in 6 months and paying with cards is obscure and ill advised. There are many aspects of Chinese domestic/international policies and historical teachings that I firmly disagree with, however I must say that living here and comparing their lifestyle to the one I knew before theirs is eye opening. The Chinese people sacrificed a great many things for these conveniences though. Freedom of expression, assembly, internet, etc. I really pity them. They have come so far, but knowledge and truth are more tainted than ever in this isolated and authoritarian Country.
