Gardening Woes

Removing all the earthworms prior to tilling can be a challenge. We eventually had to use a come-along to extract this big fellow.

Sleepwalking Can Be Dangerous

Sleepwalking can be hazardous to you health under the best of circumstances, but especially if you're a member of the Chinese family holding out against developers in Chongqing, central China. (Rumor has it that the family has connections high in the Chinese government.) via Say No To Crack

What Am I Bid for a Fighter Jet?

A fighter jet and a surface-to-air missile were put up for sale on the Chinese equivalent of eBay.

The Jian-5 fighter jet and Red-flag-2 missile were listed on, China's biggest online auction site. The seller claimed they were from his private collection and that he had the right to sell them.

The East Day News says the weapons were later deleted from the auction website.



New Wife For Old

A Chinese man has persuaded his new wife to have plastic surgery to make her look like his first wife.

Zhao Gang, 32, from Chongqing city, lost his first wife Lu in a car smash three years ago. About six months ago, under pressure from his parents, Zhao Gang got married to his new wife, Cai.

"I got married only because she looks a bit like her and I want to have a chance to make up for my mistakes," says Zhao.

Cai agreed to plastic surgery, after a lot of persuading.

Last Meal???

It could be.

Begin with an appetizer of five McDonald's Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strips. (630 calories, 11 grams of saturated fat) Follow up with a Burger King Quad Stacker. There are 1,000 calories and 30 grams of bad fat in this combination of 4 hamburger patties, 4 slices of cheese, 8 strips of bacon, plus sauce and a bun. Wash everything down with a Starbucks Venti (20 oz.) Caffè Mocha with whipped cream at only 490 calories and 16 grams of saturated fat. And for desert? Waddle on down to the Häagen-Dazs store for a Mint Chip Dazzler. Those three scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, Oreos, chocolate sprinkles, and whipped cream will only add 1,270 calories and 38 grams of saturated fat to your daily intake.

Delicious!!! And don't worry about those 3,390 calories and 95 grams of saturated fat. You can spend and extra five minutes on the treadmill tomorrow.
