"... There are far far far more than 1,600 theaters..."
There were less than 1,600 urban theaters in China during the relevant time period. See the above link to "critical failure of FMCN" and you will see that the data is provided on an official Chinese government website.
"...the 27,000 number was how many screens they had installed ..."
You show that you have not even read FMCN's material. FMCN has now changed its message and says that the number, "27,164," refers to advertisements purchased. Like I said, you have been and are bluffing. (BTW, there were less than 4,100 screens in China during the relevant time period. See link in previous post.)
"I've been living in China for over 10 years. Not business trips, not vacations, but actual straight out living here. You have no idea what you are talking about."
I'm not sure what you have to do with this. Math is math. Everyone needs self-esteem, and there are a lot of positive ways to achieve that , but there is just no resume in all of human existence that can alter what belongs on the other side of a mathematical equation. 27,000 theaters claimed > 1,600 theaters actually existing = a Lie. Even if you spend more years in China, I still do not think your resume can convert this to a truth. You're setting yourself up for disappointment.
