These Chinese businesses have some very awkward, embarrassing, and outrageously funny names. Either they have no feel for the English language or they simply don’t care. The names that they have chosen for their businesses are hilarious.

You should be careful when you buy a hard drive that is made in China. There is a real possibility that you may get a 128MB flash drive rather than the 500GB hard drive that it is supposed to be. The Chinese are very ingenious when it comes to making a fake hard drive look like the real thing.

Could you survive on 49 cents a day? If you lived in China and earned 49 cents per day, you’d have no alternative but to stretch those cents as far as they could go. Photographer Stefen Chow started a project called “The Poverty Line – China” which shows what the Chinese living below the poverty line can afford with the daily wage. One picture - one day.

They could find a "peaceful arrangement” with all of the residents of the building except for one family who didn’t want to go. The developer tried everything to evict them but in vain. Then the cruel harsh measures were taken to make this family give up eventually…

Almost 1/3 of China is sinking in garbage. Local recycling plants can process only 50% of the domestic garbage. Ecology of many cities is under threat, because the mountains of trash grow by 4.8% per year. And if this situation doesn’t change in the nearest future, all Chinese landfills will disappear under the trash by 2015.

Cosplay is a Japanese type of representation when people dress in hand-made or well designed costumes of different characters. As a rule, these are heroes of various Japanese and East Asian comics and print cartoons, graphic novels, video games and fantasy movies. Cosplays have reached China, and today more and more young people join this movement in order to stand out from the crowd and look different. Of course, these cosplays look a bit clumsy, but for the beginners such costumes are not bad at all.

This is a real Easter egg house. It was built by a Chinese designer named Daihai Fei, who has lived the house for two months. He lived in the mobile home in Beijing, China because he only had a budget of $960/month which wouldn’t allow him to rent a conventional apartment. The mobile home has a small bookshelf, a lamp that is powered by a small solar panel, a small sink, and a bed. The egg house is made on a bamboo frame that is covered with insulating material.

Ha Wenjin is a real animal lover. This Chinese woman has quit her job, sold her house, vehicle and jewelry to take care of over 1,500 stray dogs and 200 cats.

At first she had just a few animals that she took care of in her free time. But as the number of her pets was growing, she gave up her career and devoted her entire day tending to dogs and cats. Soon she had created a real animal shelter, and had to find 10 people to look after the dogs and 2 people to take care of her cats. Many volunteers donate food to these dogs and cats that were forced to move to a new home, because government officials of China decided to reclaim the land where the shelter was built on.

Today Ha Wenjin and her pets live in Houyu village. Even though it is expensive and difficult to keep a shelter open, this woman has no intention of giving up in her desire to save as many stray dogs and cats as possible.

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.
