So you mean to tell me these people don’t get no fucking CHOCOLATE?!

Welcome to the world of cash crops and triangle trades.  You can’t eat the stuff you grow/pick, you have to pay to have it re-imported back into your country, and you probably can’t afford it even then.

so there’s a pigeon i used to pass by in my old neighborhood all the time and he was really fat because people would just toss him food and literally he sat in the middle of the sidewalk and people would just step over him, he wouldn’t even flinch. seriously you could sit down next to him and just feed him and he would be chill.
he was there every day and all us locals would affectionately refer to him as ‘lard-ass’

Anecdotes by medical practitioners 

"A woman came in for a baby check with her 6-month-old and she had what looked like chocolate milk in the baby’s bottle. So he started explaining to her as kindly as he could that she shouldn’t be giving her baby chocolate milk. At which point she interrupts him and says, ‘Oh that isn’t chocolate milk. It’s coffee! He just loves it!”

"I had a patient come in for an STD check. She was very upset and continued to tell me that she only had one partner. Progressing through my assessment, she further divulged that even if he was sleeping with other people it shouldn’t matter ‘because he uses a condom every time and he makes sure to wash it thoroughly after every use’.”

"Had a lady who measured her baby’s temperature by pre-heating the oven and putting one hand in front of it while the other hand was on the baby’s forehead. She told the nurse her baby’s fever was about 250 degrees.”

"Lady has to have foot amputated and is given waiver forms to sign pre-op. Buddy asks if she needs time to think about it. She’s very nonchalant and doesn’t seem to care much what they do. He gets suspicious and probes a bit as to why she’s not more concerned. She says she gets that they have to operate and it’s OK because the foot will grow back.”

"I had a couple who had been trying to conceive for over two years. I asked all the usual questions, how often do you have sex, any previous pregnancy, etc etc. Something seemed off to me during the consult, so I continued to ask questions. Finally I asked if he ejaculated while inserted into the vagina. Both parties looked confused.Turns out the couple was not having insertional sex at all. I had to awkwardly explain to them how insertional sex works. Diagrams were required.”

"Patient comes in, she’s upset. She’s pregnant, and she doesn’t understand why. She’s on the pill. Upon talking to her at great length, I find out that she only takes the pills on the days that she is sexually active – no other time.”

"Patient comes in with her bf. They are indignant, as if somehow I could’ve prevented [the pregnancy]. The problem? Well, the pills were bothering the girl’s stomach, so, being a gallant bf, he decided to start taking them instead.”

I was explaining the treatment to the husband of a patient about to be discharged. He kept nodding and agreeing with me, but I knew it was flying over his head. Turned out a fundamental problem was that I was describing the drugs as ‘tablets’ and he had no clue what those were.

Reddit thread 

Hahah

Oh my god… I can’t decide if I should laugh or cry…

Okay but do you realize how many of these could be fixed with proper sex ed? It hurts.

Good grief, what are they teaching at school? Nothing? And their parents? Aaargh…

The Chinese Periodic Table: 元素週期表 (Part 2)
As discussed in the first part of this post, the characters for the chemical elements in Chinese were constructed by grouping them based on their properties at STP (gas, liquid, solid nonmetal, solid metal), assigning a semantic portion (a “radical”) based on that physical property (气, 水/氵, 石, 釒), and adding on a phonetic portion that is indicative of its properties or its pronunciation in European languages. However, this is not the end of the story… 
Due to the divide between Mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong/Macau, the names of the elements are not entirely consistent between each region. The most noticeable difference is the Mainland’s use of simplified characters over traditional characters. As many people familiar with Chinese know, the Chinese language is written using simplified characters in Mainland China and regions like Singapore and Malaysia, and using traditional characters in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.
The most prominent difference between the simplified and traditional forms of the periodic table is the simplification of the “metal” radical from 釒 down to 钅. In addition to this minor change, many characters had their phonetic portion simplified according to the rules laid out by the PRC as well. For example: 鐵 → 铁 (iron, tiě), 氬 → 氩 (argon, yǎ/yà), 鑭 → 镧 (lanthanum, lán).
Aside from these trivial differences, there are some larger variations in the characters. Because of the civil war and consequent split between the Mainland and Taiwan, some elements discovered in the 1930’s and onward had different names in the two regions, depending on what character was chosen to represent the European pronunciation. Hong Kong and Macau add an additional level of confusion to this; both harbor cities write using traditional characters but are technically governed under the Mainland. These two regions use primarily traditional forms of the Mainland standard, but occasionally borrow the Taiwanese standard instead. For example: 
Francium - 鍅 (fǎ; TW) / 钫 (fāng; CN) / 鈁 (fāng; HK)
Technetium - 鎝 (tǎ; TW) / 锝 (dé; CN) / 鍀 (dé; CN)
Lutetium - 鎦 (liú; TW) / 镥 (lǔ; CN) / 鑥 (lǔ; CN)
Americium - 鋂 (méi; TW/HK) / 镅 (méi; CN)
Neptunium - 錼 (nài; TW/HK) / 镎 (ná; CN)
Although almost all of the elements with different names are elements that were discovered recently, silicon is a distinct exception. Silicon is known as 矽 (xì) in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and primarily as 硅 (guī) in the Mainland (although 矽 is also occasionally used). But silicon was discovered long before the Chinese Civil War; why are there differing names? This distinction is a story for next time, so stay tuned….
