    I'm watching the anniversary show right now and it's amazing how China has come from broke ass poor to awesomeness.

    What do you think about China?

    Let's not get political. You can be negative but please do some research before you talk crap. Don't be racist.

    Let's talk about the food, places, food, culture, food, and stuff.

    Any chinese IMers here?

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOTHERLAND!!!

    Culturally China has a lot to offer, but let's face it the regime in charge aren't the most open are they?? (rhetorical question)

    Take 1930's Germany as an example with Hitler in charge, what they achieved is on a par with China, Germany was well and truly on it's backside until the Nazis pulled it up and out of depression and into a global force. Heindseit however shows us that the Nazis were Mudering Bullies and no matter how much they achieved for Germany in the time they were in power the means doesn't justify the result.

    I feel similar with China, as far as i'm aware they're not into mass genocide so that's a good thing, but their Human Rights record is pretty poor I believe, yet nothing will be done about it because we pour our money into their country consuming all they have to offer. All well and good when we can't see the damage it does to the individuals that are worked to exhaustion just to be able to afford enough to provide food for their family to survive!

    In Summary what they have achieved is fantastic, i'm just asking at what human cost has this been achieved??

    And aside from that I would LOVE to visit China and experience the vast cultural differences, not sure I could bring myself to try a black egg or the monkey brains tho! :)

    I said 10 years ago that china will be the most dominant country in 20 years time...

    Say just 5 years ago i did a stint for a uk company who produced generators, massive ones, they were bought out by a biggish US company, now that company couldnt sell to the chinese, which is why they bought a UK one... I was there 2 quarters and in that time every bloody model went to china.

    I like the chinese, i forgive and forget too....

    Happy National Day China

    Yea you have good points. Our record is pretty bad but like most countries, we're learning. Nearly every country has human rights problems. Just go to the ghettos in the states. But a wrong doesn't make another wrong right.

    I know we are perceived as a tightly controlled country. But what FOX and CNN don't tell you about is that there are a lot of sites and blogs which talk shit about the government. Just that when some f*cked up ideaologies (like KKK and cults) start to spread... Hasta la vista, baby.

    We do work hard. While it's good in a society way... it's not so good for the person doing the work. Take our schools for example. Kids on facebook bitch about class when in China this is their daily routine:

    6:00 wake up
    7:00 go to school, no I'm not joking.
    2 hour classes of intense torture with 2 minute breaks between (no joke)
    6:00 finish
    homework all the way till midnight

    yep. Like 9-5 job times 10.

    It might be necessary right now. I'm sure the school work will go down when our economy is stronger. So kids don't have to carry the future burden.

    In the west, people think big but don't work at it. In Asia, people work hard but are narrow minded. I guess no one's perfect.

    The black eggs taste a bit funky but it's not that bad. Monkey brains are banned so you can't have it anyways. Don't worry you'll find enough food, trust me;)

    Living in Australia. But will definitely be living in China soon. It just doesn't feel "right" here.

    I don't know about you but every time I go back, step out of the plane and breath in the air (even though it's polluted) my heart feels like a feather. Feels so good. Like breathing into a bong.

    I just have to be home. Feels natural. Dunno why...:confused::)

    That school schedule is same as in europe, so you dont work hard;)
    As for economy, China has low living standard (compared to the west), your GDP is rising, but not your living standard and on west people think big and they work
