Well, like @tempogain points out, it’s just not how we do it in the US.
Also, a newsflash. The US has done things its own way since forever. No monarchy, citizens given the right to bear firearms, respelling the names of immigrants arriving at Ellis Island, shotguns in the trenches of WWI, jazz music, basketball, rebuilding nations after war, Nashville - it’s a long list (and not really news, I’m sure). Got a feeling we’ll keep using our system until it becomes inconvenient for us, despite what the world sez.

Q: What do you want your tattoo to say?
A: Something great. I don’t know. I can’t speak Chinese.
Edit: to explain tattoo “I don’t know. I can’t speak Chinese”
um, how about translating that for us non-Chinese cunninglinguists… thanks
“I do not know I cannot speak Chinese”
Yeah, neither do I, which is why I hope someone can translate it for us!
(I’m [dad-]joking. I suspect urodocus was doing the same, in hope of burying forumosa in a recursive Who’s-on-fourth loop.)
