    We're much smarter than United Airlines.
    We know that it's bad PR to have cops beat the crap out of paying customers instead of paying them to get bumped.

    Our slogan.....
    Pay to bump'm.....no cops to thump'm.

    My mother-in-law (from China) use to build fences around her garden with chicken wire and branches. It looked incredibly flimsy and not at all pretty.... then the day came that I had to take it down.....now I think that she may have been building a chicken wire fortification.... that was hard to take apart

    I thought your motto was "Pay to bump'm off...no witnesses"

    I know a little (Beijing hua), but opportunities to use are few, so I've forgotten much.

    I'd expect chicken wire & sticks to be a formidable fence.

    Trivia....
    One of the worst things a train can hit is a shopping cart.
    All those wires get stuck in everything.

    Chances are that your computer, cell phone, tv, the lighting in your house, most of your white goods, the electrical equipment in your car, brake monitoring etc are made in china or if not fully then critical components and circuits will be made in china.

    True some of their stuff is not fit to recycle but the majority is world class stuff.

    I'd have no problem flying in a chinese made plane just like i had no problem flying a russian made plane. Id have no problem flying in any plane that had passed international safety standards

    I saw "foreign", but the rest was too inscrutable.
    I never knew much.
    And I've forgotten that.

    As opposed to what? Trump University?

    If there weren't so many people in the USA who believe things like "Get a 500 piece tool set directly from the manufacturer for only 59.99! First 50 customers get a free locking tool box on wheels!" the Chinese wouldn't profitably sell cargo ships loaded with the stuff.

    Usonians are accustomed to buying based on price and assuming the government makes sure that the products are as advertised.

    Well, it's well known that I'm both a racist and a misogynist.
    (I often state so on my profile. It saves SJWs the trouble.)
    So it's like accusing me of being an atheist or capitalist, ie,
    stating the obvious & undisputed doesn't advance your argument.

    I am not worried about advancing my argument, I am just here to bug you. The truth is my uncle is Groundskeeper Seamus.

    Again, I don't say they're incapable of quality work...
    ....only that low quality & fraudulent goods are rampant.
    As I & another poster (including a link) have noted,
    achieving quality there is difficult, & often foreign components
    are just assembled there....an easier way to achieve it.
