In China, a cheap form of advertising like writing on the walls and pedestrian crossings is very popular. So plumbers, tailors and other craftsmen involved in handicraft leave their phone numbers and addresses this way. But this kind of advertising is banned, therefore the police have to deal with it. So all of these self-entrepreneurs have already experienced the hard way that it’s better not to mess with the Chinese police..
You should see this 3-year-old boy. He is so young, and so super-sized that some nurseries ban him for being a "health hazard" to other children. While most average kids of this age are only about two stone, Xiao Hao’s weight is 5 times heavier. According to some medics, this child might have a growth hormone disorder. Other people believe he is just a victim of China's "Little Emperor" syndrome as parents in this country are allowed only one child. And their relatives spoil rotten babies.
This time these users are from Chinese social networks. But all of them have one thing in common with users from other countries – amusing and unique photos.

Today you will see Chinese factory producing fake automobile parts, and you will also get a chance to glance at how residents of the Philippines make forbidden and counterfeit weapons themselves.

These hairstyles were banned in the schools in China. Teenagers can’t have a hairstyle other than one that is shown in the first photo. It’s not that the banned hairstyles are all that pretty, but what can be so bad about a hairstyle that would make the government get involved?
Different countries use different methods to tear down a house. People in China probably use the most extraordinary and surprising method of house demolition.

At 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) outside, most of us would probably dream about going to the beach. Not if you live in China. With the population of over 1 billion people, the beach here gets too overcrowded on sunny days. It is too crazy!
This boy is amazing! Those of you who changed a car wheel before would know that even this job is not that easy. It requires skills and patience.
After a car accident that happened when she was only 7 years old, Xiao Fang’s legs were severely damaged. They twisted the wrong way round, and the girl couldn’t live normally for 15 years. When Miss Fang turned 22, she underwent a corrective surgery that was successful. Xiao’s legs were straightened out, and now Chinese girl says she should be able to walk and stand normally again when the bones heal completely.
It seems to me that not only goods, but also roads can be “made in China”. This collection of pictures shows the road in Zhengzhou (central Chinas Henan Province) that paralyzed city traffic after geotextile entangled in a bus’ tire. This road doesn’t look like a high-standard all-season one now.
China’s shores look like parks now. There are so many seaweeds in the water that you can see only tons of green plants.
That’s how this woman charges everyone who drives on this road in China.
And if you don’t pay, then it’d be very difficult to drive, moreover, your car can get damaged.
The human landscapes of rice cultivation in terraces that follow the natural contours of the escarpments like contour plowing are just amazing. It shows that people’s work together with nature can give some very beautiful results.
Such terraces are a classical feature of the island of Bali, the Banaue Rice Terraces in Benguet, Philippines, and the rice terraced mountains in China.
A fissure has formed on the ground in one Chinese city and the most surprising thing is some sort of foam started to coming out from there. For now, no one knows what this is.
A guy in Russia ordered a car DVR on one Chinese site and used EMS, China Courier Service. That’s what he got as a parcel.
This is Yang Youde, a farmer who lives on the outskirts of Wuhan city. Since February 2010, he was attacked by several eviction teams as he rejected a sum of $19,030 for his land. Property developers, who want to build department buildings on his land, didn’t want to pay him the sum he asked which is five times more than what they offered.
After eviction teams tried to eject him from his house, he built a canon from a wheelbarrow and pipes. He makes ammunition from locally sold fireworks. The rockets can reach over 100 metres, and explode with a deafening bang. Little is known if anyone was injured til now.
In May he held off 100 people by firing from a makeshift watchtower.
Way to go man!
China, the most populated country in the world, continues to absorb Western culture. The chains of American fast-food restaurants pop up like mushrooms after the rain, American supermarkets and bars are opened, more American music, products and brands are sold. And after the Olympics of 2008 that took place in China, more and more students have started actively learning English language. So, it is safe to say that China is undergoing Americanization.
Take a look at the pictures.
Well, it is easy. They do the markings themselves :)
Beijing, the capital of China, is a very busy city and it is almost impossible to find a spot to park. So people are bringing some king of handmade “carpets” that match the color of the road with parking markings and then they put a fake parking sign and voila.
The police say they can only arrest these people if they catch them red-handed, otherwise they don’t touch them.
