Wow! The article is long and the scope and scale it tries to discuss is huge.

This topic makes me wonder a question. I posted thoese English quiz on our LINE group with "good intentions", but maybe it becomes "hell" for some of our mrmbers. I hope people who never ever answer thoese quiz can tell me what they think.

6. What is the road to heaven paved with?

This is a good question. The only answer I can think of is "sincere compliment". What are you guys' answers?
