Who thinks up the various “ranks” (e.g. Chinese Class Dropout, Breakfast Store Laoban, High School Triad Member) that one attains here in Forumosa? The reason I ask is I think they are quite clever and make an interesting reflection of Taiwan.
Is there a complete list anywhere or like the degrees in Freemasonry only the Grand Masters of the Lodge know all the ranks? The reason I ask that is that I might do an essay/chapter in my book on the Taiwan Types and that list (with due credit to the folks who made it up) would be great.
