Journal Journal: Establishment vs Establishment 1

The framing of the 2016 election is that this is the establishment vs the anti-establishment. Clinton represents Washington DC. Trump represents the masses.

This is bullshit.

Different setup in Beijing where any meaningful interpretation of "moving about the airport" involves going out of doors between terminal buildings.

Shanghai/Pudong seems like a much nicer airport, though (only been through there once). I particularly enjoyed the calligraphy shop and getting to watch and have a chat with the chief calligrapher as he worked.

Let me spell it out for you:

1. Google created and maintains at its own expense a mechanism for redirecting users to your site and Google doesn't charge you anything for it.

2. Now you're demanding that Google pay you for what you're already receiving at no charge to you.

If, given (1), it sounds like (2) is pretty fucked up, that's because it is.

Jedidiah, you're normally pretty astute, but on this issue I must inform you that with all due respect you have not got a single fucking clue.

*Neither* of those things happened to me when I was hospitalised in China a couple of years ago.

What I did get was prompt, professional, and effective treatment by very qualified doctors and staff using the latest equipment in a very modern and well-maintained facility.

I also received a bill for 1600RMB, because I'm not a Chinese citizen and I informed them that I was able to pay.

Can you remind me which US hospital it is that only charges $250 for ER admission + overnight stay? I can't seem to recall...

Ever had a big-mac in another country? Not the same... Heartbreaking shit : (

No. I've had many Big Macs/Whoppers/etc. in about 20 countries.

In many of these places, the food's actually *better* than at the same chains in the US due to local food safety/quality regulations.

The lone exception being that I've yet to find a KFC outside the US that serves biscuits instead of replacing them with bread rolls. *snif*
