Pedestrians and motorists in downtown Chengdu, Sichuan province last weekend were probably surprised to see a young woman living in a rather well furnished bubble for two days.
China is currently dealing with an outbreak of deadly bird flu (H7N9 virus). As of April 10, there have been nine deaths and 28 confirmed infections, largely in the Shanghai area. Officials have been taking measures to prevent the spread of the disease, but they may have acted too slowly.
A rash of shocking photos from around China has been shocking Web users over the last couple of days. The images show sparrows and pigeons lying dead on the ground with no visible signs of injury. And not just one or two, but several and sometimes more than 10 mysteriously downed birds, leaving many to speculate whether bird flu is to blame. Read More
Monopterus albus also goes by the names “swamp eel” or “rice eel” and is a nocturnal carnivorous fish which feeds on frogs, shrimp, and turtle eggs. They have bristle-like teeth and sometimes are colored bright-yellowish shades.
At this point, you all must be thinking, “Gee, that sounds like it would feel great on my butt.” However, we urge you to stop and strongly consider the pitfalls of introducing an eel to your anus.
To clarify our point, here’s a horrifying and disgusting story from China.
Recently in China motorists have been walking away from accidents which would normally prove fatal. In the following two videos we will see a person riding a scooter get broadsided by a car and a huge pole crash through the windshield and into the driver’s seat of a bus. In each incidence of freakish luck both drivers appear visibly shaken neither looked seriously injured.
While Japan is undergoing the sorry cat meme, microbloggers in China seem to be going to the dogs… and dressing them up in women’s clothing.
Welcome to the world of “sexy dogs”, where owners adorn their pooches with heels, boots, tiaras, and of course the key component: pantyhose.
Some call the sexy dog craze “sick” and “idiotic” while others praise it as “hilarious” and “creative.” Take a look and judge for yourself.
The search is on in China this week as images of a nude man and woman sprinting across a busy road in Beijing while carrying what appears to be an inflatable sex doll went viral.
In a somewhat curious move, Japanese tech giant Canon’s Chinese marketing team has opted to use crime-fighting superhero Batman as the face for its new range of IXUS digital cameras.
According to the April 2 edition of Chinese daily newspaper the 21st Century Business Herald, in the year 2010 an incredible 1.23 million people lost their lives across China due to air pollution-related illnesses. The number accounts for 15 percent of total deaths recorded in the country for 2010. The information was revealed by a study group at Tsinghua University on March 31.
Now here’s a tale that will have you squirming in your seat: a 59-year-old man from Xiaogan, China has ended up going under the knife after inserting a 20cm-long length of wire into his colon. When asked why he would do such a thing, the man commented that he had simply been “bored” but then found that he could not remove the wire once he had fed it all the way in.
Online message boards in Japan began buzzing this afternoon after photos surfaced depicting conflicts between residents in Jiangxi Province, China, and the authorities charged with removing them. With demolition of the buildings already in progress, men and woman can be seen standing their ground on rooftops, some even defending themselves with long poles, in scenes that resemble riots.
The Chinese government announced on March 31 that two men from Shanghai have died from a variant of bird flu known as H7N9. It is the first time transmission of this type of bird flu has been confirmed in human beings. After contraction of the virus, both men showed symptoms of pneumonia.
The Chinese Health Authorities announced that the 87 and 23-year-old men first showed symptoms of a fever, pneumonia and similar characteristics in March of this year. The 87 and 27-year-old-men died on 4th and 10th of this month respectively.
Shortly afterwards, a detailed inspection into their deaths was carried out where it came to light that both men had been infected with the H7N9 strain of the bird flu virus. It has also been confirmed that a woman in the eastern province of China, Anhui, has been infected with the same strain of bird flu. Her current condition is critical, exhibiting identical symptoms of pneumonia, however the woman is said to be receiving medical treatment.
The country may be on the shy side when it comes to the exchange of digital information, but thanks to cheap labour costs and an enormous workforce China’s exports can be found in practically ever corner of the world. Assembling and distributing everything from U.S. flags to iPhones and laptop computers, since childhood many of us have been familiar with the imprint “Made in China” on the underside of our action figures or dolls. But even if we chuckle at the sometimes shoddy workmanship or gasp at counterfeit goods that never work, arguably few — if any — western countries could survive as they do today without their neighbours in the east.
It would seem, however, that the familiar old “Made in China” stamp is gradually being phased out. Looking at a number of goods assembled in China in recent times, “Made in PRC” is instead becoming an increasingly common sight on boxes and labels. Needless to say, the change is setting tongues a-wagging in Japan.
A skeleton measuring 3.5 metres (11 feet 5 inches) in length has allegedly been discovered in waters off China’s Shandong Province.
The skeleton, which is believed to have a total of 153 joints, was found by fishermen in Qingdao on 28 March. Local camera crews and crowds of onlookers soon gathered to catch a glimpse of the strange creature, whose origins have yet to be confirmed.
It an Internet café located near Jilin University in China sits a young man who has spent six years of his life continuously playing online games after graduating from university.
Except for where he’ll be nearly 24 hours a day very little is known about this man called Li Meng. Even a reporter from Xinhua was only able to get brief shreds of information while he spent most of the time glued to his monitor.
You know that phrase people sometimes use in times of great embarrassment when they wish they could disappear or the ground would just swallow them up? It turns out it’s not so great when that actually happens in real life.
Caught on camera from several angles, footage of an incident that occurred in Guangdong, China this week shows a wide stretch of pavement collapse in on itself at the precise moment a pedestrian was walking by. With no hint of warning, the ground beneath the man’s feet him suddenly disappears, swallowing him up and leaving nothing but an enormous gaping hole.
East Asia is an especially disaster-prone part of the world. Threats of earthquakes, flooding and typhoons, just to name a few are always lingering. In these instances it may be important to evacuate a building as quickly as possible.
One building in Shanghai seems to have engineered an elegant solution to this which they say can evacuate a fifth floor tenant in 14 seconds: a wacky fun slide.
At the trial of Li Wan Hao, a web designer living in Hong Kong, the court was shocked at the extent of porn saved on his hard drive. Unfortunately for Li somewhere in that sea of explicit content were a few drops of “illegal material.”
Despite the country’s phenomenal growth in recent years, the words “Made in China” carry certain negative connotations for some. Ignoring the fact that a vast proportion of our electrical goods–iPhones included–are assembled there, many people are quick to point to the label on their goods whenever a problem occurs.
Rather than focus on the negative, though, we’d like to take a few moments to commend China’s creativity and ingenuity when it comes to copyright restriction and trademarked brands. From Penesamig batteries to Calvim Klaim underwear, China is without a doubt the king of clever imitation.
There are few things worse for the tech fan of the 21st century than a smartphone running out of juice while out and about. Even newer smartphones start flagging after four or five hours of constant web surfing or video watching, meaning that remembering to pack a charging cable is, for some, almost as vital as the device itself. Thankfully, dozens of electronics makers have responded to this problem by launching pocket-sized mobile batteries that can provide smartphones with a full charge simply by plugging in a cable, keeping users playing games and posting OMFG and LOLZ comments all day long without fear of their gadget falling asleep on them.
