From Global Voices Online:
I hate all sorts of competition. Since I was a kid I’ve never won anything. As soon as I hear the word competition, I hide. Even a competition in screwing up I might not even win. When I was young I once ran four hundred meters and then gave up.
That’s why I’m not watching the World Cup. If I wanted to watch a bunch of irrational men and women with painted-on monkey faces run around screaming, I’d watch a horror film. If I want to see some studs, there’s Dragon TV‘s ‘Good Guy at Home’ (although I heard some of the men chosen on that show are a little feminine, might as well watch Bai Yansong or Cui Yongyuan); If at midnight I don’t feel like sleeping but drinking some beer, my dad’s cool with that anytime. No need for only once every four years. [Full Text]
