commonly accepted bullshit

1. "cooked food is easier to digest and generally better for you than raw", this everyone my generation and above knows, and is complete false.

2. "third world" people who move to another country are called "immigrants", but "first world" people who do the same are called "expats". so i guess i was a Chinese immigrant, but now i'm an American expat. i'm going to exchange the 2 terms during usage starting now. i wonder if people will actually correct me after i say "Swedish immigrants" or "Nigerian expats". (or as someone cleverly said on Facebook: "Mexican Expats living in America with non-Mexicans")

3. coming soon
