Q: So you think I'm Chinese?

I am hoping this challenge will put an end to this repeated stupidity once and for all. I'm totally hacked off with being called a liar, so I am going to do something most people (myself included) usually say never do. I'm going to give out my personal details on an internet forum.

 

This is aimed particulary at Crimo who is constantly saying I (and others) are actually Chinese, but the offer is open to any others who think the same.

 

IM me and I'll give you my FB link, you can message me there and I'll call you some names, what is more I'll link to what I say here. Further you can message (on FB) my friends to confirm I'm not Chinese. The FB account is several years old and pre-dates both my time in China AND my time on this site.

 

I won't send that link to any anonymous posters or any 'new' posters, (I'm not THAT stupid), only to the regular posters here.  I will only be able to do this in the evening as I don't have a VPN at work and I'll need that to link to my FB account.

 

Hopefully, this will put an end to these constant snide inferences, that MOST posters have long ago accepted were false.

Dont do it, and dont worry about what some think on here.

The ones that you are hoping to prove this to will probably not take you up on this anyway.

Just let them quarrel and bicker between themselves, and you just sit back and watch and laugh.

"Hacked off"? Only my Chinese students use that expression (Crazy English - two years ago). All Chinese students have a FB account, so that's no proof.

 

Skill Testing Question #1: when you are being intimate with your girlfriend, does she say:

A) Is it in yet?

B) What was that, a spoon?

C) For the love of God, I've been stabbed with a sword!

D) What girlfriend? My parents won't let me have one.

 

Skill Testing Question #2: what do you really care what other online users think of you?

A) Nothing - not worth worrying about...I have beer to drink.

B) Everything! Face very important!

C) I'm naturally insecure (read: British) and so I must prove myself to others.

D) I'm totally insecure online but a total prick in real life (read: French) and therefore I must challenge you to an online duel (fought by my father as I have a cold and cannot leave the house).

 

Why do you bother? Why did I bother to respond (hint: I have beer to drink, hence, Canadian and I wouldn't give a rat's tookus what other users thought of me).

I don't think you are Chinese. Chinese guys are not  that open minded as you are, to have such a nick name here. It makes  people think of other things, like " huge erection".   Even  if a Chinese guy is that open mined like you, I don't think he is that smart with English.

I don't care if you are Chinese, British, Romanian, Mexican or anything else.

You are an arrogant self righteous prick who tries to bully anyone that doesn't share your pro-China anti-America ideology.

How the hell are you any different that what you accuse crimo of being?

Hypocrisy can be blinding.

Have a beer and relax.

I have never been this petty on this site before but enough is enough.

  Hugh, I think the only person who really believes this stuff is Crimo, God bless him. In actual fact it makes me wonder whether he really is a teacher, he should be familiar enough with speakers of a second language to recognize when someone truly is a native speaker. But the method of circular thinking he unconsciously employs will always convince him that you, me and Loke are one Chinese person, employed by the government to sow seeds for the CCP. God forbid he should have to admit to himself that he is mistaken. What a loss of face that would be.

  I honestly think i'm done with this argument. You know, the speaking up when you hear words of vitriol spoken against the Chinese, I don't see it going anywhere. So much of it is just venting, even if there will always be some folks who take it to an uglier level, I think the respectful presence of Chinese visitors to this site says far more than I can, by example alone.

Isnt it strange on the day that facebook announced it had one Billion users http://news.sky.com/story/993232/zuckerberg-facebook-has-one-billion-users

That those this post was aimed at, who claim to be from 'the west' say they don't have an account?

 

How convenient.

I. Could. Give. A. Rats'. Ass.

 

Mainly, because the little critters are faster than I am, and way too smart to wait around for me in pubs. So you are not Chinese. Congratulations. Just post what you think. If someone else doesn't like it, it's okay. I post stuff all the time a few folks don't like, but that's okay, too. Live, learn, and don't drink that baiju...it packs a bite! laugh

You're not British, your English is not good enough.  Its good but not perfect.  I just scrolled down the page reading your posts and you make silly little mistakes that a native English speaker wouldn't make.   If I actually cared about this argument I would point them out to you but I really cant be arsed.

So, OP, you're not French? I thought you were French. Well bollocks, wrong again. Bad night for me.

Wait, ARE you French? I don't think you have clearly stated your nationality.

I don't care who or what you are, but for the love of all that is holy, would people please stop posting questions about themselves? It's annoying.

Only a drunk Chinese guy would care what this forum thought about him.....your busted bro.  Put down the cheap chinese beer and step away before you have to go to work tomorrow without taking a show and sleeping in the same clothes.....oh wait, that would happen anyway.

Hello  'peeps',

 

Now I wonder if our american cousins know where that one comes from?   I know that my mates will.

 

Some of you will know  that I'm on my travels at the moment, currently in Qingdao, popping out to take a look at few bits of rock in the next day or two.

 

Well aren't things getting interesting on here.

 

Message to the 'usual suspects' and their blind followers  -  unlike my two comrades, I DO have an agenda here.

  

I've been a member of this site over the past 3 years or more and have come to a few conclusions which I BELIEVE, can't prove, yet.  I'll let you know about them soon when I have more time.   It's a long story.   Please don't go jumping too quickly to conclusions yet Crimo and co, all will be revealed soon.   'Good things come to he who waits'.   Just chat among yourselves for the time being.  

I'm a bit busy at the moment doing important stuff.   dan dan dan.   A clue for the more observant of Crimo's clan  -   read very carefully what I have posted in the recent past.  

 

Got to sleep now, busy few days ahead for me.   

 

As for an answer to your question    -   I know that you're not Chinese Huge, and I'm not over impressed  with Facebook because it's american, of course.

Ok, firstly my apologies for a, this thread and b. resurrecting it. As far as I'm concerned this is the final post from myself on this topic.

 

Of all the people on this site one person only came forward and took up my offer to look the 'real' me up on FB. This person has since said I "check out". No-one else came forward, although the offer still stands, so I have to assume everyone else (including the 'usual suspects' to steal a loke line) either in their hearts know I am who I claim to be or don't want to find out as they are chicken hearted cowards who cannot face up to their own mistakes.

 

Secondly, and the part that will probably please most of you, I have given up trying to persuade you of who I am and will take the advice 'why do you give a f***' so eloquently given by some. I no longer care what you think. To that end I will continue to challenge the racism, the sweeping generalisations and I will continue to point out hypocrisy when I see it but I will just block out the snide innuendos that mainly originate from that pri** who used to piss me off.

 

Thank you for bearing with me and like I said, from me, no more of these navel gazing posts.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
