It's crazy how life plods along and we are always learning. Especially about women. Turns out it's just luck. I can be the most loyal, giving caring guy and even though she apologises over and over, turns out she is just damaged goods. Carrying over all the heartache from a past relationship that she would never talk about. In the end, it didn't matter what I did or said, I could never make her forget about her past and make her happy. Just goes to show you can do everything right and literally be that perfect guy women cry for, and it's still not enough.

I'm staying single for the rest of my life and pick up the odd fuck buddy from now on. I can't go through that rubbish again.


Sorry to hear that, Pete. You never know what the future holds so I'd say never say never. Can't go wrong with fuck buddies either. Your choice ;-)

..i strongly believe if china passed a type of animal rights laws, it would have a trickle down effect and within a generation the chinese people would care more about each other.

(something i keep thinking about when reading about animal abuse in china)

If China passed an animal rights law nothing would change because it would not be enforced and no business would care. Just like with labor laws and environmental laws.

Some of the stuff I've heard China do to animals are so disgusting, vile and evil. Honestly put me off visiting the place.

I've seen many videos of natives in their country not giving a damn about their own people. They often run over children with their careless driving habits. In fact what they do after hitting someone is go in reverse running them over again to make sure their dead. This way they don't have to deal any long-term financial responsibilities. With this type uncaring attitude they for sure won't give a damn about animals. The stereotype of bad driving and eating dogs isn't exaggerated.

Why drivers in China intentionally kill the pedestrians they hit

China is a weird place, I think I ate dog in a place, but not really sure, it certainly wasn't cow or chicken.
They just shove people out of the way all of the time, spit on streets (because pollution I guess, I also started to cough a lot and I'm a chain smoker).

Thank Mao and his Cultural Revolution for the current state China sits in. Tbh the real Chinese culture (that has been preserved from its former empire) is only available outside the Mainland, specifically in Hong Kong and Taiwan. That is specially evident when China even scratches out its own traditional and complex writing system (which carries history and culture itself) in favor of a simplified version for the masses.

Yeah, Taiwan I see as a separate place, same goes for Tibet which also looks really nice (I like Buddhism and think the way of life seems nice). I was being really stereotypical when I made my comments, I think they were better reserved for the Mainland China that enforces their rule thanks to Mao and those who came after him. The likes of Tibet, Taiwan, certain parts of Hong Kong etc seem nice. Still wouldn't want to pay into a government that treats its inhabitants (both Human and Animal) so shitty. It is no wonder Tibet, Hong Kong and Taiwan want independence.

Yu Suzuki Illuminati CONFIRMED.

BTW https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Counterin ... mation_Act

The ministry of truth is in full effect, and I guess that with the dislike Trump has for the press, shit is gonna get "weird".

So in a way, both guys were right (always bet on a dystopia).

It does actually suck right? Like you get off work legit like an angel but in the end you are a piece of garbage who would in the end, rather go to work. Stay strong.
