Introducing the next generation in portable gaming – or not…

Oh! Look at our great leader and his magnificent ride. I wish I can be in that car, waving to all my admirers on the street. Too bad the model the chairman rides is never for sale.

Well not until now…

In a total shock to airport security across the globe, an Asian male in his twenties managed to board a flight from Hong Kong to Canada. In what would be described as “something only seen in movies”, the man disguised himself as an old Caucasian – “Mission Impossible” style.

Apparently he is seeking refugee status in Canada and he used the frequent flyer card of a “real” Caucasian to pass boarding checks.

Details on how he actually managed to bypass multiple layers of airport security checks and his real motives for going through so much trouble are unclear at the moment.

Below are some videos on the incident:

Oh yeah! China’s right on track for World domination.

First, the absurd economic growth and now usurping the West in technological advancements.

Here’s some technical jargon from Engadget:

“The fully operational Tianhe-1A, located at the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin, scored 2.507 petaflops as measured by the LINPACK benchmark. That moves it past Cray’s 2.3 petaflops Jaguar located at Oak Ridge National Lab in Tennessee. Tianhe-1A achieved the record using 7,168 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPUs and 14,336 Intel Xeon CPUs consuming 4.04 megawatts.”

Just to note: I’m actually being sarcastic. I don’t think China is ahead of anybody technologically.

This is actually pretty old news, but I thought it was worth highlighting just for the video alone.

A Hong Kong girl is caught in the following video snorting the longest ketamine line ever. Apparently there was a K snorting contest in a club across the border in Mainland China.

This girl participated and well…watch the video:

Having watched the video, I think this is just insane. I think it’s crazy to snort anything that long.

The girl won the contest and became the “Queen of K”.

These were her last moments caught on video…

Not really sure how to explain such a story. It is definitely a WTF times two.

So in Henan province there is this cross-dressing 17 year old boy that came up with a plan, with two of his friends, to make some money. The plan was to get married to a mentally retarded man and then leave with the bride price. I guess this boy must really look like a girl to begin with. I couldn’t stop laughing, already, at this point in the story.

Now this is where the story gets really bizarre: at the night of the wedding, the uncle of the groom (presumably the person mainly responsible for taking care of him) intervenes. Turns out the uncle is one sick bastard and probably wanted this young “maiden” to himself, with the whole marriage as a foil for him to keep a sex pet. So he gets the retard to leave and then proceeds to rape the “bride”.

By now this cross-dresser realizes that he is not the only one with a twisted mind and flees. However, he gets caught by the villagers who rip his (I’m getting confused) clothes off to find that “she” is a he.

In the end, both sides sue each other. This I find incredibly hilarious cause you know what is going to happen – both go to jail. I can’t believe they actually went to court for this. What kind of justice were they expecting to be served?

After all this, I think it’s a shame they never became a family; those two are a match in heaven.

Here’s the video (with subtitles):

The guys over at Next Media are really trying hard to keep viewers “pleased”. If their funny and over-the-top animated news weren’t enough, they have now started to offer weather reports.

Staying true to their Taiwanese-media-style of attracting viewers as the number one priority, these weather reports are very attractive.

Or should I say the girls that are in it…

This is just horrible – trying to be “creative” by combining the iconic Snoopy character with a tartan pattern probably inspired by Burberry. It’s a double violation of copyright in one T-shirt.

And who thought of the name Sccoby?

Sucks to be in the wrong location. Here are some fine examples…

The thought of advanced vending machines and Japan pops into mind. Who would have thought that China has also started with some “eccentric” vending machines of their own.

Just in season, an entrepreneur has imported a vending machine from Japan and stocked it full of “hairy crabs”. Chinese, especially from the Southern region, love to eat hairy crabs at this time of the year.
