    from the Onion?

    Unfortunately, no, it was a real article. Quite possibly one of the foreign subeditors seeing an opportunity for self-expression of the kind that'd fly under the boss' radar.

    Also if you’ve seen my photo mojo anywhere, I seems to have left it on the plane.

    Dunno if it'd've helped photographers, but this well was looking depressingly dry. Sorry.

    This tree…

    ...can see into you, apparently. No mysterious, wind-driven branch knocked my hat off.

    Confucian Temple, Beijing.

  • Speaker: “Foreign forces”, hope and Hong…, in reply to jh,

    In Beijing some people are forced to live underground.

    Not really, no. Well, accomodation in Beijing is insanely expensive. Basement apartments are cheaper than above ground apartments, but people have options. And sure, some have decided it's better to open a manhole cover and drop down to a nice, cosy space beside a central heating pipe - stories of this nature from a variety of post-Soviet and former Eastern bloc countries have been doing the rounds for years - but when this story broke in the Beijing media ummm.... late last year? early this year? the authorities quickly sent cops around to force people above ground again.

    And that about sums up the amount of time I have for the rest of your "argument".
