China def a ****hole. Mostly b/c of food and poor hygiene of locals, housing/transportation are actually quite nice.

Oh, and willful ignorance of the last 200 years or so of medical science because none of it came out of China. Unless you have cancer/something serious, then western medicine works.

Fun Fact (that I'm not certain is a fact):

Traditional Chinese Medicine had a revival during the Communist Revolution even though most leaders didn't believe in it because it:

a) Served a political purpose vis a vis nationalism and anti-colonialism
b) They knew they didn't have the resources to provide healthcare to the population so believing in traditional Chinese medicine was a way to "meet the needs" of the population on the cheap.

Have fun. Singapore and HK are two of my favorite cities and I'm considering moving to both.

Brutal. Sounds legit though.


Overall, while there are obvious disadvantages, I can't complain. Big step up because of extremely low social dysfunction, extremely high parental investment in offspring, no massive dysgenic reproduction patterns, high trust, very low out of wedlock birthrate (big cause of point 1), nearly non existent violent crime, relatively capitalistic for us little guys, extremely low taxes.


Still a ****hole tho.

Unfortunately he has been crying uncle for months over this...

I even offered to hook him up for a training camp with my former coach and sparring partners who train out of a different gym now... alas.

Is that chicken? The play is always ribs and brisket.

Then maybe pulled pork. Then maybe sausage. Then maybe turkey if they have it. Chicken is last and usually a pass, unless dieting.

*not pictured ribs and sausage

I got the chicken because I'd heard Snow's was known for their chicken. And it was very good but the brisket was the best part of the meal.

Going to take a lot of racquetball and hipster biking to burn all that off. Looks to have been worth it, though.
