Somewhat Morbid, Somewhat Cute, Somewhat Topical

Chinese students tear up textbooks and exam papers to release stress.

Although April Fools’ Day has passed, I’m still going to post this utterly ruthless way of messing with your teacher: Write on the blackboard “Teacher…I’m so tired…”, then place your shoes neatly on the window sill, and finally have everyone lie strewn all over the ground below… Just what sinister brain came up with this? Talk about throwing the teacher’s heart down into an abyss with just one blow…

For Qingming Festival, we should go back to our high schools to tomb-sweep, because that is where our youth is buried.

The Natural Sciences teacher asked: “Why is the human body cold after one dies?” Nobody answered. The teacher asked again: “Nobody knows?” At this moment, a classmate stood up and said: “That’s because ”a calm heart keeps you cool”.

After watching The Return of the Condor Heroes, I understood that age is not a problem. After watching King Kong, I understood that race is not a problem. After watching Brokeback Mountain, I understood that sex is not a problem. After watching A Chinese Ghost Story, I understood that even death is not a problem. And you’re telling me it’s because of distance, and because of time?! Fuck…

A Chinese Ghost Story

A boy fell in love with a girl. When he confessed his love for her, the girl rejected him. She said: “I’m one whole year older than you.” The boy responded: “When I was one month old, you were 13 months old. Your age was 13 times mine. When I was two months old, you were 14 months old. Your age was seven times mine. When I was one year old, you were two years old. Your age was two times mine. As long as you are willing to be with me forever, we will always be getting closer and closer… What a beautiful story, except it was used by the Math teacher to explain the “concept of limit”.

[Note: This alludes to recent news stories of Chinese couples getting divorced to avoid new policies and taxes intended to cool China’s real estate market by restricting the number of homes people can purchase and taxing capital gains.]
