Around China : Finbar commented on news Bad China Day? British Expat Turns to Robbery and Violence

Yeah, I suppose. I wouldn't be surprised if such a thing happened at school, but it seems weird when it happens between people out in public who don't seem to be acquainted :/ Full Comment>>

Around China : Finbar commented on news Bad China Day? British Expat Turns to Robbery and Violence

I don't really see the connection between feeling insulted and deciding to rob someone. Having had issues with the police here, I'm inclined to call bullshit on this whole story. If it is true, the guy's a bit of a weirdo. Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news Mark Zuckerberg’s Speech in Chinese Unplanned, Facebook CEO Caught Up in Audience’s Excitement

I don't think it's as easy as walking up to someone and asking whether they'd go and unblock your website... Censorship in China was hot topic during the Olympics, and at that time the government simply denied actively censoring websites like Facebook. If they say they're not the ones to blame, asking them to do ... Full Comment>>

Around China : Finbar commented on news 19 Year Old Shanghai Girl Seeks Temporary Boyfriends to Fund Travels

Here I thought I wouldn't be able to travel much the coming months, being on a bit of a budget. Guess I could call it an 'experiment' and see if the same works for men. Full Comment>>

Around China : Finbar commented on news Man’s Business Trip to China Ends With Prison

Still, even when it's obvious there is anti-Japanese/foreign sentiment (particularly in the media), it sounds more likely to me like the guy couldn't hold his liquor or was just a dick, than that he got tricked into it. I've seen some weird shit happen when drinking with Japanese friends, and actually wouldn't be ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news Mark Zuckerberg’s Speech in Chinese Unplanned, Facebook CEO Caught Up in Audience’s Excitement

Four years should be plenty of time to get to a decent level, especially considering that his wife and her relatives would be able to give him pointers (even teachers here joke about the need for students to get a local girlfriend). Not to mention the fact that he could get himself whatever private teacher/studying ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news The Lost Years: Difficulties Facing Chinese Employees of Foreign Companies

I actually thought this was a fairly decent article. The fact that Chinese companies/government make it hard for foreigners to further their career in China doesn't mean the opposite can't be true. If anything, I'd expect a little empathy towards Chinese employees in foreign companies experiencing similar problems. Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news 5 Ways to Combat Homesickness in China

I think the best way to combat home sickness is just to keep busy. I never felt home sick the first year and a half or so that I spent in China, because I was simply too busy having fun, drinking and making friends. It was after a while, when things settled down and I started having a lot of time to myself, that I ... Full Comment>>

The whole magical semen thing seems unnecessary. I mean, either he rapes the girls, or bullshits them into doing it voluntarily. Doing both seems a bit odd. Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news Are Foreign Men Good Enough for Chinese Women?

The whole premise of this article is a load of shit, as it seems to assume both Chinese and foreign men all share their own respective personalities. Chinese men all behave in a certain way, and foreign men all behave in a certain way. That's basically the impression I got from this article. Not only does it bunch ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news China’s International Image and Influence: What Foreigners “Really” Think

Somehow, I get the impression that the survey's questions were biased (shocker!). I can't imagine the survey having contained answers like 'Theyre rude/arrogant/selfish/etc', even though there should be. This seems more like yet another way to boost one's ego, rather than a survey of actual value. How are ... Full Comment>>

Around China : Finbar commented on news ‘Show Me Your Boobs’, Foreign man asks Female Reporter

Was wondering the same thing. With media here being as censored as it is, how would something like this ever get out to the public unless someone deliberately tried to turn this into a big deal? And whats up with that call for deportation? I get to listen to racist comments every day, and get physically shoved ... Full Comment>>

Trying to give your patient the best possible care and failing, or not giving a fuck and failing are two different things. I could understand the woman getting a miscarriage because there was nothing they could've done to help, but their refusal to even try and help her out is just horrible. I hope their ...

I get messages from my school's office prior to every Chinese holiday, a few days after which I often get another message notifying me that things have since changed. The make ... Full Comment>>

This entire topic, and all the items on the list, are debatable and depend on personal preference/experience. I enjoyed reading it, as the author seems to be a glass-half-full kind of guy, which makes a nice change to all the fairly negative stuff that I keep reading. It's easy to come up with reasons to dislike all ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Finbar commented on news Conversations With “Leftover” Men and Women at China’s Singles Events

How come none of them seem to be looking for a partner with a sense of humour/nice personality/(insert actual personality trait here). It seems most of them would be best of hiring a maid or getting a sugar daddy, rather than a husband/wife... And what the hell, someone from '86 is considered a leftover? That's two ...

Funny how everyone seems focused on the poorly phrased title of the topic rather than the obscene amount of money some people got swindled out of. I agree with some others, and don't particularly enjoy getting called laowai myself (which happens all the time), but it's something you just have to get used to when you ... Full Comment>>

That got me thinking about what happened earlier tonight... Some random guy I'd never seen before walked up to me while I was grabbing dinner with my girlfriend and started asking what I was doing with 'that Chinese girl' (or bitch, as I heard 小姐 can also mean as much in some cases, correct me if I'm wrong...).

Around China : Finbar commented on news Netizens Favor Chinese Woman in New Alleged ‘Good Samaritan Scam’

I agree that a lot of foreigners here drive just as poorly as the locals, and of course it's idiotic how it's usually the same people who complain about Chinese society who are the first to drop their own morals and act like morons. On the other hand, even knowing there are some rotten apples out there, I find the ... Full Comment>>

Same thing here. I don't have a balcony, but I see all kinds of stuff getting flung out of the windows of my apartment complex. Usually it's stuff like plastic bags or (what I assume to be) remains of fruit/veggies, but I nearly got hit by some rubble at some point while hanging out my window for a smoke. It's sad ...

I find it hard to believe that she went from celibate to banging 8 guys in half a year (wouldn't be surprised if it were 4-5 months, as a semester abroad tends to be shorter - not that it matters). Sure, as an Asian girl in some Western country she probably got more attention than she was used to, but like everyone ... Full Comment>>
