    Part I can be found here


    Part II can be found here



    This guide will be split up into multi-parts to make it easy on the web server. Most of the topics come from another forum I'm actively browsing. This guide only has the purpose to allow me to fully appreciate the re-posted images in their native sizes, which the other web site tends to reformat to a small fixed size...

    Of the 5 permanent members of the UNSC, there are only 3 Superpowers: USA, China, Russia.


    When any two superpowers team up, the other one is sure to lose. The problem with America placing THAAD in South Korea are two-fold: 1. The X-Band radars can peer deep into Chinese/Russian airspace to spy on them. 2. THAAD missiles (that target North Korea) can be swapped for offensive weapons that target China/Russia. If America et co. didn't remember the 100,000's+ of their countries's soldiers lost fighting Chinese volunteer army in the first Korean War, China+Russia will kindly remind them again in another one...

    What I like about Chinese tech (SKMEI) over the Japanese one (CASIO): Increased sophistication. To achieve the same effect of
    negative illumination, the Japanese had to permanently make their display a negative one [when not illuminated]

    (The inferior Japanese watches are also usually over-priced...)

    China saving the best for last: Big bad Chinese drag-suction dredger coming to develop the Chinese property known as the Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea (rumored to be 5 times larger than all pre-existing artificial islands combined):

    The BEST TV show I've seen in the last 5 years. Period:

    You're a CIA/MI6 agent. You're asked to infiltrate Chinese society. What's the one thing you watch
    to get a lowdown of China for the last 100 years? The Mystic Nine is easily your answer!

    It has everything ranging from the military, to underworld society, to pop-culture (ie. Chinese opera).

    Why it's [also] entertaining: The Mystic Nine is essentially what you get when you make a
    Chinese live-action TV adaptation of Sailor Moon (nine gatekeepers + one lieutenant)

    ... but it's more bad-arse b/c it features these characters as well (Chen [Anakin Skywalker] Pi, and his very young Master, Er [Obi-Wan] Yue Hong)
