11 Times Asians Proved They Were 100 Years Ahead of the Rest of the World

Asians have proven themselves to be the most over-achieving group of people in the world but our talents aren’t limited to just tech and academics. Our tiger moms have taught us to be the best at everything so that’s exactly what we’re out here trying to do. Here are 10 times Asians proved they were at least 100 years ahead of the rest of the world.

Why hasn’t anyone else ever thought of this?

2. We waste no time when it comes to serving food

Because more time waiting for the servers to put down all of your food means less time actually digging in and who wants that?

3. We’ve mastered the art of cat fishing

We’ve evolved past contouring a long time ago, it’s time for a new age of makeup transformations.

4. Chopsticks for everything
