      Good ole China. Great source of videos depicting car accidents, cyclist accidents, pedestrian accidents, and now this...

      A three-year-old boy riding through a busy intersection in the eastern Chinese city of Wenzhou was rescued by a policeman after a few close calls with oncoming cars.

      Asked where he was going, the toddler said he was on his way to see his mother, an employee at a nearby KFC. He had apparently been left in the care of his grandfather, and slipped out while the latter was in the bathroom.

      Zhang, the policeman, learned that the child had made it 1.3 miles from his home before being stopped.

      The boy insisted he was not scared, but the same can't be said of the grandfather, who reportedly found the policeman and the tot on his own while running around in search of his grandson.

      How typical of China that nobody stopped and pulled the boy to safety.

      or look how none of them are slowing down/braking hard, but instead continued the steady pace of the left turn lane, and the boy was able to go where he wants.

      They were late for work at the iphone factory. We've all heard stories about how strict Foxconn can be.

      Remember friend, the grass is always greener...

      Regarding the video, I found it ironic that many Asian people wear surgical masks to stop the spread of viruses (most are not worn for defense), yet won't help a lost child in the middle of the road...

      Look on the bright side. If it were a girl they'd have been colliding with each other while trying to run her over.

      Just a few off the top of my head.

      1. Democracy
      2. Care for the environment
      3. Care for the average person


      Don't get me wrong, I am sure there are plenty of ways that China is better than the US, but to say it is overall better than the US is crazy.

      Why does everyone on these boards assume everyone is always mad? Is that a defensive tactic or something? No one is mad. We are just correcting inaccuracies.

      It saves them from having to form an actual intelligent and structured argument. Generally the use of "he mad" and the ilk are used as place holders for thoughts the user of the term is incapable of sorting out. In short, it's the battle cry of the weak minded. That and the use of the word "hater". Both terms are like the slaw buck-toothed "haw haw yaw" of the weak minded.
