    not true... I lived in Taiwan for 3 years and witnessed this almost daily. Even at night when there isn't a single soul on the road I would see people wait for the signal. I often went to the grocery after midnight and would cross the street diagonally to the opposite corner instead of crossing one street and then the other. They would look at me like I was crazy... of course I thought the same about them! :nodding:

    Pretty sure that this is rare, if not completely isolated as well. [​IMG]

    no... many Asians (particularly women) believe it is actually unhealthy to drink ice water and they often drink it warm... my gf does it all the time.

    I lived in Charles Village, right next to the Hopkins campus. I would be walking around late at night and see them waiting at the crosswalk of a residential intersection, cars being an extremely rare occurrence. I'd always see people just waiting there for the walk sign, alone, silence. It seemed so odd, like they're an effing ghost. I would just walk up to the crosswalk, pause briefly to look at them, and they would totally pretend that I wasn't there.

    They might actually be onto something. Whenever I drink ice-cold ice water, I can openly admit that it is not at all pleasant.

    I've noticed drinking cold stuff makes me sweat more and gives me stomach cramps. Hot tea year round for me.

    Stop dining in hell. I've never had an issue with non-ice water being too warm in 10 minutes.

    I have a friend who is really into this stuff. He's sponsored, and he even travels to events. Prior to his involvement in it, I didn't realize it was such a well-developed subculture. Definitely a little odd.

    Actually, on second thought, perhaps I should say I have a friend who was really into this. He's got a serious lady friend now, and he posted on Facebook last night that he'll be selling off his collection of RC cars and accessories. Despite his claims to the contrary, I don't think this is a coincidence. :laugh:

    :lol: this is a good one. I've seen grown men break out the RC car in a parking lot in front of women and actually look try to look cool/arrogant - like its something to be proud of.

    if you're racing them in an actual sanctioned race, racing them as a hobby to share with your child, then its alright i guess. But the guys that will just race them around in parking lots aimlessly for fun... thats something I don't get.

    disclaimer: from the ages of 8-12yo I was a nerdy, girlfriend-less, aZn child obsessed with RC cars. I eventually got lucky and found girls and organized sports from 13yo onward.

    He was 30+ and all alone in playing with it in a public park.

    It's the 3rd time this week I see grown men playing with RC cars all alone, the one today wasn't even a petrol one, just a regular electric one, which just makes it even more sad.


    I get it if you are playing with your son or nephew, but by your damn self.
