All The Weird Things That Exists In China


Communist China is biggest country in the world with a population of approximately 1.4 billion people in China proper alone; this does not include countries and territories that they have invaded and claimed under the Chinese flag, such as Tibet. Since the United states lifted the embargo on Communist China in 1971 under President Nixon who decided to end the 21‐year embargo on trade with China, it has become one of the greatest countries in very short time leaving all the world fascinated by their culture and advancement in technology.

China has taken advantage of the COVID pandemic that came out of Wuhan, China which economically collapsed the rest of the world to catapult its economy ahead and far surpass its projected growth. With the social upheaval in the western world where American politicians and its citizens are fighting over social justice issues, China is building its nation to take over United State’s position as a Super Power. No doubt China Will Be The World’s Next Super Power. China’s rise can be termed as the result of the country’s exceptional and bizarre traditions which separates them from any other country of the world. What makes them so extraordinarily different? We are here to show you that! Click on the next slide to see these exceptional facts and bizarre qualities of the Chinese people.


Summer? Let’s Eat Dogs

Yulin, a major city of China, is famous for its people eating dogs. Yes, you heard that right… the Chinese has a tradition of eating man’s best friend. To the western world and even parts of the eastern world, this is the most outrageous act to the human race’s favorite companion. Yet in the name of good fortune in their lives, the people of Yulin believed that at the end of every winter, they have to torture and slaughter approximately 15,000 dogs for their Yulin Lychee and Dog Meat Festival.

So according to a report from a renowned business magazine, around 10 million dogs are torture and killed each year to satisfied the growing consumption of dogs in China. Sadly, China is not the only country in Asia that consume dogs but they are by far the largest of all Asian countries. Due to the Wuhan Virus (COVID) pandemic, there are now certain cities, such as Shenzhen who have banned the killing and consumption of dogs.

Here’s another weird fact from China. Bats Brings You Fortune. It is a popular belief in China that bats are a sign of good luck. The belief stems from hundreds of years of Chinese folklore and legends. No wonder at the onset of the COVID pandemic, it was believed that the COVID novel virus came from bats. Little did we know that the COVID virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology; funded by no other than Dr. Fauci from National Institute of Health, and the COVID virus made its way to the wet market which was located right next to the research building. Hopefully bats now have lost it’s status and good fortune after this.


Eating Eggs Boiled in Boys’ Urine

Like the Japanese, Chinese too has this time honor tradition of eating boiled eggs in virgin young (usually the urine is collected from boys younger than the age of 10) boys’ urine, and consider this tradition as a symbol of health. In China, but specifically to the Donyang province, the Chinese believed that eating urine boiled eggs increase immunity and ease blood flow throughout the body. This tradition dates back for centuries and is still practiced to this day. Today, the market price for a boiled egg in virgin boy’s urine is about twenty-four cent (USD).


A “Facebook” For Those Who Had or Aspire to Have Plastic Surgery

There is no legitimate access to Facebook in China since 2009. When it was found that the rebellions in Urumqi were using Facebook to communicate, the government under the leadership of Hu Jintao banned the social networking site. Now, Facebook is considered as a threat in the Communist country.

China has one designated social network for plastic surgeries, named as “So Young”. In this network, the people who have gone through plastic surgeries provide useful advice from their experience. They talk about the necessary requirements of plastic surgery with the people who are going for this procedure and share their reviews about the best clinics in China.


Cosmetics Must Be Tested First On Animals

China has a law that states that any cosmetic product has to first be test on animals and only then is the product allowed to be sold in China. This test has to be taken by all the products including famous imported products. For this reason, brand name around the world will have a separate animal testing product facility to test their products on animals so that they can be sold in in the Chinese marketplace.

These are the top international beauty companies that do animal testing for ALL their products in order to sell in China:

  • Lancôme
  • L’Oréal Paris
  • Estée Lauder
  • Olay
  • Maybelline New York
  • SK-II
  • Innisfree

Traffic

With so many people in China, Traffic is an issue. China hold the longest traffic jam in history. Back in August 10, 2010, there was a traffic jam in Beijing that lasted for twelve days and stretched sixty-two miles long. Talk about being stuck in traffic.

Another random weird thing about China is that due to a increase of walking while texting accidents in China, in September of 2014, the City of Chongqing municipality installed the “first mobile phone sidewalk in China.” This was to increase safety for pedestrians specifically in the touristic area of the city.
