China

You’ve probably never had as much fun in a traffic jam than these Chinese motorists 【Pics】

Whether it be Japan’s Golden Week, America’s Memorial Day or any other national holidays in the spring, the draw of good weather and free time calls people out of their homes. Who could resist a nice drive under blue skies, while not having to think about usual daily responsibilities? Probably no one on the planet.

On May 1, China celebrated Labor Day, a national holiday. Free from work, people headed out. If you haven’t heard, China has a lot of people, so with nearly everyone having a day off, you can only imagine what the traffic was like! While most people would let heavy traffic ruin their day, some Chinese people who were stuck in an infinity-long line of traffic decided to not let the situation get them down and instead brought the party on to the road.

Even in relatively clean Japan, public toilets are a special kind of gross. The kind of place where people go to, obviously, relieve themselves, but all too often to show off their artistic skills (or lack thereof) with graffiti, wipe snot on the wall, and have the occasional illicit encounter.

But in one particular public toilet in China, something especially nefarious must have happened, because this Zengzhou, Henan Province bathroom appears to be haunted by the discarded remains of a partially deflated sex doll.

Man in China collapses after 14-day online game binge, begs medics to let him keep playing

Online gaming addiction is becoming a serious problem in China, with multiple reported cases of people collapsing and even going a little bit off the deep end after spending days at a time online at internet cafes.

Recently, a man collapsed after spending a shocking 14 days playing an online game – but when an ambulance was called for him, he is reported to have begged the medics to let him keep on playing just a little while longer…

This restaurant has a new secret weapon: a robot that slices the perfect noodle faster than any human

China has a new celebrity, and it’s not another 7′ 6″ giant who can dunk a basketball or martial-arts master taking center stage in American action movies.

It’s a noodle-slicing robot named Foxbot, who can be found at Dazzling Noodles, an open-kitchen restaurant chain in North China’s Shanxi province.

Crayfish claw mistakenly eaten whole becomes huge pain in the ass

On 17 April, a man whom the Chinese media is referring to as Zhang headed for the toilet to perform a crucial part of his morning routine. There would be no chance to catch up on the sports section of his paper this day, however.

During his bowel movement the man in his 40s experienced a severe pain in his anus. It wasn’t until the pain grew so intense that he could barely walk that Zhang decided to seek medical help.

And so begins a lesson on chewing your food properly.

Are you too chicken to eat a chicken comb?

Chicken legs, drumsticks, wings, breasts, feet, and now the comb? What will they think of next?

Letting no part go to waste, the latest food trend that people are crowing about is the chicken’s comb (cockscomb) or crest (the red mohawk-like fleshy part of a chicken’s forehead). But are you too chicken to try it?

Two years ago, Song Bo was diagnosed with a serious illness which gave him constant headaches and brought upon depression. Convinced he would never marry or have children, Song was browsing the internet one day when he stumbled upon a listing on China’s online shopping site Taobao that was to give him new hope.

Song bought a child-sized love doll, just 145cm tall (4’10”), and now takes her everywhere with him. The doll may be pint-sized, but as this tender photo series shows, she seems to have changed his life.

Anime lingerie set is clearly inspired by Cardcaptor Sakura, copyright status somewhat murkier

While Naoko Takeuchi’s Sailor Moon remains the most famous and marketable member of the pantheon, she’s not the only anime magical girl with a devoted and passionate following. Four-member manga creative team Clamp has dipped its collective 40 toes in the genre from time to time, most successfully with Cardcaptor Sakura, which debuted in 1996.

In the run-up to the series’ 20th anniversary, we’ve been seeing more and more Sakura items being pitched to fans who grew up loving the franchise. Now it seems like someone has designed the most adult merchandise yet: Cardcaptor Sakura lingerie.

Locals and visitors feel Xi’an garbage cans to be “a little much”

Excessive cleanliness has erupted on a garden path from the Bell Tower of Xi’an to a shopping district as 10 identical trash bins appeared on a single 50-meter (164ft) stretch.

This act of unusual urban planning has left residents such as one Ms. Wu to exclaim: “A trash can for every freakin’ bench! What luxury!”

Women get paid to ‘escort’ male online gamers, provide game instruction in growing Chinese trend

Remember those women in South Korea who get paid money to film themselves eating large meals to provide company for any lonely diners out there? It appears that a similar trend is growing in popularity in China, only this time with male online gamers who pay an hourly wage for online female escorts to play with them.

Don’t jump, we’ll be your boyfriend! Dumped Chinese college girl saved by dozens of men with sheets

China has a history of people jumping off buildings for crazy reasons, with crazy results, and with absolutely insane intentions.

But the latest jump attempt in China might just take the cake. A female Chinese college student climbed to the top of a 13-story building and threatened to jump, but she was quickly “saved” by a group of fast-acting men ready to do their best to catch her if she fell.

And their safety net of choice: not a trampoline, not a mattress, but sheets. Lots and lots of sheets.

What’s the best way to market sea food? Why, dress a mannequin in it, of course!

Advertising is a big part of any business. In order to sell your product, you have to make it look appealing to customers in order to tempt them into making a purchase, and thinking of new, creative ways to advertise your goods can get pretty tricky.

However, we’re quite torn over whether this Seaweed Mandiscovered at a grocery store in China – is a stroke of advertising genius, or just a creepy, half-assed attempt at it.

China’s ‘Rent-a-Foreigner’ industry is booming

Foreigners are being hired to pose as celebrities by Chinese real estate developers to help agents sell property in “ghost towns” by making them appear more animated and worldly, according to a new mini-documentary released by the New York Times.

Thanks to China’s overzealous property development, the supply of luxury apartment complexes in some of China’s most rural areas has far exceeded demand. But that doesn’t stop the sales pitches.

The Times’ David Borenstein traveled to provincial West China where he found firms that specialized in recruiting groups of expatriates who they would then rent out to attend events, the majority of which are hosted by real estate companies.

Unemployed Shanghai “booth babes” protest for their right to be sexy with cars

Promotional models or “booth babes” are a controversial part of convention culture. Many see them as a gimmick at best, and at worst dehumanizing women by turning them into part of the product being sold. In China, the government considers them so “vulgar” that recently laws have been passed banning “booth babes” at events.

The first victim of the new law is the 2015 Shanghai Motor Show. Instead of dozens of beautiful women adorning cars, now there are none. But that doesn’t mean they’ve disappeared; instead the now-unemployed models are taking to the Shanghai streets, protesting for their right to be sexy and get paid for it.

Android app allegedly allows users to find and hire muscle to beat up whomever they want

One thing that Apple fans tend to bring out during the enormous Android vs iPhone flame wars is apps. While both systems have a huge number of applications, people often claim that those on iOS are either better or cover a broader range. We won’t even pretend to have an opinion on whether or not this is true, but it looks like Android may have Apple beat in at least one area! Though we’re not so sure Google will be proud of this accomplishment.

It looks like there might be an Android app in China that you can use to find some tough guys to rough people up for you!

Chinese motorists dance their way through traffic jam

Funkiness broke out on a congested highway outside Kunming City, Yunnan Province, on 22 April. As a car accident brought traffic to a standstill, thousands of motorists found themselves stranded on the asphalt with no escape in sight.

So they did all anyone could do at a time like that: get their groove on.

Chinese snack shysters rip off Koala’s March cookies, complete with gibberish Japanese

It’s no secret that these days, everyone’s ripping everyone else off when it comes to products. But yummy Japanese snack foods seem to be a particular target, with Korean-based company Lotte famously copying Japan’s popular “Pocky” sticks right down to their svelte packaging. And now it seems that China has got in on the act, with this knockoff version of Japan’s beloved “Koala no March” animal biscuits.

Unfortunately, these shysters didn’t even bother trying to make it look like an original product, opting instead for nonsensical Japanese writing on the packaging and grimaces of pain on the face of every cookie koala…

Those of you who spend much time thinking about sports, international politics, or moaning, naked women might recall the incident a few years ago where Chinese soccer fans held up banners proclaiming “The Senkaku Islands belong to us! Sola Aoi belongs to the world!” The dual proclamation served as a simultaneous declaration of their territorial stance towards the disputed land masses and their egalitarian attitude regarding the Japanese porn star-turned singer and actress who’s amassed a massive fanbase in China.

The Senkaku issue remains a thorny one, in part complicated by the islands stubborn refusal to simply pick a side in the spat between Japan and China and move themselves closer to one country or the other. Sola, on the other hand, is much more mobile, and may be taking the comment about the whole world having the right to bask in her aura to heart as she’s reportedly considering moving her target market from China to Southeast Asia.

Chinese cosplayer’s version of Kongou is pregnant for real, but fans can’t decide if they like it

Some video game and anime fans are happy and satisfied with having just a 2-D waifu to satisfy their romantic fantasies. After all, a waifu would never lament that your salary is too low, or snoop around your messages and emails checking for traces of cheating, and she would always look as hot as when you first met her. Sounds perfect, but then, who is going to inherit yours and your sweet waifu’s genes of awesomeness?

A Chinese cosplay photographer has the best of both dimensions with his waifu Kongou, I mean, his wife who does an adorable cosplay of Kongou, and they have recently been in the spotlight on Weibo due to her pregnant Kongou cosplay shots.

This Chinese blacksmith will inspire you to give up everything and pursue your dreams!

There’s no doubt that swords are freaking awesome, and we bet everyone has dreamed about giving it all up and moving into the country to spend the rest of their days crafting badass swords, but we doubt many people have actually followed through. Which makes sense, because actually making swords looks freaking exhausting. And probably pretty difficult too.

But that didn’t stop Jia Huaijin from quitting his steady office job and doing just that!
