Chinese Dishonor Honor System

The words ‘honor’ and ‘China’ are mortal enemies. Here is but yet another example of why Chinese are reviled across the globe…

A self-service cafe on the South Korean island of Jeju, which has no staff and relies on the honor system for payment, has put up a sign in Chinese to remind Chinese tourists to pay for what they have consumed and to wash the utensils they have used, reports Taiwanese news website ETtoday.

Self-service cafes have become a unique attraction on the island. Customers are expected to make their own coffee and prepare their own snacks, wash the utensils after use and leave money for what they have consumed. The average price of a beverage is 2,000-2,500 won (US$1.90-$2.40).

The SunSet & Hill Cafe in northern Jeju put up the sign to remind customers of the rules, as a number of Chinese tourists have evidently been eating and drinking without paying and leaving a mess for someone else to clean up. The sign was written in simplified Chinese and highlighted the fact that a number of Chinese tourists have broken the trust between self-service cafes and customers.

Explosion at Chinese Airport

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 15, 2014


There was an explosion today at an airport in Qinghai. Supposedly there were remnants of the device in trash bins at the scene. The explosion was at the car port and uncle chicom is saying nothing.

I think they will soon beat a confession out of the nearest non-Han, so as to calm the locals. Chinese ‘courts’ being what they are, the man or men will be detained, sodomized, confess and then be executed. At least that is how such matters have historically been dealt with in China.
