No matter how I zoom in or open in a new tab, I can't get the lettering big enough to read. Hope someone can help me out here.

Thanks for the link. Good one.
I have conversations like this all the time, even with people who aren't my parents. Either they're not really listening or they are trying to second-guess me.

Do Chinese people answer a question with a question, too? I know this woman who no matter whoy you're talking to, if you ask a question will break into the conversation with "Why do you ask?"

Does it occur to her that a) I'm not talking to her and b) I ask questions to get information?
Apparently not.
