Sima Yi’s family is in ruins; in tears, Liaoyuan Huo bids Handicapped Warriors farewell
As a child I learned in history class that the ancient Chinese suffered through all kinds of foreign oppressions.
Now that I’m older I tend to read deeper into things.
And turns out those foreign people were oppressed by us so much that they had to fight back.
Invasions became expeditions; only historians would write such lies.
War is a misfortune, and those who write history were merely pawns on their own side.
Even modern history is all over the place, let alone ancient history.
I always feel that history is not to be trusted-
It all starts with a fart (aka “bullshit”), and it all ends with shit, while human lives are like toilet paper.
Shit-ory (or Shit-story) of China
(the hanzi 史 “history” being covered by the dropping is pronounced in the same way as the hanzi 屎 “shit”)
