The Olympic don’ts

Courtesy of the FP blog, a Chinese government poster informing citizens people of eight things they should not ask foreigners:

  1. Don’t ask about income or expenses.
  2. Don’t ask about age.
  3. Don’t ask about love life or marriage.
  4. Don’t ask about health.
  5. Don’t ask about someone’s home or address.
  6. Don’t ask about personal experience.
  7. Don’t ask about religious beliefs or political views.
  8. Don’t ask what someone does.

Huh. What’s left?

  1. This reminds me of Professor Umbridge’s educational decrees. From Harry Potter, for the uninitiated.

  2. hahaha, in India remove all the “don’t”s and you have a standard set of conversation topics to launch with random foreigners.

  3. If you want to seriously get into the RC helicopter hobby, then a glow engine chopper is perfect for realism, building, maintaining and flying! You will be able to personalize your chopper exactly the way you want it, like hover time and rotor speed. Once you get a feel for your helicopters, and have everything adjusted perfectly, your rc airplane will fly just the way you want it and not the way some factory decided it should. Vantage’s compact size and tail-light feature, in combination with its powerful C4 led, make it the perfect tactical hands-free light for firefighting personnel and other first responders who require lighting tools with extreme brightness and long run times, said wolf-eyes light Chief Operating Officer Ray Sharrah. Its integrated bracket design makes it extremely easy to use – firefighters can attach or remove the tacticale flashlight in seconds without the need for tools, and rotate it 360 degrees on the swivel clamp
