if my wife was 1000 times hotter than yours, then you would probably be
jealous of me. does that make any sense?
The wealthy West has nothing to be jealous about in China.

Period.

We are wealthier, more diverse, more powerful, and more democratic. The one thing we lack is as long and continuous civilization, of which China with its 5.000 years there is no match.

China will be wealthy and powerful as it was once was one day. Take a chill pill and quit pretending to be something that at the moment that you are not.

Never heard anyone consider Chinese as white. Never heard a white see a Chinese as white.

I've heard Indians call themselves white. Which is absolutely bizarre! Good thing the Chinese don't know their place in anyone's caste system. Who else is going to piss-off the people who think they deserve more in this world simply because of belief in their own superiority?

i see you tiptoed around my explaination again by saying something totally
irrelevant. no one's ever said the west was not wealthier than china -- that's
never a question. the question is why people from the west always bash china
every time that china makes some sort of achievement. the chinese believe it's
jealousy because china, even though being poorer than the west, now has
something the west doesn't. you don't understand this logic?

ones bashing china in every opportunity and every occasion.

Indian people calling themselve white? Thats cool right!

Anyway chinese are different from europeans, no? I mean their look, language, culture..there is no similarity. So is true for all asians. Anyway as you seem to have funny definition of "white", you can call me white

And it's bad that you don't know your place in caste system. Who knows what shit you might get in next life, no?

Anyway, I had hard time reading your angry post, you non-white chinese guy. So consider this white guys request and try to write less and more clear.

You're the one that seems to be very angry since you've completely misinterpreted my state. Also everytime you see Indians posting in threads that have to with China, it's always about anger and envy. Learn to read if you don't understand. I never said I see Indians as white. I said I've heard Indians call themselves white. BIG DIFFERENCE! That's why I laugh at delusion like that. Just like the delusion of rewriting and misinterpreting what I stated to make one's self feel superior.

Stick to Mandarin. Your english comprehension skill sucks. And don't mind my "livid" face, I was born that way. And it seems you hear too much. Try picking "only mandarin" words because I see, you are no good at english.

Countries much smarter, richer and better managed than China don't think putting money into India is like throwing it away. Ah well, they must all be jealous too.

Is that perfect English skills? Your english is as good as listening to customer service calls from India... big waste of time and nothing ever gets done.

I know... people with major inferiority complexes are always livid watching the world pass them by. LOL!!!!

Then I guess it says something when China gets 10 times more FDI than India. And what does it say with all the "advantages" India supposedly has over China, it still lags far behind China. LOL!!!!

Yep, I'm just sit'n here wish'n Parkdale had it's own maglev...preferably directly from my house to Bachus Roti.

You guys are hilarious.

KGB
so what do you expect them to do? build a stone-cobbled road for horses and carts? send wooden sailboats to various countries around the world, colonize them, enslave their populations, force them to farm cash crops, import the capital and use the capital to develop their infrastructure? should they start using planes made with paper and balsa wood and wait 100 years before they start using an A380? what is your deal?

you are criticizing this country for developing in the same way that Western countries developed - the only difference is they are usign modern technology. When the west expanded their rail networks, they used steam engines. This is not the 19th century anymore, it makes sense for them to use the latest technology available. Perhaps even by mastering maglev technology they will have a product that can be exported internationally.

your ethnocentrism is ridiculous

"what is your deal? "


Well, here's my deal.

First of all, even you must be able to detect a slight amount of humour somewhere in there...I decided to make it slightly more obvious in my last post.

Second, rather than the jealousy too many people seem to rationalize as an excuse...it's simply I find the priorities out of wack....I mean, if people are starving in your country, or having various other serious fundemental difficulties, it should be the responsibility of the government, especially a communist one, to take care of those things first, before trying to impress the world with spending vast sums on things like maglevs or a space program. It's all just posturing, at the expense of those most vulnerable, whom you are supposed to be taking care of.

In a more developed country with a democratic-free enterprise system, the government looks after certain basic responsibilities of society, and free enterprise looks after things like keeping the economy running and "maglevs" (maglevs is used as a catch-all term to describe developing new technology not yet practical for mass use).






"Can I get an AMEN! "


Ah...you are just harbouring ill feelings from some past run-in. Ya big grudge holder.
