Articles : jknox00 commented on news A Third Red Scare: Should America Fear the Rise of China?

Joe McCarthy is, tragically, perceived as having created a grossly exaggerated 'scare' in the 50s'. Ironically, he is perceived this way because there were indeed many communists in the media and to this day have taken revenge by destroying the man's reputation. The facts are different. McCarthy absolutely and ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : jknox00 commented on tanman 's blog Black Holes & Little Emperors

I love writing too but what the hell was this long poem about? You are experiencing depression? May I suggest spending a lot less time writing for the sake of writing about yourself as you write for writing's sake. Like the old saying "One writes for writing" and of course I sway to the left and surely I'm turning ... Full Comment>>

Articles : jknox00 commented on news The “Unfriendly” Expats? Stereotypes of Russians in China

I suppose beauty is cultural. If fake-fur short jackets, tight jeans, loud high-heels and lots of cheap jewelry and 'hair accessories' is your thing then you might find Russian prostitutes very attractive. I suppose it looks a bit 80s to others. Yes, I've been cornered by drunken football hooligans (later carried ... Full Comment>>

Yes all women are like that. It is a matter of degree. Most women are a 6. You married a 10. She is trying to keep herself to an 8 but she WILL get to a 10 soon. You are not 'free-spirited' but rather she has money as the PRIMARY concern. Above you or anything else. You just don't know it yet. Full Comment>>

Articles : jknox00 commented on news The “Unfriendly” Expats? Stereotypes of Russians in China

It is not my expression. It is a common expression used in North America. The 'image' or 'stereotype' of Russians are some poorly dressed, uncultured 'thugs' and we have a picture in our minds they drink vodka and hit each other with the empty bottles and then piss on the one who falls first. Or drunks having ... Full Comment>>

Around China : jknox00 commented on news British Woman and Chinese Husband Struggle with Injustice from Shandong Authorities

The UK is something like Canada - they have very strict standards and bans on spouses from friendly countries. They will never let this law-abiding spouse into the UK. But Muslim refugees will somehow take over entire parts of England, riot and behead people in the streets. Next year 1000 more will march declaring ... Full Comment>>

No sorry to disappoint you but these stories of yours simply aren't true. Russian is not spoken in laboratories and nobody ever believes a beautiful woman must speak Russian. Nobody thinks Russians are world leaders in technology anymore. Sorry but you are hearing fables and in 2013, Russians are seen as what in the ... Full Comment>>

Mmm Cabbage Soup! I do agree there is nothing quite like a cold piece of fish and some cabbage soup! I also agree very few Russians look like Dolph Lundgren although Putin looks quite athletic and doesn't wear shirts to work either. Russian crime rates have declined here as Canada improved its ability to reject ... Full Comment>>

I'm trying to understand what a Russian Restaurant would be? Lots of cabbage dishes? That come with some kind of coleslaw and vodka? A plate of steamed 'beats and cabbage roll'? 10 different kinds of potato and onion? do they have cabbage vodka maybe? And for deserve some 'candied cabbage with beat syrup'? Full Comment>>

Dolph Lundgren is Swedish yes? A lot Swedes are tall and/blond. My 'stereotype' of Russians is 'stout and swarthy' and often of a dark complexion and maybe some are ruddy/sallow in complexion. I think of Americans or Dutch as athletic. I think of Russians as being entirely unathletic but then wanting to stick their ... Full Comment>>

Easily the worst best 'douchebag article' of the year. No, actually I don't spit phlegm and no its not a secret little desire. In fact, to this day I still maintain a rule about being the least 'pushy' as possible and probably to a fault. Only exceptions if I'm purposely blocking queue-jumper (I'm brutally 'pushy' ...

No Westerner should consider marrying a Chinese bride unless they are fully prepared to understand the value of money in their marriage. It is EVERYTHING and it will become his business the moment money is in danger. Let me simplify: Money is her only value as a human being. So if you earn 30% less this year - she ... Full Comment>>

They are hired to be native English speakers, Caucasian and to help the school attract students. They are hired to be an interesting foreign face to the students. Lastly, James was hired to help ...

I can't disagree. I've often wondered what happened in this 5000 year history when I see some of the splendor and luxury in the ancient China - some beds looked to be great. I think I might like some of the older customs and I'd probably think traditional fire-pot dinners were awesome IF my stomach could handle it. ... Full Comment>>

I liked the reasonable perspective on the 'expat bubbles'. Like anything else - try and find a reasonable, healthy balanced place in life. If you come to China and find yourself living in a western building, eating western food, a year later still unable to speak mandarin and almost any friends are also foreigners? ... Full Comment>>

No, there are not many unqualified "teachers" because you are, by being hired, proven 'Qualified'. And we can add 'stay hired'. Now, as for anyone there for easy money and girls? These guys are giving foreigners a bad name. I strongly agree. But those guys are as likely to hold a Masters from a respectable ... Full Comment>>
