One of the things I love about China is that they set high goals, as in 鈥淟et鈥檚 build a wall around the entire country鈥? and more recently 鈥淟et鈥檚 have Internet access but without the part where people can access the Internet.鈥?If you know the history of the Great Wall, it was highly successful in keeping out animals. But invading armies just bribed the guards and walked through the gate. I鈥檓 guessing that your smarter animals, say porpoises, could have found a way in also. But porpoises had no interest in conquering China, so we鈥檒l never know. Something tells me that blocking all the unacceptable content on the Internet will be about as effective as the Great Wall.
The Chinese citizens are missing a lot of good stuff. Most of my favorite web sites would blind a Chinese potato farmer. I just Googled the word 鈥渟ex鈥? and got 243,000,000 results. In China, you鈥檇 only get one result, and it would be a septuagenarian demonstrating how to apply a condom to the handle of a shovel. (via)
