Discussion:
Why I moved to China

I can buy beer at 4am. Or if I want, Henessy, I might add that a 4
pack of heineken tall boys cost about five bucks here. You can't do
that in Canada, and I might add there's less 7-11's there too which
only compounds the issue.

I pay just over $200 canadian (220 US) for a house, per month. A
house. I get paid about 2x as much as I used to make in Canada working
for an engineering company or a certain university's nuclear physics
department (as an outside contractor of course, thats where the money
is)... You might think it's strange, but the particular location I
moved to is always sunny and warm, with very little pollution. Most
people use scooters or bicycles, or just walk. Especially
schoolchildren. They don't use busses. The kids walk. At around 5pm
the streets are flooded with schoolchildren walking home. Oh and did I
mention I leave my bike unlocked outside my work, and my home, in my
suburb, because there is no crime? No grafitti anywhere either? My
food bill is about forty bucks a week (not including eating out of
course) and I might add I'm married with children. They even still
want to give me my canadian baby bonus.

Oh and did I mention, I only work for two and a half hours a day, and
can spend the rest of my time doing whatever I fancy, like.. martial
arts? Heck, even with a 2 hour practice schedule I have time to watch
tv for six hours a day. Not that I watch much TV, on my 42 inch that I
bought for about $200 canadian. After work today I was hungry on the
way home so I ordered a bucket of KFC and it came to six canadian
dollars. Fascinating.

The catch? MMA schools are few and far between, that is, your choices
are limited. Oddly enough there is a dearth of traditional instruction
too. At least, most instruction which is, generally speaking,
publically available, does not advertise as such, even in chinese. My
advice is to come prepapred with what you already know. Mainly it's a
time thing. If you want time, you got it here. It's kind of funny
though, for all my digging I found much better instruction in Toronto.
Then again the city i'm living in is about 10% of Toronto's size.
Anyways.

I'm finding it hard to justify a move back to Canada at this point. On
the whole I actually enjoy more freedoms here than there, and I live a
far better lifestyle than my parents did, and if you knew my parents
and me back before I moved here that statement would probably
dumbfound you.

And with the manufacturing deficits and hyperinflation beginning to
grip north america, buying property over here is just starting to make
a whole lot more sense, too.

Aw, man, go peddle your smutty fantasies somewhere else. Mine are
plenty nasty without involving the likes of you. I personally don't
go past that one with the herd of water buffalo; a mud, jello, and
pudding pit; a harem of leggy supermodels; and a can of cling
peaches. Y'all know that one, I'm sure. Right guys? You with me?
Guys...?

Anyway, I'm glad for you if the Chinese gay porn trade hasn't been put
down by the opressive government. You go let your freak flag fly,
bro! But please stop fantasizing about me. Makes me feel all dirty
and stuff.

Some guys are like the energizer bunnies.
I was always a bit ethereal, lost in lost....
There were moments when, especially on the road, hungry, I could feel
the heat and passion so much more.

And there were guys who's anatomy's just had one switch, on... and they
went.

One time I was with some girls who came over with their biker guys...
they were trying to impress me, overwhelm me. So I got one, the leader
of the bikers got the other girl, and his buddy got to pace around my
apartment. I stalled for time... this guy had an attention span of a
minnow. I showed him manuscripts of ancient hindu texts with reversed
svastikas as the border decorative motive. I had him thumbing thru the
things with a couple beers I supplied. But I needed time.

I wasn't like Frazer. I just got going when he was barging in on his
'leader' and then me, to hurry up.

I kind of wished I had one of those instantaneous on switches like some
guys. Ah well. He didn't spill his beers on the manuscripts and I had my
20 min's of workout and life went on.

You may think that I did, however from an objective standpoint, there
would be levels of stupidity. For example, as stupid as you think I
am, I am not stupid enough to nominate myself for the stupid post of
the year award.

I'm also not stupid enough to let you put words in my mouth - that is
to say, it's my contest (not yours) and while it is certainly amusing
to see you try and step in to make an award or nomination, you do not
have that ability. Only I can do that in the context of this thread,
anyways. It kind of smacks of "no, you are" in a schoolyard, you might
say. I wouldn't, but you might.

Although.. in the end... I wouldn't say it was stupid of you to have
tried. I may have in fact been stupider than you. Now you know. And
knowing is half the battle.

attempt to be something you aren't... it's just ridiculous.
I'm still trying to figure out why someone with so much free time on
his hands is so excited about being able to buy cheap beer at four
o'clock in the morning. Hell, I work eight hour days with an hour
(each way) commute and I've still never had a problem getting a six
pack when I want one.

Hell, he's got nothin' man. My first job - while still in high school
- I was a highly visible representative of a multi-billion dollar
international company that serves millions of customers on every

And it probably did you a whole bunch of good...such as developing a life-long

So you worked in a janitorial position, as an OUTSIDE contractor.
Mike... I really think that his status as an OUTSIDE contractor at
the very least qualifies him to use the title "Custodial Engineer"
rather than just plain old "Janitor".
'Muck-Raker' might be a better description...

I wouldn't say aversion... I'm not a big fan of their food, but it
has more to do with there being so much out there that's better. If I
want a burger I'll head off to Five Guys or someplace like that.

I just don't get the Heineken thing, seriously. It's the same piss-

stick it in a green bottle and raise the price a few bucks.

I can buy beer at 4am. Or if I want, Henessy, I might add that a 4
pack of heineken tall boys cost about five bucks here. You can't do
that in Canada, and I might add there's less 7-11's there too which
only compounds the issue.
I pay just over $200 canadian (220 US) for a house, per month. A
house. I get paid about 2x as much as I used to make in Canada working
for an engineering company or a certain university's nuclear physics
department (as an outside contractor of course, thats where the money
is)... You might think it's strange, but the particular location I
moved to is always sunny and warm, with very little pollution. Most
people use scooters or bicycles, or just walk. Especially
schoolchildren. They don't use busses. The kids walk. At around 5pm
the streets are flooded with schoolchildren walking home. Oh and did I
mention I leave my bike unlocked outside my work, and my home, in my
suburb, because there is no crime? No grafitti anywhere either? My
food bill is about forty bucks a week (not including eating out of
course) and I might add I'm married with children. They even still
want to give me my canadian baby bonus.
Oh and did I mention, I only work for two and a half hours a day, and
can spend the rest of my time doing whatever I fancy, like.. martial
arts? Heck, even with a 2 hour practice schedule I have time to watch
tv for six hours a day. Not that I watch much TV, on my 42 inch that I
bought for about $200 canadian. After work today I was hungry on the
way home so I ordered a bucket of KFC and it came to six canadian
dollars. Fascinating.
The catch? MMA schools are few and far between, that is, your choices
are limited. Oddly enough there is a dearth of traditional instruction
too. At least, most instruction which is, generally speaking,
publically available, does not advertise as such, even in chinese. My
advice is to come prepapred with what you already know. Mainly it's a
time thing. If you want time, you got it here. It's kind of funny
though, for all my digging I found much better instruction in Toronto.
Then again the city i'm living in is about 10% of Toronto's size.
Anyways.
I'm finding it hard to justify a move back to Canada at this point. On
the whole I actually enjoy more freedoms here than there, and I live a
far better lifestyle than my parents did, and if you knew my parents
and me back before I moved here that statement would probably
dumbfound you.
And with the manufacturing deficits and hyperinflation beginning to
grip north america, buying property over here is just starting to make
a whole lot more sense, too.
-
LOL.

China's official inflation rate is like 6.8%. In reality, it is far
higher.

They just had petroleum shortages and some civil unrest over there as
a result.

Good luck in bubblopolis.

Taiwan had decades of foreign land ownership restrictions, lifted in 2002.
Taiwan's property market was locked in a recession for around a decade following
significant overbuilding in the 1980s and the early 1990s, which resulted in an
oversupply of housing. Low rental yields (which is why your rent is so low) and
poor prospects for realizing significant returns on investment have kept foreign
investors away.

But you go for it, Ollie. Those 4am beers make it all worthwhile, eh?

You speak of "low rental yields" but your focus is misplaced; you
should instead speak of high rental yields and why they are so high;
it's because people think you can make money investing in an asset.

The reason the financial world is on the brink of collapse is because
of well-placed, older gents like yourself, who think they know what

You are seriously comparing China's record of repression of fundamental personal
& political freedoms to Canada's or the USA's? Dude, you are clueless.
No I'm not. I'm relating the personal experience of having lived a
significant amount of time in the countries under discussion.
You think you have more freedoms in China than in the USA or Canada?

What exactly are you free to do in China that you are not permitted to do in the
USA or Canada?

I can think of PLENTY of things you cannot do in China that are simply part of
life in democracies.

Just a simple one or two for your simple mind....how about the use of an
uncensored internet? How about complaining in print about how the govt sucks
because of it? Put an ad in the local paper about how the Chinese govt sucks cos
it has censored the 'net, and how you're going to run for public office in the
next elections to change that.

After the police pick you up, you may have pause to consider the benefits of a
free press, free speech and representative goverment.

That cheap 4am beer still tastes good though, eh Ollie?

I'm not sure why you keep mentioning Taiwan;
Because that's where your NNTP posting host of - 122.123.99.60 - resolves to; the
T'ai-pei region of Taipei, Taiwan.
I've already told you I don't live anywhere near that place.
Bullshit.

You have
a lot to learn if you think that a nntp posting host is a reliable
indication of where a person is.
There's a few ways to mask and stealth your NNTP posting host.....but that's not
the point. 122.123.99.60 resolves to Taiwan, and you CANNOT use an unfettered
Taiwanese ISP out of mainland China. Period. The reason is that the fking Chinese

you're in China, your email is getting read. Yeah...freedoms....

you're not qualified to speak about either.
Why not? Are the economic facts not discernable to all?
Of course - and if you care to check what I said eatlier, I was right
about the price of gold, too. Why, I've made 30% in the last five or
so months alone.

yesterday? You've been warned and you know it. Just because you have
been continuously warned for decades doesn't make what's really going

Granted.. living in a town currently experiencing a mining boom is a
good second choice. But when it runs out, I don't think I'd want to be

Pina coladas. Although you do tend to lie about it, here's a quote to
google: "I don't drink alcohol". Although even Wayne Dobson has
wondered in the past if you have a drinking problem. I'm left
believing this is a case of classic projection, Peter. Only you know
why you're so fixated on trying to prove that other people are
alcoholics on R.M-A.

Anyways I think this is the correct link, all I did was search for
"greendistantstar pina colada" and clicked on the first link anyways.
There's many more where you brag about your drinking prowess.

It's not a reply to you when I note than the US dollar has lost 8.3%
of it's value in the last FOUR MONTHS.

Moving to China was the smartest thing I've ever done. Martial artists
have historically been making changes to government and society behind
the scenes and have historically had a connection to asia, on the
whole (even if only considering the second fact I present here, that
asia has a larger population than europe and america, and that even
not considering that martial artists comprise a larger percentage of
the population in asia than in europe or america).

Get the fuck out of america before it's too late.

Their boom has been on the backs of the most immense ecological
catastrophe ever wrought, dwarfing that which the other industrialized

Because if we don't convince them they'll do it...well...they're already doing
it, but when you look at the numbers for 20, 30 years hence, they're scary.

My point is that it's hypocritical of the west to tell Indians and Chinese that
they can't leave behind their third-world lifestyles and have aspirations of
first-world conditions.

Problem is, this 'first world' lifestyle comes at a heavy cost to the
environment. Consider the ongoing energy and resource requirements of putting a
couple of extra billion people into petrol-burning cars and fast-food,
energy-intensive societies.

So what do we say to them..."We enjoy and we'll continue to enjoy our high
standard of living...but you can't have it too, because you'll screw the planet
if you do." ?

The west was not ever a grotesque misallocation of capital onto
industrial capacity that was unnecessary. China is just building more
and more and more...it is supplyside economics on crack & roids. Grow
grow grow no matter how inefficiently and no matter the lack of
demand, just keep producing. Buy your own stocks on the Shanghai if
necessary. China uses vastly more energy per unit GDP than the west
does and has little to no pollution control on industry. It's all
about more more more more industry. That is not ever what the west
did.

It'll never happen. They're convinced that they can have the good

policies that our "schools" of economics have pimped out are
responsible for this godawful situation.

China's, and the world's, infatuation or addiction to supplyside
growth growth growth is SO pre-peak oil. It could only work so long
as energy supply was expanding. Upon contraction, it won't. And,
yes, oil supply has contracted from Peak in 2005.

I've no idea what you're talking about, so yeah, knock yourself out....
Pina coladas. Although you do tend to lie about it, here's a quote to
google: "I don't drink alcohol".
I have a great recipe for alcohol-free Pina Coladas. The key is unsweetened
pineapple juice. Ask Fraser.
Although even Wayne Dobson has

wondered in the past if you have a drinking problem.
Oh, he's a joke, isn't he?
Post by Renli
I'm left
believing this is a case of classic projection, Peter. Only you know
why you're so fixated on trying to prove that other people are
alcoholics on R.M-A.
Only the ones who leave their wife and child at home at 4am to find cheap beer.
If ever there was a pathology for alcoholic behaviour, that's it.
Post by Renli
Anyways I think this is the correct link, all I did was search for
"greendistantstar pina colada" and clicked on the first link anyways.
There's many more where you brag about your drinking prowess.

Good luck with your AA peter (I looked it up - it means Alcoholics
Anonymous).
See if they have a local chapter, Ollie.
Do it for your wife and child.

YOU want to lecture ME about Templeton? Bwwhahahahahaha!!!!
Templeton became a billionaire due to, inter alia, his ability in 'investing in
assets'....you DO know what a mutual fund is, don't you Ollie?
If you're referring to something else about Templeton or his work, feel free to
ask.

Jena.
Jena:

1. A Java framework for building Semantic Web applications. It
provides a programmatic environment for RDF, RDFS and OWL, SPARQL and
includes a rule-based inference engine.

2. The town of Jena (pronunciation: IPA: / d i n /) is the seat of La
Salle Parish, in the U.S. state of Louisiana.[1][2] Its population was
2,971 at the 2000 census. In September 2007, Jena was plunged into the
national headlines in the United States for the racial tension
surrounding the school system and the Jena Six.

3. A city in central Germany on the river Saale. With a population of
102,494, it is the second largest city in the federal state of
Thuringia, after Erfurt.

As you're probably an American, or you assume that everyone is
familiar with popular american culture (I'm not), I take your comment
to refer to last year's events in Louisiana. As far as I can tell I am
guessing you are agreeing with me by providing a supporting example.

Oh.. btw....

Gomi.

No, I think gomi pretty much sums it up. If I am wrong, educate me.
It's not a threat or anything, but since you have something invested

Do you know any Japanese words, Dan?

Where do you live if I may ask?

Anyways, it's interesting that you are assuming I speak Japanese, or
that Gomi is a japanese word. In accord with Herbert's one word
answer, which can be assumed to be a comment on what I said if you
assume that Herbert is speaking from the standpoint of american
culture, Gomi also has a meaning which seems to apply to what Herbert
said (that is, I was calling his post trash) if and only if you
consider it a japanese word. Note the various cultural rules about
trash, classifying it with stickers and paying for it, which have only
now being exported to the west, a sure sign of the asiacentricism to
come (where culture flows from asia to the americas). I guess you
could say culture follows money, and asia is certainly exporting a lot
of money to the americas!

Anyways, back on track, no - you're wrong. But if you do a google
search for the word gomi, I promise you will find something which
means what I wanted it to mean when I typed it.

Just like whatever the fuck Jena means to Herbert. That's a clue. But
no it doesn't mean trash, "actually".

Heh, I just had to add one more thing - this is another sad example of
the lack of intelligent communication on R.M-A. It's become so few and
far between. Let me hand-hold any new readers and explain that when
Dan Winsor says 'Aren't you in "China" and not Japan', he really
means, "what right do you have to USE a Japanese word"?

Which is a very stupid, ignorant question. Dan Winsor wants to use
this question to somehow embarras me, but nothing further needs to be
said on who has been embarrassed here.

Please people, try not to be so ignorant in the future. you may think
you are being clever, but you're just making yourself difficult (read:
not worth the effort required) to understand.

You have more value than that.

At this point nobody who has money seriously doubts that gold can
continue to rise at 1% per day. And why not? Bush DID promise to bail
out the housing crisis by paying for everyone's mortgage, and it does
seem like the fed is keeping that promise with their surgical "one-
time" injections of liquidity over and above the norm every week...

Lol, people are starting to ask questions. Even my brain-dead mother
in law bought an ounce of gold off me last week.
