This dude's face is almost the shape of a square, equal on all sides. I know Chinese folks usually have large square faces but Jack Ma's face must be on the extreme end of the spectrum even by Chinese standard. Truly a face only a mother could love, but hey, at least he's rich! :D

Your brain is wired like a retard.
Fawk Yu (1 month ago)
blabla62871 Yet most modern techs were invented by Europeans who on average have smaller skulls than East Asians. In fact, natural science courses in Asian curriculum are all based off of European scientific findings. So there goes your "big head = higher IQ" right out the window. It's not the size or the brain but how it's wired that matters.

Trump's successful just only represent in the past. Jack Ma's successful can represent in the future.
Jun Jie (3 months ago)
Jack Ma was very modest. Trump was very arrogant. One of them was successor. Another of them was loser. Both are not comparing.
Himajama (17 days ago)
you're foolish and short-sighted, and if you want to talk then talk, don't parrot your points. goodbye.
Jun Jie (17 days ago)
+Himajama not maybe, it's true and fact that there are many Invisible richers rich than Donald Trump. In my opinion,. You don't care about data in detail. Don't be like a frog at the bottom of a well.
Jun Jie (17 days ago)
+Himajamayou and trump was more ignorant. Don't blame others ignorant. Trump's trade war failed that's true. If you don't admit trump's failed, you and trump was idiot.
Himajama (17 days ago)
and there's no such thing as an 'invisible richer' aside from some criminals and tax evaders. there's modest rich people but they're not invisible; we know who they are and roughly how much they make due to government records and estimates.
Himajama (17 days ago)
+Jun Jie it hasn't failed, first off. it's not a great success but it certainly hasn't failed in what it's trying to do; saying it has shows your lack of comprehension of politics. second, there's maybe a 1,000 people who are richer than Trump - that's true - but there's also an odd 7,000,000,000 people who aren't. i'm sure among those 7 billion there's a fair amount of people humbler than Trump as well. Trump may be 'arrogant' but as far as i'm concerned you're ignorant of how much that actually matters.
