Lebensraum, errant, quaff, slur, manhandled


Forget about Isis, the P.R.C. Chinese will be visiting a town near you soon. Now buying your stuff, next month buying your newspaper (cf. South China Morning Post in Hong Kong and almost all newspapers in Taiwan) and pressuring anyone who is "not a friend of China". No, I am not joking, this is going to happen. When I was young South Africa was the big bad country. China is ten times worse, but when white represses black it is called (rightly so) racism, when yellow represses yellow it is called "another culture". Western civilization has been bought by hyper nationalist fascist China. Of course everybody forgot the last time we had a heavily armed country like that with an enormous inferiority complex demanding Lebensraum.
忘了伊西斯, p.r.c. 中國會造訪的一個小鎮附近儘快回覆您. 現在買你的東西, 下個月買你的報紙(cf. 南華早報在香港和幾乎所有報紙在臺灣)和逼誰是"不是 朋友 的 中國". 不, 我不是在開玩笑, 這是會發生的. 我年輕時南非是大壞國家. 中國是十次了, 但更糟的時候, 白色represses黑它叫做(為什麼會那麼)種族歧視, 當黃represses黃色, 它叫"另一 種 文化". 西方文明已經買了超級民族主義法西斯中國. 當然大家都忘了最後的時間, 我們有了個沈重的武裝國家像那個跟個巨大的自卑感追求生存空間.

Japan’s Finance Minister to Quit After G-7 Blunder
By HIROKO TABUCHI and BETTINA WASSENER
Shoichi Nakagawa had raised eyebrows for slurred speech and muddled answers at a news conference.


From the Fringe | 10.03.2008 Sunbed Slur Almost Causes International IncidentSeveral empty deck chairs on the beach

Passengers on a two-week Caribbean cruise in February should have been quaffing cocktails and bonding by the pool. But they ended up drawing lines in the sand instead.

There's always going to be trouble in paradise. Despite the glorious trappings, passengers on board P&O's 77,000-ton Oceana liner were getting royally fed up with the lack of available deck chairs, accusing certain errant holidaymakers of using towels, books and bags to reserve places.
In the British mind, this could mean one thing, and one thing only: Germans were at work, seeking as ever to expand their Lebensraum.
