Quote from: Walks_At_Night on February 06, 2018, 08:41:22 PMWhat about the mental health of the Chinese that are stationed there? Perhaps they can Skype with the Chinese version of Dr. Phil and get the help they need.My Uncle Vern worked for Packard. During the war they sent him to a little reef/atoll place like that and he stayed therefor three straight years, overhauling PT Boat engines or whatever. My Dad said he was never quite right in the head after that...............

QuoteChinese state media are using a video of a child urinating in a lift to reinforce better parental controls.The Ministry of Public Security has shared footage on the popular Sina Weibo microblog from 23 February of an elevator in a building in southwest Chongqing."Please educate, and take good care of your children!" it says.The footage shows a boy urinating over the buttons that take passengers to different floors. His actions caused the lift to short circuit, and then he appears visibly distressed as the lights go on and off, and the doors open and close.Official newspaper People's Daily says that the unnamed boy was subsequently rescued.Beijing News says that the boy's father disputes the video's authenticity. "He [the father] says that his son cannot yet urinate that high, he doesn't believe it, and his son won't admit it, says he didn't do it," a reporter tells the paper.

Quote from: albrecht on March 23, 2018, 06:54:09 PMThat would be fun in an earthquake or just with some bad weather. Good article showing the Chinese frequent claim are, basically, bs."The implied superiority of such a long history begets a dangerous sense of entitlement. And itâ€™s just plain silly. Imagine if we applied the logic of â€œold civilizations deserve special treatmentâ€ to Egypt and the modern Mesopotamian nations of Iraq and Iran, places that actually do have five thousand years of history. Imagine executives explaining, â€œOur joint venture in Cairo is losing money but we have to be patient â€" they built the pyramids four-and-a-half-thousand years ago.â€ Or picture political commentators urging caution along the lines of: â€œCanâ€™t push the Iranian government too hard for democratic reforms â€" they had cities when we were still living in caves.â€"https://camphorpress.com/5000-years-of-history/
