Fucking shame.

How are thieves supposed to deal with this! After scoping out the terrain, with everything in hand, they dive into the window. BANG, they’re knocked unconscious.

You must admire the creativity/ingenuity of the people of the Heavenly Kingdom.

There’s nothing that can’t be done, only what hasn’t been thought of.

网易浙江省金华市网友 [mingyun36]:

What’s the point of this?

彼岸花繁 [网易北京市网友]: (responding to above)

To deceive thieves. If you discover someone trying to climb into a window, nine out of ten times it is a thief.

网易安徽省合肥市网友 [jjy0310]:

Can all the people spouting shit first look carefully before spouting? It isn’t that there aren’t windows. What more, looking at the outside structure, this should be the stairwell. The fourth picture is very also clear. This area has windows on the side and this is normal [intended] design. Can you people please go home and see if your own residential neighborhoods are like this. Painting windows on the outer wall may be out of consideration for overall aesthetics. After all, the outer area of the wall is quite large and a bit monotonous. This has nothing to do with [bad] quality or design.

网易广东省广州市网友 [好人坏人都是我]: (responding to above)

The reporter is making a big deal out of nothing, the blueprints simply did not have open windows and whether painted windows on the outside looks good or not is a matter of opinion. Those who are spouting shit for no reason are all those who have never gone to the Tibetan area where actually many Tibetan area buildings have fake windows painted on them, and even window ledges.

You’re the one spouting shit, what have you understood in your reading? Construction projects all need to submit their designs for approval, so what do you think it means when even this can be approved? If it has nothing to do with the design, then does it cost nothing to “draw legs on a snake” [adding something superfluous] like this? Who pays for this money? If it is just for aesthetics, do you think this sort of superficial-ism is good? That government leaders like this [that allow this] are okay?

网易广东省深圳市网友 [1323435345]: (responding to above)

It’s very good, quite creative.
Third floor [referring to above commenter], you know cock [nothing]. And construction projects all needing to submit their designs for approval, I wonder if the colors need to be submitted for approval.

网易上海市长宁区手机网友 [爱看新闻的猫]: (responding to above)

I work in design and I ding the first floor [referring to jjy0310]. There are already ordinary windows and these were done for decorative effect. What more, these are clearly [painted] on where the diagonal staircases are, so it’s not possible to have open windows there. I personally think this design is creative, and in the particular circumstances considered economically suitable.

网易山东省青岛市网友 [xuejianjun20]: (responding to above)

4th floor SB, you’re the one who really knows cock. Colors of course have to be audited/approved. Plans need to be submitted with consideration for what colors the government leaders like. Only after they’re approved can construction begin. You think in such a large construction project that what colors and styles you want is what goes? Developers don’t have that decision-making power.
