Some Chinese netizens created these poker cards showing 54 big events, news, or phenomenon for China in 2008. They include the May 12 Sichuan Earthquake (black joker), the Beijing Olympics (red joker), the successful launch of Shenzhou #7 (ace of hearts), the Lhasa Tibet riots (ace of spades), etc. All of the cards with some English translation are at EastSouthWestNorth.
