Random thoughts on life in Liuzhou, Guangxi, China

There’s guns across the river aimin’ at ya

According to the local rag, so it must be true, 23 replica guns were confiscated from a toy shop in Liuzhou. Like most toy shops in China, it is right beside a school. This is the second such shop this year to be investigated for selling illegal replica guns. I also remember similar tales from before.

What I want to know is where to buy the real ones. Two of my neighbours are “decorating” their houses simultaneously. Of course ‘decorating’ in China does not mean slapping on some paint or hanging up some wallpaper (do they have wallpaper in China?) It means knocking down walls, hammering and drilling from dawn till dusk. Shouting is also required, as is dropping garbage all down the stairwell. Filthy pigs. Need shooting!

    My neighbours in the hotel I’m staying at right now spent 2 or 3 hours late last night bathing a hippopotamus ( or trying to drown it ) which also involved lots of celebratory shouting .. Maybe it’s one of the many Chinese festivals ? Management here in Shanghai were uninterested , so , after you with the weaponry please…

    Put superglue in their door locks at night when the ‘builders’ are asleep. That’ll fuck ’em.

    Don’t be ridiculous. They are smashing everything in the premises. They won’t hesitate to smash the door down.

    What I really need is a couple of hand grenades.
