The independent front page also has a great infograph:

Funny: Typo hunt across America

Jeff Deck(an english teacher), and his friends at the Typo Eradication Advancement League (Teal), are spending three months driving from San Francisco, California, to Somerville, Massachusetts, on a mission to correct every misspelled, poorly punctuated, sloppily phrased item of signage they encounter en route.

Here is an example:

It is the difference between pipe dreamer and go-getter - passion and rationale.

People with great passion think of an idea and act, no matter how silly other think. The passion is not come from void, it is based on a firm and logical rationale, backed with a great confidence.


Yes, you are right, I think it is also the culture difference between western and HK.

Teenagers like those in golden forum only have the nerves to say, but no action.

Slacker paradise: The Nappak


Have been reading your blog for years. Good stuff!! For a little advise, where to buy 中國工業發展 in HK??
As this kind of topic is not so popular, you will not be able to find in HK, but there are plenty in SZ.

Actaully there are some similar thing in 中国国情报告, this a look if interested.
Hey Anoymous,

Have you checked the site out? Do you find it useful?

Actually how come you are interested in such boring and data cruching thing?

I am in manufacturing, how about you?
