  1. Best thing about Disneyland?

     

    It's totally forgetting that Disney bought Lucas Films and then finding this :

    Pictures with Darth Vader, Kylo Ren and C3PO coming soon! :P

  2. Just spent the whole day at Disneyland Shanghai, while it is cheaper because it's in China, it's still stupidly expensive!

     

    Worth it regardless!

  3. HELP PC WONT POST

    Threads merged and moved to the Troubleshooting section.
  4. Someone in China decided to yolo their company name, quite literally!!

      Considering some of the wild and wacky seller names I've seen on eBay and Amazon, I'm surprised it took them this long.

       

      My favorite was still "Amazing Sparkle"--a laptop battery seller. They were pushing Bay Valley Parts shit, of course, but it was still fun to see a company named for the one thing LiPo batteries should not do.

      In China the nonsensical names and typos are everywhere, either with the company name or on the product they're selling.

       

      Tried to take a picture of someone's baseball cap in the metro the other day but it turned out blurry, the writing said "I'm basy" (instead of busy).

       

      Also saw a business called Victorai instead of Victoria but for that one the picture came out fine xD

      You can also find fake/imitation stores, like this fake Apple store ;

      Same goes with cars, I'll try to post some of the car pictures I have in the car thread of the off-topic section.

       

      Chinais really a unique place :D

      Indeed. It's on the list of places I'd love to visit, if only to see the amazing knockoff crap.

  5. No food today!

     

    Went to the Shanghai zoo, even had the pleasure to sit on an elephant for a small ride with my daughter!

      @Cinnabar Sonarprobably tastes like smoked chicken xD

      @Ethocreeper So, better than America?

    4. wkdpaul

      wkdpaul

      @Cinnabar Sonar sorry, totally forgot to reply!

       

      IMO it tastes better, less oily, it's a bit spicy and much more crispy. Bought KFC only a few times in Canada and US in our life time, but when in China my wife and I make sure we go to KFC a few times while here!

  6. Seems like I'm turning those status update into a Chinese food exhibit! xD

     

    So anyway, today was time for some Xi'an (西安) food! And of course, the obligatory Coca-Cola ;)

  8. Totally forgot about that notification, so when I saw your profile banner, I was completely confused as to why I was seeing a notification there ... Then half a second later I remembered where it came from xD

      Thing is, it could hold true for any country/citizen out there.

       

      There are lots of things that bothers me with Chinese behaviors, but I've learned to look pass it, it's all cultural anyway and they don't mean anything bad by it! Plus it's not ALL of them that have those "quirks" that I find annoying, I wouldn't have married my wife if she had any of the behaviors that bothers me ;)

       

      Same goes with some Canadians, there are things that bothers me but I don't sweat over it ;)

    3. L.Lawliet

      L.Lawliet

      Yeah its their culture that bothers me..good and bad is subjective anyway so yeah..

      Ur wife is chinese?

       

      @Ethocreeper My cat he's a lazy son of a gun but he always listen to me and came when i need him but most of the times when he doesnt have anything to do. (like what can a cat do?) he just sleep in the cage 24/7

      Spoiler

      Yes, we met here in Shanghai when I came working here almost 10 years ago, she came with me when I moved back to Canada, but we come back almost every year.

       

      My wife and daughter, today at the natural history museum of Shanghai (sorry about the crap cellphone picture) ;

  10. As @Alexsolo said, it's only the cryptonight algorithm, in my case I went from less than $0.8/day to around $2/day... It has now leveled out. Seems it also borked the nicehash stats pages, at one point my reported profitability was around $9/day, far from my actual $2.5-2.7/day.
  11. Chinese fondue has nothing on the real thing ; HotPot !!!

     

    YUM!!!

      Yeah I could tell :P The font and bottle and everything were exact, if it had been a copy they would be sued so hard xD

      wkdpaul

      It's China, not sure they could have been sued ... I'll try to get pictures of funny knockoffs I see. :D

  12. Yum, Chinese "street" breakfast is the best! :D

    I'll try to take a picture, but they have whole streets with tiny stores, and sometimes some mobile ones, that open before surise to make all kinds of food for people to get their breakfasts. It's all great food! xD

      Can you access Google services like Gmail or Netflix from China?

    4. wkdpaul

      wkdpaul

      Only through a VPN, Google services (including YT) and other stuff like Facebook and Twitter are all blocked.

       

      So here Android phones rely on other services, often supplied by the phone makers.

  13. Anyone up for weird chips flavors? xD

      @TVwazhere yeah, she was ok though, lots of kids TV shows and movies, plus she slept twice, so in the end it was all good! :D

       

      @BlueChinchillaEatingDorito wait, seriously? They have MCM? I hope they serve tofu burgers to complement that! xD

  15. oh wait ... totally forgot, you actually need a cross-over cable for that. Unless you have the appropriate cable or a switch, it won't be possible.
