Recycled Glass

Against my better judgment, I occasionally see what's cooking over at Sankaku Complex (I just read it for the articles - I swear). Lo and behold, I found something for fans of healthy lungs and fenestraphiles alike. Did I mention this isn't even vaguely safe for work? I should probably mention that.

Anyways, unless I'm missing some greater meaning or linguistic/visual pun that only makes sense in Japanese, sometimes tits on glass aren't a metaphor for life - they're about people fapping like caged monkeys to tits against glass. I'm glad the geniuses at SC were able to help me grasp this very important lesson.

China crushes Tomato Garden

The Chinese government officially buried the most infamous (and some would say, successful) software piracy scheme in history when four of people behind the distribution of pirated Microsoft operating systems were jailed and fined for their part in distributing the infamous "Tomato Garden" versions of Windows XP distributed from the tomatolei.com website.

Tomato Garden versions of Windows are like regular Windows with all copy protections bypassed, but were also ineligible for software and security updates distributed by Microsoft, and as anyone who works in internet security is only too aware of, Tomato Garden XP is responsible for millions upon countless millions of rampant unchecked security threats thanks to the complete and utter lack of software updates available to fix Microsoft security vulnerabilities exploited by malware programmers.

So why was Tomato Garden so popular when Microsoft sold legal copies of Windows XP at an extremely competitive price in China? I'll leave it to a cynic, or Chinese software consumer, to answer this one.

Tiger Tamed!

Tiger had never lost when having a share of the 54-hole lead in the Major. It had to happen one day, but when?

It finally happened, and the man is Yong Eun Yang of South Korea. And he won by 3 shots!

He became the first Asian-born player to win a men’s major golf championship.

To think that not only would Tiger lose with a two-shot lead, but lose to the guy playing head-to-head in his group is pretty remarkable. Tiger usually demolishes his playing partner in final rounds.

I believe the thing that got Yang over the top was no fear. Alot of players would be timid and scared of Tiger and the big galleries. After Yang's chip-in Eagle on 14, I wonder how he would play with the lead. Would he play safe, be nervous, be scared.

Not at all. his approaches on 16 and 18 were aimed right at the flag going for birdie. Not playing safe to the middle of the green and playing for par. His only hiccup was the 3-putt on 17 when he showed signs of nerves. BUt Tiger couldn't take advantage.

How bout not being so sensitive!

Source: StarTribune

I'm not important enough to warrant a beer summit. But I did get a bottle of water out of the deal.

Last week, as the rest of the country tried to forget the unpleasant confrontation between Harvard Prof. Henry Louis Gates and Cambridge police officer James Crowley, I had my own Gates-Crowley moment.

I went to Fridley to interview the president of a large manufacturing company. I arrived a few minutes before noon and told the receptionist at the front desk I was looking for the president's executive assistant.

"Oh. Are you delivering food?" she asked.

Oh, no, she didn't!

It wasn't the first time I was mistaken for a Chinese food delivery guy. In college, I had arrived at my girlfriend's dorm with dinner and the front desk dude assumed just that. I was embarrassed, to be sure, but let it go. That's the burden of being a Chinese-American with a penchant for baseball caps, jeans and takeout food.

Yet the receptionist's inquiry stunned me. I was wearing a dress shirt, black slacks and black dress shoes. True, I was sporting a backpack and sunglasses, but how many food delivery guys whip out kung pao chicken from a Gap bag?

After realizing her error, the receptionist offered a rather clumsy explanation. "I only asked because [the executive assistant] always orders food," she said.

Nice try, lady. Someone's not getting a Christmas card this year.

Maybe I'm being too harsh. At least she didn't speak extra slowly and offer a tip.

As I drove back to the office, chugging the bottle of water the company had given me, I chuckled to myself. I wasn't too upset. The receptionist seemed way more embarrassed than I was.

But then I told the story to friends and colleagues. I expected them to laugh and sympathize. Instead they offered several explanations, everything except what seemed obvious to me.

Yeah it's only obvious to you cause you're damn sensitive.

And why were you embarassed? You got something against delivery workers that you feel EMBARASSED to be called one? Many people start out working in Chinese restaurants. Entire families are supported by one delivery guy job. You should be ashamed.

Last I checked secretaries are quite busy and they're not going to notice everything. Let's say her boss ordered Chinese food, so she's just asking if this is food. If the delivery guy walked in and she mistakened him for the journalist, do you think he would be as upset as you?

Secretaries deal with hundreds of people a day plus a bazillion phone lines. So she thought you were someone you're not.. boohoo. She apologized for it. If it were me, I would have just ignored it, but instead you made a person feel bad for a mistake, hope you're proud of yourself.

This whining is newsworthy? Some newspaper editor accepted this? This isn't journalism. This is something a little blog like mine would write about!

Not everything is racist you know.

Dallas Police Look to Hire More Asian Officers

Source: NBC Dallas

Dallas Police recruiters want to hire more Asian officers as the city's Asian population grows.

Police say it’s important for the Asian community to be well represented in the department.

“Seeing and encountering an Asian officer that can speak their language, understand their culture, can help rebuild the trusting relationship,” said 6-year Dallas Police veteran Dac Nguyen.

Nguyen moved to Dallas from Vietnam 17 years ago. He said people in his home country have an inherent distrust of law enforcement that often persists even after moving to the United States.

“Culturally, law enforcement has been viewed and seen as corrupted, abusive and incompetent in the eyes of the Vietnamese community,” he said.

So getting officers that look like the corrupt officers in the old Vietnam will help right?

Korean business leaders said they would also like to see more Asian officers on the Dallas Police force.

“Bi-lingual is the key,” said Mike Lee, the president of the Greater Dallas Korean American Chamber of Commerce.

“If an officer can speak Korean he will get more information from Korean victims and witnesses," Lee said. "The goal is to build trust between community and law enforcement.”

Again wrong.

This main problem with the small Asian communities in North American is that everyone knows everyone and everyone talks. The gossip is usually pretty embarrassing.

So let's say for example I was raped or beaten. The last thing I would want is a Asian police officer coming to the house. If feel a white officer would better protect my identity and write a proper report. An Asian officer would most likely:

A) know me
B) know the guy who beat me
C) know my parents

He would be biased which may or may not help the case.
Also he would tell someone.. "hey did you know Tracy's bf, beats her! What a shame."

So honestly if there were alot of Asian cops around my neighbourhood, I wouldn't report shit.

The language argument is a load of bull to me. It's the job of Asians to speak English, not officers to speak Vietnamese or anything else.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Sets Guinness Record

Source: Anime News Network

Konami Digital Entertainment has announced on Friday that Guinness World Records has recognized Yu-Gi-Oh! as the best-selling trading card game to date with over 22,587,728,173 cards sold as of April 2009. The game entered the record books on July 7. The official announcement was made at the 7th annual Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game World Championship in Tokyo. Kazuki Takahashi drew the original manga from 1996 to 2004, and the card game first shipped in 1999 and eventually spread to over 45 countries. Konami had applied for the record back in 2006, when "only" 15.8 billion cards had been sold.

That's alot of cards. I have some old ones lying around I think. From when I bought them for my niece. I wonder if they're worth anything :)

The couple, from Nanjing, are fascinated by anything to do with the military, reports Wuzhou Daily.

"We love war movies especially," said husband Wang Mian, adding that the couple also enjoyed war games.

"War is for peace, and war is for our home, our parents, wife and kids," he added.

The couple persuaded their wedding organisers to wear military uniforms and to take pictures of them in battlefield poses.

First, a gun-wielding Wang was photographed rescuing bride, Tian Houyu, from a shoot-out. Then they were pictured kissing while surrounded by soldiers performing a gunfire salute.

Tian added: "I love my husband. He's my lifelong war pal and companion. If anyone dares to invade our home, we'll fight together to the last moment."

That's very creative! And alot of hard work! It's better than a stupid 2km long train!

Chinese bride trains eye on wedding dress record

Source: Reuters

A Chinese bride is hoping to enter the record books after getting married in a wedding dress with a train more than 2 km (1.2 miles) long trailing behind her.

It took guests more than three hours to roll out the gown, complete with 9,999 silk red roses attached to it, in the northeastern province of Jilin, state news agency Xinhua said.

"Both the length of the dress and the number silk roses pinned on the wedding dress can make history," the report quoted groom Zhao Peng as saying.

Zhao, who has applied to Guinness World Records, said he was inspired after seeing a story on the previous record holder in Romania, where the dress measured just over 1.5 km.

"I do not want a cliche wedding parade or banquet," he said.

Bride Lin Rong "laughed and cried at the romantic gesture," Xinhua said.

The dress cost around 40,000 yuan ($5,856), which prompted initial opposition to the plan from his family.

"It is a waste of money in my opinion," said Zhao's mother. "Though I understand that he wants to show his love on the big day."

Cripes! Isn't planning a wedding stressful enough without having to deal with a 2km train! I know you want your wedding to be special but this is beyond stooopidity.

I want the simpliest of weddings with little stress as possible. I don't need a perfect day, I'd rather have a perfect wedding night (wink wink)

DNA tests for Chinese children

There's good and bad in this. This would put alot of pressure on kids at a young age to be either sporty, musical,or a brain. That's what China needs, more 8 year old gymnasts in the Olympics :)

On the good side it does give parents an idea of where their kid's strength is. Not everyone can be a doctor right? So force feeding a kid biology when a simple frog disection sends them off barfing in the bathroom is not a good idea. Something alot of Chinese-Canadian parents could learn.

"I am proud to be a brick in the statistics building of the PRC"

Source: Foreign Policy

As part of the myriad activities planned to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1, the normally staid National Bureau of Statistics is letting its hair down a bit.
The NBS has launched a call for submissions of writings celebrating the PRC’s big birthday as part of campaign called “Statistical Feelings: Together We Go – Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Founding of New China.” The campaign is intended to boost the patriotic feelings and confidence of statisticians in their work.

One essay, submitted by an employee of the NBS industrial division, is titled “I Am Proud to Be a Brick in the Statistics Building of the PRC,” and reads like a prose poem, each paragraph leading with the title’s refrain.

A poem, “Love the Homeland, Love Statistics,” includes the following stanza:

Some mock me for doing statistics
Some loathe me and statistics
Some don’t understand what statistics are
Why is it that statistics
Put a calm smile on my face?
Because of statistics
I can solve the deepest mysteries
Because of statistics
I will not be lonely again, playing in the data
Because of statistics
I can rearrange the stars in the skies above
Because of statistics
My life is different, more meaningful
I love my life, my statistics

That's pretty messed up. People can make a poem about pretty much every eh? Even statisticians need love right? They are very proud to be just part of the whole Chinese system!

N. Korean leader reportedly pardons U.S. journalists

Source: CNN

North Korean President Kim Jong Il has pardoned and ordered the release of two U.S. journalists, state-run news agency KCNA said Wednesday.

The announcement came after former U.S. President Bill Clinton met with top North Korean officials in Pyongyang to appeal for the release of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who had been arrested while reporting from the border between North Korea and China.

"Clinton expressed words of sincere apology to Kim Jong Il for the hostile acts committed by the two American journalists against the DPRK after illegally intruding into it," the news agency reported. "Clinton courteously conveyed to Kim Jong Il an earnest request of the U.S. government to leniently pardon them and send them back home from a humanitarian point of view.


What a strange place North Korea is. There is absolutely no laws there at all. Looking at this from a neutral point of view, the two journalists are either guilty or not guilty right? How is it that they can be guilty and sentenced to 12 years in prison one minute and then because Bubba pays them a visit, they are now free! And that's all it took? Bill Clinton flys into the country, takes a few pictures and North Korea lets them go? I thought it would be much more difficult?

Two journalists = 1 photo-op :)

So strange. If I went and did something crazy, I'm not sure my Prime Minister could get me pardoned even though I live in his riding and I am his friend *wink wink wink*

As happy as I am that the journalists are free, this is not good precedence. Now North Korea can do anything they want (like arrest people) and the US will have make a deal each time!

So happens now? Does the US play nice to get a couple of journalists out and then go back to being tough? We'll see.


All the jokes are coming out now, like:

When Bill Clinton wants to bring home two women at the same time, not even North Korea can stop him! :D

Becoming China’s First NFL Kicker

Source: China Sports Review

“Steve” Yue Wang’s eyes light up when you talk football. He doesn’t have any favorite players or memorable moments, either from watching or playing. He can’t rattle off any statistics. He’s never really played the game. These are all things the average American has done if they’re into football.

But Wang isn’t American. He just knows he enjoys football.

“I know the game of soccer, but it isn’t worth it anymore,” says Wang. “I am tired of playing [soccer]. Football is so new, and it is just different.”

Wang, a senior at Cumberland University in Nashville, Tenn., has played soccer all his life. Soccer is what Wang has to do. He’s on a soccer scholarship, which has opened the doors for an education that includes double majoring in both business management and marketing. He holds a 3.7 overall GPA. He plays jazz and blues music in his free time. He picked the English name “Steve” because he says Ray Vaughn sounds like Yue Wang (pronounced like ‘u-way wang’), and he always enjoyed Stevie Ray Vaughn’s music.

But this is a story about what Wang wants to do: Become the first professional Chinese kicker in the National Football League. And to understand what Wang wants to do, it is essential to understand where he comes from and how he’s gotten to this point.


Longshot at best. There are many good kickers in the NFL and many more coming up in the college ranks. The job of a kicker in the NFL is already one of the most stressful out there. Sure they don't get hit or anything but alot of the time, an entire game could come down to the last FG. Now add to that pressure, the hopes of an entire nation! That's just too much.

Furuhashi, legendary swimmer, dead at 80

Legendary swimmer and former Japanese Olympic Committee President Hironoshin Furuhashi has died in Rome, where the swimming world championships are being held, a senior Japan Swimming Federation official said Sunday. He was 80.

Furuhashi, nicknamed the "Flying fish of Fujiyama," was discovered dead lying in his hotel room bed Sunday morning. The cause of death was not immediately known.

"After getting the mournful news, I really was completely in shock. I am very upset," said current JOC President Tsunekazu Takeda. "He was a JOC adviser who acted as a looking glass for us and he was the pride of the sports world. He was working tirelessly till the end in our bid to bring the (2016) Olympics to Tokyo."

A national hero who held a number of key posts in the sports world and was honorary president of the Japan Swimming Federation, Furuhashi set world records in the men's 400-meter and 1,500-meter freestyle events at the national championships in 1948.

He set the marks at the same time of the 1948 London Olympics, which Japan was not invited to participate in for its role in World War II.


Most people forget how good Japan was in sports in the 40s, 50s and 60s with their swimmers and gynmasts.

What's Behind Japan's Love Affair with Robots?

Source: TIME

If Japanese engineers had their way, we might soon be cheering on a robotic World Series. Every year or two, Japanese researchers roll out a new robotic invention — the latest to grab headlines earlier this month was a mechanized baseball duo of a batter and pitcher that can throw 90% of its pitches in the strike zone. And while the majority of Japanese robotic inventions — from the dazzling to the horrifying —have largely been unable to break into the mass market, Japanese scientists aren't likely to short-circuit their robotic ambitions anytime soon: Robotic technology plays a larger role in Japan than anywhere else in the world.

In the past several years, Japan has committed several tens of millions of dollars to an industry whose revenues it hopes could surge to nearly $70 billion by 2025. Japan already employs over a quarter of a million industrial robot workers —more than any other nation — in an effort to counter high labor costs and to support further mechanization of its industries, and would like to see that number go up to one million over the next 15 years. "Robotics is to be for the Japanese economy in the 21st century what automobiles were in the 20th," says Jennifer Robertson, a professor of anthropology at the University of Michigan.

After all, this is the land where salarymen pour over comic books on their way to work and where stay-at-home moms are also videogame afficionados. In many ways, robotics combines two of Japan's biggest cultural crushes: technology and animation. Some experts say the roots of the national love of robotics are in Japan's Shinto religion, which blurs the line between the inanimate and animate and in which followers believe that all things, including objects, can possess living spirits. "Robots have a long and friendly history in Japan, and humanoid robots are considered to be living things and even desirable members of families," says Robertson. While popular culture in the west often casts robots as forces of evil that pose a threat to world peace — or worse, job security — Japan "tends to see robots as a force for good," says Damien Thong, a technology analyst with Macquarie Securities in Tokyo.

I would agree with this article although using Shinto religion might be a stretch. I would also add that after WWII, Japan was stripped of everything and they needed something to get the workforce going again. Cars, gadgets and robotics were the solution. Once that got going, Japan strived to be #1 in those categories and hat is where we are now.

A Big Fat Pampered PIG!

Source: China.org.cn

Li Yuan never thought a pig could bring so much happiness - a laid-back sort that enjoys music, provides company on neighborhood strolls and makes friends easily.

Two years ago, Li bought the piglet from a market in Beijing. The male pig, a Bama miniature, had a short and round body.

Such piglets typically weigh 15 or 20 kg, or 33 to 44 pounds.

It was the pig's certain charm that sealed the sale.

"I found him looking like a lovely baby at my first glance," said Li, patting the pig's now-huge belly. "Oh, my boy, you are destined to meet me."

Told that raising a pig when she was in her 50s could bring good fortune, Li cherished the pig so much she named him Laifu (or "fortune comes").

"Indeed, he brings me good business and a peaceful soul," said Li, who is a merchant.

How it is in China everything is a superstition? So fattening up a PIG to 50 years old bring good fortune. I don't know who will live longer? The owner of the pig!

Japanese always try to have new, unique and wonderful trends. Itasha is a trend to decorate car bodies with fictional characters of anime, manga, or video games.

Phone lost 4 days at sea found

A mobile phone lost at sea for four days washed up in perfect condition in Taiwan after drifting 37 km (23 miles) and was discovered by a park lifeguard who tracked down the shocked owner to return it, the finder said on Friday.

Yu Hsin-leh of Taipei lost the phone on July 24 while snorkeling near the Taiwan port city of Keelung, Taiwan's United Daily News reported.

On Monday, it turned up in Longdong Bay Park on the island's northeasternmost cape after floating past numerous towns and rocky outcroppings.

A small water-resistant case had protected the phone at sea, said park lifeguard Lin Huan-chuan, who found it.

Lin said he recharged the battery and called Yu's wife by finding her in the phone's list of saved numbers.

"All the phone's functions were normal," Lin said. "The owner was extremely surprised as he figured he had lost it for good."

Come on people. Cell phone while snorkeling!? Leave your cellphone behind when doing relaxing activities. If I snorkeled and my phone vibrated, I'd drown!

Jet Li, Jackie Chan and others in 'Founding' film

Zhang Ziyi appears as a schoolgirl that catches the eye of Mao Zedong :)

Top Chinese and Hong Kong actors will appear in a film depicting the founding of the People's Republic of China, China Film Group head Han Sanping said at a press conference this week.

"The Great Cause of the Country's Founding" ("Jian Guo Da Ye"), also directed by Han, will star Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Andy Lau, Tang Guoqiang and Zhang Guoli.

The film focuses on the Chinese Civil War from 1945 to 1949, and is set for release in China on Sept. 17, and Hong Kong around Sept. 20. It may also get a screening in Taiwan, thanks to the recent warming in ties between the two sides.

China celebrates the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic, under the Chinese Communist Party, on October 1 this year.

This is a poorly writen article with no research at all. To promote a movie as a Jackie Chan and Jet Li starred movie is absolutely false advertising. Amazing how some 'journalists' can write garbage and still have jobs.

Looking at the imdb entry, major stars like Jet Li and Jackie Chan will just be cameos. Jet Li's character has about 3 lines of dialogues while Jackie's character has no dialogue.

I still want to see it cause the Chinese Civil War has always interested me and I want to see how distorted the facts will be to celebrate the communist victory.

Playing 'spot the celeb' will be a bonus :)
