Representin’, Trust and Crappy Chinese Goods

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 9, 2012


All countries have sources of pride. Places like Mexico have beautiful weather and the pyramids. Brazil has incredible beaches and even more incredible women, aside from that , they play some mean soccer and are monsters at Jim jitsu. Sometimes enjoying oneself or fitting in is easy and other times not.

When going to foreign lands, we often try to represent’ or go local. It’s an insecure reaction based on the need to fit in. Sometimes, however, it’s worth the effort. Eat anything from la Huasteca in Mexico, or enchiladas from SanLuis Potosi, and you are in heaven. Other times, you must fib a bit, as when you choke down some feijoada, a Brazilian ‘delicacy’ that tastes like decay.

No matter what you do, however, the locals wil be thrilled. Chaw on some coca leaves in Bolivia and a coalla, or indigenous will be thrilled. Marvel at the stretch of beaches that hug Rio, and the cariocas will teem with pride.

Try the same in china and see what happens.

For instance, choke down some milk and the Chinese are like, wtf? I don’t even drink that crap.

Try to go local by purchasing some Chinese shoes and days later when the soles are flapping against your feet the Chinese are like, ” why would you buy Chinese made goods? Even I, with limited intellect and income , buy foreign whenever I can.”

Slowly but surely you come to the realization that the Chinese are right. Chinese products suck.

Most non-chinese companies want to maximize profits, but they do it within sane , or civil parameters. For instance, they may try to maximize their fiscal inflow while providing the safest product possible. But not china. Here, as highlighted by Brewskies article on Chinese steel, the Chinese have no boundaries. If maximizing profits means including no protein in milk but adding poison or leather, then so be it. If a penny can be earned by reducing the diameter of steel by 50 percent, then what’s the harm? If you are dumb enough to buy from them, then you deserve it, they conclude.

What most humans do not understand is that the Chinese are in a race against time. They think the place will implode, and even if it does not, they are not so ignorant that they do not know the air, the fake food, and the other Chinese are killing them, and the only solution is to escape.

Consequently, they will do whatever it takes to get out and if poisoning or killing you is a by-product of their actions, then so be it. Why did you trust them in the first place? After all, they don’t even trust the Chinese.

If you disagree with this logic, then buy Chinese goods, you deserve them.

Half Steel Sold For Chinese Construction Fails Quality Tests

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 9, 2012


This comes from the Master of the Midwest, I have nothing to offer but a fk u China.

The BrewMan

Several months ago I posted a link to a slew of accidents occurring on Shanghai’s subway system to hell; well, it appears the whore of the orient, as all of China has, has sold out her buildings’ structural integrity for the price of a 5-minute quickie – HALF of steel sold on wholesale markets used for construction failed quality tests: and these are Chinese quality tests, ones that say, “Cool. Your PDD kid is gifted as the sweet gold mines of patent piles we possess; forward the 12-year-old terrets ‘tard to college.”

http://shanghaiscrap.com/2008/03/avoid-tall-buildings/

“So I must say I was more than a little surprised when my beloved Shanghai Daily ran a story – this morning – containing this jaw-dropping revelation:

HALF the steel material sold at wholesale markets and now being used in construction has failed quality tests.

The Shanghai Industrial and Commercial Administrative Bureau inspected 52 batches of steel material at three markets and 15 construction sites in seven districts, including Xuhui, Zhabei and Baoshan, and officials said 27 batches had quality problems.

There are – according to the story – a couple of problems: the steel was often too light (five times too light, in one case) to meet construction standards; 48% of the tested steel lacked sufficient carbon content, rendering the material dangerously brittle; and 22% of the tested products failed tension tests.

[…]

“What’s most disturbing is that this is not a new issue. Overseas buyers of Chinese structural steel and other ferrous products have long known that Chinese manufactured steel typically doesn’t meet the quality (and chemistry) standards of foreign countries. But I think even the foreign importers would be shocked to learn that Chinese steelmakers are perfectly content selling substandard structural steel into Shanghai’s construction markets. So let me be the first to state: This isn’t just bad business; it’s immoral. And what’s even worse is that the steelmakers know full well that they can get away with it, and have been doing so for years. According to Xinhua:

Officials said building inspection does not include measuring weight and thickness for steel at present, which allows manufacturers to lower the standard.

No surprise, the Shanghai Industrial and Commercial Administrative Bureau won’t identify the companies who manufacture the sub-standard steel. Most likely, those companies are state-owned; but even if they’re private, they have powerful friends (no other way to stay in that business, after all). It would be nice to know, of course, but it would be even nicer to know which building construction projects were tested, and whether they were allowed to continue (I bet they were) with the understanding that they would utilize steel that meets the Bureau’s quality tests. And, of course, as someone who frequents Shanghai’s buildings, I’d like to know which ones were built with steel from the sub-standard steel mills. But I’m not holding my breath.
