There is, perhaps, another version of Clarke’s Third Law (“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”) which is this:

  • Any sufficiently intelligent and profound pronouncement is indistinguishable from hogwash.

Borges was one scary smart guy, IMO.

TT stands for Taipei Times. @Belgian_Pie is quoting a remark from the comments section of a Taipei Times article published on October 3 of last year. WHAT’S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LINK IS NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK OR MIXED COMPANY :nsfw:.

It’s on the list:
Top Teacher?
Trump Touter?
Tranny-tato?
Taipei Times?

I’m pretty sure the TAIWAN NUMBA ONE and the CHINA NUMBA 19 parts are inspired by an exchange from an online game that was captured in a video a few years ago (again, :nsfw:):

Except that in the video I think it’s CHINA NUMBA 4.
