Premium Member Half Baked Scholar
Representation of thoughts
Is now in demand
By the so-called scholars
Intelligent in nothing particular.

To debate is their skill
With no proper evidence
Just to brag and brag so hard
In the end, to shout for the win.

This is the condition
Of this fellow intellectuals

The representation of the leg

Premium Member A Sweet After Taste

Trying to recapture a time in history
is like trying to slow the flow of a river
with nothing but your hands

A chopstick is just a utensil.
But a chopstick can
trigger that
uncontrollable laughter
and smiles at the dinner table.
When one snaps, we chuckle.
When someone can’t use them properly,
we giggle.
When someone eats with them,
we ridicule.

Chopsticks are an icon of Asia.
They’re an art,
they’re part of
history...Read More
