The following appeared in the comments of a post I wrote a long time ago.

China’s Top Ten Hottest Girls

I thought the comments were interesting and worthy to bring to a post in hopes of creating a discussion.

The commenter is in Belgium. But, I don’t know his/her ethnicity.

S/he points out when Chinese are NOT cool among other things

1. Calling other Asian Countries (i.e. Japan and Korea) ‘plastic surgery
freaks’ just prove they admit those other Asian girls are prettier.

2. China is economically advancing, and so is their plastic surgery
facilities; China will soon become the biggest plastic surgery nation
ironically.

3. Chinese people are beautiful, but the moment they diss other ethnicities
and races, they are filth & racist; their reputation is at an edge.

4. Chinese people are cool, but once they are patriotic, they have the
tendency to insult other ethnicities and races which I despise; patriotism
is not to degrade others, that is stupidity.

5. There are MUCH hotter Chinese Girls than that – FACT.

Did you catch it? Chinese are indeed extremely patriotic.

To a fault?

Al-Qaeda has issued death threats against Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The duos are currently in India filming “A Mighty Heart,” a movie about Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journalist who was killed by Al-Qaeda knuckleheads in Pakistan in 2002.

British security experts flew into Pune, India to protect the couple after learning earlier this week that due to the political nature of the film, the couple might be a target.

Apparently, the reason for shooting the movie in India in the first place was because Pakistan was too dangerous for Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

India is also offering extensive security for the couple while they are in Pune.

Now…if Al-Qaeda were to actually get through to these two (God forbid) …Al-Qaeda would have Hollywood to reckon with. Maybe Hollywood would have better luck finding the terrorists or at least convincing the world it had.

The world’s sometime tallest man, if you exclude Leonid Stadnik in the Ukraine, and his wife are expecting…a baby.

I know what you are thinking and I am trying NOT to think of it, too.

Bao Xishun is twice the age of his wife, and nearly two times taller. The two will have a baby next month around China’s national holiday.

His wife’s name is Xia Shujuan and the baby’s sex has not been revealed.

 

S/he is likely to be pretty tall, eh?

“Honey, where’s the baby?”

“It’s right here, dear.”

“Oh, I thought that was a Lego toy.”

Issues with Bilingual Kids
Kids reading a story book

Elementary school children in Shanghai from 40 elementary schools worked together to create 81,863 pinwheels and garner 81,863 yuan ($11+K) in donations for the Shanghai Haha Education Fund.

The thinking of the organizers – “It’s more meaningful to encourage children to show their love to others by doing what they can, rather than simply asking them to donate money.”

Agreed!

We organized events each year in Japan that we called ‘Walk-for-the-World.’ We asked for donations on a per-kilo basis (a totally foreign concept to the Japanese at that time). It took me three years to get my staff to understand what I was trying to accomplish.

At any rate, we felt it was better for us to make an effort to raise money, rather than just ask for donations.

Nearly $100K later, and the students in Japan were able to make a difference in the lives in many throughout Asia.

The Shanghai Committee of the Chinese Youth League are doing well to teach the kids the same mindset, I think.

Mother Theresa once said, “We don’t need to help everyone. We just need to help those we can.” If everyone did their part, it would be enough.

What’s your favorite charity and how do you support it?
