they have no land to play football so they suck at it, but ping pong can be played indoors despite the population congestion, so everybody plays and talent is easy to spot.

It's because they are fond of little bats and have small balls.

Define 'extremely' ....

 

'cause all Asians are good at it. Japs were on the top before China relaxed the Great Wall ... and there are brazillion of Chinese, so ain't that difficult to have few no.1's.

I know the country in EU, which is on the top spot in the world (percentage wise) by the no. of the highest Himalayan peaks their residents climbed .. Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and more ... buTT ... mentioned country has less than 2M residents ...

 

Other thing I'd say, it's a physical constitution, i.e. LeBron James can't be too good at ping 'cause he's too tall.

Because you can send your kids to ping pong schools that force them to play from early morning to late at night, only interupted by some normal school

We have sports schools for it and parents send kids to train, just like soccer schools or baseball camps in other countries.
But other countries have produced ping pong talent too like a former Swedish player (named Voldenir? Not sure)
Norwegians are also great at shuttle lock (羽毛球)... So, you tell me why.

You know, the name 'ping pong' sounds a bit racist. Perhaps referring to it as table tennis might be more WOKE if you are into that sort of perversion.

Well here's something more pervert, check that out (https://b23.tv/aSaJzj). Apparently some Chinese wanted to impress his partner, so he made a table tennis machine.
Surely, the core of the technology came from the West (it must have been, and Chinese stole it lol.)

The answer is very simple. Think about why Americans are so good at basketball.

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
