Fuzzy Chinese Logic and Her Problems

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


From The Party- (Richard Mcgregor)
The Party makes sure the great famine is officially referred to as a ‘difficult period lasting three years’, as though politics had nothing to do with it. (In the eighties and earlier, the official term was the ‘three years of natural disaster’.) It admits that the Cultural Revolution, which followed soon after, in 1966, and lasted for ten years, contained disastrous mistakes, but then twists the debate to its advantage by asserting that the Party is the only organ that can prevent such instability in the future.

Barack Obama- Constitution Crusher, Reblog

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


Here is a great reblog from loadingdata.nl about Barak the O.

And before you read it and default to “hey you don’t like BO ‘cuz he’s black…”. No, I don’t like him because he sucks or is woefully inadequate. And before you then go to, “But he’s better than Bush.” Yeah, we all know what a high standard that man set for all ensuing prez’s. Bottom line, most of them suck, just some suck more. Anyway, this guy is posting about Barak Obama mocking the Constitution…

Reblog from this site….

In his speech sen. Obama clearly states that U.S. con­sti­tu­tion pro­tects it’s cit­i­zens from “being grabbed by the gov­ern­ment” with­out due process, because peo­ple can be wrong, the gov­ern­ment can make mis­takes in iden­ti­fy­ing the per­pe­tra­tor. More­over, he calls this a mock­ing of the constitution. So it was very sur­pris­ing that Obama, once elected as pres­i­dent, not only makes a 180° turn, but greatly sur­passes this basic premise by autho­riz­ing the assas­si­na­tion of U.S. cit­i­zens based on the sus­pi­cion of ter­ror­ism

Comparing Penis Size, Happiness and Other Things Across China, the USA and Other Countries

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


This site has a great article comparing average penis size and IQ across countries. In the post, they reference a website found here (its called targetmap.com), which allows you to compare really cool and different things across countries. Thus, after reading what this site had done, I decided to make some comparisons of my own. (btw you will have to click here to see how the size of one’s package and IQ equate, as I won’t steal his thunder).
My Study was more academic and I wished to see if there was a correlation between such things as the size of one’s manhood, the average breast size of the women, the quality of education and overall happiness of the country.
In the maps, for the sake of consistency, I have redrawn the happiness ranking on each one. So, for instance, if you look at education you will see the US kicks ass in education and is fairly happy etc.
Some general observations:
Africans while hung like Brahma bulls, dont seem to be well educated and apparently are unhappy with the small breasted women they are surrounded by and pathetic schools.
Chinese while hanging a ‘babies thumb’ are some of the lesser endowed or more ‘mini men’ in the sample. They appear to be miserable, it is uncertain whether that is due to their small chested women, mediocre education or small ‘man tools’.
Americans while better than the the chintzy chinese, do not fair as well as the African pack of Thunder love and the European night sticks. They do, however seem to be happy with the excellent education and woman with large mammary glands.
Brazilians have it all but good education, their women’s chests come in at the middle, and although they have crappy education, they still can lay wood.
Europeans ooops, call me ethnocentric but I didn’t give you folks any smiley faces, but your hanging better than the yanks but maybe below the Aussies, and are happy because your ‘shorties’ -women, have nice guns.
Australians are like the Brazilians of the white world so see above.
Asia….. ummm judge for yourself.

Ultra-Contagious Pink Eye in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


My pink eye seems to be on the retreat which makes me happy. Lately I have been in hiding as I understand it is a pretty contagious disease. A friend reminded me of that fact and I assured them that yes, I have been washing my hands, not touching my eyes and not touching others as well.My Chinese friend then looked at me and sternly quipped, “NO that’s not all, you cant even stare at people.”
” i was like ????”
She goes, “If you look at them like this.” then stared at me, “You can also pass this illness on to them.”

Hmmm, I was like “So I can basically radiate this to them with no contact whatsoever, merely by the power of my gaze?”
She nodded, said her doctor said it was true, and a bbs corroborated it as well.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, this coming from a country where doctors tell you that “you have fire inside” and that is how you got it in the first place…(see previous post)

Return of the Red Guards- China Cracking Down on Wanton Capitalism

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


In a move taken from the Chinese playbook of the 60’s, uncle chicom wants to keep the masses, or ‘peasants’ as the Chinese ever so politely call them, happy. Beijing is supposeldy going to prohibit ads for luxury items, as these things are scandalous or show the evil capitalistic ways of the west, or so they say. In reality, the move is probably that they want to preserve order and with all the turmoil in the middle east and such, uncle chicom doesn’t want to remind the average farmer in China just how crappy his life is and how low he has sunk in comparison to his ‘comrades’ who whiz by in expensive toys……

from here
Beijing’s communist government, faced with a widening gap between rich and poor, moved to make the issue less visible by banning outdoor advertising that promotes lavish lifestyles in the Chinese capital.

Promoting “hedonism, lavishness and the worship of foreign things” on outdoor advertisements such as billboards will be prohibited in Beijing by April 15, the city’s Administration for Industry and Commerce said in a statement on its Website. Ads that are in “poor taste,” contain vulgar language and advocate “aristocratic lifestyles” will also be banned.

Chinese Try to Return ‘Radiation Proof Salt’- Stores Say ‘No Way’

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 25, 2011


Chinese bought tons of iodized salt becasue they thought it could ward off the harmful effects of the Japanese problem, but they were wrong. Now they are returning the salt and want their money back, the stores have told them to shove it…

from here
“Customers who purchased large amounts of salt in the belief that it could help ward off the harmful effects of radiation are now asking for a refund. Meanwhile, some Shanghai residents who bought salt at higher prices were asking for their money back on Friday (Mar. 18).
Guangdong province has also seen more than 420 cases filed by customers complaining of abnormally high salt prices.

Shanghai mayor Han Zheng had said earlier that city authorities would punish traders found hoarding and pushing up salt prices. At least 12 cases of illegal price increases were reported during inspections over the past two days, according to the Shanghai Development and Reform Commission.
