To be honest, talk of ghosts when someone drowns pisses me off. It's a sad event and it shouldn't be trivialized or written off by "Oh looks like the ghosts got him."

What it looks like is more should be done to make sure people don't drown.

That doesn't piss me off, I rather find it retarded. Last weekend I had to make an effort and be politically correct...

I went to Wushi Port beach yesterday and lifeguards were 250% more annoying and paranoid than usual. They wouldn't allow me to swim into water deeper than knee height. This psychotic rage inducing behavior was counterbalanced by the fun I had seeing them on the beach, whistling endlessly (isn't that bad during ghost month, anyways) while I did not give a flying f**k and kept swimming (in waist-high water, before someone claims I was endangering myself). :D

If only Hollywood knew that Taiwanese guys with shorts and whistles were effective protection against the undead.

Plenty of evidence of ghosts now huh.

I'm so scared that I need to take a poop but I'm afraid of being swallowed by the W.C. or the ghosts inside... :(

I love how every time we quote the number of "Gaoxiong"s keeps increasing.

It makes me think of a teacher making you to write many times something so that you finally learn the correct spelling of a word for good :D

It's the obligatory eerie echo for the ghost month.
