04-19-2000, 07:19 PM
I'm half asian...hahahaha
heh check this link out if you guys haven't seen it yet
04-19-2000, 07:24 PM
I too am Asian, though I don't think my screen name makes it too obvious.
Are there any asians not from Cali here? I'm from TX, and it seems like everyone here is from one coast or another.
04-19-2000, 07:41 PM

04-19-2000, 09:47 PM

oops, another brain fart!
04-20-2000, 12:40 AM
I'm not Asian,
I'm an Irish American and I think that grouping anyone is wrong !!
I'm not Drunk "all the time hehe" and I don't think you need to say "most of them" about any people !
Each person is whatever they make of themselves and people who feel they need to put anyone into a group rating system are rarely all that they should be !

04-20-2000, 06:20 PM
Hey you think I'm asian? http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif I guess it's too obvious.
To fellow asians, do you think all asian moms love great deals/haggle too much? http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
04-20-2000, 08:17 PM

You know you're asian when:

04-25-2000, 03:23 PM
Another thing to ponder...
Do Asians have a special love with Honda Accords? http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif Think about it... It seems to me that almost every other Asian I know has a Honda Accord.... hehe
Am I the only asian who refuses to drive FWD? That rules out all hondas except the S2000 and NSX. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif

04-27-2000, 01:10 PM
That first url seems like it was written by a non-asian, but that second one is DEAD ON!!! I found myself qualifying as an asian on every single point. Is that sad, or just life?
04-27-2000, 03:18 PM
hehehe http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I found the second one much funnier too http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif I was giggling so bad at work people were looking at me strangely http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
Maybe I should just delete the first one http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
04-27-2000, 05:33 PM

i think i live pretty close to you apex. one of my friend thinks he saw you at our local best buy during the MSN fiasco. give me your addie and i'll stalk you. yea?
as for the asian thing, i totally agree with speedracer. i'm also asian but i'm so sick of the other asians who have TOO much pride and thinking they're the sh*t. why is it always civics and integras? geez. and dont get me started about westminster.
04-29-2000, 12:25 AM
Hey definition, the funny thing is that I drive a Civic http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif. After further consideration I think should've got a VW or something more original, but they cost more.
04-29-2000, 03:53 PM
i'm caucasian if that counts.
04-30-2000, 01:35 AM
Oh man, some of those UCI acronyms are killing me http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif I guess if you're not from SoCal you may not get it.
I grew up in Cerritos and went to undergrad at UCLA - I know Asian. I'm Indian and my best friend and first girlfirend were both Korean - go fig.
What's sad is that those stereotypes with the cars and all are well deserved. My "white" roomate who thought I was being racist challenged me to identify drivers in cars by the car they drove. I offered to do it by the engine noise alone. So I stood on a corner at UCLA one day and turned my back to the traffic and listened to the engine as the cars drove up a hill. I was 87% accurate as to which cars has Asian drivers, whites, blacks, etc.
The point is people do what they're accustomed to and feel comfortable doing. That's OK. Failure to look outside of those limits because of fear or shear ignorance, that's wrong.
OK, Enough Soapbox time. Don't know where the heck that came from...
BTW, from an anthropological/evolutionary-morphological look at it, we're all either Egyptian or Morrocan as that appears to be were the "human" species evolved. Different subspecies later delineated from that as land barriers separated groups...zzzzzz

05-10-2000, 12:34 AM
Hmm only half asian...the half that list applies to me i guess...but i don't drive a honda...can't afford it... http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/tongue.gif
Perhaps the question should have been: Who here is not Asian?
Here in the UK, "Asian" refers to Indians, Pakastani, etc... Asians (as per US meaning) are called "Oriental" here. (talk about being out-dated!)
As an American studying in the UK, you pick up some differences like these along the way (like you don't say "fanny" here!)
BTW-I am Asian too-- UK definition!
05-10-2000, 04:09 PM
MD2B: by that definition, i am asian too
its more logical like that cause if you are born in asia you should be considered asian, the same way that europeans are all people from europe.
05-11-2000, 01:22 AM
I'm Indian and I always thought of myself as Asian, especially with 70% of my hometown being from Asian continent. I thought this until my dad told me that Indians, Persian, Pakistani, etc, are all biologically of Caucasian decent.
So now I'm just a white boy with a dark, dark tan hehe. When I look at somebody I don't deny their ancestral background - that's just ignorance. I just treat them the same as everybody regardless of color.
Ço£o§§ü§ - yeah you can read into it...
Which is to say colossus treats everyone like crap. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif
I find the whole idea of dividing people up into groups to be outdated. But alas there are certain groups *cough* NAACP *cough* in this country that love to do that.
05-11-2000, 01:14 PM
I thought we just gonna talk about who's asian in here? Enough of the stereotyping... sheesh
05-11-2000, 01:26 PM
i dont know about indian decent but original persians are arians
colossus: your dad's right--it has to do with 3 racial "types"
Negroid, Mongloid, and Caucasoid--based on hair type/distribution (If my recollection from Sociology lectures is right) But then again-- those years are a fading memory!!
Even though there are racial tensions in most parts of the country/world--its nice that we can look past the differences on these BBs/forums.
(I'll get off the soapbox now...)
My ancestors wern't picky about race. But I guess most of them were Scottish/Irish or English.

Hey, I'm Asian, but I didn't go to UCI. I have two cousins who are there though...but no stereotyping please...I'm not the typical Asian woman. ;) I drive a SUV, am dating a woman(yes, my parents want to kill me), and play sports...hmm....
05-18-2000, 03:23 PM
What do you mean u, ur not typical, half the asian women i know drive a suv they can't control.
05-18-2000, 04:01 PM
hey, the SUV i drive isn't that hard to control...lol...it's only a honda crv... http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/wink.gif
oh, but wait, half of my past cars fit the
asian stereotype...i used to have an acura
integra and a honda accord....
05-18-2000, 11:56 PM
Chinese at UCR
87 Acura Integra (yes, I know it's an old car).....no money for new one.
05-21-2000, 01:24 AM
"UCI" actually stands for:
Univeristy of Chinese Immigrants
BTW, I'm an Asian who attends UCI
05-21-2000, 03:03 AM
?? I thought it was a reference to the overwhelming number of civics and integras rolling around over here. Anyways, I'm not Asian, but I got to UCI and drive a little tricked out civic...go figure.

Such a pretty black color and so soft! Mine is naturally curly and tends to frizz easily! Wish I had his hair, that's for sure! http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif

Anybody here go to UC Riverside? We have the highest % of Asians of all the UC's now! I think we beat UCI by a few %.
05-26-2000, 12:29 AM
great...that's about the only thing to be proud of at UCR.
05-26-2000, 04:20 PM
Four good reasons not to goto UC Riverside, Smog, too far, too many Asians, and the smell of manure. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
One good reason to go to Riverside:
The best Shotokan team on a college campus in America.
05-26-2000, 07:25 PM
crimsonburning: went there.. 97 grad..
the manure.. imagine how much sh!t there must be in chino and norco for the winds to bring it all the way to riverside..
apex: really? maybe i should have some riverside pride now lol..

Hey, the only reason I came out here is because of that stupid biomed program (7 year UCR/UCLA med school thing) and they paid me.. literally. They gave me four years paid tuition and a stipend. And where does all my extra $$ go? He he.. this site is my money pit, even with all the good deals.
05-26-2000, 11:13 PM
Onalamwar: UCR alumni huh? What was your major? I probably know you through someone.. this campus is so stinkin small.. well, it used to be at least.
Well, just to defend my little smelly school... we're DIVISION I now! ... which is more than I can say for UCSD, UCSC, and UCD. And yes, yes, I know we suck but I'm graduating and going to med school soon. I'll just pretend I went to Stanford for undergrad when our team gets clobbered by them next season.
05-26-2000, 11:28 PM
crimsonburning: yeah maybe you know someone that knows me.. who knows.. my username isn't really hiding anything.. anyways.. i was biomed until the last quarter when i dropped it and finished up in biochem.. what year r u now? i'm actually going to a friends md graduation on june 2 (he just finished the program)...

I actually graduated last spring (99) but I stuck around to do some research while waiting to hear from med schools. I too dropped out of that stupid program right before interviews started and changed to biochem. Hmm.. did you know Josh Young? It think he was your year. And James Hsu? I think Josh is now at Loma Linda for med school and James is still here doing that biochem masters thing. Hmm.. I know a bunch of other 97 grads but I can't think of them now.
05-27-2000, 05:56 PM
for some reason those names don't ring a bell.. i ended up taking all of the biomed undergrad classes except for bio 115.. who are you doing research for?
06-01-2000, 02:38 PM
I'm doing research with Dr. Cohen. He teaches neuroscience for fourth year biomeds. What are you doing now? I'm reapplying to med school so I'm not sure what I should do for another year. I don't want to be in Riverside tho...
06-01-2000, 04:06 PM
cohen was my mentor or whatever.. i really doubt he'll remember me.. i did some neuro research for dr. stanley.. anyways now i'm doing my mba at uci.. big switch..
