From Neil Gaiman’s journal a few days ago:

I learned from Wikipedia that Sandman:The Dream Hunters was actually based on Pu Songling’s Strange Stories From A Chinese Studio, which I thought I ought to read.

I don’t know if that’s funnier as proof that you can say anything on Wikipedia, or as another example of how the Chinese invented everything first.

    But on another note for Chinese invent, I dislike those Chinese try to grab everything for their fake name honor to put on their head, live the benefit of their ancestors.
    especially, people live in beijing, so fake and actor like, that is why I never want to go to that city, and lack of water all the time, windy sandstorm of fall weather, not to mention people less shower and soapless stink, and tune of their proud accent even worse.

    So what is your favorite city there?

    You anonymous people are confusing me, I have no idea who’s talking anymore! Just make up a name, you don’t need to sign in or register or give your email or anything.

    By the way, anonymous # 4… you’re dead right on the awful weather, but I happen to love the Beijing accent, it sounds like pirates. RRRR!
