Q: Have you jaywalked today?

So the rule of law, hardly ever seeing court room, not enforcing laws, but now computers and cameras will do all the work.https://www.newsweek.com/jaywalking-china-facial-recognition-surveillance-will-soon-fine-citizens-text-861401

Don't worry if you don't pay the jaywalking fine, we can deduct from your we chat and bank account without your approval since we control both entities anyway, thanks for your help. Can we sell you an upgraded smart phone that works even better.

Looks like the cities are about to get a decent revenue boost.  We all knew it was coming, the world started snapping pics of car's plates, what, 20+ yrs ago?  Only made sense to evolve, I just feel bad for the 22nd century sheep who will have these things following them everywhere day 'n nite.  I like tech same as the next guy, but we better learn to keep a handle on it or we WILL end like Terminator- fighting AI Systems for our lives!!

In Shenzhen they are starting to put up AI cameras that automatically match Chinese and Foreigners and send them a fine by mail. Happened to our Australian friend right in Futian Shenzhen by the Beijing University Hospital & Mountain park, theres a big computer screen there that shows the people who were caught jaywalking, he was mailed a fine to pay of 50 RMB, you can pay it by wechat, after it happens again you have to pay 200 and do some community service

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
