They all have different family names.
Thomas Chien: family name is "Chien"
Wu Chien-Hung: family name is "Wu"
Justin Huang: family name is "Huang"
Mou Hsin Huang: family name is "Mou"
In Chinese, the family name is traditionally given first. Chinese who live in or frequently visit Western countries, or who often deal with Western visitors, often adopt Western given names for the convenience of people who don't speak Chinese. In such cases, they place the family name last, like most Westerners do, since this is what most Westerners expect. (My fiancée does this. And no, I'm not giving you either version of her name.
Example: The famous Hong Kong actor Chan Gong-sang is better is known to English speakers as Jackie Chan. His family name is Chan.
Not sure what happens when Jackie visits Hungary, though.
You're either misinformed or just making stuff up.
A habit is a behaviour or activity you engage in, but can exercise control over. An addiction is an activity over which you have lost control (IOW you can't stop yourself from doing it, even if you know full well that it will lead to an undesirable result).
Ingestion of a substance can be either a habit or an addiction, but is not a distinguishing factor between the two--for example, heroin is known to be chemically addictive (i.e., physiologically addictive), but cannabis is generally held not to be (although cannabis can be and often proves to be psychologically addictive).
This is why you'll find entries for both "chemical addiction" and "behavioural addiction" on Wikipedia, as well as other sources.
Makes me wish I still worked in radio. Back then, I had a clause in my contract stating that I could not allow my name, voice, or likeness to be used for promotion of any product, service, or organisation without the station's prior approval. Now *that* would be interesting to see FB's legal department deal with.
I'm sure there are lots of folks with FB pages who have similar, existing contractual agreements.
Cue the lawsuits in 3... 2... 1...

I miss biscuits and gravy sometimes. Otherwise it's all good.
There's even a notice about holding dual citizenship printed inside US passports. It's Item 14 under "IMPORTANT INFORMATION".
I've travelled all over the world and the following is the complete list of border security issues I've endured over the last 10 years:
1. Brisbane, Australia, 2003: They made me throw out a brick of cheese I'd purchased in New Zealand. They told me that, had it been in the original unopened factory packaging, they'd have let it through.
2. Penang, Malaysia, 2006: They had me open up my laptop and start it. The guard then picked it up, held it up high to look at the bottom, then lost his grip and dropped it. It bounced off the conveyor, and landed on, then cartwheeled down the flight of steps immediately behind the conveyor all the way down to the next floor. The guard looked absolutely horrified and practically fell down the steps himself going after it and bringing it back up to me, apologising profusely all the while, then waited while I made sure it still worked. I'm posting with that laptop now, BTW, which I still keep around for reading stuff online when I'm too lazy to get the good one out of my bag.
3. Beijing, China, 2010: Got read the riot act for having "smuggled" a cigarette lighter with me on a flight from Frankfurt. I told them, truthfully, that they saw it at the security checkpoint in Frankfurt and did not offer to take it away from me. The border guard in question accused me of lying. I responded, "Please go give them a call and ask them if they take away cigarette lighters from outbound passengers on international flights, because I am pretty sure they will tell you that they don't. I'll be happy to wait while you check." He came back about 5 minutes later and said, "You can go." He kept the lighter, though.
4. Newark International, USA, 2011: Had a half-metre ethernet cable confiscated as a potential weapon. Me: "Weapon? Huh?" Bitchy old TSA lady: "You could strangle somebody with that thing." Me: "That would have never occurred to me in a million years, until you suggested it just now. Well done." She started to say something after that, but her 2 colleagues both started chuckling, and she gave me a look that could have curdled vinegar. After about 10 seconds, one of the others said, "Maddy's having one of her good days--On your way, son", and off I went.
It you can't be bothered to read the post to which I was responding, then you're the one in the echo chamber, not I.

You're not very good at the context thing, are you?
Do you realise how many hardware and cameras are out there?
Yes, I do. And...?
