China, the land of perennial quality problems and a moral dilemma has decided to earmark 23 million us dollars towards nuke safety. They must feel confident about that as they manage to piss away tens of millions on projects like golden toilets, largest toilets ill-fated sex themed parks etc. It is funny what they will do to save face here.

Comment on one person’s experience with this country and eating dogs, from the king…
“I honestly though that this whole eating cats and dogs thing was just a myth….. I was wrong…while visiting Rongxin a rural mountain city in Guangxi, oh the terrible ways the bbq dogs died, alive, and in agony. At least kill them first don’t burn them alive you sick fucks. It breaks my heart that my relatives mutated into such beasts, (rongxing being the county city that the village is attached to).”

China and Vietnam Pissed About Islands

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 14, 2011


China daily
BEIJING – China on Tuesday condemned the recent actions taken by Vietnam on the Nansha Islands, saying they constituted an encroachment upon China’s territorial sovereignty.
“China has indisputable sovereignty over the Nansha Islands and their adjacent waters,” said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu during a regular press briefing.
Her comments came in response to a question concerning Vietnam’s recent holding of elections for so-called “National Assembly deputies” and “People’s Council representatives” on the Nansha Islands.
“Any one-sided action taken by any country on the Nansha Islands is illegal and invalid,” said Jiang, adding that the elections infringe on China’s territorial sovereignty and sovereign rights and are not in line with the spirit of the Declaration of Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC).
The DOC was signed in 2002 as a code of conduct for all parties involved in diplomatic issues in the South China Sea.
Signatories to the DOC agreed to settle disputes over territory in the South China Sea through friendly coordination and negotiation, and to exercise self-restraint in the conduct of activities that would complicate or escalate disputes and affect peace and stability in the region.”

Arcades have died off along long time ago in North America, with the advent of Blizzard games, porn, or mp3s, and the xbox.
