On the Big Brother listserv, Ellen's subject line:
[Big Brother] Tao's dark, blank, sexy eyes?
...with simply a link to this article in Global Times.
Name: Anthony Tao
Quiz: Kro's Nest
Amount of years in Beijing: This is the start of year four, though the answer is 10 if you count the time I spent in Beijing for the first 5.5 years of my life and subsequent summer visits.
Strengths: Ultimate Frisbee
Weaknesses: Approaching women sitting by themselves at cafes
I'm running a quiz in Beijing because: It's fun
How come no girls run quizzes? I'm sure they do in the privacy of their double-x-chromosoned coteries, along with plotting to outlive men and take over the world.
How do you rate the competition? My only competition is myself, so...depends on how much I've been drinking.
How do you rate your chances? 100, if you're talking about with your mom. Unless she's at a cafe right now.
Specialty subject: Baseball
