Some challenges for Winston

Postby formosan » 01 Aug 2009, 15:30

I encourage study of occult and paranormal topics.

However, I have some small criticisms of some of the articles hosted on this site, which I will publish as soon as I find the proper sub-forum.

Update:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=218

is a link to my objections.

Welcome formosan.

I'll look at your critique later.

Are you Taiwanese too? Why do you call yourself formosan?

I'm not ethnically Taiwanese; in fact I'm white. Centuries ago, some Europeans called Taiwan "Ilha Formosa," and because I live in Taiwan I have a Formosan residence... thus the name "formosan."

Oh I see. Well I'm Taiwanese and having been to Taiwan a few times, I would sympathize with any foreigner who has to live there cause the language barrier must be a huge obstacle as well as the different communication style. If I didn't speak Taiwanese, I'd feel frustrated and go crazy there.

Are you teaching English there?

I already responded to your challenge in your other thread. See it there.

Welcome to the forum by the way.
