Strange Sign, Surprising Result

Xiamen University students recently made a survey at a cross road near the university campus, a section where a pedestrian walking bridge was built over a busy intersection.

The test was to see how people reacted towards different types of notice board. They designed 3 notice boards with different content,  displaying them in turn for few days, and in between there would be some days with no notice board at all.

 

The results below show how many people still crossed the road, not choosing to use the walking bridge despite the signs:

 

No notice board 69.78%
"Please use walking bridge" 70.02%
"It only takes 9.4 seconds more to use the walking bridge" 60.97%
"You ugly if you cross the road" 41.12%

China Uncensored   

When film producer Chris Meledandri created the comedy "Despicable Me 2", he did not expect it to be blocked by the Chinese censors, but it was, 3 years ago. Why? Only the Chinese people know: the main character, the super villain Gru, bears a striking resemblance to the former communist regime leader, Jiang Zemin.

But now, only days after the news that Zhou Yongkang was arrested, Zhou being the main "hit man" in the Jiang Zemin faction of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the film is to be released in cinemas in China on 10th January 2014.

The sound actor for the super villain Gru, is Deng Chao, an experienced voice character actor. Deng expressed his excitement at the news of the film's release: "the little yellow man in the film made such a deep impression. I am sure everyone will have a fun time in the new year."

An independent commentator Xing Tianhang says: "Beside the image of the character in the film being associated with the former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, the title, 'Despicable Me', is just right to the point when related to Jiang. It was not allowed to be broadcast in China previously. But the communist regime has allowed it to be aired in China at this moment. This may indicate that the Jiang faction at the top of Chinese communist regime has become a thing of the past. Furthermore, the news that the film is to be aired in January 2014, was released through the Communist Propaganda Bureau, which could also mean that Zhou Yongkang has no influence on this Bureau any more, and that the next target for the present regime may be Jiang Zemin.
