Q: How to screw yourself?

with a heavy heart,


I have to tell this story


The typhoon hit Shandong with very heavy rains and if you travel by train from Jinan to Qingdao, you will notice thousands of green houses and a very heavy concentration of agricultual food supplies grown in the Weifang area.


So there is a flatland area near the river that is prone to flood, so long term planning, they built 3 huge dams and reservoirs to fix this problem.


Some government officials did not understand how much rain had fallen from the typhoon storm and instead of realeasing the water after the flood gradually, they open all 3 dams that were over flowing and flooded several counties destroying all the crops and flooding and killing thousands of pigs and livestock.


Cucumbers are double price in Jinan in the last 5 days. The government is giving money for housing damage but not farm and greenhouse damage and thousands of peasants who have lived at worked there all there life have lost everything.


The government has covered this up and the media for about 3 days but we chat is exploding, sometimes even censors can not cover up a disaster, the government did not want everyone buying every vegetable in the supermarkets creating a panic, so nobody knows anything. This is the great future superpower of the world. If you live in Shandong and like vegetables and pork, stock up now, I wonder how much food here is for other provinces that want be getting any food, also garlic is grown almost entirely here in Shandong. This is going to be a huge MAN MADE mess to fix. Today some counties are sill in 1 meter or higher water 5 days after the rains. The people responsible for this might want to be moving unless somebody has already put them in jail.

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
