Father Hires In-Game “Hitmen” To Deter Son From Playing

Quote:
Sick and tired of his son playing video games and not listening to him, a father in China decided to take matters into his own hands... well, sort of. Instead of sending his son off to addiction camp or stripping him of internet and gaming rights, Mr. Feng (冯先生) chose to hire an online "hitman" to school his son.

Feng's 23 year-old son, "Xiao Feng" (小冯) started playing video games in high school. Through his years of playing various online games, he supposedly thought himself a master of Chinese online role playing games. According to his father, Xiao Feng had terrible grades in school because of his gaming habit; he couldn't even land a job. He, however, says he simply couldn't find any work that he liked. Feng was annoyed that his son couldn't even tough it out for three months at a software development company.

There are very serious errors in that article. Author Eric Jou demonstrated blatant disregard for accuracy by twisting the story to serve his agenda.

Quote:
23岁的小冯从初中就开始接触网页小游戏,上了高中后,他开始和班里的同学一起玩网络游戏,对于游戏,小冯 很有天赋,很快就成了朋友圈里的"游戏达人"。 但由于学习成绩一直不错,游戏也是闲了玩,家人并没在意,最近,工作不如意,钻在家里玩游戏,不想老爸"想 多了",以为他沉溺游戏,竟雇人"对付”自己,让自己一下成了"游戏菜鸟"。

Twenty-three-year-old Feng had been playing simple Web-based games since junior high school. From high school, he and his classmates started playing online games together. Feng proved talented, and quickly became the top player among his friends.

Because his grades had always been not bad, and also because he was playing during his spare time, Feng's parents did not mind his gaming habit. However, due to his recent problems at work, Feng buried himself at home playing games. Little did he realise that this would cause his father to "worry excessively". Thinking that his son had become addicted to games, the elder Feng actually hired hitmen to "tackle" his son online, effectively turning Feng into a "gaming rookie" once more.

小冯的父亲说:"我想着这样一来,他或许就会对游戏失去兴趣,从而把注意力转移到找工作上。"

听父亲这么说,小冯关了电脑,一直以来,简历倒是投了不少,面试的公司也去了好几家,之前也在一家软件开发 公司上过三个月的班,但工作并不顺心,"那不是我想做的,对我也没有多大的发展空间。"小冯认 真地说。

至于窝在家里玩游戏,小冯表示,不是非玩不可,实在是没找上合适的工作,没事玩玩罢了。

The elder Feng said: "I thought by doing this, my son may lose interest in games, and therefore turn his focus back to looking for a job."

Upon hearing his father's words, Feng shut down his computer. Since then, he had submitted quite a few resumes and had been interviewed by quite a number of companies. Before his gaming streak, Feng had worked in a software company for about three months. But he disliked the job. He said seriously: "It wasn't what I wanted to do, and it didn't offer me a great deal of career prospects."

"其实,遇上这事,只是觉得奇怪,也没想到玩了几天游戏,竟让老爸误会了。工作,我是不想将就,想多给自己 一点时间,找一个适合自己的。游戏真的是可玩可不玩。"听小冯这么说,冯先生才放下心来。

"Actually, to become a target of online hitmen felt a bit strange. I didn't expect that playing online games for a few days would cause my father to misunderstand me. When it comes to my career, I don't want to just make do. I want to give myself a bit more time, to find a job that suits me. I can really stop gaming at any time," said Feng. His father is relieved to hear this.

I think Reuters is 10-15 years late with this article. The last time I read about this was from an encyclopedia in the late 1990s.

Sundan was the single largest exporter worldwide, but they now only account for much less than what they did in the 1970s.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

That would fit the TV analogy "if you haven't see this before, than it is new to you"! they do during reruns.

And that's why Kotaku is not only worthless as a news source but actually damaging to use as a news source. Its the anime/pop version of "World Weekly News" as steered by the Bat Boy.

Not serious, misleading, disinformation, etc.

Cat caught sneaking saw, phone into Brazil prison:

"A cat carrying a saw and a mobile phone was "detained" as it entered a prison
gate in northeast Brazil, Brazilian media reported on Saturday.

Prison guards were surprised when they saw a white cat crossing the main gate
of the prison, its body wrapped with tape. A closer look showed the feline also
carried drills, an earphone, a memory card, batteries and a phone charger."

At least on Kotaku you aren't bombarded with pseudo-porn/hentai all along the side of the screen.

If there weren't I wouldn't bother with Sankaku most of the time.

Whatever. Kotaku and Shitkaku are sensationalist bigoted sites that do nothing except trying to attract web traffic for advertising moolah by putting out "Bizarre Japan" and "Freakish China" articles for the gullible.

I avoid them like the plague.

I didn't think Kotaku was that bad, but Sankaku on the other hand... I used to go on there until I realized how biased and yes, sensationalist it was. But, what the heck, it's an otaku's haven, so people would go there just for "Japan" or the boobs... and butts.... and more.

NSFW Sankaku : Toyota “Will Sell” Char Aznable Gundam Auris



I wish I wasn't taking my degree so I can afford a driving license. And a car.

P.S It looks like the car of someone Joker and I know IRL.
