    That Trump tweet is honest to god hilarious. I'd love to see people start retweeting that now that Warren is running.

    And holy fuck that video.

    Man he might not be the best president, but Trump could definitely be a good rapper. He'd drop diss tracks on everyone. And they would actually be good.

    Also @Paranoid Android , don't you think that rant is a bit much. As the person below you said, "savagery is in the eyes of the beholder". Honestly I didn't understand your entire rant but why do you want bullies working for you? And what do you mean by "dark years of high school?"

    Everyone gets stressed out by a lot of work. That doesn't mean burnouts are going to succeed. If you want to reach the top, working hard is important.

    Also yes, people skills are necessary to reach the top. You could be very smart but if you can't communicate, if you can't make friends, that's useless. You have to be funny, relateable, and honestly, a quick fire comeback like the one Trump made (full honesty guys, who here is smart enough for that level of "savagery" that fast) can make people like you.

    I get that everyone wants to succeed. The thing you need to understand is nerds/dorks are usually lacking in people skills. That's on them.

    Very few people are born with all the skills they need to succeed. You need to work on achieving the ones you don't have instead of dreaming that bullies will work for you.

    And as for the freaks comment, if you have the average person thinking that you are a freak, you're doing something wrong.

    Appears the Chinese have a historic claim to Australia, longer than their purchases of Australian businessmen and politicians would belie.

    Found by a pair of filmmakers who - fortuitously - just happened to be filming a documentary at the time. That seems like trustworthy archaeology.

    There's a corollary here about how the Chinese should go around seeding random coastlines with archaeological fakes.

    It wouldn't surprise me if it's true. There was a time when China sent out explorers by ship, but it was a very brief period because the Chinese governments have always had their hands full dealing with the trouble at home and couldn't afford to waste money on expeditions like what you'd need to build colonies.

    If I recall, Ming China had a pretty elaborate balance of influence going on in court, and the eunuchs that supported exploration got wrestled out of power by others.

    It's definitely plausible that one of Zheng He's expeditions made it to there.

    Ancient Maps show Australia as rightful Chinese clay. Should be incorporated, or else rebel island will suffer the full force of China's displeasure.

    Taiwan is a rebel, unrecognized name. Cease to use this rebel name or else China will boycott you and boycott all your partners. It's Administrative Region of the Extreme South.

    Does your country have a coastline on the Pacific Ocean?

    If yes: Chinese clay
    If no: Precede to Question 2

    Does your country exhibit behaviors that the Chinese would consider 'civilized' (written language, discovery of wheels, woven cloth)
    If yes: Obviously, ancestors were lost Chinese explorers. Welcome home! Chinese clay
    If no: Savages and animals. Not necessarily Chinese clay... but not not Chinese clay

    This is thankfully tempered by the fact that China is the most underforming nation in forever when it comes to fighting wars as the away team.

    If the monopoly man ran, he'd have my vote.

    Ready to support people in building businesses and doesn't care too much about social issues.

    Perfect libertarian.
