When they start to realize how much we are and can be an economic asset, then they will come around.

Yea, and from Chewycorns recent post, it seems as if 'those' xenophobes are in places that do have an impact on us, i.e. the government. When they start to realize how much we are and can be an economic asset, then they will come around. :s

I'm sure our great great grandchildren will enjoy the effects of such.

Karma.

Chris was an infamous fixture of the Tainan scene for about 6 or 7 years, however long he'd been in Taiwan. The unpaid bar tabs.....true. One of the girls at Subway told me that he tried to get away without paying them, too, by pulling a quick "where's my change?" scam. I don't know why he was broke like that lots of the time, but maybe it was because he couldn't always hold down a steady teaching job. He was a co-teacher at a highschool I was at for a while, and was very often late or absent from morning classes. When he did show up, sometimes the kids would ask him, "Teacher, it's a sunny day. Can't we play outside?" and he'd let them go, while sitting in class smoking. A big chain-smoker and drinker. The school didn't fire him because he was too popular with the students; the boys liked him because he let them play, and the girls loved him because he was "so handsome". It's hard to tell from the picture, but he bears a striking resemblance to Brad Pitt - a resemblance that enabled him to bonk, almost literally, a different girl every night. He admitted that was the main reason he stayed in Taiwan, because back home he was just a normal guy. A couple of years ago he got glassed in a bar fight when he drunkenly turned to a Taiwanese guy (complete stranger) and slurred "Fuck you" to him. Fucked up his face for a few months. There are lots of "Chris stories" out there.

Well, I guess he's gone for good now. I don't see how they're going to let him back in the country after this.

Yup, that's him. Front page of Liberty TImes national newspaper today. yes, definitely, another funny 4inner story for the locals to remember. did you know him or know of him? how did you know he had unpaid bar tabs in Tainan pubs? was he notorious there?

Funny though, while all the local national Chinese language papers had a story about him today, even Apple Daily, the three English newspapers completely ignored this story.


I know him. He plays football (soccer) with the local Tainan foreigner football club, Tainan Pheonix. Surprised that all this infamy has travelled as a far afield as Taipei...

All my drinking is going on Chris's tab this weekend.


I don't think he's allowed to use his tab at the Armory anymore.

Cheers for the updates. Damn but there has always been some particularly strange cats down Tainan way. Must be something about going quite so far up river. Among the Tainan people I've met, if the cats themselves weren't strange they always seemed to have weird shit happen to them.

Bummer the lad blew it. Guess youth is wasted on the young. So now he's back to planting trees and regalling his Canucky mates with tales of easy lays. Expect another influx of the young dumb and full of cum set any week soon.

Ah well as to that, I lived in Tainan a couple of years back. I met my S.O. when she was working in the now-defunct Western on Jiankang Rd. She knew this idiot from her job and has been calling all her old colleagues today to share a laugh at his expense.

She is also certain, by the way, that in one pub his tab was around 20,000NT :eek:. What puzzles me is not that someone could drink 20,000NT worth of beer (actually I find that sadly all too understandable), but that the boss of this establishment would allow him to run it up that high.

Many places let you drink on tab, as they know you and assume you'll pony up sooner or later...

Wise words there from HGC.
