Of course, it gets messier when you're trying to suss out the difference between simplified and traditional characters.
This is why I love languages as much as cooking and food: both are a story about a culture and a people. If you learn their language and eat their cooking, you learn things about where they've lived, who they've traded with/ fought/ conquered/ been conquered by, how they've learned to sustain themselves, and how they see the world. When you pick up those things, you gain empathy for those people, and for people in general.
You know, I once told John Hayes the translation of the characters in my name. He didn't believe me; he thought I'd made it up. He had no idea that Chinese names were composed of characters that had literal translations. One of the few times I caught him in a total failure of knowledge.
I read something interesting somewhere about the nature of an ideographic language like Chinese: it suggested that it would be worth studying the way that literates in such languages think. We already know that cursive handwriting engages areas of both hemispheres of the brain, while typing does not; cursive calls upon the brain to make connections related to imagery and emotions, but typing only requires the pure language processing that's centered in the dominant hemisphere. There's a similar dichotomy in brain activity when reading a story versus reading factual information. Imagine what areas of the brain are engaged to read and write a language like Chinese.
However, we were still able to find several more questionable certificates using only the Certificate Transparency logs and a few minutes of work. We shared these results with other root store operators on October 6th, to allow them to independently assess and verify our research.
Symantec performed another audit and, on October 12th, announced that they had found an additional 164 certificates over 76 domains and 2,458 certificates issued for domains that were never registered."
They are criticized both for (1) predatory lending that saddled low income borrowers with rates that were unsustainably high and (2) unrealistic assumptions about systemic risks that led ratings agencies to apply too optimistic ratings to the securities and investors to demand too little of a rate premium for them..........
As with many opinions about the housing bubble and the recession, these ideas achieve a sort of zen level of incoherence. They manage to be wrong while also contradicting each other.
It really is beautiful when you think about it. The standard narrative of the 2008 meltdown is not only wrong; it contains sub-narratives that manage to be both wrong individually, and also logically inconsistent with each other.
