comment The translation of “Karma”
@suud, they are somehow related but not quite the same. 宿命 refers to the present outcome whereas karma or 业报 refers to past actions. The Buddhist believe that past actions affect present outcome. Whether it is proper or improper depends on the context. As correctly pointed out by Ma Ming, this word is more neutral, whereas 报应 and 孽 shows a level of grudge or vindictiveness on the speaker, which would not be very appropriate in normal circumstances.

@suud, the two word version is 宿命 - predestination. This is a different concept from karma.

comment the meaning of 算什么 in 《我爱台妹》
台妹 does not mean Taiwanese girls. It is the female version of 台客 - a Taiwanese country bumpkin. The song is an expression of the singer's affection towards 台妹 in contrast to the more sophisticated city girls like the two celebrities.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx, no, no. I never dispute the historical meaning of 青. If you want to take all that into consideration, you can never assign a single colour to it as it has several meanings. I don't believe that it is a mistake made by Wikipedia, but something that people has taken into consideration to create a new meaning for this word which would otherwise be discarded due to its ambiguity.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx, both Wikipedia and Baidu says exactly the same thing. To imply that both are wrong is like 一竹竿打翻整船人.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx, if you refer to Baidu article, it says 青色 and 水绿色 are synonymous. Different people may perceive it differently, and that's alright.
