"Will not be provided!" lol. C2: "If these terms are ever violated he will perish without any descendants." Um, monks never have descendants anyway. They're sworn to celibacy as far as I know. So, is he the only one that can see all these theatrics? If not, then I have to wonder why no one seems to have noticed. C3: "Indeed. The monks these days eat anything. They gamble, smoke, and hire prostitutes." He doesn't have the money for that sort of thing... Though, even if he did, the system would likely strike him with lightning if he tried to do any of them. C5: I wonder why he thinks he'll get a draw chance from the second rescue. The system's words clearly implied that it was a one time thing. Also, love how he didn't bother to try to prevent the rude b*****d from falling C6: I wonder why they don't suspect him of setting booby traps for them so that he'll look like he can see the future? C7: I wonder if you can pray to a child-giving Guan Yin to ask that she not give you any children So, he did get a second draw? Honestly wasn't expecting that. C8: That Buddhist symbol of peace looks an awful lot like a Swastika... C12: I wonder if he can plant the seeds that grow from the seed he bought, or if they're genetically sterilized or something to prevent him from only buying seeds once. C13: I'm glad he thought to ask about replanting. If temples are taxed in China, then I expect they'll be trying to accuse him of lying on his taxes. C15: "That night, Buddha came to me, and he said that I have been a good person for my past ten lives." How is that not a lie? And why didn't he just say that he'd met a wealthy benefactor that offered to renovate the temple in exchange for him agreeing to aid the spread of Buddhism? That would at least be true, if only partially so. Well, he could just split it between them and then cook more for himself after they leave. Though honestly, they know his financial situation. They shouldn't be demanding his food. C16: "Even the slightest mistake will render all the hard work of planting moot." Yet another lie. C18: "As long as you are sincere, anything you do wish for will be granted." Another lie. Unless his temple is suddenly going to start resurrecting, killing, and enslaving people of course. Then it might be true. C19: I'm beginning to think that he doesn't know what it means to not lie. He's told at least one in practically every chapter since it was mentioned that he couldn't lie. I wonder if that doctor will start recommending the MC's temple to his other hopeless patients. C21: Is patient privacy not a thing in China? Or does that nurse just not understand the massive ethics violation she just committed? C23: How is using the money to buy food for himself from the system any different from using that same money to buy food from the grocery store? In terms of Buddhism I mean. C25: I wonder if that intelligence boost applies to humans too. C28: I wonder how he'll keep the moron from driving. Actually saying anything to him about it is bound to have the opposite effect at best. He could use that and say that someone else absolutely shouldn't drive, but then they wouldn't get their faces slapped, and there's no way the author would tolerate that. C31: People talk to their pets all the time. What's strange about that? "Stop. Don't move. The wolf is angry. This is a warning that canines give out. If we take another step forward, we will be attacked." Is there anyone on Earth that doesn't already know this? Aside from very small children that is. Though, even they could likely figure it out in less than a second based on instinct alone. C32: "All This Penniless Monk learned is some body-strengthening techniques. Patrons, please leave." Seriously, this author really doesn't know what a lie is. C33: I wonder how long it'll take for them to remember where he said the water came from. There's no need (as far as they know) to get the water from him instead of the spring. C34: "Yes. It was rather well-spoken. Patron, please continue." lol. If they go to fetch the water, then why do they need to bring it back...? It's not like they know he's done something to it. C42: Speaking as someone who has lived in a place that small before, packages will not be delivered to your door. They'll be delivered to the local post office and it's up to you to periodically check for them. I wonder why those four haven't come to visit him again yet. I'd have expected them to do it just to thank him if nothing else.
