China, a nation of thieves and liars? The hell you say.

"They always think Chinese judicial organs violate suspects' human rights,"


But because they are so tiny you can't feel them, so is it like it even happened?

That defense doesn't work in the US, for sure...

Traditionally you don't pluralise a word that ends with an S with an S. "James's dog" for example would be "James' dog"

Since the mid-1990s, an estimated 16,000-18,000 party officials, businessmen and other individuals have "disappeared" from China, according to a People's Bank of China report prepared in 2008 - taking with them an estimated 800 billion yuan.

A whole lot of "disappearing" happens in China. Do those numbers include "disappearance via government van"?

Well you know, no one is illegal, so we welcome all immigrants. Because to want to enforce our immigration laws would make me a bigot.

No, this is better. Buy your way into America before your government gets you into a party van for stealing:

This is why we are having a real estate boom in Honolulu right now. For seven years, more & more Chinese tourists are showing up. Hotels here are encouraging employees to learn to speak Mandarin & Cantonese. Huge construction projects of high end apartments have been launched in Kaka'ako to provide homes for people with big bucks. Yeah, we have to have some "Affordable Housing," so the hipsters are being offered $1,100/studios in renovated buildings, but the reality is we are gearing up for a throng of Chinese to move over here and become our wealthy overlords, much the way the Japanese did in the 80s & 90s.

I see what you did there

From the headline the first thing I thought of was skin grafts and figured it was just going to be another piece of yellow journalism.

Woah, easy folks. Chinamen are a protected class on Fark so stop telling the truth.

Traditionally, it's the USA and not the US.

If you don't care about tradition why is it mentioned? In a grammatical sense it has nothing to do with tradition.

This is Fark. Snark correct.

US is better than USA for a variety of reasons both traditional, grammatical, and stylistic.

The same can also be said of USA over US, although in my opinion US is better than USA.

So let's all just agree Pittsburgh has the best sports teams and get along peaceful like.

I was refering to the last word before the apostrophe. I don't care if US or USA is correct. Traditionally might have been the wrong word to use, grammatically is likely more correct. We are possibly both right, no?
