I'd hate to see the boys found unfit for duty. :lol:
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Poor basturd, but then he did volunteer for service.

They should get him a job as an english teacher.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?

A Taiwanese boy moved to New York State with his mother and later became a naturalized US citizen. His father, who remained in Taiwan, became ill in 2011. Therefore, he decided to come back to Taiwan in order to take care of his ailing father. Because he's still a Taiwanese citizen and within the proper age for conscription, he had to do his military service. As you can see from this video, he can't handle Taiwan's military establishment. :roll:
