girls are amazing
My name is Ezra. I’m 24, agender, lesbian, vegan straight edge and disabled. I’m desperately looking for a place to stay even if it’s for a few days with a queer person in VA Beach/Norfolk VA area (please don’t comment if you live in Richmond I have no way of…
CANT RISK IT
First of all, that first statement is an overgeneralization. Not every Chinese person is going to be skilled at math of course. It’s ignorant to go into these stereotypes.
But try this:
Read them out loud to yourself. Now look away, and spend twenty seconds memorizing that sequence before saying them out loud again.
If you speak English, you have about a 50 percent chance of remembering that sequence perfectly If you’re Chinese, though, you’re almost certain to get it right every time.
Why is this?
One explanation is because the Chinese language allows them to read numbers faster.
Chinese number words are remarkably brief. Most of them can be said in less than 1/4th of a second (for instance, 4 is ‘si’ and 7 ‘qi’)
Their English equivalents—”four,” “seven”—are longer: pronouncing them takes about 1/3 of a second.
The English number system is also VERY illogical.
For example, right after the word 10, instead of saying one-ten, two-ten, three-ten we have different words like 11,12.
Not so in China, Japan and Korea. They have a logical counting system. Eleven is ten one. Twelve is ten two. Twenty-four is two ten four, and so on.
That difference means that Asian children learn to count much faster. Four year old Chinese children can count, on average, up to forty. American children, at that age, can only count to fifteen, and don’t reach forty until they’re 5 years old.
The regularity of their number systems also means that Asian children can perform basic functions—like addition—far more easily.
Ask an English seven-year-old to add thirty-seven plus twenty two, in her head, and she has to convert the words to numbers (37 + 22).
Ask an Asian child to add three-tens-seven and two tens-two, and no translation is necessary.

Huh. That’s really interesting!
This makes so much more sense than the racist bullshit people come up with.
this applied to Thai language as well.
You should listen how Asian children recite the times table.
Okay but hear me out here.

He can’t have too much bean, he lives in the chilly zone. He’ll get cold beanies and that’s no good.
Hey again everyone, I leafed through my resources and felt these info graphics might would help as well. I have heard reports of restaurants and some stores being forced to close, and many are cut off from their vehicles. I do not recommend carrying any sort of weapon (these graphics are made with outdoor survival in mind) as the police would use it as an excuse to advance on the hierarchy of force ( a rule set in place that dictates when officers can use what kind of force, obviously they are only loosely using it at the moment)
Many protesters may not be able to get to their cars or get home and if you are going to be out all night these graphics will help you pack a kit to take with you and maximize efficiency as you carry it.
Also the MRE, Cliff Bar, and camp stove guides will help you stock up on items you can carry and share for those who are hungry. A CAVEAT: The campstove might be seen as a incendiary device so use away from police in a safe non-flammable area.
Lastly If you are looking to buy a gas mask. Many construction respirators will work, however, you can buy a surplus Czech M10 gas mask and replacement filters for about 25-30 bucks ( the mask with two filters is usually 15-18 bucks). I own one and can explain how to use it if needed. Stay safe and be careful.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS!
