First of all, that first statement is an overgeneralization. Not every Chinese person is going to be skilled at math of course. It’s ignorant to go into these stereotypes. 

But try this:

4,8,5,3,9,7,6.

Read them out loud to yourself. Now look away, and spend twenty seconds memorizing that sequence before saying them out loud again.

If you speak English, you have about a 50 percent chance of remembering that sequence perfectly If you’re Chinese, though, you’re almost certain to get it right every time. 

Why is this? 

One explanation is because the Chinese language allows them to read numbers faster. 

Chinese number words are remarkably brief. Most of them can be said in less than 1/4th of a second (for instance, 4 is ‘si’ and 7 ‘qi’)

Their English equivalents—”four,” “seven”—are longer: pronouncing them takes about 1/3 of a second. 

The English number system is also VERY illogical. 

For example, right after the word 10, instead of saying one-ten, two-ten, three-ten we have different words like 11,12. 

Not so in China, Japan and Korea. They have a logical counting system. Eleven is ten one. Twelve is ten two. Twenty-four is two ten four, and so on.

That difference means that Asian children learn to count much faster. Four year old Chinese children can count, on average, up to forty. American children, at that age, can only count to fifteen, and don’t reach forty until they’re 5 years old.

The regularity of their number systems also means that Asian children can perform basic functions—like addition—far more easily.

Ask an English seven-year-old to add thirty-seven plus twenty two, in her head, and she has to convert the words to numbers (37 + 22).

 Ask an Asian child to add three-tens-seven and two tens-two, and no translation is necessary.

Huh. That’s really interesting!

This makes so much more sense than the racist bullshit people come up with.

this applied to Thai language as well. 

You should listen how Asian children recite the times table.

fast forward a day later after he made a separate kik account to continue to threaten to post my videos on revenge porn websites, then momentarily apologized for, “attempted” to kill himself, then left me alone (sadly i didnt think to screenshot that whole conversation until after i deleted my kik altogether)

OKAY CONTEXT TIME

This man’s name is Liran Hagay aka droidsect (old tumblr url) aka thelastliran (twitter and kik) aka thelastoneslast (tumblr url before deactivating apparently) aka psylenses (snapchat). He lives in Israel. I had a brief stint as a cam girl and was selling access to my kik and snapchat for private conversations and a password protected blog with nude pictures and videos. Not a wise move on my part as these aren’t secure methods of selling media. I understand that. But I had come to form a sort of tenuous friendship with Liran as he kept talking to me for a month or so. Then, rather out of the blue, he made the first comment up top in the first screenshot. The following argument ensued. He then continued to stalk down my full name, my facebook, my instagram, my skype, the urls of all 4 of my old tumblrs, my boyfriend’s facebook, my boyfriend’s instagram and my boyfriend’s blog. He stole pictures from my blogs and posted them, along with the videos he stole, to a revenge blog by the url of shedeserveditso before I got it terminated. He also threatened to post my pictures,videos and information to popular porn sites. I’m unsure of whether or not he upheld his threat. 

I am not the first girl he’s harassed. 

This is just a small compilation of the creepy messages begging for girls’ kiks. There are PLENTY more. 

This is a screenshot taken directly off of his blog before he deleted. 

Moral of the story: Israeli girls be warned, all other people, DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH THIS FUCK. Let it be known that he is a stalker and a harasser with zero empathy for others. I will answer any questions regarding this post in my ask box.

Thank you.
