Four years and $50,000+ later…….finally received my BA in the mail!!!!
Dated on my birthday too. Definitely the latest but the best present I’ve ever gotten.

Now this is a nice color.
Still bothered by how the headlights connect to the grilles and the shape of the hood though.
I’m not going to lie, I laughed after two seconds of seeing this.
Americans (I guess I should say we Americans since I am an American-born citizen after all) creating barricades = pile shit in the middle of the street, burn cars, smash windows, etc.
But mostly, pile random shit out on the street in a pile. Voila, an American-made barricade.
Now, HK’ers = make use of the surroundings in a geometrical fashion and connect the bamboo used in construction/remodeling buildings to cover more surface area while maintaining a relatively “clean” street.
This is frustrating
Anti-protesters and government people are saying that protesters are a problem because they hinder business and daily lives. Who thinks that the protesters don’t want to go home either?? At this point, most protesters are willing to leave peacefully once the government is willing to have a meeting…
Hong Kong is a city in China, not a country.
What everyone fails to understand is that most people are using the freedom argument and Xi Jinping’s betrayal as a slippery slope towards other things in the future.
If China cedes and gives in to what HK wants, Chinese citizens themselves may start plotting their own uprising/protests once they realize the government isn’t oppressive anymore, or at least bold enough to crush them immediately. China’s already having a difficult time censoring everything they can that has to do with the protests so Chinese citizens living in China won’t get any ideas of their own.
However if China completely destroys the protests through force, there goes the economy among other things. HK was and still is, in a sense, China’s biggest gateway to the rest of the financial world. Lots of expatriates and foreigners working there and China permits this because HK is their little experiment, to see how well they fare exposed to the rest of the world vs. controlled capital/equity in China. The entire world is watching now, thanks to the spread of social media and technology, which is why China isn’t going to pull another Tiananmen but they also won’t show any signs of weakness by meeting with anyone.
China just wants to show the world and remind HK that it’s a city in China, not a country.
In case you were wondering how big the protests in Hong Kong were.
fortunately HK’ers aren’t like Americans….no guns present, no molotovs being chucked, no fights breaking out among the demonstrators, etc.
