The Sky of Gene: 台灣的國際觀困境

當川普當選已成事實,__就是義務。這是個填空題。在美國,原本種族歧視是個大家避而不談的話題,雖然大家都心知肚明白人歧視有色人種,可是政客如果不小心吐實,還是很可能會葬送前途,只有川普敢大喇喇地發表種族歧視言論,然後在輸了兩百萬普選票的情況下當選美國總統。 川普能夠在不少民主黨原本穩操勝券的州逆轉勝,一個很大的原因可能在於他的誠實,敢白目地說出許多中下階層白人的心聲,把老百姓心中敢想卻不敢講的話,在選戰時爆出。台灣種族問題沒美國那麼嚴重,可是也偶爾爆出歧視東南亞移工的新聞,然後就會有鍵盤

無聊的超讚價值

The Sky of Gene: 台灣的國際觀困境

現在還沒上幼稚園的小朋友,都會用智慧手機了吧?即使是我們這種有點年紀的人,經歷過沒有手機的大學,然後是智障手機的研究所,都已難以想像沒智慧手機可把玩的日子是如何過得下去了。 某個程度上來說,智慧手機應該解決了不少社會問題吧,因為那些花在滑手機的時間,如果是用在爭吵、打鬧,很難說會比較好。可是,用滑手機來逃避現實,恐怕也只是把面對問題的時間延後,很多家人或情侶在餐桌上,都盯著手機在滑,看來只是增加對彼此的厭惡。 更糟糕的是,如果手機沒電了,在搭車、等人、排隊時的時間還真不知如何打發,更
