China Sells Pills Made of Dead Baby Flesh

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2012


Big Brew has found a horrible story that shows China at its most natural- scary, inhuman and horrific
From the Big Brewskie…
“Not back into full production yet – where I’ll be scouring the earth for misdeeds by China from high above – but a friend sent me this and it’s too… disgusting… to pass up.

Grab some paper bags to puke into because seriously, this is one of the worst I’ve read about China: it’s like a teenager who’s seen every gory, blood-soaked horror movie in existent, and just when he thinks he numb to everything, some sicko releases a slasher that make the kid hurl as if he’s taking chemo.

“South Korea has seized thousands of smuggled drug capsules filled with powdered flesh from dead babies, which some people believe can cure disease, officials said Monday.

The capsules were made in northeastern China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder, the Korea Customs Service said.

Customs officials refused to say where the dead babies came from or who made the capsules, citing possible diplomatic friction with Beijing. Chinese officials ordered an investigation into the production of drugs made from dead fetuses or newborns last year.

The customs office has discovered 35 smuggling attempts since August of about 17,450 capsules disguised as stamina boosters, and some people believe them to be a panacea for disease, the customs service said in a statement. The capsules of human flesh, however, contained bacteria and other harmful ingredients.

The smugglers told customs officials they believed the capsules were ordinary stamina boosters and did not know the ingredients or manufacturing process.

Ethnic Koreans from northeastern China who now live in South Korea were intending to use the capsules themselves or share them with other Korean-Chinese, a customs official said. They were carried in luggage or sent by international mail.

The capsules were all confiscated but no one has been punished because the amount was deemed small and they weren’t intended for sale, said the customs official, who requested anonymity, citing department rules.

China’s State Food and Drug Administration and its Health Ministry did not immediately respond to questions faxed to them Monday. Chinese media identify northeastern China as the source of such products, especially Jilin province which abuts North Korea.

The Jilin food and drug safety agency is responsible for investigating the trade of such remains there. Calls to the agency and to the information office of Jilin’s Communist Party were not answered Monday.

The South Korean customs agency began investigating after receiving a tip a year ago. No sicknesses have been reported from ingesting the capsules.”

Making China Clean Up-

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2012


Here is an excerpt from an interesting site with a great name

chinasmog.wordpress.com

Excerpt

Before the boom of the Internet, images capturing and facts exposing China’s pollution caused by corporate scandals were hidden due to a lack of technology and heavy censorship of the press.  This changed in 1996, when Nike’s sweatshop scandal was exposed by the NY Times to increase society’s awareness of environmental and human rights in China.  This caused “growing normative pressures on state and non-state actors to” put corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development at a forefront ( Alwyn Lim and Kiyoteru Tsutsui’s paper on Globalization and CSR ).  Over 40 demonstrations occurred at nationwide Niketowns (Emerson, 2011).  Nike’s reputation was destroyed and they responded quickly by employing new sustainable development CSR policies to rebrand themselves

China, Thousands of Years, Not Civilized- Travel Stories

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2012


Here is a great comment from the site below. The commenter went to shanghai, chinas cultural center. If shanghai is bad, imagine what the rest is like…

Comment

I just come back from one month in Shanghai and I can say you are the most rude, uncivilised, uneducated people I EVER SAW.. I just could have kill some of you if I wasn’t in your country. My wife is chinese living in France and she was ashamed as well. Inhumans, full of hate, gold diggers, my god I cannot see any chinese anymore.

I have no solution for you folks, you country is condamned, I repeat there’s no solution for China. You need more than a miracle to become what I call a country.

Modern China have no soul. It has been exctincted. The government is cruel to you, and so are you to each other. Cruelty is a part of the chinese life. Suffering is seen as normal. China is hell, populated by dead walking bodies.. I saw very few humans over there. I will never forget what you are, how you treated me. I had no anger against you untill now, I travelled a lot and saw a lot of shit, but sorry, you are the worst people I’ve met.

I will past the rest of my life speaking against you. The world is yet very naive and has to know you.

You can continue your shit, eating dog testicles and penis, even tiger penis for you rich wannashow, you can continue all this thinking you’re the upcomming force. You’re nothing.

I just could have slapped 100 of you. Your males are almost all cowards. I don’t fear any of you..

I’m sorry but I just hate you.

Pig Faces And Rude Chinese Tourists

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2012


When I travel long distances, I remember my abc’s, anywhere but china. I fly from somewhere else instead of enduring hell on earth with a plane full of these people. The last time I saw a guy strip to the waist and change, and virtually all of them cackle and cough like they have emphysema .

Here is an excerpt of how much fun the Chinese can be

SINGAPORE — There was near-pandemonium at the L’Oréal cosmetics counter. With only hours before the end of their weeklong National Day holiday this month, a busload of package tourists from China descended on a department store here and began clamoring for all the skin refiner wrinkle de-crease” they could buy

Karen Eu, one of three clerks attending to them and herself of Chinese ancestry, opened her eyes wide in exasperation.

“Oh, my God,” she said as she carried another fistful of Chinese yuan to the cash register. “They talk so loud I have to yell until my throat hurts.”

“…in July when a group of more than 300 from China took umbrage at illustrations of a pig’s face on their check-in vouchers at a casino resort in predominantly Muslim Malaysia.

Although the resort said the drawings were meant only to distinguish their Chinese guests from Muslims, who cannot eat pork – or gamble – the Chinese demonstrated their pique by staging a sit-in in the hotel lobby and belting out their national anthem. It took 40 police officers with dogs to clear them out.

While some analysts say China’s tourists have dubious benefits to regional tourism,

Boon Sang Lip, a souvenir stand operator, put it more bluntly: “They like to talk in a loud and not-very-polite way,” he said as a group of tourists from Xian in China mobbed his assistant for lighters in the shape of Singapore’s emblem, the mythical half-lion, half-fish Merlion.

When they check into hotels, for instance, many tourists from China demand the top floors, Lim said. Some feel entitled to take souvenirs like hotel pillows, he said.

Chinese Hair Care Products and Chewbacca

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2012


After a good scrub of my hair and some Chinese cleansing product, I know look like a freaking Wookie.

I have heard that the Chinese put carcinogens into their shampoo, so I guess I should be happy with the minor damage I’ve suffered.

Booger Picking President

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 8, 2012


This guy who looks like Dr Zayas from the Planet of the Apes, was once the king chicom thug, ie president and leader of the communist party. The guy shows how worldly he is by probing his brain housing unit and nasal passages in front of the camera.

China, so much time and so little civilization…
