    It was bound to happen sooner or later since he lived to a wonderful long age, but it's still so sad.
    What are you fighting for? Just mix them into pissing beef balls, stupid.

    This is certainly the most important passing of an Asian pop culture figure in quite a long while. Few have had anything close to the extensive cultural influence that Jin Yong has had for over half a century.

    We do feel sad over these parts but do you weep like JY?

    "when he was writing and later rereading his own works, he often shed tears over his characters' misfortunes. When he wrote that Yang Guo waited in vain for Xiaolongnu till the sunset, he sobbed. When he wrote that Zhang Wuji and Xiaozhao were forced to break up, he wept. Writing that Xiao Feng killed his beloved Azhu because of a misunderstanding, he wept even more sadly".
