Yeah you just say I'm from Hong Kong, or I'm a Hong Konger. They generally don't like it whey they're called Chinese. I don't know enough Taiwanese people to say if they care about being called Chinese or not. I don't participate in the Taiwanese Student Association club; only the Chinese and the Hong Kong ones. XD
I don't know either but it wouldn't be not correct.
They are Han Chinese mostly. And their country's official name is "The Republic of China".Quote:Originally Posted by ThinkAwesome
I have never heard that... I've heard "I'm from Hong Kong," and if someone is from Hong Kong I will make sure to say that they are from Hong Kong instead of from China, but I have never heard someone use Hong Konger.
I hate it when people call me Taiwanese... I'm Thai...
...HAHA. I lol'd at that!
Since we don't pronounce the "H" in Thai, wouldn't it sound the same as saying Taiwanesepost #73234 of 983095/2/13 at 2:59pmpost #73235 of 983095/2/13 at 3:10pmpost #73236 of 983095/2/13 at 3:11pmpost #73237 of 983095/2/13 at 3:13pmpost #73238 of 983095/2/13 at 3:14pmQuote:Ah mmkay, that makes a bit more sense...Quote:Lol, you should join the Skype group chatQuote:Awwww, I would've posted that but he beat me to it on my birthday a couple of years ago... >_>Originally Posted by miceblue

I like Thai food too.
Deadly repercussions later though, more often than not.post #73240 of 983095/2/13 at 3:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by bowei006
This chart is a bit depressing but true
Not sure on how really accurate it is or its sources. But the majority of Americans would literally be the 1%.
I honestly didn't expect that.Quote:

I love so-called Thai food from so-called Thai restaurants in 'Merica. XD
I was talking to a friend about the authenticity of restaurant foods in 'Merica. A lot of so-called Indian food really isn't authentic. I was joking that I should make a new dish called "General Wu's Chicken". It dates back to the Han Dynasty and it was used to give his army strength and rejuvenation. Very authentic indeed, backed with historical background. Yup.post #73244 of 983095/2/13 at 3:49pm
Well, of course what you get here isn't what you'll get in Thailand, you just have to watch an Anthony Bourdain show. But, if the person taking my order is Thai and the person cooking it is Thai (I've asked) and the name of the dish in Thai, it's gotta be pretty close right? lolpost #73245 of 983095/2/13 at 3:58pm
Welp, got a full refund on my 1 year Crunchroll subscription. Was still in my free trial period anyway.
Playback is always VERY smooth on my iPhone 5 and iPad 4th gen. But on my PS3, Xbox 360, AND 13" MacBook Pro w/ retina display the playback was often stuttering. VERY VERY noticeable during panning sequences and sometimes even otherwise.
And just to see if it were the HD4000 in my rMBP not being able to handle things I tried THREE other laptops. One Mac and two Windows machines. All had the same issues. I went through tech support w/ CR to check my connection... 54Mbps down and 21Mbps up. And a very low ping. CERTAINLY not that.
The last CR employee who replied seemed to imply that my machines just couldn't properly decode the videos. So what does that mean? PS3, 360, and four laptops that are all Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge could not handle it? Three with quad core i7 and dedicated graphics? And my own with a measly dual core i5 and HD4000. So what am I supposed to use? A desktop w/ dual 8-core Xeon processors, 3 TITANS in SLI and 256GB RAM? Is that the only way to play back these mediocre quality streams?
Don't even get me started on the awful color banding and blocking issues. I was willing to look past those for convenient streaming. But stuttering I can absolutely not look past.
I want to also note that I had a Roku 3 for a day to test out the FUNimation app... Which is awful. Very slow. Decent video but awful sound quality. Had that flangy sound of very low bitrate audio. BUT Crunchyroll, if I recall correctly, did not stutter as much on the Roku 3. Perhaps they use the same or similar encodes w/ the Roku and iOS.
Nevertheless, I may or may not try a 1 month subscription and see how much I use it with my iPad. I COULD invest in the Roku 3 again, but do I really want to spend $100 when my PS3, 360, and/or laptop should all be perfectly capable of the same thing?
