What I've Been Saying All These Years is Now Finally Law

Scottish Judge Rules Chinese People ALL LOOK SAME!!


LONDON (AFP) - A Scottish judge cleared a student from China of a motoring offence after claiming that "all Chinese people can look the same", a newspaper has reported.

Sheriff Margaret Gimblett dismissed the evidence of two police officers who had identified Hui Yu, 23, who had been charged with driving without insurance.

She was quoted by The Times Monday as telling Greenock Sheriff Court, near Glasgow: "Without wanting to be derogatory in any way, sometimes it is said that all black people look the same at first glance and the same can be said that all Chinese people can look the same to a native Scot.

"It's only when you have time to look that you begin to see the differences."

"It is the same for Chinese people -- we find it quite hard at first to tell the difference between groups of Scots," the Times quoted him as saying.

Corpsed Pulled out of Lake at NTU

Yup. Picture courtesy of the Apple Daily

Wasn't a student, some 40 year old woman's corpse. Andin case you're wondering, wasn't Cory Lidle

This is the lake pre-corpse jumping/dumping.

See the booth in the middle? Yeah, people used to be able to walk to it and chill, but then they TORE DOWN THE BRIDGE that leads to the booth, and then they fenced off the lake with bamboo fence, because they didn't want people jumping.

And rumours have it that the chem labs dump all their waste in there.

Stupid Dead Kid, Part II

Anyways, I took the train back from from Taichung to Taipei... a few notes

1) My train stopped at the station the kid died at. There was a metal pole every FIVE FRAKKING METERS.

2) By my calculation, it took 12 FRAKKING MINUTES to get to Taichung to Fengyuan. 12 FRAKKING MINUTES. So had the kid not jumped and took another train back, the trip back would have been 12 FRAKKING MINUTES. Maybe a little longer, 25 AT THE MOST

3) I don't even know how to get the frakking door open when the train is moving. The electronic override is locked, and you can't pry the door open with your own hands.

Seriously, Charles Darwin called, and the kid picked up.
