    There very much is one to listen to. Confucius has the longest recorded family tree in the world. It looks like at least twice though that a main line decendant had to adopt a nephew from one of his brothers to keep the line going.
    A certain estranged former "friend" of mine would be very [sarcasm]happy[/sarcasm] to know that there are still descendants of Confucius around.

    The original video made me laugh. It was like a typical Northern guy having a casual conversation. Did he forget he is on TV?

    Many ppl say these things, in private. When one is a recognizable figure and says it on a talk show that millions watch, that gets noticed.

    It was a fantastic series...one of TVB's best.

    That said, it was unkind to mainlanders...and non-Hong Kongers in general. There seemed to be an underlying message of "raised in Hong Kong = good; raised anywhere else = not so good."

    I like the most recent comment from that video, where the guy said He don't think the english subtitle is accurate lol.





    I'm not mandarin literate so yeah I'll be completely dumbfounded too if there were no english subtitle.

    RE: Confucius descent. The implication of this connection is that the professor has some sort of 'extra' authority because he is descended from a smart/wise chap? Cognitive and/or stirling personality traits are concretely inheritable? Given, in a extremely hypothetical case, that Mr Prof was blessed with traits of the elite literati of imperial China, one would think his arguments would be a tad more subtle and intelligent. Which was obviously not the case.

    The main drive of his argument is based on personal - explicitly biased - views. To reduce to name-calling just totally discredits his own contention. The latter tactic only reflects how ignorant and extremely unknowledgeable he is. If he truly believed his own point, he would make an effort to build a convincing argument. At least it shows you care for your own view. My conclusion is that he really doesn't care nor believes in his own view. The only thing that delights him seems his own voice.

    But yeah, being a person of authority doesn't necessarily demonstrate good judgement nor maturity. Linus Pauling (double Nobel laureate) explicitly slandered Dan Shechtman (winner of 2011 Nobel prize for Chemistry) for his work with quasicrystals. Once again, name-calling was used as an argumentative vice.

    The really sad thing: attaining substantial academic achievement doesn't seem to improve argumentative skills nor maturity for some individiuals.
