  1. I just finished Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone. I then read the blurbs for the other books in that series (Craft Sequence) only to discover that the main characters don't reappear until book 5. Can I jump ahead to book 5 then go back to books 2~4, or do I need to read them in order of publication?
  2. Laughing at my mate right now who is a die hard Liverpool fan. He has 3 Liverpool players -- Matip, Wijnaldum, and Mane (captain) -- on his fantasy league team, and currently he is sitting at -3 points for the week.
  3. I see that Survivor has another new season and another new thread. I gave up on that show a few years ago, but I never gave up on Amazing Race. It hasn't been cancelled, has it? When will season 30 be broadcasted?
  4. Just watched a documentary called I'll Be Me about Glen Campbell and his battle with Alzheimer's. It's very moving. I almost couldn't finish it. He was highly blessed to have to a wife who is so loving and patient.
  5. From what I can tell, the "Golden Shower Project" is mainly concerned with google, facebook, youtube, and most blog sites. If you downloads torrent, you will only have minor problems.
  6. For me, this part is more embarrassing than the shambolic defensive performance.
  7. My daughter and I watched the new DuckTales. We both had a lot of fun with it.
  8. I'm nervous for the people in Texas who are in the path of that hurricane. Can you imagine depending on Trump and his administration for emergency services and relief?
  9. I can't really add anything beyond @Scott_N's response regarding pollution. I personally wouldn't want to be in Beijing longer than a week. Have you considered working in other Chinese cities? Not knowing the language shouldn't be too big of a problem either. Your employer should have someone on staff who can translate for you. Also, I've found that one can survive fairly well with a paper containing the Chinese names of a few dishes to show wait staff at a restaurant and a few nearby locations to show a cab driver. Also, you might want to read some of the works of Peter Hessler, who has written four books about living and teaching English in China.
  10. I've been teaching English in China since 2005. Currently, I teach at a school in Tianjin, which is only 30 minutes away by high-speed rail. Pollution can be a problem at times. Don't be surprised if the aqi reaches 500 out of 500 for a day or 2. Otherwise, it's a good place to live. Do you have any other specific questions? At what kind of school are you working, a primary/secondary school or a training center (classes are mainly at night and on weekends)?
  11. The fall semester starts on Thursday at my school, so only 2 more days of freedom left.
  12. Recently, I finished Killing Floor (Jack Reacher #1). Currently, I'm halfway through Marc Maron's biography Attempting Normal and 10% into Three Parts Dead (Craft Sequence #1).
  13. @Midnight has been my favorite show for several months now. It is excellent at presenting current events without being overwhelmed by Orange45. Unfortunately, its last show will be August 4th. I'm not sure what I will watch after that humor-wise.
  14. USA is worse than England at PKs.
