    oh, so you were …
    oh, so you were responding to a silly comment. Rather than say there are more intellects speak mandarin, just say it’s the official chinese language please.

    you made it sound like chinese intellects chose to speak mandarin.

    have you not seen …
    have you not seen the IBM logo written in Xenon atoms adsorbed on a nickel surface?

    so given that …
    so given that mandarin is the official language then surely you would agree with me when i said no to the original poster’s insistence that the new year’s greeting be given in cantonese.

    You shouldn’t use …
    You shouldn’t use the same spoon for each tea.

    Well, that’s cause …
    Well, that’s cause Mandarin is the official language China. People who speak Shanghainese, Cantonese, Hainanese, Taiwanese, etc… would also likely speak Mandarin too.

    Yep thought so, ah …
    Yep thought so, ah Americans and theuir poncy “apreciation” of tea. Deary deary me.

    I doubt you actually appreciate wine either come to think of it since you suggested something as prosaic as “French Wine” (from the region of “France” presumably 😉 )

    “Only Fine Chinese Tea” tee hee, or tea hee if you prefer.

    I’m an American who …
    I’m an American who drinks only fine Chinese tea. Putting milk or sugar into tea is like pouring ketchup into French wine, or adding electric guitars and stadium horns to a Handel woodwind sonata. But if you’ve drunk only British ‘tea’, you wouldn’t understand the difference.

    Quote (corrected) “no one has (ever) seen (an) atom (with the naked eye)”

    (No one has ever seen God with the naked eye either. From one atom formed being to another.)

    besides there are no chinese nobel laureates, they are just of chinese ancestry and have all been naturalized in their host countries

    ok, but i never said there were no catonese academics but rather if you looked at the percentage of mandarin speakers vs catonese speakers, they are overwhelmingly mandarin.

    Stephen Chu (Nobel …
    Stephen Chu (Nobel Prize winner) should be of Chinese Cantonese origin.

    “Chu” is the same surname as “Zhu,” except the former is translated from Cantonese to English, the latter Mandarin to English.

    I drank out of a lot of beakers in the sixtie’s…What were we talking about? 🙂 This is what Jimmy Page is going to look like in ten years. The girl at the end has had WAY to much caffeine…

    What? First you …
    What? First you need to clarify for yourself the meaning of the word Theory. In science it does not mean what you think it means.

    Second, you will want to google the following: “Scanning Tunneling Microscopy” and you will see that we have in fact, seen atoms.

    If you don’t understand why we can’t see atoms with normal light, then you need to study electromagnetism.

    This has been your science public service announcement for the day.

    Wow, that was a fascinating video! Tea sure can be more complicated than one would think. Great video, as always.
