In China conversation, between strangers after introduction, is always opened by the question, “And how old are YOU?" This strikes me as singularly apt and sensible. Here is the one thing that is common ground between any two people, high or low, rich or poor–how far are you on your pilgrimage in life?
Ah... :!: But you forget that in Asia, the older you are the more respect you can command - almost immediately. Old(er) age is so much more revered here than in the West.

This goes so far as to, when the big noodle is speaking (and I don't necessarily mean "giving a speech"), then everybody else has to STFU. That's considered completely normal, no matter what the big noodle is actually talking about (can be any type of garbage really, you're not allowed to voice opposition). You get extra points for nodding at appropriate points, and if you want to really suck up, you should take notes (I'm serious, I've seen that in Japan!).

It's a very fine hierarchy here, with a lot of (not always very explicit) implications: The younger one pays respects, the older one for dinner. :D
Cheers,

One opening-recording-mumble and a pair of bloopers from a recent recording session. Hopefully the space between each will make them easy to distinguish.

It's just a plane. There's no way my new microphone could possibly pick up... oh. :?

Wow - no bloopers in almost a month?

Here's my latest. The project is one on which each devotional is on a new web page. The page loaded very slowly tonight. :)

well .... this is my first ever blooper. I've made tons of course but never thought to save them. From Skylark of Space. just a tiny one of course, but for some reason this slip made me laugh.

This is funny, even if I did it myself. From the dreadful prose of E.E.Smith.

the clicks are me clicking my tongue to tell me to erase what is in front as a boo-boo.
Just ignore them.

Very funny...and isn't it amazing how easily the word comes once you get it right? :P
