Chinese Tourists, aka Global Menace Attack

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 2, 2015


Chinese tourists are known for a couple of things. First off, they redefine the term ‘rube’ with those big billed hats, one-size-fits-all shirts and incessant yapping. Indian corn colored teeth coupled with breath that could atomize coal make them a fan favorite for no one.

Aside from their utter lack of concern for aesthetic appeal, they are also known to be rude. Toting along Chinese civility with them wherever they go, the Chinese eat, spit and shit wherever they please. Aside from this their manners are on display as those howler monkeys foray into civilized lands.

Here is an example of the latter…

Wantchinatimes.com
Two Chinese tourists argued and fought with a Thai traveler at Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport after the latter tried to stop them from cutting in line, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily.

The Thai passenger sought to stop the two Chinese women from cutting in line before the Lion Air check-in counter at the airport on Friday. The two women argued fiercely and the man found himself being chased around the airport as the two women waved their arms trying to hit him until airport staff intervened.

Staff took the women to the police station and arranged for them to take a flight back to China. Lion Air said the Thai man was scheduled to take a flight at 10pm on the day and the two women were scheduled for an 11pm departure.

Scandal at APEC, Putin Hitting on Xi Jinping’s Wife?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 11, 2014


Did Vladmir ‘Pooty Pute’ Putin score at APEC?

Putin
‘This meeting is so fucking boring. I wish there was something fun to do; kill Ukrainians or something’

China’s first lady thinking, ‘I wish i could meet real man. Not only is Xi’s pecker the size of a hangnail, but it quit working decades ago. And what is with all that lipstick he wears? Oh sigh,…I Wish i could get some strange…’
20141111-152140-55300542.jpg

China’s first lady to herself.’To hell with it, looks like Xi would rather be canoodling with Obama than his Major General wife. That wanksock.’ Straightens her hair, hacks up a wad of phlegm and spits.

Then to Putin,’That way, over there.’
Putin, ‘Huh?’

China’s first lady, ‘A hotel. It has big bed.’

20141111-152529-55529767.jpg

Putin, yawns, ‘Interesting.’ Turns away.

20141111-152140-55300542.jpg

40 minutes later
Putin, thinking, ‘I am at the end of my rope. If they don’t bring me somebody to torture I’m going to die. At least let me kick and Afghani in his nuts or something.’

Glances around, mumbles, ‘Shit this is boring. Who but the dumbass Chinese would hold a November summit in a swimming pool?

It’s cold as hell. My hammer and sickle are the size of mice paws. Damn the Chinese!’

Then it hits him. He glances over, sees Xi practically in Obama’s lap and has an idea. His mind races, ‘What the hell am I thinking, I am Vladimir Putin, the sexiest midget on the planet. They don’t call me ‘Vlad the Impaler’ for nothing.’

20141111-154529-56729837.jpg

To himself, ‘Looks like its time for another invasion. Heheh. Turns to Peng Liyuan who just then had groped his summer sausage.

‘Uh, hey. You are in the military, right?’

China’s first lady, face reddening, ‘Why yes, yes I am. In the dance troupe actually. Did you know that after the non-massacre in 1989 I treated the troops to a lulaby.’

Putin, face tightening in remorse. Thinks to himself, ‘The shit a guy’s got to put up with in order to get some tang.’

Then remembers that ‘first hag’ Peng is still talking, glances back at her liver lips blubbering.

China’s first lady, ‘Why yes I did. Anything for the motherland. Why if you would like, I could sing that same song to you right now….’

Without missing a beat, first hag breaks into an ear splitting rendition of ‘its ok, its ok, its ok to kills students for the motherland….!

20141111-155248-57168136.jpg

Right as she reaches the climax of the song and is ready to hail those brave men who fearlessly crouched in their tanks and spewed forth a 50 caliber reminder that Beijing should not be questioned, Putin had enough. He springs to his feet and lifts her up.

Clamping his pepper shaker sized paw over her mustard colored maw, he dry humps her and whispers, ‘You ever eaten Russian?’

20141111-160042-57642001.jpg

After moments of frenzied thrusting followed by a minor tremble, the two decouple. She is ecstatcic, ‘Wow you Russian bear! I think we pulled a Monica and Clinton. Is that your man-mayonnaise on my back or did somebody hit me with sherbert?’

Putin smiles in that cagey, ‘Take your eyes off and me and your dead,’ look. Then chuckles, ‘Don’t worry ‘old yeller’, I got just the thing for that. We can cover up our little escapade with this.’

20141111-160303-57783555.jpg

China’s first lady, ‘Why yes, yes, this will do just fine.
My my my, what a splendid night it has been.’

20141111-161255-58375123.jpg

After a good scrubbing, she hands back the coat.

20141111-161653-58613816.jpg

‘Now it’s your turn,’ she giggles and crouches under the table.

Comprehensive List of All the things You Will Love About China- Tales from the Crypt

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 9, 2014


Living in China has made me an authority on China. In my quest to share such knowledge, I have started my ‘Tales from the Crypt’ posts which explain in detail the realities of China.

The following is a comprehensive list of all the things you will love about the PRC, should you decide to visit and or live there:

Tales from the Crypt- Mao’s Rotting Corpse and Soul-less Chinese, Working in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on November 2, 2014


I read some book by a lady with a name too long to pronounce and hard-coded with far too many consonants to remember, but that book is a primer on China. In a while I will dig up her name but lets talk about the PRC first.

I never wanted to go to China, Asia was not my thing. My uni had a few China-philes but we didn’t run together. My preference was for all things Spanish. Their zest for life, the colors, the language, music, their inner being.

It was with not a little sadness that I flew the coop on a supposed one-year stint in China, which was to be capped off with a thorough body wash and then return to all things civil. One thing lead to another and Days turned to weeks and suddenly the calendar was replacing ‘0’s with 1’s and my 365 year gig had septupled.

The words ‘love’ and ‘passion’ were not associated with my stay there. In fact, ‘morbid curiosity’ and ‘masochism’ are more likely candidates for anything I felt. The simple fact is that China has a tar black hole in its inner-most being which most people associate with the complete and utter absence of good and humanity. Perhaps I should explain…

Headings go here..
To keep myself from wandering, I will slap headings before my rant. These will also let you keep track of which path my ADD enhanced mind currently rambles down.

Chinese are soulless
Referring back to the book whose name I cannot recall, I would like to say that Chinese are cruel. No, not in that ‘fat school kid who always got picked on’ way, but that deep down cruelty exposing an excess of depravity that only thousands of years of hatred and grief could create. The People in China are the most soulless i have ever met.

Lets reflect on that sentiment for a moment.

My job has taken me to some pretty rough places and my natural charm and endearing way has put me in the path of some very strange people. I’ve guns pulled on me by Mexican cops, been robbed by the law in Brazil too. Those men were tender compared to the Rio mulatto who tried to separate my internal organs for me just to get at the coin in my pocket.

What all those people had in commom, for the most part, was a sense of humanity. Sure that guy in Rio did not look like a saint as he gashed at my innards so I would stop pummeling him with blows, but before it all went down, his eyes flashed human. He was merely a homeless person with friends and family to feed. Had I given him cash he would have had no reason to attack me. I did not and he did. Lucky for me it ended in a draw. He and his buddies got the equivalent of $0.50 and I got away unharmed. But as I said, inside he was human

Chinese are cruel
It may sound a little less than politically correct to say this, but Chinese are inhumanly cruel. As you may have figured out, ‘trouble’ and ‘your humble author’ are pretty good friends. It does not follow me, but for some reason I pursue it with a vigor. My day job taxes my boredom bone which leaves me empty. Chasing danger fills a need which sitting on my ass for eight hours at a time cannot. The benefit of this hobby is that it has enabled me to peer into the souls of the most depraved people one could meet. But almost without exception, in all that depravity I saw a spark, a smidgeon of goodness. That quick glimpse of humanity quickly covered over by grief, greed or madness. Nonetheless, inside there was something human with which I could relate.

And then came China
China is famous for its ‘kill all but one child’ policy, but to those people it is nothing new. In fact, baby killing or infanticide is as old as China. A couple thousand years ago some pig-faced emperor declared that starving families could dine on their child, as long as it was a girl.

When these people were not noshing on female femurs, they were tossing them off cliffs. The Chinese had a custom of discarding unwanted baby girls into a pile on the outskirts of town. This started before China proper itself, and is still happening today.

The Chinese are inhumanly cruel

But what does this have to do with working in China?
Dragging my liberated brain back to the subject matter, I contend that thousands of years of inhumanity have deformed the mainland DNA. Sure, there are great people in China, but that layer of sickness pervades. You see it in the way they treat each other, their kids, animals and especially you. The Chinese are inhumanly cruel.

The book written by the woman whose name has too many consonants spoke about this, tangentially at least. She writes about a Canadian woman who came to China not long after I did. That woman was looking to be a model and lit in Shanghai. After doing bar gigs she found herself on the wrong end of some steel and was filleted by some local. The poor woman never even saw it coming.

Chinese will lie
This woman, like most of us, probably thought China was no different than anyplace else. Of course it may be rough, but the Chinese were human, right?

Her innocence lead her into the steaming bowels of inhumanity that typifies Chinese business today. In a country which predicates the permitted murder of infants on their perceived ability to generate wealth, civility is stuffed in the trunk. China is to society what ‘Oz’ was to prisons, a perfect storm of neurosis, predation and opportunity which lead to the dehumanization of everyone. In China it is truly a dog-eat-dog world.

Just the facts sir
Back to the woman and the book with a name. I now recall, ‘the City Swallowed Them’. The author describes this poor Canadian who was brought to China under false pretenses, which aptly describes just about anyone who has worked there.

Jobs in China and people pimping them abound, and they all share one common theme. If you work in China, you are going to get fuked. It is the nature of the beast.

Chinese worship cash
Perhaps its the thousand year history of monetizing the suffering of others or some latent gene sprung to the fore by a controlled gene pool, but the Chinese often lack that which the rest of the world would call humanity. They think nothing of twisting truths and luring people from 6000 miles away and then abusing them as if they were chattle. Lies, treachery, manipulation, the grease enabling China’s economic rise.

In my life I have never been cheated out of a day’s wage, with the exception of China. In that country I have never not been cheated, with the exception of helping friends, there were no exceptions.

The difference between the Canadian woman who was killed in Shanghai and so many gullible westerners and me is that I came prepared. I’ve danced with the darkness, and knew what to expect. In China its every man for himself, a thing which is readily apparent. You pick up quickly on that and up your game, or you bitch and leave. China leaves no middle ground, you either attack or become tomorrow’s lunch.

This trait seemed to be common in the foreigners I met there. They were either ‘deer in headlights’ townies whose frustration had them calling daddy within months or those who merely rode the wave. They sealed themselves off from the subhuman vacuum and minimized contact with China. They stuck to their clique, worked gigs recommended by friends and saw China for what it is.

China is a swamp
Which brings me to the conclusion of this rant. China’s spiritual pestilence has a stultifying effect on one’s soul. In a country where random acts of ‘kindness’ are replaced with ‘treachery’ hardens one’s heart. Like I said above, this means you either get with it or get out, the thing to remember is that in China nothing is for free. Think about it like this…

If you are truly thinking of going to China, read a book or two. Try anything from the mid 19th century and you will have a good idea of what the. PRC is all about. Any country which condones the consumption of its children is not a good place. Remember I said that this was a holdover from antiquity, well I failed to state that it is still alive and well. In fact, there are still Chinese padding the streets with infant blood on their hands, during the late 1950’s and up the the late 60’s, Mao’s madness threw China into chaos and famine. In order to survive, the Chinese literally ate their youth. Jasper Becker can tell you all about it, just run an Amazon search on his name.

Now consider, if a people will go so far as to feast on the flesh of their own, what will they do to you?

Think about that as you consider that fantastic Teaching job in China or guided tour there. The Chinese are inhumanly cruel. Why else would the face of the world’s most prolific murderer adorn each and every banknote they have?

China should be treated with the same pestilence that it treats its youth and its livestock. Consider it the Ebola of humanity and cordon it off from your life.

Why Chinese Expect War With America

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 17, 2014


Here is a great article with insight into the minds of Chinese. They are not our friend, nor do they want to be. They expect that we two countries will wage within a decade or less. Think about this when you consider hiring that Chinese national or selling them your house.

China has us in its ginsights.

Excerpt
Why do so many Chinese expect war?
JULIAN SNELDER 13 OCT, 11:13 AM
POLITICS ECONOMY CHINA
Lowy Interpreter

A professor of classical music in Beijing startled me in 2010 when he said, ‘when I look at my students, I fear we are headed for war within five years.’

‘War with whom?’, I enquired.

‘With anyone.’

His students don’t seem like fenqing (‘angry youth’). They are in a musical conservatory, after all, not a military academy. Many have overseas connections. But they are also ambitious, emotional, fiercely nationalist and for them war – any war – would be a gratifying affirmation of their country’s ascendance. Like the 2008 Olympic Games but with real explosions, not fireworks. These kids lap up PLA propaganda films like Silent Contest even as they dream of Juilliard. My professor friend worries they just haven’t thought things through, that their various aspirations are totally misaligned.

A similar message comes from a recent essay in The Economist. ‘What does China want?’ it asks, and it concludes China may not get all it seeks. Understandably, China wants wealth and power. It also wants respect. Yet respect is love as much as fear. The Economist wonders if the Chinese state, with its heavy hand at home and blaring ‘cold-war, Manichean imagery’, will achieve this aim.

What do the Chinese people themselves want? As patriots, they want wealth, power and respect for their country.

They also want out. Of those who can afford to, 64 per cent wish to leave, an extraordinary figure. At the same time however, most Chinese are nationalistic, so perhaps Beijing merely reflects their mood. As Jessica Chen Weiss argues, nationalism is not new. The only thing that varies is the Government’s ‘green light/red light’ indulgence of nationalistic public protest. Most alarming is the high level of anticipation for war among the Chinese public. And thanks in part to an endless parade of World War II television dramas, the target is clear: Japan. In a recent survey, only one-quarter of Chinese do not foresee future military conflict with Japan.

The ‘strange revival of nationalism’ is a paradox of our age. War worship should totally contradict materialist aspirations, yet the two often go together. Perhaps some new citizens want the goodies of Western life without the full package of liberal rights and responsibilities. In the words of philosopher John Gray they ‘don’t much care about getting to Denmark’, the supposed nirvana of Francis Fukuyama’s modernity. Or they might, but they don’t become Danes when they do.

Historically, the morphing of prosperity into nationalism has been a powerful trend. The ‘strange revival’ may be exactly that: an atavistic reversion to type. In 1841, a Prussian aristocrat proclaimed the great virtue of economic progress over warfare:

Under a good and wise administration…are not (our) inhabitants better fed, clothed and schooled? Are not such results equal to a victorious campaign…with the great difference that they are not gained at the expense of other nations, nor the sacrifice of the enormous number of victims that a war demands?

Azar Gat’s magisterial War in Human Civilization identifies that aristocrat as Field Marshal Helmuth von Moltke, the German Chief of General Staff, who 50 years later would blame the ‘passion of the populace’ for warmongering: ‘Today, war and peace (are) no longer cabinet questions…Public opinion (may) prove stronger than the will of those who rule.’ By the 1890s, Bismark’s restrained Prussian growth machine had become unified Germany, now under the bombastic Wilhelm, who would later ‘roll the iron dice’ for the honour of his Reich. Germany’s economic success led to an expanded sense of diplomatic entitlement.

On the other side of the world, the New York Times (30 July 1894) fretted:

Japan is panting for a fight. She has, at great cost, reorganized her army and founded a fleet, and would…readily avail herself of any opportunity of proving their value and showing to an admiring world what she can do with them. Of all possible opponents, China would be the most preferred, for the Japanese regard (the) mainland with a most holy hatred, mixed with a great deal of contempt.

Those same words are depressingly imaginable today, with the roles reversed. Xi Jinping commands the PLA to be battle-ready. The state media uses harsh words like ‘unswerving’, ‘unflinching’ and ‘uncompromising’. A defence academic warns the nation to prepare for World War III. An active-duty PLA major general scoffs that Japan can be ‘taught a lesson’ with a third of his forces. No wonder 64% of Chinese surveyed think ‘hardening our position’ is the way to resolve territorial disputes.

Truth of Chinese Manufacturing Quality in Pictures

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 15, 2011


Welding is a process of joining metals by introducing a ‘filler metal’. This filler is electrically charged becomes molten and bonds the two pieces one wishes to join. Welding is an integral part of most manufacturing process and if you look at any building and or product containing metal, you will probably find welds. (riveting or bolting is also an option)
Welders in the USA are pretty well trained for much is riding on their ability. Build practically anything with metal and you need capable welders-cars trains, bridges, bikes, motorcycles, planes, buses, boats, machinery, etc.
In order to perform their jobs safely, welders typically need these things. (photo from Miller welding gear)

Not only does the welder need to protect himself as a tremendous amount of current is flowing through the welding rig, but he also needs to shield his eyes and skin from molten metal that sparks from the welds he is making. In addition, it is imperative to see the ‘bead’ or the line of molten metal that he is drawing to ensure a quality weld.

in the USA we have various agencies in charge of testing, qualifying and certifying welders and they typically do a pretty good job.

These, however, are welders in China 

Yes this man who seems to be snoozing rather than joining two hunks of metal upon which the lives of many will depend, but then again this is China.

Aside from their weld positions, other concerns come to mind

            

Do they look safe? Can we assume that a man who is

          

hanging on for dear life has a sufficient level of concentration to make  a weld with enough structural integrity upon which we  may trust our lives?

What will his work product be like?

       

And even if we ignore the big picture, how about his equipment. What does a professional Chinese welder don before undertaking his tasks? lets see, Chinese are nice so I will befriend him and learn about his secrets.

Here he comes. His protective shield and goggles seem odd, but maybe I am being ethnocentric or a snob.

  

Here he comes, a real Chinese professional ….And now lets meet my new friend

Hmm that is odd, he does not look much like a  professional welder. So I decided to go investigate and found out that

………………………….

his weld ‘hood’ was a piece of cardboard and his ‘goggles’ were nothing more than sunglasses. But rest assured because the boss man was on the scene to ensure a quality product

        

This photo series if nothing else should serve to warn people about the realities of China. The people are great but communism, greed and corruption have left their work product to be a thing of scorn. While it is politically correct to not call them ‘reds’ chicoms and the like, it should not be politically correct to ignore obvious signs of malfeasance. This photo spread shows the reality of China and should not be ignored.

The Chinese made the statue of Martin Luther King, they have manufactured a bridge for us in San francisco and many other things and we, like idiotic sheep continue to trust big business both in China and the states as they proclaim the Chinese miracle.

Who could not build hundreds of thousands of apartments with this of quality and workmanship. The problem is that business does not want us to know about this stuff for if we did we’d shit in our collective pants and demand change. So its much easier to disqualify such pics as an outlier. My response to that would be, this is China.

Believe what you will, but next time someone tells you about the China miracle and quality please feel free to send them this link or download the pics and send them around. The more we know the better off we are. Maybe these photos show why a typical Chinese building lasts 30 years while ours last 90.

Just remember both of these guys are paid what they are worth. The question is to whom shall you give your money?

  who do you trust ?

Chinese Beauty Queens on Parade- China Photo

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 24, 2011


I come from God’s country or Iowa as its known to the masses. In Iowa, aside from drinking shine and slapping leather at the nearest watering hole, they take time to do other things. And when they are done with those other things, they do more and so on and so on. But one of the things they love to do is to have parades. It gives them time to forget about just how boring it is to watch corn grow.
In all honesty, I think parades rock for when else can those freaking shriners drive around in those creepy little cars and those odd ball grins and not be thrown in a home for ‘special’ people.
Aside from them, parades are cool and I have fun. The other day while enduring a drive through the Beijing NoX filed air, I spied a few ‘mei neu’ or Chinese beauties being jetted around the glutted streets of Beijing for all to see. Quick with a camera, your humble author and servant got off a shot of these future starlets and uploaded it so you could get a look at all that China has to offer….

China’s Hack Addiction- CCTV Hacks a Scene From Top Gun

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 31, 2011


In an attempt to build her credibility around the world, CCTV has allegedly shanzai’ed some footage from the movie Top Gun and claim it as their own. How sad is it when you have to hack fighter scenes from the 80’s….

Click the link to see the video, how hilarious…

from here

On Jan. 23, China’s state broadcaster, CCTV, ran a story about an air force training exercise that contained some suspicious footage.

Around the segment’s one minute 12 seconds mark (see above), as the China-U.S.-oriented blog Ministry of Tofu pointed out, “the way a target was hit by the air-to-air missile fired by a J-10 fighter aircraft and exploded looks almost identical to a cinema scene from the Hollywood film Top Gun.”

Viewers were led to believe that what they were seeing was a live fire exercise. But according to Ministry of Tofu: “A net user who went by the name “刘毅” (Liu Yi) pointed out that the jet that the J-10 ‘hit’ is an F-5, a US fighter jet. In Top Gun, what the leading actor Tom Cruise pilots an F-14 to bring down is exactly an F-5. Looking at the screenshots juxtaposition, one cannot fail to find that even flame, smoke and the way the splinters fly look the same.”

Not convinced? The Wall Street Journal’s China Real Time Report put the videos side-by-side.
http://s.wsj.net/media/swf/main.swf

The seemingly doctored footage has been removed from CCTV’s website. But Real Time China Report notes that Chinese media has in the past been caught red-handed lifting fictional U.S. material in news reports.

“In 2002, the popular Beijing Evening News tabloid translated and published as genuine a satirical news article by The Onion about U.S. Congress threatening to leave Washington D.C. unless the city built them a new building with a retractable roof,” writes Josh Chin. “Five years later, the state-run Xinhua news agency infamously used an x-ray image of Homer Simpson’s head to illustrate a story about the discovery of a genetic link to multiple sclerosis.”

CCTV has declined to comment in media reports.

America Say Goodbye To Your Pensions-20% of Chinese Companies Listed in USA Stock Market Accused of Fraud

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 14, 2010


Many Americans are betting their retirement and pensions on the stock market. China now has companies listed in the American Stock Market and being Chinese, they may do things different-they have a different definition of morals, ethics and cheating. More than 20% of all Chinese companies listed in the USA stock exchange have been accused of fraud.
I say kudos to them, we dont really need our hard earned money do we? This is pretty scary and if we allow it, then we are fools and deserve it.
China does not play by the same rules, check your portfolio, talk to your brokers….

excerpt:
“More than 20 of the Chinese companies listed on the United State’s exchanges have been accused of fraud, China Business News reported Monday.

About 80 percent of Chinese companies listed on the US market meet the nation’s standards, but 10-20 percent of the firms provided false information, the report said, citing Stephen Paul Monticelli, president of Mosaic Investments LLC, a San Francisco-based company that has invested in Chinese firms over the past five years.”
