Visited a (probably the last) movable type factory in Taipei. Kate wanted to have a postcard printed for her dad so we ended up having the owner teach us how to arrange, set, ink, clean, and print with movable types!

Random mobile shots for now, horrible NEX shots will come (soon-ish).

Scenario: I understand every single word of a sentence, but not the sentence itself.

Is that due to me being a foreigner so I'm not getting the cultural reference or am I just stupid?

This self-questioning happens in my head every single day I spend on the internet. Sometimes I wonder whether it's just me...

Hegel is like that, too. And I read English and German.

This world is amazingly narrow minded sometimes...

btw, newsflash:

If you are a man, and you think 'I'm good as long as I don't partake in this kind of shit', you are helping this shit grow.

As long as you say nothing, you are letting it grow.

Do something about it. Be vocal. Stop this shit from happening.

It's gonna be a long journey, but it'll go on much longer if you don't start the journey with us.
 
quote: You’ve seen this scenario before, and you’ll see it again (until more of us do something). Woman writes about something traditionally regarded as a male-orientated industry or area of interest; if she’s conveying love, she’s doing it “for attention” (so what?) or “fake” (whatever that means); if she criticizes, she’s insulting, whining, moaning, on her period; if she says anything at all, her argument or point is made invisible because her damn biology is getting in the way.
This latest incident involves Janelle Asselin, who was a DC Comics editor of something called “Batman,” a line editor at Newsrama, and so on. Needless to say, she’s got years of experience in the comic book industry, in both a creative and critical capacity. But, recently, she dared to criticize a comic book cover and drew the wrath of brave comic book fanboys
After criticizing the new ‘Teen Titans’ cover, journalist Janelle Asselin was name-called and threatened with rape. The worst part? No one is surprised.

Whenever I do encounter bigotry I say something.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. It's exactly what +Annie Yim is talking about (if I may be so bold as to speak for her in her absence).

Honestly, since you were in highschool, does it feel like we've made progress?

Sometimes. But then I only need go onto Xbox Live and play a game of Call of Duty multiplayer with the mute turned off and I realise that, no, we haven't really come all that far at all. Particularly if there is a game ongoing where one of the participants is female. Or one just has to look at Facebook and see the bullying that happens there. Or even here on Google Plus.

I haven't seen something ineffective for being too soft so its great to have an example I can check out.

http://www.theguardian.com/books/2012/jan/26/alain-de-botton-temple-atheism

His argument about "new atheism" is a nonsense, and simply an attempt to paint atheism in the same colours as a religion. It's accomodationism gone mad. Atheism is not a religion, shares none of the features of a religion, and needs someone comparing the two like a hole in the head. If you want other excellent examples of accomodationists you might want to check out +Filippo Salustri, who makes a habit of posting about their idiocy.

Bad shot, I know. It was getting dark and this mobile camera of mine doesn't exactly handle low light conditions well. But I wanted to take a shot and try and find out what it is...

    Translator/ Interpreter, present
Story
Tagline
Claws optional, try at your own peril. Nags, rants, growls and meows.
Introduction
Warning: Bilingual. I speak irony and sarcasm fluently.

1/3 Taiwanese Chinese, 1/3 German, 1/3 English
Figuratively. Not literally.

Pessimistic/Optimistic
Loves to Laugh/Loves to Cry
Childish/Mature

Translator, interpreter, blogger, writer of some sort, critic of all things in my own right, and definitely a nag (but not a photographer, just some chick with a camera, and a snappy phone)

Points of note:
- I will have typos, and later correct them (most of the time)
- I will post what I like, and re-share what strikes my chords.
- I will rant, aimlessly. And I will derail my threads.
- I will be nice to you, as long as you are nice to me and my friends.
- I will block you if you can't treat my threads with the respect they deserve.
- And I hope you will enjoy that, because anything less would not be me.

Please rememberI'm inviting you to my living room for a chat, not running a public toilet for you to take a piss.
