Apparently, 1 in 5 people in the world are Chinese.

And there are 5 people in my family, so it must be one of them. It's either my mum or my dad......or maybe my older brother Colin. Or my younger brother Ho-Cha-Chu.
But I'm pretty sure it's Colin.

Actually, it should be something like 1.2 out of every 6, but since my eyes aren't all that slanted, I can't really account for the .2

1.2 per 5 equals 6 per 30 :) So, for every 30 people in the world there are 6 Chinese :) Don't let that 0.2 go to waste, multiply it by 5 and you'll get ONE whole person, lol :)

This is what I heard also. I'm Chinese and there are times when people have called me "Oriental". Most of time they're senior citizen's, and it doesn't bother me since it was proper to call Asian's "Oriental" during their time.

You guys need to learn math.
6/30 = 1/5
1.2/6 = 1/5
2/10 = 1/5
