Chinese HaHa

Here is a hilarious post from uncle chicom. The article is about corruption and how uncle red has been chasing it down and winning. In addition to this, the article, which I read in its entirety, goes on to proclaim how China uses the rule of law and helps all of its citizens. After breaking my assbone from laughing so hard I was like WTF?
I mean its ok for me to complain more now, my sites blocked in China anyway. Interesting digression. WTF would they block my site? Do they think that Johnny Wang does not know how fked the government is and that corruption is endemic? If anything, mr W knows fifty times more than I. It should be I who is blocked from enjoying his blog shouldn’t it?
Anyway, I am bored now. I am happy that I will soon be getting a Kindle fire and some other goodies from the land of perpetual happiness- USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poor Chinese Welds

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 31, 2011


These photos are of tacks or quick welds at the one site I showed a bit ago. Due to scads of people it is near impossible to get a perfect shot, but you can see the weld is not being run at the right settings. There is burn and splatter. Some may say that it is only a tack thus less important and I would say of the ten or fifteen welds I have seen at this site, only two or three look safe.

Photos of China’s Swill Oil

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 31, 2011


China has this stuff called gutter oil or swill oil. Swill oil is nothing less than oil that is removed from the plates and bowls of restaurants and then sieved and resold. The stuff is rancid and dank and although cigarette butts have been skimmed off. it is deadly with aflotoxin.
These containers shown here are omnipresent in China. They contain swill oil, or so I was told. The containers will be taken to a place then ‘purified’ meaning take out the large clumps of crap and repackage it as new.
