Like the famous Dead Sea in the Middle East, the “Chinese Dead Sea” or “China’s Dead Sea” is a salt lake that has many times more salinity than the ocean.

Comments from NetEase:

尼姑村牛村长 [网易广西防城港市网友]:

This is a good thing so many men wish for but don’t get. The more crowded the better. I bet a lot of women were molested for free, and some tarts were even very happily so!

火柴o女孩 [网易江西省九江市网友]:

Fuck, be careful of becoming pregnant from being crowded, you won’t know who the child’s father is!

圣o仙芙 [网易云南省昆明市网友]:

Feels like our entire lives is like this: A crowded, numb, mutually amusing, self-deceiving illusion, purely a masochistic activity! “Dead Sea”, this name is truly appropriate!!

First and second commenters [above], I really want to whip/slap you guys.

天朝威武万岁 [网易陕西省西安市网友]: (responding to above)

Yeah, I think so too.


With this many people, will some people be made pregnant from the crowding?

九龙扫黄组邓队长 [网易香港网友]:

A woman holding a baby went to see the doctor. The male doctor took a look at the baby and then felt the woman’s breasts. The male doctor said: “Not enough milk, the baby is malnourished!” The woman angrily responded: “You don’t TMD first ask before feeling? I’m the child’s aunt!!”


Isn’t it a dead sea??? Is wearing a condom still necessary???

月君怡然 [网易江苏省网友]:

This many people don’t have to work? This is way too leisurely…

kkkkkkiiiiillll [网易日本网友]:

Avoid the crowds. Personals @ chinaSMACK.
