brantgoose: . All of Canada's universities are in the top 200 universities


oh really?

http://www.shanghairanking.com/ARWU2012.html

i count seven (7) canadian universities in the top 200. still very respectable but let's not get carried away with ourselves here...

but by the way your latest post is absolutely hilarious (and true, naturally...)

FizixJunkee: DerAppie:
2. They hardly ever clean up after themselves (I have even been lied to when I asked someone if she shouldn't unclog the drain. It wasn't her she said, despite the fact that I saw her do the dishes while I was cooking. no one else used the sink.)

I've been wondering about something for a while now. At school---at least, in the physics, chemistry, and math buildings, the only building on campus I ever walk into---I've been seeing lots of handwritten signs above sinks that say "Do Not Put Food In Sink." Even one of the signs explicitly says food goes into the trash and not into the sink. Is it because of the Chinese kids that these signs exist?


Yes. Fun fact: the university would give out flyers in operating western toilets because so many of Asians would simply stand on the toilet, squat down and then spray shiat al over the seat. Step down from the toilet and walk away as if nothing happened.

Bondith: DerAppie: I lived in a "dormitory" once upon a time. ... They would overwhelmingly say that they'd love for the Chinese to gtfo. Why? here's a list:

7. I have never seen a Chinese go to the depot to collect the complementary toilet paper/garbage bags we were entitled to.

That doesn't sound right. The impression I got from my Chinese (Canadian born, HK extraction) ex was that Asians will abuse the hell out of anything free. When we went out to eat and I took napkins sufficient for my needs, she'd roll her eyes at me, tell me I wasn't Asian enough and grab a huge wad.


There was a certain allotment per hallway. You couldn't simply walk in thrice a day and get a roll of garbage bags. I think it has something to do with the communal aspect. In China groups are important but if you aren't in charge you won't do anything until someone in charge orders you.

Obviously, the parents ARE stupid. Everybody knows that the easiest way to get a kid into a college is to donate a large sum of money TO THE COLLEGE, not some asshole calling himself a "consultant."

Freshmen of all stripes can be breathtakingly dumb if mommy did everything for them at home, so I wouldn't put all the blame on FOBs, but you've got to admit that the more hardcore do go out of their way to make a bad impression instead of integrating at all.

Good.

Asian students are crowding out American students in American schools. Just because you have better academics doesn't mean that you deserve to attend an elite university more.

Damn I need to get in on this consulting thing.

But aren't these the sort of people we should be encouraging to stay in the US? Why not bring the best and brightest over here and give them the best education their money and hard work can buy and encourage them to stay here and make more money for the rest of us? Right now I understand we pretty much send most foreign students back after their student visa expires, which makes no sense if we consider a university system to be more of an investment in an education nation than it is about making the school money.
