China’s Xiaomi Phone Spying for Beijing

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 30, 2014

The communist party has its hands in everything in China. Here we see that even phones used outside of China are sending your data to a communist group charged with muzzling the net and free speech.


The Xiaomi Redmi Note has been a very popular product for the manufacturer. Consider that the device is a 5.5 inch phablet powered by the true octa-core MT6592 chip produced by MediaTek, and is priced at the equivalent of $130 USD. But a new report indicates that those who purchased the device might be unwillingly sending photos and texts to a server in Beijing, China.

A Xiaomi Redmi Note user in Hong Kong claims that his device has connected with an IP address in China, that was receiving content from his phone such as photos and texts. This transfer of data took place when the Redmi Note owner was on Wi-Fi. And even rooting the phone and flashing it with different firmware didn’t solve the issue.

Pictures from “Media Storage,” and texts, are being sent to the server. And lest you think that it is Xiaomi’s cloud service backing up data, the manufacturer’s MiCloud feature was turned off when this was happening. Who has control over this mysterious server in China? If you are the suspicious type, you might be thinking that the Chinese government is behind the company listed as owning the IP address. As pointed out by one of our loyal readers, looking up the owner website reveals the information that “CNNIC is the administrative agency responsible for Internet affairs under the Ministry of Information Industry of the People’s Republic of China. It is based in the Zhongguancun high tech district of Beijing.”

The bottom line is that owners of the Xiaomi Redmi Note need to be careful about the content that they are keeping on their phones.

Article Explaining Why Chinese Women Dislike Chinese Men

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 26, 2014

Anyone who has spent time in hell,

Has undoubtedly noticed how utterly plain the Chinese are. Of course kindness is a virtue of mine and I am stretching the adjective ‘plain’ to its utter limits. The women are built like boys and the men like women but with larger breasts and butts. Neither soap nor deodorant grace the pocked flesh of either species and halitosis is their favorite mouthwash. What they lack in hygiene and looks they make up for in brutality and a sharp tongue.

While sitting with Chinese colleagues at a local cesspool, restaurant, I ask them just why it is that the Chinese are so fugly. I dare them to look around and identify one looker in the bunch. Their eyes are met with visions of ham fisted locals slopping noodles, rice and rat meat cum ‘steak’ into their rancid maws all the while screeching into their cell phones.

They say the sight is just ‘normal’ Chinese.

‘Proves my point,’ I quip.

Thousands of years of separation from real humans has left the Chinese with no options. They had to take Chinese men. Not that Chinese women are anything special, unless you admire underarm hair, indian corn colored misshapen teeth that DiVinci could,not set right, and conversation which revolves around purchasing things and loathsome self comparisons to her ‘friends’ , as loose as that word is defined here.

In a word, Chinese women are less than average. Unfortunately for them, the men are worse. As I said, for thousands of year the Chinese women have had no choice and were stuck with boar skulled men to whom kidney punches are foreplay. All of that has begun to change, however.

Now that humans are allowed into this dump, the women have reached an epiphany, the men are pretty skank. Due to an excess of 30 million men here, the women have an elevated sense of self and their ‘beauty’, but have a good handle on the opposite sex. They now realize that ‘men’ with the shoulder width of an Ipad are not worthy of that term. In addition, ‘frail’ is a term better used for fine China than for the hands of one’s mate.

Unfortunately for the women, there are too few foreigners here. Thus, about 659,945,000 of them must marry a local. But then again, that is about 659,945,950 more Chinese women than those who truly deserve a foreign guy.

My fingers ache so the rant is over but check this out. An article on how fetid the Chinese women think that the man swamp here is.

“The concept that “men are superior to women” had dominated Chinese society for millenniums until the founding of New China in 1949, after which Chairman Mao Zedong declared that, “women hold up half the sky”.

However, a recent article, belittling the image of Chinese men, on Tianya Community, a very popular domestic social network website,

Titled “Women in Shanghai streets are obviously at a higher level than men”, the posting on Tianya says: “China’s men nowadays are either poorly dressed or ill-behaved, compared with the fashionable, graceful and attractive female partners alongside them … None of the Chinese men are comfortable-looking.” Opinions expressed by netizens who think likewise follow the posting.

(Fashionable Chinese women?? Where?)

This is not the first time that Chinese men’s image has been smeared. In 2003, Yan Lieshan, an essayist, wrote an article saying: “Chinese women, either female migrant workers in ordinary clothes or well-dressed office-going women, are all in good shape, but Chinese men extensively have a lackluster face, dry hair and puzzled eyes … Seldom does one meet a Chinese man with a fit build and gentle demeanor … thus Chinese men are not worthy of Chinese women.”

Chinese men suffered another blow when surveys conducted by a Shanghai-based researcher echoed Yan’s views on Chinese men. Since 2007 Zhang Jiehai, a psychologist with Shanghai’s Academy of Social Sciences, has conducted several surveys on “Chinese men in the eyes of Western women” and the results have been similarly disappointing. According to his surveys, most Western women believe Chinese men pay very little attention to their appearance, including their clothes, hairstyle, figure and demeanor. As a result, Western women take no interest in Chinese men.”

Funny Rant by Mylaowai

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 26, 2014

This post is old, but hilarious nonetheless. It comes from mylaowai.com who is not blogging as much as he used to. Go back and read his older stuff especially around 2008. It has to be some of the funniest online content I have read.


Right, so it’s Christmas time back in the civilised world. Lucky you. I imagine you are enjoying being with people who don’t want to steal everything you own and then expel you. Or who don’t look at your pets with recipes in mind. You may even have received gifts, or have given them away yourselves. I can only imagine how nice that must be. What’s the weather like there? Winter or summer, I bet you can at least see the far side of the street without the smog getting in the way, right? Of course, it’s not easy for everyone at Christmas time – many families will have people in the armed forces away, for example. But look on the bright side: at least they are not about to go to war with Japan / the Philippines / Taiwan / Vietnam / India / Malaysia / Australia / the United States. Continue

Why Chinese Women Prefer Foreign. Men in a Picture

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 24, 2014

Chinese women who, blessed with hexagonal teeth, pustule like chests and dragon breath, are fed up with Chinese men. I assume telescope length glass perched atop smuxhed jello like noses is part of the reason. Aside from this, it may be that the defining characteristic of such ‘men’ is how little they resemble that word.

Men, for instance, have testosterone, a muscular frame and nuts. Chinese quasi males, on the other hand, teeter along on darning needles balancing on feet no larger than than an hangnail. When competing on wingspan, they lose to a common house moth and in chest cavity are lesser than a kitten. And these are their strong suits.

Perhaps the photo below exemplifies why Chinese women do not want their men. In the Darwinian world of survival of the species, Chinese dudes are soon to be an endangered breed.

China Has Bubonic Plague

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 23, 2014

I guess you can’t use public transportation as a toilet and eat rat meat without some blowback. China hygiene challenges have caught up to them

China has the Bubonic plague and sequestered over 100 people. Not to worry though, I’m sure that Chinese guy sitting next to on your international,flight is healthy as a horse.

Just to be on the safe side, however, perhaps you may wish to skip that flight or use preventative measures instead..

Excerpt- link
Health concerns keeping you from visiting China? I know what you are thinking, with air the color of morning coffee, is it safe to breathe in China?

Well, no it is not. But if you are only here for a couple of weeks, what the heck. The human body is very adaptable and within a few days your case of Beijing black lung will be downgraded to bronchitis or chronic asthma.

If its not the air, then maybe you are worried about the food. Chinese innovation being what it is, rat meat is sold for lamb, eggs made from plaster and the rice impregnated with cadmium and lead. But once again, after returning home your body will adapt. Those mind numbing headaches will subside to a minor pounding, but the ringing in your ears you will just have to get used to.

The good news is that all those health issues are relegated to nothingness based on the latest made in China disaster.

China has the bubonic plague.

I guess when hygiene is relegated to somebody else’s problem, China was a disaster in the making and so it is. The black plague has struck.

Now before you go canceling your tickets to the middle kingdom, consider that only 160 people have been quarantined for the disease and so far it has been confined to one specific location….

Peng Liyuan Steals a Baby

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 21, 2014

Ever the strong first she commie, Peng Liyuan is shown here doing her civic duty and ridding a family of their ‘spare kid’.

Yeah, China still considers it a crime for parents to choose how many offspring they will have. There is a one baby limit.

In all honesty, however, I think China should implement a no child policy…

Russia Downs Airplane , China Dogs the USA

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 21, 2014

How funny is this?

Great example of how China’s mass is warping the moral reality in which we live. China has a policy of non intervention in the affairs of other nations. All China wants to do is make a buck, without worrying about those nasty things called human rights. This makes sense due to China’s on-going war against the unborn, religion, foreign firms and the marginalized.

China is loathe to condemn or even hint that Russia may have had a hand in downing a Malaysian aircraft. This makes sense insofar as China’s besties are those thugs championing the global tailspin towards a world with dictatorial thugs, such as the ones who lead us into to WW2. Of course China still calls that event ‘The battle against Japanese invasion’. Yes, the Chinese fail to recognize the time frame of the Second World War as anything more than a period when Japan invaded China. Other than that, nothing much was happening around the globe. Shockingly enough, I have been in class with Chinese who seem startled at this revelation.

Beijing rhetoric has it that the communist party ran off the Japanese, a thing many Chinese apparently belivpieve.

Chinese Mysogyny-Bigger Parking Spaces for Women ‘cuz they Can’t Drive

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 19, 2014

China waged a several thousand year war on women. Baby girls are called maggots in the rice because they were of no use to the family. They are treated like toys on the best of days and slaughtered on the worst.

Now a Chinese city has even made bigger parking spots for women because ‘they cannot drive’.

Part of me wants to deride them for their ability to hate females, but calling them bad drivers is much better then making a national sport of aborting them in the womb.

The parking spaces outside a Chinese shopping mall are distinctive: marked out in pink, signposted “Respectfully reserved for women”, and around 30 centimetres wider than normal.
The slots at the Dashijiedaduhui — or “World Metropolis” — centre have sparked debate in China, which officially embraces gender equality but where old-fashioned sexism is rife in reality.
The mall, in the centre of the northern port city of Dalian, has little to distinguish itself from thousands of other retail complexes that have sprouted across the country as part of a vast urbanisation drive.
It boasts chain clothing stores, fast food franchises, glass lifts, a cinema and the inevitable Starbucks, a favourite hangout of China’s new middle class.
Unusually, though, the 10 spaces outside the main entrance were provided after women had trouble parking in the standard basement slots, managers said.
“I think this is very convenient,” said user Yong Mei. “Other parking spaces are too narrow.”

“It’s not gender biased,” she told AFP. “It’s just that women have a few issues with vision when parking.”
But outraged commentators on Chinese social media accused the mall managers of sexism and cliched thinking. “This is supposed to respect women, but actually it’s an insult,” said one.
The mall managers deny the allegation. “We just wanted to make things easier for women, who make up most of our customers,” said Yang Hongjun, a woman herself.
“It’s not an insult to women at all,” she added. “If their parking spaces are larger, it’s only for practical reasons. It doesn’t mean that women drive less well than men.” ‘Men who cook and women who drive’
Officially, China proclaims the sexes equal in keeping with Communist principles, and Mao Zedong said that “women hold up half the sky”.
But conservative attitudes remain deeply ingrained, and women are conspicuous by their rarity in the upper echelons of Chinese politics and the ruling party, dominated by men in black suits.
One online poster on the Dalian car park said: “The two most dangerous things in the world are men who cook and women who drive.”
Manufacturers’ advertisements in the world’s biggest auto market are invariably aimed at male buyers, and a man at the mall, Wu Zhicun, said: “Women don’t really know how to park a car.”
“The few times I’ve come close to crashing was basically with women driving the other car,” he added. “I’ve noticed they’re a bit rough at the wheel, they only look forwards, too often they ignore their mirrors.”

But driving standards in China are often lamentable, regardless of which gender is at the wheel. According to state media reports, officials said 60,000 people died on the roads in 2012, the most recent figures available.
The parking initiative is not unprecedented — other countries have similar female-dedicated spaces, including South Korea and various European nations. The latest Chinese controversy echo

Why China’s Army Suck- They Bribe to Get to Serve

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 19, 2014

America is concerned about China’s military, or so they say. To me its a ruse in order to beef up military spending. Why fear an army equipped with cheap knockoffs of US tech and a repurposed Ukrainian tub called an aircraft carrier. Setting aside it lacks aircraft, and we get a glimpse of China’s problem. Their military sucks.

Now for their soldiers.

It is well known that most Chinese fail to meet the definition of men and possess the wingspan of a fruit fly and body mass of helium. In a word, they are less than imposing characters. In fact, they are such twats that they have to bribe to get accepted into the military, no kidding.

China, aka Coruptistan, has invented knock off soldiers. Corruption is rife in China’s military because they hold a lot of sway. Corrupt military officials create companies which syphon off commie funds and then they use that cash to send their son and wife to America. Say hi to your new Chinese neighbor!

In any event, the Chinese are more concerned with making cash and moving to civilization than protecting this stink hole, and who can blame them?

The following article shows how Chinese pay up to $20,000 civilized dollars to buy their kid a spot in the Chinese military. Part of the problem is these ‘men’ cannot pass the physicals and otherwise suck.

Is this really an army we should fear?

“To enlist in the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), potential recruits have to take tests. To make sure their sons and daughters pass, families pay up. At one recruitment office in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangxi, this year’s going rate, depending on your guanxi, or connections, is as much as 99,000 yuan ($16,000), says Wang, a recruitment officer in the province who asked that his full name not be used because he isn’t authorized to speak publicly. Limited openings, plus a high failure rate on the fitness exam, push parents to buy spots for their children during the annual enlistment drive that runs through September. Success offers a stable job and, for some, an escape from rural poverty.

The price varies, Wang says. His old army friends “asked me what the current price tag is, and I said ‘around 80,000 to 90,000 yuan for you guys.’ If your guanxi was really strong, it’d cost you around 50,000 to 60,000 yuan; if it was just so-so, you would have to spend 100,000 yuan at least.”
