Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

G26ster, You posted: When I'm in Asia I use chopsticks, and when I'm in the West I don't. Wouldn't you be considered more 'exotic' if you used western uensils when in the east? I have some really nice chopsticks here at home, but I use them to dig out the coffee bean grinder after grinding. They wor...

Re: Antifa Violence in Portland, OR

Why doesn't law enforcement step in and stop this nonsense? Wait, I know the answer. A lot of socialist/marxist local governments applaud this type crime while the rank and file L.E.are poltically handcuffed and frustrated, unable to do their jobs without being fired and losing their pensions. Hey, ...

Re: Student with filthy Glock

A few years ago Larry Vickers did a wonderfully, wacky show where he (don't remember the exact details) but I think dunked his rifle or maybe it was a pistol, in a barrel of oil, and then shot it. Removed dripping oil like mad and it was a rather disgusting sight. The he shot it. It worked fine. Is ...

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

Hold it!

Occidental, (not to be confused with orthodontics) is a an oil corporation.

ok, ok, I kid.

Though, I find the term occidental offensive as is my prerogative as another complaining about nothing human bean.

I prefer 'whitey'.

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

philip964, "Which is why I assume Oriental rice is always sticky (that's ok to say right?)" I prefer, long grained, individual rice grain separation, as sticky rice is icky rice as far as texture goes. Back to one of my other questions: Do Asians eschew chop sticks in favor of western utensils when ...

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

oohrah, I assume you are a non-Asian? You are one of the few I've ever heard of using chopsticks as something genuine, whereas, my experience of non-Orientals using them is when, on the relatively infrequent visits (and only) times they find themselves in Oriental eateries, like my erstwhile friends...

Re: Trouble Purchasing Rifle at Walmart

Not me and a few years back I bought (when they still sold them) 2 AR's from my local Walmart. I think if memory serves, I showed them my DL and that was good enough, though I was a CHL holder, but the sight of my DL was adequate. Perhaps, the holdup was a snail paced anti who hoped you'd be discour...

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

philip964, I read the links and from what I can ascertain, folks are tying themselves into PC knots over pretty much zero. Everyone can find something to be offended about, eh? Let's see: Hey, I know I'm offended for being singled out as a 'white guy'. And, and, don't remind me I'm old, that's sexis...

Re: Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

G26ster, Thanks. I looked it up, but sadly didn't see much beyond the information you provided, Oriental being a fine word for things, but not people. I didn't see anything regarding the use of chopsticks vs. knife & fork in Oriental restaurants and western style eateries. "Likely the most people of...

Why Did 'Asian' Replace The Word 'Oriental' & Other Things?

Anyone know? Why is "Oriental" now a verboten word? As far as I know, the word Oriental isn't unkind, so why was it replaced? In the past, when I said Oriental, a few people immediately corrected me with a look of horror - No No No, you must said 'Asian'. Plus, when you (if you're a non-Oriental) ea...
