But can they see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

Subby: Therein lies the joke. They can't see why they need to deal with the smog, because they can't see *anything* through the smog.

Can anyone tell me why the U.S. is worse, or how this issue can be traced back to Republicans?

Because the smog is mostly the result of manufacturing of crap that will be exported to the US, done on behalf of US corporations, who have been outsourcing to China thanks to Republican support for tax advantages allowing overseas profits to go untaxed.

We have exported our smog, but also our jobs.

There's cinnamon sugar swirls in every bite?

The funny thing is that the answer is not "Let's deal with the smog" but "Let's make a camera that can see through the smog."

I'm hardly the healthiest of people, but I got legitimately winded trying to walk around Tianjin last spring. I'm 28 and run on a regular basis, I can't imagine what it'd be like to be really young or really old and walk around there. You can see the sun behind the craneimg.fark.net

On the one hand, I do feel badly for the folks who live there who really don't have any control over it. It's also bad for the environment and probably has an effect on the entire world.

On the other hand, fark China. Get your shiat together, assholes. You can't just do whatever you want without consequences. If we think the Tea Party morons have their heads jammed so far up their asses that they can't see the forest for the trees, they ain't got nothin' on the short-sightedness of the Chinese government.

What a shiathole. I've always laughed at the idiots who think China is going to "own" the U.S. They should have learned from the Soviets: don't try to out-greed the U.S. It doesn't end well.

Pretty much no. China has a much worse track record.

Sadly, these words ring true.
