shocking to me. apparently, a lot people can't do the “asian squat”. I thought it's just video meme. After watching a few, it's true. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlVNjAEa3Tw Why Asians Can Do The Asian Squat | ASIAN BOSS (한글자막)

i watched Joker in theater. havnt went to movies in 5 or more years

i like to support it politically, but i find it actually dry and boring. It's not superhero movie, no exciting fights etc, rather a drama/psychology film. I like this type, but still, it's kinda dry.

I watched and read lots magic since 90s. In general, no like them. Cuz they are just fake. (of course) tricks/illusions. Of course, if you just see it performed, it's wonder. But after knowing, it's dumbass. Some nerds, are fascinated to learn. But i just see them as silly.

China Made a Hard Scifi Movie, the Wandering Earth

china made a interstellar scifi movie, The Wandering Earth. playing in usa now. seems good reviews.

disappointed by the trailer. It seems, a pop film. pleasing the masses. like, save humanity and help stuff.

this guy wrote The Wandering Earth 刘慈欣 Liu Cixin apparently, scifi novel community in China has risen. Note that, scifi novel WAS not a thing in china, but kungfu.

Liu Cixin (simplified Chinese: 刘慈欣; traditional Chinese: 劉慈欣; pinyin: Liú Cíxīn; born 23 June 1963)[1] is a Chinese science fiction writer.[2] He is a nine-time winner of the Galaxy Award (China's most prestigious literary science fiction award) and winner of the Hugo Award.[3] Liu's work is considered hard science fiction. In English translations of his works, his name is given in the form Cixin Liu.

haha. Guan Yu (year 200 AD) is a historical Chinese character who has become a demigod in Chinese culture. You can often see his statue in temples or people's homes, or in chinese video games, figurines. He's know for his loyalty, courage, and kungfu. https://twitter.com/CarlZha/status/1082931321628835841

Chinese sword, and mixed martial arts with melee weapons?

Chinese sword, has fell out of progress. I think only the Japanese kantana, is still in some practice, and also Western ones in fencing. rapier, saber, foil. i think the making of kantana still progress under today's science. Chinese swords are mostly just in movies and myth.

picture https://twitter.com/yifei_cc/status/1029225390219218945

of one on one fighting techniques, currently mixed martial arts or similar is keeping it up, state of the art. The Chinese kungfu, is now mostly showbiz. It's not to say kungfu wasn't good. But for reasons, it has ceased to be real fighting technique.

today, we still do not have any way that allow us to advance the art of melee weapon 1-on-1 fighting. there is kendo, which is japanese sword sport, and fencing for western. But they are not realistic, and doesn't allow other weapon e.g. axe, lance, or other fancy weapon.

for hand-to-hand combat, mixed martial arts pretty much have told us what is most effective. but for with melee weapons, i don't think we know much. Note, if we do not allow armor, then lean and agile types are likely to always win.

it's hard to come up a way for 1-on-1 melee weapon combat to progress. hard to make it a sport, because even non-shapened sword still do too much damage, or, heavy armor/protection gear would severely limit reality. also, it'd also filter out heavy axe or iron ball.

it'd nice to have StarTrek holodeck. but that's too much scifi.
