    [–] Air pollution in Taiwan Couselm 4 points ago in taiwan

    Yes, scooters are a big part, but most people in Taiwan seem to have no idea that the country has the most polluting coal power plant IN THE WORLD. This single power plant alone releases more greanhouse gases than the ENTIRE COINTRY of Switzerland combined.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taichung_Power_Plant

    Taiwanese always seem to blame others (mainlanders in particular) about the pollution problem, but the fact is, energy production on the west coast is very polluting. (This is coming from someone who has lived here for 4 years now).

    This, combined with the heavy industry and refineries in cities like Kaohsiung, and scooters/gas cars, the air quality is not great.

    I read the first two frames as "buzz kill, buzz kill"

    In Valladolid, Mexico in the Yucatan peninsula (where the Mayans used to live!) 😁

    [–] This clock with Mayan numbers. Couselm 6 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    In Valladolid, Mexico! My first time in the Yucatan peninsula and I'm loving it!

    [–] This clock with Mayan numbers. Couselm 131 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Yes that went over my head....

    [–] This clock with Mayan numbers. Couselm 48 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Me too! I had to check first to see if it was actually Mayan. But being in Yucatan I had a strong suspicion πŸ˜€

    [–] This clock with Mayan numbers. Couselm 32 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    That would be pretty cool too. Any pics?

    [–] This clock with Mayan numbers. Couselm 10 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Thanks! I will check this out! I am curious about how to read the bigger numbers too. I had to confirm first that it was actually Mayan numbers before posting 😁

    [–] Graduate School in Taiwan Couselm 1 points ago in taiwan

    I did my MBA at NCKU in Tainan. PM me if you have any questions. In short, it's an aweosme experience and you can most certainly get a full scholarship plus a stipend. Everyone at my uni did. Cost of living varies city to city. The north expect about 1000usd a month, and the south you can get by modestly on about half that.

    [–] Bored in Taipei Couselm 1 points ago in taiwan

    Explore the rest of the island! Taiwan has alot of great spots outside of Taipei. Amazing nature and aweosme sights. The east coast, Hualian, Taidong, as well Taichung, Tainan, as well as Kaohsiung. Taking a train around the island is super convenient and not too expensive. Lots of hidden spots along the way.

    [–] Taichung Railway Station Couselm 2 points ago in taiwan

    I love the new station. Taichung still one of my favorite cities in Taiwan.

    [–] US Navy warships sail through the Taiwan Strait in message to China Couselm 6 points ago in taiwan

    This. I can't beleive how many people fail to realize this single important detail.

    [–] Google Photos, really? That's your suggestion on what to search? Couselm 8 points ago in taiwan

    Except even many of the locals still refer to Taiwan as ε°η£ηœγ€‚It's even on the Taiwanese license plates up until recently. Most foreigners forget that besides the younger generation lots of Taiwanese, especially old people see Taiwan as the legit China (ie One China Policy.) they just disagree with the mainlanders as to who actually controls it.

    [–] Taiwan to ban [production & sale of new] gasoline-powered scooters in 2035 Couselm 4 points ago in taiwan

    Great! Except places like tier-one cities in Mainland China banned them years ago.

    I love that Taiwan is introducing more electric options (I have a Gogoro myself) but they aren't taking pollution seriously enough.

    The technology exists already, it's just a matter of making policies that not all locals are gonna be gung hoe for! I think they can do alot better than this.

    [–] Gogoro extends reach to eastern Taiwan Couselm 2 points ago in taiwan

    I did the subscription option without maintenance. It was only 1 NTD/KM which is super reasonable.

    [–] Gogoro extends reach to eastern Taiwan Couselm 9 points ago in taiwan

    I had a gogoro for almost 2 years. I can say it's about time! Been waiting for the east coast expansion for a while. Can't wait to do a full island tour now!

    [–] Living in Kaohsiung for 1 year, advice? Couselm 12 points ago in taiwan

    I'm am American who has been living/studying in Souther Taiwan / Kaohsiung for over 2 years now. PM me if you have any questions or need someone to show you around the city!

    [–] Cases for Xiaomi mi mix 2 special edition Couselm 2 points ago in Xiaomi

    I bought case in an electronics market in Shenzhen. Most of those vendors also sell on Aliexpress. Mine is also the ceramic special edition. Any old Mix 2 case will work fine.

    [–] Mi Mix 2 to MI Max 3? Couselm 2 points ago in Xiaomi

    Thanks! This is really the input I was looking for. If there is not a noticanke difference in speed for dya to dya stuff then great.

    I will be in China tomorrow so I will go test it out in the Xiaomi store and see how I like the Max 3!
