Yeah, from what I understand from people who've taught in both is that they're pretty damn similar. China probably has a wider education gap because you've got smaller family sizes and only a relatively small percent who can afford to send their kid to after-school academies. In Korea the middle class is pretty big so I've heard figures up to 90% of kids who go to academies. But I'm sure it's pretty damn similar in terms of "victory of non-stop study" and education based entirely around rote memorization and multiple choice tests.

Sounds like the Dalai Lama is starting to lose his marbles. Check out this incoherent ramble about preferring that his successor, if female, should be pretty:
“If female Dalai Lama comes, then she should be more attractive," he said. "If female Dalai Lama, oh, oh... that people, I think prefer, not see her, that face." :???:
But there is still some other stuff in the interview that makes some sense, see for yourselves:

He’s always been a little bit kooky and unusual, but that thing about a beautiful Dalai Lama seems a bit out character. However, it might be a lame joke, since he’s also made some in the past. I remember watching a documentary where someone told him the “Buddhist monk asks for a pizza”joke, and he smiled when he heard the punchline “make me one with everything”.

His English isn't really good, so I kinda imagine by "attractive" he meant "more attractive than he is". That's how I interpreted it. Still not big on his negative views on cultural pluralism though.

Found this "metal review" site recently. It's hilarious, they claim that Bathory ripped off Burzum and founded nu-metal, Dissection is blackened Avenged Sevenfold, Summoning is blackened metalcore, etc. Obviously a troll site, but it's still hilarious.

Also, this was already posted, but powermetalsucks.com. An extreme case of a hard rock fan, probably not a troll.

Oooh, that looks like it's by the same guy who did The Satan Records/thesatan.com! (Phantom is one of his fake bands, he made a bunch of "black metal" that's just super-distorted midi).

Never quite figured out whether these are trolling/taking the piss or done seriously by someone completely missing the point. (If it's the former, the amount of time he's wasted on it kind of puts him into "joke's back on you" category...)

Yeah, he puts those crap videos all over his site.

The reviews are supposedly from multiple users, but you can easily see it's one person writing them.

I believe he's also behind this blog, which claims that all black metal is NSBM. Even Alcest and Summoning!

Even if he's a troll, he gave me a good laugh.

He even included his own fake band Sewer there. :lol: I remember he also had a few self-published "black metal history" books on amazon back when black metal documentaries were the main topic of discussion. If there were ads on his pages it'd actually make sense that he's just trying to hype stuff up for the revenue, but the fact that he doesn't even seem to be making money off this (other than the six people who bought his vanity books) just reinforces the idea that he's pointlessly obsessed with what amounts to a minor joke. You ain't Kauffman, brosef.

Recently I've enjoying bands like Moonsorrow and Falkenbach, so I decided to check out the roots of this greatness and finally listen to viking era Bathory. The riffs are nice, but the vocals...Are metalheads deaf or something? I mean, I am no music expert, but he's not hitting the notes.

Every metalhead worth their salt considers Quorthon to be the best worst singer of all time.

Well, I can officially say that's more unexpected than the Blind Guardian rap remix.

Outerspace are so underrated! And Reef even more so. His debut was killer. Also his group with Chief Kamachi called Juju Mob.

All rap is bad, and I thought rap in German was the worst, but I think Finland has them beat.

My mom bought a house in Idaho. My son and I helped her load up a bunch of her stuff yesterday. Under a heat advisory. With obscene humidity.

At the end of the day, she gave us two guns. One was an inheritance my boy was going to get one day anyway: A German Luger pistol that my grandfather brought back from WWII. The other she gave me is a Bersa Thunder 380 pistol. I'm armed to the... fists. I need to find a way to house and care for that Luger.

Moving during the summer sucks. 3 years ago my wife and I moved into our last apartment, on the third floor of an old building in Chicago in mid-80s heat. There was window AC, which meant it was pretty much useless outside the room the unit was in.

Wow, super cool! That's really special. Where in Idaho? I live up north in the Coeur d'Alene area which is quite nice.

My wife and I are in the process of buying our first home which is pretty dang exciting. It's a bit of a fixer-upper, but in a nice neighborhood with a big park that'll be great for our daughter to play at. We're pretty thrilled but a bit overwhelmed with it all.

Pretty sure we drove through Coeur d'Alene on our trip. She's moving into Kamiah, and I'm pretty sure her house was previously owned by paranoid anti-government kooks. They had it wired for nearly a dozen cameras and it overlooks the road leading up to the house--y'know, to see those government vehicles comin' to getcha. The house needs quite a bit of work, but looks nice for the most part.

Good luck on your home purchase. I bought a place last summer, and it could be grueling at times.

^Right on. Yeah that kind of anti-government culture is pretty strong up here. I think it stems from a very individualistic and independent spirit here: just about everyone I know owns their own businesses instead of working "for the man," etc. I appreciate that and would definitely take that over the other extreme (hence moving here from California haha!).

Thanks! This place is going to require a LOT of work for sure, though thankfully the "bones" of the house are all good. We'll need to finish the kitchen remodel that the sellers are midway through, paint the entire inside, redo all the floors, etc. I'm excited to get to make it really our own though and it'll be very rewarding work too.

No matter how long I live inside the Beltway I will never get used to much less enjoy our 100F°/40C° summers. Any dress codes that require long pants should be banned here between April and October unless you're military or work with diplomats.

This may be a long shot, but does anyone know what the lyrics to "Misfit" by Fates Warning are based on? I swear they used to have this information on their website, but I guess they got rid of when they redesigned in (or maybe I'm just crazy).
