Its 2am, I'm bored but can't go to sleep, and sometimes I just remember this place! I have some nostalgic feelings about this forum for some reason!
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

Because its the first forum I ever attended online, I had such a love for Dynasty Warriors 2 that I desired to learn more about the storys behind the characters I saw in the games, its funny that despite all my wanderings over the years I still come back to this place and still learn something new looking around. ^^

Because when I'm not buried in University books, I still carry a dream about this place.
Alone I lean under the wispy shade of an aged tree,
Scornfully I raise to parted lips a cup of warm wine,
Longingly I cast an empty vessel aside those exposed roots,
And leave behind forgotten memories and forsaken dreams.

I think my passion for the 3K was a formative part of who I am today and SoSZ was part of that so this place is part of who I am and I don't think I'll ever truly be able to wander away from it (nor can I ever imagine wanting to!).
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!

I came back to admire Taishi Ci 2.0's excellent translation from the ZZTJ on the 16 Kingdoms period.

Sausage taught me a lot over the years!! It taught me to listen to variety of arguments that I would never have otherwise!! To be confident online and embrace other like minded individuals!! It also taught me to be very careful online and in real life about people as sometimes you try your best to be the nicest person and it will backfire and your safety can be compromised as a result and so its ok to be honest even if feelings are hurt!!
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!

I always come back to old forums I've been a part of - it's so interesting to watch how people evolve over time. I also have heavy nostalgic tendencies.

I came back because I was pleasantly surprised that some of my old friends are still active in this forum after more than a decade, and I thought it would be great if we can reconnect. I'd probably take a much more relax stance towards RTK history and intellectual discussions compared to the days when I was locked up in my lab doing my research work. :lol:

Because everything for me always circles back to the Three Kingdoms and thus SoSZ every five or so years, it's kind of like a measure of how I've matured as a human being intellectually and otherwise, and I learn more every time, and also everyone is so friendly and intelligent

I've been a member for a little over half my life so how could I not?
