    [–] Is there any difference between 愿意 and 乐意? flamespear 1 points ago in ChineseLanguage

    Formal wedding vowels are usually similar. Traditionally it is a legal contract and the whole sickness and in health thing shows you're doing it not just for your own happiness but for something greater than each individual.

    Part of it is pretty extreme materialism and competition. Part of it is old fashioned media and work culture thst is both those things and sexist. If you use almost any Asian airline almost all of them still only use young beautiful women.

    Even though a lot f these gfs and images come out of mainland china , youu can see a pretty big difference between their and places outside. Even jusy traveling between Shenzhen and Hong Kong you will notice Hong Kingers are much more fashion trendy in general and have their own style compared to Shenzhen which has many more poor migrants.

    It's about fucking time. It shouldn't have taken so much for them to do this because the Chinese government has been doing this for years.

    I was just in NYC and the most remarkable thing here seems like how many more there are today especially tourists.

    [–] The Average Faces of Rap, Rock, and Country Musicians [OC] flamespear 1 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    https://youtu.be/tRVqVwGWocM reminds me of this. Same thing.

    I don't think it's quite right though. It's not as though serious music about issues and mindless entertainment can't exist side by side. I think Kpop has perfected the mindless entertainment side. It's fun and flashy, and it doesn't diminish people talking about violence and discrimination in their music.

    Maybe Koreans take themselves too seriously though if they don't realize what their music actually is.

    First, stop letting them assert themselves. Things like Crimea can't be allowed. Territory expansion can't be allowed. Use international blockades instead of single country ones.

    Isolate them economically. When the new rich and new growing middle classes start to feel economic pain they will take it out on their governments and they will bring all their other greivences with them.

    Transparent information/anti propaganda campaigns to inform citizens about what their governments are doing will help support this.

    No I was never talking about a regime change through invading the mainland. Direct open war through invasion probably would end up with nuclear strikes.

    Attacking Russia and taking Crimea aren't really the same, especially when Russia wouldn't even acknowledge they were there (when they obviously were.)

    These countries have learned to play the UN for everything its worth. Russia wouldn't have taken Crimea if they were willing to start a nuclear conflict. China isn't going to do it over the South China Sea, Taiwan, or Hong Kong. Maybe they would over the actual mainland if they thought they were going down. It's more likely internal revolution would happen before that though because besides the loud minority that openly support the ccp most people dislike or at least distrust the government.

    During the cold war war never stopped. Only total war did. They're not going to use nukes because the instant they do other countries will use there's and it's over. Do you think Russia would have started a nuclear war if NATO had actually defended Crimea? No. Russia determined the west didn't have the resolve to actually do anything and they acted on that.

    If the world stands by because of fear there will never be justice again and the strong will only take from the weak.

    World wars are a thing of the past as long nuclear threat stops total war. What's a bad idea is letting Authoritarian regimes walk all over the world in a post Cold War. We don't need another USSR.

    No one wants to think about their earbuds being charged. It's a shit experience. Also we should probably be reducing the amount of lithium we're using to less frivolous devices because it's taking an environmental toll.

    If other Western countries besides the US were actually willing to challenge shitty regimes like China with actual force they would be a lot less effective.
