This is the second time in the last week I've seen a Fark post or headline combining the Chinese and Coke. I lol'd again. I'd forgotten that old rhyme.

...Maybe Bear Grylls should go to China more often.

I am now drinking a coke in Beijing, China. So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies. Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about. But trust me.... You don't. I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about. This is how bad info gets passed around. If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do. Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

"Crackers made in China are giving a fierce competition to Indian firecrackers this year. Over 151 new varieties of Chinese crackers, including rockets, musical crackers, sparklers and spinning fireworks have arrived in the market, said a wholesale dealer. "

That's wacist!

It's absolutely crackers.

The world today seems absolutely crackers,
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There's fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It's depressing and it's senseless, and that's why...

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're always friendly, and they're ready to please.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
There's nine hundred million of them in the world today.
You'd better learn to like them; that's what I say.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They come from a long way overseas,
But they're cute and they're cuddly, and they're ready to please.

I like Chinese food.
The waiters never are rude.
Think of the many things they've done to impress.
There's Maoism, Taoism, I Ching, and Chess.

So I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their yin, and yang-ese.

I like Chinese thought,
The wisdom that Confucious taught.
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The Chinese will survive us all without any doubt.

So, I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're wise and they're witty, and they're ready to please.

All together.

[verse in Chinese]
Wo ai zhongguo ren. (I like Chinese.)
Wo ai zhongguo ren. (I like Chinese.)
Wo ai zhongguo ren. (I like Chinese.)
Ni hao ma; ni hao ma; ni hao ma; zaijien! (How are you; how are you; how are you; goodbye!)

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
Their food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine, and lychees.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their yin, and yang-ese.

I like Chinese.
I like Chinese.
They only come up to your knees...

Hysterical.

I can walk to the local gas station/convenience store around the 4th of July or New Years, and it looks like an ammo dump with all the rockets and mortars.

Freedom!

I am indeed! However, for all the popularity of China on Fark.com... Fark isn't a blocked site. Some images are blocked though - definetly if posted from Imageshack which is blocked.

May I wish you good luck in Detroit? Which I hear on Fark is a rough town.

Thanks ;) I'm commuting between Burlington and Montreal now, to be closer to my girl. However, I love Detroit. It's a great city that just happens to be empty right now. The risks for a white suburbanite are near zero.

I lived in a great neighborhood, in a room in a mansion with two great roommates, right on a bus line, for $350/month, all utilities included. It was two blocks from Belle Isle Park, which is the major city park with beautiful lakes, bike trails, even a yacht club (which I wasn't rich enough to join). Everything is a project right now - lots of entrepeneurs, lots of cool new little coffee shops and bars, lots of group efforts.

Detroit is the place to BE.

/ So we have something in common - misunderstood home towns. ;)

350 bucks a month? You do make a great Detroit civic booster. I was just giving you a bit of good natured ribbing.

Actually, grew up in suburban Milwaukee, and big chunk of the family is still there. Another rust belt town that gets a lot of shiat (though not as much as Detroit for sure) but in fact is actually not at all a bad place to live cost-wise/stress-wise. I can understand why some folks I know didnt leave.

Aw man you should live where I do. We have almost legal fireworks the size of something really big.

It's really a lot better where I live, point of reference somewhere mentioned in this thread.

We have a lot fewer of those but man, do we ever have a boatload of that!!

Could the resident fark NRA faction answer me question

-- RCMP has banned bb guns here that resemble, as the News put it - AK-47 , going so far as finding the retailers and tracking down those that have been sold .

The News guy gave the reason that they could be turned in to a real semi auto assault rifle ..

I gave a great big WAT?? when News guy said that ,

now I gave it some thought and no matter what I came up with , even sticking some real gun parts in it , The only thing it would do is be a "face and hand blower off'r" to any one who tried to shoot it .

So am I missing something or is it as I expect , or is the news report retarded .

Oh and before you ask , what guns that the RCMP bans , is retarded

-- Canadian English ......

I asked if you could turn a Toy BB gun in to an actual Semi-auto rifle

News Reporter says yes --

The CBC says swapping out the bolt and barrel would do it

i still say no , I believe it is more complicated then that .

And where are you going to get the magazines ( Clips!) for it .

I also have come to realize that 4chan has become more mature and intelligent then Fark
