You're not supposed to hide both halves in the same place.  If it weren't for Shia Lebeouf, this would be the lousiest Indiana Jones movie ever

If only Truman and Roosevelt had been able to stop the spread of Communism into China during the 1940s. The world would be very different today.

Unfortunately we didn't develop an effective Mao inhibitor until 1952, and by then it was already too late.

Wow, valued at $300m.  Someone made a silly claim to their insurance company, especially since a similar item auctioned recently for like $700,000.  They guy claims the whole heist was $645m, but going by that last factoid, sounds like $1.5m was closer to the truth.

I would bet you any money that if you saw one of Hitler's paintings and did not know the artist, you'd never be able to tell it was his.

They're not bad. They're not good either. They have value solely because of the artist. Otherwise , they're less noteworthy than the typical art in a dentist's office.

It's not even that.  It's writing by a mass murdering communist piece of shiat.  It might have historical value, but it's not art.

1) That is very true...I don't think I would recognize any of his paintings.  And I were to receive some kind of test where I had to guess which ones were painted by him, any correct answers on my part would be due to luck.

2) On your second point, I have heard the same view many times before.

His paintings are about what you would expect to see hung in a Motel 6 to "class up the joint".

Lulz.

I have stayed at the Motel 6 on Tropicana Avenue in Las Vegas....and it's going to take way more than art to class up that dive.

Both spellings are correct, but "Zedong" has been more popular for a while.

And if I am incorrect in saying that, anyone...please let me know.

I actually prefer writing "Tse-Tung"....it's been that way since 9th Grade history class.

And I still remember our teacher joking about how a Texan would say that name.

"Mayo Tissie-TUNG!"

I'm sure that everyone in China pretends to be devastated by this.  Not being in China, and not being afraid of arbitrary arrest for saying mean things about Mao on the Internet, I say that Mao should be fired into the sun like the mass murdering psychopath that he was, and that all of his writings should have a health and safety warning stating that this drivel was written by a lunatic.

I...have a Huawei phone. His excellency Chairman Mao deserve high praise and great honours. Thanks to Mao, I understand the evils of western imperialism. I hope that, in spirit of the Chairman's largesse, I can one day have an upgrade to unlimited data. China is good for human rights! We need more China! And I humbly wish for unlimited monthly data so I can practice my human rights in the most Chinese way I can. If I had unlimited data, I would take pictures of important landmarks near sensitive areas, because I am confident in China's fair and reasonable surveillance priorities. Chairman Mao is great!

There are various ways to romanize Chinese. The one officially used in China is pinyin, in which his name is Mao Zedong.

Cursive relies on the reader understanding intricate nuances of stroke order and brush pressure.
