China is fucking scary
« on: July 21, 2008, 03:15:31 PM »

Hey look it's 1885 again!

Great exposé article, sums up some of the issues nicely, though this has been in the works for some time now, going back to the 1970's at least (Angola etc.). We could only pray that after yet another 50 years of merciless rape and a further 50 years of Imperial Chinese Raj, that the Africans will someday find their own Sun-Yat-Sen. If the Africans even survive at all - the Mainlanders typically don't even have that nominal White Yellow Man's Burden to pay lip service to.

But you know, that's the hopeful outlook. What ho, darkies!

"a country where the population has almost trebled from 500 million to 1.3 billion in 50 years."
 :wat:

Interesting article, though.

Yeah, the rounding was a bit excessive... but not as excessive as you'd wish it was.

Just so long as it's bassed on passable statistics.

I'll be damned.  Trebled actually can work that way.

Some good stuff here.

There is growing evidence, in fact, that China's official environmental numbers cannot be trusted. The actual level of air pollution in Beijing is worse than what China promised, and worse than China's official claims.

:orly:

Also, I want to hug the fellow who wrote the commentary in the Nan Feng Chuang (see the 'Patriot Games' entry).

So, it's tainted milk now.

It bears repeating that they EXECUTED their previous FDA chief over shit like this.  (I've always said the death penalty's not a deterrent...)

Anyway.  China.  What the fuck.

I heard on the news about this that the FDA chief resigned over this.  I have no link to back it up or anything, but yeah.

Wow, for the first time ever I want to use my moderator powers.

Only I can't seem to find what it is you guys do to merge topics.

(Was going to rename the merged thread 'China' for clarity).

Should be down at the bottom, right above the "Jump to:" box.

I'd do it, but you sound so enthusiastic.

EDIT: GJ.  I changed the sub/desc to something less awkward.

Huzzah. Not as much punch, but hey, if it didn't fit I should've just made that concession myself instead of trying to shoehorn it.

Brevity is not my strong suit. No, really?

So funny thing happened the other week:

For the longest time, one of my favorite delicacies was White Rabbit Candy.  It's like hard creamy taffy, except it also has a rice paper coating which prevents you tasting the sweet goodness until the candy is sufficiently melty to melt both the rice paper, and thus the candy.  I was eating them the other day when my roomate came in and grabbed a few, asking me if this sort of stuff would kill him. 

I told him that considering it was Chinese, just being in the same room probably condemmed him of six different types of Cancer..  "Of The Ass..."

The next day, he pelts me with the remaining candies as he shows me this.  Since then, the Vancouver based importer has carried out a voluntary recall. 

And now I have no White Rabbit...

Wow?

Wow doesn't even begin to cover the theory that the Economist suggests is behind this whole scandal. 

It puts even more meaning to "this whole issue has become nothing more than a big flaming pile of cow dung!"

I love the tone of the article.  "Until now, scientists have been unsure of the chemical's toxicity.  ...now they're sure."
