Check the TongDe Mall electronics stores on the higher floors. I vaguely recall seeing the electric powered skateboards, hover boards, etc.

You've been hacked. Do you REALLY think Gokm staff have lots of free time and personal invective incentive to personally persecute you?

Suggest you hibernate the next few days while you do a massive wipe and recovery of your computing devices...most probably your PC.

if it's just battery replacement - you can buy both batteries and wrenches online from tabao et al. Just make sure you blow out any humidified air before you reassemble. You can buy dry nitrogen canisters online (they also use them at computer repair stores) or in a lurch - just use a hairdryer...

In some cases, government officials and departments get government funds as grants, loans, copay/cost share agreements, then either can't or won't spend the funds - so they try to "sit on them" until they utilize them favorably. We can't actually judge them to be wrong, lazy, or irresponsible - as we don't really understand why they couldn't spend the funds.

Regardless - discovering funds that were allocated and then perhaps "moved around" to make it look as though they're being utilized but are in reality merely funding "other" things - is an illegal and fraudulent practice in other developed that may not currently be illegal in China.

The Chinese internet may have lit up - but the fact still remains - what he said is probably true - otherwise we'd have seen a mass exodus from WeChat, Alipay, and Baidu.

As for the government ranking systems - it's a social engineering experiment designed to test cultural and behavioral engineering on a grand scale. Don't like it - go offline and off-grid and start prepping a la US preppers (prepare - preparing for the breakdown and implosion of government and society - bunkers, arms, supplies, self sufficient compounds etc.



Chicken Caesar Salad - excellent. smoking inside. Will try the bread and breakfasts next.


Love this place - great food, great cappuccinos, great service, great location, and on a good day like today - green lake was a ghost town - peaceful, quiet, almost like a private garden courtyard. I'll secretly have my wife spread my ashes here when I die.
