Ok, this has been bugging me for awhile, what is it with the Taiwanese and picking each other up?
For example, I saw a scooter on scooter accident a few years back. The older woman was thrown off her scooter and her leg did a sick twist on the road. Two or three guys rushed over to her and even before asking if she was ok, they jerked her up to her feet.
In Taipei a while back, scooter girl, car, corner…boom. Girl is lying flat on her back. Bystanders try strenuously to sit her up. She does finally and her face is ghostly white, totally drained of blood. She immediately snaps backwards and POW! Head pavement lightsout. :help:
On TV repeatedly, some poor soul is suffering and does the Taiwanese loss of leg strength. They collapse. The family grabs and pulls and pulls them up…again and again.
and this leads to my question…WHY?
Are all things suddenly better at 1.5 meters above sea level? What gives?
