A Woman in Midlife Who’s Excellent with High-Tech Products

Because she’s NOT afraid of these new-age, high-tech products???  Translated…

My next door neighbor is just as capable and knowing as the younger generations, she is close to sixty years of age, two years ago, because her kids are out of school, she chose to retire, said that she’s worked hard her whole life, now that the kids are grown, she should take herself into unknown territories, to up her quality of life, and, learn something new while she’s still able to.

Since she retired, she’d worn a grin on her face, “you don’t need to be trendy in the way you dress, but, your thoughts and beliefs MUST catch up to the times.”, was her motto.  She’s a high-tech junkie, SmartPhone is a must-have accessory for her, and, she’d learned how to use it on her own, using her phone to upload the photos, to help her company develop their calendars, downloading a photoshop program, checking the train schedules, getting the online receipt checks, downloading music, etc., etc., etc., she’d even used Facebook, LINE, to connect with her friends and families, to post the goings on of her life; and, checking in on Facebook as she’d gone to certain locations is not at all hard for her, she’d even taught me how to calculate within three seconds, the expiration dates of the lotto.

Once, I’d wanted to delete a friend from LINE for good, but I didn’t know how, and, she’d fixed it for me instantaneously, and had me write down the steps she took, in case I will need to do it again in the futures.

She’d even gotten a small photo printer, used her Bluetooth, or NFC, and, she can print out the photographs she’d taken, every now and then, she’d gone out with her friend for lunch or afternoon tea, and she could capture the memories, and she can also pick her favorite pictures and print them all out.

She loved exercising, and keeps her figure really well, she’d gone on hiking trips with her husband often, enjoyed gourmet, and, loved learning new things, to broaden her horizon, and had gone to the Taipei Exhibition Halls to see what’s going on, took up English, and, in her spare time, she’d planted a TON of vegetables in her small patch of land close to her house.

A lot of people who wanted to retire, before they’d left the workforce, they were ill-prepared, didn’t plan, and, they just have a difficult time, adapting to too much time on their hands after they retired, and, this next door lady, she’s living a fulfilled, and enriching retirement, and, she and her husband are closer as ever, it’s very envious to all.

And so, here, we have a woman, who still kept her mind sharp, she’d gotten into all those high-tech products, so she could get connected with the times, and, everything that younger people are doing, she’s doing too, because she didn’t want to be too disconnected with the world, after she got out of the workforce, and, she is able to fulfill her life after retirement too…

Claims of It’s Purely “Friendships”…Dangers of Online Interactions

The warning labels, written by a middle school instructor, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

As the winter vacation is coming on, the writer of this article does NOT emphasize how the kids are not reading enough books, but reminding the adolescents, to have a sense to protect themselves, especially, the school children’s safety online is not to be taken lightly at all.

The students in puberty enjoy making friends online very much, they carry this simplistic mindset to making friends online, but, the “acquaintance” on the other end of the “line” whom the students never met may be danger!

The writer is warning the students, to use that mindset of “nothing can hurt me” or to utilize the “Invincibility Fable” of the teenage years, to meet up with those “acquaintances” from online, the students who are not yet educated by the cruel cold world has NO idea of the dark side of the society.

Especially when those friends who claimed that they’re much older, or extremely handsome, do NOT meet with them, and, are those “friends” from online just looking to make friends, or, do they have, alternative motives, the students need to think it through, then, everything WILL become clearer.

On top of that, even when the students hung out with kids their age, they still must watch out for one’s own safety!  Don’t drink the drinks that are already opened, and, don’t fall to the pressure of your peers, to try out alcohol, or drugs too; knowing when, and how to say “NO”, is an even MORE important lesson that these kids need to learn as teenagers.

And so, the warnings are all lain out for ya, but, will you follow?  Perhaps N-O-T, because as teens, we have that need, that drawn to the dangers, that, is what makes us unstable in the teenage years, and, the influences of our peers, that, is even greater, than all those lessons, all those things to watch out for that our school teachers, or parents, tell us…

An Elderly Version of Tsong-Rui Lee, Raped and Had the Footage of Him Raping on Tape, Eight Women Fell Victim

And you still don’t think that men should get C-A-S-T-R-A-T-E-D???  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

The owner of the designing company, Lin took his female employees to “visit clients”, and he’d spiced up the drinks, and, as he raped them, he recorded the footage, the female assistant Yu (a false name) called the police.  The police followed the leads, and found that there were several files of how Lin’s plans of drugging and raping the women, and there were up to eight victims total; and one of them, a college student was his daughter’s classmate who slept over because they had a project to do together, and the victim had NO clue of what had happened to her.  Lin claimed that it was all consensual, that he was worried that he might get scammed, that was why he’d kept the videos as evidence, but as the police came to his place with a warrant, he’d attempted to destroy physical evidence.  The Shihlin District Attorney’s Office believed that Lin’s behaviors was exactly like that of Tsong-Rui Lee’s, and the man was without remorse, and so, they’d prosecuted him based off of forced sexual assault and asked the judge to show NO leniency.

Lin (age 47) is heavyset and jolly looking, ran an electric company in Taipei.  Yu accused, that last year in August, Lin wanted her to accompany him, he’d drank the chocolate milk handed to her by him, then, felt drowsy.

After Yu came to, she’d questioned Lin, “Why are we in a motel?”  Lin couldn’t tell her why exactly, she suspected that she was drugged and lost her virginity, she’d notified the police for assistance.

The police found sleeping pills, tranquilizers in Lin’s home.  Lin’s wife told them, that Lin picked those up from the doctors, but barely took any pills, as the police came to their residence to search, she’d even asked them, “What’s happened?”

There were so many secret footages Lin shot in his computer, and they were separated based off of the scenarios, “Drugged in the Rooms”, “Falling into Deep Slumber”, “Penetration After the Drugs Kicked In”.  The police found, that other than Yu who was filmed, there were two other female employees, four bar girls from a Japanese-style drinking house, and, the other young woman who was sexually molested by him was his daughter’s classmate.

The bargirl, “Kiki” didn’t even KNOW that she was raped and taped, she angrily told the police, that she started feeling doubtful after she felt drowsy after she’d down the alcohol Lin had provided for her, and once, she’d looked closely, and found that the colors of the drinks are different, then, she’d taken the warnings.

Her daughter’s classmate felt scared and sad.  The young woman told, because she was finishing up her reports, that, was why she’d stayed over in Lin’s residence, and she and his daughter bunked on the floor, and after she was shown the footage, she’d learned of what had happened, that when she was fast asleep, her classmate’s father attacked her breast, “I just want to put it all behind me quickly!”, she’d stated.

And, that still just shows, that you still CAN’T keep a man from raping, just like how you can’t keep a dog from eating ITS shit!  And, this man is already OLD, and yet, his TESTOSTERONE is still raging?  Are you FUCKING kidding me here?

How to Handle Web’s Cruel Side, by: S. Rosenbloom

From The New York Times that came with today’s papers today…

Anyone who has ever been online has witnessed, or been, virtually hurt by, a mean comment.

“If you’re going to be a blogger, if you’re going to tweet stuff, you better develop a tough skin,” said John Suler, a professor of psychology at Rider University in New Jersey who specializes in what he refers to as cyberpsychology.

Some sixty-nine percent of adult social media users in the United States said they “have seen people being mean and cruel to others on social network sites,” according to a 2011 report from the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project.

Posts run the gamut from barbs to sadistic antics by trolls who intentionally strive to distress or provoke.  Whether you’re a celebrity author or a mom with a décor blog, you’re fair game. In the virtual world, anonymity and invisibility help us feel uninhibited.  Some people are inspired to behave with greater kindness; others unleash their dark side.  The singular goal of trolls is to elicit pain.  But those comments, while nasty, present an opportunity to learn something about ourselves.

Social scientists say we tend to fixate on the negative.  Correcting that tendency requires understanding that you are ultimately in charge.  “Nobody makes you feel anything,” Professor Suler said.  The key is managing what psychologist refer to as involuntary attention.

Just as our attention naturally gravitates to loud noises, our minds fixate on negative feedback.  Studies like “Bad is Stronger than Good,” published in 2011 in the Review of General Psychology, have shown that we respond more strongly to bad experiences and criticism, and that we remember them more vividly.  “These are things that stick in our brain,” said James O. Pawelski of the University of Pennsylvania.  “If we allow our attention to move involuntarily, that’s where it goes.”

The mind, however, can be tamed.  One way is to ask yourself if those barbs you can’t seen to shrug off have an element of truth.  If the answer is yes, Professor Suler has some advice: let your critics be your gurus.

“You can treat them as an opportunity,” he said.  Ask yourself why you’re ruminating on a comment.  “Why does it bother you?”  Professor Suler said.  “What insecurities are being activated in you?”

Perhaps a negative comment can help you learn something about yourself.

“It’s easy to feel emotionally attacked from these things,” said Bob Pozen, a lecturer at the Harvard Business School.  He said that doesn’t mean that your critics don’t have a point.

But it’s not always possible to learn something from a nasty comment.  Some are baseless; some are crass.  One way to help is to consider the writer’s motivation.

Professor Suler wrote in 2004 in the Journal Cyber Psychology & Behavior about a concept known as “the online disinhibition effect”—the idea that “people say and do things in cyberspace that they wouldn’t ordinarily say or do in the face-to-face world.”  The result can be benign (“unusual acts of kindness and generosity”) or it can be toxic: “rude language, harsh criticisms, anger, hatred, even threats,” Professor Suler said.

The latter is the realm of trolls.  If people keep this concept in mind, he said, “they will see the psychology” of the aggressors, and their comments may be easier to take—and possibly ignore.

Harsh comments can also be made to feel less potent by disputing to yourself what was said.  If, for example, someone writes, “You’re an idiot and no one likes you,” you can marshal evidence against it by reminding yourself of the obvious: You have an education, a good job, many friends.

Also, be mindful when you choose to glance at your blog or social media feeds.  In other words: Stay off Twitter if you just bombed a presentation.

Another way to stop yourself from dwelling negative feedback is to enter into what psychologists refer to as “flow”, a state in which the mind is completely engaged.  Flow can be achieved when playing a piano concerto, practicing karate, being deep in conversation with a friend.  “The toughest time is when the mind is not fully occupied,” said Professor Pawleski, who also prescribed humor as a way to deflect barbs.

Even when a person is alone, humor can be very effective.  Try reading nasty comments aloud in a goofy voice, Professor Pawelski advised, so that when your mind automatically plays back the comment it sounds absurd.

And what if you shared a couple of the good ones with friends instead of sharing the ones that hurt you?  Research shows that it takes more time for positive experiences to become lodged in our long-term memory, so it’s not just pleasurable to dwell on a compliment—it’s shrewd.

“We’re really bad, typically, as a culture about accepting compliments,” Professor Pawelski said.  “They’re meant to be taken in and really appreciated.  They’re meant to be gifts.”

And, this would eventually BE maladaptive because?  Oh yeah, it trains your mind, to DODGE every single BAD experiences in your lives, and, IF you can FACE up to the negativities in your own lives, how can you expect yourselves to be well-adapted, plus, if someone leaves a negative “note” on your weblogs, or Facebook accounts or whatever, just ignore it, and, the article is written for those without a STRONG sense of the self, meaning that those who are affected by the outside world’s opinions of them are still WAY too external (Locus of Control, anyone???), so, take THAT, Professor!  No offense, but this, is how the Q-U-E-E-N (still H-E-R-E!!!) views thing, and yes, everybody IS still entitled to her/his O-P-I-N-I-O-N-S, as this article was written, as someone’s view on the matter, and, we ALL KNOW how we should handle the differences of opinions already, don’t we?  WE R-E-S-P-E-C-T each other even IF we don’t agree with one another!

Using Gaming Tokens as a “Bait”, He Was Suspected of Raping Over Ten Young Boys

Enticing someone who’s unsuspecting, the BAD behaviors of an ADULT, from the Newspapers, translated…

An eight-year-old boy in the city of Taipei was suspected of being too caught up in playing the online games, in a single month, he had been taken away by a man named Tseng, who used virtual coins as “bait”, and had had sex with him EIGHT times.  The police had also found photos of the child’s pubic area, and they suspected that there may have been over ten victims.

Tseng, as he was brought in to the police station, stated, that back when he was in the second year of middle school, he was raped by a former classmate, and couldn’t get out of the shadows ever since, that, was what got him interested in little boys and he’d started sexually molesting them.

“If you take shots of your own winkies, then, I’ll give you fifty gold coins!”, the man, Tseng (age 27), in Yonghe, through the online game, “Time Hunter”, chatted it up with an eight-year-old boy, and used “virtual coins” to tempt the child to have sex with him.

After the little boy agreed, they’d met up in the public restrooms of the Dongmen MRT station, other than giving the young child fellatios, he’d even asked the child to pee inside of his mouth; in order to get the boy to come out again, other than paying the virtual gold coins to the child, Tseng had even given the child anywhere from $50 to $300 N.T.s each time.

In the middle of August, the child’s mother found that he’d been emotionally unstable a lot, and would get scared when he saw others, and asked the child’s sister to go online to check, to see if the online games are affecting her son.

As the older sister logged online, Tseng mistakenly thought that it was the eight-year-old who was logged on, and asked him to send him photos of his own penis; the older sister reacted very quickly, immediately asked him, “Why don’t you send me your shots first?”, and, after Tseng sent the photos of his own penis, the older sister and the mother immediately took it in as evidence, and went to the police.

Tseng after getting caught by the police, admitted to having raped the child, and claimed, that back when he was a second year middle school student, he was bullied by his classmates, that, was what caused him to act out like this.

Based off of understanding, Tseng had NO priors, after he graduated college, he started working in the computer industry, the police found a TON of photos of little boys’ pubic areas on his laptop, and they estimated that there were at LEAST ten victims.  After he was interrogated, the Yonghe Subprecinct took him into custody based off of obstruction of sexual freedom.

So, if what the loser said was true, then, that just shows you, how easily abuse can pass from one person to another, and, because this man was picked on (or so he’d told) back in middle school, and now, he’d become a sexual predator, and that, is the general development of these kinds of incidences.

Selfies with Your Tops Off

This, is for ALL you L-O-S-E-R-S AND BITCHES out there, and NO, that still does NOT “constitute” as “name-calling” either…

You ALL know what “selfies” are, so, there’s NO need to explain that!!!  And now, those guys, you know, members of MY opposite sex???  They’re taking photos of themselves with their TOPS off, showing off their pecs or whatever it is that they’re trying to prove, the HELL should I know!

Selfies with your tops off, is that really necessary?  And, hadn’t we seen enough N-U-D-I-T-Y already on this WWW world of ours?  So why the HELL do you losers feel compelled, to take your tops off, is it to make yourselves MORE appealing to us ladies?

Well, there’s something ELSE you may have neglected to notice there, DUMB-ASSES (no, still does NOT constitute as name-calling!!!), we women may be easy on the eyes, but a LOT of us are still HARD as HELL on the hearts, and, we do NOT judge a LOSER, based off of the size of ITS (b/c you ALL had been “downgraded” by me already???) pecs, thighs, chest, or whatever, so, please, DO refrain yourselves, from showing off your bodies, and, that, is O-N-L-Y on the T-O-P, and, don’t get ME started on the BOTTOM now, ‘k???  Yeah, uh-huh, uh-huh (looking down at my watch), I’m afraid, that time is UP for this current “session”, feel free, to VISIT me again, but, DO schedule an appointment with MY secretaries, Ms. B(eelzebub), Ms. S(atan), OR Ms. L(ucifer) outside MY office!

And no, it still does NOT turn us ALL on, seeing you, losers, flashing yourselves, and ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, do you know how D-I-S-G-U-S-T-I-N-G it would be, whenever you turn on your computer and you’re BOMBARDED with someone’s NAKED bodies?  Imagine yourselves in MY shoes now, and, don’t just walk that god DAMN miracle mile either…

Getting the Maximum Exposures

And no, we’re still NOT a group of voyeurs, flashers, or WHATEVER!!!

I’m getting the MAXIMUM exposures, because people are kind enough, to pass ME around, and, I don’t mind, because nothing on here IS copyrighted, as it is MY goal, to make my stuff, available to ALL who are willing to come to my lecture hall here online.

Getting the maximum exposures is what I needed, because my daddy (see, it still goes back into the childhood years!!!) didn’t pay ENOUGH attention to me as I was growing up, and, every time he’d ever paid ME the attention was when I’d dropped my panties (yeah right!!!), and so, I’d learned, to interact with other men, using what I’d picked up on in my early childhood years.

Getting the maximum exposures, because I CAN, because I NOW have the spotlight on me, and I’m still NOT caught on fire like those ants which that little boy is using the magnifying glass is watching, on a HOT summer’s day!

Getting the maximum exposures, because I have this need, to MAKE my point, to BRING about awareness, of ALL the BULLSHITS that’s currently happening in this world, and that, would be my life as a M-U-C-K-R-A-K-E-R here…
