Your worst advice in 2 sentences or less.
« on: January 06, 2012, 08:42:36 AM »
OK, I do it all the time.  I'm the one who told someone to use a magnifying glass to get an "ants eye" view of a solar eclipse. qqqqqqqqqq

Now's your chance to join the entertainment.  Share your worst advice, be it on China or any other topic.  Keep it to 2 sentences or less.  Don't be afraid to let rip with some advice that will result in a United Nations hearing on the subject if anyone really does it (Note:  Please do avoid super-sensitive topics that might be considered. . . unharmonious - we're here to have fun, not to get blocked).  Anyone who actually follows advice from a "worst advice" thread probably deserves to be injured, killed, or locked away in prison or a mental hospital for life anyway. ahahahahah 

Remember, keep it short.  Two sentences or less, recalling that comma splices and other grammatical abuses can give you a lot of extra room just to go on and on and on in only a single sentence or even two sentences instead of breaking the advice you are giving into a larger number of sentences of reasonable length (sadly, this sentence is how I normally write).

****

It's safest and easiest to get your teaching job in China through a recruiter.  They are all honest and upstanding citizens who will work very hard to get you into the best possible job with very good contract terms. ahahahahah

Remember, the cheaper the baijiu, the better tasting it is and the less likely it will cause a hangover.  Never spend more than 10 rmb per bottle and you'll do fine. agagagagag

And your second sentence?
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad. - B. O'Driscoll.
TIC is knowing that, in China, your fruit salad WILL come with cherry tomatoes AND all slathered in mayo. - old34.

OK, I'll play

"Advice" from various Chinese over the years:

1. "Really, when Chinese say "Hello!" to you on the street, they're showing their warmth, respect and hospitality."
2. "'Laowai' is not a negative, derisive term; but rather a term of respect."

The water in China is clean and pure.  You can drink water directly from the tap in your home. bjbjbjbjbj

The more students in an oral English class the better. It makes class discussions more lively.

When travelling in the USA or Canada, be sure to stop, pick up, cuddle and then take home those cute, fluffy, black-and-white striped kittie cats.

When someone says "you teach me English, I teach you Chinese" always say yes, you will learn so much Chinese.

When someone tells you stinky tofu is very delicious, believe them.

Durian really is a fruit that's healthy and delicious (rumors of it being an egg of some alien monster are somewhat exaggerated).  It tastes almost as good as stinky dofu, so eat up and enjoy (and don't worry about sleeping in the same apartment as a Durian that's hatching splitting open).
