Death From Above- Chinese Made Airbus Grounded

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 3, 2011


WTF are we thinking? They allow China to make an airbus ? Not surprisingly the behemoth was grounded before it could fly. Lets be reasonable, if these people cannot make and maintain an elevator, then how in the heck can we trust them with super jumbos?
As a world we have to be the most ignorant species if we have not learned that the Chinese, just like toddlers, should be kept away from sharp objects, fire, machinery and nukes. In addition, although they deserve a pat on their collect heads for the effort, their government keeps them down.

But really, making a super jumbo in China?

HAHAHAAH Hu Jin Tao

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 3, 2011


I am laughing my ass off! Did you just see the news of the G20 with all the world leaders? Obama was pimping like he was ready to hit a spliff then shoot some hoops, but the really funny scene was the Chinese leader hu Jin tao.

in true Chinese fashion, he stood out like a turd in a punch bowl. While all the other leaders seemed to enjoy themselves, HJT looked like a little boy who had just shit his pants before a class photo.

He waited till all the others moved to do so himself and completely looked out of his element. In all honesty I kinda felt sorry for the guy….

US Report Admits Widespread Chinese Hacking

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 3, 2011


The US government finally ‘manned up’ well not really. What I mean is that a report admitted that the Chinese are hacking the shit out of us, but Obama and crew have done litttle to nothing about it. ““Chinese actors are the world’s most active and persistent perpetrators of economic espionage,” it added. “Russia’s intelligence services are conducting a range of activities to collect economic information and technology from U.S. targets.”
Here is the artie…

Chinese Truth

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 3, 2011


Great quote from here The Party-new11 (Richard Mcgregor)
“Can we allow the era of opening and reform to remove us from power and replace us with the capitalist classes? That absolutely won’t work. We can’t push the anti-corruption campaign indefinitely. For who else can the regime depend on for support but the great masses of middle-level cadres? If they are not given some advantages, why should they dedicate themselves to the regime? They give their unwavering support to the regime because they get benefits from the system. Corruption makes our political system more stable.”

Pain in the Ass- China Even Faking Toilet Paper

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 3, 2011


I have to reconsider what I thought about Chinese creativity. Sure I said that the last thing they invented only benefited the cavemen (fire) and since then, they have been in a protracted slump, but perhaps I was a bit hasty in the judgement.

This source has shown that the Chinese are pirating toilet paper….wtf? Yeah, it says they are faking it. my question is just how much money and profit there is in fake Kleenex? For instance, a butt load of it costs a few dollars and the raw materials have to consume a bit of this, add in manpower and how much can you clear on a couple of rolls?

The squeamish side of me is worried that this TP may be a WMD or something like swill oil, a thing they ‘recycle with chinese characterisics’ ie simply reuse….
