    Re: Zhou Chu who eliminated the three calamities. (A story from ancient China.)

    Say:

    I meant to say that the tiger appeared to to Zhou Chu accidentally.

    The tiger just happened to be where Zhou Chu wa looking.

    The word "accidentally" doesn't work here. And the tiger just didn't know Zhou Chu was there.

    Say:

    Maybe it's an exaggerations. In some Chinese stories the arrow can even go through stone. By the way, Zhou Chu uses his bare hands to kill the tiger in the latest version of the story.

    Might as well go whole hog. (Not only can he hold his breath underwater as long as a crocodile can, but he can also kill a tiger with his bare hands.)
