Q: Is your city sinking in China?

http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/2016/0625/Why-Beijing-and-45-other-cities-in-China-are-sinking

 

 

The cities are sinking because of water depletion under ground, how about oil fracking under ground, how about water displacement causing tectonic plates to move more often.

 

I'm sure the scientists will make predictions and scare the hell out of us and shake us down for money, and then apologize and do the same thing again when they figure out the mistakes they start preaching and come up with another theory.

 

Should be an interesting example of intelligensia versus dimwits to watch again.

When your overdue for an earthquake, this is a minor problem, but after a quake maybe the homeless sidewalk shitters will all be dead, one problem solved.

Mine isn't sinking! Not that we couldn't afford a bit lower altitude from current 18k m.

We can also rain endlessly! At the moment.

Some areas of Foshan are definitely sinking, but then the city is built on a swamp, what can you expect?

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
