The Chinese life, you are born, que then die.
Stan, you're holding a gun to God's head. I can't think of a metaphor that's better than this.

It's better than the American life. You work so the rich can get richer, then you die.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

i used to resent queues in India, because they were often not real queues (with some bullies or well-connected people cutting in ahead) or there were no queues with everyone pushing in, stampedes etc, but after experiencing the habit in the USA and other countries, now, I see it as the best symbol of human civilization! It warms my heart to see one. I could simply stand in one just to feel the joy of being in civilized company. Good on you China! Nice pictures!
The queueing habit is growing in India too and am real happy to see it!
