He's not a lunatic. It's insulting because he refuses to acknowledge that it's a port and not a river. One of the reasons Hong Kong is so wealthy is because of it's PORT.

He keeps doing it time and time again. Whether he's ignorant, or being a wind-up, it's incredibly annoying.

FYI, Hong Kong city planning was done by the British in the "western" style, and carried through after the handover. It is not done in the "Chinese" way.
That's why HK is different from the mainland cities in this aspect.

Hey, calm down, my friend. I hate people calling our harbour like that as well. No need to be that agitated.

This skyscraper, and what it does for the already-awesome HK skyline,
excites me in a way many would consider... unnatural

Penile erection upon looking at phallus objects is a completely natural phenomenon.
