Beijing Bomb Blast

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 8, 2011


There is no official take on what precipitated the bomobing in Beijijng a few days ago. Some say it’s nothing more than an act of revenge. Last year we had a bombing in Beijing and the unofficial word was that the perpertrator had it in for foreigners.
The problem is that as the world ecnomies tank we will see more unrest, look at London now and similar events in the USA. We need to get the global ecnomies back on track so we can all relax….

Reality of Chinese Construction

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 8, 2011


I get to travel a wee bit here in the land of edible air , so I get to see the reality of Chinese cities, their health and how they cities operate, like performing open heart surgery on a place. With our tweezers of knowledge we probe into the infected ventricles and valves and see just how long this monstrosity can last.
One of the things that struck me is how heartily the government has taken up the cause of developing land and and buildings. As a way to boost GDP the Chinese have finished building the largest cities and are now constructing edifices in the most remote regions of China. They will leave no stone unturned.
There are many issues with this, not the least of which is the bubble the will cause, but others have covered this extensively. Thus, I will just bash them over the head for shitty construction.
It’s true, take it from me. I’ve been a whirlwind tour of the south and central regions and China, true to form has constructed city upon city of identical structures. Thats right, identical, right down to the last unpounded nail. You can go from Lang Fang to Inner Mongolia and see the same landscape.
But they are commies, you may say, to which I’d smack your chops. They are communists, I’d correct.
And just because they are communists, does not mean that they do not need to learn from their mistakes. For instance, my building, much like a woman from China, is relatively young but has that dreary and worn out look of of ill-construction, rush jobs and Mao notes diverted to the pockets to too many one mistake grand kids (party members).
Thus I have to laugh when I visit a ‘new’ hotel in which the bare wires are exposed, the lights don’t work and the concrete is flaking like the scalp of those with whom I ride the morning subway. It’s such a sham to see the beautiful edifice and inside its got the structural integrity of a cotton ball. The locals, being locals know nothing of this and feel oh so fortunate to have a really keen place to vacation. I just shake my head and sip on a Starbucks latee and wait for my man tits to get bigger.

This vid comes from the king and shows a Chinese person on a Canadian train.I can only imagine what is happening ( I am in China so cannot watch it) but I assume it has to do with rude behaviour and irresponsiblity. (thanks King O)

Boobs in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 8, 2011


Most Chinese women are full in the ‘obstinate’ category and light in the area above the navel and below the neck. In order to rectify this problem, they’ve taken to plastic surgery.
Mao hated revisionism, which is a like a form of corrective surgery on the ‘truth of the past’.

If China went back to their cultural revolution days whereby people were punished for revisionist ideas, would women who got boob jobs be made to undergo struggle sessions and prance around their little villages with placards saying, I’m a dumb cow?
