    Li Au is a philosopher. For those who dunno him, refrain from making comments. It make yourself looks silly.
    He's not just a lot smarter, he quite brilliant, literally. For myself, I'm just quite disappointed when he decides to side with Ah Bian. Cast a serious doubt on his loyalty towards truth & knowledge.

    oh yar, just a point to note. He made his fortune sueing the butts off people... just tot this pt. might be of interest

    Everyone is smart in his/her own way.
    But nobody is that smart to call others stupid.

    Can he take beautiful pictures as those taken by CSers????
    I believe many here can do a better job using a P&S camera than him using a highend SLR.

    again, no comments. coz tht's not what he meant. as mentioned, he's a philosopher. philosophers are not in the habit of competition of whose better. plus, this guy is already past the age whereby he needs to compare himself to others.

    If there's no truth in what he says, let's not be bothered about his comments... But if there's any truth in them, even the slightest, why don't we pick it up from here and reflect and improve if necessary? What do we have to lose?

    2nd cheers to S'poreans

    This means we are over-taxed, effectively. Should you be overjoyed if someone overcharges you for a service, then gives you a "rebate"?
    Over-taxed. Wow.

    anyway, on CPF, it one of the most ingenious scheme. everyone (other countries) is so envious of the scheme.

    shd we focus so much on the negative side of SG until to the stage to agree with a frog in the well on his theories? or shd we focus more on the positive side of SG..?

    no matter which country in this world.. there's always pro & cons.. y not jus accept what & who we are rather then to find fault and point fingers?

    Hmmm not to side with anybody... or start a S'Pore vs. Taiwan thing.

    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong... my history is a little rusty.

    Now wasn't Taiwan formed after the communists chased the guo min tang out of china? And IIRC they were once the govt of china till the commies came along.

    So while what he says as a philosopher or academic may be true (and I say may... I'm not agreeing with him), has he thought of his own country men and their heritage.

    At the very least we're recognised as an independent nation by the world, be we fools or idiots or inferior stock. We don't have china threatening to invade us, nor do we have to bribe poor nations to recognise us, nor do we have countries test firing missiles off our coast.

    And if a nation of fools can declare independence 41 yrs ago, how come taiwan's still a proxy of china?

    ooh. u dun really want to hear wht this guy had said about his own countryman. i kinda suspect this is how he got rich... haha. by antagonising others into a mistake and then sueing them off their 7 generation of riches.

    anyway, lets not take it in a defensive mode as SGians like to do so. He is not trying to defend his country by puting other pple down. nor is he trying to say taiwanese are better than others.

    Hahah... jus saw on chinese news jus now... he was interviewed and was asked about his 'insult' to S'pore...

    He said that S'poreans very cute... He claimed that he condemned PRC Chinese, they didn't say anything... he condemned Hong Kong people, they didn't utter a word... he condemned Taiwaneses, they also didn't retaliate... But when he 'condemned' S'poreans, we were the only ones who responded so furiously...

    He said he won't comment further... BUT, if the S'pore government is interested, or if any S'pore universities are keen to invite him, he'll rise to the occassion and come alone to face Singaporeans to address this issue...

    hahahahah... I think Shadus is right to say that he's gonna make a windfall if anyone here is stupid enough to invite him here... LOL

    Haha the laws in singapore are quite different from taiwan. I'd say anyone who baits him here is smart. The stupid one is he if he comes.
