    sneezes are not at all adorable, especially when you rapidfire 5+ in quick succession.

    That's the MOST adorable. Then they wipe their nose like a puddy cat and blink a lot.

  6. So some guy in Rio tried to rob Polyana Viana with a fake gun. He thought she would be an easy target because she was a woman on her own, little did he realize she's actually a professional UFC fighter.

    This was the result.

  8. I love it when people get Mandarin tattooed on them thinking it means one thing but it's actually something completely different and they don't realize.

    It gives me great joy when I see the look on their faces after telling them that it doesn't mean what they think it means.

    If you're going to get courage tattooed on you, don't use google to look it up.

    I just don't understand why you'd use a language other than your own, unless there was some deep significance in doing so.

    Weird!

    Ni hao ma.
    Gun in yun.
    Ni gun dachi bi.

    I don't know how to spell them but my best mate in grade 12 was from China.
     
  12. IMO, English calligraphy sucks so I can see the appeal in going for another language (Arabic calligraphy rocks btw, not biased) but if you're getting something permanent in a language you don't understand I'd want at least 3 independent reviews or something haha.

    I agree, but IMHO using another language is a lazy form of symbolism (if you have no personal connection to it). Tattooists are artists, for the most part. Ask them to design something symbolic.

    It kind of reminds of advertising where they lazily just hire a celebrity like Ida Buttrose to talk it up, rather than relying on the quality of the product or the imagination of the marketers.

    Ida Butt-rose... I wonder if her roses smell like poo-poo-pooooo.

    Even though the translation is correct, the grammar isn't even correct. The amount of times I've seen foreigners with Chinese character tattoos that are wrong is surprisingly large. If you are going to get it done, make sure you get a Chinese close friend to give you the correct characters.
