Stupid Theory Tries To Claim Terracotta Army Was Inspired By Greece

Recently, there is this stupid theory tries to claim Terracotta Army that guards Chinese first emperor’s afterlife got inspiration from Greece.  Even now I think it’s really a lame theory, border beyond jokes.  Whoever repeats this theory in my eyes is the stupidest person on earth.  You know the chance for the right person with the right knowledge to transfer such inspiration from the far flung West to far flung East — in the ancient time in which traveling from one neighboring country to another was so difficult — is slim to nil.  Even the Romans themselves much later couldn’t even meet up with the Chinese.  Yet here we have a stupidest theory on earth, with no evidence whatsoever, suggests that an ancient person from Greece traveled to China to spread an art form in which inspired the Terracotta Army.  As if it’s a blaspheme for another region on earth to create beautiful art, because there should be none other than the West that could come up with such an art form.  Furthermore, how stupid can you be to not see that replicating a real life size figure is not that hard.  After all, you got a real soldier in real armor and weapons in detail, how hard is it to not be able to replicate such figure into art form such as life size figurine creation?  If Greece was the inspiration, why Greece didn’t have the Terracotta Army themselves?  When you look at Greece’s ancient sculptures, these figures got naked bodies and such — emphasizing masculinity.  When I look at Terracotta Army figures, I see soldiers in ancient Chinese uniforms with Asian characteristics, and these figures don’t look like the Greece’s ancient sculptures at all.  I guess the people who suggest the theory I’m bashing of are the people who are too stupid to even imagine that another human being could come up with similar art form.  Enough rant, because even I feel stupider for trying to defend the truth from such an idiotic theory.  Check out the video right after the break if you brave enough to get a dosage of stupidness.

Awesome Magicians Yif and Cyril

In my opinion, so called magicians are the people who have done extreme preparations to achieve amazing results that would make people’s eyes, minds, and other senses go berserk in childish ways such as “Wow, how did you do that?” — their eyes would want to pop out of their sockets to show how much they adore at the magician’s trick and hope that the magician would reveal how the trick was done.  On camera or in real person, either way these tricks are amazing to say the least, because you cannot use your common sense to explain how the tricks were done unless you’re already know how to do them in the first place.  Magicians make their tricks look effortlessly real too!

At the moment, I like 2 magicians very much and these are Yif and Cyril.  Check out their videos right after the break and be wow.

Education Of Tomorrow Won’t Be So Static As The Current One

As 21st century moves along, I think education will eventually take up a new shape.  The future is here, because new technologies in communication and learning keep on happening.  This means in the future children and adults alike will have more choices of how to go about learning something.  Furthermore, artificial intelligence may just take over the teachers’ job one day, because new information can always be fed into AI’s algorithms that could be helpful to how teaching would be done in the future.

Of course, I don’t think futuristic educational system would bring education into only homeschool situation.  In fact I think without real interaction among real human fellow students, no matter how excellent a futuristic educational system could become the students would not be able to excel.  I think students’ cooperation in activities such as teamwork is very important, because besides learning just facts students could enhance real life experiences such as how to help each other out in completing a project and whatnot.

Still, I think the futuristic educational system might be very different than what we have now, because robots will be able to communicate with humans as if they’re human.  Thus, robots with super intelligent artificial brains could become both teachers and fellow students to help human students learn better.

While we think of the positive possibilities of a futuristic educational system, we should also take a closer look at what we’re having now.  I think the current educational system may not be able to do a good job in preparing the students for an even faster, ever changing future.  As we speak, many forms of communication allow messages and information to transform the world at breakneck speed.  If we throw in the futuristic artificial intelligence aspect, the future might very well be operating at a faster speed than now.  Right now though, the current education system isn’t fast enough in updating educational courses to stay relevant with time.  Thus, students can only learn what had happened and won’t be ready for a totally different future.

I could be exaggerating a bit, but what if whatever students learn right now could not help them find a job when they’re ready to enter the workforce?  Perhaps, what they are learning right now could be outdated in a few years, and nobody could help them when they are ready for the job market.  As earth population size increases and communication becomes even faster, the competitiveness of the world workforce can only be increased.  This means more people are going to compete for the same skills and jobs.  Jobs are finite, and so not everyone will be able to bring the bacon home.  Without a proper education, such a population will be missing out in competitiveness.

When we throw artificial intelligence into the equation of tomorrow, the probability of finding a good job in the future would be shrunk to many times more.  After all, artificial intelligence could provide efficient and smart automation, and these capabilities could outperform the human touch.  In my opinion, as time ticks along, I can see a future where humans would face so much competition that without a proper education the situation could only become ever more severe.  Nonetheless, no students would be able to get proper education if the education system of today can only be so static.

Furthermore, if teachers of today are not being paid adequately, the breakdown of the current education system is already at a critical juncture.  Of course, the future will come eventually, but don’t we also have to worry about right now?  Thus I think besides providing a good education, the people who are striving to make the education better such as teachers should be receiving a very good care and pay from the education system.

Man Tugs Tiger’s Tail In SW China

Fearless man pulls tiger’s tail in Southwest China.  I think it’s super dangerous, because powerful animals such as tiger can kill a man easily if the moment presents an opportunity for danger.  Nonetheless, I wonder how the man in the video feels so confident to be around a tiger in such close vicinity.  Now I’m guessing the man is either a zoo keeper which has trained the tiger somehow or he is a pure fool, but a brave one who does not know how to feel danger.  Anyway, it’s kind of cool to see the tiger just let the man pulls on its tail without gnawing the man to pieces.  Check out the video right after the break.  Enjoy!

Chinese Lantern Festival Got One Thousand Drones Lit Up The Night Sky, Celebrating A Rooster Year.

On the day of Chinese New Year’s Lantern Festival in Guangzhou, China (2017), people got to witness 1,000 drones lit up Guangzhou’s night sky with various beautiful colors.  The drones were synched up in different patterns that got purposeful meaning to the Chinese people.  According to Chinese news services, the 1,000 drones performance just set a Guinness World Record since thus far it’s a biggest number of drones in the sky at once.  What is amazing is that none of these drones was crashing into each other, and so the automation of fly patterns for drones is definitely ready for prime time.  Don’t you think the future will be involving with more of drones that behave as if fireworks have gone off in the dark but beautiful night sky?  Perhaps, the prediction of automation will come true in regarding to putting firework business out of business?  In summary, these swarm formations of drone performance might be more fashionable and future proof than firework… but by witnessing how drones got to be so automated is making us worry for our future.  We may worry how futuristic  AI’s automation will put hundreds if not thousands of outdated, typical human jobs and businesses out of service.  If I’m not wrong, I think Chinese Lantern Festival is usually celebrated on the last day of Chinese New Year.  This year is all about the roosters, and so eat more chicken!  Check out the drone synch performance of 1,000 drones in Chinese New Year night sky in the video right after the break.  Enjoy!
