  • I learned that during the Berlin Airlift, U.S planes were landing and leaving every 3 minutes to and from Berlin, 24 hours a day! :0

    I also learned that being a teacher is harder than I thought, I'm a teachers aide for my former health teacher, I had to grade of 80 papers and put them on a grade sheet, its time consuming and took more than an hour for only two classes and it was only one assignment! This is why I have a lot of respect for teachers, they work so much for so little :)

    I also learned not to wear a dress when stapling posters to a wall while standing on top of a chair, one of my guy friends commented saying that he saw my underwear, lmao. You live and you learn c:

  • I learned that giving a clock as a birthday present to an elderly Chinese person is considered offensive. (who the f*** would give you a clock for your birthday anyway?)

    Here's why:

    Because the characters:

    1. ??

    Song Zhong


    2. ??

    Song Zhong

    which have the same pronunciation can be confused. one means to give a watch /clock and number 2 is to accompany an elderly friend or family member as they pass away.

    So if you give them a clock, it's a metaphor to tell them you hope to accompany them as they pass away, eg. hurry up and die already. So it's considered offensive.

    Remember that if you ever had the weird idea of giving a clock to an elderly Chinese person for their birthday lolol.�
