Blows to the head can cause concussion and head injuries are thought to raise the chances of dementia, parkinsons, alzeimers etc. Brain damage is permanent - I used to work with for a charity helping adults who had suffered brain injuries. Great cause and probably great entertainment, but I suggest that the money could be raised in a more ethical way.

Shaolin Temple, in the region of Songshan Mountain, Dengfeng City, Henan Province, is reputed to be 'the Number One Temple under Heaven'. Shaolin Temple history can date back to Northern Wei Dynasty (386 - 534), and it played an important role on the development of the Buddhism in China. Included on UNESCO's World Cultural & Natural Heritage List in 2010, it is the cradle of the Chinese Zen Buddhism and the Shaolin Martial Arts such as Shaolin Cudgel.

Visited yesterday. The atmosphere was a little frosty towards foreigners after covid. But still some lovely people there. Sadly the figures guarding the monk's tomb were stolen two years ago. One of the tombs was prised open so I presume both were looted. It's the furthest site to walk to from the town as well so maybe not worth it :(

Some dogs have a reputation for being yappy. Some breeds are know to bite people. Some breeds have been documented as killing people, some breeds more than others. I once heard of a chihuauhau killing rottwieler, it stuck in his throat.

Well according to my chinese friends the bans didn't work and everyone still has these large dogs so my point stands. There are bad breeders all over the world, doesn't mean breed bans are effective ways of preventing there from being dangerous dogs due to poor training. Btw, almost any dog that has bad training can be retrained to be good. But whatever, my opinion doesn't even matter anyways. China does as China does and rightly so.
