Understanding China, One Blog at a Time

An American in China

All You Ever Needed To Know About China in alone Post!

This gem comes from the BrewMan. It is a comprehensive list showing just how much China sucks.
My hat goes off to the BrewMan and thanks a ton.
I am compiling all of this to put I
Into a special document….
From the King Of Brews!!!

All rise, cuz this is dank!

The BrewMan speaketh

Ahhh…. the “official” start of summer is nearly here, I’m stoked. Today is a very special day for this blog, for WT’s readers – and you too, King. The vision of this screen will forever be burned in your eyeballs with a permanent white phosphorus burn. This is a day when Beijing’s sludge – and China’s for that matter – piles up higher as the entire country – man, woman, child, elderly… dog, pig and cow – simultaneously shits themselves as if they died; it’ll be of biblical proportions; China will wish she mandated everyone to wear double titanium depends, not crap with napkin absorbancy.

Here it is, a partial viewing of the pride & joy of the Brewskie vault: where I keep tucked away truck loads of material on China’s dodgy infrastructure. Be warned: this doesn’t even comprise my entire collection – I have SHIT LOADS more material tucked away!!! Another “special day” will come around some time, you’ll see.

Isn’t this scary?
