Comments from Sina Weibo:

孙小辰辰辰:

“I’m back/home”, only to open the door and see a room without a soul in sight. At this moment, one’s mood… might be better to just be raped. [呵呵]

雷雨佳9527:

If you say “I’m home”, what do you do if someone is inside your home?

鱼头没有刺:

Do you think swindlers/scammers read Weibo? I’m so nervous. [拜拜]

aaoteman:

The eighth one is because the elevator has a surveillance camera, which is installed right above the buttons, so if you stand underneath it, if the other person were to come at you, he would be captured by the surveillance camera, and security will know.

在WC小憩:

Whose door at home has a chain?

慈婉彤:

The first one I often use… as long as there is a suspicious person, I’ll always pretend to be on the phone: “Hubby, I’m downstairs, how about you come down to join me for a stroll…?” [拜拜][拜拜][拜拜] Clever!! And sad. [悲催]

杜冲霄:

Eat until you’re fat, that’s safer than anything else. [呵呵]

Lau_MinWoo:

What delivery boys will deliver to your door [nowadays, referring to a popular sentiment that door-to-door delivery services are becoming lazier]?

卖萌的浩zi:

I’ve been going to school these few years, and when I get out, it is also very late. The paths I walk are all small roads where there can be tens of meters before each streetlamp, but I’ve never been afraid. I’ve always held to ruthless principle of “hitting a girl in the bosom, and kicking a boy in the crotch” to tide me through countless walks through the night.

邓邓邓_stronger:

How frightening the third one is! [汗] Making it as if you have a ghost in your home.

MrSeraph:

I know an entire suite of self-defense skills, but haven’t yet had to use any. [呵呵]

王溪Ann:

Actually, you guys don’t understand, the first reaction for a lot of girls is to use their bodies to shield their bags/purses.

RoShan大魔王00:

Why would manly women carry bags/purses? [拜拜]

新东方烹饪学院院花:

[拜拜] If the strange is handsome, then the girl would probably walk slower.

回首又见他12138:

Every time I walk my dog and a see vulgar/lecherous man, I’ll say “Pudding!!! Stop biting people!! I can’t afford it!!!”

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
