Well that brought me down.

That's a good use for the irony tag.

Add some Kahlua and turn it into a mudslide!


/so sorry

THey were killed by a force of nature in school on a national holiday. If I were still a student, I'd bring this up in class on Monday.

Peng said the cause of the landslide was not yet known, but Yiliang was struck by an earthquake last month that killed 81 people and devastated several villages. In addition, rain has lashed the region of mountains and sheer valleys.

Yeah. Pretty sure the things after "not yet known" had something to do with it....

Is it ironic that the Irony tag was also buried in the landslide?

Their schools are already a disaster.

/sorry

Are they going to be able to identify all the bodies? You know, since they all look alike.

MBooda: Damn. I was really hoping this was Irving, Texas.


There aren't any hills in Irving steep enough to have a landslide, apart from the lack of seismic activity. What's your problem?

Is this still the primary school for the village? Or will they now have to use the secondary school?

I can't listen to that song in the car anymore. Been pulled over twice now only to turn the engine back on and hear "Don't bring me doooown..." I prefer "Mr. Blue Sky" anyway.

/not all that old
//your lawn is nice though
///do I have to get off it?

Someday you will find them caught beneath the landslide

This probably sounds like a really rude question but does anyone know, within China's one-child policy, if a couple that loses a child to something like this disaster gets to have another child? I know that in most situation, loss of life is not viewed as a catastrophe by Chinese officials because there are always plenty of people to replace any losses. Families, of course, don't view the lives of their children twith the same callous disregard. Just wondering.

May I be so bold as to make a suggestion? Farking move!
