Jing Yong’s fault ~ 金庸的错

A variety show hosted by popular Taiwanese host Zhang Xiao Yan.

One of the questions was as follows: Multiple Choice Question. Gunpowder is discovered by Taoist priests while practicing alchemy. May I know when did we start having fireworks?

Me: Song Dynasty!
Uncle: As if you know the answer that well. Are you sure it date back that long?! Shouldn’t it be nearer, like Qing Dynasty or something?

Me: Song Dynasty! Because I remembered that in Jin Yong’s Return of the Condor Heroes, Yang Guo had arranged a firework performance during the Beggers’ meeting at Xiang Yang City to celebrate Guo Xiang’s birthday! If this is the wrong answer, then it is Jin Yong’s fault!

记得题目之一:选择题。火药是道士在炼丹之时意外发明的。请问几时开始有烟花呢?

我:宋朝!
大叔:说得好象真的一样。有那么早吗?!应该是清朝吧?!
我:宋朝啦!因为我记得金庸在《神雕侠侣》中,杨过在襄阳的丐帮大会,当众放烟花为郭襄祝寿的!如果是清朝,那就是金庸的错了!
