We're not sure why there's a naked foreigner -- a student, says People's Daily -- in the middle of a road in Haikou, Hainan province, but here he is, all sunglasses and sandals (Crocs?), minding his business.
I'm going to leave this here and back away, because I don't even --
The body of woman, who was beheaded by a man on Friday morning, June 28, 2013 outside a supermarket in Sanya, south China's Hainan Province, is seen lying on the ground. The attacker has been held by police, while the victim has not been identified.
Look at these douchenozzles.
A dolphin was found stranded in a swimming zone of Dadong Sea in Sanya, Hainan province on June 16, and while waiting for animal rescues to arrive, a few swimmers decided to lug the poor creature out of the water for photos.
Surely at some point we've all encountered street racers or speeding motorcyclists in China, usually young people with too much money and too much time. And how many of us have been able to suppress the thought, I really hope they get into trouble. Death? No, not that. But trouble -- a hefty fine, a 12-point driver's license deduction, a single-vehicle wreck...
On April 19, 2012, a 41-year-old woman in Haikou, Hainan province was picking up her child when a 42-year-old shop owner confronted her because her bike was blocking his store. What happened next, one would never wish on his worst enemy:
These are the worst type of stories. The. Worst. What we have is a foreigner (laowai) and Chinese person arguing at Sanya Airport in Hainan province. (What is it with Sanya? We saw another foreigner and Chinese person tussle earlier.) The foreigner, wearing a fannypack, accuses the Chinese of cursing and "beating" him. The Chinese guy, presumably the one filming, posts this nationalistic tripe on Youku (a video that's been viewed 225,000 times in the last 11 hours):
What happens when you're a pickpocket and you get caught? Other than the loss of face, you're liable to get the snot kicked out of you.
In Sanya, Hainan province recently, that's not what happened.
Our analysis of this tenement precinct found in Lingshui county, Hainan province begins with the seminal modernist architect Louis Sullivan's famous phrase "form follows function." Buildings should be designed with their purpose in mind, and so it is philosophically laid out here, in this neighborhood, that the purpose of all human life is to sprout like a blade of grass out of red dirt, sway in the wind, and die. All joy is subsumed by the reality of existing. Not one wasted word is spent. You are because you are. Accept it, for residents of Dadun Village are all engaged in the process of death or already dead.
Earlier this month in Hainan province, this group beating. What happened?
"Chengguan beating people, I tell ya," cries Ms. Gao, a shop owner. "A gang of chengguan came and beat us."
Chinese pundit Sima Nan, known for, among other things, spewing anti-America rhetoric despite having no qualms about visiting America and getting his head stuck in a Dulles Airport escalator, was giving a lecture at Hainan University yesterday when he ran into a proverbial buzz saw A student took the microphone, stood up, and began coolly rebuking the man on stage, who grew increasingly agitated as it became clear that many of the cheering students in the auditorium weren't on his side. At the 2:30 mark, the student hurls his shoe onto the stage -- a good 20-yard throw, it seems -- drawing more applause.
Nude beaches are pretty uncommon in China, if only for the fact that beaches here are always packed with people, most of whom, surely, have no desire to see any choads. But a tourist in Sanya, Hainan province (the "Hawaii of the East"), Tian Ma, recently found himself looking in at a nudist resort -- a cleverly disguised one -- and thought what anyone would think: picture time! He stealthily took the images above and after the jump and posted them on his blog, Tian Ma Topics.
