Ass Pants in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 28, 2013


This is a Chinese innovation from way back. It is open assed pants that kids use instead of diapers. The kids just literally squat to pee and poop where and whenever they want. It is a filthy habit.

China is Burning

Muslims in Xinjiang are being fired upon, Tibetans jailed and or killed and to those in the west it is just another day. The next time you go to Wal Mart pick up a book about the Dali Lama or read about Mao. Better yet visit this place and you will never again buy anything made in China.

Beijing’s Crazy Air Pollution Hits 500 pm 2.5

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 28, 2013


Civilized countries created a thing called pm 2.5 to measure tiny and harmful pollutants in the air. These particles cause cancer, asthma, emphysema and a host of other things. A pm 2.5 of 50 is borderline ok. Beijing today has a pm 2.5 of 500, or ten times the acceptable level.

I think I will save my lungs by connecting a hose to the exhaust of a car and breathing that. It will be much safer than huffing Chinese air.

This is broad daylight in Beijing.
