Japanese Man Cycling Globe Has Bike Stolen in Wuhan, China

Recently, a young Japanese man with dreams of cycling around the world became the center of attention when his bicycle was stolen, but later returned, in Wuhan.

Recently, a young Japanese man with dreams of cycling around the world became the center of attention when his bicycle was stolen in Wuhan. His story and call for help in finding the bike has been forwarded over 60,000 times and is currently #1 on Sina Weibo. Last night around 11pm, police finally recovered the bicycle and returned it to him.

Keiichiro was once a nurse working in Yokohama when he decided to leave behind his previous life and circle the world on his bicycle. Planning to visit dozens of countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Americas before returning to Japan, his route had thus far taken him through Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Nanchang before he arrived in Wuhan on February 3rd.

While in Wuhan, Keiichiro mistakenly left his bicycle outside of a designated parking zone (leaned against a wall rather than on a rack) as well as beyond the designated hours of the parking area, whereupon it was stolen after the parking attendant had left for the day.

The modified bicycle has an estimated worth of around 13,000 RMB, and despite receiving offers of replacement bicycles from philanthropic netizens, Keiichiro was adamant to get his own bike back. In moderately decent Chinese, Keiichiro sent out this plea in a widely circulated video:

My bike is my true love, my girlfriend, my best friend. I hope it will be returned.

Luckily, police were able to find the bicycle in a residential area of Wuchang, and returned it to Keiichiro the same night.  Keiichiro plans to resume his journey, but says he will always remember the warmth and kindness shown to him by his friends in Wuhan.

幸运的冰棍化水:

Making a big deal over nothing. Does this deserve this much fuss? Everywhere, having one’s bike stolen is a small matter, yet this is raised to the level of a Japanese person losing his bike and Chinese people embarrassing themselves. May I ask, how many Chinese people haven’t lost their bikes? And how many got them back in 2 hours?

蓝梦飞花:

So many of our country’s people have their bikes stolen, how come we’ve never seen them so quickly recovered? Looks like they didn’t publicize their loss enough.

可怜的荆棘鸟:

Things that affect the country’s image must be dealt with quickly, but the people’s internal problems can be dealt with slowly.

钱程似瑾:

If only the bike I lost were found this quickly. [怒]

漆洪波:

He lost his bike, Wuhan embarrassed itself. [泪]

任志强: (responding to above)

China embarrassed itself.

幸福彼得大帝:

It’s okay, it was just a bike! Chinese people however have lost face in front of the world!

领尚臻品:

Losing a bike is a really normal thing, is it necessary to pay so much attention to this? Do Chinese people riding bikes in Japan or abroad never lose their bikes? Are there no thieves in Japan? Japanese people always think it is other people’s fault, never reflecting on their own problems/mistakes, including invading others! Our countrymen should also avoid blindly introspecting whenever it involves foreigners, cursing our own compatriots, even feeling ashamed! This is a kind of serf mentality and logic!

剃个光头去云南:

Fuck, evening losing a bike is considered news, and the lost bike is even recovered! That’s definitely the first time I’ve ever heard of such a thing.

大小姐丝丝:

I hear the bike has been recovered. If the police have the time, how come they don’t go look for missing children? There are so many in the country, and yet you guys fucking go all out in helping a Japanese guy find his bicycle? Do the Japanese pay taxes? Mobilizing such a large amount of manpower when a lousy bike is stolen, yet when so many parents have lost their children, we never see you guys screaming all over the world how embarrassing it is.

嘉兴小新:

NND, we never see the police work this hard when our own countrymen lose their bikes. Let’s ask those countrymen who have lost their bikes in Japan, do the Japanese police do so much to help find it?

快乐的猪猪行天下:

If it was lost, then it was lost, which country doesn’t have thieves? Chinese people have lost things in other countries, right? How come we never see you report those? Or is losing something in Wuhan automatically a damage to international image?

一抹蓝同学:

A foreigner losing his bike and appear on television and become news, but what about when a local Chinese person loses his bike? Who would report that?

    Sofa on bikes?

  • thunderkat211

    At least he got it back. That is one expensive bike. Good looking out by the Chinese police.

    • Ryo

      So what about the thousands of other bikes that’s stolen per day? Why don’t those get returned?

      By the looks of the Chinese commenters, this actually backfired.

      • Irvin

        Because those thousands of other bikes wasn’t use for riding around the world. The jap’s bike is more of a symbol of his aspiration rather than just a mere machine.

  • 平凡人

    I cycle my bike around my estate in China, never parked it by the road, chances of it being taken away is just too high, already lost 2 bikes.

  • Baroquian

    SOFAAAAAA

  • staylost

    That is pretty amazing!

    I’ve never heard of American police able to retrieve a stolen bike…

    • 山炮 ShanPao

      bah its nothing. This man went to Wuhan and lost his bike… and got it back. My pakistani friend (medical student here in China) went to Wuhan and lost his virginity… he told me when he returns to Pakistan his parents have found him a wife and he will have his virginity returned by that point. ;-S

      • BJ Junaidi

        hahahaha,,, Great point,,,,,, I guess Wuhan is not that bad after all

      • pervertt

        Lucky your Pakistani friend is a man. If he was a she, she would be fucked.

          Hahahaha!

  • Jeff

    His bike doesn’t look any different than my 1,200 rmb Giant Hunter 2.0 bike

  • Appalled@everything

    Silly little man. Expecting to not be robbed or stolen from while passing through China. The statement about where his bike was and how the attendant was off work for the day – What a lot of waffle. Makes no bloody difference where/what/who/when/how in China. It was stolen because he was a silly trusting little man.

    • Bruce Tutty

      In future I will be more intelligent as you instruct, and mistrust everything you say. You are right, that is much more preferable.

      • Appalled@everything

        Where do I instruct something? Are you hearing voices? What are the voices instructing you to do now Bruce?

    • kaibotski

      He is a little man for trusting?
      The revolution is hijacked and greed has penetrate the masses.
      The people are what’s little here for allowing thief to occur.
      The traditional of dictatorship of the proletariat has been stolen by reactionaries. The party has only tried it’s best to divide all working people just as the capitalists. There should not be theft to occur in the glory of the people’s revolution. CHINESE PEOPLE and CHINA that’s why the world laughs at you. You fail to follow the tradition and the revolution spirit of Marxism. It is time. You are now strong enough to take back from the reactionary forces in the party. The party needs to be purified. You can be the strongest example of the proletariat dictatorship. NOw is what Marx predicted. The capitalist world will crumble if the action is now!!! This is what Lenin foresaw, and this is what Marx saw. You can be the freest people in the world to assist others. There is no country or race in the people revolution. 造反有理革命无罪

      • Appalled@everything

        Shouldn’t you be out on a ledge somewhere?

        • Kaibotski

          Nah!! I like to hang on the interwebz and pretend what i say is important. It’s tre fun.

        Hey dumb ass, How do you think China got strong? It sure as fuck wasn’t from Communism. When you people were all communist you were poor. Then you went to a Capitalist economy and now you’re a very rich country, do you think that is coincidence? So go back to Communism and you will be a poor country again. In fact I hope you do go back to a Communist economy because then we won’t have to compete with you anymore because China would no longer be competitive in the world marketplace. The Cultural Revolution, what a fucking joke. How many millions of people died from that disaster of an experiment? Try reading some history that wasn’t written by your commie government. Here’s the real truth you fucking dildo, Capitalism produces wealth and Communism drains an economy dry. Because Communism doesn’t produce anything because it doesn’t inspire anybody to produce anything, all it does is take take take until there is nothing left to take. If you people could just get rid of your dictators and have real freedom you would then have a truly have a great country.

  • Appalled@everything

    Oh and that policeman shaking his hand should seriously be THE face of the Chinese police dept. He looks like every single policeman I ever saw here.

  • Johnny Basic

    Considering that half the news played on the Shanghai subway consists of the latest clips of cute cats falling off furniture and white babies gently toppling over, I’m not at all surprised that this is ‘considered news’!

  • Johnny Basic

    I’ve found that the police tend to be quite nice to foreigners.

    Could this be anything to do with the fact that foreigners actually manage to interact with the police with a measure of dignity, without wagging their finger and bellowing at them?

    The Japanese guy probably asked politely if they wouldn’t mind helping him out. As opposed to the local method, which would be to burst into the police station, cut in line, and give the officer on duty a face-full of halitosis as he issues a shrill demand that she help him NOW!

    • staylost

      For those of you not from China, or never having visited, the above comment isn’t even slightly hyperbole.

      I’ve had cops help me repair my bike on the sidewalk, I always see people yelling at the cops whenever the officer politely reminds them not to do something illegal (while wagging their finger right the officer’s face), people do cut in line right in front of officers, have hallitosis much worse than what you will find in Malawi, Cambodia, or Peru, and act like the police should be their servants.

      I wouldn’t go nearly so far as to say it is the norm for people in China, but by my count in Hangzhou, about 1 out of 10 people act this way and it stands out. The other 9 out of 10 agree that it is dreadful, but they rarely actually do anything about it.

      • Kong

        The police ARE supposed to be public servants. Or course feelings of human dignity etc. aren’t generally included in job descriptions. Anyway, what you wrote is totally true. Not all cops, but many of them really don’t have anything better to do than be nice. Unless you’re perceived as making political or bureaucratic trouble for them, that is.

        • jin

          wow they must be glad that these cops are not american cops :P
          pointing a finger at them can get you shot.

          • Kong

            Most types of Chinese police are not permitted to carry firearms.

          • staylost

            On the other hand, this from jin, is the definition of hyperbole.

            Cops in “America” don’t go around shooting every jerk they find. I’ve seen this happen to American cops and they stood there calmly and told the person to calm down. When the person didn’t calm down they said that they weren’t asking them to calm down, they were telling them. Then, after the person still wouldn’t stop, the cop physically moved them out of the area and left them to be.

            If you act like you are going to draw a weapon, do draw a weapon, or threaten to draw a weapon, the officer will probably drop you hand to hand and cuff you and take you back to the station to cool off.

            To get shot at you have to threaten cops with a weapon of some sort, not be in hand for the cops to take down, and not follow orders to stand down while holding out your (empty) hands.

            I’m sure you can find some example of a trigger happy American cop, but you can find exceptions to everything. That doesn’t make it the rule.

          • DRaY

            Dude American cops are fucking assholes!! I have never seen cops with such a feeling of entitlement than American cops. I’ve got tons of stories where I had to get in their ass and they had to apologize to me… FUCK COPS.
            Never had issues with police anywhere else, except for 1 asshole Carabinieri in Italy and I blasted his euro-trash bitch ass… I ain’t afraid of shit in faggot as Europe. …..Cops here are pretty helpful, but I don’t expect miracles from them. Chinese ppl are cool for the most part… a plenty rough around the edges, thats all.

          • staylost

            @DRaY,

            From the sounds of it, I’m glad cops give you trouble. You sound like a real tosser.

          • Kong

            Stay Lost: Frankly, it’s just as outrageous to suggest that American cops are super responsible as well. It will greatly vary depending on where you are. When I was in uni, I had a cop draw a gun on me (no warning) simply for moving my stuff into my dorm through the window. When I failed to admit that he was in the right for drawing a weapon on me, he called all of his cop buddies who treated me like shit until the captain finally arrived and told them off. The captain was a nice and reasonable person. American cops are trained to treat everyone like a potential criminal and to not have a conversation. Talking with most American cops will be like talking to a wall because that is how they are taught. They are in the right, you are in the wrong, there is no discussion/explanation; admit they have power and move on. My point is that is varies.

            Compare that to Chinese cops? Well the notable difference is a lack of firearms and professional authority. Chinese cops are simply more amiable because they haven’t had it trained out of them.

          • DRaY

            @staylost
            If you ever have a policeman walk up to you and treat you like a criminal for no reason, you would feel the same way I do. In 20 years of living in America, I have only had a 4-5 personal run-ins with asshole cops, but I have cop buddies and I call them assholes to their faces, because some of them intentionally fuck with people in the streets. WHy? BECAUSE they think they can get away with it!!!
            I’m generally a nice guy, but if you come at me wrong I’ve gotta pop the claws and go for the jugular.

          • staylost

            DRaY, I don’t know your situation, because I wasn’t there. I’m just fucking with you here on the internet because I think I can get away with it.

            American cops and Chinese cops have both been huge jerks to me before, but most haven’t been, so I don’t try to pin it on all of them. Most of the time they are real cool.

            Anyway, sounds like you know what you are doing, but you just seem really angry, dude. Maybe the police will never get you, but your blood pressure might.

    • Jeff

      I have been riding my Giant bike around China for about 3 years now. Chinese police are total characters to me. They typically laugh and smile and say hello or of course HELLO LAOWAI! But trust them to get my bike back if it is stolen. hmmm

    • http://thecapitalinthenorth.blogspot.com jixiang

      Maybe because foreigners don’t need to shout for the police to take some notice of them.

    • slim

      Wow! It’s the complete opposite in Japan. japanese people just ignore the police if they try and stop them and keep on walking/talking into their cell phones. So the cops take out all their frustrated authority on foreigners, even commenting on 2chan that ‘gaijin stop me doing my job with dignity’. F*ckers.

  • Castro

    13000 ¥ ?? Maybe 1300.

    His bicycle is his girlfriend? I think he better put Ningbo on his route and pick up one of those hot little android numbers! They have the cutest little O mouths… :-p

    • staylost

      They said 13000 RMB, not yen.

      Bikes that cost more than cars are not uncommon in Oregon, where biking is a religion, and I’m sure they exist in Japan too. 13000 RMB is only a couple grand US, good enough for a mid-range bike if you are a cycling fanatic.

      “It’s all about performance, its the name of the game, I pump up my tires and I oil my chain, performance…”

      • Patrick

        Yeah but he modified that bike to look like every other crappy bike here.

    • jin

      you must be old right?
      racing bikes these days cost ATLEAST 1000 euro.
      so 1300 RMB > 1500 euro is normal.

      • jin

        eh i mean 13000 RMB

  • typingfromwork

    It’s nice that they’ve been able to find the bike. A feelgood story at last, eh?

    To be fair, the guy left it locked against a wall at night- anyone with a truck can just pick it up and take it home. Should always be more careful with your possessions.

  • http://www.mylaowailove.com 陶陶谈老外

    It is very suspicious that his bike was found so quickly.

    • staylost

      Really? You think there is a conspiracy to be found in bike thieving?

      • Boris

        He’s got a point. Where I live there are just a handful of foreigners. A Canadian guy who’d done a few stints on TV had his bike pinched. He went to the police and… lo and behold… it was recovered the next day. The day after that he was on the front cover of our local newspaper, shaking the cops hand. Where I live there are two bike markets. Out front are the 50Y Feng Huangs. Want a sparkling Giant and you will get taken round the back.

        • Jimney Cricket

          A friend of mine wanted to buy an electric scooter and the guy in the shop came out with a pair of bolt cutters and told him to choose any that were parked on the street. Now I shop with bolt cutters and leave my credit card at home :D

      • Jimney Cricket

        Yes. Much like the mystery concerning the North Korean/Chinese fishing boat conspiracy. I never did find out if the North Koreans stole the fish as well as the fishing boat’s petrol

  • James Langford

    I’m so glad this has been resolved! I know there’s still a lot of mistrust between the Japanese and the. I hope this serves to bring these two great nations together.

    • Patrick

      Yeah, the first step to putting massive rape and murder behind them is one young hipster Japanese guy demanding he get his bike back, placating his Chinese friends and riding into the sunset with his two-wheeled girlfriend. Come to think of it – sounds like a potential theme for a Japanese anime storyline.

      • Jimney Cricket

        Yep…No rape murders happened anywhere else during WW2. Only by Japanese. No other country committed atrocities… just the Japanese. No-one killed, tortured, raped or maimed civilians during WW2… just the Japanese. Jesus, if it weren’t for these damned Japanese war would be so civilized. Shame these Japanese devils had to spoil war for everyone.

  • BJ Junaidi

    This could have happened in any country. I don’t think this reflects any thing about the good people of Wuhan. I am an American and I travel to China all the time, I can tell you that China has the least amount of crime than any country I’ve been to. I am yet to see a street fight there. This story should have never made the press.

  • Ho hum

    And again the fenqing are up in arms about how terrible it all is and how embarrassing for China, always kowtowing to foreigners. A feelgood story that makes the people and authorities of Wuhan look good.

    If these keyboard warrior pinheads are the future of China, there’s no need for concern. Seriously.

    • typingfromwork

      It’s balanced by all those people who said China lost face. What? people get their shit stolen all the time anyway. This at least had a happy ending.

  • JAMES STANLEY

    He should get a girls’ bike if he’s going to dress like that.

  • Nillig

    It’s not very often that mainlanders get to see a real nice touring bike like this. I had two shitty bikes stolen in my two years living in China, and I took every precaution against theft. No friggin way would I ever leave my nice touring bike outside unattended.

    • BJ Junaidi

      what is the big deal???? its a story about a boy and his bike. it happens every day

      • pervertt

        It IS a big deal. First, it is a tourer and not an ordinary bike. I can’t see this guy riding off on a replacement ‘Flying Pigeon’ donated by a well wisher. And second, most people instinctively feel embarrassed when bad things happen to international visitors in their home countries. I say ‘most’ because there is always a minority that resents the presence of foreigners and does not care that a fellow citizen has let the home side down. Having said this, I can understand the cynicism of some Chinese who may have had less spontaneous service from the gong an when they had things stolen.

        • Jimney Cricket

          They probably got his bike back quickly because they didn’t want a Jap to stick around.

  • lonetrey

    seems like several Chinese netizens are annoyed about such a small problem getting solved so quickly just because the guy was a foreigner.

    Well, at least they understand that they lost face in the international limelight.

    • Anon

      I don’t think most people who constitute the “international limelight” would see this story as a loss of face. Even people here who probably know something about Chinese resentment of the better treatment that foreigners often receive see it as a “feel-good” story.

  • charles

    The reason native Chinese bikes don’t get recovered is because China doesn’t have to worry about losing “Face” with them.

    However, recovering a stolen bike so quickly for a foreigner is China telling the world how good it’s police are etc etc.

    And native Chinese are anything but polite when it comes to matters like this.

  • dim mak

    It’s true, face matters for Asians

    They could just treated him like a local – not do anything for a week, then tell the guy too much time has passed and they had to stop ‘searching’
    Better? Worse? Iunno.

    And what is with Japs and the stupid bandana/wool hat look? Same with Koreans. Maybe that’s why his girlfriend is a bike.

    • kaibotski

      face only matters for those who are not politically conscience. Racism and patriotism has no place in the dictatorship of the proletariat. We are all working class.. this is all division created by the rich.. You can say Japs are Chinks, and I can say Gringo are Limeys. He is a humble man gave up everything to see the world, so what? You should have the same right. Why does what a person wear mean so much to you? It’s the political consciousness that matters. The Communist Party of China has been corrupted by reactionaries. It’s time to continue the revolution, the reactionaries has to be purged! 造反有理革命无罪

      • Jimney Cricket

        Yeah? and replace your government with what…the shop owner who sells with faulty weighing scales? The businessman that publicly humiliates his staff? The taxi driver that takes the long way? The office worker that does a half-assed job? The doctor that takes Hong Bao to do the surgery right? The policeman who illegally owns 198 apartments. The 70% of university graduates that cheated on their exams…. hey how about you pay Bill Gates to get Microsoft to develop a program to run China. It’ll probably crash less times.

  • Olrik

    He looks like a fruit…

  • Jay K.

    perhaps the only reason why the police came to investigate is because the bike is over 10k. ive had 4 bikes stolen, 1 motorbike stolen w/ plates&registration and an actual seat from my 5th bike stolen here in beijing.

    pretty much the excuse i get as to why they aren’t so into finding out was that each one of my bikes, motorbike does not exceed the value of 10k.

    also i’ve had an e-bike also stolen. this is in a matter of 4-5 yrs in beijing.

    “If it was lost, then it was lost, which country doesn’t have thieves? Chinese people have lost things in other countries, right? How come we never see you report those? Or is losing something in Wuhan automatically a damage to international image?”

    in response to this guy’s comment.

    the last thing I remembered being stolen from me was actually in Oklahoma, and to think I’ve lived in NY all my life. 2 sandbags, and a wood space bracket for the back of my pick up truck, total value 70 dollars for wood/nuts/bolts material and sandbag. several hours w/ my dad and i making that wooden space bracket.

  • themig

    lets get one thing straight , the police behaved correctly but the newsmedia did not. by headlining a non-article showing that chinese reporters care about showing face

  • Kenneth

    Never leave your bike anywhere in Wuhan. I learned the hard way. I stayed in China for two years and when I first got there I paid 4000 rmb for a new scooter. After coming back from travelling during Chinese National holiday I found it stolen. It was stolen from the gated apartment complex I lived at the time and the so called guards didnt see anything. My two roommates also got bikes stolen from the apartment complex and they had locks on them. Moral to the story, if you have a bike in Wuhan dont forget to have it double locked and bolted down to something…….

    • Boris

      Happens all the time. The guards never ‘see’ anything.

      • Jimney Cricket

        That’s because the guards steal them…ever wonder how much they get paid?

  • http://www.accessfbchina.com/ Rod

    I think police get a bad rap. Usually the guys are nice and will go out of their way to help, at least in my experience. When shit hits the fan however, they’ve got a job to do, and unfortunately the Chinese government is their boss.

  • DRaY

    if ths guy wants to ride around the world, im sure his bike will be stolen again…. especially in the middle east and america. good forbid s. america… that shit will be gone!!!

  • rollin wit 9’s

    Why can’t chinese people understand the difference between LOST and STOLEN or at least use the proper word for the situation at hand. This has bugged me for ages. When ever I hear a chinese person say ‘i lost my phone’ I have to question them if they mean lost or stolen. 9 outta 10 times they reply with stolen.

    • Jimney Cricket

      Yeah quite funny that. The distinction is quite obvious to a foreigner

  • Ju

    The police seemed not concerned that much about my bike which was stolen in Unite States. What a twisted mind! Come on it’s just a thief, they are everywhere all over the world.

    8 Words. 造反有理革命无罪. The man is not a foreigner but a proletariat who wants to see the world without exploiting others by using gas for cars or planes. You see him as a foreigner because you are now taught to hate another proletariat. You government has failed you. Remember you national anthem. Remember that you don’t want to be a slave. Remember that the enemy is always trying to disrupt and distort the revolution. We are comrades. Your party is infiltrated by REACTIONARIES! STAND UP!!!

        Middle class participants of the class struggle are not proletariats? At worst he’s a petty bourgeois, still doesn’t make him not eligible to be a working class.

          The bourgeoisie and proletariat are generally conflicting classes in Marxism. Management vs wage-worker. The categories are kind of blurry until there is a conflict of interest, at which point one’s class becomes pretty clear.

          You’re right that he could be part of the proletariat, but Keiichiro no longer belongs to the class of wage-earners, and as a vagabond probably couch-surfs or does odd jobs, which really doesn’t put him in any productive class, and being intentionally unemployed means he is definitely not working class, and has little to relate to their struggles and misfortunes. He is a vagabond, not a comrade.

    8 words comrades. 造反有理革命无罪. I troll enough here.
    I don’t believe in countries. Every nation has it’s issues but all working class people has the same. We give to the rich for rights that are ours. I’ve posted here trashing Chinese people, HKers or whoever. but we have no colours. We are either rich or we are poor. I don’t think HKers make me more poor or the “West” makes me poor, or that i’m poor at all. Half the shit here is just a fucking joke. It’s about me vs you mentality, and petty pride of nations. Where is the root of the revolution that brought us here? You think that Communism is bad because you or someone you know is affected by it? What about the beginning of all those revolts? It’s been hijacked. We as people should be free to express. We as people should have to right to not be judge as long as we don’t hurt others. You so call proud Chinese to examine the fact that the old world pride has cause the 100 years of shame. You should understand that China is a diverse civilization. Yet you hate on others who are trying to have it better. Such a great civilization… yea.. I applaud all of you with my one hand clap. où est l’esprit de la révolution? HUH!?? Remember that l’internationale was written by the French. NO!! NOT FRENCH. BUT THE PEOPLE.

    • kaibotski

      FUck!! You are all either jealous to have no meaning in life and be comfortable as a capitalist or you are all fucking stupid.
      Where is the revolution?? Sing you national anthem!!! FUCKING SING IT! O you don’t like it.. so what do you sing? you want money and power but you don’t have any so you judge yet you want what they have.. Great… You see how failed this logic is? Remember the long march? I mean remember all the good stuff about the movement? If you love your anthem you would hate your country. if you love freedom then you should not believe in countries. America sure it’s racist.. but hey no one say they true democracy. lol.. 2 fucking parties sponsored by same people.. they should make it one like China. it’s same interest anyways.
      Citizens who desires freedom has a duty to fight, not just whine on the internet. You say your world is in tatters, yet you have taken no action. Self doubt is the mind killer. Sure i bitch online.. but hey.. I actually try to do something in my community. Who here tried to do anything in their community? seriously.. I do action here. I do make changes. YOU!??? Just shit on the interewebz.. HCore… That’s why the world laughs. fuck 100 years of shame. make it 10000. You have failed you revolution duty. it’s about working class.. you are all too FAILED.All your sisters are in the sex trade.. because of the whole old world ideas of male is better complex.. really? Stop pointing fingers, and do something about it. it’s not about HKers sucking white dicks, or chinese girls leaving the country. they leave because everything sucks and all of you know it.. Your old system gave you Manchus who told you to shave half your head.. you did it.. I don’t hear shit about Manchus fucking your shit up.. or that you have Mongol blood..!!! YEA!! YOU HAVE MONGOL BLOOD!!! that shit is for the old world. your 5000 means shit. Rome has couple thou.. everyone had a chance. so.. fuck.

      • kaibotski

        Rome has couple too.. I meant. Like Persians and Europeans, and Slavics… Your 5000 years of “Glorious” .. yea.. You say you are Chinese? 5000 years ago there’s is all Hons!!! Shit really? Really ? Remember 3 World Destiny? Fuck being Chinese, fuck being European, fuck Japanese and Korean and whatever is the hype to talk about here… You are all the same blood at some point. Ganghis Khan made half the world his full of his sperm or his armies sperm.. yea.. what the fuck is full Chinese anyways? go back to the roots of revolution. poor people fight in armies because they care about nationalism… the “haves” always just hang back either they co op and kick ass or just surrender. You chinks are fools. I’m not actually racists.. I say chink or white trash just all the same.. It’s just fucking stupid. Too bad I was in China and HK long enough to fucking care.. We as people need to smarten up. Obviously laughing at you folks as forgs in a well slinging shit as each other doesn’t help.. so.. really.. revolt or something,. or STFU.

    Stay Lost: Frankly, it’s just as outrageous to suggest that American cops are super responsible as well. It will greatly vary depending on where you are. When I was in uni, I had a cop draw a gun on me (no warning) simply for moving my stuff into my dorm through the window. When I failed to admit that he was in the right for drawing a weapon on me, he called all of his cop buddies who treated me like shit until the captain finally arrived and told them off. The captain was a nice and reasonable person. American cops are trained to treat everyone like a potential criminal and to not have a conversation. Talking with most American cops will be like talking to a wall because that is how they are taught. They are in the right, you are in the wrong, there is no discussion/explanation; admit they have power and move on. My point is that is varies.

    Compare that to Chinese cops? Well the notable difference is a lack of firearms and professional authority. Chinese cops are simply more amiable because they haven’t had it trained out of them.

    • moop

      you idiot, he probably thought you were taking things out of the window instead of putting them in. normal people use a fuckin door. he may have been over zealous to pull a gun out, but you actually probably would look suspicious unless he was observing you for a long period of time

      • Kong

        I’m glad you’re impartial enough to assume you know more about the situation than I’ve told you. I had a bunch of stuff outside and was throwing them inside; there was no basis for thinking that I was taking things out of the room. On move-in day. In the middle of the day. That I would have to carry heavy loads without assistance to a door on the other side of the entire building is irrelevant.

        Let’s go over the point that seemed to blow over your head: Rather than telling me to stop what I was doing and explain myself, he came up from behind and pulled a gun on me.

        That point, of course, was highlighting one of my experiences with the irresponsibility and entitlement of some American cops. I would think that it would be more rational to extract that rather than blowing by that in an attempt to characterize my action as “suspicious” or not.

        • moop

          i’m sorry, did the american cop hurt your fuerdai feelings?

          • Kong

            Neither I nor my family has ever been “wealthy” or (“nouveau riche”, I suppose) as the term 富二代 implies. Unless you consider a government worker or non-profit as such. Oh yea, and I am not from China. The anecdote was used to highlight the case that american cops’ training and access to firearms puts them in a position to be far more dangerous and unlikeable than Chinese cops.

            Your persistent use of name-calling in place of constructive commentary places you in the category of troll. Have your fun.

        • moop

          ok ok, i admit it. lets be friends. as your new friend i would like to recommend a product to you, its called johnson&johnson “no more tears” shampoo. i hope it helps

          • Kong

            Your product recommendation is appreciated but ineffective, as merely the high pH of water acts enough of an irritant to cause boo-hooing.

          • moop

            haha, i actually do like you now kong

    The Japanese won’t even let Chinese strawberry farmers veer from the side of the street that leads directly from their place of work to their dormitories in small Japanese towns. The entire town stands on street corners making sure the Chinese minimum wage workers don’t get to see anything except work and their pallet.

    And we let these Japanese roam throughout China as if the mass baby rapes didn’t occur at all.

    • bob

      No Japanese forced the Chinese to be be strawberry farmers, they agreed to the conditions prior to starting their job. It’s call a free market, they don’t like it don’t work there. China also has this thing call a free market, where goods are available for consumers to freely choose how to spend his/her money even if *OH MY GOosH* he is Japanese. tone down the hate if you want to be accepted in the global economy, your racist antics are quite backwards. So you would perfer to freely roam in Japan? Would that make you feel better? Actually you can, but really don’t baby rape anyone now. The people who has commited those crimes are either dead or dying, what’s the point to blame a group of people who didn’t take any part of that old Niking thing? I mean do Isrealis go around bashing Germans still? They had it way worse. You should thank the Japanese to invest in China, will out foriegn investment you probably wouldn’t be able to express your backwards village (Hon ha Jai) mentality in the interwebz with your foriegn tech computer… too bad You still have no google.. Maybe if your country is not so much of a fuck up, your farmers don’t have to leave and agree to horrid working conditions overseas, maybe they don’t want to starve and be a racist frog in the bottom of a well (Jai dai gi wah). Haha.. angry proud Chinese venting on the interwebz, so hardcore la.

        Good reply Bob. I couldn’t have said it better.
