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.

Here's another sage advice: in this country, it's NOT (and I repeat...NOT!!!) "innocent until proven guilty" but rather "you already looked guilty, son. So what u gonna do to prove your innocence?"
Well it could be worse. In some countries I could mention its "you look guilty so I'm going to exercise my right to defend other people's property and shoot your ass dead".
I guess you're referring to the U. S., and the killing of Trayvon Martin. That was awful.
I don't really get, though, how it's much of an improvement that only duly appointed agents of the law are permitted to shoot dead a guilty-looking person, as when London police killed that Brazilian electrician: http://www.time.com/time/world/article/ ... 08,00.html

It also happens sometimes that an uncertain hope is sold; as the fisher sells a haul of his net before he throws it. . . .

Let the world slide, let the world go;
A fig for care, and a fig for woe!
If I can't pay, why, I can owe,
And death makes equal the high and low.
