All along the coast. Go a few miles inland and you will see the poverty that's beyond your wildest imagionations.
    Dont even get me started on china, they are smart and insanely stupid all at the same time. Here is a typical exchange between me and a waiter at a Shanghai restaurant.

    Waiter: "What would you like to drink?"
    Me: "Just ice water"
    Waiter: "Sorry we dont have that"
    Me: "Are you sure?"
    Waiter: "Yes no ice water on menu"
    Me: "Can you just make me ice water?"
    Waiter: "No not possible"
    Me: "Really"
    Waiter: "Yes, we have no ice water"
    Me: "Do you have Ice?"
    Waiter: "Yes"
    Me: "Do you have water?"
    Waiter: "Yes"
    Me: "Can you put them together and give it to me?"
    Waiter: "Let me check..."

    Couple Minutes later I will get my Ice water.

    This is a country full of people that lack even the most basic problem solving skills (not that there aren't some exceptions), but honestly if you deviate from a set procedure or instructions their heads will explode right in front of you eyes. Which means it is a absolute BLAST to mess with them.
    Good lord are there no good games to play?

    I'm seriously thinking about voting for Obama. I would love to see Obama fix this country. If I'm lucky, there will be universal health care and I can quit my job. I'll let hard working people like you guys support me.
    Trust me. I know what I am doing.

    Are you serious? That cannot be a real conversation. No one is that dumb.

    Did he check with his local commisar for authorization to add water to ice?

    Absolutely true, happened to me again yesterday at lunch. I would characterize that as a "typical" conversation regarding ANY type of problem solving.

    Haha you don't even want to hear about the time I tried to use a gift card... Hilarity ensued for about 45 minutes.

    The real problem is that is how they are raised, don't question anything and do exactly what you are told. Which means they don't mentally know how to problem solve most of the time.

    All the Asian people I've worked with had 0 problem solving skills. Even the tech from a company couldn't trouble shoot a problem for their own product that took me 5 minutes to figure out. It took him two weeks and he still got it wrong...even though his own documentation told him the answer.

    I think he is talking about in Japan, not the Americanized ones. Cause they are smart as hell, I've worked with a couple my self in the tech industry.

    They are talking about the same thing. Killdozer/Bodyshot are good friends, and we've discussed (mostly my interested listening) the same thing in person.

    While I'll agree that in china they think differently than we do and hence can appear "dumb" to us - I don't agree that americanized asians are unable to problem solve. That's just fucking stupid logic. Seriously.


    fake edit: hijacked - give us the obama heckle thread back pls

    Could any of it had to do with a language barrier?

    Then what was the purpose of the statement? If you are disagreeing with it say why.

    Otherwise, you obviously have nothing to add to the conversation so sit down shut up and let the adults talk...

    Nope, because I have been with people who speak fluent chines and have had the same thing happens.
