There may be at least hundreds (thousands sounds a tad hyperbolic), but what exactly does that figuremean?

That someone commissioned the suppliers of escalators to install them in building ...



No, she won't admit it. Even she does, she will turn it into a glorifying story.

There is nothing wrong with a positive attitude. But that's a totally different matter when it comes to public offices, especially those held by people who are watched over by none other than themselves.

She wishes she could (really make the distinction between who do care about China and who do love picking faults)!

You started a thread with a very insulting title. This already shows how you hold view toward Chinese.

Whether you see it as an insult or not is your business -- and I totally respect your stance, but if my harsh words could make China a better place, then I have no regrets.

You really think cursing Chinese as p... will make China a better place?

What logic behind this?

Just came across this piece of news on China Daily

Airport closed as rains sink runway

Some may counter this is just one problem? Or others might say "it is designed to be like this"?

Yes, yes... a train crash and an escalator breakdown in China... wow, whackydoo for the likes of Dense Macabre and Spinaker.

Nothing like a bit of schadenfreude for the local whingers and whiners.

Strange that they prefer to live here than return home... wonder why?

Terrible shame ............

All that effort to put in escalators which are just moving stairs ........

Or even stairs when stationary and not moving .........

So that people could complain ..........


And who are these people who complain and where is the data for the alleged problem(s) ........ ?

Like the proponents ........

Few and far between .........

And anonymous and mysterious .........

Oh, how I do wish an escalator in the US or Europe would fail .......

Then we could have hours of fun ..........

About nothing ............
