10% of Chinese Farmland Polluted by Heavy Metals

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 6, 2011

This site says that the Chinese admit that 10% of their farmland is contaminated with toxic metals. That is the good news, the bad news is that about 70% of all the juices we drink in America comes from China. The worse news is that all of those fruits leach all of those contaminates from the ground as they believe it to be nutrients.
Our bodies are then left with the obligation to rid themselves of this cancerous stuff that once again the Chinese have distributed upon our doorsteps and which we so longingly wish to purchase.

The ‘Soul of China’

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 6, 2011

Living in China and watching the way they interact on a daily basis is an experience. It is often frightening, but always educational.
My two cents
“Living in China and watching these people is like being a ‘moral surgeon’ and each day being forced to peer into the gaping expanse of a fatally infected wound where the collective soul was wrenched out and the remaining flesh left to decay”

Link to Chinese Innovation Fallcy

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 6, 2011

Here is the author’s conclusion, but his article deserves a read
“In other words, China steals what it wants but cannot produce. Obama and his ilk help the Chinese cut our throats by selling China our debts and absorbing without protest its nationalist antagonism. The proof is found in the patent system, which until recently the Chinese largely ignored as inconvenient. Despite a huge increase in patent applications from China, the director of the Beijing Intellectual Property Institute says that “valid patents in China accounted for less than half of the 6 million patents granted, and two-thirds of the valid patents consisted of design and utility patents.” What this means is that many of the patents are worthless.”

Here is a good idea from THE KING! Who, due to the fact that he came to the ‘big stinky’ China, has been unable to be active on the forums. Here is his ide, which I believe to be spot on!

Idea from “The King”

I’m also have the inspiration of making a video game, about Taxies in china, especially rural, Chinese cities. where they’re REALLY pressed for Cash. For instance, you’re an illerate monkey, mutant faggo boy. You are given a cab, if you let repairs drag on, you can REALLY get REALLY fucked up, (injured, but the costs are expensive substandard), you need to make a quota and thus drive like a dick head, On sidewalks through reds, and if you hit someone, you have a conscience meter if you stay behind, you pay hospital, might get sued, (you can bribe of course). Your conscience meter goes down you start hallcinating demons and ghosts and shit, distracting you and all other mind fucks. (you can also do drugs in this game, because the surrounding landscape of the game won’t be flashy cities that people view Chiense cities as, but depressive, very subhumanly… the real China). You also have a health meter, a stress meter (again if you’re confronted by your conscience through ghosts
, such
as running over a bunch of kids, beating the fuck out of someone for 1 wonjou of cab fair (needed), illeffects of black market drugs (both medicinal and recreational), and of course the ever so prevailent scent of Jenkem. (shit), rotten scents of fat bosses, smelly KTV chicks after a night of “work”, bleeding factory workers, kids taking a dump piss or ADULTS worse in your ratty cab).

The point of the game you can either raise enough money to fuck off to Hong Kong, which the final level will have you try to either SWIM, (if your ill health is strong enough, remember everyone will be smoking even the babies in this game), You fuck off to a US embassy, you are brave enough to make the trek via Underground railroad. (if have a CLEAN conscience, or do enough things to remain “HUMAN”, and take the chance to read religious material (but beware, those who leave them behind could be Reds). Or you bribe enough to form your own company, eventually you kill yourself, when the economy pops, and those you bribed you read about them in the paper (the game over cut screen, or winning cut screen, if you play this ending), You need LOTS of RMB, must have moved alot of drugs, done ALOT of unscruplous things for Red factory bosses. (who again you inherit their business connections, BEFORE the town melts down into anarchy (if you were a particulary BAD boss like say you ran o
ALOT of people, or engaged in alot of EVIL things, the people will lynch you in terrible ways), if you were a nice boss, (You could be “morned” as an alright guy by a very very small circle (remember how paranoid Chiense people really are in reality).

If you retain your soul, and have poor health, you could do lots of ways to escape, China. Some will get you killed, if you for instance sneak out on an airplane you freeze to death, if you, join the PLA become the Primier’s driver, you get killed in the ensuing violence. Or you can raise the necessary money necessary to invest in Canada-America, But this is the hardest way of course. But at least you try to be human…. also there will be a psychology stress bar. If you don’t see it you don’t hear it, is best, but for instance you drive a dying person to the hospital, hit rough traffic, ie a sick kid, and the kid dies in your car of some unholy illness. You can bet your ass, that the mother will kill herself, you read about it, you health bar, goes down, your stress bar goes down, and you have from time to time visions in the mirror of dead passengers. AGain what do you do? Drive on the Sidewalk, drive like a maniac.

To make matters worse, your character is very alcholic prone, and smoke addicted. (well duh,,, they’re Chinese vices). and drug addicted. Driving under the influence, seems to make the scerenery look less shitty, your mood goes up, you get better tips when you’re in a better mood, life is good when you’re drugged, up, but you pay alot, plus you might get caught by the reds, if you don’t have the bribes necessary you’re going away for a long time, when you’re released, you have to cab again…..

Don’t forget oil prices, sinopec loves to waste resources, Alot of effects will have on the supply of oil and fuel which is NECESSARY to your career of Getting ABC. (anywhere but China), and you bet your ass, lot of other peasants, are like that too! They will try to murder you for gas they need to keep going.

To make matters even worse! The you live is gripped by a plague, or the beginnings of one. The sooner you get yourself, your family, passangers, and the sooner you control insects in your house. the sooner it goe…. it won’t go away.

Don’t forget nutjob passangers. Pedestrians… Some might get mad not pay if you take the to the “RIGHT” place, because they’re having some scatter brained phone conversation with a Shoe with their wife they just killed! or something. Or worse yet, ARE YOU the killer lol, and all of this game is truly just a pre execution hallcination? (If you let your sanity meter go down). or are you…… a GHOST? (if you let your depression meter go down, and you decide to off yourself with poison).
