It’s been a while since I posted on here. I have been so busy with math stuff that I didn’t have time to pay attention to much else. Now summer is here. I plan to get my chevelle project moving forward, do some home improvements and quite possibly get my CDL. I will try to post more pictures and some videos on here as well if I can figure that shit out.
You may have noticed that I haven’t posted in a while. This is because Maths have been kicking my ass lately, specifically trigonometry. Understanding those graphs is killing me. I think if I had a little more time to study them I would have nailed them but now we are on to the next section. The crazy part is my wife has studied all this in middle school and still understands it better than I do even though she hasn’t looked at that stuff in well over 20+ years. No wonder the Chinese are so good at their computer stuff. I hope my kids get at least half of her ability in math by the time they are in middle school. That would be awesome!
I remember this being a huge problem when I was over there and my kids were growing up. This was just one of the straws that broke the proverbial camels back and made me want to leave at that time. Chinese run factories are, for the most part, unethical and CAN and WILL do anything to save a buck, even if it is at the expense of the consumer. They just don’t give a shit (unless they can add it to the ingredients and make some money). Chinese regulators are either too corrupt or too ineffective to police all these factories. Hey, I am not being a troll here. ost Chinese consumers know this and anyone who has spent any amont of time in China doing any kind of business knows this too. And the ones who are ultimately paying for all this BS for this particular case are the young children in China.
Chinese bring their own noodles on airplanes. Why don’t they ban them from that? Oh yeah, and sunflower seeds. Lots and lots of sunflower seeds. Lots of peasant old ladies spitting sunflowers seeds into plastic bags.
Slowly, slowly we will bring CLEAN production back to the USA. It would be great to see the majority of US manufacturers get back here to the States, although it is unlikely, it is exciting to think about. I have been talking about something like this for years. Although higher wage is better for the Chinese worker, government forced minimum wage is,and will continue to cause inflation in the PRC. It will reach a point in the future where the cost of goods, wages, shipping costs, etc do not make it feasible for some industries to produce in China anymore. What will happen if all these companies and coutries bolt from China? Wages are cheaper in the west of China but logistics are a bear. Chinese rail is at the beck and call of the coal industry. I haven’t been back there for a while so I don’t know what the situation is now or ifit has improved. Any thoughts?
Chinese Government may be devious fuckers but their scientists are pretty cool and innovative.
Yep. I think we all knew this before this article even came out. It’s great to see this information getting confirmed though. I guess when you have 1.3 billion people you can have half of them work for the government censoring shit on the internet.
This….is….awesome….and funny and sad and it shows how fucked up federal organizaton can be. You know..the Federal Bullshit Investigators….I mean….at least in this one instance.
Not much to comment about on this but it is interesting. I think anyone who has lived in China knows how fast the efficient the censors are.
More about the air quality in Bejing. They really need to do something about this. At what point does it become less about economic development and more about their government and business infringing on the breathing real estate of normal citizen? What about the damage that this causes globally? I know people say that Europe and America went through the same thing back during our industrial revolution, but you can’t tell me we had 20 million people living in one city during ours. So we didn’t really go through the same thing at all.
