Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

One lesson, just learn one lesson. DEFINITE. DEFINITELY.

Being defiant means you are angry.
Not being able to spell definitely means you are lazy.


How were you able to understand what I wrote? I wrote defiant. How did your brain's frontal lobe come to this conclusion? We are quite insignificant beings in the universe. There are probally advanced other beings not interfearing with us for environmental purposes. We are just particles of blown up stars formed by evolution. There is no riding just another word for our atoms functioning in a certain way. We well die and root and bacteria we feast on us as we feasted on them giving back what we taken in order to preserve life. We well never die and this life is our only life that we well have self awareness. For the end of days for life on earth we well be everything. Be it bark on a tree, muscles of a spider, eye ball of a human. We are everything.


Ooh now wait. You can't just assign thought to the frontal lobes. When they finally kill off Wernicke's and Broca's area and burn Dejerines work on agraphia people can finally start to think properly about language processing. To be honest my eyes work like yours, badly. They saccade. I saw your sentence, with it's lack of punctuated ending and though, "What ho, this is the chap who hates that our language is difficult to learn, he probably can't spell a word like, 'definitely,' I'll give him a clip round the ear." Seems I was wrong, and you wanted to write, 'Defiantly,' and so you did. Looks like the fool is me.

When I wrote that paragraph I watched some Carl Sagan videos. Always makes people feel insignificant

Was it the wonders of the universe stuff? He is really really engaging, it's just so hard to face the fact that pretty much everything he was saying was made up rubbish. Have you heard of Brian Cox? You might like this radio show he does called The Infinite Monkey Cage.

I think you should be able to download the podcasts... Good humoured science. Miles better that Little Atoms and that sort of stuff.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

Haha, ya it was the universe stuff, comparing the earth to a star 100 trillion times in size. Showing photos of earth from light years away.

What makes Taiwan different?

Answer: flooded with thin-skinned people.
Life is a bitch and death is her sister.

I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell.
