Caved-in Skull

If anyone deserves to be smacked on the head with a wok, it definately isn’t this kid. It should be his parents that did this to him, and ran off with the family savings!

Breaking Boundaries

Most people in their pursuit to be “well-rounded” usually travel outside of their country for a new experience. Others, have reached opportunity’s end in their own country, and attempt to send ttheir children off to learn in different countries. In the end, they all come back [temporarily or permanently] to their country changed:

I believe a key to being well-rounded is having various experiences, and although traveling may help, it only scratches the surface. Rarely will anyone gain much insight from a brief trip to a foreign country. However, this traveler to India provided an interesting insight on Buddhism, India, and how it shattered his old thoughts on what is “clean” and “dirty”:

In most religions, holy places are pristine, surreal places. Buddhist holy places are actually a dump.

Sex Ed

New Sex-Ed book for the “youngens” is condemned as pornography:
http://chinageeks.org/2011/08/chinese-sex-ed-a-plea-for-sanity

If you want to see the common layman’s reactions and arguments against this book, go ahead and read the above article. Which is worse: A book that actually teachers young adults and children early on about natural things that happen in the body? Or 10-year-olds who join a bikini fashion show, modeling with masks, and helping bikini designers with free advertising?

Shanghai lady publicly undresses to change clothes in subway. Maybe the clothes she was wearing were really THAT uncomfortable?

North Koreans in South Korean Inheritance Battles

That’s right! North Koreans on occasion, sue their South Korean relatives over inheritance issues. See, many North Koreans from the War never had a chance to flee with their families to the south, or for some other reason were separated from them due to the nature of war itself. Others escaped the North and later remarried in the South. When they pass away, the families in the North hear of this, and inheritance battles ensue. In fact, there are prior cases, in which North Koreans have actually won these cases. Now, South Korea’s Justice Ministry is trying to stop this money from leaving their country, and entering the North.

Maybe this is why North Koreans decided to kick out South Korean’s from their Mt. KumGang Tourist Region.

UPDATE, September 24, 2011:
North Korean lady does a no-brainer: Escapes impoverished North for the prosperous South, to claim grandfather’s inheritance.

Dogs

Normally, when it comes to China, we’re ridiculed, and even looked down upon for eating them. Normally, I say, “Screw you!” To those people, because these same people are normally cultural supremacists who believe in spreading American-style democracy all over the world, and everyone else is just inferior to them. All I have to ask is, “How’s that working out in Iraq and Afghanistan, for you?”

China is changing, and many people are even starting to talk about animal rights in China itself. And as the China Law Blog puts it: It’s very complex. One comment that struck me was,

“I grew up in a poor village. We raised one dog to watch the door and one to be killed in the Lunar New Year because we were too poor to buy pork. I don’t understand what’s wrong with that.”

Despite this, upon hearing that a local government official in Guangdong was bitten by a dog, and ordered dogs to be exterminated and beaten to death:
http://www.chinasmack.com/2011/stories/jiangmen-city-to-exterminate-all-dogs-in-public-areas.html

That’s where I draw the line. It’s one thing to say, “Hey there, you mangy mutt living outside in the wild, I’ll give you a home –in my belly!” But it’s another to go around, and just beating them senselessly. There are definitely a lot of social illnesses that the people are experiencing and seem to be taking out their frustrations in the wrong direction. This is no different than the guy who massacred a bunch of kindergartners.

Clearly, this official was probably bitten for the right reasons, and from what I see, has every right to die.

Magical!

If you’ve watched enough Steve Jobs speeches, that word would be very familiar to you. But take a look at this video:

My only lingering question is, knowing this, how can we stop lieing to others and ourselves?

Bizarre E.R.

I’ve never heard of this show until yesterday. Interesting. I like how the cartoons are used to illustrate the dangerous situations:

“Head Over Heels”:

Not sure if the jiggly boob cartoons were necessary, but if big-boobed cartoons aren’t you flavor, how about this one?
