The Betelnut Equation. Why?

Why did it name the blog the betelnut equation?

I would have chosen Taiwan if someone hadn't wisely taken the name along time ago.

Anyway, the Betelnut Equation is so named because Taiwan is famous for the betelnut and for getting the best math scores in the world. The two items are opposite in many ways and serve as a good measure of the contradictions you see in Taiwan and in ourselves.
