    Default Asian TV on Netflix

    The more channels that I have from which to choose,
    and I have lots of both Premium and Streaming channels making my bill horrific,
    I find it harder and harder to find something to watch.

    For the past year, especially after the November elections,
    I've been watching lots of Asian television on Netflix.

    The girls are smoking hot, and if the plot gets boring,
    I can just close my eyes and not understanding any of the dialogue without reading the sub-titles,
    I can at least go comfortably to sleep on my recliner.

    Still, I've noticed a bunch of things.

    Just as it is physically as a nation, Korean television is in the middle--not unlike adding Japanese television and Taiwanese television,
    and then dividing by two. It's somewhere in the middle in every way.

    Of all the pronunciations, Japanese is by far the easiest.
    They use vowels and consonants that among the three, sound much closer to ours.

    When you see their names converted to Western letters,
    they sound pretty much, when they say them, as we would pronounce them ourselves.

    This isn't always the case with Mandarin and Korean. Especially the first names, which of course, are said last for some reason. The surnames are generally easy.

    As for mannerisms, however, the Chinese are by far the most similar to us.
    Less deferential bowing, more like a polite nod, and lots of shaking hands instead. Even a little bit of hugging.

    If the people in Taipei and Hong Kong spoke Japanese instead of Mandarin or Cantonese,
    I think we'd learn it pretty quickly.

    That's your lesson on Asian television for the day.

    Lot's of interest for this one, huh?

    Probably not much need for a non-political room in this house.
    I was just experimenting.

    There are probably 200 different races or tribes who are Orientals and at least that many unique and distinctly different Oriental languages.

    Who knows how many in just the jungles of Borneo?

    It's kind of like one of those- PICK ONE- kind of deals, in terms of determining which one to study or learn!

    I know I'm too stupid to learn any of them! LOL!

    Horseradish?
    It's a good substitute for Tabasco if you like lighter Bloody Marys.
