    I haven't been to my office in Shenzhen for about a week. This morning when I got here my office door was locked. When I asked my assistant to open it, she asked me, "oh, you want to go in your office?"

    "Sure, of course I do."

    "OK, there may be some flux in there." (Flux is a liquid made of alcohol and acids used for soldering. We make and sell the stuff amongst many other materials.)

    "What?"

    So she opened my office and there was over 1000 liters of flux in here. 1000 effing liters. And also a fan to keep the room cool. Unfortunately the fan was turned off. Later I explained that a fan that's off is not quite as effective as a fan that's on. And maybe next time they may want to consider just using the air conditioner that's in the wall.

    Basically what happened was there was a fire at a neighboring factory last week and the operations manager here became worried that the fire dept. might come around and inspect everyone and find this flux, which we're not exactly licensed to store here. So of course, the most logical solution was to lock it in my office.

    That flux was out of my office within 15 minutes of my arrival.

    Laws in China are extremely detailed and convoluted. But enforced very inconsistently.

    I find it amusing you intended to try and employ logic and reason with a situation that clearly didn't use it.

    Sounds like you had quite a day :cool:

    Every week or so something like this happens. It used to drive me nuts, but now I just laugh.

    Tunescribe = RACIST.

    Put Jew in that sentence and see how others on this forum feel, yet somehow it's okay for you to keep up your racist garbage, just like how you kept bringing up specifically *Hispanic* hooligans at the Chargers game you went to.

    Are you kidding? Tunescribe obviously was making a joke.

    It's funny, just tonight I told my wife that in all my years "here", no one has gone anti-Semite on me. She said there must be all nice people here. I said no, there are some asshooles, but they haven't ever gone "there".

    (Also, I don't mind a good Jew crack. My username itself kinda is anyway.)

    Maverick4 = FOOL.

    You are a humorless knee-jerk PC Nazi. Once again, your zealous ignorance trumps any semblance of reason. "Chinese" is not a "race," it is a nationality, and what I wrote is a J-O-K-E (joke) meant for PatJew in the context of his original post. He just so HAPPENS to be an AMERICAN living in CHINA, a COMMUNIST/SOCIALIST nation populated by CHINESE people. Before you go soak your head, how about a shot at PatJew for combining "Patriots" and "Jew"? Unbelievable.

    Hey leave me out of it :D.

    Well, I guess that answers the question of whether or not Maverick was kidding.

    To Tune's point, though, there really are alot of Chinese people living here. The place is full of them!

    And if I am not mistaken, not everyone living in China is of the same racial/ethnic makeup.

    Sorry you got dragged into Maverick4's hyperventilation, PJ. The boy's a bit high-strung.

    Where is the joke in this sentence, you redneck bigot?

    The joke is on creating a joke out of an Other, which you don't even realize can be racist, and in your case it is. It's not even close to the same thing as patjew making his screen-name in humor.

    Unless you think it's funny to say something similar like "9-11 was done by the Jews, subtle and sneaky they are...."

    har har har...you moron.

    You are correct. The Chinese "race" that we generally think of is called the Han race. They're 92% of the country. There are many other "minority races" (something like 55 of them) dispersed throughout the country as well.

    Here's something else classicly Chinese: you may have seen during the Olympics opening ceremony that they celebrated these minority races by showing a parade of people representing each minority race in their traditional clothing. Well guess what: each of those people were actually Han and just dressed up like a minority race.

    Now tell me the difference between that and someone wearing blackface to represent a black person.

    No problem! :D

    Poor baby. You are so obsessed with crying "racism" you didn't even get the joke. I'll spell it out for your simple mind: The joke is that they (the Chinese folks PatJew works with) were sending PatJew a subtly veiled message by cramming his office full of containers of flux. The "punchline" part here (still with me?) is that by making his job difficult in filling his office space with commodities, he'd get fed up and leave. HOWEVER (and this might be the hardest part for you to grasp, given your apparently limited capabilities of discernment), in order to send this fictional veiled message, they'd have to SNEAK the containers into PatJew's office without his foreknowledge. That way, he'd be SURPRISED at seeing them there when he opened his office door. Now do you get it, racism boy?

    If you want to see moron, look in the mirror.

    Certainly it's no different than Blackface but how is this 'classicly Chinese', you bigot?

    Next time I see another high profile Jew get caught on Wall Street I'll be sure to comment on how it is so classicly Jewish to cheat and steal, and see if you think that is not offensive.
