One of the clearest disadvantages of living in China is the accessibility and speed of the Internet, but of which are lacking here.

Everyone knows this is the case, but in my own life it really causes more frequent frustration than just about anything else.

And smoked ribs, jasonwon. Back in Montana, 'Merica, Sandy would make the best smoked ribs you could find in the whole state! She would use the 3-2-1 method while we would make a shooting contest using PBR cans we'd down as targets. I was quite the marksman with Laura, my beloved .22 calibre rifle! The winner would be able to be the first to taste Sandy's smoked ribs. She'd use hickory to give it a strong distinctive flavour. Whenever i'd win, I would do the Happy Piggy Spinning Piggy dance before taking a bite, to make them dribble at the sight of Sandy's smoked ribs. I really miss them and I wish one day, I'll be able to show that corner of paradise to my Chinese girlfriend!

How about having to travel by train. There are so many people. I really can't stand how crowded the trains can get and how difficult it is to buy tickets during holidays!

Too many disadvantages, however, still much better than most places on Earth at present.

Pollution, dangerous food, absence of trees, low income, cultural ignorance, crappy apartments, etc etc etc etc etc...

but, easily outweighed by all the good stuff...like 2 yuan subway passes, cheap cost of living and...uhm...I'll get back to you on that one

Pollution, lousy drivers, too many crowds. The health care system is questionable. But hey, it's probably a safer place to live than the good ol US of A. China does have it's fair share of nitwits and retards. but remember, for every malcontent in Canada there would be 39 in China because China has 39 times as many people as Canada. Like any place on earth; if you have money, then you do what you want. This question is as good now as it was 7 years ago. I have been here for 11 years.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
