I don't really know what happened in the intervening time, other than that I'd been out for a bit and I'd gone through the mini bar in the room.

That snake is now Maj. Panic's pet. He souvenired it on his last junket through Asia.

Actually, we ate it last year. Times got tough, y'know what I'm saying? Curried snake

Just in case you guys actually believe we'd do something like that...

There was one white teacher I had who was better at pronouncing Asian surnames (like Ng) than most of the Asian students. Now that was weird.
Ahh, right.

How do you feel about Asians who come to Australia changing their names to English ones? I noticed that happened a lot in Queensland. Some of the choices were truly shocking. My mother taught a little Homer, and let's say the Iliad and the Odyssey had nothing to do with that choice.

The titles of all the chapters are U2 songs.

For the 1994-98 era? "Some Days Are Better Than Others."

1999-2008 should be "Some Albums Are Worse Than Others. Much, Much Worse. Oh Non-Existent God!"

Passengers:

Bono and Edge love it. Larry thinks it's self indulgent. Adam was smoking pot to stop himself from drinking.

Phail Collins. Wait, are we talking about surnames or just names here?

If it's surnames, I think they should be disowned. You can't really hide who and what you are, and besides, China has a very rich and complex history and traditions to be proud of. And, of course, some other stuff not to be proud of.

If it's just regular names, that's often just hilarious. Normally they just tack on another name, so they become like John Wang Wat Ah, Wang being the surname, Wat Ah being the Chinese equivalent to a first name and John being their "Christian" or first name.

It's a growing trend in Hong Kong and I believe Japan to have a "Christian" name, although given the levels of English literacy there, people often just go for names they think sound nice. This unfortunately results in people being called like "Pizza" or "Judas" or "Italy", sort of thing.
