Chinese threadPost the best of China
>>4157407i wonder if there's car crash compilations like this for other countries
>>4157414The colour of that smoke, everyone in that room will have cancer by new years.
>>4157419what a fucking hero
>>4157577I dunno, you could try searching "car crash compilation [insert country here]" on youtube.
>>4157593What the fuck do you mean?
>>4157631how does that even happen?accelerated on a slope, brakes went out, panicked and forgot to turn/the steering ALSO went out?that or murder>>4157457keep seeing these mopeds explodeI know the reason is basically poor quality/upkeep, but does a mechanic anon here know whats actually happening?
>>4157417Did Michael Bay fucking direct China? Why is there suddenly fire?
>>4157637In that scooter's case, it's a battery fire. Cells get damaged, chemical components that weren't supposed to mix do, they start outgassing and getting hot, the gas is flammable.
>>4157419Fuck yeah, saved both of them. Real man right there
>>4157423what a hero
>>4157653It makes me wonder if I would have the courage and reaction time. That man saw it and within half a second was on it.
>>4157392>>4157395>>4157397>>4157398This thread is too quiethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjNpRbNdR7Ehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f6gDZlZTQ0
>>4157429No fucking way this is real, it's like a charlie chaplin skit
>>4157427something tells me everyone got their shot in that building
>>4157644Many cheap gas scooters have the inside of the body at the front serve as the fuel tank. When it hits a car, the front breaks open, spilling gas onto the hot engine/exhaust. >>4157688I heard some Chinese entity was trying to build reusable self landing first stage rockets like spacex. Is that one of them?
>>4157649anyway to prevent it?also is it a poor quality issue, or more of a "theres just literally a billion chinks so this is bound to happen at some point"
>>4157687You really need sound for that one
>>4157669And you need appropriate music for that one too
>>4157725Preventing it is about the same as with any other lithium battery, such as those in phones and laptops. Don't charge and discharge it too fast, and don't subject it to physical shock. If the battery is swollen, properly dispose of it immediately. When you see the smoke, it's already too late. If it happens spontaneously, and you were using the product like you were supposed to, it's a quality issue.
>>4157431It's not organ harvesting though, it's for the chinese slave market and it's a by-product from the one-child policy and their pension system (which if you don't know is that non-government workers won't get a pension and has to rely on their kids + savings until their death). Either way looking at all these videos, imagine that the number of kidnapped kids in China was roughly 12-15x more than it is nowadays just two decades ago, and the police doesn't do shit because you know.. commies and corruption goes hand in hand. Not to mention newborns are even stolen from maternity hospitals, with employees and doctors of a medical institution involved.. such a sick country.
>>4157674kek based thank you this makes the thread way better
>>4157745Holy fuck I wish they invade Taiwan, imagine chinks trying to perform a massive amphibious landing
>>4157732> not posting the real audio
>>4157665what is wrong with this guy's fingers? is intense enough gameboy usage from a young age able to cause skeletal deformities or something?
>>4157790>>4157791>>4157793>>4157798>>4157800You are embarrassing yourself with some of these. Have a proper look, they are collapsing due to flooding
>>4157432What the fuck even is China
>>4157457SORRY FOR PARTY ROCKING
>>4157423I don't get it.
>>4157659HAHAHA No fucking way. classic NSW
>>4157398i do construction in america, pretty common actually
>>4157461Jesus. Any chance he survived?
>>4157435wtf is that?
>>4157992>Make a shitty damn system that leads to flooding>SEEE IT NOT CHINA FAULTlol
>>4157443I assume they're trying to avoid some sort of sensor or even maybe an x-ray? I have no clue does anyone here know what they're trying to avoid by doing this?
China is a funny place
>>4158058A lot of escalators in China are very poorly made and the top platform will give out, exposing the treads recirculating back down. If someone gets caught the motor will pull their body in and crush them. I’ve seen a few videos of it and it’s pretty brutal.
>>4158058It's an infamous video of a mother and child leaving the escalator, the pad caves in, they're sucked into the gears and manages to save the child, but gets slowly ground to death.
>>4157995>what is ChinaIt's a civilization that hasn't hit the reset button in ~3000 years. It's easy to judge from the comfort of a representative democracy that's institutionalized the concept of overthrowing the government, but this is why it's so valuable to live in a system that prioritizes the ability to change. Here Anon, this is quite long but it's incredibly informative and the guy does good research:https://youtu.be/RSAhtc3RcMs
>>4158084China really is so fucking interesting. No other nation on earth has ever faced such carnage on a regular basis. For the last 4000 years China had 10 to 20% of the entire population killed every ~100 years. You have to remember that for most of human history China made up 40% of the entire worlds population so having 10 to 20% of that population die regularly would be like if Europe decided to have a WW2 once a generation.
>>4158063based. this is the kind of parenting we (the uk) need.
>>4158077>nowhere within 15 feet of an escalator is safe in china
>>4158049a giant industrial explosion of fertiizer precursor products
>>4157414batteries are worrying me more and more
>>4157661Those people seem to lack a survival instinct.
>>4157665You may not like it but this is what the peak male body for playing mobile games look like.
>>4157649Cold places are like that, you just feel like taking a nap.
>>4158084>You have to remember that for most of human history China made up 40% of the entire worlds population so having 10 to 20% of that population die regularly would be like if Europe decided to have a WW2 once a generation.Thirty years war?
>>4158084Does it not count the egyptians or sumerians?
>>4157816Damn how unlucky do you have to be. Right in the noggin.
>>4157787I'm watching this through step by step in slowmo and if it wasn't chinese I would not believe it was real.What the hell was that? Was he entirely enveloped in plasma and disintegrated or did he get lifted up? At 5s you see what looks like the hat come back down?
>>4158058Zoomer confirmed. Anyone that's been on the internet long enough would have seen at least two Chinese escalator accident videos by now.
>>4157419holy shit, I kneel
>>4157449what an absolute chad
Here's an interesting fact for this thread: brick fraud goes back to the ancient world. Many ancient civilizations had official brick inspectors who were held liable for accidents caused by low quality brick production. Brickmakers in ancient Rome were required to stamp bricks with seals stating the name of the brackyard and the year of production; if the bricks failed, the brickmakers were held responsible. Anyway, the same fraudulent techniques you see in these videos were being employed thousands of years ago, even if the material and scale is different.
>>4157443An escalator can never break, it can only become stairs.
>>4158340If I remember right, the dude was cleaning that industrial vat. It's used to hold some flammable chemical which I don't remember, and it's emptied before those hatches can be opened. He generated a spark (probably through static electricity) which ignited the flammable gases in the vat. Then the burst of flame exploded out of the vat, and the force of the gas explosion shooting out of the vat was enough that it disintegrating the guy.Ultimately the dude died because chinks have really lax safety controls. The vat shouldn't have been opened until it was flushed with inert gas and even then, he shouldn't have been near the opened vat without grounding equipment.
>>4157419Wasn't this in Aus or am I misremembering?
>>4158003because whitening cream doesn't pass onto the kids
>>4158077Wasn't she pulled out and pretty okay? Could have sworn I saw more of this clip before.
>>4158029not common in aus
>>4157422the cunt on the scooter always gets me
>>4158021get these gooks out of our country. FUCK OFF WE ARE FULL
>>4157428Fuck china just nuke the place already
>>4158294>one way sign>bienv-Not China.
>>4158294In fact, that was meant to be the Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans.
>>4157809IIRC, this was Brazil
>>4158084That disgusting thing at the end somewhat weakened his credibility.
>>4157787>>4158340>>4158385Disintegration to the point of vaporization takes a LOT of power. Most likely he was lodged in the roof/piping overhead. If there was any dismemberment at all, his arm and possibly head would detach from the torso, nothing more.I've seen tank mines strapped to a guy's chest for an execution video and there were still large chunks remaining, including a recognizable torso.
>>4157449its that scene from final destination. holy fuck
>>4157449The two guys on bicycles looking back and pedalling like crazy only for the one on the left to get spiked by the light pole...

>>4158503>>4158508this was posted in another thread and an anon said: 'you can't out-cycle death' and posted a smug anime face. top kek
I saw a video of asians using an eye examination tool which spreads their eyelids and amazed at the wide view.
>>4158029Nice try Chang, no it isn't unless you're a bunch of Mexicans using dollar store measuring tapes working for $5 an hour.
>>4157392>best of Chinabest of china is empty china
>>4158587That seems like a good job, just being paid to chase down tumbleweeds.

>>4158594i'm sure it has downsides, but i also can't seem to think of any>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behemoth_(2015_film)
>>4158570OK chud, you've probably never used a tape measure.
>>4158608Are these houses designed to codes and to hold real people or are they more speculative property investments that crumble apart after a decade?
>>4158640iirc they were built to meet some government housing goals. they will never hold people.
>>4158640I've heard they were built to create dependencies in foreign markets for political reasons. (Specifically, I've heard they were built to capture the steel market; I think China uses something like 40% of the world's steel supply.) I don't know if that's true or not. It could just be good old fashioned corruption; the Chinese government leases all property, so these ghost cities could be a shady as fuck way for the government to generate revenue for itself.
>>4157783Fucking half life country
>>4157809>back to the future
>>4158640I've once heard it say that's it basically the problems of feudal china, today.In the past, governors came from foreign places, didn't give a fuck about the local lifestyle, and just wanted to get as much cash out of the locals as possible.Well it's basically the same thing, but what's profitable today is rezoning farmland to high-density residential areas and getting paid fat stacks by construction companies in order to give them the government contract.Old problems, new style.

>>4158632>chudyou will never be a woman
>>4157659Why do they always have this smug look of "I did nothing wrong, why aren't you fixing this"
>>4158000pretty dangerous since tuna can weigh up to 500 pounds
>>4157692I bought a pair of shears made in china and they snapped like this, now I buy from reputable companies only
>>4158381I don't think the Chinese ever evolved beyond being an ancient civilization. A civilization with such a glorified history full of fantastical stories and culture shouldn't have the quality control of an African nation
>>4158985or just boutique poo leak
>>4159036Your ESL is showing chang
>>4157817Happy Chinese new years :D
>>4158587The best part is that all of those apartments will collapse within 2 years
>>4157665what is he playing?
>>4157419Chinks care about kids? Wow.
>>4158049>>4158114Actually is what a small nuke detonated by the CIA to destroy the largest stock trading super computer.
>>4158640I mean in china that's the same thingbut most of this is cover to explain huge purchases of materials which are actually used for military stuff and the buildings are built with wood, corn, styrafoam, etc
>>4158077That's clearly just a couple planks painted to look like the steel cover.
>>4157804good job on that driver that saw it comin. Saved the lives of the people coming up behind him
Anyone got those ADHD social credit/propaganda combo webms, I keep forgetting to save all the hyper stylized ones.

>>4157419What a MAN holy shit
>>4157404>>4158061Out of all the webms in this thread, these two made me the most anxious
>>4158477>>4158991At some point the inertia of state capital will force you to choose between personal liberty and queer hate. The problem with modern hugbox machines is that they don't have a clear/consistent definition of personal rights, not that they have different opinions about dick. You're welcome for the sponsor-free content btw you ungrateful shit
>>4158382You have obviously never seen enough escalator videos. Those do not become simply stairs on 3rd world fuck up situations.
A lot of these are just bad decisions. Why are they so stupid?
>>4157644I think its Megumin..Also this. https://www.weirdasianews.com/2012/02/24/exploding-coins-burns-chinese-babys-hands/
>>4158880Honestly speaks to the deep inferiority complex and anxiety of the CCP
>>4157445this is probably poetic in some fashion
>>4157684did he okayed?
>>4157724>I heard some Chinese entity was trying to build reusable self landing first stage rockets like spacex. Is that one of them?the giant red cloud of nitrogen dioxide says no.
>>4158592knowing what the chinks do with chemical waste, I don't even want to imagine what's happening with their nuclear waste.

>>4158632"Chuds" are the most common demographic in trades you retarded troon
>>4159791No, that's not true, there have been a bunch of sugar factory and grain elevator explosions, and you had that massive warehouse explosion a year or so after trump was elected.
>>4158315BAP has a pretty good paragraph about them. They're basically the most closest to nature's violent side a human population can get. They expand rapidly then millions of faceless peasants are cut down just as fast. Literally their whole history is nothing but "Guy claims he is Jesus Christ's brother, goes to war with his cousin, 25 million dead"
>>4158953>this disillusioned at life that he can't feel something from seeing a brother cook for his sibling

>>4159947 see >>4159586>>4160001The evolutions of Rome, Russia, Britain, and the US each represent a paradigm shift in the social contract; a key change in the reason people participate in the machinations of the state. The social, economic, and political institutions of the CCP are another new coat of paint over the same underlying philosophy: the Mandate of Heaven that has defined that subcontinent for millennia. The people are subject to the state simply because they always have been.

>>4160604Mexico isnt the West as most consider itThe term "the West" isn't based on geographic position per se, but upon standard of living/European rootsAka America, Canada, Australia, NZ, Western/Northern Europetypically Latin American nations are not considered a part of "The West"basically any first world nation that isn't Japan/Korea/Singapore/etc
>all this threadI'm really amazed at how they can even have a society
>>4160593Their laws are to blame for that, most countries seem to have some kind of "good samritan" laws in effect, but if you lay a hand on someone in china in an attempt to help them in any way, you are locking yourself in to their wellbeing by law in some way, so it's shit like needing to be part of footing medical bills for some stranger or getting your ass sued by the other person after everything is said and done, in fact there has been rackets of little old women acting like they need help crossing streets whom if you attempt to help will immediately get police involved and try to get money out of you.As much as the international community has made fun of america for being "Sue happy", china is pretty much the de-facto hellhole of legal nightmares, and it's only aided in stunting their social experiences, as you can be sure a lot of the times you see people just walking around someone hurt or a corpse, it's definately because no one wants to get involved because their asses will be on the line.
>>4160905https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Samaritan_law#China>On 1 October 2017, China's national Good Samaritan law came into force, Clause 184 in Civil Law General Principles. There was apparently talk of allowing people to be sued if they didn't help too.

>>4160421how the fuck did you interpret that as the joke
>>4160905My policy is to help until authorities arrive and then slip away without identifying myself. This should be standard.
>>4160399>what is joke
>>4160800These safety videos are super informative. You'll never ever need the information they find from the investigation, but still it's fun to learn.
>>4160399Liveleak got bought out and shut down by the jews, fyi. Covid was the breaking point; they were not going to allow unfiltered information to be posted to the public like that. Unedited police bodycams were already fucking up their narrative, but covid was the nail in the coffin.
