[Richard is tall, puts ketchup on all his food, and has a big nose.]
Foreigners get upset about some of the commercials shown on TV in Taiwan. Even some product names can upset the expatriate community.
Some advertisements may seem innocent to the people of Taiwan, but outsiders can be much offended. Reactions may include revulsion, anger, or laughter, but they are not intentionally insulting. These mistakes came from unawareness and not from hatred or ill will.
For example, there once was a German-made air conditioner for sale. The Taiwan seller wanted to emphasize its German roots, so in the advertising, they had a cartoon Hitler. He said it was because German products have a good reputation for dependability, and when people think of Hitler, they think of Germany. The ad cause a stir and even some official condemnation from foreign governments.

[Richard’s favorite comic heroes were The Hulk, Iron Man, and Casper the Friendly Ghost.]
Some of the most popular comic books in the United States, like Captain America and Wonder Women, were created at a time when the world was at war and the American people needed to work together and encourage each other. The comic book writers and artists provided a way to escape reality, which was worse than any of their made up evils. They also stimulated the Americans’ sense of unity and purpose.
The United States had to rally it’s citizens. Comics were a cheap and popular source of propaganda. Whether the government had anything to do with it, or if it was just the natural patriotism of the comic writers and artists, heroes at that time were all dressed up in red, white, and blue with plenty of stars and bars.

針對2016台北雙年展，法籍策展人柯琳．狄瑟涵提出「當下的姿態與檔案，未來的系譜」（Gestures and archives of the present, genealogies of the future）的文獻活化概念，將美術館視為遊走於異質藝術領域，穿梭在歷史、社會、文化文本的知識平台，欲透過現存的檔案文獻更趨近未來的知識系譜，藉以了解自身與區域文獻紀錄、記憶模式、解讀與使用、潛在挪用和再現之間的關係。

[Trick or treat.]
Halloween is a holiday with very old traditions. In the old days, kids would carry bags and walk around their neighborhoods dressed like monsters and ghosts. They would knock on doors and when the door opened, they would yell, “Trick or treat!” and the person inside would put some candy in the bags. “Trick or treat” didn’t mean anything, it was just what you were supposed to say. Kids would never play tricks on people.
The Shelves are Stocked
For various reasons, most people don’t “trick or treat” like that anymore. They go to parties and have other group activities. It is safer.

[Let's just say that you don't want to be around Richard when he sweats too much.]
“It's not the heat; it's the humidity.” That is what they say. Moisture in the air makes it seem much hotter than the temperature gauge indicates. The water comes from the ocean, and Taiwan is surrounded by oceans. Hence the humidity. Some shade and a cool breeze is what is called for here.
The humidity causes things to rust fast. Rust doesn't sleep, they say, but rust isn’t alive. It is an oxidation process, so of course it will not sleep. Water is a catalyst. It speeds the chemical reaction between the air and steel.
