Qiandao Lake is a man-made lake located in Chun’an County, China, where archeologists have discovered in 2001 ruins of an underwater city. The city is at a depth of 26-40 meters and was named “Lion City”. There would have been 290 000 people living in this city during more than 1300 years. Touristic expeditions are projected.

I am just literally going to post this on like every site I’m on I guess. Here just have a link to the forum post I made regarding this.
And here let me copy a few TL;DR things:
Hello I’m Nekyua and I’m looking for another person to do a table with hopefully at Fanime 2014 for Artist Alley.
Okay I have 0 experience with doing anything AA related ): I’m hoping someone experienced can help me out, but if you aren’t and want to do it with me and you’re pretty cool then it’s okay we can be nubby together xoxo. I’m pretty blunt, so like honestly if a few people actually are interested in this then I’m going to pretty much judge who I wanna be with based on your art and my chemistry with your personality (; If you’re local around SJ that would be pretty chill too cause then we can meet up and holla about this or something. If not that’s cool too we can just chit chat on like skype/twitter/da/tumblr something or another and meet at con and be like ooOooooOOOOOOooo.
I know it’s kind of like silly to post on here since I have almost nada followers (or well isnt that the case with just about every site I’m on— that’s okay I guess but ahhh) but hey it’s worth a try at least right?
I also honestly really appreciate if this gets signal boosted a bit or anything cause you know you never know there might be someone out there who be down.
i’m reading a study about asian-american stereotypes and for some reason filipinos are grouped separately from southeast asians????? why???? are we not southeast asians what is going on?????????
Southeast Asian (Vietnamese, Laotian, Cambodian, and Hmong)
East Asian (Chinese, Filipino, Koreans, and Japanese)
I’m always amused when non-AA’s try to figure this out, because they don’t know the half of it. The truth is, it really depends who you ask, where, during what time period you are referring to, and who is doing the classification. When they’re doing censuses, they don’t often split up the actual ethnic identities UNLESS there is a significant population that needs to be tallied up. Some places may just have “Asian” and then encompass everyone from Turkey and EAST of it. In some places, they lump “Asian/Pacific Islander”. In others, they’ll break it down further and further. It all really depends. Back in my elementary school years, there were Asian/Pacific Islander, then by high school “Asian” or “Pacific Islander”, then “SE Asian” or “E Asian” or “Pacific Islander”, now, they sometimes have those categories AND separate ones for specific ethnicity.
So, when people go back to study the data, it gets confusing and there is no ONE set system to go by. They can also lump groups that have similar circles of influence, diet, language, genetic factors (when you think Taiwanese, you don’t think of the native populace that has similar genetics to ethnic Filipinos, do you?) as well as just region.
As far as language goes, it can be broken down further. For instance, technically in the US, I’m a linguistic minority (Ilocano - the majority of Fil-Ams now come from Tagalog backgrounds, except for a few pockets, like around Hawaii) of a ethnic minority (Filipino) of a minority group (Asian).
Does this answer your question?
