Re: (ONLINE) 8/28 (Sat) Your Pastime during Rona (Host: Gavin)

The topic today would be easy for most of us to discuss. We just experienced few months of level 3 COVID alert. Some of us even did WFH for quite a while. Though we're not completely out of the woods yet, the situation is improving day by day. Let's share how has the level 3 alert experiences change...

moot point a point that is unimportant or not worth talking about/debating Ex: The real NBA Finals will be the second-round matchup between Milwaukee and Brooklyn. Arguing over which team will come out of the West is a moot point; whichever team comes out of the Bucks-Nets duel will steamroll all c...

Re: 5/1 (Sat.) Dinosaur judges are around us? /Are you ready to be a judge? (Host: Julia Ho)

Today’s topic is challenging to discuss, to say the least. With little knowledge about the judicial system in Taiwan and not paying much attention to news on controversial verdicts that generated public outrage, it’s hard for me to make decent comments on this topic. Oftentimes when we hear a verdic...

Hey Rock, you made a strong case against the author. I particularly agree with you on the condescending tone, be it subtle or tangible in the eye of the beholder, and the necessity of respecting or at least understanding local cultures. I also can sense the writer's unspoken position that European c...

Re: 4/17 (Sat) Little Big Women (Host: Holly)

If my memory serves me right, YOYO use a particular movie as a topic only once in a blue moon. It’s a refreshing attempt to discuss Taiwanese films, which have come a long and impressive way in recent years. Hopefully it won't take long to discuss next great local film in the future. I haven’t watch...

Re: 3/27(Sat.) The Zeigarnik Effect and Memory(Host: Gloria)

I have some experiences that may have something to do with the Zeigarnik effect; it’s however not clear whether they make a strong case for the effect or instead serve as a counter-example. When I follow Korean TV drama, chances are not low that there are series that start great, luring me into bing...
