Lactose Intolerant? Just tolerate it!

The 5 Love Languages – Asian Edition

Just the other day, a few of us were walking to a restaurant to pick up some food to go. As we came to an intersection, one of our coworkers decided to jaywalk across the street putting all our lives in danger. Ok, maybe I was a little dramatic, but I was thinking that the likelihood of getting struck by a car greatly increases when disobeying crossing laws.

Games of Skill

We previously discussed why there aren't many top-ranked Asian athletes. But there is one area of sports where Asians dominate - E-Sports. Esports comprises a large swathe of video game genres, but the most common esports video game genres are multiplayer online battle arena games (like League of Legends, DOTA 2, and Smite); first-person shooter games (like Counter-Strike and Call of Duty); fighting games (like Street Fighter, Super Smash Brothers, and Mortal Kombat); digital collectible card games (like Hearthstone), battle royale games (like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale); and real-time strategy games (like StarCraft and WarCraft).

Games of Chance

Because you didn't get your Dose of Asianess last week, this week is a two-fer. The only thing Asians like better than games of skill (like Esports), are games of chance. Asians have an especially strong love of gambling.
