Maglevs ought to be REAL fun to watch as they sail over the edge of a

I wouldn't trust Chinese infrastructure too far.
Like the USSR, they tend to build to IMPRESS.
If it all falls apart in a few years, well, there
won't be any reports.

I watch some of those shows about abandoned projects.
Have you SEEN the fate of USSR constructions ? Even
in 20 years the concrete is disintegrating - it's
even worse than US seaside condos. The structures
only had to look great long enough for foreign news
agencies to print a picture. After that ...

Oh, and TRY to sue Putin when your apartment building
implodes. Most likely you'll accidently come into contact
with some nerve-gas agent ....

Oh, and did China warn the subway riders/workers
in Hunan the other day ? Shit NO. They drowned in
the floods. Plenty more where they came from ...
