Q: Is this true or is it a hoax ?

I just read on Yahoo News that Beijing Municipal Government has instituted a two fly maximum rule in public rest rooms.  At all the time, only a maximum of two flies will be allowed in any Beijing public rest room, if a third fly is detected inside it, it will not be allowed and must be destroyed.  Is this serious ?.  Has anyone else heard about this ?   Whose responsibility will be to kill the third fly present ?

Sometimes, if this is true, from sublime to ridiculous is just a short step.  What is really better for users, to eliminate that third fly, or to have the rest room clean so it does not attract any flies ?.  

I can see now someone calling the Police if a thrid fly is spotted inside a public restroom in Beijing.

What it means is that the same filth will remain, but the place will absolutely stink of cheap fly/insect spray.

Despite bathrooms being dirty, I haven't experienced many flies. However, throwing the trash bags at the trash heap, that's a different story.

Read it in my local Canadian paper today. Just a brief, but funny. I actually don't think the PUBLIC toilets are that bad. It's the privately owned ones in resaurants and such that are horrid.

 

Public ones usually have a live in caretaker that cleans it every couple hours.

Well, when you are running the government of the largest country on earth, sometimes you have to be really clear about sanitary standards. Mandates help to push the government agencies into action.

First ask Yahoo how many flies are present in their office. If more then two, then you look for the nearest bathroom to find salvation.

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
