Hey guys, it’s been a while.
I’ve been busy doing a lot of stuff and I’ve done my part in troll bashing on other websites. This isn’t the off-topic chitchat page, so I’ll make it brief:
There’s a big filipino myth I wanted to bash and see if it could make the webpage.
Filipinos love to believe that our race is the best race (I can’t be racist to myself, can I?) and one of these sources of excess pride is this. Filipino “Inventors.” I won’t say who wrote this, since he wants to remain anonymous, but he’s a good friend of mine and I helped with the research. Filipinos believe in the myth that many of the foreign inventions are made BY filipinos. Example? The m16, colloquially known here as the Armalite, is made by “Armando Lite.” Hence the name.
This is mostly perpetuated by the schools and by many wikis (mostly filipino.) and I think it’s shameful to believe in such delusions. I’ve scoured the web, and some books, but they all lead to the same thing; text messages and urban myths. There are a lot more frauds here in the Pinas, but I can only supply this link right now. It’s a nice hoax that deserves attention since it has a LOT of Filipinos believing in it.
Thing is, people aren’t so nice when they see something they don’t like. If there are any other filipinos browsing this thread, I hope you become open-minded about this; I’ve been heckled and denounced as a fraud whenever I present my evidence, and really, there is no evidence supporting them.
