That thread made me realize that a lot of people might not know when Asians ARE discriminated against, because we don't say anything. Because, yes, not getting into a better school than the one you're going to, doesn't really compare in the same way to a cop killing your brother. But, that doesn't make the discrimination any less real.

I'm also kinda annoyed how many people accused ME of being racist, or trying to "take away college spots from other minorities to give to Asians." What? No, I was just bitching that colleges discriminate against Asians, and also bitching about how "well-rounded" has been used AGAINST us.

Now you will eat ALL the food.

The real issue with all this affirmative action talk is that no on ever looks at the fact that admission numbers never decrease for white students and really it just serves as another insidious distractor pitting Asians and other minorities against one another over scraps.

Soju? I haven't had much of soju tbh. I've only drank it with one of my friends who is more into Korean shit than I am. It's okay, I guess. It is good with Sapporo Beer though. I remember we did shots with it and I very much enjoyed it.

Very pretty looking though. Not all mooncakes taste good.

Not a fan of the egg yolks either.

Soju (and Shochu) are middle tier mixers and middle tier booze in general.

Sweet Potato in particular is one of those things to only try once.

I've learned that to refuse a drink from Hmong folks is to be disrespectful/rude to the person who poured the drink and/or shot......... So it's hard for me to refuse a drink unless the people I'm drinking with doesn't adhere to that standard/rule.

Which bag color? Black or red? The red is just nuh uh. There is literally no flavor to it unless you want to get rid of the spice by adding a ton of extras. The black version is decently flavored and the spicy level is good for me. It also depends on how you make them. Some folks dive right in and make them like regular ramen: boil water, add the noodles and seasonings, and wait it out. <- that doesn't work out. The instructions tell people to boil the noodles, drain them of water, put the noodles into a bowl or plate, and then add the seasonings. <- that makes it better. Some folks like to stir-fry it, but I haven't tried that myself.

I haven't had BWW in a very long while now. Some friends and I ordered the hottest wings (blazing) when we were about 1-2 years out of high school and we handled it..... Ok? I don't quite remember.

I'm a Chinese from Singapore and our population is like 70% Chinese, 15% Malay, 10% Indians and 5% others.

I found out really early in my teens people here like to punch down according to the culture they grew up with. If you played mmos frequently in South East Asia, you'll notice Singaporeans tend to band together in a guild whereas other South East Asia don't quite care where ya from.

There's plenty of Asians supporting white supremacy, especially when they still harbour an option in marrying them. It's only when reality sets in, they married another Asian instead then I find their views slowly to be more pro-Asian because their offspring are one.

Even then, Asians from developed nations still likes to punch down on non-developed ones.

I get bloated if I start drinking milk after a prolonged period of not drinking it. Other than that, I'm fine.

I've never tried ghost pepper either but I can do the spicy ramen thing. The red one is only about 9000 scoville though, and the black one half that. Pretty sure ghost pepper is in the millions on the scoville scale LOL. I suppose the quantity might make up the difference somewhat, I don't know.

The hottest thing I've ever had is some chicken wings off a street vendor in China. I have NFI what sort of spices they put in that thing, but it was beyond anything else I've ever tried, nothing else I've had is even remotely close. I could feel it going down and I could feel burning in my stomach for hours after. And I only managed a single wing.
