The WindowLicker: Di Atribe: What is that guard guarding against? He's watching the water.He is a member of the Peoples Armed Police.Wikipedia does a better job of explaining it, but they stand around and guard the stuff that the Chinese Government feels is especially important. They have the manpower to put as many guards as they want out there 24/7/365.The PAP have equipment and training that is much better than the police forces, and they will fark you up if you screw around with them. I had the opportunity to watch them beat down protestors and other malcontents several times.Their presence means that China looks at major infrastructure protection as a matter of national security. Given that the current General Secretary of the party has a Civil Engineering degree, this makes a lot of sense. Most of the upper leadership have engineering backgrounds, which is a great argument to cite when an engineer mentions how much better everything would be if engineers ran it all.

Gyrfalcon: zerkalo: "Yellow" River? That's lacist!Nobody ever calls it the Huang Ho.
jtown: I wonder how many toxins those people are inhaling/ingesting. China doesn't exactly have a great track record for keeping their rivers clean. That sediment's probably chock-full of nasty stuff.
