Interesting food, largely untainted or changed by the influence of Westerners? - Check
Innovative and effective transport systems (they have a train that goes up into the Tibetan plain, whilst in England we have...erm...trains that don't run when its rainy. Don't know what trains are like in the US. Also in Shanghai there is the worlds only mag-lev train that can reach up to incredible speeds and runs efficiently and smoothly.) - Check
Businesses whose employees are genuinely interested in customer service (I know this from experience. People are friendly over there.) - Check (far more so than in America - again, I know this from experience)
Astonishing rates of production, construction and economic increase - Check. (China is building itself up at a ridiculous rate. Their dedication and work ethic is something for anyone who values such things to envy.)
Plus they have a kick ass new stadium.
There's plenty wrong with China: I disagree with totalitarian regimes, as a principle I think its wrong. I disagree totally with their oppression of Tibet, a country I have also visited so I'm well equipped to make such comments.
Have you been to China my yankee friend? Have you ever even set foot outside the US?
So... you mention Chinese food that has been "untainted or changed" by Westerners. What other country doesnt offer this? You can get any countries "authentic" food just by going there. Or, if you have the cash you can get Authentic food from almost any country in the world in a span of 30 blocks here in the Capital of the world, nYc.
Oh, they have trains. Special ones that look pretty or go super fast! Wow. Almost every state (if not every) has its own subway and transportation system. I can't believe you even brought up freaking trains...
Business men who bow and are totally 'nice' to you. $$$$$$$ No shit. So the Chinese are a little more respectful and like to bow their heads and shit. I don't need that crap to enjoy whatever it is I'm buying. If I want to feel like some special king and have people act just as $nice$, I'll go to a strip club. Same shit in terms of business.
Astonishing rates of production at "insert this amount of white rice" an hour.
Oh and no. I've never been to China. Nothing draws me to it really aside maybe seeing the great wall. Or hanging in the seedy parts to see how crazy it gets.
That and, we all know that Chinese chicks "love you long time" :>
And one more point... I havent seen any Americans trying to sneak out of this country under a fucking fish boat. Yeah, things are really spiffy out there I bet. I really can't wait to go. Really.
