What are your thoughts on it? Do you care? Has it affected you at all?

I know a lot of people are probably sick of hearing about it by now, but I thought it'd be interesting to get TC's point of view on it and see what you guy's think.

the qipao is based on manchu clothings so it's not actually han chinese. han chinese were cucked to the HIGH HEAVEN by the BIG MANCHU COCK that they no longer wear their traditional clothing. The MANCHU forced the han chinese to wear MANCHU clothing for 250+ years totally destroying their brain. And don't forget the pig tail queue that han chinese were forced to have. Complete and utter submission to BIG MANCHU COCK.

That is why Chinese today are subhuman scum. They've been completely BROKEN by numerous BIG NOMAD COCK that whatever shred of culture and decency is lost and the current CHINESE are soulless insectoid people with the only goal of becoming nouveau RICHE materialist PROFIT at any COST! SCAM SCAM LIE LIE CHEAT CHEAT that is all that they know now.

Maybe i'd be more receptive if you didn't rave in all caps about Manchu cock? I've been to China. I've talked with Chinese people born here and there. For their many faults, you can do a lot worse than them. At least they're half-way functional unlike Greeks, Serbs and Moldavians. I also don't care about if some specific piece of their culture comes from Hans or a nomadic war-obsessed people. A lot of your critisms of their character can be attributed to Japanese people too, which was my problem with your post.

Made in Japan > Made in China

Never in all my dealings with asiatic people have I ever been scammed or lied to more than the Chinese.

>Hans or a nomadic war-obsessed people
Odd of you to single out nomadic people as war-obsessed. If anyone knows a shred of Chinese history then they should know that Chinese were very obsessed with conquering and warring against other asiatic people living in mainland china. All of the past chinese empire can't grow big without conquering others.

What assumption? What are you assuming I was insinuating? Crazy people always think everything has a double meaning. So paranoid and jittery. Let me spell it out nice and clear for you: Chinese people are not the worst of the worst. Them being collectivist or "insect-like" or having been invaded a lot has nothing to do with their greedy and dishonest behavior.

Oh yes! Just IGNORE all the countless CHINESE expansion across ASIA killing local natives! MONGOLS THOUGH! Don't forget that the Chinese also lead numerous campaigns into Mongolia long before the Mongols united the tribes. They tried to pacify Mongolia but failed.

Amerimemes. These are decent nations. Your previous complaints about the Balkans being dirty have been noted. Curiously none of these supposedly "unhygienic" places are notorious for being a hotbed for deadly diseases. Unlike China.
Another fun fact about Moldova: it doesn't have a booming holocaust industry. Unlike China.

>vendetta against Moldova
I am Moldavian. Both of my parents grew up in Chișinău(their captial). I've visted my grandmother there. Streets covered in bird shit, their national library, the one in their capital city, doesn't have soap in the bathrooms. I've also been to Beijing, walked around in it for hours, even some back alleys. I know somebody who's been to some of China's smaller cities. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, Moldova is the far worse shit hole and has a government that's shamelessly corrupt and incompetent in its own right.

Look anon im gonna stop posting because the admin and im guessing the other posters here,dont like that shit.I have travelled all over the world including the balkans and asia.Moldova is a poor country allright , but you cant seriously suggest that China is some hot shit.You saw Beijing and got blinded by the new skyscrapers and the money flowing everywhere but thats not the case everywhere.There are regions in china,both along the coastal cities and inland that make the balkans look like utopia.
The other poster that started sperging about the chinese was rude but he had a point.While eurocucks and burgers have mountains of legislation and health regulations,because they know the dangers,the chinese in the name of competition have literally disregarded everything, and now they, along with everybody else are reaping the rewards.
There are very serious reasons for implementing such measures at the expense of productivity and profit, but not for the chinese.No,gotta make that cash man,gotta be competitive.Guess what,now its time to pay the extra cost for that cheap price tag.
I m not gonna blame everybody there,because i have met a lot of chinese that were actually bros and pretty decent, but guess what: it doesnt matter.Their opinions are irrelevant.
Now as far the corruption charges go, are you even serious?Do you even know what is going on there?
They poisoned their own children for some quick cash ffs.
Seems to me like you took a walk in the capital,everything seemed perfect and then you went ahead and started bashing everyone and calling other countries shitholes because they dont sacrifice everything for quick profit.
Chill out a little and try to be a tiny bit more objective.Dont idolize them so much.

>The other poster that started sperging about the chinese
That's the only thing I had a problem with. I don't idiolize the Chinese by any means and what I saw in Beijing was far from perfect. I could go on and on about all thing things I dislike about them and their government, but I don't see the point and I don't think they need to be genocided or that wearing Manchu dresses melted their brains. I can't understand how a person can seriously write that kind of stuff. As for Moldova, I just used them as an example based on my personal knowledge of their ineptitude.

I ended up getting shares with the Corona money. I invested $2000 in long term shares but then I also allowed $2000 for short term trading.

The short term trading has actually given me an idea. It's early days but so far I have been able to make about $100 a fortnight with $2000, so then in theory if I had $10,000 I could make $500 a fortnight and I could live of that. This seems to good to be true though, it's possible that it's only so easy now because the market is rising from a crash.

>it's possible that it's only so easy now because the market is rising from a crash.
That's exactly what it is. This happens every time something big happens. I've invested just over $9,000 myself just after the covid crash, and at the moment those investments are worth $17,500. Yesterday my dad was telling me about how right after 9/11, he invested heavily into the stock market and made $80,000 in profit from it. Plenty of people did the same in 2008. Where some people see disaster, others see opportunity. That said, The second covid wave could very well likely cause another dip in the market. We'll just have to see what happens.

And here I am with only $200 invested. Fuck.
>> No. 35214 [Edit]

With the right stocks, you could double, triple, or even quadrupedal that. Sadly it's easier to make money when you already have lots of it to spare. For instance, amazon went up $500 a share in the last couple months, but it was already at $2000 before this started so there was a large barrier of entry there. Meanwhile something like macy's was down under $5 a share, and is now up to almost $10. Buying into that could have essentially doubled one's returns.

I know that's the case for the long term investments. My short term trading has been buying stocks when they dip and then selling them a week or so later when they rise. In theory I should always be able to do this only now it's almost guaranteed that if I buy in a dip they will rise in not long so it's probably easier.

If I could have a more passive form of income, i'd like to get royalties for something. With stocks, that's not money you can just use. You have to think about it and manage it and decide whether or not you should sell it before that money can actually be useful to you. Just a regular check in the mail of worry-free, ready to use money would be the best.

You get dividends from shares.
>> No. 35222 [Edit]
>>35221
>>35212 here. That's what I mainly invested in. With what I got I would be getting just over $1200 a year, or a hundred dollars a month, but they cut dividends on most stocks that took heavy hits. That $1200 turned into $300 for the time being. Of course once things recover it's possible they might reinstate the dividends. It's worth noting that you're not going to get a huge return from dividends unless you dump truck tons of cash into the market. In order to get the amount of money from dividends to live off of, you'd need an amount of money you could probably live off of anyway. That said, I found that macys was paying something like 0.30 a quarter before covid, so when it dropped to under $5, I estimated that whatever you invest would be returned in 3 years time via those divs, making this one of the more appealing stocks to me.

I have money (something like 18000$ more or less) but I don't have a minimal financial education or even know basic math. I feel like I would lose everything in a matter of seconds if I tried to invest so I'm stuck at living like a monk to have some money but it's value decreases wih time anyway, and in the next months I'm afraid inflation will eat everything I have taken painful years to accumulate.
These last posts made feel kinda stupid. I guess there's a reason why smart people are rich and dumb people are poor.

I have heard that US stocks pay less dividends on average than other markets and focus more on growth, not sure I can confirm it or to what degree though.

>>35223
It's not that complex, you just need to know basic addition, subtraction and how to calculate percentages. Or you can just invest in a few safe companies and leave it.

Sounds like a good thing if you manage to get the timing right. However with the current conditions it seems very risky. It's hard to tell when the market will crash again.

I'm >>34582 and the extra time I gained from not having to commute to work every day, combined with the reduction of stress due to not having to interact with people face-to-face on a daily basis, has done me a lot of good. I've lost 5 kilograms of excess weight, I'm back on track with my calisthenics training, have written the biggest computer programs I ever wrote, and I learned how to juggle three balls. I also saved a lot of money because I would often buy take-out food on my way to work, now I cook everything myself at home.

For all I care, we could do this lockdown thing every year, maybe during the 40 days of lent before Easter. It's not like regular flu pandemics are much less dangerous than 2019-nCoV ultimately turned out to be, there were flu outbreaks in the early 90's that were about equally severe.

Interesting though that mass-gatherings have suddenly become okay again over the past couple of days, so long as you use the mass-gathering to express your hatred towards White people. Really shows you where the priorities of our politicians and media bosses lie.
