Here is an excerpt from the chinadaily. The chinese are …well. lets just say that the death grip they can put on a jiao which is equal to about 1/100th of a penny, is scary. These people will dumpster dive for a penny. So, it should come as no surprise to anyone that when some promotional event in China decided to toss 1 RM to 50 RMB notes into the crowd, that a frenzy ensued and the event had to be brought to a halt.One old timer got her dentures knocked out of her mouth in the melee. The Chinese would probably tell her that it’s a dog eat dog world and what does she expect, after all they were fighting for the equivalent of a quarter…..

The event caused thousands of people to scramble for the falling money, which was made up of both 5 yuan and 10 yuan notes… Hundreds more people gathered below as the 5 and 10 yuan notes were swapped….as people rushed to grab the money, dozens were smashed down on the ground or the wall….An old woman said tearfully: “It’s too crazy. My false teeth have been knocked out.”
