China

  1. Chinese Government Wants Its Citizens to Use Real Names on the Internet

    Ah, yes, the time honored argument about whether or not people should use their real names on the Internet. While the common use of pseudonyms can indirectly give bullies and harassers freedom from accountability, requiring people to identify themselves can have a chilling effect on those who use them as shields against harassment, and especially political persecution. Guess which side the argument of China is on?

    Peggy is not amused.

    both Agent Carter and Fox drama Empire have both been ordered off the Internet by the State General Administration for Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), who regulate all media in the country.

  3. Chinese Restaurant Lets Beautiful People Eat Free, Reinforces Society’s Beauty Bubble Standards

    Paging Dr. Drew.

    If you're feeling particularly self-confident, there's a restaurant that will literally subject your face to a panel of judges and if they find your face aesthetically pleasing, they'll grant you a free meal. You bubble dwellers will have to go all the way to China to get your free food, but at least your Chinese is probably as good as Jack Donaghy and Dr. Drew Baird's French.

  4. Call Of Duty Online‘s Full Trailer Would Be Great Even If It Didn’t Have Chris Evans

    But him being in it doesn't hurt. Of course.

    Seriously, this China-only Call of Duty trailer could have had an unusually buff potato playing the part that Chris Evans plays and I would have loved it. Then again, that might be because I'm a sucker for that trope where TV shows jump back and forth between being inside and outside a video game. And that trope of when somebody saves a comrade in arms with a pithy action movie slogan and then later they use the same line while saving him. Oh, and zombies. Always zombies.

  5. John Cusak, Adrien Brody, and Jackie Chan in Bonkers Trailer for Dragon Blade

    Yes, that's John Cusack, Adrien Brody, and Jackie Chan in what is reportedly the most expensive movie in the history of China's film industry. Dragon Blade is based on semi-historically-supported legends of a lost Roman legion that managed to wander into China. As you can see from this trailer, the money didn't go towards the acting, at least for the English speaking roles. Does it seem like Brody and Cusack have been dubbed over to anybody else?

  6. The Chinese Government Wants to Ban Puns. Where’s the Pun in That?

    So they just banned 90% of our job.

    The Chinese government is now seeking to ban wordplay of all kinds from broadcast communications, ads, and politics. I guess they're tired of cunning linguists.

  7. Things We Saw Today: Priorities in Game Development Might Not Be Great for Diversity

    Yes, we're still upset about this one.

    "Look at how the feces squish and plop with realistic physics! Hmm? What do you mean by, 'priorities'?"

  8. Whoever Translated Guardians of the Galaxy Into Chinese Did A Really Bad Job

    What a bunch of a-holes!

  10. Live Broadcast of Panda Birth Cancelled: Turns Out The Panda Wasn’t Really Pregnant

    I think I saw a Maury episode like this once.

    Real talk: you want to know why pandas are so severely endangered? Sure, poachers and other humans encroaching on their habitats is the primary factor, but it's also partially because pandas are literally the worst at getting pregnant.
