New recruit joins Terracotta Army

#1
A German art student briefly fooled police by posing as one of China's terracotta warriors at the heritage site in the ancient capital, Xian.
Pablo Wendel, made up like an ancient warrior, jumped into a pit showcasing the 2,200-year-old pottery soldiers and stood motionless for several minutes.

The 26-year-old was eventually spotted by police and removed from the scene.

As Mr Wendel's "performance art" did not harm any of the ancient relics, he was not arrested or charged but given "serious criticism", the reports said.

Lol @ 'serious crtiticism' from the Chinese old Bill. "Nein, nein nicht der face'

This thread would've been much funnier if it had been titled 'New Recruit Joins TA', fooling people into thinking you meant Territorial army.

Then we could all have laughed.

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHA.

See? Funny...

I'll get my coat.

Amnesty International has proof of 2000 executions in China in 2005, but the real figure may be upwards of 8000!!

That's a sobering 24 a day

They have even invested in mobile execution chambers to speed up the process. You couldn't make this up.

I remember watching a 'Death parade' in Suzhou in 2004, the roads were lined with 'Soldiers' and my female companion asked the taxi driver (For me) what was going on?
He theatrically drew his finger accross his throat and started laughing, before hoiking and gobbing out of the window.

The sentenced man was standing on a flatbed lorry, shackled to the floor and to the guards, looking extremely hacked off.

I really regret not having any piccies.

Nice place China

Either I am as thick as Chairman Mao's hemorrhoids, or you have that dubious honour.

At this stage I wouldn't like to commit myself.

Is there a little 'techie' secret to this?

Hmmm....should work. Failing that try this, click on forums, go to images and scroll down page 2. I warn you it's a bit of an extreme site 8O

What an unusal site!

Still no luck and am starting to lose interest.

My secretary uses this computer so I'd better be a bit careful. I'll need to get one or two more if I want to access Chinese mobile death chambers and other such delights.

Thanks anyway
