    mostly Shanghai, sometimes northern California
    Wonder if they'll do a 2013 California DMV registration sticker for my KLR...

    Don't laugh. They probably already are!

    Brazen bastards, I'll say that much.

    Order me some Florida registration decals for 2013 while you are at it.
    I would order some of the Chinese tags and DLs if it wasn't such a pain.

    not only plates... microchips as well.... i was looking to upgrade my pc then i saw the intel i7 5960x.... clearly it stated in the box and the markings on the chip but the box says 4 core - 8 way... WHEN THE 5960x is 8 core - 16 way threads..... you buy it you suddenly lose 4 cores and about 5k yuan... and its not gonna be compatible to boards you will buy... the fuck is wrong with this country...

    ^ don't believe anything you see or read on Taobao period, much less any local website. Just because there's a photo or ten on an advert posted up on Taobao or Alibaba, don't mean it exists or is real... BS is PRC locals best friend followed by PS which is a very very close second...
    Therein lay the lesson for today...

    Remember my mantra,
    "Everything is just for looking, for nothing is as it seems, beAware the smoke and mirrors"

    What really is that elusive concept referred to as reality, given that we all see things differently from within a subjective perspective and framework.
