haha. yes, it is the number one priority of a lot of old chinese, they don't leave a single grain of rice on the table, even if it makes them sick, I'd never seen anything like it in my life before, almost to the point of insane stupidity! Like animals! Bolting their food! Scraping the meat of bones, literally leaving scratch marks on the bones! It's a throwback to the great leap forward when everyone was starving, it reduces the people of China to survive on their animal instincts, almost becoming like animals with their eating habits, and a lot of this still exists today, another stage in their development, reducing the madness and the sometimes animal habits of eating at the dinner table.

I know that's going to offend a lot of Chinese what I just wrote, but it's true, I'm only writing the truth.

The more CHina develops, the more they're slowly realising just how bad so many recent periods in their history were. The sexual revolution slowly happening in the major cities, the starvation period reducing their eating habits to animal levels, only when CHina becomes fully developed will they actually have a full concept of just how low the country did sink, of how deep the hole they were in was, of how their culture was completely destroyed at all levels of society, sexual, cultural, educational. Perhaps then they might finally realise that perhaps certain pol.itical figures of the past weren't exactly the great almighty godlike figures that they still make them out to be.

But of course, these were just minor "small" mistakes.

China has been civilized for 5000 years whereas middleway comes from a savage and crude part of the world , where even common courtesy and manners are unknown .

when virtue of thriftness became another target of criticism?

We believe when an animal is slaughtered for meat, every part of it should be consumed.  And we are creative enough to make them delicious. Take poutry dishes for example, wherever you go in China, you will see, we eat chicken and duck feets, duck necks, stomach, etc etc. They don't only appear in low-end eateries, fancy restaurants serve these dishes too.  This is considered a gratitude towards the food that Mother Nature grants us.  Not only us Chinese, but my Spanish and Italian friends told me their peoples think the same way.  So when world's food crisis is a imminent threat to us ALL, the way  how people in some developed world treat food is a too wasteful. Take chicken for example, in US, people consume white meat and chicken legs, and the rest part will be, i don't know, made into fertilizers, or ended up in some dog's food or even thrown away?  Don't you think it is a waste when millions of  people on this planet  go to bed hungry?

China has always been a populous nation, understandably, plagued by famine throughout the its history.  People in their 50s and above have fresh memory of the latest one in 1960-1963, tens of thousdands of people starved to death. When I grew up, we still used food ration coupons. The ration for each adult for each month is around 7.5 kilo That's the reason why the idea of self-reliance on grain supply is  well received in our country and why economist  Lester Brown with World Wide Watch was considered as "just another prejudiced westerner" when he remarked: " China could be a  burdern to world's grain supply in early 1990s.  So don't blame them.

As for sexual revolution, do I have to remind you which country in the world has the largest porn industry?  Whose president was almost driven out of the White House due to an "inapproriate relationship" with an intern?

And, I've studied psychology in my college. It is not the first time you hinted sex on this forum. What does that mean? Well, judging from the way you speak, I can tell you are probably in late 20s or early 30s, so libido....understandable. But if you criticise China by something you are probably actively engaged in, then you are flatout hypocrite, isn't it?

Actually, it's not a bad idea, now that I've tested it. When I helped a neighbor move in a couple of weeks ago, that's how we got the mini-fridge to his apartment: I strapped it to my back with some baggage straps and wore it like a backpack. Worked pretty well, much easier than trying to carry it.

SS the moral police ,

middleway should be allowed to defend himself . The last time I saw him he was hairy and ugly enough to fend off criticisms.  Your English is bad , teacher and your logic is worse .  The Chinese have always been envied and hated ,more for their virtues ( frugality , diligence and law abiding ) than their vices .

How are the tree branches nowadays ?  Better than those Hitler was swinging along 60 odd years ago ?:):):)
