China Quality HSR “Built From Rubbish”

china-quality-hsr-crumbling (1)

The latest less than reassuring scenes to emerge from China’s burgeoning rail network show sections of newly completed high-speed track already crumbling, and understandably once again have many worried about its safety – not least because it is apparently not regarded as a serious problem.

Fortunately the dissolving sections of foundations are only “protective layers” and apparently do not mean the whole structure is in imminent danger of collapse, though the public and local media do not seem overly reassured all the same…

    China lack of respect for thier own country is always disappointing, you would think by now they would learnt from ther mistakes, from previous mishaps. Its funny that this was the same country that buit the great wall of China.

    That's what amazes me most about it all... If China just exported shit products to other countries and kept the good stuff for themselves, it'd be sneaky and dishonest, but rational. Instead it seems that shady fly by night operations are so rampant throughout the country, even the government can't escape getting burned by it. It's every man for himself, at least looking in from the outside at them.

    Considering the Great Wall was partially built out of the corpses of their own countrymen, this could be seen as a step up.

    The great wall needed constant repair to stay in shape. There are sections that already fell into mounts of dirt due to not being repaired for the past few centuries.

    Blame the great leap forwards for the China of today being so messed up.

    I know I may sound like trying to blame the Chinese Communist party every damn time when we see this sort of news but the fact is that all those old bridges and buildings that are still standing were built during the time when the Nationalist was in power. I don't think it is fair to say Chinese lack of respect of their own country. It is the fact that deep down inside most people don't respect their own country as long as the communist is still in power and they don't have the power to overthrow the government or just too brain washed to see the corruptions that are gradually consuming the entire country under the ostensible glory that the Communist want the world and their own people to believe. In the end of the day, people around the world will see all Chinese as a whole are sloppy people that cant even build decent things on their own despite the resource and knowledge they have. It is also no making sense that why on earth there are great scientist and engineers plus that amount of resources ends up with shitty infrastructure. We all know something doesn't add up and it must be corruption.

    They're doing everything they can to kill it's over population. Just not in the extermination way.

    Architecturally, the blocks circling around the supports are indeed protective layers, meant to prevent erosion of the weight bearing columns in what appears to be a currently dry river.

    That said, they're obvious not serving their purpose if they're made of rubbish. The thing won't collapse now, but might in a few decades.

    Hard to say, depends on how often the river floods. If it stays dry, there's no erosion.

    Isn't that the truth. A country that brought us things like birth control medicine, (water?) clocks, and exported written words to various other countries... now exports lead and cadmium-coated toys, exploding electronics, heavy metal rice, dodgy knockoffs and anything else of dubious quality and content. Rapid and ruthless industrialization has not been kind to them.

    Foxconn is Taiwanese, and Apple is American. They make things cheaply in Shenzhen, but it's not that Chinese CAN'T make good products - you just have to watch the process very carefully and stay in control so no one stiffs you with substandard parts and the like.

    Nope. Modern Chinese is derived from the Oracle Bone Script, found at Chinese archaeological sites from 14th century BC.

    This is why China 'steals' everything from outsiders. They haven't got a creative or caring bone left in their race. It's why communism suits them so well, -> You make, we steal... Typical of psychopaths, if it looks like the real thing, 'it is the real thing.'. They don't give a rats ass about who lives and dies. Amazing to note that the Chinese continent is so wealthy from stealing 'Western and Asian' technology that they won't lift a finger to ensure the country becomes 'healthier'.

    We dont even need to read these anymore, if there are pictures of rubble, a dead body, colored rivers, or a bunch of trash, then you should automatically know it's about China.
