Qui Tam? Quidam? La Nuit Recule...

Qui Tam? Quidam? La Nuit Recule...

今天看到這鍋:台灣須要 Qui tam 的法律

Qui tam 是拉丁語, 英語習慣稱之為 "Whistleblower", 意指個人可以向檢查單位檢舉為了國王(國家)也為了他自己,提出Qui tam 的人通常在被檢舉人被判決確定後可拿到巨額的獎金,大約是罰款的15至30%。


想到下面這鍋:

Cirque Du Soleil (Quidam) - Quidam

You world is yours
not mine, Quidam.
Your dreams are yours.
You may have touched the stars
but they weren't moved.

And if you reach for me
I may not choose
to hold your hand.
I might smile
or I might turn away.

An ordinary man, Quidam.
I'm everyman.
I'm anyman.

Quidam, Quidam
la nuit recule.
D'un rêve à l'autre tu valses.
Du creux de toi
c'est bien le mal
qui dresse tes silences.

There's nothing left.

There's nothing right.
There's nothing wrong.
I'm one. I'm two.
I'm all yet none of you.
The truth the lie,
the tear, the laughter,
the hand and the empty touch.
Here I am alone
waiting for the curtain call.

An ordinary man, Quidam.
I'm everyman. T'es l'inconnu.
I'm anyman. T'es l'étranger.

Quidam, Quidam
la nuit recule.
D'un rêve à l'autre tu valses.
Du creux de toi
c'est bien le mal
qui dresse tes silences.

Bailo en este lienzo de dolor.
Funàmbulo sin mapa ni brùjula.
La dulce locura mi sòlo refugio.
Nazco en la sombra del payaso.

Quidam, Quidam
la nuit recule.
D'un rêve à l'autre tu valses.
Du creux de toi
c'est bien le mal
qui dresse tes silences.

Quidam, Quidam
aux rives du rêve.
Au seuil de l'ombre, tu valses.
Autour de toi
c'est bien le mal
qui dresses tes silences.

Quidam, Quidam
la nuit recule.
D'un rêve à l'autre tu valses.
Du creux de toi
c'est bien le mal
qui dresse tes silences.


拉丁語系的不少 t 都可以發 d 的音。

Happy Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah

Lonely Jew on Christmas:

It's hard to be a Jew on Christmas
My Friends won't let me join in any games..
And I can't sing Christmas songs
Or decorate a Christmas tree..
Or leave water out for Rudolph
'cause there's something wrong with me..
My people don't believe in Jesus Christ's divinity..
I'm a Jew, a lonely Jew.. on Christmas.

Hanukkah is nice, but why is it,
That Santa passes over my house every year?
And instead of eating Ham
I have to eat Kosher Latkes..
Instead of Silent Night
I'm singing hey-hach-dol-gavish..
And what the fuck is up
With lighting all these fucking Candles, tell me please?
I'm a Jew, a lonely Jew..
I'd be merry but i'm Hebrew on christmas

Hey Little Boy, I can't help but hear,
You're feeling left out of Christmas Cheer..
But i've come to see that you shouldn't be sad
This is the one month that you shoud be glad..

Because it's nice to be a Jew on Christmas
You don't have to deal with the season at all..
You don't have to be on your best behavior, or give to charity
You don't have to go to grandma's house with your alcoholic family..
And I don't have to sit on some fake Santa's lap
And have him breathe his stinky breath on me!
That's right! You're a Jew, a stylin' Jew..
It's a good time, to be Hebrew.. on Christmas.

Merry Fucking Christmas

Mr. Garrison: I heard there is no Christmas
In the silly Middle East
No trees, no snow, no Santa Claus
They have different religious beliefs

They believe in Muhammad
And not in our holiday
And so every December
I go to the Middle East and say...

"Hey there Mr. Muslim
Merry fucking Christmas
Put down that book the Koran
And hear some holiday wishes.

In case you haven't noticed
It's Jesus's birthday.
So get off your heathen Muslim ass
and fucking celebrate.

There is no holiday season in India I've heard
They don't hang up their stockings
And that is just absurd!

They've never read a Christmas story.
They don't know what Rudolph is about
And that is why in December
I'll go to India and shout...

Hey there Mr. Hinduist
Merry fucking Christmas
Drink eggnog and eat some beef
And pass it to the missus.

In case you haven't noticed

It's Jesus's birthday
So get off your heathen Hindu ass
and fucking celebrate!

Now I heard that in Japan
Everyone just lives in sin
They pray to several gods
And put needles in their skin.

On December 25th
All they do is eat a cake
And that is why I go to Japan
And walk around and say...

Hey there Mr. Shintoist
Merry fucking Christmas
God is going to kick your ass
You infidelic pagan scum.

In case you haven't noticed
There's festive things to do
So lets all rejoice for Jesus
And Merry fucking Christmas to you.

On Christmas day I travel `round the world and say,
Taoists, Krishnas, Buddhists, and all you atheists too,
Merry Fucking Christmas, To You!

(Clapping)

Thank you Mr. hat

Unboxing Tabliving TLTV-E1 Android Miracast 智慧電視棒 (補)開箱文

Unboxing Tabliving TLTV-E1 Android Miracast 智慧電視棒 (補)開箱文

(Ridiculously) humongous packaging./進擊的外包裝



我們的測試工程師在17Life敗的,現在在狗罵雞有賣。其實他敗了已經有兩週了,所以是補開箱分享文,而非正港開箱文。記得有附 micro USB 線,但是分不出哪一條是這鍋附帶的了。還有附一小條雙面膠。

It has been two weeks since this unit's arrival. Hence this article is more about review than unboxing. I remember this unit came with a micro USB cable. However, I am not able to identify exactly which one from my pile of collection. There was also a piece of sticker for attaching the unit to display.
Mini HDMI port and micro USB port. The later can be used as power source or for using the unit as a memory key. This can be a mean for copying multimedia files to the unit.

Mini HDMI 埠與 micro USB 埠。後者可用來做電源線或連結電腦,將電視棒作隨身碟使用:可以將多媒體檔傳到電視棒上。

Standard USB port. Can be used with (wireless) input devices such as keyboard and/or mouse.

標準 USB 埠。可用來連接輸入設備,如:(無線)鍵盤、滑鼠。

總結:低價是唯一的好處。品質與服務都值得懷疑。如果需要服務的話,會有隱私的風險。C/P值不高。

Summary: The only pro is the low cost. Questionable quality and service. Risk of privacy if service required. Low value.

上圖中的 App,如 PPTV, PPS, YouTube 等,都不是預裝,只是空界面。點選後,會進入 Google Play,引導安裝。

號稱4G,但那是總容量,尚需扣除系統、App。實際可用容量約 2G。

Above apps, such as PPTV, PPS, and YouTube are not preloaded. When our tester clicked on them, he was redirected to Google Play for installation.

The specification claims 4G of storage. However, this figure includes the system and apps. Hence the available storage space is about 2G only.

跟他牌比較缺點:
  1. 沒有內建 HDMI 插頭,需自備 mini HDMI 線。
  2. 沒有 micro SD 插槽。無法擴充。

比如說,這鍋看起來就還不錯:7吋多核心Android 4.1 子母畫面平板電腦8G(純規格比較,未經測試。也需自備HDMI線,但規格較高,且具平板功能。)

Cons compared with similar products:
  1. Without male HDMI interface. A mini HDMI cable is required.
  2. No micro SD slot.

缺陷:
  1. 無法安裝 YouTube App:
    安裝時,會被要求安裝 Google 服務。安裝 Google 服務會失敗。
    求助客服,答案是『再安裝完youtube, 系統被要求裝google play時,不用去理會 ,可直接使用。』
    但其實仍無法使用 YouTube App。結果是根本無法使用 YouTube App。最後自己改用瀏覽器直接瀏覽 http://www.youtube.com 解決。
  2. 無法重設系統:
    經由「設定」要恢復原廠設定,重開機後,又都仍舊保留我的設定。
    求助客服,答案是:『一般在設定功能內恢復原廠,系統會尋問所有資料會洗掉,同意才reset (這功能不建議使用),因出廠前有先裝一些中文輸入法等APP.』
    再去信告知不在乎原廠中文輸入,仍堅持希望能重設系統,客服到次日仍未回應。
    再去信催促,告知希望在鑑賞期內解決。
    客服回答:『這問題我們軟體工程師在處理中。如有答案,我們會儘快回覆。如您有疑慮可先辦退貨』
    然後至今尚未得到回應。
    曾經當過業務的換帖說:『這是我們以前委婉拒絕處理的說法。』

Defects:
  1. Failed to install YouTube App:
    Installation failed because the installation of Google Service is a prerequisite.
    The installation of Google Service failed because of user conflict.
    The response of customer service was "Ignore the warning, do not install Google Servide and just use YouTube."
    However, YouTube still fail to run.
    Workaround: use the browser to access http://www.youtube.com.
  2. Cannot reset/restore factory default:
    Even after attempting to restore system to factory default through "setup," the tester's google account and wifi setting stays after reboot.
    The response from customer service was "Because there are preloaded apps, such as Chinese input method, restoring to factory default is not recommended."
    Our tester insisted on resetting, and told the customer service that he care not Chinese input method and other preloaded apps. Then the communication was dead.
    The next day, our tester wrote again, stating that he wished prompt solution of the problem, as there is a 7 day grace period for unconditional refund in Taiwan for online shopping.
    The response from the customer service was "Our software engineer is working on this problem. As soon as we have an answer, we are going to let you know. Meanwhile, you may go ahead with the refund if you have any concern."
    That was the last thing we heard from Tabliving.
    Our ex-sales friend says when he was a salesperson, that was their line for not dealing with the problem.

結論:
  1. 因無法重設系統,所以品質值得疑慮。
  2. 因客服在鑑賞期內都無法提出解決方案,可見服務品質也令人懷疑。
測試工程師說:如果可以重來,絕對不會購買。因無法重設系統,擔心隱私問題,而且反正沒多少錢,所以就不退貨了。

Conclustion:
  1. The quality of the product is questionable, as there is no known method to reset the system.
  2. The quality of the customer service is also questionable, as they are not able to solve the problems even during the 7 day refund grace period.

Our tester decided not to refund, for concern of privacy. Had he known about above facts, he would not have made the purchase.

轉載:撕裂族群的元凶

撕裂族群的元凶

作者:高詩特

一邊一國,阿扁喊得很大聲。但是在台灣最早主張一邊一國的人,不是李登輝,也不是阿扁。而是一個外省人,雷震。雷震主張建立[中華台灣民主國],還主張制定[中華台灣民主國的憲法]。套句現在的流行語就是[正名制憲]。

當然這些主張讓國民黨統治階層聽到挫塞。尤其雷震結合台灣菁英要組黨,更是嚇死外來政權。如果外省人和本省人結合,共同對抗邪惡的國民黨。國民黨還能活嗎?

尤其是外省人,很多是莫名其妙被國民黨帶到台灣的。如果這些人,進入台灣社會,融入台灣。那還得了,簡直就是刨了國民黨的根。

為了防止外省人融入台灣社會,最好的方法當然是隔離政策。眷村就成了最好的方法,用竹籬笆把外省人圈起來,成為一個獨立於台灣社會的化外之地。

今天我們常聽到[眷村文化]。好像眷村文化就是各地料理,除了吃還是吃。卻看不到其他文化面的真相。

小學時候,班上也有外省同學,小孩子畢竟不懂大人的世界。混在一起久了,很自然的也會帶本省同學進入眷村玩。但是總有一些潛規則,像是,哪一家的門前不要去。因為住的是大官,要是吵到他睡午覺。不但會出來罵,連他老爸都會遭殃。

可見眷村裡階級意識高漲,並非如一般左鄰右舍一般。小孩在這種環境下成長,很自然的耳濡目染,照子放亮。誰可以惹,誰不能惹,大家一清二楚。

表面上看起來很有禮貌,見人就是伯伯,叔叔的叫。那是這些人官大惹不起呀!

賭爛在心,還要面帶笑容親切打招呼,也許是在那種階級壓到喘不過氣環境下的生存之道吧!

當然家中的媽媽陪大官夫人打牌消遣也很重要。這是人際關係呀!大人小孩全家總動員,作人際關係。這叫做革命的大家庭。

大家庭中官最大的就是大家長,大家都期待大家長多給點關照。不論是升官,還是調單位找好缺,都需要關照呀!

多多關照!多多關照!這才是眷村文化的精髓呀!

為甚麼關照這麼重要呢?因為竹籬笆裡面的人,根本不知道,融入台灣社會是海闊天空。相反的在竹籬笆內的小天地,機會不多。僧多粥少,當然靠關照就很重要了。

當然為了鞏固國民黨的領導中心。眷村裡面一定要說共匪有多可惡,要不是國民黨帶你們出來,你們早被共匪鬥爭死了。對竹籬笆裡面的人來講,國民黨還真是恩同再造啊!其實會被鬥爭的是那些統治階層高官,而這種恐嚇牌,確實也讓竹籬笆裡的人,嚇得一愣一愣。乖乖聽黨國指示,失去自身主體性,成了國民黨的客體。

不但如此,還在台灣社會製造假想敵。本省人是大日本皇民。是沒文化,沒水準,台灣話就是方言,就是粗話。一方面醜化日本人,連帶醜化台灣人。國民黨真是利害,醜化共匪,醜化日本,醜化台灣,好像國民黨就變美了。

這種醜化下,竹籬笆裡的人還真的覺得自己最美。以為自己很高級,其實這只是一種臭美,因無知產生的幻覺罷了。

於是土台客,沒水準,沒程度,諸如此類的詞,都被外省族群用來評定台灣人。

族群對立,始作俑者就是國民黨,四百年前開始,台灣早就是接受各種族的環境。台灣可以吸納各種文化,但是國民黨的隔離政策,卻讓外省族群無法融入台灣。

因為國民黨權貴很清楚,自己吃甚麼?喝甚麼?如果族群融合了,國民黨在台灣還能活嗎?如果族群融合了,還有人含血,含淚,含恨,含屎投票給國民黨嗎?

國民黨就是撕裂族群的元凶。還有臉罵別人撕裂族群。這就是國民黨的邪惡。

外省人不認同台灣,那也沒辦法,繼續竹籬笆思想,繼續含屎投票吧!

我不會可憐這些籬笆一族,我只會嘲笑籬笆一族。因為可憐之人,必有其可恨之處。這些籬笆族,還不夠格讓我恨!

後記:17世紀荷蘭法律規定,荷蘭人在台灣生的小孩,不能回荷蘭,就是要在台灣落地生根,要認同自己出生的土地就是故鄉。

日治時期在台灣出生的日本人[灣生],被引揚回日本,產生故鄉的認同問題,因語言問題也感到自己是異鄉人,對他而言,標準語的故鄉在台灣,日本卻成了他的流放之地.

面對荷蘭人,日本灣生,外省人二代還無法認同台灣是自己的故鄉的話,還稱中國是內地的話,這種人根本不夠格讓我恨,只能當笑料讓我朝(嘲)笑。


「外省人台灣獨立促進會」已故會長廖中山教授:「如果怕被趕,就好好做台灣人,不要當中國豬。

現在已經不再拒絕招待中國人了,只要認同臺灣
