Man Spends 5 Years Walking Home Carrying His ‘House’ on His Back

Liu Lingchao, a Chinese man from Guangxi who has spent the past 5 years walking across the country on a journey back to his hometown carrying a portable "house" (makeshift shelter) on his shoulders, collecting recyclable garbage to make a living.

May 21, on the Liucheng County stretch of the 209 National Highway in Guangxi Liuzhou city, Liu Lingchao carrying his mobile “home” on his shoulders as he walks on the road.

Guangxi Man Spends 5 Years Carrying “House” on Shoulders Throughout Journey Home

With suntanned skin and wearing Liberation shoes, Liu Lingchao is walking forward quickly while carrying a 1.5 meters wide, 2.2 meters tall “house” on his shoulders. After walking about 50 meters, he puts down his “house”, retraces his steps picking up discarded water bottles, sorts and places them in several woven bags, then lifts up his “house”, repeating this over and over again. 38-year-old Liu Lingchao is from Guangxi province Liuzhou city Rong’an county Tantou town. 20 years ago, he left his hometown to find work in the Guangzhou and Shenzhen area. After the idea of returning home came to him 5 years ago, he made a 60kg simple house like this, and departed from Guangdong walking towards his hometown. Along the way, Liu Lingchao refused to to accept anyone’s help, relying only on collecting discarded waste for a living, carrying his “house” forward on his journey by day, and camping out by the side of the road at night. He has already worn out three such “houses”, and today only has about 20 kilometers more before arriving home. This reporter learned that there indeed is such a person from the town of Tantou in RongAn county, whose family lives in Longcun village in Longcheng. From Xinhua (Photos: Li Hanchi)

腾讯网友 绿色心情 :

Aspiration Brother! Your spirit moves me!

腾讯网友 薄荷の浪子 :

Just look at how many ordinary common people have been hurt by China’s housing prices, so sad!

腾讯网友 曦 の晨 4分钟前 :

Brother, your house is worth more than Jackie Chan’s. I propose a kind-hearted real estate developer dedicate [give] a house to this brother!

腾讯郑州市网友 伊马当先 :

Every person has their own way [of living]. Maybe the way he has chosen is too primitive or simple. [But] I think he is also using his own actions to maintain his own dignity, which when compared to those more admirable than those people who look nice and clean on the surface but can only rely on the help of others or even by cheating others!

腾讯网友 I have no choice :

Why not buy a bus/train ticket home, and instead use kind of this method?

腾讯嘉兴市网友 天翼 :

However, this indeed is sad. It’s unbelievable that such a strong brother couldn’t earn enough for fare [home]. Maybe he has his own reasons or faith/belief…but either way, it’s still considered a strange act.

腾讯网友杭州市 小甜甜布兰妮 :

Just put four wheels under the house and you won’t have to be so tired anymore.

腾讯重庆市网友 ★珊☆ :

Only by being strong in one’s heart can one truly be strong. He’s very strong. He doesn’t accept help from others, relying on his own strength to complete his own dream. Although this dream is different from what we think a dream should be, he still accomplished his. This spirit is worth us learning from.

腾讯网友 远航扬帆 :

One’s homeland is always difficult to leave, as home is always the place one yearns for. No matter what kind of person you are, home will always be one’s harbor!

腾讯新疆网友:冷 暖自知 :

Given that he wants to go back home, don’t tell me he worked for twenty years and wasn’t even able to save money for a train/bus ticket home? I don’t believe it. A long-distance bus ticket should not be more than three hundred kuai, right? I have been to Guangxi, From Huizhou, it’s just 120 [RMB]. I truly can’t understand why he chose to walk home.

腾讯网友 宗霖 :

Is China rich? There are still many people like him.

腾讯网友 千山我行 :

Should have him go be a long-distance runner. Who knows, he might bring back a gold medal.

腾讯杭州市网友 善意的谎言 :

Editor/author, why don’t you ask him if he is happy?

腾讯嘉兴市网友 821059169 :

Sigh, I feel that this world is so unfair. Those who are rich, are too rich. Those who are poor, are too poor.

腾讯嘉兴市网友 1220730776 :

Worked for 20 years. Finally managed to buy a house and can return home. Such is life.

腾讯网友 0 :

No matter how power, one should have dignity. At the very least, this real experience is something that will be worth remembering for the rest of his life.

腾讯网友:740321822:

Actually, this is not only a problem of high housing prices, but also of the problem of unequal distribution of wealth and disparity in education between different areas. People who have knowledge [are educated] wouldn’t do this kind of thing, or maybe because his education level was insufficient to help him earn happiness [enough for a decent life] even after 20 years. There are many examples like this. China, jia you!

    The best mobile home I’ve ever seen.

  • Rick in China

    Dubbed: Snail Brother? Surprised they didn’t give him this kinda name.

    • echo1o1

      Have you aborted your mutt kid yet?
      Why sentence it to a lifetime of teasing, racism and self hatred?

  • Alex

    He could have just walked by himself and make a new when on his destination..

  • BiggJ

    He went to look for work….by the looks of it he never found it. I mean crack heads live better then that.

    If that was me I would have bought/stole a tent and a shopping cart…..or a fucking bus ticket. It’s not like he can’t rebuild his house when he gets home…10 or 15 minutes you would wipe that together. That would be a lot easier then what he did. He could very well be doing it for the adventure or whatever…..unless he is hooked on the milk of the poppy….when I see people like that I think they must have mental illness or some kind of addiction.

    Then again some people like that kind of life…like hermits and nomads, To each his own I guess. And that guy must fucking stink!

    • I don’t know, it kind of seems fun. Carrying it around wouldn’t be fun, but the part about camping every night, campfire food all the time. Of course, I guess it wouldn’t be so fun if you HAD to do it.

      • linette lee

        hahaha…I knew you would like that camping around thing. What about bugs?

        • Tasty treats

          • linette lee

            yuk….hahah.. fried flies. lol.

          • Barney Rubble

            flied lice?

          • I haven’t tried them (yet), but I’ve read countless articles about how cicadas taste just like shrimp.

        • Jin Ch’in

          Im sure you have experienced fleas before

        • Rick in China

          What do you think he’s cooking up in the wok?

          • linette lee

            grass with fried flies.

            This chinese guy he is hardcore. He can survive in any condition. He is creative and die hard hardcore. If he goes on the survivor TV reality show he will win the money.

          • Rick in China

            Well – Survivor is a social game more than anything. It’s rarely the ‘hardcore survivalists’ that get to the end.

            That being said, digging up food out of trash and collecting discarded recyclable materials doesn’t really make one more than, well, a bum – there’s a significantly different set of skills required to truly survive in, say, a wilderness or deserted island type environment.

    • echo1o1

      Why do you make a negative comment on each and every goddamn story?
      Nobody gives a flying fuck about your shitty retarded opinions.

      Shut the fuck up already.

      • Jin Ch’in

        This is how he attract Chinese woman like Linette lee..its like a mating dance for less attractive white males

        • mr.wiener

          And the girls must love your “Foreigners are scum, gas all peasants” shtick.
          Getting old though. keep going with the “foreign losers attract bottom feeding Chinese whores” thingy. You’ll get much more attention that way.
          610

          • echo1o1

            And is it wrong? White losers like you go to China because you are failures in your home country.

          • Good thing he went to Taiwan, then. That’s where all the awesome people are.

            I just don’t see why you hate China so much to actually consider it a repository for anything pathetic. I didn’t think it was that bad…

          • mr.wiener

            Well you have been criticizing other people without volunteering a lot of info about yourself. Which could mean that you haven’t introduced yourself properly yet not that you are a troll or a coward.
            Care to step up and tell us about the man behind the echo?

          • Les Battersby

            more nonsensical rubbish. Listen pal, in my country you can work part time and the government will still help you out with your rent, and you are entitled to free healthcare and a pension and so on, even if you are unemployed and claiming jobseekers allowance. If you think losers go to china because they are failures, you have rocks in your head. They stay at home and collect their dues, fool.

          • Allan H

            Dont be jealous of my beautiful white skin. But, I’ll tell you what you can do. Carry an umbrella with you at all times. Use it even on cloudy days and after doing that every day for a month…. whoops. Sorry you’ll still be yellow.

          • Jin Ch’in

            I do not think all foreigners scum at all..i know lots of amazing artist and CEO from all over Europe and America we spend many nights having dinner on the Bund.
            What i do not like and allergies too are White rmb middle class who come to a 3rd world country suck it dry then go online and spit and stomp on their heads..talk about biting the hands that feed you.

            If you hate Chinese and china so much..be a hero and leave go and earn your sad wage in a country you have respect for.

          • Les Battersby

            White rmb middle class who come to a 3rd world country suck it dry then
            go online and spit and stomp on their heads..talk about biting the
            hands that feed you.

            Troll. What I do not like are Chinese euro middle class who come to a 1st world country, suck it dry by opening up shops selling cheap crap, then go online and grumble about european food and europe in general, talk about biting the hand that feeds them and lets them send small fortunes home.

          • mr.wiener

            Ahhh….Enlightenment dawns! Suck up to artists and CEOs, spit on Foreign teachers and Chinese peasants.
            Thank you for the clarification :)
            Hate China? Naah, like Taiwan better though. Really like hanging with the relatives in the county. We get to go shooting pigs with homemade muskets and drink lots of moonshine.

          • echo2o2

            Yes, it is better when white scum like yourself go to the american colony of taiwan where everybody is a brainwashed western loving dog.

            The day China bombs Taiwan back to submission can’t come soon enough. Hopefully a few million of those taiwanese dogs will be killed off.

          • mr.wiener

            Awfully opinionated about the whole China/Taiwan thing for a Korean aren’t you?

          • James

            didn’t spend much time in the countryside there but did get in some hiking around hualien

          • Allan H

            Dude… You’re a phoney. The two posts I’ve read of yours only allude to how rich you are and who you know. If you have spent time with CEOs and ‘amazing artists’ from ‘all over’ Europe and America… You
            wouldn’t need to remind people every three minutes. If I was a doctor
            (which Im not) I think your diagnosis would be….. Penis Envy
            Treatment: Punch yourself in the dick 3 times and stop watching western porn it will only feed your inadequacies.

          • Jin Ch’in

            i posted one comment about knowing artist and ceo? and i don’t think i ever said i was rich and how much money i have?

            I didn’t think you need to be rich to dine on the Bund? haha

          • Allan H

            Come on little Jin. Are you going to try and tell me you haven’t been saying how rich you are and that all the foreigners in China are White trash? If you believe this. I apologise. You are more delusional than I originally thought.

          • Jin Ch’in

            Why don’t you find a post where i wrote ” i am rich” and get back to me. If by saying i have nice things and live in a nice area of shanghai then yes i guess i am lol. And i only mentioned where i live to prove a point that i have NEVER seen these things that every white person talking about. So either they living amongst the poorest Chinese or just making up stories.

          • Allan H

            Little Jin… C’mon man. Your english is not that bad. You dont have to say “Im a douche” but by your posts one can only assume that is what you want others to think about you. You’re obviously a foreigner taking the piss.
            If not, and you are really Chinese (which I hope your not). I feel bad for you man. Either way. Enjoy. Have fun.

          • Jin Ch’in

            Ok why do you feel bad for me? and why do you think i am a douche? because you think I’m racist? maybe i am but i am entitle to not like a race or group of people..there’s no world law that said you must like anyone

          • Shanglow

            But jin there is a moral limit to what you can say – how can you say that you want to gas the very poor, of your own country. Hating people of your own country shouldn’t there be alaw against that ?

          • mr.wiener

            He is a troll, he never confronts white racist he only says stuff to be controversial and outrage liberal types. He gets off on this.
            Wheeeee! people are listening to meeee!!!

          • Shanglow

            Yes I noticed that myself, he never said anything to ChinaSpit & rather admires many of the posts of that trailer trash, so he is self hating and must be ashamed somewhere inside to be chinese. Also he has so much hubris he thinks he is right in everything.

          • Jin Ch’in

            Shanglow there is no right or wrong ..this is a forum for people to express THEIR opinion on current news and whether I or you or anyone else like or agree does not mean its right or wrong.

          • Shanglow

            But jin you don’t understand how scary your views are, you sound like hitler planning the holocaust- sometimes there is an absolute right and absolute wrong, and jin if, in a free forum, there are no right or wrong opinions, how can there be the right humans who deserve to live and the wrong humans, who dont deserve to live, in a free world ?

          • Jin Ch’in

            I dont mind white racist..if they want to be a white racist its their choice unlike you i do not try to impose my views and standards onto everyone who make a comment on China smack. Its none of my business the choices people make in what they like don’t like or how they wish to act.

            I think you need to get off your high horse and let people have their right to their opinion without you trying to bully them.

          • SuperHappyCow

            IM NOT SURE WHAT THIS CONVERSATION IS ABOUT BUT I AM PRETTY CERTAIN AS IT IS DUMB AND I AM ONLY SKIMMING IT BUT I AM SURE THE RIGHT TO YOUR OWN OPINION MEANS THE RIGHT OF OTHER PEOPLE TO CALL IT REALLY DUMB.

            caps sorry ;)

          • Jin Ch’in

            You wrong i would like the very unemployable poor of any country be turned into fertilizer this would be more useful to society and our planet.

            You might think its wrong but i believe in population control and not make excuses for people. Lots of extremely poor people have gone onto great fortunes and success you do not need to be born rich. No one gets anything for nothing its time governments stop using tax payers as a ATM for bone lazy people.

          • Allan H

            Whenever this guy talks… Just say…….. Ok Dumb Dumb. you are right dumb dumb. Stop offending nice people dumb dumb.

            It’s cool dumb dumb, you are important and we care what you think. You are clever and smart and no one will tell you different. Thank you for teaching us how good you are. I have a higher opinion of chinese because of you.

            “Please let this guy talk,” but constantly remind him or that they are a a douche.

            Man….. My chinese friends would beat the shit out of you. Why? Because my friends and I half think this is a ploy to get more posts on a ridiculous website. My friends wouldn’t shit on you or your website.

            Stop trying to make chinese and foreigners look stupid for your website. You can….. but…… I hope you loose. Dont ruin my country you piece of shit.

          • Les Battersby

            Lots of extremely poor people have gone onto great fortunes and success you do not need to be born rich.

            You are wrong, thatcherite yuppie boy, tell that to people whose fathers and grandfathers lost their jobs working in the steel or coal industries, and entire estates and a generation was left without hope and jobless and addicted to heroin. Certain things should remain nationalized, railways most definitely.

          • Jin Ch’in

            Roman Abramovich was an orphan, Coco Chanel was an orphan Oprah Winfrey was extremely poor and was abused.

            People loses jobs all the time thats due to industries changes with the time..so if you cant adapt then thats your own fault.
            Druggies..haha if thats what u wanna do then u can die u get whats coming.

            Governments are not social workers or managers to run companies.

            nothing knew, why get supa-mad?

        • echo1o1

          BiggJ is the perfect example of the inferior white garbage who is unable to find any white wife of his own economic standing. So he must come to a poorer country like China to take advantage of peasant girls.
          Look at his profile picture, it is “Kraft dinner” which is a microwaveable food for the low working class of america.
          These working class poor whites like BiggJ come to China and then think they are superior because they have white skin.
          China should rid itself of parasitical scum like BiggJ.

I feel sorry for the youth who come across all this racist BS and wonder what the fuck is wrong with you grown men and women wasting your time on this. A bunch of imbeciles logging on crying at each other all day.and night like a bunch of thirsty attention seeking whores you all are… seriously? You all make the East and the West look bad… Why don’t you all just skullfuck each other to death and stay away from pussy because if you are all lucky enough to breed, your offsprings will be no better than dirt. You are all a bunch of haters, feminine men and the real world betas, drama queens and omegas that inhabit my world.. get the fuck off my planet bitches.

            Yang Rui is a pretentious, smug wanker who I just want to beat up every time I hear his fake sounding intonation. Also his schizophrenic tone changes from obsequious to haughty and back again leave me unable to pin down why I hate him for more than three minutes.

            The least of that dude’s problems is xenophobia.

          • Les Battersby

            did you see the vid where he had the temerity to suggest to Obama he got to represent all of asia?!

          • donscarletti

            That’s Rui Chenggang, who’s a bit less rude, but just as full of himself. But yeah, the worldview is that he should he should damn well be able to represent all of Asia, since he comes from Asia’s most powerful nation and what the hell could a Korean, a Chinese vassal country since time immemorial have to say to a leader of such a powerful nation?

          • Les Battersby

            Sorry, my mistake. I can perhaps forgive yang his drunken outburst, everyone loses their shyte sometimes, but this pompous buffoon claiming he gets to represent asia, what is he going to come up with next time, that he represents all the asians in the world?!

          • BiggJ

            I’ll take being inferior white garbage of the lowest standing any day over being a fucking chink. And why would I want to live in the cesspool known as china? You could not pay me enough to live there. I’m sorry you’re stuck in that shit hole. And the only reason I come here is because i’m somewhat forced to for a month at a time. The only reason I actually go along with it is because people treat me like a king for no other reason other then I’m white. And truth be told I don’t even like it, but it makes my time hear a more bearable. It’s sad really that chinese kiss the ass of the white man for no fucking reason….it’s pathetic really. Just like you, you are just some little chink who is pissed off at white people because you can’t command that respect no matter how much money you make from chinese or white people or anyone for that matter. Chinese males are like the omega males on the planet. And you are one step below that..

          • Germandude

            Dude, your posts are really funny most of the time. Garbage like this one however are not and I am surprised that you let yourself being pushed into crap-talk like that.

            Since you don’t live in China, how about ignoring trolls like the one you replied to and that Jin Ch’in spastic?

            echo1o1’s posts are so low on quality, just letting them stand there uncommented will be enough to display his retardeness. I am surprised you let yourself getting pushed into the same corner.

          • BiggJ

            You’re right, I usually don’t respond to shit like that….he can call me a white cracker pig fucking piece of shit for all I care. That does not bother me one bit. But when you bring Kraft dinner into the mix….it’s personal.lol

            And I know I’ll get another hate filled response from the fucker but i’ll leave it at that. The only way to fight racism is with more racism. lol

          • echo2o2

            How cute, a peasant who is attached to his peasant food.

          • dw

            or with just stop talking altogether
            why do you comment really?
            “trolls” like you call them (us) just want to shut you up
            what do you want ? what are you comments saying really ?
            get skype and talk to your friends there, stop polluting the internet with your opinions

          • SuperHappyCow

            His posts are almost exclusively awful, like mine.

            But at least I’m not a racist that pretends not to be.

          • Germandude

            You might be right and I might be wrong, but I think that he is using tons of irony and likes “dancing on the blade”.

          • SuperHappyCow

            If he is, he needs to be beaten with a fucking hammer, just like most ironic fuckers.

          • Yes. Like fighting fire with fire, the only way to fight irony is with iron.

          • SuperHappyCow

            but you’re good at it shut up man

          • I don’t get it. Are you hammering your point home?

          • KaiXuan

            I agree. I was pretty disappointed to see you sink down to the bottom like that.

          • echo2o2

            Nobody is treating you like a king, except in your mind, you deluded supremacist dimwit.

            For someone who hates china so much you sure do make an effort to comment on every single last article on the country. Not to mention you even married some dog ugly chinese whore for a wife.

            I don’t think you realize how mentally unstable you sound, you have a grasp of the english language similar to an 8th grader, typical I guess, of low IQ white working class trash.

            Do you truly think picking up a third world wife is an achievement? I hope you don’t have kids, because you know, they will be chinks. But I guess a sad ugly simpleton of a ‘man’ like yourself has no other recourse for reproduction but an ugly third world whore.

            Frankly someone should just put a bullet in the back of your head and do the human species a favor.

          • Germandude

            Frankly, the only sound to be heard if somebody shot you in the head would be the echo travelling from ear to ear.

          • mr.wiener

            I think he got banned again hence the change of name.

          • Germandude

            His new name appears to be “This comment was deleted”.
            Getting repetitive if you ask me.

          • mr.wiener

            oh that’s a relief, I misread your comment, for a moment there i thought you said “his mother was felated”

          • echo2o2

            You germans were awfully good at putting bullets in the heads of innocent people. And then the world put you sad untermenschen in your place. Germans are pathetic, two world wars and your men were exterminated twice and still pretending to matter on the world stage. Every german in brandenberg is a mixed mutt with the slavic genes of the russian conquerors. Frankly the USA should have just let the slavs exterminate your vile subhuman race.

            Fucking pathetic dog.

          • Jin Ch’in

            They all suffer from Faux pride..the only good German is a dead German.

          • mr.wiener

            But what if the German is a “Fantastic artist or a CEO”? How will you suck up to them when they are dead?
            Seriously, it’s really pretentious to use “Faux” in a sentence, a real “fox-par” :)
            Nice to see you and Echo have made friends, but I wouldn’t be planning the engagement party yet. How do Koreans rate on the Shanghai snobometer?

          • Germandude

            I don’t know what else to say than “Jin Ch’in truely hurted the feelings of the German people. Human flesh search him!”

          • mr.wiener

            Put him in a small room where large blonde men in tight leather shorts can beat him with foam rubber truncheons. …….no hang on, he might enjoy that to much. Between blows he will be panting:
            “Tell me…about your … first exhibition then!?”

          • qweg

            Maybe you try it, and come back to tell your story. Or do it and don’t come back. Or don’t do it and don’t come back.

          • Jin Ch’in

            what a waste of a bullet..the metal can be put to better use like a BMW

          • Jin Ch’in

            The only Chinese who treat you like a king are the lowly peasants. Seriously my hair stands on end when i come across a poor white person in front of my apartment building..never know if they gonna beg for money or rob me at knife point.

          • Les Battersby

            more bloody rubbish from the condescending abc one man mental. Put on your stuffed 10,000 rmb shirt and stop trying to look down those Shanghai folk. Chinese girls should only be for western white men anyway, even if they are poor. And get stuffed body!!!!

          • echo2o2

            “Chinese girls should only be for western white men anyway”

            If you want low class peasant girls with no money, you can take them. We’ll take your high quality white women in exchange.

            You know, like Al Gore’s daughter who married a Chinese man.

          • Jin Ch’in

            Let me paint a picture of these guys future

            asian wife leave after 4-5 years with what little money and assets they have.

            asian wife get her visa/green card passport thanks to the stupid white guy

            stupid white guy get stuck with child support

            asian ex wife remarry usually with their own race and live happily in the white guy house

            old white guy get even fatter and more grotesque and desperate so off to Bangkok meets a stripper doing a pin pong show and fall in-love again…circle starts all over. haha

          • Allan H

            I guess, this is a problem you’ll never have to worry about. Which country’s girls are gonna line up to blow you when you’re 60, so she can get a Chinese passport?

          • KaiXuan

            Surprisingly that was kinda funny! LOL

          • echo2o2

            Yes, white people commit too many crimes. And then the police are too kind to these white foreigners.
            The police must start shooting white people who commit crimes on sight. Innocent people must be protected from white criminals.

          • You and Jin are being too obvious. You need to kind of tone it down a little if you want us to actually believe you guys.

          • Jin Ch’in

            This is for your gang bang group

          • You’re wanting us to gang bang you? Keep dreaming.

          • Jin Ch’in

            Guys like you , Rick and that cat guy married asian wife is because either they have low self-esteem and stuck in poverty and prefer to court a
            woman you perceive more needy or vulnerable to avoid rejection.

          • donscarletti

            I don’t know anything about being needy or vulnerable, but I know Asian women are less likely to pork up in their late 20s and 30s.

            I’ve never had a firm preference either for or against Asian women, but you have to admit, they do have at least a few plus-sides.

          • Probotector

            “Asian women are less likely to pork up in their late 20s and 30s.”

            I actually find it quite refreshing to see an Asian fatso; more often than not, they’re too skinny that you wanna see something different.

            This needs to happen to you, immediately.

            Get shanked by cylons, idiot.

          • Probotector

            I’d like to know what business you actually have commenting on this site. Looking through your posts, they’re usually only ever about one or two sentences, and all you ever do is troll or make shitty jokes, moan about how hard-done-by it is to be black or say “I’m a cow!” (btw cows are usually considered the female of the species and you are a dude, you dumb fuck).

            Anyway, the comments forum on CS is generally for people who have some knowledge and understanding of Chinese society and life here; either they’re foreign expats who currently or used to live here, or at least in the region of the Far East (like Kate) or they’re Chinese people themselves. You told me you live in Wilshire, a district of LA, and you never ever express any knowledge or understanding of Chinese society, culture or language, obviously because you don’t know anything about it and have never lived here in China. Therefore, why should anyone care about what you have to say, especially if all your comments can be summed up as: “kill yourself”, “shut the fuck up” or “you’re a twat”. How about posting something intelligible, useful and interesting instead? Or how about actually coming to China and gaining some real life experience and then developing a valid opinion. Until that time comes, stop wasting everyone else’s time with your bullshit.

          • James

            isn’t this the one who was saying a boston bomb victim’s legs were fake & taken off after the bombing as part of a plot? ya i take his opinion seriously

            He’s the one.

            My name is Probotector, here are some of the things I have said:

            “did your dad cheat on your mom with some KTV skank, and that’s how you were born? Go fuck yourself chinkie”

            “And I knew you were some bigoted dickless Chinese fag. Deal with it”

            to name a few.

            my name is probotootrn and i am nort a raciost

          • Probotector

            I guess that time has not come yet…

          • SuperHappyCow

            :D I didn’t say they were fake, I said it’s no surprise that people thought they were, since the dude in the picture that just lost his legs looked exactly like the dude in the military photo that lost his legs already years ago. Ofcourse “He’s the one.” who made the crime of pointing out something breathtakingly obvious, that people would come to a conspiratorial conclusion when conspiracies actually happen in the real world. Gasp. What a crime.

          • SuperHappyCow

            My businness commenting on the site is A: none of yours B: regulating.

            I never bring up being black unless someone else does, or it’s relevant to the conversation, which is almost never. Race isn’t an interesting topic to me, but tools like you always see it as a fascinating subject to go on and on about. The fact that I point out when people mention blacks for no reason, or to insult the entire group, effectively making an index of this website’s bullshit is not my fault. It’s the fault of people like you for being fucking twats. Personally, I’m not interested in race at all.

            Cows, on the other hand, are a most fascinating group that form a sort of depravity that I am quite fond to be a part of. I mean, their poop is the source of infinite food, and mass extinction? Which creature wields more power in the known universe than the mighty cow?

            Anyhow, here are some classic Propopooter quotes:

            “And I knew you were some bigoted dickless Chinese fag. Deal with it”

            “did your dad cheat on your mom with some KTV skank, and that’s how you were born? Go fuck yourself chinkie”

            “If America was not in Taiwan, then China would reconquer you. Perhaps there is a stigma to being an American puppet, but many of us are. However, it’s a necessary, if unfortunate, situation. America did more than anyone to protect Europe and Asia from the spread of Communism. To decry their efforts is truly ignorant. Also the Japs raped and murdered Chinese women back then, Americans didn’t. Germans and Japanese put people into gas chambers back then; Americans didn’t. So how do you justify saying that the Allies killed more than the Axis?”

            That, among numerous posts is why I don’t like you. You introduced yourself to me by falsely quoting anything I’d said from months past of history, claiming that I like ebonics, and talking about “banging white girls.” Fucking lies that you just say and repeat as if they have any factual basis. To you, everyone is a stereotype until he/she proves otherwise. Asians are chinks and blacks all speak ebonics, regardless of a zero evidence.

          • Probotector

            So basically, you’re on here because I really upset you a while back, and now you’re just trolling. Is that why yesterday you down-voted every comment I made on this story? Yes, I know it was you; no one else would be so pathetic.

            You do moan about being black:

            “Because the idea of something being black is constantly looked down upon and attacked by people all over…”

            “When a black person does anything its always mentioned that the person is black”

            These were made without anyone else raising the issue of race.

            As for my quotes, I’m not the only one who said chinkie on this site, and I already admitted it was uncalled for.”bigotted dickless Chinese fag” is not that racist is it? Is that worse than calling you an angry black man?

            btw many people on this site are more racist than I supposedly am, for example posters like “chinkiecide” “chinaisshit” etc. Then there’s the Chinese racists to consider. You love to point out how racist me, BiggJ and others are, but I don’t think anyone really cares, as racism and hate on an internet forum are omnipresent, and no one knows each other.

            What’s wrong with my America in WWII quote?

            You have typed ebonics and mentioned girls you’ve banged in the past on this site, so they’re not lies.

            Stereotyping? To you, it seems everyone is a racist until proven otherwise.

            In spite of all that, you haven’t got anything interesting or useful to say, especially about China. Tell me what’s your interest in China? What do you know about life here? Or are you just here to troll the rest of us and bitch about how America is evil, racist and fascist? Hardly worthy of our time is it?

          • SuperHappyCow

            “You do moan about being black: These were made without anyone else raising the issue of race.”

            Someone asked a question specifically about race, and I offered a response, which is the fucking exact point of a message board. You, on the other hand, have only been trying to take my posts out of context since the first post you’ve made in reply to me, and you constantly make entirely race based assumptions, like the idea that I speak ebonics or live in a “ghetto” or talk about “fucking white girls” when I was just talking about dating them in Pasadena.

            http://www.chinasmack.com/?p=39379#comment-787090124

            And that’s the first train of shit you’ve ever posted in reply to me. Lies, upon lies, upon lies.

            “You have typed ebonics and mentioned girls you’ve banged in the past on this site, so they’re not lies.”

            No, I didn’t, and I was talking about a relationship I had with a girl on a story that was specifically about relationships, you dumb fucking liar.

            “Stereotyping? To you, it seems everyone is a racist until proven otherwise.” No, it’s just you and a few other people, trolls aside, making this site a shitfest to read with your comments like “get fucked chinkie,” among numerous others. You’re a liar, and a tool. That’s why I downvote your posts.

            I’m on here to read interesting stories about China, not your 3rd grade compositions.

          • SuperHappyCow

            Tbh, I never actually said you were racist until now. We were having a discussion about how you have no idea what fascism actually is, when you started bringing up racial stereotypes because you’re a fucking twat. When I kept pointing it out, you deleted all of your posts.

            Over the next week or so, you kept calling asians “chinks” and making incredibly stupid comments, and I replied to the smattering that “it’s okay, folks, Probotector isn’t a racist…

            No he’s just a weird lonely douche bag who always comments on this site, but knows nothing at all about China, so his comments are all troll

          • SuperHappyCow

            Black women are so masculine that L.A.P.D. used to send police into homes to rape women, and get away with it. Same thing happened to Japanese, and foreighners do the same thing happens to Chinese women in China right now. Asian women experience an absurdly high level of domestic abuse from white men, but guess who doesn’t give a fuck? Jin Ch’in. : D

            Weird that you’re so invested in perpetuating white lies about how you can’t tell the sexes apart that you’re completely uninterested in things going on your own country. You know, whites would say the same thing about asians, except that your men are such feminine bottoms that the’ll fuck your wife without your back turned. Is it true?

            You’re so far up Probotector’s ass that I wonder if you actually are him.

            Take care, chump.

          • Probotector

            First the fascism thing, you were just wrong. Second, you called me racist many times. Third, how am I bringing up racial stereotypes wit the above comment? By calling you black? Well, you are black aren’t you? Or is that now racist too? Judging by your comments you seem pretty angry, always swearing and such. Fourth, I never deleted my posts. The chink comment I’ll give you and there’s no excuse for it, so I’m sorry.

            Have you ever experienced any real racism in your life?

            You should drop by my company in Zhongguancun some day. About 1 in 5 men are visibly overweight and 1 in 30 are obese. Every single male over 27 has a visible belly.

            Hilarious. I love how you think everyone who posts on here is 1) poor, 2) works as a teacher or doesn’t work, 3) failure back home in both career and with women.

            The amusing thing is, my circle of friends (and myself) fit none of your “assumed criteria”. Just as I’m guessing you may not fit my presumption that you’re an angry self-hating projectionist who thinks far too highly of himself and as a result fails to find *either* a woman or career that accepts him, perpetuating the anger and self-hate…perpetuating the intensity of your projection via internet forums. Then again, maybe that presumption is accurate. Who knows, who cares.

            Next time you’re in NYC, why don’t you spout some of the shit you post online in real life? Good luck with that one.

          • Les Battersby

            How old are you then my dear young fellow me lad, nothing to be afraid of by dear boy or dear lad, used it all me 36 years like, and won’t change my spots for you,it is a term of endearment if anything, and means I actually quite admire you, dear boy. Now then, where are you again, Shanghai? WOT SAYETH THEE!!!

          • linette lee

            Jin Ch’in. you are such a jerk.

          • linette lee

            and this!

          • linette lee
      • BiggJ

        Yeah but that tent you posted is a serious tent. You can buy a 1 or 2 man tent for dirt cheap for like maybe 100 rmb. And it can fit in a pool cue case. I think he does it his way because he can carry all his shit stuffed in the walls like pots and pans and so on…There has to be an easier way. How does he walk with that thing on a windy day? lol

        • Rick in China

          He said he had to rebuild it a few times.. maybe it’s weighed down heavy enough that the wind doesn’t affect it, but I can imagine if he has this strapped in both ways – it would be like a f’in hot air balloon if a good gust got under him on a light beer bottle day….damn.

          Either way, this dude’s legs must be like rocks.

      • James

        that’s a pack, not a tent. if I was living off it I’d probably want a kifaru although my mystery ranch nice 6500 is pretty functional & strong.

        all you really need for a shelter in a warm region during good weather is plastic & string, if you even need anything. string up a hammock or just use a bivy, bag or blanket. if you want a more regular tent theres lots right now I use a catoma bednet/shelter it’s small sets up fast & is light.

    Why did he do that? I mean, what kind of reason did he have to make such a long journey like that?

    • Jeff

      He’s lost and refuses to ask directions. Come on all men are the same. Maybe he should have bought an Onstar unit…

      • Calles

      Or a sleeping bag for that matter.

        It does seem a bit inconvenient. You would think it would be easier just to carry some plastic and rig up something at night. I guess he has his reasons.

        • MrT

          hes posh, there’s a guy around here walks for miles, i see him all over the place.
          Hes got fuck all, not even cloths.

  • LuoyangLaowai

    I call BULLSHIT!!

    5 years!!!! To walk one province over! BULL SHIT!!! And the guy has built 3 Houses along the way.

    The guy could have got a bus ticket home and build a mobile home after he got home. Something is fishy with this story.

    maybe a few months is more like it. A year at most. if HE REALLY wanted to take his time getting home. This story is BS!

    • Irvin

      The dude probably took a wrong turn or something, no gps for him after all.

      • LuoyangLaowai

        haha. Then I wonder Where he ended up before he realized he made a wrong turn? somewhere around Beijing?. lol.

    • Chris McKenna

      His home might just be a destination. Maybe he’s in it for the journey. He went down to SZ and after a while though bugger this, I’m going a walk. Maybe went he gets home he’ll walk back to SZ again.

    • Germandude

      Man, Forrest Gump was jogging for over a year from US westcoast to the eastcoast and back without brake. Try that if you think walking is boring.

      But I agree. Something is fishy in this story. If he did it “to find out about himself”, okay, I would understand. But without any info given…

      • LuoyangLaowai

        Good Point. Not much info Given. i shouldnt have been so critical. Maybe he is trying to find himself. Or he’s got a wife and kid back home, and Just like I would be. In no hurry to get back to them.

      • Maybe he was just a cheapskate and didn’t want to spend the money on a bus ticket. Or maybe he wanted to get into a newspaper somewhere?

      • Probotector

        Forest Gump is fictional.

        • Germandude

          Who would’ve thought…

          • Probotector

            Yeah so why mention it, dickhead? Since it never actually happened, comparing it to a real life event is ridiculous. btw ‘break’ is brechen; ‘brake’ is bremse.

          • Germandude

            Thanks for correcting my English. I saw the mistake but didn’t edit it because I knew someone will pick that up and get a boner playing the grammar-Nazi. Let’s call it a successfull day for you, okay?

          • Probotector

            Uh, if you say so; it looked like a genuine error to me. In any case, it was a spelling mistake, not a grammar mistake. Sorry, was that too fascistic for you? Anyway, at least you accept that comparing real life to fiction makes you look stupid.

          • Germandude

            When you are typing fast, mistyping so to say, it’s called a splleing msitake.

            Still wondering why you react so sensitive towards my Forrest Gump post. It’s a great movie. You should watch it.

            But it’s a surprise!

          • Probotector

            Forest Gump is a little too cheesy for me. I mean how can one man really have influenced or witnessed so many events that shaped 20th century America?

          • mr.wiener

            I think it might have been satire in the same vein as Voltaire’s “Candide”
            Shit! I just sounded all arty and pretentious there. I hope Jin doesn’t start humping my leg

          • mr.wiener

            Stupid is as stupid……um I forgot the rest.

          • SuperHappyCow

            wait so nazis are fascists now?

            i thought you said they were socialists

          • Probotector

            What is Nazi short for?

          • SuperHappyCow

            It’s short for “Probotector is a fucking tool and doesn’t understand that the National Socialists were actually fascists, that’s why they called themselves socialists, to trick people into joining them and mobilizing against other people, while those in power can steal everyone’s wealth. Did I mention that probotector is a fucking moron?”

            It’s the most convoluted goddamn acronym I’ve ever seen.

          • Probotector

            National Socialism was socialism of a sort in that it took the facets of German society at the time, the social class hierarchy and the institutions of government, and used them to serve the nation state. It it different to what we commonly refer to as socialism, in the Marxist sense. I said this the last time I commented about this months ago.

          • They’ve always been fascists. Don’t let the self-given title confuse it. Kind of like how the North Korean’s claim they’re the “Democratic” of the two Republics of Koreas.

          • SuperHappyCow

            Oh, I know. It’s probotector that’s in need of a 5th grade education. We’ve had this conversation before, and he’s said the same thing. “They’re socialists because they call themselves ‘National Socialists.”

            Can we euthanize him now?

          • mr.wiener

            Cool your jets sir. You went from zero to agro in no time flat there. What’s your problem?

          • Probotector

            I figured if he was going to post a sarcastic reply, I’d respond in kind.

          • mr.wiener

            hmm….. Call me prissy and old fashioned but the distance between “who’da thought” and “dickhead” would be about the same lightyear as between Jin’s ego and his IQ.

          • SuperHappyCow

            his problem is that he s a fucking twat i told you already like 3 months ago

    More rubbish blocking the roads no wonder luxury cars are hitting and getting damaged on china roads. when will the government clean this shit up and remove these people from using public roads.

    • Yeah, I’m certain this Jin fellow isn’t real.
      His attempts to look like a jackass are way too obvious these days.

      • Germandude

        I am disappointed. Turns out he is just another trolling retard. Ignoring is the only option from now on.

        • mr.wiener

          Nope, grading him. I’d give his current “all peasants must die” thing about a 510 as it is getting old and has lost its ability to shock.

          • Germandude

            That’s a mediocre idea. I would give grading comments a 5/10 but since it’s coming from an Aussie, he’s getting the bonus. 6/10.

    This has nothing to do with this thread. but I was just watching Youtube and I came across this.

    Is this how China people drive? The trucks, motorbikes and cars. Wow.. I have never seen anything like this. I am completely dumbfounded I don’t know what to say. O.o

    • MrT

      I was thinking of contacting a game company and selling them the idea.
      “Drive China”
      I got a stack of awesome ideas for it.
      It would a big hit I know. blows Tomb Raider!

      • linette lee

        Are there any traffic lights in China roads.? On the camera don’t look like they have many traffic lights. In a big intersection like that there should be many traffic lights for so many lanes. They drive like there is no traffic lights on the roads and the bikes and motorbikes are going in every different directions. How can trucks not hit them? And the night time it’s so dark. NO way you can see the bikes. Where is the street lights for car roads?

        It’s also a defect on the design of the roads that they are not adequately illuminated at night and not enough traffic lights for so many lanes.

        HK gov’t mentioned a plan to let X number of cars driven by mainlanders driving into HK. Suggesting letting them drive their cars around HK? Like wow. How can HK do that? Look at how they drive. The next you know HK gov’t will allow motorbikes and bikes from mainland coming into HK. I can’t imagine what a tremendous disaster it’s going to be.

        • Les Battersby

          There are traffic lights, problem is, most generally ignore them:D

        • James

          of course there are traffic lights, but they’re just optional

        • iLL

          Linette Lee is a troll on these forms. Totally trolling. At first i thought maybe she/he was just defending HK, but EVERY FUCKING CONVERSATION she has is about comparing how “great” HK is over China. Lets play this game. Where would HK be if Mainland China cuts off ties with HK. Lets see first the economy would crash. All business in HK that does business with mainland would be crushed. Probably affecting a million jobs? Second all the hotels and service industry would die without all the tourist from the mainland. Where would HK get there veggies and meats now? They would have to start importing all there meats from other countries causing a major inflation on the local economy. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

      • linette lee

        “Drive China” will be a hardcore game. It will make those other violent games look like kindergarten.

      Just out of curiosity do you use the local version of youtube, ie:

      Wow, i am completely dumbfounded by the way you always talk down about mainland China. Why are you always on here trashing mainland chinese people? Do you have an inferiority complex?

      Goto Egypt where they drive like 1970 taxi cabs from the states, cars on the highway with no headlights on.

      Look at Russian drivers.

        • iLL

          I mean its sooo retarded to insult chinese people, just for insulting. I admit alot of Hong Kong people live in a bubble sometimes. In HK, some (not all) they think there shit dont stink. Linette chinese origins are more then likely from the mainland. Mine is from the mainland and damn proud of it. My parents might of been born in Hong Kong, but they still connect with there origins in China because we are all chinese! Its just so silly for people to insult there own culture constantly. To disagree with government is one thing, but the common people…totally different issues.

          • MrT

            yea she doing it all over the internet, she spends 90%of the day on different forums all over Asia putting the boot in on the motherland, suggests to me she got something going on .
            Maybe fkin some American spokesman for the government or the press.

          • Jin Ch’in

            All Hong kong people are Chinese just because for 150 years or so they got raped by the British doesn’t make them any less Chinese. From what i seen of Linette posts she thinks she is “white” and above being Chinese and like to side with “expats” i bet if a white person tell her to jump she would ask how high.

            She has no back bone and would be manipulated by mainly four or five sad old white guys on here.

          • cheong

            Hear, hear, I totally agree with you.

            As an old oversea Chinese Taoist/Buddhist, I find that your comment is very refreshing and most of all a reminder to all Chinese that your ancestor did not originate from Africa or wherever BUT from the Mainland China.

            Zhong Guo wan sui wan sui wan wan sui

            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt,

            May our Goddess of Mercy(Kwan Yin) & Lord Buddha bless you, my dear lad.

            Have a nice day.

          • Mighty

            Cheong, with all due respect, unless you’re a monk you should refrain from saying ‘Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt’.

          • cheong

            As an old Taoist/Buddhist, I say it everyday.

            We should not be and or are refrain from saying it.

            Ask any monk, is an ordinary Taoist/Buddhist not allow to say:

            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt ??????????????????????

            Is there a ruling in Taoism/Buddhism that no one can say:
            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt
            except the monk or the nun
            ????????????????????????????????????

            In my prayer, everyday, I say:

            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt

            It is a practice since more than a hundred year ago since my grandparent time including my great grand mother’ time, more so on the 1st & 15th days of every Lunar calender’ month.

            You are not a Taoist/Buddhist, I dont expect you to understand, forgivable.

            Most of all in our Taoism/Buddhism, there is no compulsion.

            Anyway, thank you for your due respect even without it, it alright, I understand.

            Have a nice day.

          • Mighty

            Holy Buddha! You are just like everyone who makes assumption. I am Buddhist. I pray 3 times a day. But that’s besides the point. If you’re a true Buddhist you would be saying your prayer in your heart. You don’t need to blurb it out in every single comment you post on an internet blog/forum. Do you see Christians saying “Amen” after every post?

          • Mighty

            PS: It seems to be more like a ‘family tradition’ passed down from your great grand mother’s time.

          • Barney Rubble

            amen to that!

          • Mighty

            hahaha… ok, fine. Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt

          • cheong

            If you do not wish to say it, it is up to you.

            In Taoism/Buddhism, like I said before, there is no compulsion.

            If the Christians do not want to say amen, that is up to them.

            If you dont like me saying:
            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt

            then simply dont read my postings.

            Like I have said before & if you are a Buddhist,
            there is no compulsion.

            So, what is your problem with me saying:
            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt

            Is it against the law or the Buddhist’ teaching????????

            Have a nice day

          • Mighty

            The point is…. what are you trying to gain? Every single post, you have to state “as an old Taoist/Buddhist” blah blah blah… and end with “Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt”. Please don’t tell me you’re spreading Buddhism. If you really know what Buddhist’s teaching is about then you should know it’s more about being passive. Don’t cram it down people’s throat with every post.

            Unless you’re wearing a safron robe and sport six incense bunt dots on top of your bald head, I’m starting to think you’re a fake Buddhist.

          • cheong

            Again as I have said, there is no compulsion in Buddhism and I am not preaching Taoism or Buddhism.

            There is absolutely nothing wrong in say:
            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            On the contrary, I think you are not a Buddhist.

            And it doesnt matter to me at all at all.

            No Buddhist in the world would get upset with another because of the phase:
            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt.

            In fact we are encouraged to say it.

            Why as a Buddhist, you need to hid from being known that you a Buddhist???????????
            or is it that you want to use vulgarity or profanities
            which are not permitted in Buddhism
            and may I remind you of that, ie, if you are a Buddhist.

            In Buddhism, we are also encouraged to to help to spread peace in the world, are you helping by using vulgarities & profanities here?????

            Ask not what Buddhism have done for you, ask what have you done for Buddhism.
            By using vulgarities & profanities & spreading hatred in this forum & looking down on others???

            I make it LOUD & CLEAR that I am
            old oversea Chinese Taoist/Buddhist.

            Am I preaching to you or anyone here by saying:
            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            You mean to say that people minds here are so easily influenced by me saying:
            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            then be converted to Buddhism???????????

            Cor Blimmey, you are really something.

            Let me tell you, I lived in UK for a long long time during the 60′ & I was not converted to Christianity,
            and Toronto, Moscow and many other places

            I also lived in the Muscat for a long long time in the 80′ and I was not converted to Islam

            What is the problem with you, my lad.????

            Like I said before, dont read my postings if you dont like me saying:

            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            Havent you heard of the thing about human’ right???
            or was it the 1st amendment, LOL.

            Have a nice day.

          • Mighty

            I was not upset. I only asked you why you have to sign on and off with all the Buddhist in every single post. I wanted to know if that is necessary.

            I’m allowed to say “FUCK” or whatever the fuck I feel like saying toward anyone who’s been less than courteous with me. Have you seen me use profanity toward anyone without provocation? Don’t act like a high monk and lecture me about Chinese heritage and Buddhism. Do you even know the differences between Mahayana and Therevada? I think not. Just because your grandmother taught you a prayer doesn’t give you any more merits than me.

          • cheong

            To you, all I can say is:
            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt.

            say all the “F” if it pleases you till kingdom comes.

            Please do not lose your temper.

            If you are a Buddhist, really, such word should not come out of your mouth.

            In any case as i have said, there is no compulsion in Buddhism. So if it please you to be angry, so be it.

            Gee, you are really something!!!!!!!

            May our Goddess of Mercy(Kwan Yin) & Lord Buddha have mercy on you & forgive for being young & dangerous.

            And may I remind you that I was once young before.

            So I dont blame you.

            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            Have nice day, you hear? OK??

            My meditations prevent me from losing temper. Maybe another, we can discuss all about Buddhism somewhere other than here on CS. At the mean time immerse yourself in ‘om mani padme hum’ if you already have it.

          • cheong

            Your meditation??
            Now that’s something new.
            You mean you are not angry??
            LOL & behold.

            Also you mean it is not allowed in CS not to talk about Buddhism??? or Taoism.???

            Or even the statement:
            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            Hmmnnn,

            You have a nice day,
            will you? & dont get your knicker in a twist.
            OK??

          • Mighty

            I am sending you to a cave high up in the mountains to meditate. Go and clear your mind. Come back and you will talk less.

          • Mighty

            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt

          • cheong

            Thank you for the statement:
            Namo Orr Mi tau Futt.

            Have a nice day.

            ps: you see, you are getting the hang of it, LOL.
            It will makes the world a better place.

            LOL!

          • cheong

            LO & Behold!!
            One does not need to go to the mountain to mediate.
            This is not the stone age, silly boy.!!

            My mind is always clear as crystal glass not like yours, full of anger.

            Talk less, me??

            You should be addressing that statement to yourself, LOL

            Have a nice day, please for god’ sake.

          • Mighty

            OMB (Oh my Buddha)!! Are you sure you’re really a Buddhist? It was metaphorically ‘going up the mountain to meditate’. It’s all attained through your mind and soul.
            Who’s silly now?

          • cheong

            “Metaphorically” ????
            =====================
            “I am sending you to a cave high up in the mountains to meditate.”
            ==========================
            You silly boy!!!
            Really you twist & turn your words when you run out of logic.

            Really, you are really something !!!!
            Please use logic & IQ when you want to debate with me.

            Anyway, you are one of the better one when come to a debate.
            So, come on, bring it on, show me what you young guy have.

            But remember, no vulgarities & profanities.

            Have a nice day

          • Mighty

            When I said ‘I’m sending you’ you really expect me to book you on a flight and send you on your journey to a mountain in China? Or if closer to home, drive over to pick you up and send you to a mythical mountain? You really are a fake Buddhist who knows nothing about metaphors that is so rich in Buddha’s teachings.

          • cheong

            Like I have said before, you are really something.

            There is no such thing as a fake Buddhist, it either you are or you are not.

            Please define fake Buddhist.

            What is the definition of a FAKE BUDDHIST????
            Please google it, will you??
            please.
            Do you have Google???

            Is it one that post in CS????
            that say:

            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt.

            If that is the case then, I admit, according to you logic, I am a fake Buddhist.

            But Mr Spock will say it’s logical because all Buddhist & Taoist do say:

            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt.

            Have a nice day

          • Mighty

            Hmm…. just as I was about to believe you you threw in ‘Spock’? The Vulcan character of the sci-fi ‘Star Track’ franchise? Oh…Lord Buddha.

            Chill, you really need to meditate. You’ve been using caps lock and exclamation marks “!!!”. Ok, I give you the benefit of doubt, however, you must practice more to stay in a peaceful state.

          • cheong

            Hahahaha

            Meditate, really!! I am at peace, retired and whiling my time away with you.

            Silly boy.!!!

            At least, Mr Spock speak of nothing but logic, but you, nothing except utterly nonsense.

            Would it makes you happy to say you have won the debate??

            eh??

            Horay, hip, hip horay, hip, hip horay, hip, hip horay

            The all Mighty have won, silly boy.

            Please dont get me wrong, though, you are not the Almighty, LOL.

            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt.

            Have a nice day.

            ps: hope you dont get offended by my statement:
            Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt

          • Mighty

            At peace? Then why are you still yelling? Mr.Spock logic. I really don’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for an old man who lives by the philosophy of a fictional character.

          • Mighty

            You sill old Trekki. “Do you have Google?” is like me asking and AIDS patient “Do you have HIV?”.

            Yes, Google ‘Namo Orr Mi Tau Futt’ and the top 4 results are your nonsense posts in ChinaSmack.

          • Mighty

            iLL, I once felt exactly that way as we were brought up to love our ‘motherland’. Then I learn how these mainlanders don’t see us in the same light. Motherland doesn’t love us. Now I hate them with a passion.

          • iLL

            Mighty, but i don’t think you have the people of the mainland more of the government that controls the government. Most people in the mainland are good people. It is a country of over a billion people, there a going to be assholes in that group too. Its like the States…fuck man look at all those hicks and hillbillies in the south and midwest. There are tons of asses there too. Its hard to generalize hate to a whole country when its really only a small percentage of them are dicks.

          • Mighty

            iLL, what if I present my reason to you once and you honestly tell me how you feel about the subject matter. (I’m assuming you’re a mainlander). I have tried once and failed to get even an acknowledgement because he’s too busy just arguing about what’s on the surface and ignoring the roots.

          • iLL

            I can understand why people hate the CCP, but to hate a person you don’t know, just because he was born on the mainland is crazy to me. Me, no im not from the mainland. I am Canadian born Chinese, with parents from Hong Kong. Plus i probably know more about the 49ers then you ;-) biggest Niners fan.

            My family has bad history with the the cultural revolution, where my my grandfather lost almost everything he and his father built in Guangzhou. He was a wealthy man. He had to goto Hong Kong to get away. 50 years later, what did we get back, a few crappy apartments. The thing with this is, we might not like the CCP and what they represent, but i can not hate the people who has no control on where they were born. I was just lucky enough to be born and raised in Canada, they were not.

          • Mighty

            “probably know more about the 49ers then(sic) you”. HEY THESE ARE FIGHTING WORDS when it comes to my team. Let’s not compare penis size but I’m glad you’re a fellow Niners fan. We’re ready to make another run for the SB this year, barring further injuries to key players. (More on football later).

            Okay, back to the subject here: That’s exactly how I felt, how can mainlanders harbor so much ‘hate’ for those who left the motherland? Life was quite ‘harsh’, to say the least, 30-40 years ago. Those who had the opportunity to leave, and there weren’t many, they were only guilty for leaving China for a better life. They left not for themselves but for their future generations. Most American born Chinese are here now not because they chose to. It was because their parents or grand parents left China so that they (the children and grandchildren) will have a better life. But these people are now labeled as ‘traitors’. WTF, right?

            I’ve lost a friend and a cousin in the war, which I am against, but they paid with their lives as any good citizen would to serve his country. I am proud and have the most respect for them. So when I read some comments by mainlanders about these ‘overseas Chinese’ it pissed me off.

            I understand perfectly about what you were saying. I was brought up this way too. My parents and I’ve been to all Asian countries except one. Can you guess which? Japan. They have deep seeded hatred for Japan which was passed down from their parents then to me. I was very vocal in JapanCRUSH in defending China over disputed islands and wartime atrocities.

            I’ve had numerous encounters with Chinese mainlanders at various places of business, entertainments, and travel. They all exhibit this ‘I’m the real Chinese’ attitude toward anyone who doesn’t speak Putong Hua with a Beijing accent.

            I once explained this to one Chinese neo-nationalist here and he completely ignored the fact. This only reaffirmed what I was beginning to realize.

          • linette lee

            Did I say I hate folks in mainland. What’s the matter with you. I have so many friends from China and even them criticize the regulations and China gov’t. They are very proud like you and don’t like to be criticized by non mainlanders. But they do understand there is a problem in the China gov’t system and regulation.

            Hkese criticize HK gov’t all the time in case you don’t know. They protest and complain about hK gov’t and how they handle things. Go to HK yahoo forum. This is not HK smack it’s china smack. I smack China all I want. lol. I smack Hk in Hk forum…duh….

            If you don’t see problem with their driving especially their motorbikes you shouldn’t be driving yourself.

          • iLL

            yes Hong Kong people complain about HK government, not HK people. Unlike you complain about mainland chinese people and government. Comparing how great Hong Kong is and how crappy China is compared to them. You are allowed to talk all the smack you want, but i can point out how stupid the smack you talk about is.

            No shit there are some horrible driving in China, lets point out the obvious and laugh about it to make myself feel better. :-/

        • Dave

          Watched the Anthony Bourdain Layover HK episode recently. It has some chick going on about how HK isn’t China.

          “I have lots of friends from other countries. They always say I am Chinese; I am from China. And I say “No, I’m not from China! I’m from hong Kong. Hong Kong is different! It’s totally different!”

          • Les Battersby

            Thanks, I liked the Taiwan ep he did, will check this one out.

          • linette lee

            HKese are chinese from Hong kong. Hong kong is being regulated by HK gov’t with Hk laws and regulations. Hk laws don’t do many things that China law is doing. Or they do things that China don’t do. It’s completely different system. Even the common practice is different between Hk and china folks.

            If you feel Hkese are from China that is fine with me. Just don’t tell me I can not use the hospital because I don’t have any money on me when I have a medical emergency. In HK I can use the hospital with no money on me. And don’t tell me it’s okay to drive without following the traffic rules. In HK that’s consider breaking the law and you should be fine or even jailed or license suspended.

          • Dave

            It doesn’t bother me, personally, if HK or TW or Tibet or anyone else says that thy are not Chinese, as in, not part of China. I’m American, these aren’t my concerns.

            But it does bother Chinese people. Even my wife, educated, cosmopolitan, was visibly irritated when she saw that a HK person would say that they “aren’t Chinese.”

            Later she decided, “Eh, I don’t care. HK people can think what they want, we don’t need them.”

            That’s the most you’ll get from a mainlander, I think. “Fine, if they don’t want us to own them, who cares? We are better than they are anyway.”

            Most just seem to think that you are ingrates, and disrespectful to your mother country.

            Either way, the idea is the same: You are Chinese.

          • cheong

            I totally agree with you.

            All Chinese were originated from China so was my grandparent more than a hundred years ago.

            Some might say differently, so probably they are from Africa then they should be black in color henceforth why yellow color ?????????????

            And I personally have no qualm being called yellow, chinamen or chinkie or ching chong ching or whatever.

            So for those who wants to deny that they are Chinese, so be it. I really have no qualm about.

            There is a Chinese saying:
            Fingers bend inward and not outward.

            Good, bad or ugly, we or I am Chinese.

            But then there were/are many Chinese did or have denied their own root because of unforeseen circumstances.

            It is happening here in my birth’ country after they have converted to other religion to get extra privileges
            (special rights) and at the same time condemn us Chinese because of different religion.

            Many even goes to the extent of saying:
            in the name of god, I do this & I do that to the extent of hurting others and they have no qualms about it.

            Sad, really sad.

            But us/me, as an old Taoist/Buddhist, we/me just ignore it & live & let live.

            “sticks & stone wont break my bone”

            A good Taoist/Buddhist must not & should not resort to vengeance, violence, vulgarities & profanities & most of all anything that is evil and morally wrong.

            Confucius said:
            when you embark on a journey of vengeance & revenges.
            prepare two coffins.

            You haven’t been exposed to the extreme prejudice the mainlanders have for overseas Chinese.

          • cheong

            I am afraid that you are wrong.

            I, an old Oversea Taoist/Buddhist Chinese with my ancestor home still in Fujian Province who have been traveling to & fro to China since the late 90′ every 2 to 3 months,

            I have not experienced any or slightest prejudices from the mainland Chinese.

            ( I may not be able to say this in years to come as China get richer & richer as money talks, LOL.

            On the contrary, we or I were/was always welcome as a great guest.

            All those we or I met always makes us or me feel very welcome.

            Unless, we or I (chinese) are from Africa with a dark skin. LOL.

            (no offense to the African)

            Have a nice day

          • Mighty

            Because you travel to Fujian regularly and have not faced ‘prejudice’ you think I am wrong. Nothing bad has happened to you so ‘Evil’ doesn’t exist? How can you tell me I am wrong when you don’t know what I have experienced? My parents were born in Guandong province, and I’ve mentioned in another thread, I have relatives in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou whom I visit regularly. I’m sure I’ve traveled through more of China than you have. So it’s really ignorant of you to say “You are wrong”.

          • cheong

            What have you experienced???

            Tell me, my lad. ??

            But one thing for sure & most probably, your bad experiences was probably in the northern part of China.

            Well, so tell me & all others in this forum.
            We are all ears, right guys/gals ?? right.!!!

            if there is good, there is bad

            if there beauty, there is ugliness
            if there is moral, there is immoral

            You are assuming again. I have been to more parts of China than you. I speak Cantonese, and Toisan dialect, and also Mandarin. And you doubt I have been prejudiced against? All I’m saying was just because you didn’t experience the prejudice toward overseas Chinese doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. And you had the inconsideration to tell me I am ‘wrong’. That’s what angers me. Discounting other’s plight as though you know it all.

            Look, I am sorry that I was wrong by saying “you were wrong???”

            If it makes you happy, then I am sorry to have made you angry.

            Guess what angers me more? Insincere apologies. Half-assed ‘sorry’ is just adding insults to injury. If you’re so holy why can’t you just be the compassionate Buddhist that you claim to be and say ‘sorry’ in a convincing manner?

            Well, I am old & after working all my life, I can afford whatever I want.

            Not a successful Buddhist???

            Well, actually you are right to a certain extent coz I am more of a Taoist than Buddhist.

            (gee, this is something, I really dont want to say out loud but then you said it, now I am telling.)

            Yes, I am very Taoist more Taoist than Buddhist but Buddhism is very close to Taoism so we accept it as equal or higher coz Buddhism is very all about compassion.

            So does that make me an unsuccessful Buddhist???

            If so, so be it, I have no qualm about??

            Yes, in my house, I pray to Goddess of Mercy (Kwan yin), Kwan Gong, the God of Fortune & Tian Gong.

            I know what you are saying. Those HK and taiwanese who are ethnic Chinese ARE Chinese. They are Chinese from Hong kong and Taiwan. It is stupid for them to insist they are not Chinese.

            When I want to get a better background of a Chinese speaking person my questions are as follow:
            1)Are you Chinese?
            2)Chinese from where? China, taiwan, hk, singapore

            The same goes to English speaking person.
            1)Were you born in an English speaking country?
            2)English from where? America, UK, Canada.

            As you can see the second question is the one that gives you an in depth understanding of the person’s background and their culture and their gov’t system.

            The fact that when I tell you I am Chinese and I grew up in my city, and you keep talking to me about neighborhoods inside China or their public schools and their public school holidays….I will give you a puzzle look. I really don’t know. Never been there nor studied in their public school taken their curriculums. The same goes to Taiwan. I don’t know much about inside Taiwan. Never been there. Don’t know which school holidays they celebrate.

            So the Chinese from China should not get so offended with theTaiwanese and Hkese. The Americans don’t get offended when Canadians telling them they are canadians.

            ummm you’re view is extremely inconsistant.

            do you consider americans englishren because they are native speakers of english? if not, your points made no sense.

            your point is basiclally you don’t consider yourself to be a PRC person ( a place that uses the term china to describe itself, but remember prior to 72 china was officially the ROC on Taiwan)

          • linette lee

            What?
            I consider myself Chinese from Hongkong. A citizen under HK gov’t. I follow HK laws and orders.

            A Chinese from Taiwan will consider himself Taiwanese. He is a citizen under Taiwan gov’t. He goes by taiwan laws and orders.

            A Chinese from China is a citizen under China gov’t. He goes by the laws and orders of China gov’t.

            you’re top questions asks if a person is chinese but your bottom ones don’t seem to regard an english speaking person as english. why should a person from a non chinese country be considered chinese if they aren’t from the PRC, HK SAR, or TW? is a dutch/english speaker from South Africa a dutchman or an englishman or a south african?

            okay. Maybe I put it like that.

            is this at a bar? do you know of any specific nightlife spots where attractive hapas, eurasians, amerasians and half breed white girls congregate at in HK? I will be in HK next month and would like to find some spots. I’ll already be doing Lan Kwai Fong and some hotel bars…

        • linette lee

          JIn Ch’in. You are so stupid. You don’t see with your own eyes how they drive. That is a major city with tall buildings. A very busy intersection and not some suburban areas. That is why I am surprised. Imagine people drive like that in Tokyo or Hong kong.

      • Rick in China

        You’re right about Egypt. I didn’t see a single vehicle without dents. The majority of their vehicles have.. I don’t know, several hundred dents. Lots of the dented up cars even glue big pads to the sides/corners of their cars so they don’t get even more dents. Nobody obeys lanes on the roads, and people drive at a wide variety of speeds.. maybe they don’t see what’s going on beside or behind them because half of them don’t have mirrors or bother looking. It’s a truly crazy place to drive.

        While I think Egypt is *worse*, China is still pretty crazy.

        • James

          in the local area, for some reason, the towns w large italian populations seem to have some pretty f’upped driving

          just an anecdote

      • Cauffiel

        Tell me if I’m wrong Linette, but…. maybe she just expects better of her country?

        • linette lee

          they better get better. China is modernizing quickly. They need to control population and give free equal access of education and healthcare to all China folks. I expect a rich country like China do a lot better by now. You know..the country that hosted the olympic game and sent space station into space……….and they can’t regulate traffic. O.o

      • Cauffiel

        Well, I just watched the video, and I gotta say…. almost every accident involving a non-car vehicle, the non-car was completely at fault. I bike all over Dongguan, about 100 miles a week, and I’m generally not scared of the cars… I’m scared of the non-car vehicles. Totally unpredictable. The worst car drivers? Well, lets just say… if I see a Mercedes or BMW, I am extra cautious.

        All in all, though, driving in Guangdong is orders of magnitude less terrifying than what I’ve seen in other parts of China. I’ve heard Jiangxi is one of the worst.

    Chinese have never been good with geography, which he could of over come with a GPS Android phone and Baidu maps, could of cut that journey time down to 1 month.

    • 剑胆琴心

      hahaha!
      i am a typical direction idiot. after i have a smart phone, i use baidu map almost everyday…hahaha!
      sometimes i got lost in street,after asked several people still can not find out the right way, i hate myself for being so dumb.but some mfkers in street are so hateful.even they do not know, they will always point a way for you,so you must ask 2 persons to confirm.rubbish low class people everywhere.especially those door men in malls.if you ask them where the toilet,they will just tell you a very very distant one.typical low salary and uneducation people full of anger wanna revenge all the world.
      too many sick people in china.
      so i do not deal with old people and doormen when i need to ask where to go.

      • MrT

        Id like to meet you, i think your my kind of dumb woman.

        • 剑胆琴心


          and once i asked a door man in mall where is the toilet because i thought normally no toilet at the ground floor.and this mall is super busy and big,i did not wanna walk up and down again and again.this mfker told me go to a 5 star hotel next to the mall.and i was so naive i said thanks to him then went to that hotel.and found out toilet there.people inside big hotel are very nice in fact even said hi and smiled to me. i did not dress lousy that day.after i got back,i saw there is a toilet just close to the side door in mall.i was so angry felt like a fool.

          but what i also find out is,if you dress proper,these BA in big brand stores are really nice even though you do not wanna buy,but even you dress proper those BA in small stores still are super bitchy even though you wanna buy just taking time to make decision.every woman hates bitchy BA.

          • maja

            do you realize this.. now?
            and you’re solution is… buying more expensive?

            …btw, most times lowly staff members are not supposed to know their working places, I wouldn’t be surprised if most doormen never actually stepped inside “their” doors.

          • maja

            I was walking through a deserted shopping mall yesterday (the one under the olympic park) and what I supposed was a woman with a clothes bag who was getting home from her shift run up to her daughter because the kid was kind of crossing my path. I thought the woman was afraid I would have trampled her daughter even if there wasn’t any crowd around. and if I had to take a guess I’d say she was anxious because they were not supposed to walk through that hall.

          • 剑胆琴心

            i do not know how to say this. i think most people feel uncomfortable when go to places for rich or full of luxury brands.me too, because i am still young and do not dress seriously most of time.also i am poor,hahaha.
            but when i dress proper i do not mind go to take a look around.when i just come to shanghai,i went to a mall,walked to a store,it’s Issey Miyake,because i did not dress ugly or dirty or poor,nice korean style working suit and good shoes.that BA was very nice to me,even asked me try it on.but holy shit,when i looked at the tag,a normal shirt for 5000rmb.of couse i did not show anything at my face,the BA even said bye to me with smile.
            once i went to a big bank on the bund sent big money to abroad,over half a million usd( of course,this money has no any connection to me,hahaha).it’s their head bank in shanghai.my parents walked inside with me then sat down at the hall waiting for me,soon a worker walked to them told them to leave it’s not for other people enjoy ac inside.then i told the worker they are my parents,that worker smiled at me then said fine,even gave me a cup of water.

            i enjoy things i like,no matter how cheap it is.but i also enjoy go to expensive stores to take a look around update some taste.

          • maja

            I think I get your point, I’m probably just a bit tired of the welth disparity I can see, but that’s mostly because I grew tired of it with time, even if I’m still young.

            sometimes I believe the people expects to be treated badly in a common context and like royal family in foolishly expensive outlets. and… well, not everyone will have the money to buy a 5k shirt, not today not in 50 years, but still everyone need to dress up.

          • maja

            I don’t know how to say this, I answered you this morning but the answer has not been published on the blog. so I assume someone prefers we don’t speak to each other about this matter.

        yea, many options.

      Haha, you’re right… hundreds of millions believe Xinjiang, Tibet, Taiwan, parts of Russia, India, Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Mongolia-if-oil-or-other-resources-are-ever-found-there in abundant supply, and the entire South China Sea to the very shores of bordering countries belong to China… that is a the definition of “never been good with geography”! :-D

      • MrT

        Good point,and we all know it should belong to the Americans and that they should build up there military forces in the region to destabilize it so they can get their hands on it.
        You forgot Myanmar and Vietnam both communist goverments the US is arse licking right now.
        No double standards there!

          • MrT

            you did read back what you wrote?

          • Cauffiel

            Yeah…. I know what I said. China criticizes military action of the U.S. in unstable parts of the world so they can get away with making arbitrary claims to land and resources in bordering, non-hostile countries without reproach. Thats their game plan. Most people outside of China aren’t falling for it.

          • MrT

            god you proper brainwashed on western media dribble.

            Whats Hong Kong, Macau,Tibet,Xinjiang got to do with any other country accept China?
            Fuck all is the answer.

            Cauffiel, are you in primary school? Good for you kiddo showing that you care about world events!

  • Probotector

    “After the idea of returning home came to him 5 years ago, he made a 60kg simple house like this, and departed from Guangdong walking towards his hometown. Along the way, Liu Lingchao refused to to accept anyone’s help, relying only on collecting discarded waste for a living, carrying his “house” forward on his journey by day, and camping out by the side of the road at night. He has already worn out three such “houses”, and today only has about 20 kilometers more before arriving home.”

    So what is the point of this endeavour? Was he so unable to find work in Shenzhen he had to build a makeshift house and walk all the way back to Guangxi because he simply had no money for a bus ticket, or is this some sort of weird ‘back to nature’ experiment ‘to see if he could actually do’ it or something?

    • The Enlightened One

      Maybe, I did a few things just to see if I could do them. Why not? It builds self-respect and tests your mind and body. Five years seems like a hell of long time to be hauling a house on your back but we forget the guy was probably already killing himself working long hours in Guangdong anyway. May as well at least live life on his terms for a percentage of it.

      • Probotector

        When you consider the risks involved, perhaps ‘to so if you could do it’ isn’t worth it.

        • The Enlightened One

          Well that depends entirely on perception. Like Arnie said “It’s just one of those things, some people want to get in a race car and go in a quarter-mile, 60 seconds, to me that’s crazy.” When he was explaining bodybuilding in the 70s during an interview. It’s just his thing.

          • Probotector

            Perhaps, but this is a lot more risky and bizarre than pumping iron.

          • maja

            still it’s his own life. you’re not forced to follow his path, nobody is asking you too. I wish more people here would consider doing something beacause they actually feel like it and viceversa.

  • The Enlightened One

    Well, although the motives are questionable.. it doesn’t change the fact that this guy is one tough bastard. If he had a better education or some sort of guidance… the dude could have built quite a career. Chinese can definitely be persistent.

  • Song of the article: “蜗牛” by Jay Chou *
    http://youtu.be/8nd8Xcs3rOw

    “Where is the hidden blue sky to be found?
    I doubt the confines of this cumbersome shell
    Floating gently, I follow the light breeze
    A show of lifelong pain are murmurs I can’t tell

    Step by step I muster forth
    to await my chance to calmly look upon the sun
    Heavy is my burden, yet light are my aspirations
    as short as my horizons lie, far do my dreams run

    Pace by pace I advance ahead
    soar I will, atop a leaf apex will I roam
    As limited as my means are, sweat and tears will I flow
    that day awaits when my dreams will come home

    Let the wind howl, sweat and tears will I flow
    that day awaits when my dreams will come home”

    [* 蜗牛 means “snail”]

I will even convince the college skanks from UNLV I bedded last week at the new Hakkasan nightclub in Vegas to lick him clean. I will take that hut and walk around the world and still be more younger, look more handsome and slay more snatch from model bitches in my newly built champagne room inside the hut then every single one of you posters on this site. I will start from China and ChinaSmack my way through every continent, country, city, town and village. Your wives, mistresses, girlfriends, sisters and daughters will all be seeded in my Shag Hut if I am drunk or high enough to find them attractive. I will need a red rope and security guards to hold all you female bitches from disturbing the God.

His Homeland. He probably saved every small bit of money. He is still young. He can now start a happy family and provide shelter and life.
    It is not easy to get wealthy in China unless you are already wealthy from start. Very similar to United States America. Rich get richer. poor get poorer. But with some endurance, work and sacrifice one can get the Golden Dream.
    Also remember one can easily lose all riches as quick as the wind can blow thru.
