Quite well put, @late.
I was a professional student for about 11 years, give or take.
I don't have the ego maniac tick of insisting that I'm right all the time.
I know you are an academic.
I think that in some ways, academics is an experience of being told you are wrong all the time.
Not that it's healthy or good, but the whole world is fucked, so why should academics be any different, eh?
I have hung around on this forum for this long though, because we can call each other out, and shake hands after (usually, at least).
Yeah, I was wrong in what I said, but that is partly the experimental process. Throw shit at the wall and see if it sticks.
Hope you're having a good time tonight, dude.
And, I'll probably keep calling you out, but it's friendly.
It can verge personal when it becomes things like China, as I have lovers and friends there, and, frankly put, America sucks more than China, in my personal experience.
It does. America is a shithole country.
And China aint that bad. But I guess it sucks more the more you get to know it.
But, well, not that I'm proud of it, but I have been in trouble in China. I have been in trouble in Japan.
I've been in trouble in America plenty.
And, America is where the gulag is.
And the American gulag is quite terrible. And it takes a lot of diligents to get out of, so wish me luck, as the deck is stacked against me.
A true mark of a true shithole country.
Once I beat my case, I hope I don't become weak again to my sentimental feelings, and return to this shithole country, America.
America is a total shitty country, irredeemable, undefensible, and a horrible place to live.
I want to get some red whit and blue toilet paper, so that every morning, I can wipe my ass with the American flag.
