    I don't understand the point of your sarcasm. Sarcasm is usually directed against something. What was it directed against?

    Current situation role standards.

    I'll rephrase myself. I think I do get it. But the sarcastic comment it stupid. I just wanted to be a bit more polite.

    In other words, you responded to sarcasm with sarcasm.

    I'm glad we got that clarified.

    I wasn't sarcastic. I was just polite

    Hey. Look at what I found hiding behind the couch. It's been there since '96

    https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-...285-story.html

    Asian Women Rate Western Beauty a Cut Above Their Own : Cosmetic surgery: From Thailand to South Korea to the Philippines, women who can afford it go under the knife to have their eyelids and noses altered. Not doing so crimps careers, they say.


    As Thailand embraces fast-food restaurants, blue jeans and Hollywood movies in its zeal to Westernize, its women are having their faces nipped and tucked to fit in. Though many say they are not seeking to look Western, the higher nose bridges and smaller, folded eyelids they are getting are distinctly European.

    This type of cosmetic surgery has taken off in much of male-dominated Asia, where beauty is a must for many women who want to get ahead. From South Korea to the Philippines to Malaysia, women who can afford it are going under the knife in hopes of achieving the now-popular European concept of beauty.
    Time waste over?

    America has become a divided nation where everything is political. The browning of America isn't a good or bad thing depending on your skin colour, why can't it simply be a thing that is happening? Both sides are equally to blame for the politicalization of all issues. But the media shares blame for allowing themselves to be drawn in and used like any other tool of the parties.
