Well now, this is a very promising start to a wikipedia article.
Ok, this article is 🔥FIRE🔥
I hope my last words are this profound.
Christ, there’s bloody loads!
“…most of them derogatory.”
“A title he awarded to himself.”

Bit of casual skull splitting. Nice.
I too number my concubines
Quite the polymath
“…(that is, banditry)”
I genuinely clapped when I read this poem of his.
“…he slapped the Dragon King’s statue several times…”
And finally, the coffin car. What a glorious, murderous, cockeyed bag of spanners
Here’s the full article - our boy Zhang: He was a right wrong ‘un.
👉 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhang_Zon…
(Btw, if anyone’s got anyone’s got any good reccos for Warlord-era China books, lemme know as I am willing to put in double shifts down this particular batshit mine)

Absolutely gutted to hear that this absolutely legend - Barry Smith - has passed away.

If you ever worked in learning disability care in Leeds, or had reason to knock about around the outdoor market, you’ll know Barry. He was beyond one-in-a-million.
We worked together in the first job I had when I washed up in Leeds. Within minutes of meeting me he told me:

“There’s only three things I’ve wanted in life: To be an art teacher, a sheet metal worker and a gunsmith. AND I’VE DONE THEM ALL.”
And that was just the tip of the iceberg as it quickly became apparent that there was nothing about Leeds that he didn’t know. A shift with Barry would take in a grand sweep of local history, from the cholera pit that you happened to be walking over to the history of stamped tin.
