China exists in a kind of Twilight Zone where it has an outward resemblence to a normal society, but clearly it is not.
On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country. To obey the scout laws, to help other people at all times, and to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
Still stuck in my head from 40 years ago! God Bless the Scouts!
I predict the Olympics and the Democrat National Convention will combine to create “The Perfect Storm”.
I am kind of surprised baseball is not huge in China.

Within minutes of posting my "suggestions" my Zone Alarm software began detecting port scans at a rate of one every few minutes. Normally I would get one every few hours. At that time Zone Labs had a free feature allowing you to trace the source of a port scan. Usually they came from some U.S. university or a U.S. based communications company. But the flood of port scans I got while posting about China all traced back to ISPs in SE Asia. Many in Taiwan and many in Hong Kong and other mainland China cities.
If you post on the internet on the subject of China or Tibet your computer will be probed by the PRC.
