…with a microphone. No wonder I know nothing about Lithuania, they’re too busy getting freaky anything close to them.

You may not expect this, but the richest person in China is a female. Yang Huiyan, is only 26, and has inherited 7.4 billion. Her father, Yeung Kwok Keung, owned Country Garden Holdings Co, which he sold last April in the Hong Kong Stock exchange. Garden Holdings is a real estate investment group that focuses on building townhouses and villas in China. If you ever go to China ask how much the average townhouses cost there. They are so expensive that the majority of the population cannot live there, Chinese constructors build houses for the wealthy affluent foreigners.
Basically, Keung buys cheap land and builds villas with cheap labor. He then sells them for extremely high prices, because foreigners can buy them. That’s how to get rich in China, or any developing country. All you need is connections and kick the poor people out to build on their land.
Chinese hustling Chinese.

I came across the worst campaign for conflict in Darfur today; “Hold your breath for Darfur”. I’m not sure why people think that doing things like this will prove a point. “Look at that guy, he’s holding his breath. I’m going to join whatever he’s campaign for, because it seems he’s really dedicated.” I don’t see how this campaign can ever provoke any action that’ll help the cause; hows holding your breath going to stop the genocide in Darfur. Additionally, which politician is going to sympathize with the idiots that hold their breath?
I’m tired of all these Facebook groups and websites dedicated to doing unrelated things for a cause. Obviously this campaign was so ridiculous, that the site hasn’t been updated since 2006.
How about we make a Hold your breath for people who have asthma campaign. Or maybe Jumping Jacks for Jesus day.

If I had sold Tibetan merchandise in San Francisco, London, or Paris, I would be extremely rich. It seems everybody and their mothers came out to support Tibet and the “human rights” issue. Below is a video that shows how informed these people really are.
If you can’t find Tibet on a map, why are you protesting? If you say for “human rights”, I’m going to ask where you find your sources; watching Seven Years in Tibet isn’t enough to call yourself an expert on Tibet. The only reason these people are protesting is because of the publicity the media is giving them. For all you Tibet supporters, why didn’t ya’ll feel so strongly Tibet last year? There are so many other issues today that the world should focus their attention on. For instance, the fighting in Somalia, Darfur, or the food crisis in Senegal, all have more precedence than human rights in Tibet; yet, human rights in Tibet seems to be the most worthy of the protesters’ voice.
Here is a website that is campaigning for Tibet. If you look at the human rights section you see it’s a little over 200 words. Talk about Information overload on an issue those Tibet supports feel so adamantly about.
In conclusion, it’s really sad that these Tibetan protesters are trying to ruin China’s image. Rather than focusing on a more serious problem, they’re going all out to stop the Olympics for an issue they don’t know much about. They make it seem like Tibet is the new concentration camp that China built to suppress the Tibetans.
Team Tibet is really putting on some show.
